  • Packers' Sammy Watkins: Role remains minimal

    Watkins played seven snaps and was not targeted in Sunday's 28-19 victory over the Bears.

    A key block from Watkins sprung fellow wideout Christian Watson's game-clinching 46-yard touchdown run with just under two minutes to play, but he finished without a reception for a third straight game and without a target for the second time is as many weeks. Watkins finished fifth among Packers wideouts in snaps in Week 13, and he could fall one spot further when the Packers next take the field in Week 15, as another receiver -- Romeo Doubs (ankle) should be ready to get back on the field by then.

  • Packers' Sammy Watkins: Limited to four snaps in loss

    Watkins played four snaps and was not targeted in Sunday's 40-33 loss to the Eagles.

    Watkins played at least 20 snaps in all seven of the games he'd appeared in prior to Week 12, but he was nearly eliminated from the game plan Sunday as the Packers chose to use more multi-tight end sets. It will be tough for him to provide any help for fantasy players in his current role, as the Packers still have a bye on the schedule and have more reason to give snaps to younger wideouts like Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs (ankle).

  • Packers' Sammy Watkins: Held without catch in Week 11

    Watkins was targeted twice but did not catch a pass in Thursday's 27-17 loss to the Titans.

    Watkins made a couple plays in the Packers' Week 10 victory over the Cowboys, but he was a non-factor a few days later. Watkins trailed Allen Lazard, Christian Watson and Randall Cobb in snaps Thursday, and as long as those three remain healthy, that will likely turn into a trend.

  • Packers' Sammy Watkins: Gains 47 yards in OT win

    Watkins caught all three of his targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 31-28 win over Dallas.

    Watkins turned in his best performance since Week 2 when he had 93 yards on three receptions. The 2014 first-round pick has struggled to find success with his new club despite Green Bay's desperate need for reliable receivers. Watkins should continue to operate no lower than third on the receiver depth chart while Romeo Doubs (ankle) and Randall Cobb (ankle) are sidelined, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect a whole lot from the veteran against the Titans on Thursday.

  • Packers' Sammy Watkins: No designation for Week 10

    Watkins (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

    Watkins sat out Wednesday's practice and took the field only as a limited capacity in sessions Thursday and Friday, but his lack of a designation heading into the Week 10 matchup suggests that his restrictions were mostly for maintenance purposes. Though he's produced only two receptions despite playing more than three-quarters of the Packers' snaps on offense in both of the past two games, Watkins should continue to see plenty of playing time Sunday while Randall Cobb (ankle) remains on injured reserve and with Romeo Doubs (ankle) facing a 4-to-6-week recovery timeline.

  • Packers' Sammy Watkins: Returns as limited participant

    Watkins (knee) was limited at Thursday's practice.

    One day removed from sitting out due to a knee issue, Watkins was back on the field with a cap on his reps. On Wednesday, coach Matt LaFleur relayed to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that "bumps and bruises" are partly to blame for Watkins' lacking production over the last three games, which followed an IR stint due to a hamstring injury. While Watkins is trending in the right direction, he still may enter the weekend with a designation for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. If he's available to the Packers, Watkins will be part of the solution with rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs in line to miss 4-to-6 weeks due to a high-ankle sprain, along with Allen Lazard (shoulder) -- who was limited in both Week 10 sessions so far -- and Christian Watson, among others.

  • Packers' Sammy Watkins: Absence due to knee injury

    Watkins didn't practice Wednesday due to a knee injury.

    Earlier Wednesday, head coach Matt LaFleur told Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Watkins is dealing with some "bumps and bruises," which in part are to blame for his lack of impact in three games since returning from injured reserve. During that span, he's hauled in just four of 10 targets for 48 yards and no touchdowns, despite ranging between 53 and 83 percent of the offensive plays. With a knee injury in tow, Watkins' status will be one to watch as the week continues, especially with all of Allen Lazard (shoulder, limited participant), Romeo Doubs (ankle, out 4-to-6 weeks) and Christian Watson (concussion protocol, full participant) showing up on the Packers' first Week 10 practice report.
