Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 12
Valdes-Scantling is seemingly earning the trust of QB Aaron Rodgers. A week after seeing 10 targets, he garnered 9 more. He caught 4 of those targets for 50 yards.

This game was trending towards a Randall Cobb game, after catching 4 passes for 95 yards and a TD. But a groin injury put an end to that, with Cobb missing the entire 2nd half

Going forward, Valdes-Scantling has a tremendous opportunity. He has really seen more opportunities after being a bit piece after returning from injury. If he can stay healthy and the volume continues to flow his way, Valdes-Scantling has blowup potential each and every week. This kind of volume also elevates his weekly floor. He is the perfect boom or bust option to flex in the fantasy playoffs.
Week 11
While Davante Adams had an impressive performance on Sunday, it was Valdes-Scantling who led the Packers with 10 targets. He caught just 4 of those but produced 123 yards and a TD. MVS is a WR who is targeted down the field which leads to some inefficiency from a catch rate perspective. That being said, when you average over 30 yards per reception it can lead to big games.

Valdes-Scantling is a great complement to Adams. He won’t produce every week but clearly has the chance to boom. He hadn’t seen double-digit targets since 2019 but had 8 in a game earlier this season.

Going forward, he can provide a boom or bust option with real upside when you need a ceiling play. Pay attention to matchups against opponents with gettable secondaries and offenses that can push Green Bay.
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 is out for the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Lions with a back injury. Green Bay also pulled QB Aaron Rodgers, WR Davante Adams and WR Allen Lazard at halftime, so it's unclear how serious Valdes-Scantling's injury is. He'll get a 1st-round bye to heal up before the Divisional Round.
