Davante Adams Plans To Remain In Vegas

Sunday, April 14, 10:45 PM

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams, while speaking at his youth football camp, made it known he plans to remain with the team. Things were chaotic for Las Vegas last season, with Adams expressing his unhappiness with his role in the offense. Not only that, the franchise fired head coach Josh McDaniels in October, resulting in Antonio Pierce taking over. But now that Pierce no longer has an interim tag attached to his name; there's optimism things will go much more smoothly this season. The 31-year-old is coming off a rough season, amassing 1,144 yards and eight touchdowns off 103 catches. Yet, it appears Adams is the happiest he's been in a while, meaning he could easily turn things around during the 2024-25 campaign and return to being an elite fantasy wideout, assuming the team gets stable play at the quarterback spot.

Jaylen Waddle Agrees To Three-Year Extension With Dolphins

Thursday, May 30, 10:17 AM

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is signing a three-year contract extension worth up to $84.75 million that includes $76 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The $28.25 million average salary ranks fourth among NFL wideouts, trailing only A.J. Brown, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Tyreek Hill. Since entering the league as a first-round pick in 2021 out of Alabama, Waddle has hauled in 251 of his 361 targets for 3,385 yards and 18 touchdowns. He's caught at least 72 passes and racked up 1,000-plus yards in each of his first three campaigns. Although he is the clear No. 2 wide receiver in Miami behind Hill, he remains a strong fantasy football asset with WR1 upside in an explosive passing offense. Last season marked his first year without a WR1 finish, but he should bounce back after setting career lows on catches, yards, and touchdowns. He's a screaming value at his low-end WR2 price tag in early fantasy drafts.
