2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

The Texans signed Adams to a reserve/future contract on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Adams joined Houston's practice squad in early October after spending his first two years in the league with the Giants. A 2016 sixth-round pick, Adams has 24 receptions for 214 yards and a touchdown in 29 career games. He'll look to add depth to Houston's young tight end group in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
