1. Davante Adams

We haven’t seen Davante Adams since the first half of week two against Detroit. It was sometime during the second quarter when Adams injured his hamstring and we haven’t seen him since. Adams missed two-and-a-half games, yet the offense has hummed along and hasn’t missed a beat.

Now the key will be to integrate Adams seamlessly into an offense that is cruising along.

Creativity has been key for head coach Matt LaFleur in Adams’ absence. The way he has used not just Aaron Jones but Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan, and Jamaal Williams has been nothing short of spectacular. If he can keep that creativity while getting back his number one receiver, this offense should be scary good. Not that it wasn’t already.

After four weeks of game inactivity, Adams should be good to go and chomping at the bit.

It’s likely Tampa would have Carlton Davis follow Adams all around the field as he is their best defensive back. However, Davis is questionable at best with an abdominal injury and did not practice to start the week.

If Davis can’t play, Adams could be in for a big day in his return to action.

It will be good to see Adams back on the field, but it’ll be even better to see the offense not miss a beat and gain another dimension with the return of their best receiver.
