Valdes-Scantling did not catch a pass in Sunday's 35-20 victory over the Texans but did have one carry for nine yards. Valdes-Scantling played by far the second-most snaps among Packers wideouts and was targeted four times, but he ultimately only ended up with the lone touch on the ground. He should continue seeing the field plenty until Allen Lazard (abdomen) returns, and his next matchup will come against a Vikings team he recorded 96 yards and a score against Week 1. However, with just 91 yards from scrimmage over his last four games, it's tough to trust Valdes-Scantling in fantasy lineups right now.
Valdes-Scantling was targeted five times and caught three passes for 32 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers. Valdes-Scantling wound up playing the most snaps among Packers receivers Week 6, but he was held in check by a Tampa team that allowed quarterback Aaron Rodgers to complete just 16 passes before coming out of the game. It's encouraging for Valdes-Scantling's fantasy prospects that he played 84 percent of the offensive snaps for the third straight game, but what isn't so promising are his averages of 2.8 receptions and 36.5 yards per contest -- not to mention zero touchdowns -- since his outstanding work Week 1.
Valdes-Scantling caught four of eight targets for 45 yards in Monday night's 30-16 win over the Falcons. Valdes-Scantling spearheaded Green Bay's receiving corps on a night when top options Davante Adams (hamstring) and Allen Lazard (abdomen) were both sidelined. While their absences enabled Valdes-Scantling to garner a season high in targets, it was tight end Robert Tonyan and tailback Jamaal Williams who paced the Packers in yards, as both came close to 100. Although Valdes-Scantling helped move the sticks here and there, his final output wasn't anything out of the ordinary. Nonetheless, his experience Monday should help as he prepares to start alongside Adams once Green Bay returns from its Week 5 bye.
Valdes-Scantling caught just one of four targets for five yards in Sunday's 37-30 win over the Saints. Davante Adams (hamstring) was unable to suit up for this primetime matchup, opening the door for either Valdes-Scantling or Allen Lazard to grasp the No. 1 wideout role. The latter was able to seize the opportunity, posting a monstrous 6-146-1 line. Aaron Rodgers is looking like his former MVP self again, so there could be enough balls to go around for all three of the Packers' top receivers in most matchups. That said, it has become clear that Valdes-Scantling is third in the pecking order when all three WRs are healthy. The 25-year-old's fantasy prospects would rise in a favorable matchup if Adams is forced to miss next Monday's game against the Falcons.
Valdes-Scantling caught three of seven targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 42-21 win over the Lions. Valdes-Scantling was one target and four yards short of Aaron Jones' team-leading totals as No. 1 wide receiver Davante Adams left the game with a hamstring injury. If Adams can't go in Week 3 against the Saints, Valdes-Scantling would be an enticing fantasy option as Aaron Rodgers' top target on the outside.
