  Lions | Jared Abbrederis ahead of competition    Thu Jul 20, 10:08 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jared Abbrederis is well ahead of the competition for one of the final receiver spots on the roster because of his route-running ability, according to Justin Rogers of The Detroit News.

Footballguys view: Abbrederis flashed with the Packers but was really inconsistent. Unless he can find a way to change that - while Golden Tate and Marvin Jones falter - we don't expect much from him this season.

  Lions | Jared Abbrederis misses practice    Wed Jun 14, 03:19 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jared Abbrederis (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Wednesday, June 14, because of undisclosed reasons.

Footballguys view: Abbrederis has had a problem staying healthy, especially last year when he was limited to five games for the Packers. He is competing for the no4 WR job with the Lions behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and rookie Kenny Golladay.

  Lions | Jared Abbrederis praised for route running    Sat Jun 3, 08:51 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jared Abbrederis has caught the eye of head coach Jim Caldwell for his ability to run routes. "Really good route runner, very good in terms of his ability to find open areas," Caldwell said. "You complement all those things he can do from an offensive standpoint with his ability to play special teams. He's really doing well, so he's just got to keep progressing."

Footballguys view: Abbrederis was predicted by some beat writers to be a breakout player with the Packers last year. Instead, Abbrederis was slowed by injury and limited to one catch for eight yards and appeared in only five games. The Packers let him go late last year (October 2016) with an injury settlement. Abbrederis is competing for the no4 WR job with the Lions behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and rookie Kenny Golladay.

  Lions | Jared Abbrederis having solid offseason    Fri Jun 2, 08:45 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jared Abbrederis has showed solid route running skills during offseason workouts and has also been able to find open areas in the defense, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. He is expected to compete for the No. 4 receiver job during training camp.

  Lions | Jared Abbrederis part of competition    Sun May 28, 08:16 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jared Abbrederis, WR T.J. Jones and WR Jace Billingsley are all part of a competition for the No. 3 receiver job.

Footballguys view: Don't forget about rookie Kenny Golladay in this competition too. No matter who wins the job, we don't see a ton of fantasy potential coming from the Lions no3 WR spot. Especially with TEs Eric Ebron and Mike Roberts soaking up targets as well as WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.

  Packers | QB happy with Jared Abbrederis    Sun Aug 14, 11:30 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis has been performing well during training camp and has shown good route-running abilities, according to QB Aaron Rodgers. 'He's a guy that has phenomenal preparation. He's always in the right spot, he has incredible body movements when it comes to not telegraphing routes, and he just finds a way to get open all the time. So, he's continued where he left off last year and had a phenomenal camp,' Rodgers said.

Footballguys view: Rodgers has been a fan of Abbrederis for quite some time. The third-year WR has seen the first two years of his pro career set back by injuries. If healthy, Abbrederis has a chance to win the no.3 WR position for the Packers behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.

  Packers | Jared Abbrederis making plays in camp    Sun Jul 31, 05:33 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis has impressed in camp while WR Davante Adams and WR Jeff Janis have been quiet in the early going.

Footballguys view: Abbrederis should be Aaron Rodgers' choice to win snaps at the third wide receiver position because of his precise route-running and timing. The Wisconsin product has to stay healthy to fulfill those wishes, but if he can, he'll be on our early season waiver wire watch list.

  Packers | Jared Abbrederis praised by coach    Thu Jul 14, 12:16 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis managed to grab just nine receptions in the regular season, but he stepped up in the postseason due to injuries. He had six catches in the playoffs. 'I think Jared's had his best offseason,' head coach Mike McCarthy said last month. 'I think his route running is exemplary for a young guy. His ability to recognize coverages, and his time clock, his breaking points, his ability to drop his weight. Just all the specifics and details and techniques of route running, I think he's exceptional.'

