Roster %


Christian Watson only ran a route on 48% of the dropbacks, as he was on a snap count. However, he was targeted on 20% of his routes (4) and he caught two for 25 yards including a wide-open TD at the goal line. However, this was after Doubs got tackled inside the 5-yard line after A.J. Dillon was stuffed (shocked).
His routes will increase (like Jones) in Week 5, making him somebody who's value could increase. However, I think I am in position where I'd like to sell high on Watson after he scored. Because his path to being the No. 1 WR has changed drastically in my opinion. Doubs, Jayden Reed and Musgrave have all shown they can earn targets and be big parts of the Packers offense. If someone is valuing Watson as high as his Round 4 draft capital was during draft season, I'd capitalize.
And although I have been low on Doubs, I might be changing my tune slightly after another strong outing. It's clear that he and Jordan Love have a connection, and that didn't change in Week 4 with Watson back in the starting lineup. Doubs was viewed as a candidate that could lead the Packers in catches this season, and so far, he is coming through on the lofty expectations. In PPR leagues, I think he's another player to seek in trade with his trade value likely not matching his production thus far. Watson's return might make him expendable despite how productive he has been. Guy has 12-plus targets in back-to-back games. 26.5% target rate per route run.
