Christian Watson limited, scores in 2023 debut

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.
