Packers Beat: Marquez Valdes-Scantling 'probably' the WR2

When the Green Bay Packers’ offense lined up for the first minicamp practice, Marquez Valdes-Scantling took his place on the field alongside Pro Bowl receiver Davante Adams.

On the second day, Valdes-Scantling was there again.

Whether first-year coach Matt LaFleur sent out his base personnel or a three-receiver set, the man known around Lambeau Field as "MVS" was part of the package during this week’s practices.

If the mandatory minicamp revealed anything about the Packers’ new offense, it’s that the second-year pro is a starter. In fact, he probably is the No. 2 receiver behind Adams. with Geronimo Allison likely slated as the slot man in the three-wide look.

Fantasy Impact: 

We were assuming Allison would serve as the No. 2 option until we heard differently. Well, now we're hearing differently. We've flipped MVS and Allison in the projections. He's looking like a nice value in the double-digit rounds, and recently went 9.01 in one of our 4for4 mock drafts.
