The Las Vegas Raiders have listed star wideout Davante Adams as questionable for their Thursday Night Football matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders. 

Adams, who is dealing with an illness, has been held under 100 receiving yards in every game since Sept. 24 of this season. The Raiders’ inconsistent play at quarterback has not helped the star wideout succeed. 

Las Vegas has a winnable game in Week 15 against the Chargers, but after scoring zero points in Week 14, the team needs Adams to be on the field this week. 

Here’s the latest on his injury for this game:

Davante Adams OVER 6.5 receptions

It’s hard to bet any Adams props right now since Aidan O’Connell and the Raiders quarterbacks have been so inconsistent, but I’ll take a shot on his receptions prop against a weak Chargers defense. 

Adams, despite having just 53 yards last week, did make seven catches for the second time in three outings. 

He’s cleared this number five times in his last 11 games, and at even money, he’s worth a shot to go OVER this prop in a game that Las Vegas should win with several key Chargers out of the lineup.
