  • Christian Watson Won't Be Rushed Back

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson (knee) doesn't have a return date. However, while general manager Brian Gutekunst reported that he isn't "overly concerned" with the rookie missing time during training camp, the team won't rush him back either. After totaling 43 catches for 801 yards and seven touchdowns throughout his final year at North Dakota State, Watson now resides on the PUP list. As a result, there's a good chance he won't make an immediate impact in 2022-23, although there is still plenty of dynasty attractiveness and late-season redraft appeal, assuming he gets healthy enough to take the field.

  • Packers Not Looking To Add A Veteran Receiver

    Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said he's not looking to add a veteran wide receiver at this point in training camp, in part because there's not a lot out there right now and he "really likes the group we have." It's a bit surprising considering both veteran Sammy Watkins and rookie Christian Watson aren't ready to begin practicing in training camp due to minor injuries. Allen Lazard was already considered the team's No. 1 pass-catcher heading into this season with Davante Adams now with the Raiders, and he should be the most consistent fantasy weapon in the Packers' receiving corps in 2022, even if Green Bay did bring in another body.

  • Christian Watson's Injury Isn't Serious

    Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Christian Watson's (undisclosed) injury isn't considered serious and he's expected to "miss a little bit of time" in training camp, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst. Watson was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Tuesday after having an undisclosed procedure in the offseason. The 23-year-old pass-catcher has plenty of upside in a receiving corps with plenty of opportunity now that Davante Adams is gone, but missed time in training camp for rookies is never a good thing. Watson never caught more than 43 passes in a single season at North Dakota State, so he might need more seasoning than most rookie wideouts, making him a better late-round flier in rookie-only drafts in 2022.
