Packers hoping to have Davante Adams Week 8

ESPN - [Full Article]

Aaron Rodgers might finally be able to throw deep again, as the Green Bay Packers' quarterback likely will have receiver Davante Adams back for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that he expects Adams to play in the matchup of 6-0 teams. Adams missed the last three games because of a recurring sprained ankle that dates to Week 2 and includes the bye week.

When asked if Adams would play Sunday, McCarthy said, "I would think so."

Fantasy Impact: 

That could be a significant addition to the Packers' offense, which has struggled to make plays down the field. Rodgers ranks just 18th in passing yards in part because the offense lacks a deep threat. Rodgers has completed just three passes that traveled more than 30 yards in the air this season, according to ESPN Stats & Information, the story said. Adams may put a dent in James Jones' production and would certainly seem to bump back Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis.
