Christian Watson News
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson will travel to Chicago to face the Bears in Week 13. The rookie receiver has scored six touchdowns over the past three weeks, nabbing at least one in every game. Watson has received at least six targets in the past three weeks and is slowly starting to take over as quarterback Aaron Rodgers' top target. Teammate Romeo Doubs (ankle) has been practicing in a limited fashion this week and has a chance to return, but Green Bay could hold him out with their bye coming up next week. Even if Doubs plays, it will likely be in a limited fashion and should not affect Watson's target share. The Bears allow the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position but have allowed an average of 32.2 points over the past five games and have had trouble stopping the Packers in recent matchups. With a high fantasy scoring ceiling due to the touchdown potential, Watson should be considered a high-end FLEX option in Week 13.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson caught four of his six targets for 110 yards and a score during the team's 40-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. It is the third week in a row that the rookie has found the end zone, but his two-game multi-touchdown scoring streak was broken in the process. Watson did most of his damage late on a 63-yard touchdown catch-and-run delivered by quarterback Jordan Love. The 23-year-old has emerged as an every-week fantasy start over the past three weeks and will look to continue to roll next week against a Chicago defense that was just torn apart by Jets quarterback Mike White. Consider Watson a locked and loaded WR2 in Week 13.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson will go on the road to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The rookie has been on a tear the past two weeks, scoring five touchdowns and tallying 155 yards. Expecting a multi-touchdown performance every week is foolish, but the fact remains that Watson is quickly becoming one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets when looking to score. The 23-year-old has averaged seven targets over the past two weeks and should remain heavily involved against the Eagles' defense. Philadelphia has allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position, but Watson still sits squarely on the FLEX radar this week due to his ability to find the end zone. Consider the rookie a solid FLEX option in Week 12.
Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Christian Watson has an opportunity of a lifetime with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and a thin wide receiver room. The 23-year-old Watson burst onto the national spotlight at the NFL Combine, where he emerged as arguably the most athletic receiver in a loaded class. His athleticism and opportunity to have a secure snap share with an elite quarterback give him significant upside, but his learning curve is likely to make for inconsistency and frustration for...
