The season opener last week saw Davante Adams targeted early and often. The result was a big day with the All Pro receiver hauling in ten catches for 141 yards and a TD. Week two he was a different story.

While Adams still had a TD catch, he had just one other catch for 11 yards the rest of the day.

He was still out on the field. He led all Raiders receivers with 65 snaps (97%), leaving the field for just two snaps the whole game. And yet his receiving numbers were the lowest on the team. Mack Hollins led the way with 66 yards on five catches, followed by Hunter Renfrow with 59 yards on seven catches — though two of those were then fumbled.

Even the tight ends and running backs had more catches and yards. Darren Waller six catches for 50 yards and a touchdown while Foster Moreau added three catches for 30 yards. Ameer Abdullah had 23 yards on his one catch and Josh Jacobs matched Adams’s total of 12 yards on his one catch as well.

Both of Adams’s catches came in the first half when the team went up 20-0. In the second half, he was targeted just once. ONE. TIME. Meanwhile the Cardinals were making their big comeback to tie it at 23 and take the game to overtime.

This is not a criticism of Adams per se. If anything it’s a criticism of the coach and the quarterback. How in the world does your best player not get the ball in the second half? I mean, there’s taking your foot off the gas and then there’s whatever that was.
