2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Every Batman needs a sidekick, so can Valdes-Scantling be Robin for Devante Adams? If last year's rookie numbers are any indication, this could be the next great Green Bay dynamic duo.

A raw 5th round rookie from South Florida, MVS has speed to burn, and uncoachable height. With the departure of Jordy Nelson, the decline of Randall Cobb, and injury to Geronimo Allison, Valdes-Scantling was probably thrust into a bigger role than the Packers expected, but he responded positively, playing in all 16 games and putting up a solid 38-581-2 line on 73 targets. Sure, the near 50% catch rate isn't ideal, but Valdes-Scantling certainly flashed in a mid-season 4-game stretch that saw him go over 60 yards three times, hit the century mark twice, and score two touchdowns. He faded a little down the stretch before a decent finish, but all-in-all in was an impressive rookie season.

With another year under his belt, and the continued development with Rodgers, MVS has a chance to be a much bigger fantasy player in 2019. With the No.2 outside receiver position his to lose opposite Adams, he should see plenty of single coverage. If he can learn to play to his strengths and build on his route tree, Valdes-Scantling is worth significant draft capital. He's got great upside in an offense run by Rodgers, and should approach WR3 numbers, with a chance to have some big weeks. With a strong camp his ADP should rise into the single digits.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Packers likley to be without Davante Adams
Toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 11, 2:28 pm

Green Bay Packers
From NFL Now: The #Packers are likely going to be without WR Davante Adams (turf toe) this Monday, but a return looms from an injury that had a timetable of 2-6 weeks. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Adams owners need to find a replacement. He injured his toe in Week 4 but isn't ready to return. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison will the top two receivers for the time being. The Packers have above average matchups on their upcoming schedule including games against OAK, KC and LAC.


Injury Adams, Williams miss practice Thursday for Packers
Adams does light jogging off to the side
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 3, 2:20 pm

Green Bay Packers
Davante Adams (toe) did a little jogging off to the side and Jamaal Williams (concussion) went through stretching but neither practiced. Same with cornerbacks Kevin King (groin) and Tony Brown (hamstring). (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Adams suffered a toe injury in Week 4 and appears to be headed for the Inactive list along with Jamaal Williams (concussion). If they do sit, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison and Jake Kumerow would be the top three receivers with Dexter Williams backing up Aaron Jones at running back.


Injury Davante Adams dealing with turf toe
Forced from TNF midway through fourth quarter
By: Doug Orth | Fri Sep 27, 2:00 am

Green Bay Packers
The only thing that could stop Davante Adams and the Green Bay Packers' offense Thursday was the little blue injury tent adjacent to their bench. The Pro Bowl receiver was having the most productive game of his career - 10 catches for 180 yards - before being forced off the field because of a toe injury midway through the fourth quarter. Adams conducted his postgame interview holding his right shoe in his hand. He called it a turf toe injury and said it was so painful "I don't even want to try" to put his shoe on. (ESPN - Rob Demovsky)

FFToday's Take: It seems almost unthinkable what Adams' absence might do to this passing game, but it's looking like a reality now. Toe injuries are particularly devastating for receivers and running backs, so we may not see him anywhere close at 100 percent the rest of the year. Bigger roles are likely in the immediate futures of Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison.


Marquez Valdes-Scantling making strides
QB pleased with second-year WR's development
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 25, 10:50 pm

Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has "really jumped out" since spring practices, according to QB Aaron Rodgers. "There's a big difference between a guy who can time fast and play fast. And playing fast is where the confidence comes," Rodgers told James Jones of NFL Network. (NFL Network)

FFToday's Take: Valdes-Scantling flashed almost immediately after Geronimo Allison was lost for the season, but Rodgers seemed to ignore him for a long stretch near the end of the season. Even if Allison grabs the slot role as expected in 2019, MVS has legitimate WR3 upside in fantasy as a field-stretcher who won't see much safety help working opposite Davante Adams.


Geronimo Allison to fill slot role in GB offense
Allison, MVS are upside targets in the middle rounds
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 23, 7:23 pm

Green Bay Packers
Receiver Geronimo Allison reports for his fourth NFL training camp but his first where he's main focus will be playing in the slot. "I like it," Allison said. "Coming in, I've always been that utility guy, that versatile guy to kind of move around. I'm loving it. I'm getting comfortable inside and outside, and I'm going to make the most of every opportunity." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have been mid-round upside fliers in early fantasy drafts. Both are expected to start in three-wide receiver sets but it sounds like Allison will be the main man in the slot position with Davante Adams and MVS outside. We should get a better idea of how new head coach Matt LaFleur's offense will look once pre-season games begin.
