Monitor reports to see if there's any indication if he'll play his usual number of starter snaps, but this is great news not only for Adams but fantasy owners in a plus match-up against the Cowboys.

Packers WR Davante Adams (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 5. Adams still has to clear his concussion protocol, so we should know more by the close of business on Saturday. If he’s out, Geronimo Allison looks like a very Sneaky Start against a shaky Dallas secondary. Allison caught 6 passes for 122 yards with Randall Cobb sidelined against the Bengals.

The Packers are down both starting tackles so they may keep Martellus Bennett in to block more often than usual. Cobb should be able to pick up where he left off. In seven quarters of football, Cobb caught 15 passes for 145 yards, which is an 8.6-catch, 83-yard pace over four quarters. Cobb had a goose egg in his last matchup with the Bears, but in three previous meetings, he averaged 7.3 catches for 69 yards and 0.7 touchdowns.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 3. It doesn’t look like he’ll play in Week 3. if he’s out, Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison get a bump. In 12 games that either Cobb or Nelson have missed since the 2015 season, Adams has seen 8.9 targets per game, which represents a 24% increase over the 7.2 targets he typically sees with the Green Bay receiving corps at full strength.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) did not practice Wednesday. At this point, Cobb is far more questionable for Week 3 than Jordy Nelson, who practiced fully on Wednesday. Cobb has been more involved in the offense this year (15 targets through two weeks).
The Green Bay Packers' offense put on a disastrous display before garbage time on Sunday night, failing to keep pace with Matt Ryan and the Falcons, and there's a chance things won't get much better this coming weekend. That's because the Packers might be without their best receiver.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jordy Nelson is 50-50 with a quad injury.
Cobb is also a bit banged up which could mean a bigger role for Allison. However it could also mean more targets for the more established receivers as well.
Receiver Jordy Nelson hobbled off the field after eight offensive plays because of a quad injury, and defensive tackle Mike Daniels pulled a hamstring on the Falcons' first drive. Receiver Randall Cobb tried to play through a shoulder injury and finally dropped out in the fourth quarter.
Cobb did say he thinks he'll be OK. But for Nelson, it was an injury to the same leg in which he tore his ACL in 2015, ESPN said. The story added Nelson tried to work through it, riding a stationary bike and jogging on the sideline, but was ruled out after halftime. Other outlets report Nelson he took a knee to his quad.

But this isn’t the offense of the last few years, where McCarthy sends out three receivers, a tight end and a running back for snap after snap. Since 2013, only four teams have run more plays with three receivers on the field than the Packers, according to ESPN Stats & Information. In that same stretch, no team has run fewer plays with multiple tight ends on the field than the Packers.
The story pointed to an example where the Pack went with a two-TE package along with Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams at WR on first and second down before eventually having Cobb replace Kendricks on third down. Granted it's only preseason, but Cobb seems to be the WR who will get less time if there are two TEs on the field.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 19. With Nelson out, Geronimo Allison will likely pick up most of his snaps. He played 58% of the snaps against the Giants, and had a quiet game, but that was with Nelson playing 23% of the snaps. In the two previous games, with Randall Cobb sidelined, Allison played 73% and 81% of the snaps, posting 4-66 (on seven targets) against the Vikings and 4-91-1 (on six targets) against the Lions.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Cobb is coming off of a stellar 5-116-3 (7) effort against the Giants in the Wildcard Round. With Jordy Nelson out, he should see plenty of quality targets from Aaron Rodgers.
Geronimo Allison will likely pick up most of his snaps. He played 58% of the snaps against the Giants, and had a quiet game, but that was with Nelson playing 23% of the snaps.
