Week 2
Despite not catching a single ball in this game on his 4 targets, it sure seems like Valdes-Scantling is a part of the Packers' game plan. 2 of the 4 targets were almost assuredly TDs, until they weren't. Both were thrown about a yard too far by Aaron Rodgers.

Through 2 weeks, MVS is 4th in air yards across the entire NFL. He is just behind Brandin Cooks, Marvin Jones and Tyler Lockett. Better times are almost certainly ahead. The three names ahead of him currently rank as WR10, WR15 and WR2 in half-PPR.

While he will be the ultimate boom/bust option who is assuredly “better in best ball," regression to the mean is around the corner. He is the perfect option when you need that massive hit in your lineup on a week to week basis. Don’t give up on MVS just yet.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • MVS tied for 2nd among Packers in targets last year (with Aaron Jones) at 63. That made up just 12% of the team’s pass attempts, though.
  • Allen Lazard -- who lost 6 games to injury -- edged Valdes-Scantling in targets per game, 4.6 to 3.9.
  • MVS ranked 3rd in the league last season in average depth of target at 18.23 yards. The only 2 players ahead of him were Eagles WR John Hightower and Chargers WR Tyron Johnson, who each fell short of 30 targets for the year.
  • Valdes-Scantling led all qualifiers in yards per catch at 20.9, the league’s highest mark since DeSean Jackson hit 20.9 YPC in 2014.
  • MVS posted his 3rd straight lackluster Pro Football Focus receiving grade. But for the 1st time in his 3 seasons, his top marks came late in the year. Valdes-Scantling earned 3 of his 4 best game grades over the final 6 contests and positive marks in each of the 2 playoff outings.
  • Valdes-Scantling’s drop rate more than doubled, from 6.9% in 2019 to 14.6% last year. But he dropped just 1 pass over his final 6 games -- according to PFF -- and only 2 passes over his final 10.
  • New competition for 2020 includes 3rd-round rookie Amari Rodgers and veteran Devin Funchess, who opted out last season after signing a 1-year deal.
    • At 5’9, 212 pounds, Rodgers looks like a slot guy -- especially after playing 82% of his snaps there in his final college season.
    • Funchess profiles similar to MVS in role, having spent just 19.9% of his career pass snaps in the slot and sporting a 13.8 career ADOT.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

At his best, MVS is a volatile producer -- even by the volatile standards of the position. He’s not likely to reach 100 targets, and has caught just 50.5% of his career looks despite playing with Aaron Rodgers for 3 seasons. We don’t know yet whether he’ll have Rodgers or Jordan Love in 2021, so we’re not too interested in Valdes-Scantling for fantasy purposes as of this writing.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) is expected to land on IR, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. MVS has already been ruled out for Week 4 and will also miss Weeks 5 and 6. He's droppable in most fantasy leagues. We'll see exactly how snaps are divvied behind WR Davante Adams in Sunday's game vs. the Steelers.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. Allen Lazard should step into the #2 WR role, with Randall Cobb also picking up some extra snaps in the slot.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. It's looking like he'll miss this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. Look for Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb to operate as Green Bay's #2 and #3 WRs in that one, but they're really only in play in DFS.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He's in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. His absence would likely mean a bigger role for WR Allen Lazard.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling injured his hamstring in the 4th quarter of Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers. He's officially questionable to return, but we'd be surprised to see him back out there after he pulled up gimpy at the end of a deep route.
