Jayden Reed Hauls In Four Receptions In Loss

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed caught all four of his targets for a gain of 35 yards and took his lone carry for a nine-yard gain during the team's 21-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The rookie went without a catch last week but ended the Divisional Round loss tied for the most receptions on the team. Reed was one of the breakout rookie wide receivers for fantasy managers over the back half of the regular season. While he did not do a ton in the postseason, Reed will enter the 2024 regular season as one of the top Packers skill position players to target in fantasy drafts. Romeo Doubs was the most productive Green Bay receiver during the playoffs, and Christian Watson did little as he made his way back from a hamstring injury. All three of these names will likely land as late-round draft selections, with Reed having the most upside.

Jayden Reed Looks To Bounce Back In Divisional Round

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed will go on the road to take on the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs on Saturday. The rookie led the Packers in receiving yards this season and was a late-season fantasy breakout, but failed to catch any of his three targets last week and played only 26 of the 56 offensive snaps. This was likely due to recovering from the chest injury that had given him problems toward the end of the regular season. All of the Packers receivers are healthy heading into the weekend, meaning the target share is going to be spread around even more by quarterback Jordan Love. With that said Reed has been a massive part of the Packers' success over the back half of the season and remains a flex option in DFS formats this weekend.

Christian Watson, Jayden Reed Limited In Practice Again

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Christian Watson (hamstring) and Jayden Reed (chest) were both listed as limited in practice for the second straight day this week on Wednesday. Watson missed the final games of the regular season but returned for the wild-card win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and played just 41 percent of the offensive snaps while catching one pass for a nine-yard gain. The 24-year-old should see the field more on Saturday against the San Francisco 49ers, but it's a bad matchup and Green Bay's impressive receiver depth is going to make it difficult for Watson to make a difference for fantasy managers. Reed, meanwhile, played just 26 of 56 snaps against Dallas and didn't catch any of his three targets. The 23-year-old rookie did have 10 total touchdowns in 2023, but he'll be a touchdown-dependent DFS play against San Fran.

Christian Watson, Jayden Reed Limited Tuesday

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Christian Watson (hamstring) and Jayden Reed (chest) were both listed as limited on the team's estimated practice report on Tuesday. Watson made his return in Sunday's wild-card victory over the Dallas Cowboys after missing the final five games of the regular season. It was an unceremonious return, as he caught just one pass for nine yards. It was better than what Reed did, though, as the impressive rookie failed to catch a pass on three targets. Both wideouts will be looking to bounce back in the Divisional Round, but it won't be easy against a stout San Francisco 49ers defense and with quarterback Jordan Love spreading the ball around to receivers Romeo Doubs and Dontayvion Wicks and tight ends Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft as well. Watson is still getting his legs back under him and could be limited again, making him extremely risky in DFS.

Jayden Reed Fails To Record A Catch In Wild Card Win

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed failed to catch any of his three targets during the team's 48-32 win over the Dallas Cowboys. The rookie led the Packers in receiving yards during the regular season and was red-hot over the final half of it, but he was not a focal point of the offense on Sunday. Romeo Doubs caught all six of his targets for 151 yards and a score, absorbing most of the yards gained by the wide receiver corps. Quarterback Jordan Love only had to throw 21 passes in this game, and with the Packers' receiver corps finally back to full strength, there were not enough targets to spread around. Reed remains a flex option next week when the Packers go on the road to take on the San Francisco 49ers.

Jayden Reed Could Be Top Target Against Dallas

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed will go on the road to take on the Dallas Cowboys in the first round of the NFL playoffs. Reed has dealt with a chest injury but was a full participant all week in practice and was left off of the final injury report. The rookie recorded his first 100-yard receiving game of his career last weekend on just four receptions and enters the weekend as the potential top target for quarterback Jordan Love. Christian Watson (hamstring) is once again listed as questionable, while the rest of the Packers' receiving corps was left off of the final injury report. Reed is set to have the most competition for targets since the early portion of the season, but due to his success down the stretch, he should command a solid target share and could even handle a few carries for good measure. Reed is the top target in DFS when looking at the Packers' depth chart, but he also carries the heftiest price tag.

Jayden Reed Gains 112 Yards In Win Over Bears

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed caught all four of his targets and gained 112 yards during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Chicago Bears. The rookie posted the first 100-yard receiving game of his career in Week 18, with the highlight of the night being a 59-yard catch in the fourth quarter that led to a field goal to put the game further out of reach for Chicago. Reed has been a consistent fantasy force since Week 10, putting up double-digit performances in all but one game during that span. Christian Watson (hamstring) should be back next week, but with Romeo Doubs (chest) status now up in the air, Reed will be a popular pickup for those in daily fantasy formats next weekend when the Packers take on the Dallas Cowboys.

