Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has hit a bit of a rough patch after a handful of impressive games in the middle of the season. He only has 49 receiving yards combined over the last four weeks. He has struggled to create separation in one-on-one coverage as defenses put more resources towards stopping him. Valdes-Scantlings low production is unlikely to improve in Week 15 when he takes on one of the best defenses in the NFL in the Chicago Bears. In addition to the difficult matchup, Valdes-Scantling will also be competing for targets with Randall Cobb, who has returned from a lengthy absence due to injuries. Valdes-Scantling is a solid deep threat, so there is some upside, but he should still be avoided in fantasy in almost all circumstances.
9 days ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Unlikely To See Boost In Week 14
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has a favorable matchup in Week 14 against a vulnerable Atlanta Falcons defense. Valdes-Scantling broke out earlier this year when he filled in for an injured Randall Cobb, averaging 71 yards receiving with two touchdowns from Week 4 to Week 9. However, he has averaged only 18.5 receiving yards per game since and has scored no touchdowns. The drop in production wasnt caused by a reduced role. Rather, it was from increased attention from opposing defenses. Valdes-Scantling, a tall and speedy player, has difficulty creating separation in one-on-one coverage. There isnt a schematic change that is going to be able to fix that this year. With wide receiver Jake Kumerow returning from injured reserve, Valdes-Scantling may see his role reduced for the remainder of the season. Valdes-Scantling can become a useful player if he improves his route running in the offseason, so he is worth holding on to in dynasty formats. However, he is too risky of a player to warrant any consideration for use in a fantasy playoff game.
13 days ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Struggles Again In Week 13
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught only two passes on seven targets for 19 yards. He added two carries for 29 yards on the day. Valdes-Scantling broke out earlier in the year, with his speed adding a sorely needed element to Green Bays offense. However, he has always struggled to create separation in one-on-one situations and as he has attracted more defensive attention the problem has become more conspicuous. Valdes-Scantling needs to work on his route running going forward. His potential makes him a worthwhile dynasty stash, but his production in recent weeks means that he can be ignored in redraft leagues, especially with no teams left on bye.
16 days ago: Temper Expectations For Marquez Valdes-Scantling In Week 13
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling seemingly has an excellent opportunity to rebound this Sunday against a vulnerable Arizona Cardinals. Valdes-Scantling has had a rough past three weeks, with only 55 yards receiving over that span, after breaking out earlier in the year. The issue is that his struggles over the past handful of games stem from some very real issues. He has demonstrated a real difficulty with creating separation in one-on-one situations. This wasnt as evident when he was attracting minimal defensive attention, but that time has come and passed. Additionally, Green Bay could be getting wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jake Kumerow back from injuries this week. Both players were above Valdes-Scantling on the depth chart in training camp. Valdes-Scantling is worth keeping an eye on due to his deep-threat ability, but should only be rostered in dynasty leagues. Despite the good matchup, Valdes-Scantling should not be started in Week 13 especially since there are no more teams on bye.
19 days ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Continues To Disappoint
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught only one pass for three yards in a Week 12 Sunday night matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Valdes-Scantling had established himself as the No. 2 receiving option in Green Bay but has been massively disappointing over the past three weeks. The rookie wide receiver has big play ability and was able to catch some teams off guard while filling in for an injured Randall Cobb. Now that he has garnered more attention from opposing defenses he has struggled to produce. Valdes-Scantling has always lagged in his route running and has had a tremendous amount of difficulty creating any separation from defenders. While he could be better utilized within the offense, it is time to reign in the more optimistic of expectations. Marquez Valdes-Scantling has value as a desperation flex fill-in, but does not need to be rostered as the fantasy playoffs begin.
24 days ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Unlikely To Bounce Back In Week 12
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has struggled over the past two weeks, averaging 3.5 receptions for 26 yards over that span. Those struggles are likely to continue when he plays a tough Minnesota Vikings pass defense in Week 12. Marquez Valdes-Scantling saw his profile rise earlier this year when he filled in for an injured Randall Cobb at wide receiver. When Cobb returned, Valdes-Scantling still took more snaps and saw more targets than Cobb. Cobb has missed the past two weeks and may return in Week 12, but Valdes-Scantling is likely to remain the No. 2 option regardless. Valdes-Scantling is a tall and fast wide receiver with solid hands. Where he has struggled lately has been with his route running and creating separation in man coverage. Valdes-Scantling was always going to be a boom-or-bust type of player, so his low production shouldnt scare anyone off by itself. However, his struggles in creating separation should temper expectations going forward. Valdes-Scantling can be considered a low-end flex option in Week 12 who should be avoided if possible. He should not be rostered after the conclusion of bye weeks.
