Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Mixed performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling caught two of three targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-16 win over the Bears. He also rushed once for four yards.

Valdes-Scantling broke the game open with a 72-yard touchdown catch on a third down midway through the second quarter. Following halftime, the speedster again got wide open deep downfield, but Valdes-Scantling dropped what would've been a 53-yard touchdown, shifting momentum back for a stretch during the second half. Despite his inconsistency throughout the campaign, Valdes-Scantling has been a dynamic vertical threat, leading the league with nearly 21 yards per reception while scoring six times. He'll now aim to minimize his mistakes as Green Bay embarks upon the playoffs.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Fourth goose egg in five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was not targeted in Sunday's victory over the Titans.

Valdes-Scantling played just as many snaps (41) as Allen Lazard and just six fewer than Davante Adams, but he was limited to decoy duty in Week 16 as the downfield passing game was impacted by snowy conditions. Valdes-Scantling has had his moments this season, and he racked up 85 yards and a score as recently as Week 14. However, he also finished without a reception in four of the Packers' last five contests, including the team's Week 12 victory over the Bears. Valdes-Scantling and the Packers will face that same Chicago team in their regular-season finale next weekend.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Shut out in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was targeted once but did not record a touch in Saturday's victory over the Panthers.

Both Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard started alongside Davante Adams on Saturday night, and while Lazard had his most yards in a game since Week 3, Valdes-Scantling was held without a catch for the third time in four games. Lazard also played more snaps than Valdes-Scantling for the first time since that same Week 3 contest. The Packers will face a below-average Titans pass defense in Week 16, but with three goose eggs in his last four games and his snap count in decline, Valdes-Scantling will have minimal appeal to those competing in or trying to reach the championship game in their leagues.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Bounces back with strong Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling secured all six of his targets for 85 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-24 win against the Lions.

After being held without a catch for a second consecutive outing last Sunday afternoon against the Eagles, Valdes-Scantling provided his third-greatest receiving total of the 2020 campaign during a road trip to Detroit. Also of note, Valdes-Scantling doubled the target share of Allen Lazard during Week 14, a change of events after Lazard out-targeted the South Florida product 14-8 over the Packers' preceding three games. Given an array of huge fantasy weeks contrasted by three zero-catch performances this season, Valdes-Scantling represents a high-risk, high-reward proposition as the Packers prepare to host the Panthers in Week 15.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Held catchless in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling did not haul in either of his two targets in Sunday's victory over the Eagles and finished the contest with one carry for negative-4 yards.

Valdes-Scantling would have had a better day had he hauled in a long pass downfield, but he was ultimately held without a reception for the second week in a row. Valdes-Scantling was on the field for 75 percent of the plays the Packers ran Sunday, but that number declined for the third week in a row as Allen Lazard gets more involved in the offense. Valdes-Scantling will have some big-play potential in Week 14 against a porous Lions secondary, but with his snap count and production both trending in the wrong direction, he's going to be tough to trust in playoff lineups.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Not targeted in Week 12 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling did not record a target in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Valdes-Scantling was on the field for a shade under 80 percent of the plays the Packers ran in Week 12, but he was limited primarily to blocking and decoy duties and was held without a catch for the second time this season. His production has declined since Allen Lazard returned to action in Week 11, and with the Packers' offense just about at full speed, Valdes-Scantling figures to continue playing a complementary role.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Suiting up Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bears.

Valdes-Scantling appeared on the injury report as a limited participant Thursday and didn't practice at all Friday, the result of an Achilles concern. Despite the lack of reps to end the week, he'll be available to the Packers offense, but his workload remains to be seen. Davante Adams and Allen Lazard should serve as the team's top two wide receivers, with Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), Darrius Shepherd and Malik Taylor on hand for any reps that linger.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Questionable after missed practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) was held out of Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.

He was a midweek addition to the injury report, listed as limited in Thursday's practice. If Valdes-Scantling were to miss Sunday's game, Allen Lazard likely would take over as the No. 2 receiver, with Darrius Shepherd, Equanimeous St. Brown (knee) and Malik Taylor providing depth. The Packers don't play until Sunday night, so it could be a tricky situation for those planning to start MVS in fantasy lineups.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Picks up Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling was limited in practice Thursday due to an Achilles injury, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Making a sudden appearance on the Packers' injury report midweek isn't a great sign for Valdes-Scantling's status, especially considering the nature of the injury. Still, he was one of three Packers receivers -- also, Allen Lazard (core) and Equanimeous St. Brown (knee) -- to be limited Thursday, while Davante Adams (ankle) didn't practice at all. Friday's injury could be telling for the breakdown of Green Bay's receiving corps for Sunday's contest versus the Bears.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Key fumble in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling recorded three receptions on six targets for 55 yards in Week 11 against the Colts.

Valdes-Scantling continued in a deep-threat role, as the majority of his production came on a 47-yard reception late in the fourth quarter to set up a game-tying field goal. However, he also had the game-deciding error, fumbling after a short gain in overtime to put the Colts in field-goal position. Overall, Valdes-Scantling held onto his role as Aaron Rodgers' second receiver, though that could change in Week 12 against the Bears as Allen Lazard will be another game removed from his core injury.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Twists and turns for 78-yard TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling corralled four of six targets for 149 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-20 win against the Jaguars.

Valdes-Scantling hauled in a deep Aaron Rodgers pass down the right sideline, swinging all the way across the field to out-maneuver three Jaguar defenders after the catch, even deploying one referee as a convoy en route to a breakthrough score for the Packers at the 14:47 mark of the second quarter. By virtue of the game-breaking play, Valdes-Scantling concluded the contest with more than double the receiving production of Davante Adams. Valdes-Scantling has now compiled three touchdowns over his past two outings heading into a Week 11 matchup against Indianapolis.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Maximizes both catches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling secured two of four targets for 53 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 34-17 win over the 49ers on Thursday night.

Valdes-Scantling was once again in the highly familiar role of playing clear second fiddle to Davante Adams, but he still managed to reward fantasy managers with a productive showing courtesy of his touchdown grabs of 52 and one yard in the second and third quarter, respectively. The pair of scores were MVS's first visits to the end zone since Week 1, however, and with Allen Lazard (abdomen) projected to return for a Week 10 matchup against the Jaguars in 10 days, the former's fantasy glory may well be short-lived.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Quiet again in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for 19 yards and had one carry for four yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Valdes-Scantling got a chance to run the ball for the second straight week, but he again was quiet in the passing game despite being on the field for all but 13 of the 75 plays run by the Packers offense. Valdes-Scantling has ran as the team's No. 2 receiver since Allen Lazard (abdomen) landed on injured reserve, but he hasn't run with the opportunity, totaling just 96 receiving yards and 13 rushing yards in the four games Lazard has missed. Valdes-Scantling could hold onto that spot for another game with the Packers on a short week, but with him producing minimally and likely to lose snaps when Lazard returns in the near future, there isn't much reason to be optimistic about his fantasy prospects moving forward.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: No receptions in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Bottled up by Buccaneers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Makes four grabs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Fails to capitalize on opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Marquez Valdes-Scantling: Three catches as Adams hurts hammy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdes-Scantling secured four of six targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers list 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.
