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.
Returning from his early-September hamstring injury, Packers WR Christian Watson played just 26 of 57 offensive snaps (45.6%) in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. He ran a pass route on 20 of 41 dropbacks (48.8%) -- fourth among Green Bay WRs, behind Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, and Dontayvion Wicks. Fantasy owners who started Watson got a bit fortunate when he was left wide open for a one-yard TD in the third quarter. Watson's only other catch of the night came earlier on that drive: a 24-yarder on a deep crosser. The best news to come out of this one is that Watson seemingly avoided a setback with that hamstring. He now has a few extra days to get ready for a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Raiders. Watson will be a risk/reward WR3 in that one until we see him back to a full allotment of snaps. The Packers have a bye in Week 6.
Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Lions. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported this morning that Green Bay will be cautious with Watson in his 2023 debut. But we’re expecting to see him out there in most passing situations. See where Watson sits in the Week 4 WR Rankings.
Packers WR Christian Watson is expected to play for the first time this season tonight against the Lions. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Green Bay will "be careful" with Watson's workload, however. We'll watch for any further specifics ahead of kickoff, but we'll all likely be guessing at just how big a role Watson plays in his return from a multi-week hamstring injury. He sits in WR4 range of our Week 4 WR rankings. Watson presents upside from there, even if the Packers limit his snaps and targets. He looks fairly risky vs. the top 36, though. There's certainly room to decide how willing you are to take on Watson's risk vs. his big-play reward potential.
The Packers list WR Christian Watson (hamstring) as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Lions. He remained limited in this abbreviated practice week. But Watson said Tuesday that he expects to be ready to play, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. We'll check his status ahead of kickoff. There will obviously be risk to playing Watson in your fantasy lineup in his first game back. But he brings upside every time he's on the field as well. Check our Week 4 WR rankings before setting your lineup.
Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) was limited in Tuesday's walkthrough. "That's the plan," he said afterward when asked whether he'll play vs. the Lions on Thursday night. We'll see how Watson is listed on the final injury report tomorrow.
