2019 Fantasy Outlook
Adams landed a spot on the roster following a preseason in which he was the most productive tight end in camp. He's one of five tight ends to claim a roster spot, though Kahale Warring (concussion) is not expected to see the field immediately. Given that five, or even four, tight ends are uncommon in today's NFL, expect some kind of winnowing to occur. Read Past Outlooks

Adams was released from the Texans' practice squad with a non-football illness designation, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Adams was signed to the practice squad less than a week ago after being cut from the active roster. Once Adams is healthy again, he'll likely seek another practice squad role.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Adams is vying for a spot as the team's third tight end behind Rhett Ellison and Evan Engram. Adams is a good athlete and could carve out a modest role should anything happen to Engram, as Ellison is mostly a blocker.
Last year's sixth-round pick, Adams was used sparingly as a rookie, but rather than placing further focus on his development, the Giants drafted Evan Engram in the first round this year. As such, Adams will probably do most of his work in a special teams capacity -- assuming he makes the roster.
At 6-5, 247, with 4.64 speed, the Giants' sixth-round pick is the team's most athletic pass-catching tight end. At present, he'll vie for a role behind starter Larry Donnell and backup Will Tye, but neither is a major roadblock should Adams impress the team as a rookie. Nonetheless, even high pedigree rookie tight ends rarely contribute out of the gate, so he's more of a consideration in keeper leagues than re-draft ones.
