Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling will have his 2021 salary increase to $2.183 million because of the proven performance escalator.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling averaged 20.9 yards per catch this season and finished with 690 yards and six touchdowns, which are both career highs. He should continue to be a deep threat for the Packer and could be a late round pick in fantasy drafts.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling hauled in six passes for 85 yards and a touchdown on six targets Sunday, Dec. 13, at the Detroit Lions in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Week 11 was the last time MVS even caught a pass, so it was encouraging to see him post a strong stat line vs. the Lions. That said, he's terribly inconsistent and has only three games of relevance in 2020. The Panthers head to Green Bay in Week 15, and Valdes-Scantling is a fringe flex play for gamers willing to risk it.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling did not catch a pass against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Dec. 6. He was targeted twice and ran once for negative-four yards.
Huddle Up: In two games since his critical fumble in Indianapolis, MVS hasn't caught a pass. He was targeted deep by Rodgers early in the second half but dropped what should've been a gain of 50-plus yards. Whatever buzz he was generating in early November has vanished, and he's only worth holding onto in deeper formats.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) did not have a catch and was not targeted in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Coming off his critical fumble in last Sunday's loss to the Colts, MVS was MIA on SNF. He did pop up on the injury report with an Achilles issue leading up to the game so perhaps it's as simple as that. Still, it's suspicious timing, and it makes Valdes-Scantling likely bench fodder for Week 13.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) is officially active for the Week 12 game.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Valdes-Scantling will be able to handle his normal workload because of the injury, which makes him a risky option. He could also lose some targets to Allen Lazard and could be benched in fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling likely will be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on his situation over the next few days. He is a risky option since the Packers play on Sunday Night Football, so players can consider benching him they have other options available.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling has been targeted 12 times over the last two games and should continue to have a solid role even with Allen Lazard back in the lineup. He can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling had three catches for 55 yards against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Nov. 22. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling made two big plays: 1) drawing a lengthy pass interference just before halftime that set up a Packers touchdown, and 2) a 47-yard catch to jumpstart their game-tying drive in the final minute. He also made one terrible mistake, however, as he fumbled the ball on the second play of overtime, leading to Indy's game-winning field goal. MVS' ability to work deep gives him decent upside potential from a flex slot most weeks.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught four passes for 149 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling has posted three touchdowns in the last two games and should continue to be the deep threat for the Packers. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or flex option next week against the Indianapolis Colts.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught two passes for 53 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling scored for the first time since the opener and topped 50 yards for the first time since Week 2. Expecting him to produce useful numbers with any type of consistency is a recipe for disappointment.