29 days ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Quiet On Thursday Night
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught only one pass for eight yards on a Thursday night matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Valdes-Scantling is ostensibly the No. 2 receiver in Green Bay but has put up a dud for the second straight week. Valdes-Scantling is fast, sure-handed, and is generally in the right spot. This resulted in a couple big games earlier this year where he was able to utilize his speed for some chunk plays. However, the rookie wide receiver is still raw and has struggled to create separation with defenders in man coverage. With defenses focusing on him more his production regressed. It seems like it is about to time reign in the optimism about Valdes-Scantling. He has a good deal of potential but is simply not a player who can be relied upon on week-to-week basis. He still has some value as a bye week fill in or as a high variability underdog flex play, but he doesnt demand a roster spot going forward.
1 month ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling A Flex Option In Week 11
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling will be taking on a tough Seattle Seahawks defense on Thursday night for a Week 11 matchup. Valdes-Scantling has quickly established himself as the second receiving option in Green Bay this year. However, his production has been inconsistent and when he has had big weeks it has been largely big play dependent. While he has earned a good deal of trust from quarterback Aaron Rodgers there is still the occasional miscommunication. So it is a reach to suggest that Valdes-Scantling should be considered a WR2 for fantasy purposes at this point. However, he strongly warrants flex consideration for Week 11 due to his big play ability. Valdes-Scantling has good size and excellent speed and is the best deep threat option in Green Bay. He is inconsistent with creating separation in man coverage but the big play ability is there. Valdes-Scantling should be owned in all leagues and is a quality flex play or bye week fill-in for Week 11.
1 month ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Quiet In Week 10
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught six passes on seven targets for 44 yards in a Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins. Wide receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison were inactive in the game, so there was hope that Valdes-Scantling could capitalize on the opportunity and have a big game. Despite the defense keying in on fellow wide receiver Davante Adams, Valdes-Scantling was unable to manage much yardage. Part of the issue was that Green Bay really emphasized the running game. However, Valdes-Scantling still showed some difficulty creating separation in 1-on-1 matchups. That is likely to improve as he gains experience. It wasnt a stereotypical game for Valdes-Scantling, who profiles more as a deep threat. He had one of the highest yards per catch in the NFL. He is fast, has great size, and has shown a knack for coming down with difficult catches. Valdes-Scantling will have a better weeks in the future, but this game demonstrates why there should be some restraint penciling him in as a WR2.
1 month ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Set To Continue Run
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has quickly risen up the depth charts to become the number two wide receiver in Green Bay. While Randall Cobb may nominally have that role, Valdes-Scantling has seen more snaps and targets over the past two weeks than Cobb. Valdes-Scantling provides a speed element that is sorely lacking in Green Bay and has proven to be reliable. He delivered in some big moments last week, racking up over 100 yards against the New England Patriots. Valdes-Scantling is going up against a vulnerable Miami defense that ranks 23rd in pass defense DVOA according to Football Outsiders. With a favorable matchup and a growing role, Valdes-Scantling should be considered a high-end flex/low-end WR 2 for Week 10.
1 month ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Leads Green Bay in Receiving
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling led all Packers in receiving yards with three catches for 101 yards in Week 9s matchup against the New England Patriots. Valdes-Scantling only caught half of his targets but he made some monster plays when it mattered most, including an incredibly difficult contested grab that kept a drive alive. Valdes-Scantling has effectively become Green Bays second wide receiver. Wide receiver Randall Cobb has struggled all year and he looked very slow Sunday night. Valdes-Scantling has seen more snaps and targets than Cobb over the course of the past two weeks. Valdes-Scantling is a fast and tall player who has earned a significant amount of trust from quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues and figures to be a solid flex option going forward.
1 month ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Has An Opportunity In Week 9
With the news that Green Bay wide receiver Geronimo Allison (groin) has been ruled out for Week 9s matchup against the New England Patriots, rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling should see significant action in the game. Valdes-Scantling filled in for an injured Allison earlier this year and performed well. Valdes-Scantlings role in Green Bays offense has gradually grown this year as quarterback Aaron Rodgers confidence in the rookie has grown. Valdes-Scantling brings much needed speed to Green Bays offense. It is hard to predict how many targets any Green Bay player will receive outside of receiver Davante Adams, so there some risk in starting Valdes-Scantling. However, the upside is there to warrant a flex start. You can view Marquez Valdes-Scantling as a high-risk/high-upside option for Week 9 and an excellent bye week fill-in for any team in need.
