2022 PPR Draft Rankings

Allen Lazard Note

Allen Lazard could be the leading wide receiver for the Packers this season. The chemistry with Lazard and Rodgers has been battle-tested. Lazard wins with regularity in the areas of the field where Rodgers likes to pepper targets. Over the last three seasons, Rodgers has ranked 13th, 8th, and 13th in pass attempts between 0-9 yards from the line of scrimmage (per PFF). Over that same time span, Lazard has ranked seventh, first, and 25th in yards per route in this area of the field (minimum 20 short-area targets, per PFF).

Christian Watson Note

Christian Watson has the opportunity to become Aaron Rodgers' new bae. He'll have some catching up to do after missing nearly all of camp, but it's still in the range of outcomes for this season. His athleticism is a known commodity as he sports a 98th percentile speed score and 95th percentile burst score. Marrying Watson's immediate YAC ability with Rodgers will be a nice pairing. Watson has finished 12th, seventh, and 17th in the last three seasons in YAC per reception (among FCS and FBS wide receivers, minimum 50 targets per PFF).

Romeo Doubs Note

Romeo Doubs checks some prospect boxes I value. After four seasons at Nevada, he leaves with a 73rd percentile collegiate target share and 80th percentile breakout age. He is fresh off back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons. Doubs was 71st in yards per route run last year, which isn't eye-popping, but he was also 30th in PFF receiving grade (minimum 50 targets). Building an early rapport with Aaron Rodgers could go a long way toward surpassing his fourth-round draft capital and emerging as a consistent NFL weapon.

Sammy Watkins Note

Sammy Watkins' fantasy points per game over the last four seasons are as follows: 9.5, 8.0, 7.0 and 5.2. Not the direction you want to be going after joining his third team in three seasons.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky said that based on the investment the Packers gave Watkins - $350,000 signing bonus as part of a one-year deal - he's hardly a lock to even make the Week 1 roster.
