Packers' Jeff Janis: Makes Packers' roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Janis will open the regular season on the Packers' 53-man roster.

The Packers drafted a couple receivers later in this year's draft, but neither of them was able to overtake Janis, and he will have a roster spot heading into Week 1 for the fourth season in a row. He does not figure to see much action on offense, but is on track to be the Packers' primary kick returner and also play a key role on other special teams units.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Another productive contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Janis caught three passes for 63 yards in Saturday's preseason victory over the Redskins.

Janis was productive for the second straight exhibition outing and is averaging 20.8 yards on his four preseason receptions while also adding a score. Given the Packers' wide receiver depth, it's more of a question if he'll make the cut than if he'll be involved in the offense when the regular season begins, but he's a notable special teams player and is the only Packer to return a kick this preseason, so he's looking like a good bet to break camp on the roster.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Scores in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Janis caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in Thursday's preseason victory over the Eagles.

Janis made a nice move to get open for the score, but he also dropped the only other ball thrown his direction. He has a good chance to make the cut given his special teams abilities, but it's unlikely he will be anything more than a depth option at the wide receiver position if he does.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Unlikely to break out in fourth season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Janis is unlikely to be anything more than a special-teams player in 2017, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

The highlight of Janis' three-year career to date is likely his performance in the 2015 playoff game against the Cardinals in which the 2014 seventh-rounder caught a Hail Mary touchdown to force OT. Other than that, Janis has only flashed on occasion as a situational downfield threat. Thankfully, he's one of the best special-teams players the Packers employ, which should help his case in securing a roster spot ahead of the 2017 campaign.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Catches 11 passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Janis finished this season with 11 receptions (on 19 targets) for 93 yards and a touchdown in 16 games played. He also rushed twice for 38 yards and another score.

Janis' size and speed combination has made him an alluring commodity since entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2014, and although this season was his most productive yet, the Saginaw Valley product remains a sparingly-used target in Green Bay's offense. Until he becomes more consistently involved, Janis figures to remain on the periphery of fantasy radars, but the fact that 2017 is the final year on his current contract could motivate Janis to make a bigger impact next season.
