Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for 38 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bills.
After totaling just 20 snaps on offense in his first three games, Valdes-Scantling started Sunday in place of an injured Randall Cobb (hamstring) and was on the field for a healthy 54 plays. He drew just three passes in his direction, but he was able to haul in a long one from quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Looking toward Week 5, Valdes-Scantling will have an opportunity to see an elevated snap count again, as the availability of both Cobb and Geronimo Allison (concussion) will be in question until later in the week.
Valdes-Scantling will get the starting nod in place of Randall Cobb (hamstring) Sunday against the Bills, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
While Geronimo Allison would seemingly be the logical choice for an increased role in the absence of Cobb, Allison already sees a significant amount of the snap share, so it's potentially Valdes-Scantling who has the most to gain. While Valdes-Scantling has just one reception on the season, and less than 20 offensive snaps overall, that should change in a big way for the Week 4 matchup. He has the speed (4.37 40-yard dash) to take the top off the defense, and there's almost always room for a third, fantasy-relevant wideout option in an Aaron Rodgers-led offense. Game flow could always limit his upside, but this is the first opportunity of the year for the rookie to make his presence known.
Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for three yards in Sunday's tie with the Vikings.
Valdes-Scantling played just six snaps Sunday, but that was four more than he was on the field for in Week 1, and it was still enough to allow him to notch the first reception of his professional career. He seems pretty locked into the No. 4 spot at his position on the Packers' depth chart as of now, but with three talented and productive receivers ahead of him, his contributions will remain minimal as long as the top trio remains healthy.
Valdes-Scantling played two snaps on offense in Sunday's victory over the Bears and was not targeted. He also returned a kick for 21 yards in the contest.
The two snaps Valdes-Scantling received Sunday were the fourth most among all Packers receivers, but the minuscule number illustrates just how far away he is from contributing to fantasy squads.
Valdes-Scantling caught three passes for 41 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Chiefs.
Valdes-Scantling totaled just four receptions for 56 yards in three games after topping the century mark in the Packers' exhibition opener, but he still led the Packers in receiving Thursday, and was generally the most impressive of the team's three rookie receivers during training camp. As such, there's a good chance he breaks camp with the Packers, but even if he does, he would play a minor role at best in Week 1.
