  • Packers' Malik Heath: Makes 13 appearances as rookie

    Heath was targeted 24 times and had 15 receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown over 13 regular-season games in 2023.

    The undrafted rookie earned himself a roster spot and hung onto it all season, and although he did not do a lot on the stat sheet he did have a few moments. He could have been more involved if Green Bay did not have a glut of productive receivers, but alas he finished his first season sixth on the depth chart at his position. All five wideouts ahead of him are set to return in 2024, but he figures to remain a part of the mix.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Tacks on three receptions

    Heath was targeted four times and caught three passes for nine yards in Sunday's 17-9 victory over the Bears.

    Heath opened Sunday's contest as the fifth option at the wideout spot, and he finished it fourth with fellow wideout Romeo Doubs (chest) exiting early. Heath caught at least one pass in the final eight games of the regular season, but he will remain primarily a depth piece when the playoffs get underway.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Held to one reception

    Heath was targeted twice and caught one pass for 13 yards in Sunday's 33-10 victory over the Vikings.

    Heath was pretty busy Sunday, finishing third among Packers wideouts with 46 of a possible 74 snaps, but he made only a minor mark in the box score. Three of the receivers ahead of him on the depth chart are banged up, so he could see more opportunities in Week 18. However, given how Bo Melton played the last two weeks, Heath would likely be no higher than the third option at his position in any scenario.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Tacks on three receptions

    Heath was targeted three times and caught three passes for 29 yards in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Heath saw a few extra snaps with fellow wideout Christian Watson (hamstring) sidelined again, and he recorded at least one reception for the fifth time in as many weeks. Although Heath is contributing at least somewhat consistently these days, it will be tough for him to make much of an impact unless two players ahead of him on the depth chart are unavailable, and even in that scenario he would still be Green Bay's third option at the wide receiver spot.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Hauls in first touchdown pass

    Heath was targeted twice and caught one pass for six yards and a touchdown in Monday's 24-22 loss to the Giants.

    Heath nearly notched his first touchdown on the penultimate play the Packers ran in Monday's contest, and he wound up reaching the end zone for the first time as a professional just one play later. Heath did not do a lot Monday, but he did play his most snaps in a game since Week 1. He could play an expanded role again in Week 15 with Christian Watson (hamstring) and Dontayvion Wicks (ankle) injured.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Hauls in four passes

    Heath was targeted four times and caught four passes for 46 yards in Thursday's 29-22 victory over the Lions.

    Heath worked as Green Bay's fourth receiver Thursday with fellow rookie wideout Dontayvion Wicks (concussion/knee) unavailable, and he turned in easily the most productive game of the season. The undrafted rookie out of Ole Miss will likely lose out on some snaps if Wicks plays in Week 13 versus the Chiefs, but Thursday's effort only solidified his standing on the depth chart.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Makes first career catch

    Heath caught his only target for seven yards in Sunday's 23-20 victory over the Chargers.

    Heath hardly stood out in Week 11, but he did tally his most snaps since Week 1 and recorded the first reception of his career. The rookie has surpassed fellow wideout Samori Toure at the bottom of on the depth chart and heads into Week 12 as Green Bay's No. 5 option at the wide receiver spot.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Healthy scratch in Week 8

    Heath (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Vikings.

    Heath will take a seat for a fourth straight game as the Packers look to get back into the win column in Week 8. The wide receiver will continue to wait for his next chance to be active on gameday.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Shut out in debut

    Heath did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 38-20 victory over the Bears.

    Heath garnered a start in his first NFL appearance, but he made only a minor mark in the box score and wound up tied for third among Packers wideouts with 29 offensive snaps. The undrafted rookie steadily moved up the depth chart after joining Green Bay in late April, but he was unable to make a Week 1 impact even with Christian Watson (hamstring) out.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Earns spot on 53-man roster

    The Packers informed Heath on Tuesday that he's made the 53-man roster, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Heath joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent this offseason, and he made an impact over the team's three exhibition games. He secured 12 of 16 targets for 146 yards during the preseason and opened Saturday's preseason win over the Seahawks with the starters. He'll now attempt to carve out a role in Green Bay's offense once the regular season gets underway.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Makes final statement

    Heath was targeted seven times and caught four passes for 35 yards in Saturday's 19-15 preseason victory over the Seahawks.

    It was not a huge showing for Heath in the box score, but it should be noted that he opened Saturday's game with the starters and wound up with three more targets than any of his teammates. The undrafted rookie has flashed consistently all the way back to the offseason, and it seems more likely than not that he gets good news come cutdown day.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Makes mark again

    Heath was targeted five times and caught five passes for 75 yards in Saturday's 21-17 preseason loss to the Patriots.

    The undrafted free agent has not played like one since linking up with the Packers over the offseason, and his showing in the second exhibition contest certainly did nothing to damage his chances of coming away with a roster spot when final cuts are made in just over a week.

  • Packers' Malik Heath: Hauls in three passes

    Heath was targeted four times and caught three passes for 36 yards in Friday's 36-19 preseason victory over the Bengals.

    Heath made some noise over the offseason despite being an undrafted free agent, and he did the same in his first professional appearance. He remains a ways down the depth chart, but he presumably sits sixth in the pecking order heading into Green Bay's second exhibition contest.
