An utterly disgraceful and unacceptable downward trend in Davante Adams’ fantasy production continued Monday Night with perhaps the worst QB performance of the year by Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo returned to the starting lineup to smash the dreams of Adams and his fantasy managers against the Lions, delivering just two catchable targets out of a meager six total on the night en route to Adams’ 2nd-worst single-game fantasy output as a Raider. That disappointing performance put an exclamation mark on a disastrous, history-making stretch of games for the former Packers superstar:
Through Weeks 5-8, Davante Adams has caught just 14 passes in four games –the fewest receptions over a four-game stretch he’s had since all the way back in 2016. Since averaging over eight catches per game over the first four games of the season, Adams has hit rock bottom over the last four, culminating in the one-catch debacle we were all forced to bear witness to under the Monday night lights on Halloween. Scary stuff.
This isn’t just a Davante Adams problem, either. Fellow teammate Jakobi Meyers, who had been staying afloat in fantasy even with the revolving door at QB, saw just one target overall against the Lions. The situation in Las Vegas doesn’t have the looks of one that will improve any time soon, and with the Raiders as the only team remaining yet to score more than 21 points in a game, Davante Adams and co. could see this dry spell continue further into the season.