Footballguys view: Abbrederis is a guy a lot of Packers fans seem to love but like many receivers on this team not named "Nelson" or "Cobb," Abbrederis is wildly inconsistent and often underwhelming. Aaron Rodgers did want to see more of the kid last season, as he was one of the more reliable route runners on the team at the time, but considering how bad the receivers were, that's a low bar to clear. We wouldn't have Abbrederis on a roster unless it was a very deep one.

  Packers | Jared Abbrederis impressing     Mon Jun 20, 04:36 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis showed exemplary route-running this offseason, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy also praised the receiver's coverage recognition, breaking points and weight loss as high points. 'He plays the position technically and fundamentally at a very high level,' McCarthy added.

Footballguys view: The Packers are looking for a WR3 behind starters Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Abbrederis may be separating himself from the rest of the pack including guys like Ty Montgomery, Davante Adams and Jeff Janis. We'll be watching to see how this competition unfolds in training camp.

  Packers | Davante Adams may not make team    Tue May 3, 03:09 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams' roster spot is not a lock for the 2016 season, in the opinion of Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. WRs Jared Abbrederis, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis and Trevor Davis are also not guaranteed roster spots.

Footballguys view: It's certainly possible as Adams is not a lock for the final roster. Without Jordy Nelson last year, the opportunity was there for Adams to do more and he failed miserably. He ended the season as the 83rd ranked WR in standard scoring fantasy leagues with 50 catches, 483 yards and only one touchdown. Adams will have to prove himself this year as the Packers have a talented group of WRs behind Nelson and Randall Cobb.

  Packers | Jared Abbrederis to see more time?    Mon Dec 21, 08:50 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis deserves more playing time, according to QB Aaron Rodgers. Offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett said Monday, Dec. 21, that Abbrederis is earning that playing time, too.

Footballguys view: Against the Raiders in Week 15, Abbrederis had three catches for 33 yards. On the season, Abbrederis has eight catches for 106 yards. We'll see if the Packers try to get him more involved moving forward.

  Packers | Jared Abbrederis to active roster    Sat Oct 3, 05:06 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis was signed to the active roster Saturday, Oct. 3.

Footballguys view: The Packers are in need of wide receiver help with Davante Adams banged up. Don't start or add Abbrederis, but monitor him for dynasty owners.

  Packers | Players added to practice squad    Mon Sep 7, 05:02 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis, RB John Crockett and TE Justin Perillo were signed to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 7.

Footballguys view: We're watching both Abbrederis and Crockett in deep dynasty leagues. Abbrederis is a fine route runner with the ability to create separation at the stem of the route. Crockett is a good all-purpose back with a strong work ethic.

  Packers | Jared Abbrederis could go Tuesday    Tue Sep 1, 12:10 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis (concussion) could practice Tuesday, Sept. 1, for the first time since suffering a concussion the first day of camp.

Footballguys view: Abbrederis is just trying to hold onto a roster spot, as Davante Adams, Jeff Janis, Ty Montgomery and Myles White all have had better preseasons. Adams and Janis are your best bet for some production due to Jordy Nelson's injury, with Adams looking like the better bet and tracking in rankings as a WR2.

  Packers | Ty Montgomery the WR3?    Tue Aug 25, 08:30 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery will be the slot receiver in practice this week with WR Jeff Janis, WR Myles White, WR Larry Pinkard, WR Ed Williams and WR Jared Abbrederis competing for a spot after him.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Stanford is not what you'd call a polished player, but he's certainly exciting with the ball in his hands. His game is all about gashing defenses after the catch. Montgomery can turn short routes into long gains, and he's hard to get lined up to tackle in the open field because of his agility.

  Packers | Jared Abbredderis back on the field    Fri May 29, 12:38 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis (knee) participated in individual drills but did not do any 11-on-11 drills during the OTA session Thursday, May 31, as he continues to work his way back from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: Abbrederis is a smart receiver who can run a crisp route. He'll get open, and he's got good run-after-the-catch ability. This season, Abbrederis will compete with Jeff Janis and Ty Montgomery to be the team's WR4 behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams.
