What You Need to Know:

  • Watson is a towering presence at 6’4, 208 pounds.
  • He brings sprinter speed, too: The 22-year-old went on to clock a 4.36 forty at the Combine. He added strong times in the vertical (38.5 inches) and broad jump (11’4”).
  • A 2-star high school prospect, Watson landed in a run-heavy North Dakota offense and stayed for 4 seasons. He never posted huge numbers, maxing out with 732 yards (2019) and 800 yards (2021).
  • FBS defensive backs were no match for him, though. His tape turned up a physically superior talent with impressive build-up speed. Unsurprisingly, he posted some huge YPC totals.
  • He was far from perfect, however, posting a big 12.8% drop rate over the past 3 seasons. And a film study from our own Jared Smola turned up underwhelming route running and contested catch ability. There’s no doubt he’ll encounter a major adjustment in the pros.
  • Green Bay still took a shot on his raw tools, trading up to select him 34th overall.
  • The Packers moved on from Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling over the offseason. They leave ~240 vacated targets behind.
  • Green Bay also added rookie Romeo Doubs in Round 4. He joins an underwhelming WR corps that also includes veteran newcomer Sammy Watkins, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers.
  • Aaron Rodgers at least remains a top-tier passer. Last year, he ranked 3rd in PFF passing grade; 1st in QBR. We don’t see a significant decline risk, even at 39 (in December).

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Here’s what new Packers OC Adam Stenavich said about Watson at rookie minicamp:

“His combination of size and speed is great,” Stenavich said. “He's a big guy, he can move, he's going to be a problem once he figures things out.”

Note the last part of that quote. There’s no doubt Watson brings long-term intrigue, but his 2022 value figures to be inconsistent given his raw game. Ultimately, he’s not one of our preferred late-round targets.

Christian Watson, WR GB

Watson all set for Week 18

Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) logged limited practice all week and doesn't carry an official injury designation ahead of Week 18 vs. the Lions. Battling through a hip injury, Watson managed just 1 catch on 5 targets and a 60% route rate last week. He has an awesome matchup on Sunday night vs. Detroit's 26th-ranked WR defense. It's a little tough to trust him in lineups considering the mixed bag of practice results this week. Consider the rookie a low-end WR2.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) only managed to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday. The rookie managed to suit up last week despite this ailment, but we'll keep an eye on his status just in case. Check back for updates on Watson ahead of Week 18 vs. the Lions.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. He got in just a limited practice on Friday and was reportedly a game-time decision, so it’s safe to assume that the rookie won’t be at 100%. Consider him a risk/reward WR3.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) "will test his injury pre-game to see if he can play vs. the Vikings," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Watson only got in a limited practice on Friday this week and "didn’t take any live repetitions," according to Schefter. Watson will obviously carry elevated risk if he ends up giving it a go. We'll get Green Bay's inactives around 3 pm ET on Sunday.

Dynasty Write-up
Watson landed in an awesome spot for immediate fantasy opportunity. Sure enough, he turned into a TD machine alongside QB Aaron Rodgers. Long term, we question whether Watson is a true WR1. In the FCS, his tape showed a raw route runner with shaky hands. For 2023 and beyond, his situation isn’t as friendly considering Rodgers is 39 and QB Jordan Love is a question mark.
