Friday PM Update: Adams logged another full practice on Friday and doesn’t have an injury designation for the game on Sunday.
Thursday update: Things are looking up for the Raiders star wide receiver, as he was upgraded to a full practice on Thursday. He missed most of last week’s practice with an illness and then was limited with the same illness on Wednesday, so he appears to be finally feeling better.
The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off an embarrassing shutout loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. They are set to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9 and are hoping to bounce back. In the blowout loss, wide receiver Davante Adams had one reception for three yards. He had dealt with an illness last week that kept him out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Adams was limited to start this week and is citing the same illness.

Fantasy football implications for Week 9
Adams had an outlier of a game in Week 8, and it shouldn't take long for him to bounce back and return to form. The illness he is dealing with is concerning, though. He fell well short of the flu game expectation that fantasy managers were hoping for. It will be a good sign if he can log more practice time this week. If he is active he is going to be tough not to start. If Adams sits, look for tight end Darren Waller, if he plays, and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow to see an uptick in usage.
