Marquez Valdes-Scantling News
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) was officially placed on the Injured Reserve on Saturday. The latest development wasn't a surprise, primarily since he was already ruled out for the Week 4 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 26-year-old is currently ranked second on the team in targets and receiving yards, although he still hasn't been a stable fantasy producer this season. He has a chance to return in Week 7 against the Washington Football Team. However, in the meantime, managers should continue to expect plenty of looks for Davante Adams, with Aaron Jones, Robert Tonyan, and Allen Lazard also in line to benefit. Equanimeous St. Brown was additionally promoted to the active roster in a corresponding move, though he doesn't have much upside.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and is expected to be placed on the short-term Injured Reserve, according to a source. The Packers are worried that the speedy downfield threat could aggravate his injury if he tries to play through it. If MVS goes on IR, he'll be forced to miss at least three weeks. Through three weeks, Valdes-Scantling is second among Packers wideouts with 16 targets, and he's caught six of them for 76 yards and one TD. Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, rookie Amari Rodgers and Malik Taylor will now battle for looks behind top wideout Davante Adams. Cobb and Lazard are the best bets to fill out three-receiver sets and are worth a pickup in deeper leagues.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) missed Thursday's practice, but he shouldn't miss much more time. Still, the speedster may miss the against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4, but he presumably won't miss any more time beyond that. Fantasy managers shouldn't have been starting Valdes-Scantling in standard leagues anyways, but this injury makes him one to avoid this weekend. However, the 26-year-old still warrants occasional DFS consideration and a roster spot in deeper leagues, as he is clearly capable of catching a long touchdown in any given week.
