Devin Duvernay, WR JAC

8:43pm EST 12/20/22

Devin Duvernay to IR

Ravens WR Devin Duvernay has been placed on IR with a foot injury he suffered in Tuesday's practice. It's unclear if he has a shot to return when first eligible for the Divisional Round of the playoffs, but his regular season is over. Baltimore added WR Sammy Watkins in a corresponding move. Watkins spent last season with the Ravens but mustered just a 27-394-1 line across 13 games. He looked equally washed with the Packers this season. Watkins joins Demarcus Robinson, DeSean Jackson and James Proche in the WR corps.

Packers WR Sammy Watkins (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It looks like he'll be available for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys, but Watkins would be a desperation fantasy play.

Packers WR Sammy Watkins (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. WR Christian Watson (concussion) was a full participant, so he'll be available for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. Green Bay will be without WR Romeo Doubs (ankle) for that one. WR Allen Lazard is the only bankable fantasy play in this struggling passing game.
