ESPN's Rob Demovsky says minicamp revealed that 2nd-year Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling "is a starter" and "probably is the No. 2 receiver behind [Davante Adams]." MVS has reportedly been in constantly for 2- and 3-WR sets, with Geronimo Allison looking likely to play the slot in 3-wide sets. Adams said, "I think this offense is really catered for a guy like [MVS]." Valdes-Scantling already delivered 6 weeks of top-36 PPR production as a rookie. He could carry upside into WR2 range in 2019.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers likes what he's seen from WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling this offseason. “I think Marquez has had a fantastic spring and really stepped up as a guy who can be an every-down player," Rodgers said. It's particularly noteworthy after a story from Bleacher Report earlier this offseason mentioned that Rodgers didn't trust MVS last year. Even so, Valdes-Scantling flashed with 15.3 yards per catch as a rookie. He's reportedly been running with the 1st-team offense this offseason and is in the mix to finish 2nd on the 2019 Packers in targets.