Jayden Reed, Dontayvion Wicks Suiting Up Against Bears

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Jayden Reed (chest) and Dontayvion Wicks (chest) are active for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. Both players had been listed as questionable but were trending in the right direction after practicing all three days this past week. Reed, Wicks, and Romeo Doubs should all see significant opportunities this week with Christian Watson (hamstring) sidelined. Of the group, Reed has the most fantasy appeal, ranking as a high-end WR3.

Jan 7, 2024 3:10 PM EST


Dontayvion Wicks, Jayden Reed Questionable For Sunday

Green Bay Packers rookie wide receivers Dontayvion Wicks (chest) and Jayden Reed (chest) are both questionable to play in the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Christian Watson (hamstring), who has missed the last four games, is also questionable, but he appears to have a better shot at returning in a must-win game for the Packers. Before getting hurt in the Week 17 win over the Minnesota Vikings, Reed had six catches for 89 yards and two touchdowns with both Watson and Wicks out. Even if Watson returns to action this weekend, Reed, who we expect to play, will be the most expensive and attractive DFS play. The 23-year-old has been a touchdown machine in the second half of his first NFL season and has found the end zone seven times in the last seven games. On the flip side, Chicago isn't friendly to opposing wideouts, so all of Green Bay's receivers have some level of bust potential as well.

Christian Watson, Jayden Reed Limited Again Thursday

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Christian Watson (hamstring) and Jayden Reed (chest) were both limited in practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Watson could be on track to end his four-game absence from a hamstring injury he suffered in Week 13, although a full practice on Friday would really boost his chances even further. Reed, meanwhile, injured his chest in Sunday night's win over the Minnesota Vikings after sitting out of Week 16. Quarterback Jordan Love could have his full complement of weapons at receiver if Watson, Reed and rookie Dontayvion Wicks (chest) are all able to play in a must-win game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Watson will be a pretty volatile boom/bust fantasy option if he plays this weekend. Reed, meanwhile will be the most expensive DFS wideout for the Packers after scoring seven times in his last seven games.

Christian Watson, Jayden Reed, Dontayvion Wicks Limited

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Christian Watson (hamstring), Jayden Reed (chest) and Dontayvion Wicks (chest) were all listed as limited in the team's walkthrough practice estimation on Wednesday. It's the first time that Watson has been listed as limited in a practice since he injured his hamstring all the way back in Week 13. It doesn't necessarily mean the 24-year-old will return for a must-win Week 18 game against the Chicago Bears, but he's making good progress. Even if Watson does get the green light this Sunday, he'll be a volatile fantasy option in DFS lineups in a tough matchup, especially if both Reed and Wicks are also active. With Watson and Wicks out in last week's win over the Minnesota Vikings, Reed went off for six catches, 89 yards and two touchdowns. Reed has been a touchdown machine in the second half of his rookie campaign with seven total scores in his last seven games.

Jayden Reed In Doubt For Week 18

Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Jayden Reed (ribs), who left the Sunday night win over the Minnesota Vikings early after two impressive touchdowns, will have further tests on his injured ribs on Monday after X-rays came back negative Sunday night, according to sources. Reed is pretty sore, and it's safe to say his status for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Chicago Bears is in doubt. In addition to his two touchdowns, the 23-year-old caught six passes for 89 yards before leaving the game and not returning. The second-rounder had an expanded role in the offense with both Christian Watson (hamstring) and fellow rookie Dontayvion Wicks (ankle, chest) out, and he did not disappoint. Reed now has 10 total touchdowns (eight receiving, two rushing) in his first 15 NFL games. Depending on the statuses of Reed, Watson and Wicks, the Packers' receiving corps could be dangerously thin in a huge Week 18 matchup.

Jayden Reed Scores Twice Before Early Exit

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed (chest) exited Sunday's game before the second half with a chest injury and was later ruled out of the contest. The rookie came into the week with a chest injury and was later reported to have gotten a CT scan to evaluate the damage. Reed was on an absolute tear before exiting, catching six of eight targets for 89 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, it sounds like the 23-year-old could miss next week's season finale against the Chicago Bears and may be in danger of missing the Wild Card round of the playoffs if the Packers do indeed make it in. Romeo Doubs and Bo Melton will take over as the one-two punch unless Christian Watson (hamstring) or Dontayvion Wicks (chest/ankle) is able to return for Week 18.

