Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 17 vs DET (8 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three passes for 43 yards on eight targets, leading the Packers in all three categories in their loss to the Lions on Sunday. It was a very slow day for the Packers offense, and it was a shame for Valdes-Scantling that Rodgers had to leave the game with an injury in the first quarter, as without Adams on the field, he had a real good chance of doing some damage against a porous Lions secondary. Still, Valdes-Scantling was able to come in his rookie season and put up respectable stats on an offense that is pining for a legitimate number two target behind Adams next season. Valdes-Scantling will battle fellow rookie Equanimeous St. Brown, as both displayed a level of playmaking down the field that should give the Packers some added versatility.

2018 Week 16 vs NYJ (9 / 5 / 75 / 0 rec)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for 12 yards on two targets in Sunday's loss to the Bears. Valdes-Scalding has become an afterthought in the Packers offense after putting together a nice string of games in the middle of the season. To Valdes-Scantling's credit, he was wide open streaking down the field in the fourth quarter, and Rodgers just made a terrible throw that cost Valdes-Scantling a 76 yard touchdown. It was the type of play that the two had hooked up on several times this year, and it would have made both fantasy relevant players on a down Sunday. With the exception of that play though, Valdes-Scantling did not see another target besides his 12 yard catch, and has now started splitting the #3 job with St. Brown (three targets) and Jake Kumerow (two targets).

2018 Week 15 vs CHI (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Valdes-Scalding has become an afterthought in the Packers offense after putting together a nice string of games in the middle of the season. To Valdes-Scantling's credit, he was wide open streaking down the field in the fourth quarter, and Rodgers just made a terrible throw that cost Valdes-Scantling a 76 yard touchdown.

2018 Week 14 vs ATL (2 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught two passes on two targets for 19 yards in the Packers win over the Falcons on Sunday. This marked the fourth straight game that Valdes-Scantling has failed to reach 20 yards receiving, and he has only six catches over that span after averaging four catches and 72 receiving yards in the five games preceding this stretch. Randall Cobb got the start in place of Valdes-Scantling and turned in his best game since week 1, so it is safe to assume that Cobb will be the Packers #2 receiver for as long as he is healthy going forward. The Packers offense is not capable of sustaining more than two receivers per week, and with Aaron Jones and Jimmy Graham in the mix as well, it looks as though Valdes-Scantling will be seeing limited targets for the rest of the season.

2018 Week 13 vs ARI (7 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec, 2 / 29 / 0 rush)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught two passes on seven targets for 19 yards, but managed to gain 29 yards on two carries, which nearly made him the leading rusher for the Packers on the day. Valdes-Scantling saw the third most targets on the day for the Packers, but was unable to make much of a difference as a receiver. His big play of the day came on a play-action reverse with the Packers facing a first and 10 at their own 20 yard line. Rodgers took the snap under center, faked the handoff to Jones and then pitched the ball to Valdes-Scantling who was coming across the field from the left outside hash mark. Scantling was able to find a nice crease and cut inside his blockers, accelerating up the field and reaching the second level of the Cardinals secondary. Unfortunately for him, he lost his footing, tripping over his own feet, which was brutal because there were no Cardinals defenders in front of him and had he managed to stay upright, this most likely would have gone for an 80 yard touchdown run.

2018 Week 12 vs MIN (2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for three yards against the Vikings on Sunday Night Football. Valdes-Scalding had been a big contributor over the first ten games of the season, but he has since faded the last several weeks, even with Randall Cobb and Geranimo Allison unable to play. Scalding was only targeted twice on the night, while fellow rookie Equanimeous St. Brown caught three passes for 53 yards on five targets.

2018 Week 11 vs SEA (3 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for eight yards on three targets against the Seahawks on Thursday night. Valdes-Scantling was not as involved in the offense as he has been most of the season, and that was a combination of Adams balling out, and Jones having mismatches against the Seahawks linebackers for most of the night. Going forward, Valdes-Scantling projects to be an important part of the Packers offense, and continues to have #3 wide receiver status as we enter the stretch run of the Packers playoff hopes.

