Is Davante Adams playing Monday night?
Adams (hamstring) got in limited practices all week and is expected to play Monday night against Atlanta. Because hamstring injuries can be aggravated relatively easily, Adams will have to make it through pre-game warmups, but chances are he’ll be suiting up this week.
As long as Adams is active he’s a must-start, so his owners should plan to use him. If he’s a surprise scratch, the obvious pivot is Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who’s owned in 56 percent of Yahoo leagues. Darrius Shepherd and Malik Taylor would be next up on Green Bay’s depth chart. Taylor has more size but Shepherd played ahead of him last week (23 snaps to four), so he would likely be the better emergency pickup. TE Robert Tonyan would also be in play for a flex spot.
If either Julio Jones (hamstring) or Calvin Ridley (ankle) is out, you could also pivot to Atlanta’s Olamide Zaccheaus, who would have boom-or-bust potential. There are also some potential streams from the Patriots-Chiefs game, assuming that gets played, including Mecole Hardman and N’Keal Harry.
