Packers WR Christian Watson left late in Sunday's game vs. the Rams with chest and back injuries. He was also evaluated for a concussion, the team announced. We'll look for an update on Watson's status.

Packers WR Christian Watson caught just three of 8 targets in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. He produced a mere 33 yards, ranking third on the team. Watson has now caught just 11 of 24 targets through four appearances, an ugly 45.8% catch rate. The good news is that he didn't miss time after hurting a knee late in Week 7. The bad news: QB Jordan Love appears likely to limit Watson's upside going forward. Next week holds a negative scoring matchup with the Rams, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. After that, though, come three straight positive matchups for WR scoring.

Packers WR Christian Watson (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. The knee injury Watson suffered last week doesn’t look like a concern. QB Jordan Love’s play is.

Packers WR Christian Watson (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He was knocked out late in last week's loss to the Broncos with a knee injury but will evidently be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings.

Packers WR Christian Watson didn't sound overly concerned about the right knee injury he suffered near the end of Sunday's loss to the Broncos. “Everything looked good on the scans and whatnot,” Watson said on Monday. “Obviously, I’m just trying to get the initial pain and stuff out of there and I think I’ll be good to go.” It sounds like Watson has a chance to play vs. the Vikings this weekend. We'll track his status throughout the week.

Packers WR Christian Watson hurt his right knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He made it off the field under his own power but collapsed on the sidelines in obvious pain. We'll update his status when we know more.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave hauled 6 of 7 targets for 34 yards in Week 5 vs. the Raiders. Excluding last week’s contest vs. the Lions in which he suffered a concussion, the rookie has now posted at least 8 PPR points in three of his four healthy games. Fantasy managers looking for TE help ought to take notice here. WR Christian Watson recorded a team-high 91 receiving yards on Monday night but was only able to connect 3 catches on 7 targets in the contest. For as bad of an offensive performance as the Packers put on display, there’s some good here to hang your hat on. Next up on the schedule is a road game against the Broncos.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) was limited in practice all week but isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll play vs. the Raiders on Monday night and should be ready for a bigger workload than he got in his 2023 debut last week, when he played just 46% of Green Bay's offensive snaps.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur confirmed that RB Aaron Jones and WR Christian Watson were on snap counts in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. Jones played 35% of the snaps and Watson 46% in their first games back from hamstring injuries. LaFleur added that he's "hopeful" that both guys can have full workloads vs. the Raiders in Week 5. We'll track their participation levels in practice next week.

Returning from his early-September hamstring injury, Packers WR Christian Watson played just 26 of 57 offensive snaps (45.6%) in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. He ran a pass route on 20 of 41 dropbacks (48.8%) -- fourth among Green Bay WRs, behind Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, and Dontayvion Wicks. Fantasy owners who started Watson got a bit fortunate when he was left wide open for a one-yard TD in the third quarter. Watson's only other catch of the night came earlier on that drive: a 24-yarder on a deep crosser. The best news to come out of this one is that Watson seemingly avoided a setback with that hamstring. He now has a few extra days to get ready for a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Raiders. Watson will be a risk/reward WR3 in that one until we see him back to a full allotment of snaps. The Packers have a bye in Week 6.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Lions. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported this morning that Green Bay will be cautious with Watson in his 2023 debut. But we’re expecting to see him out there in most passing situations. See where Watson sits in the Week 4 WR Rankings.

Packers WR Christian Watson is expected to play for the first time this season tonight against the Lions. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Green Bay will "be careful" with Watson's workload, however. We'll watch for any further specifics ahead of kickoff, but we'll all likely be guessing at just how big a role Watson plays in his return from a multi-week hamstring injury. He sits in WR4 range of our Week 4 WR rankings. Watson presents upside from there, even if the Packers limit his snaps and targets. He looks fairly risky vs. the top 36, though. There's certainly room to decide how willing you are to take on Watson's risk vs. his big-play reward potential.

The Packers list WR Christian Watson (hamstring) as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Lions. He remained limited in this abbreviated practice week. But Watson said Tuesday that he expects to be ready to play, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. We'll check his status ahead of kickoff. There will obviously be risk to playing Watson in your fantasy lineup in his first game back. But he brings upside every time he's on the field as well. Check our Week 4 WR rankings before setting your lineup.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) was limited in Tuesday's walkthrough. "That's the plan," he said afterward when asked whether he'll play vs. the Lions on Thursday night. We'll see how Watson is listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Saints. He got in two limited practices this week, but the team continues to play it safe with Watson. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 4. Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed will again serve as Green Bay’s top two WRs today.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Saints. He got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out on Thursday, which HC Matt LaFleur said was the plan for the week. We’ll look for further updates on Watson’s status and will get Green Bay’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. Watson will be a risk/reward WR3 in fantasy lineups if he suits up.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday, after being limited on Wednesday. HC Matt LaFleur said it was a planned day off, but it certainly casts some doubt on whether Watson will play vs. the Saints this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He returned to a limited practice for the first time since going down last Friday before missing the Falcons game. We're tentatively expecting Watson to play vs. the Saints this weekend but will keep tabs on his progress over the next few days.

Packers rookie WR Jayden Reed saw a team-leading 8 targets in Week 2, hauling in 4 catches for 37 yards and a pair of TDs vs. the Falcons. Last week’s star, Romeo Doubs, only corralled 2 of his 3 targets for 30 yards in this contest. It’s tough to take a lot away from these first couple of games since WR Christian Watson has yet to make his season debut due to a hamstring injury. Even so, it appears as though the Packers’ passing game is fairly potent with QB Jordan Love under center. There’s reason to be excited about this group in Week 3 vs. the Saints. Watch out for practice reports in the coming days to see if Love will have his full arsenal of weapons available to him.