2018 Week 10 vs MIA (7 / 6 / 44 / 0 rec)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught six passes for 44 yards on seven targets against the Dolphins on Sunday. The seven targets tied Adams for the team lead, and it now looks as though the rookie has solidified himself as the Packers #2 starting wide receiver. All of Valdes-Scantling's targets came on short passes, as he was unable to break the big play that we have seen him make the last several weeks. With that said, it was encouraging to see him get seven targets on a day when the passing game took a backset to Jones.

2018 Week 9 vs NE (6 / 3 / 101 / 0 rec)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three passes on six targets for 101 yards against the Patriots on Sunday night. On a night where the Packers had very few plays over 15 yards, Valdes-Scantling stood out with all three of his catches going for over 24 yards. Valdes-Scantling's first catch came at the beginning of the third quarter on a third and six from the Packers own 28 yard line. He was lined up out wide on the right side of the formation and ran a deep post route, for which he dusted his defender down the field with his long strides. Rodgers threw a perfect ball to him in stride and Valdes-Scantling was just caught from behind for a 51 yard gain that nearly went for a touchdown. The play set up the Packers second touchdown from Rodgers to Graham. Valdes-Scantling's next two catches were just a combination of great throws from Rodgers, and great catches from Valdes-Scantling. The first came on a straight go-route down the right sideline where Rodgers gave him a chance to make a big play on a jump ball. Valdes-Scantling went up and high pointed the ball way above his defender for a 26 yard gain. His last catch came on a crossing route where Rodgers was on the run and threw a pass that frankly, I'm not sure anyone else in the NFL could make. He hit Valdes-Scantling perfectly in stride, but you also have to give credit to the rookie for making the catch, running to his right and extending his hands out way in front of him to make the catch on the run. It is those type of catches that will make Valdes-Scantling a big part of this offense moving forward.

2018 Week 8 vs LAR (5 / 2 / 45 / 1 rec)

Valdes-Scantling led the WR2/WR3 committee in snaps and in production, thanks to beating Troy Hill in man coverage when the Rams blitzed in the fourth quarter for a long score. His arrow is still pointing up long term, and possibly even in the short term if he keeps making plays like this one.

2018 Week 6 vs SF (6 / 3 / 103 / 0 rec)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three passes on six targets for 103 yards against 49ers on Monday night. Valdes-Scantling didn't wait long to make his impact, catching a 60 yard pass on the opening drive that set up the Packers for a touchdown. Rodgers lined up in shotgun and play action faked before rolling out to his left side. The 49ers bit on the fake and blew the coverage which allowed Valdes-Scantling to get behind the secondary and take off down the left sideline for a 60 yard gain. Valdes-Scantling backed that up with what was perhaps the catch of the night. With Rodgers being chased out of the pocket to his right, Valdes-Scantling cut off his short crossing route and took off down the right sideline. Rodgers threw the ball behind Valdes-Scantling, but he was able to reach back and secure the catch despite his defender being draped all over him. This was another very productive night for Valdes-Scantling, and he has made his case to stay in the lineup when Randall Cobb and Geranimo Allison are healthy and make their return.

2018 Week 5 vs DET (10 / 7 / 68 / 1 rec)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught seven passes for 68 yards and one touchdown in his starting debut for the Packers Sunday. With Cobb and Allison out, Valdes-Scantling moved to the #2 receiver spot and performed about as well as you could hope for a rookie in his first start. Valdes-Scantling's touchdown came on a routine route from the Lions three yard line, where Rodgers play-action faked a hand off and rolled to his left. Marques-Scantling set up his route very well and broke to the left side of the end zone as Rodgers threw him a wide-open touchdown pass. It was the first touchdown of his career. Valdes-Scantling nearly had the second touchdown of his career in this game as well, but after being called a touchdown on the field, the play was overturned and ruled that he had gone down at about yard line. Valdes-Scantling did have two rookie moments though. The first was where he ran the wrong route and Rodgers was visibly upset as the play nearly went for an interception. The second came with Rodgers escaping out of the pocket, and Valdes-Scantling did not come back to the ball quick enough for Rodgers which resulted in a sack. Overall though, it was an encouraging day for the rookie wide receiver.
