Dontayvion Wicks Headshot

Packers rookie WR Dontayvion Wicks started Sunday against the Buccaneers in place of Christian Watson and wound up leading the team in receiving. He tied WR Jayden Reed for the team lead at 6 receptions while tallying a team-high 97 receiving yards, 40 more than his nearest teammate. Wicks also ranked third on the team in routes, trailing TE Tucker Kraft and WR Romeo Doubs. Wicks' 7 targets trailed only Reed's 8. His playing time likely benefited from Reed leaving the game twice for a toe injury. We'll see about the statuses for Reed and Watson heading into Week 16.
