Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson could be used in a variety of ways outside of simply being a boundary WR, in the opinion of Zack Kruse of Packers Wire. ''Watson is also versatile. He played snaps at running back for NDSU, and he was an All-American kick returner. In LaFleur's offense, Watson could be used as a perimeter deep threat, gadget weapon or even in the backfield,'' said Kruse.
Huddle Up: An elite athlete, Watson has the potential to do more than just catch passes. In a barren WR room following the Davante Adams trade, the opportunity for playing time will be there for the 6-foot-4 Watson. He still has work to do when it comes to developing his skills as a route runner, but if the Packers are intent on getting him the ball in other ways as well, it could be a nice boost to his fantasy value. Given the vacancy of targets in Green Bay and his elite athleticism, Watson will be one to watch as a WR4/5 sleeper come draft season once we get more information about his true role.

North Dakota State WR Christian Watson was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 34th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Packers have lost multiple receivers this offseason, so Watson has a good chance to earn a big role as a rookie. He will be playing with one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver.
