Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 10 vs CAR (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling was held without a catch for the second straight game. His value looks to have been depleted to the point where you can safely drop him in favor of Allen Lazard.
2019 Week 9 vs LAC (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling was held without a catch on two targets in the Packers loss to the Chargers on Sunday. With Rodgers under constant pressure and having no time to throw, this was not a surprising stat line for the young deep threat.
2019 Week 8 vs KC (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for four yards on two targets in the Packers win over the Chiefs. Rodgers threw 33 passes and passed for 305 yards, so it was surprising to see Valdes-Scantling be a complete non-factor, especially with the Chiefs secondary looking like a complete mess covering receivers down the field.
2019 Week 7 vs OAK (3 / 2 / 133 / 1 rec)
Valdes-Scantling made the most of his targets. He had a long bomb catch to open the second half that might have been a score if Aaron Rodgers had put more air under it. He later had a simple out on third down that Gareon Conley whiffed on, allowing Valdes-Scantling to score with Aaron Jones throwing the key block.
2019 Week 6 vs DET (2 / 2 / 48 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught two passes for 48 yards on two targets, while also rushing one time for nine yards. Valdes-Scantling saw less targets than Lazard, Allison, Graham, Williams, Jones and Jake Kumerow. Essentially, he was the lowest receiver on the Packers totem pole this week, which is alarming considering he had played his way into the #2 job this season. Valdes-Scantling is primarily targeted in the deep passing game, so when those targets don't materialize, be it from the defensive scheme or the Packers not getting time for those routes to develop, he is going to suffer and have a whole lot of games with stat lines like this one. Valdes-Scantling did get one target in the deep passing game and was able to convert for a 46 yard reception which set the Packers up in the red zone. With the Packers facing a second and one from their own 39 yard line, Rodgers took the snap out of the shotgun and Valdes-Scantling was able to get a clean release off the line of scrimmage and establish position on the inside of his defender. Rodgers looked for him deep and threw his receiver out in front and to the right sideline. Given where he was positioned, Valdes-Scantling had to adjust to the throw and get back to the sideline, where he made a fantastic over the shoulder catch along the sideline.
2019 Week 5 vs DAL (4 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught one pass for 18 yards on four targets in the Packers win over the Cowboys on Sunday. With Adams sidelined, Valdes-Scantling saw increased attention from the Cowboys secondary and was unable to make much of a difference, aside from an 18 yard catch where Rodgers gets a lot of the credit for a pin-point throw to him along the sideline. In terms of yards, his biggest contribution came on a pass interference penalty that he drew against his defender which resulted in a 40 yard gain for the Packers. Valdes-Scantling has carved out a role as the Packers deep threat, but without Adams drawing coverage away from him, he will have a hard time catching defenses by surprise down the field.
2019 Week 4 vs PHI (7 / 3 / 47 / 0 rec)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three passes for 47 yards on seven targets in the Packers loss to the Eagles. Valdes-Scalding failed to make much of an impact despite the fact that Rodgers threw the ball 53 times and the Eagles secondary was at less than full strength. Valdes-Scantling was called for offensive pass interference, a play that forced the Packers into a first and 20 situation from their own 14 yard line. It was also Valdes-Scantling who had the ball bounce off his hands and get intercepted on the Packers last offensive play of the game, where they were driving to tie the game up. Was it a catchable ball? Of course, Rodgers threw it. However, Valdes-Scantling is not wholly to blame, as the play-call was a slant where he and the outside receiver cross paths. The outside receiver--instead of crossing directly in front of Valdes-Scantling--crossed directly in his path, forcing him to cut back and then up the field into his slant pattern.
2019 Week 3 vs DEN (10 / 6 / 99 / 1 rec)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling six passes for 99 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in the Packers win over the Broncos on Sunday. Valdes-Scantling led the Packers in catches, yards, touchdowns and targets, quite a feat for the second year receiver, as it is clear he has earned Rodgers trust with each passing week. Valdes-Scantling has become the Packers primary deep threat, which gives him a high weekly ceiling with Rodgers throwing him the ball, but the Packers offense has also become much more conservative, so his floor is low as well. Valdes-Scantling's touchdown catch came with the Packers facing second and six from the Broncos 40 yard line, Rodgers took the snap out of shotgun. Valdes-Scantling was lined up in the left inside-slot position and despite the Broncos jumping offside before the snap, he continued to run a deep post pattern to the middle of the field. Rodgers threw a great pass, out and in front of Valdes-Scantling, but the receiver also made a nice catch, as the ball was swirling a little in the wind which forced him to contort his body to catch the ball at the end. It was the type of play that Valdes-Scantling continues to make down the field for the Packers, and he has become an indispensable part of the offense and has a clear lock on the #2 job going forward.
2019 Week 2 vs MIN (6 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
Valdes-Scantling had some downfield targets broken up and gave back yards on a wide receiver screen so his box score was underwhelming. He is still getting downfield targets and could be a better play in a more wide open high scoring game script.
2019 Week 1 vs CHI (6 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught four passes for 52 yards on six targets, while also rushing one time for zero yards. Valdes-Scantling led the Packers in both receptions and yards and if you had to award an offensive MVP in this game, he would most certainly be it. His total statistics were not anything to write home about, but Valdes-Scantling made what would go down as the play of the night, a 47 yard reception that set up the Packers only touchdown of the game, and coincidently the only score they would need to beat the Bears. With the Packers trailing 3-0 to start the 2nd quarter and facing a first and 10 from their own 26 yard line, Rodgers took the snap under center and faked the handoff to Aaron Jones before also faking a reverse to Davante Adams. Rodgers then set his feet and unleashed a frozen rope down the center of the field to Valdes-Scantling who had two steps on his man. The throw was just slightly behind Valdes-Scantling, but he made a very nice adjustment and came back to the ball, securing the 47 yard catch, which was the longest play of the day by a mile for a both teams. It was this type of catch that has set up Valdes-Scantling to be a major contributor for the Packers this year, as well as Rodgers preferred deep threat.
