GB WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Lions

The biggest surprise of Week 1 for the Green Bay Packers wasn't so much the blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints as it was Marquez Valdes-Scantling's workload in the game. The downfield specialist saw, depending on the stats provider, six to eight targets out of 23 pre-blowout looks from starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That was within shouting distance of clear top receiver Davante Adams, and might even have been the most on the team. This workload bodes well for MVS, even if he ended up with just three catches.

In Week 2, our models project a more modest output of 3.1 catches for 54.9 yards and 0.4 touchdowns for Valdes-Scantling. It's unlikely Green Bay will need his deep-ball stylings much in a game against the Detroit Lions that should end up a blowout in the Packers' favor. Still, he's a guy to keep an eye on for the workload upside and a potential breakout later this season.

GB WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Saints
It's hard to know how the Green Bay Packers' target shares will be dispersed among the lower wide receivers on the depth chart, but our best assumption is that deep threat Marquez Valdes-Scantling will remain the number-two. Our models project MVS for 3.0 receptions for 52.5 yards and 0.3 touchdowns, which would put him just outside the top-50 fantasy wide receivers for the first week of the 2021 season.

GB WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs Minnesota

MVS continues to see his production slip as he did not record a catch while seeing four targets last week against the Texans. Valdes-Scantling’s only productive play came from a nine-yard rush. It’s getting harder and harder to justify rostering MVS, as the bulk of the targets are going to Davante Adams with the rest being peppered to Robert Tonyan and the backfield. MVS is barely a WR4 in Week 8 and should remain on your bench.

GB WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Houston

MVS had yet another forgettable performance in Week 6 against Tampa Bay as he caught three passes for 32 yards on five targets. Valdes-Scantling has yet to produce any meaningful fantasy games outside of his Week 1 performance and is now Aaron Rodgers’ third or fourth option. Even so, MVS is still worth rostering and is probably looking as a WR4 this week as you can never count out in receiver that’s tethered to Rodgers.

GB WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Tampa Bay

With plenty of opportunities to flourish in Davante Adams’ absence due to injury, MVS failed to produce any meaningful game as Rodgers' top receiver. Rather, he surrendered targets to breakout TE Robert Tonyan and even backup RB Jamaal Williams. With Davante Adams back in the lineup, it is difficult to see MVS producing much against Tampa Bay in Week 6. While having Adams back might help MVS get more open looks, MVS should not be seen as anything higher than a WR4 this week.

GB WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at New Orleans

Valdez-Scantling finished his Week 2 matchup with three receptions for 64 yards but most importantly, he had a total of seven targets. This level of trust MVS is receiving from Aaron Rodgers is further entrenching MVS as the second receiving option in this offense behind Davante Adams, which is doubly important this week as the latter might miss Sunday night’s game against New Orleans.

MVS has earned weekly WR4 viability, but he should be viewed a high-end WR3 in this one as even if Adams doesn’t miss Week 3, his hamstring injury might make more of a decoy to attract the attention of shutdown corner Marshon Lattimore.

GB WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Carolina Panthers
Marquez Valdes-Scantling failed to catch either of his targets last week and is dealing with knee and ankle injuries this week. He hasn't gotten more than three targets in his past four games -- and that was without Davante Adams playing. It won't get any easier for him now, even if he does play. Pass on MVS this week.
