Valdes-Scantling had a productive rookie year, including two 100-yard games. He had six games with three or more receptions, finishing with 38 catches for 581 yards and two touch-downs. He has a chance to be a big factor from day one this year. competing for the starting job opposite Davante Adams. Valdes-Scantling has great size for the position and uses it well to make big plays down the field. He can get pushed around some and can struggle against press coverage. He has top speed, though, and can get by defenders in a hurry.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Valdes-Scantling has some potential in a pass-first offense, especially if he grabs a starting job. He is worth a late-round look for fantasy teams. If all goes well, he could get 60 or 65 receptions for 900 yards and six or so touchdowns.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling appeared on NFL's Good Morning Football show and commented on what it was like to play with Aaron Rodgers. Valdes-Scantling said that Rodgers looks for players to play well, and be consistent. While that isn't surprising the buzz around Valdes-Scantling is being given the opportunity to vastly improve on his 38 receptions, 581 yards and two touchdown season. Valdes-Scantling is currently being drafted in the later rounds, and as such if Rodgers is able to rebound from his poor season last year the receiver will give fantasy owners tremendous value.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been impressing the coaching staff, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers this offseason. According to reports he has picked up the new system being installed by head coach Matt LaFleur. The Packers have their lead receiver in Davante Adams, however, the team needs to find their number two option at the position. Geronimo Allison was impressive in parts last season but Valdes-Scantling was equally impressive. Valdes-Scantling finished the season with 38 receptions for 581 yards and two touchdowns, with the majority of that production coming in just four games. It bodes well for Valdes-Scantling production this season that he has impressed Rodgers this season, but it remains to be seen if he will be more consistent this season for fantasy owners.
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling created at least one step of separation on 70.3 percent of his targets (excluding screens), ranking third among the 72 receivers with at least 50 targets in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
Green Bay Packers WRs Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, Jake Kumerow, J'Mon Moore and Trevor Davis could all make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Packers Wire's Zach Kruse, with Adams, Allison, Valdes-Scantling and St. Brown viewed as locks.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been lining up as the No. 2 behind Davante Adams and ahead of Geronimo Allison during offseason practices. Minicamp practices revealed that MVS is a starter and probably the No. 2 behind Adams, with Allison likely to serve as the slot man in three-wide sets. I think this offense is really catered for a guy like him, Adams said of Valdes-Scantling. The fifth-round pick had some standout games as a rookie but was altogether very inconsistent for fantasy owners. Valdes-Scantling finished with 38 catches for 581 yards and had a team-high 15.3 yard-per-catch average. It's looking like he's a perfect fit for new head coach Matt LaFleur's offense, and he'll be coveted by fantasy owners in the later rounds as a potential breakout candidate.
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been lining up across from WR Davante Adams in all packages during minicamp.
Fantasy Spin: It sounds like Valdes-Scantling has the inside track to the No. 2 receiver job. It remains to be seen if he will take the role and run with it, but the upside that comes with being one of Aaron Rodgers' top targets makes him a WR4 candidate.
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling feels confident he'll flourish in the team's new offense. 'It's built for my kind of player. I'm a vertical guy, I can stretch the field,' Valdes-Scantling said.
Fantasy Spin: Davante Adams is the go-to receiver, but there is plenty of opportunity for Valdes-Scantling to shine with Randall Cobb having moved on. His biggest challenger for targets will be Geronimo Allison, Equanimeous St. Brown and Trevor Davis. Whomever starts opposite Adams will be worth of WR4 or flex fantasy status.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling is faster than the new coaching staff thought he'd be and has quickly picked up head coach Matt LaFleur's system this offseason. At 6-foot-4, 206 pounds, the 24-year-old should at least be the No. 3 wideout behind Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison to begin the year. MVS was the most impressive of the team's three rookie wideouts last season and has earned the right to start in three-receiver sets in 2019 after he caught 38 passes for 581 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie campaign. Valdes-Scantling should be on a lot more fantasy rosters to begin the 2019 season.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling "has had a fantastic spring and really stepped up as a guy who can be an every-down player." Behind top wideout Davante Adams, the Packers need the second-year wideout to improve alongside tight end Jimmy Graham. Going into his second year, MVS should be more consistent for his fantasy owners after grabbing 38 receptions for 581 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season in 2018. If opposing defenses decide to double up on Adams on the outside, Valdes-Scantling could have some big weeks in store.
