    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: No receptions in Week 7

    Marquez 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 Green Bay 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.

    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Bottled up by Buccaneers

    Marquez 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 Green Bay 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.

    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Makes four grabs

    Marquez 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 Green Bay 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.

    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Fails to capitalize on opportunity

    Marquez 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 Green Bay 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.

    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Three catches as Adams hurts hammy

    Marquez 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.

    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Scores in season-opening win

    Marquez Valdes-Scantling secured four of six targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in the Green Bay Packers' 43-34 win over the Vikings on Sunday.The oft-maligned third-year wideout, who disappeared for long stretches last season, was a surprising beneficiary of a prolific passing day by Aaron Rodgers on Sunday. Valdes-Scantling was a distant second to Davante Adams in both receptions and receiving yards on the Packers, but he locked in a productive fantasy day courtesy of a pretty 45-yard scoring grab with 14 seconds remaining in the first half. The strong start to the season is a welcome sight for Green Bay's third receiver, and he'll look to carry over the momentum into a Week 2 home battle versus the Lions next Sunday.

    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Enters season third on depth chart

    The Green Bay Packers list Marquez Valdes-Scantling as their No. 3 receiver on their first unofficial depth chart heading into Sunday's season opener at Minnesota, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.Though his chances of cracking a regular role in the Packers' three-receiver formations increased greatly after Devin Funchess opted out of the 2020 season, Valdes-Scantling still had to earn a starting role in training camp. He appears to have done just that, beating out Equanimeous St. Brown and Malik Taylor for the No. 3 job. Even if Valdes-Scantling resumes handling the 60-plus percent snap share he routinely enjoyed in the first half of the 2019 season, he'll still likely be a tertiary option in the passing game behind top wideouts Davante Adams and Allen Lazard and running back Aaron Jones.

    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Packers remain hopeful

    According to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, the Green Bay Packers are "counting on Marquez Valdes-Scantling rediscovering his health and confidence" and filling the No. 3 receiver spot on the depth chart.Valdes-Scantling got off to a fine start in 2019, tallying 21 receptions, 416 receiving yards and two scores over his first seven games. However, he went dormant after that, tallying just 36 yards the rest of the way while battling lower-leg injuries and losing his spot in the offense. Despite the poor finish, Valdes-Scantling has shown flashes both years he has played in the league, and the Packers are banking on him bouncing back from last season's quiet second half. He will have to earn his spot, though, with a host of other players competing for the No. 3 job behind Davante Adams and Allen Lazard.

    Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Falls well short of expectations

    Marquez Valdes-Scantling finished with 26 catches for 452 yards and two touchdowns over 16 regular-season games in 2019.Valdes-Scantling started the season as the inherent No. 2 wide receiver behind Davante Adams, and the team expected big things out of the second-year pro after showing flashes of a deep threat in his rookie campaign. The 25-year-old was still good for a few deep balls, recording 17.4 yards per catch, but he slowly saw his playing time drop as the season went on. He posted just four catches for 32 yards over the final eight regular-season games, and he logged just six offensive snaps between two playoff contests. He ceded duties to Allen Lazard, Geronimo Allison and Jake Kumerow -- all undrafted free agents. Valdes-Scantling -- a 2018 fifth-round pick -- has two years remaining on his rookie contract, but he'll struggle to carve out a role in 2020. The Green Bay Packers will likely have Equanimeous St. Brown (ankle) back in the fold, and they'll surely re-sign Lazard while Allison and Kumerow could be options as well. That's not to mention the likelihood they pick a receiver or two in the draft. MVS has the raw talent to retain a roster spot with a 4.37-second 40, but he'll need to show improvement this offseason.
