Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling ended up with three catches and 64 yards on seven targets in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions.
Fantasy Spin: Valdes-Scantling led all Green Bay wide receivers on yardage and targets. He remains nothing more than a low-end WR4 or flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 3 in New Orleans.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three passes for 64 yards in the Packers 42-21 win over the Lions. With star receiver Davante Adams exiting early with a hamstring injury, Valdes-Scantling made some plays and saw seven targets in the game. With the extent of Adams injury currently unknown, Valdes-Scantling could be the main target for quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Week 3 against the Saints.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling will have an excellent matchup in Week 2 against the Lions. Valdes-Scantling stepped up last week against the Vikings, catching four passes for 96 yards and one touchdown. Now he will go up against an injury-plagued secondary with the Lions and has an opportunity to post a solid fantasy line once more. The Lions allowed 18 touchdowns to receivers last season and were completely gashed by the Bears in the fourth quarter of Week 1. Valdes-Scantling has been a hot waiver wire commodity this week and will carry WR3/4 value heading into Week 2.
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught four of his six targets for 96 yards, hauling in a 45-yard touchdown, in a 43-34 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: We have seen Valdes-Scantling flash big play ability, but we have also seen him disappear for long stretches. The Packers still need a No. 2 target behind Davante Adams, making Valdes-Scantling a high-risk, high-reward flex candidate heading into Week 2.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught four passes for 96 yards and one touchdown in the Packers 43-34 win over the Vikings in Week 1. The biggest question heading into the Packers season was who would step up as the number two receiver and Valdes-Scantling aced the first test. He caught a beautiful pass for a 45-yard touchdown as the Packers looked explosive on offense. Valdes-Scantling will be popping up on the fantasy waiver wire radar heading into Week 2.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he's been most impressed with wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling in training camp. "Now he's making the catches he's expected to make, and he's adding some extra plays in there where he's doing some smart things and showing the growth, so I'm really proud of MVS," Rodgers said. A former fifth-rounder in 2018, MVS has 64 catches for 1,033 yards and four touchdowns in two seasons in Green Bay. There was plenty of opportunity last year, but the 25-year-old was inconsistent while dealing with injuries. But it looks like he's improved and gained chemistry with Rodgers, so he could be a nice late-round sleeper out of the slot in his third season.
Green Packers Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has put together two straight strong practices, head coach Matt LaFleur said Saturday, Aug. 22.
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling finished fourth in the league in 2019 with an average depth of target of 16.9 yards, according to Pro Football Reference's advanced receiving data.
Fantasy Spin: That's about all MVS excelled at as he only caught 26 of 56 targets for 452 yards and two TDs -- down from his rookie-year stats (38-581-2) the season prior. Devin Funchess has been added to the Pack's WR corps for 2020, so if you really want MVS this summer, he should be available on your early-season free-agent wire.
