Green Bay Packers
NFL Analysis Network

The Green Bay Packers enter the 2024 season as one of the most promising teams in the NFC. The Packers exceeded expectations set prior to the 2023 season, winning a playoff game and making it to the Divisional Round.

Green Bay has a very talented offense led by young quarterback Jordan Love.

Love had a tremendous first year as a starter after taking over for Aaron Rodgers, completing 64.2 percent of his passes for 4,159 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.

The 25-year-old quarterback faced ups and downs throughout his first year as a starter but ultimately led the Packers to a postseason upset over the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card Round.

Alongside Love, Green Bay has a ton of talented young playmakers on offense.

The Packers have a receiving core of Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, Bo Melton, and Dontayvion Wicks. They also have two young, talented tight ends, Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft.

Green Bay brought back AJ Dillon while adding Josh Jacobs and MarShawn Lloyd at running back.

This offense is extremely talented and has the potential to take another leap, as all of their players are young.

With that in mind, let’s dive into which Packers playmaker was named the best value in Fantasy Football for the 2024 season.

Packers’ playmaker with WR1 upside

Bleacher Report has named Christian Watson as the playmaker with great value for the 2024 Fantasy Football season.

Watson has shown flashes of being a high-quality receiver over his first two seasons. However, Watson has faced injuries that have kept him off the field.

In nine games in the 2023 season, Watson had 28 receptions for 422 yards and five touchdowns.

With Love more comfortable in the offense in his second year as the starter and Watson healthy, they could form an elite tandem.

Watson is a speedy deep-threat wideout who has showcased his big-play ability early in his career.

The 25-year-old believes the hamstring injuries could be behind him after finding the underlying cause in a visit to the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

With positive news on Watson’s health, fantasy owners should be more comfortable drafting him. With his ADP being WR44, he could be a steal and break out as an elite receiver in 2024.
