Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Falls well short of expectations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Catches one pass in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was targeted once and had one reception for eight yards in Sunday's divisional round win over the Seahawks.

Valdes-Scantling appeared to sit fourth on the depth chart at the wide receiver position heading into the playoffs, but he operated as the fifth receiver Sunday and took the field for just five offensive plays.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Targeted seven times in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was targeted seven times and caught two passes for 19 yards in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Valdes-Scantling did not do much in the box score in the season finale, but he did rack up his most receiving yards in a game since Week 7 and was targeted as many times as he was in the previous four games combined. His showing in the regular-season finale slots him into the No. 4 WR spot heading into the postseason.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: First reception since Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling caught his only target for six yards in Monday's victory over the Vikings.

Valdes-Scantling caught his first pass since Week 12, but it went for minimal yardage and he was still on the field for just 11 offensive snaps. As has been the case, he remains only a depth option for the Packers at this time.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Snap count declines again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was targeted once but did not catch a pass in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Valdes-Scantling played a season-low 10 snaps Week 14 but logged even fewer Week 15, taking the field just five more times after failing to haul in a long pass on the Packers' first offensive play that likely would have resulted in a touchdown. Valdes-Scantling has only two receptions for 11 yards since Week 7, and with him barely seeing the field the last two weeks, there's little reason to expect much of anything from him in the Packers' Week 16 matchup with the Vikings.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Plays season-low 10 snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling played just 10 snaps and was not targeted in Sunday's victory over Washington.

The Packers used their tight ends more often than usual and mainly played three wide receivers Sunday, which resulted in Valdes-Scantling seeing the field less than he had in any other game this season. Valdes-Scantling has now totaled just two receptions for 11 yards since Week 7, which all but eliminates him as a fantasy option Week 15, even against a Bears defense that has been regularly beaten by opposing wide receivers of late.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Held without catch again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was targeted twice but did not catch a pass in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Valdes-Scantling finished a distant fourth among Packers receivers in snaps and was held without a reception for the third time in four games. Simply put, there is little reason to expect any help from him in fantasy lineups these days.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Sliding down depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Valdes-Scantling and quarterback Aaron Rodgers nearly connected on a long touchdown in the fourth quarter, but the wide receiver caught the ball out of bounds and ultimately finished Sunday's contest with just one reception. Injuries may have helped explain Valdes-Scantling going two straight games without a catch heading into the Packers' Week 11 bye, but it now seems he simply has fallen down the depth chart, as he finished a distant fourth in snaps among Packers wideouts coming out of the week off. His big Week 7 still stands out in his game log, but he seems to be an afterthought at this point -- both for the Packers and fantasy players -- after catching just two passes for 11 yards over his last four games.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Shut out for second straight week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was targeted once and did not catch a pass in Sunday's victory over the Panthers.

It's not clear just how limited Valdes-Scantling has been by his ankle and knee injuries the last few weeks, but he only played 11 snaps Sunday. Since his big showing in Week 7, he has caught just one pass and has been shut out completely each of the last two weeks. A Week 11 bye will buy Valdes-Scantling some recovery time before the Packers' next game, but coming off back-to-back goose eggs, he's going to be tough to trust in Week 12 against a stingy 49ers defense.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Cleared for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

After kicking off the week with back-to-back limited practice sessions, Valdes-Scantling capped it off with a full showing. While his Week 10 opponent (the Panthers) have allowed wide receivers to post just 7.1 yards per target this season, the unit has otherwise yielded 180 receiving yards per game to the position, making Valdes-Scantling a decent enough play Sunday.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Gets 'limited' tag Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Since going off for a season-best 133 receiving yards Week 7, Valdes-Scantling has hauled in just one of four targets for four yards over the last two games. He's been tending to ankle and knee injuries during that span, so there is a built-in excuse for his lack of production. No matter, Davante Adams (toe) is back in action, which should begin to free up Valdes-Scantling for deep shots once he gets healthier.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Practice reps capped Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

