McCarthy: Packers WR Jeff Janis 'is doing a lot of good things'

Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Packers HC Mike McCarthy on WR Jeff Janis:

Jeff Janis is doing a lot of good things. He just needs to continue to progress through the fundamentals of the position. Special teams he had an excellent year last year, graded out as one of our top players. I’d like to see him take that same step as a wide receiver.

Jeff is a big target that can go deep. I think the play he made today was really good concentration on his part, competing through the interaction with the DB and tip of the ball and keep playing. He’s a very strong wide receiver. I think that surprises people. He uses his strength and his speed.

Fantasy Impact: 

Janis finished the season with a seven-catch, 145-yard, two-touchdown day against the Cardinals in the playoffs. But the team was reluctant to play him all year despite major injury issues at the position. Now, with everybody healthy it seems unlikely that he beats out Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery and rookie Trevor Davis to be the team's third receiver.
