  • Sammy Watkins Ready To Practice

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) sounds ready to practice on Friday at training camp, and head coach Matt LaFleur said the plan is to take Watkins off the Non-Football Injury list. It's good news for the 29-year-old veteran pass-catcher as he looks to gain chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in his first season in Green Bay. There's a lot of opportunity for the Packers receivers in 2022 with Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown all gone. Allen Lazard figures to be Rodgers' top target in the passing game, but Watkins has a chance to earn a big role. Until Watkins proves he can stay healthy and produce on a weekly basis, though, most fantasy managers will avoid him in drafts this fall.

  • 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.

  • Sammy Watkins Expected Back Sooner Than Later

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Sammy Watkins landed on the Non-Football Injury list this Tuesday. The team hasn't released any info as to why Watkins was placed on the list, but Packers reporter Rob Demovsky stated late on Tuesday that there is no long-term concern for Watkins. The team expects for him to be back on the field sooner rather than later. Watkins is entering his first season with the Packers after he spent one season with the Baltimore Ravens, catching 27 of his 49 targets for 394 yards and a touchdown. He's likely to be one of Aaron Rodgers' primary targets this season, but his long track record of injuries and inconsistency makes him someone to avoid in fantasy drafts this fall.

  • Sammy Watkins Placed On NFI List

    The Green Bay Packers placed veteran wide receiver Sammy Watkins on the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday with an undisclosed ailment. It's not a great sign for an aging receiver looking to establish chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in his first year with the Cheese Heads. The 29-year-old pass-catcher saw some run with the first-team offense during offseason workouts, but the oft-injured receiver hasn't played in a full season since his rookie year with the Buffalo Bills in 2014. In fact, that was his only fully healthy season in his eight-year career. Watkins caught 27 of 49 targets for 394 yards and one touchdown in 14 games for Baltimore in 2021. There's opportunity in Green Bay's receiver's room in 2022 with Davante Adams now gone, but Watkins is unlikely to be a consistent weekly producer for fantasy managers.

  • Latest On Packers WR Allen Lazard

    Like a number of other teams, the Packers held their mandatory minicamp this past week. Attendance wasn’t an issue from a legal perspective, but there was a notable absence nevertheless. Wideout Allen Lazard was not with the team, as noted (on Twitter) by ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.  Lazard found himself as a restricted free agent for the second […]

  • Sammy Watkins Set To Work With Aaron Rodgers

    Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that wide receiver Sammy Watkins was present for two practices at organized team activities last week, but he'll be on the practice field with quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the first time at mandatory minicamp this week. The Packers are planning for Watkins to be a big part of their offense in 2022 to help make up for the losses of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. While the 28-year-old has some opportunity this year, he'll still be competing with the likes of Juwann Winfree, Amari Rodgers, Malik Taylor and rookie Christian Watson for playing time, so Watkins is no sure bet to suddenly become a reliable fantasy contributor in Green Bay. He caught 27 passes for 394 yards and one touchdown in 13 games (nine starts) for the Baltimore Ravens in 2021.

  • Sammy Watkins Still Not At OTAs

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Sammy Watkins has not yet participated in the team's offseason workouts. When asked if he was missing much with the absence of starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, head coach Matt Lafleur replied, "I'm not comfortable with anybody not being here. I'd like them all to be here. Next week is mandatory minicamp. So there will be consequences (then) for not coming." Watkins agreed to a one-year deal worth $4 million but was never a guarantee for a starting spot on the depth chart. The 28-year-old had his worst year as a pro in Baltimore last year, recording 27 receptions on 49 targets for 394 yards and one score. It is worth keeping an eye on whether Watkins is present during mandatory minicamp and can begin building a rapport with Rodgers. If he remains absent, expect wide receivers Allen Lazard and rookie Christian Watson to dominate reps with the first-team offense.