In Sunday's loss to the Chargers, Valdes-Scantling failed to record a reception for the first time since Week 3 of the 2018 season. Granted, Davante Adams (toe) was back in action, and the Packers mustered just 184 yards of offense, but the output was disappointing, to say the least. Before Valdes-Scantling gets another chance to make an impression on the box score, he'll look to put in a full practice before the end of the week.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Held without catch in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was targeted twice but did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Valdes-Scantling had his best game of the season in the Packers' Week 7 win over the Raiders, but he has been almost invisible since, tallying just one reception for four yards over two games. Despite the nearly non-existent output, Valdes-Scantling still played the second-most snaps among Packers receivers Sunday, and he has started all but one game this season, so there is reason to believe he can get back on track. He and the rest of the Packers' passing game will be challenged again in Week 10, though, facing a Panthers defense that ranks eighth in the league against the pass and allowed wide receivers to find paydirt just one time over its last three games.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Enters Week 9 minus designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) practiced fully Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

After a pair of limited showings in practice to begin the week, Valdes-Scantling erased any concerns about his health by taking every rep in Friday's session. The 25-year-old should again have a role in the Packers' passing game in Week 9, but his snap and target counts could hinge on the potential return of top wideout Davante Adams (toe), who is being viewed as a game-time decision. Even while Adams has been out for the past four games, Valdes-Scantling has been a spotty contributor, catching only six balls for 203 yards, with 133 of those yards coming in Week 7.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Valdes-Scantling's practice time in Week 8 was limited on account of the same two injuries, but neither prevented him from suiting up in the Packers' eventual win over the Chiefs. He finished with a season-low four receiving yards in that contest, and may not be in store for much of a bounce back in Week 9 against the Chargers, assuming he once again gains clearance to play. The Packers could get Davante Adams (toe) back from a four-game absence this weekend, leaving fewer targets to go around for secondary passing-game options like Valdes-Scantling.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Valdes-Scantling has been hit or miss this season, even with Davante Adams (toe) out of commission the past four games. During that span, most of Valdes-Scantling's production came on two long receptions against the Raiders in Week 7. Adams returned to practice Wednesday, so Packers opponents may soon have to contend with the team's top wide receiver, freeing up the downfield threat that is Valdes-Scantling.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Takes back seat to running backs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) suited up and caught one pass (two targets) for four yards in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Chiefs.

Valdes-Scantling was cleared of his lower-body injuries prior to Sunday's matchup, so his lack of usage can be attributed to coach Matt LaFleur's gameplan to exploit Kansas City's linebackers with passes to running backs. The 25-year-old was coming off of a huge 133-yard performance, so Sunday's dud will leave a sour taste in fantasy owners' mouths. Valdes-Scantling was expected to take over top receiving duties while Davante Adams (toe) remains sidelined, but the wideout is averaging just 1.5 receptions and 2.8 targets in four games as a starter. It is unclear whether Adams will be able to return for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, but even if he doesn't, expectations for MVS should be kept in check against a defense that is more susceptible to the run (21st-ranked defense) as opposed to the pass (5th).

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Kansas City, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Valdes-Scantling upgraded to full practice participation Friday, while Davante Adams (toe) was a non-participant and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game. Valdes-Scantling should be ready to get back to his usual workload, after catching two of three targets for 133 yards and a touchdown on just 33 percent of the offensive snaps last week against the Raiders. He played at least two-thirds of those plays in each of the Packers' first six games.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Downgrades to limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) was limited at Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Despite logging no practice reps last week, Valdes-Scantling still suited up this past Sunday against the Raiders, ripping off two catches (on three targets) for 133 yards and one touchdown while playing 33 percent of the offensive snaps. He was a full participant at Wednesday's walkthrough before taking a step back Thursday, so his status will be one to monitor as the weekend approaches.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Burns Raiders in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling caught two of three targets for 133 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 42-24 win over Oakland.

Valdes-Scantling managed to draw just three targets even with Davante Adams (toe) out and Geronimo Allison (chest) injured. It's hard to imagine how he could have done much more with his opportunities, however. His first haul was a 59-yard shot downfield to open the second half and set up an Aaron Rodgers touchdown run. He did it all himself midway through the fourth quarter, taking a quick out-cut the distance for a 74-yard score. The statuesque sophomore came into Sunday with an impressive 14.9 yards per reception, and that's now up to 19.8 yards per catch. Next up is a Chiefs defense that has been solid keeping opponents in front of them, ranking 11th-best in the league with 10.8 yards per catch allowed.