1 month ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling High-Risk Play in Week 9
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has continued to carve out a bigger and bigger role in Green Bays offense. The tall and fast receiver has developed some trust from Aaron Rodgers and saw the second most snaps of any Green Bay receiver last week. Still, it is unclear if he will get enough targets to have any fantasy significance in Week 9 against the New England Patriots. Valdes-Scantling filled in admirably for injured wide receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison but it was assumed he would spend most of his time on the bench when they returned. Instead he saw more snaps than either in Week 8. The number two spot on the depth chart in Green Bay is a valuable role and if Valdes-Scantling locked down the spot he would be a real fantasy asset. However, there just isnt enough information yet to know for certain that this will be the case. He is worth holding onto but shouldnt be started if avoidable. He should only be considered a high-risk/high-reward flex play in deep leagues for Week 9.
2 months ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Catches Touchdown In Week 8
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught two passes on five targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in a Week 8 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Valdes-Scantling has emerged this year as the top rookie wide receiver option in Green Bay. His role was larger in the past few games when several other wide receivers missed time due to injuries. Still, it was nice to see him maintain some kind of role even with the whole wide receiver corps healthy. Valdes-Scantling is tall and fast and has shown some affinity towards picking up Green Bays playbook. Still, he was an unheralded draft prospect for a reason and his ceiling likely falls short of an elite receiver. That is still much better than fellow wide receiver Geronimo Allison. At this point Valdes-Scantling does not warrant a roster spot unless there are injuries. However, he is worth keeping an eye on as his role may increase as the weeks go on.
2 months ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Likely To See Role Reduced in Week 8
Despite some encouraging performances, Green Bay rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling is likely to spend much of Week 8 on the bench. Valdes-Scantling saw a lot of snaps and targets in Green Bays last two games, but with wide receivers Geronimo Allison (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) likely returning for Week 8s game against the Los Angeles Rams Valdes-Scantlings role will be reduced. Valdes-Scantling has clearly surpassed the other rookies on the depth chart to become the fourth option in Green Bay. While he has shown some promise, it hasnt been quite enough there to warrant starting him over more experienced options. This is especially true in Green Bay where both quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the coaching staff value experience. Valdes-Scantling will maintain some low-end flex value if either Allison or Cobb does not play, otherwise he should not be started in fantasy.
2 months ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Tops 100 Yards In Week 6
Green Bay rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three passes for 103 yards on six targets in a win against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. Most of those yards came on a single pass early in the game that went for 60 yards where he was seemingly uncovered. Valdes-Scantling was on the field for much of the game filling in for injured wide receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison. Valdes-Scantling has separated himself from the other rookie wide receivers and was the clear number two option at wide receiver in the game. Despite some nice plays over the last few weeks, there has still been some moments of miscommunication between him and Rodgers. This will likely relegate him back to the bench when Allison and Cobb return, which is likely to happen after the Week 7 bye. Since their return is imminent, Valdes-Scantling should only be owned in deeper leagues and dynasty leagues.
2 months ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Could Be Given Opportunity Again
Green Bay rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has clearly earned more trust from quarterback Aaron Rodgers than his fellow rookie wide receivers have. He has established himself as fourth on the depth chart and garnered 10 targets last week against Detroit. Those targets largely came as the result of injuries that kept Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) out of the game. However, both players are limited in practice and may miss time again in Week 6 when Green Bay takes on the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. Valdes-Scantling will have value if either player misses time but will largely be relegated to bench if both are active. Normally in this situation Valdes-Scantling would be a player to keep an eye on as a bye week or injury fill-in. However, since it will be hard to know his usage until Monday night you should avoid relying on him for Week 6.
2 months ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Looks Impressive For Packers
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling was in a position to get plenty of playing time with Randall Cobb(hamstring) and Geronimo Allison(concussion, hamstring) both inactive for the Week 5 contest against the Detroit Lions. He looked to be nervous to start the game, but he quickly shook it off and had a nice day. He caught seven of his 10 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown. It's also worth noting that he was down only a few inches short of having a second touchdown. Unfortunately for him Cobb and Allison could both return this week and cost him most of his fantasy value. If one of those two doesn't play next week then he still has some fantasy value, but if not he'll be overshadowed. Keep an eye on the injury report before Week 6 when the Packers take on the Dallas Cowboys.
3 months ago: Marquez Valdes-Scantling Not Expected To See Much Action
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling does not figure to play heavily into Green Bay's game plan against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. The rookie wide receiver has looked capable at times during the preseason, but is currently buried on the depth chart. We will learn a bit about where he stands during the game. However, we can safely say that he will not be getting enough snaps or targets to be worth fantasy consideration. At this point he should not be owned in any fantasy leagues.
