Packers' Jeff Janis: Receives season-high 41 snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Janis played a season-high 41 snaps in Thursday's victory over the Bears, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, and caught two passes for nine yards.

With fellow receivers Ty Montgomery mainly playing running back and Jared Abbrederis (thigh) inactive, Janis was the Packers' clear fourth receiver and was on the field for nearly 50 percent of the team's offensive plays. Janis did see a few extra opportunities Thursday, finishing with five targets, but that did not lead to any significant production, and he still has totaled just four receptions for 23 yards on the year. Janis figures to continue seeing a healthy number of snaps as long as Montgomery is working out of the backfield, but he will remain a minor player in the Packers' offense as long as the receivers ahead of him on the depth chart remain healthy.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Seeing more snaps
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Janis caught two passes for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Janis' Week 6 fantasy production was minimal, but he is showing signs of an increased role in the Packers' offense; his receptions were his first two of the season, and the 32 snaps he received Sunday, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, easily surpassed his previous season high of 13, set just a week before. Janis slots in either fourth or fifth among the Packers' seven receivers, but he could be either third or fourth in Week 7 if the head injury fellow receiver Davante Adams suffered Sunday prevents him from suiting up.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Plays season-high 13 snaps in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Janis did not catch a pass in Sunday's victory over the Giants, but he did finish fourth among Packers receivers with a season-high 13 snaps, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Janis totaled just three offensive snaps over the first three weeks while completing his recovery from a broken hand, but he was able to practice without a cast for the last week and seemingly made a move up the depth chart during the Packers' Week 4 bye. His 13 snaps were far behind the totals of the Packers' top three wideouts -- Randall Cobb finished third in that group with 55 snaps -- so Janis isn't pushing for a prominent role in the offense just yet. However, the Packers have been looking for the deep ball more often over their last couple games, so Janis could continue seeing more opportunities than the other trio of reserve receivers, a group that totaled just nine offensive snaps in all Sunday.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Sheds club on broken hand
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Janis practiced without a cast on Monday, ESPN reports.

Janis has been largely contained to special teams work thus far into the 2016 campaign as he's been forced to play with a club-like cast since suffering a break in his hand during training camp. However, even though he saw minimal time at receiver in Week 3, it remains to be seen how soon he may become a legitimate factor in the Packers' offense, as offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett deemed Janis a "work in progress" even before he had succumbed to injury.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Health appears to be improving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Janis received his first offensive snaps of the season in Sunday's victory over the Lions, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Janis again sported a cast Sunday with his broken hand not quite at 100 percent, but the Packers still threw him out as a receiver on three occasions for the first time this season. He may be able to shed the cast following the Packers' Week 4 bye, but given the depth of the team's receiving corps, it remains to be seen if his role will increase at all.