Jayden Reed Cleared To Play Sunday Night

Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Jayden Reed (chest, toe) is off the final Week 17 injury report and will play on Sunday night versus the division-rival Minnesota Vikings. Reed missed the Week 16 win over the Carolina Panthers and should be returning to a significant role in Green Bay's offense with Christian Watson (hamstring) likely to miss his fourth straight game and fellow rookie Dontayvion Wicks (chest) questionable to play. The 23-year-old had been a very big part of the team's offense leading up to his missed contest on Christmas Eve. The rookie second-rounder out of Michigan State has scored five touchdowns (three receiving, two rushing) in his previous six games on 31 receptions (42 targets) for 259 yards. Reed scored two rushing TDs on nine attempts for 100 yards. He could end up being a sneaky flex play in fantasy lineups, especially if Wicks also ends up sitting out Sunday evening.

Another Limited Practice For Jayden Reed

Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Jayden Reed (chest, toe) was limited in the team's practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Reed missed the team's Week 16 win over the Carolina Panthers, a game in which fellow receiver Dontayvion Wicks (ankle, chest) was also injured. The 23-year-old second-rounder looks to have a chance to return in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings on New Year's Eve on Sunday night, especially if he can put in a full practice on Friday. Christian Watson (hamstring) is trending towards another missed game and with Wicks also hurt, Reed could be heavily involved this weekend if he's able to return. Before getting hurt in Week 15, Reed had accumulated five touchdowns (three receiving, two rushing) in six games since Week 10. He'll be in play as a WR3/flex in Week 17 if he can return to action.

Jayden Reed, Dontayvion Wicks Practice On Wednesday

Green Bay Packers rookie wide receivers Jayden Reed (chest, toe) and Dontayvion Wicks (chest) took part in the team's practice on Wednesday. Reed didn't practice at all last week and didn't play in the Week 16 win over the Carolina Panthers. Wicks, meanwhile, saw an expanded role before also getting hurt himself in the first half. The fact that both rookies are on the field for the first practice of the week bodes well for their availability in Week 17 on Sunday night against the Minnesota Vikings. However, if they both carry questionable tags, they'll be extremely risky options for fantasy managers in the final game of Week 17 action on Sunday evening. Christian Watson (hamstring) remains sidelined at practice, so Romeo Doubs and tight end Tucker Kraft could be in for steady targets for the second week in a row against Minnesota.

Dec 27, 2023 4:46 PM EST


Christian Watson, Jayden Reed Officially Inactive Sunday

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Christian Watson (hamstring) and Jayden Reed (toe, chest) are officially inactive for Week 16 versus the Carolina Panthers. Both players missed practice on Friday, so this update should come as no surprise. Watson's multi-week absence continues, but now he's joined on the sideline by Reed, leaving the Packers thin at wide receiver. Romeo Doubs and Dontayvion Wicks will lead the way at the position while Tucker Kraft, AJ Dillon, and Aaron Jones also occupy key pass-catching roles.

Dec 24, 2023 11:35 AM EST


Jayden Reed, Dontayvion Wicks Questionable For Sunday

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Jayden Reed (toe, chest) and Dontayvion Wicks (ankle) are officially questionable to play against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Reed had been absent from practice earlier this week while Wicks was a limited participant. Both players have an opportunity to see increased opportunities in Week 16 with Christian Watson (hamstring) not expected to play. Fantasy managers should view Reed, who has 14 catches and one touchdown over his last two games, as a solid WR3 option on Sunday, but only if he has a near-full workload. Meanwhile, Wicks finds himself in the low-end WR4 tier.

Dec 22, 2023 2:53 PM EST


Christian Watson, Jayden Reed Miss Practice Again

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Christian Watson (hamstring) and Jayden Reed (toe, chest) both missed a second straight day of practice on Thursday. Watson injured his hamstring in Week 13 and hasn't played the last two weeks. It doesn't appear he's close to returning for Week 16 on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Reed, meanwhile, has played through some nagging injuries in recent weeks. But he, too, could be in danger of sitting out this weekend, which would leave the Packers with Romeo Doubs and rookie Dontayvion Wicks (ankle) as their top two wideouts. Reed has become somewhat of a must-start after scoring five touchdowns in the last six games for the Packers. Rookie tight end Tucker Kraft would be a lot more interesting as a TE streamer in fantasy if both Watson and Reed are out, too.

Christian Watson, Jayden Reed Miss Practice Wednesday

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Christian Watson (hamstring) and Jayden Reed (chest, toe) did not practice with the team on Wednesday. A hamstring injury suffered in Week 13 has caused Watson to miss the last two games, and he's trending toward missing a third in Week 16 versus the Carolina Panthers this Sunday unless he returns to practice on Thursday or Friday. Reed has been on the team's injury report the last several weeks, but unlike Watson, he has been active and has been a touchdown machine for Green Bay. The 23-year-old rookie second-rounder from Michigan State has now scored five touchdowns (three receiving, two rushing) in the last six games. The Packers receiver room is pretty banged up yet again heading into this weekend, though, with rookie Dontayvion Wicks (ankle) also on the injury report.
