Packers Beat: 'Strong showing' by WR Jared Abbrederis could lead to a breakout season
Aug 24, 2016
ESPN's Rob Demovsky picked WR Jared Abbrederis as his breakout player to watch:
The third-year receiver has built off the momentum that he established in the playoff loss at Arizona last year, when he came off the bench and caught four passes for 55 yards. Thanks to a strong showing in training camp combined with Jeff Janis' broken hand, Abbrederis continues to move up the Packers' depth chart.

Abbrederis is competing with Davante Adams at this point for snaps behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. The Packers' WR3 will play 70% or more of the snaps, though he's listed on the Packers' depth chart as Cobb's backup.
