Fantasy Impact:

According to the report, Valdes-Scantling has impressed in training camp and looks poised to be the Packers’ No. 2, opposite Davante Adams. The former has received praise from Adams, who said, “I think this offense is really catered for a guy like him.” Valdes-Scantling was impressive in limited action last season as a rookie, catching 38 balls for 581 yards and two scores, and notching a pair of 100-yard games. His role as the No. 2 comes at the expense of Geronimo Allison (who is likely to play primarily in the slot) and Jake Kumerow. With a healthy Aaron Rodgers and the support of coaches and teammates, Valdes-Scantling could be in for a big leap in production in his second year, making him a value pick at his current ADP of WR57.
