Packers' Jeff Janis: Poised to take 'next step'
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

At last week's Combine, head coach Mike McCarthy pondered whether Janis can "take that next step" in 2016, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "Great kid, hard-working, very powerful," McCarthy added. "But there were just a lot of things, when he does them, they're for the first time. Hopefully we're out of that phase of his development...He made the step in your second year that you look for. He did it first on special teams."

Janis was a persona non grata for much of his second campaign, primarily because he was raw as a receiver. First, though, he had to gain the trust of McCarthy on special teams, which turned into a season-long affair and resulted in exactly two regular season catches for the second year in a row. Pressed into duty in the divisional round at Arizona due to Randall Cobb's lung injury, Janis kickstarted the offense, corralling seven of 11 targets for 145 yards and two touchdowns. The performance endured Janis further to the coaching staff, but his development in the offseason will ultimately determine his next step as a professional.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Records 145 receiving yards, game-tying touchdown in divisional round loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Janis secured seven of 11 targets for 145 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 26-20 divisional round overtime loss to the Cardinals. He also tallied 77 yards on three kickoff returns.

The second-year pro took full advantage of the extra opportunity afforded him after Randall Cobb's exit with a chest injury, setting career-high totals in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns. The 6'3 receiver's leaping grab of an Aaron Rodgers desperation heave as time expired in regulation helped send the game into overtime, heroics that were quickly overshadowed by Larry Fitzgerald's outstanding performance in the extra period. Janis nevertheless provided a glimpse of his physical tools, and will enter 2016 offseason workouts fighting to move up the wide receiver depth chart.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Makes big impact quietly in Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Janis did not record a catch in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

While Janis was held without a reception Sunday for the ninth time in 10 games this season, he did make an impact on the game, returning a kickoff 70 yards and drawing a 50-yard pass interference penalty, which occurred on drives that saw the Packers put points on the scoreboard. He has made a number of key plays for the Packers this season, but figures to continue playing a minimal role in the offense.

Packers' Jeff Janis: shut out in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jeff Janis did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

Janis was the Green Bay Packers ' fourth receiver Sunday with Ty Montgomery (ankle) inactive, but he did not even see a snap on offense, let alone make a catch, as the Packers stuck with three-receiver sets for the majority of Sunday's game.

Packers' Jeff Janis: puts up 79 yards in Week 6 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jeff Janis caught two passes for 79 yards in Sunday's victory over the Chargers.

Janis saw an increased workload Sunday after Ty Montgomery left the game with an ankle injury, and he responded by making a couple big plays in the passing game. Both his catches came on broken plays, but they both also displayed Janis' superior athleticism. Janis' showing could help him earn more snaps moving forward, but the Green Bay Packers are on bye in Week 7, and fellow receiver Davante Adams (ankle) is likely to return to action the following week, so Janis figures to be no higher than fourth on the depth chart in Week 8 even if Montgomery is unable to play.
