Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 15. He didn’t practice all week and is clearly a long shot play vs. the Bucs on Sunday. WR Dontayvion Wicks (ankle) is listed as questionable after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. If he’s unable to play this weekend, Green Bay would be down to WRs Malik Heath and Samori Toure behind top two WRs Jayden Reed and Romeo Doubs.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. Fantasy owners should not be counting on him to play vs. the Bucs this weekend. WR Dontayvion Wicks (ankle) was also out on Wednesday.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Giants. He didn't practice all week and is likely looking at a multi-game absence. WRs Jayden Reed and Romeo Doubs should get playing-time boosts with Watson out. Dontayvion Wicks figures to serve as Green Bay's No. 3 WR but is really only in play on the Monday DFS slate.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday. He told reporters that this hamstring injury isn't as bad as the one that cost him the first three games of the season. But he's still unlikely to play vs. the Giants on Monday night. That'll leave Jayden Reed, Romeo Doubs, and Dontayvion Wicks as Green Bay's top three WRs.

Packers WR Christian Watson injured his right hamstring late in Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. That ended a strong outing for Watson, who finished with seven catches for 71 yards and two TDs, plus 15 rushing yards. We'll see about the severity of this hamstring injury and when we can expect Watson back.

Packers WR Jayden Reed (chest) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Chiefs. He got in just a limited practice on Friday and was listed as questionable. But Reed played through this chest injury on Thanksgiving, racking up 50 total yards and a score. The bigger concern for Reed might be that WR Dontayvion Wicks (knee) is also active. He’s played between 33% and 44% of Green Bay’s offensive snaps in his last four games and could eat into Reed’s playing time a bit, as well as WR Christian Watson and WR Romeo Doubs’ playing time.

Packers WR Christian Watson tallied 5 catches, 94 yards, and 1 score in a Week 12 win over Detroit. Watson hauled in a 54-yard deep ball on the game's first play, and it was smooth sailing from there alongside a red-hot Jordan Love. Overall, Watson’s 7 targets (21.8% share) ranked second on the team and marking his second-highest total of the season. Next week turns up a tough matchup vs. Kansas City, but beyond that, Green Bay’s schedule lightens up.

Packers WR Dontayvion Wicks (concussion, knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Lions. Green Bay’s No. 4 WR has totaled 17 targets (11.6% share) over the last four games. His absence is a slight boost for WRs Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and Jayden Reed.

Packers WR Dontayvion Wicks is in the concussion protocol. He's also dealing with a knee injury and was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated practice report. The concussion makes Wicks a long shot to be cleared for Thursday's game vs. the Lions. The rookie has played about one-third of Green Bay's offensive snaps over the past four weeks, totaling 17 targets (11.6% share). His absence is a slight boost for WRs Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and Jayden Reed.

Packers WR Jayden Reed delivered a big fantasy line in an unconventional way Sunday against the Chargers. He scored from 32 yards out on a carry, one of three he logged before the middle of the second quarter. Reed totaled 46 rushing yards to lead the team in a game that saw RB Aaron Jones leave early with a knee injury. All three of Reed's rushes came before Jones left the game, which could bode well for that aspect staying in his game. He had just two rushes for the season entering Sunday's game. The rookie also tied for the team lead with 6 targets and notched 4 receptions for another 46 yards. This isn't the kind of stat line we can count on Reed repeating, but his usage was encouraging. Reed's 34 routes (among 44 dropbacks) finished basically tied with Christian Watson (36) and Romeo Doubs (33). Watson got 4 targets, tallying 2 receptions for 21 yards and a TD. Doubs posted a 5-53-1 line on 6 targets. It was an optimal matchup for the Green Bay passing offense, especially after losing its lead back. Don't expect as much Green Bay passing success the rest of the way. A Week 12 matchup at Detroit, however, could once again boost passing upside.

Packers WR Christian Watson flopped again in Week 10, hauling in just 2 of his 7 targets for 23 receiving yards vs. the Steelers. It’s fair to question at this point whether or not fantasy managers should continue to consider putting Watson into lineups. He’s now averaged a poor 2.3 receptions and 40 receiving yards per game in 2023, and the rapport between him and QB Jordan Love hasn’t come through. In fact, 5 of the 10 INTs that Love has thrown this season have come when targeting Watson, per The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman. How much blame to assign the WR vs. the QB barely matters. Expect to find Watson well outside the top 36 in our weekly WR rankings until something changes. It's even OK to consider dropping him in shallower leagues.

Packers WR Christian Watson (back) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. He’ll be ready for his usual role in that one but is tough to like as more than a WR4 in a struggling Green Bay passing game.

Packers WR Christian Watson (back) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to play vs. the Steelers this weekend. Watson is tough to trust as more than a WR4 in a struggling Packers passing game. He's totaled just seven catches for 97 yards over the last three weeks.

Packers WR Christian Watson was not diagnosed with a concussion after exiting in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Rams, HC Matt LaFleur said Monday. "We're still following it closely just to make sure," LaFleur added. He also said that the chest and back injuries that were reported on Sunday are not a concern. It sounds like Watson should be available for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers, but we'll keep tabs on him throughout the week.

Packers WR Christian Watson managed only 1 catch for 37 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. That was a sweet leaping grab deep downfield. Watson nearly added a downfield TD, but the pass arrived underthrown. The young WR exited this one banged up with chest and back injuries. He was also checked for a concussion, but HC Matt LaFleur said the team is confident he avoided a head injury. We'll check his practice participation ahead of Sunday's meeting with a beatable Pittsburgh secondary. After that comes another favorable opponent in the Chargers.
