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 (Achilles) is active for tonight’s game against the Bears. He’s a boom-or-bust fantasy play, especially at less than 100%.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Bears. He injured his Achilles on Thursday and then didn’t practice on Friday — so he seems to be on the doubtful side of questionable. Valdes-Scantling’s absence would make WR Allen Lazard a more intriguing Week 12 fantasy play.

Packers WRs Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee, ankle) are active for today’s game against the Raiders. It’s a plus matchup, but both guys figure to be operating at less than 100%. Their availability is obviously good news for QB Aaron Rodgers, though.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee, ankle) is "hopeful" to play against the Raiders today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. MVS was able to play through these injuries last week but only got in a limited practice on Friday. He won't be at 100% if he suits up, leaving him as a risky WR3.

Update: MVS returned to the field for the start of the 2nd half.
