Christian Watson (hamstring) not expected to play in Packers' Week 2 contest

The Green Bay Packers are not expected to have wide receiver Christian Watson (hamstring) available for their Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

What It Means:

Watson is trending towards missing a second straight game to open the year after suffering a hamstring injury in the final days of training camp. The second-year pro avoided the injured reserve, so it's clear the team is hoping for a full recovery sooner rather than later. It looks like he will now shift his focus towards returning for the team's Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints.

With Watson sidelined, teammates Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed will be expected to continue operating as the team's top pass-catchers. Doubs led the way in Week 1 and carries a $6,300 salary to go with his 9.3-fantasy-point-projection, while Reed ($5,100) is projected to score 8.7 fantasy points against the Falcons' untested secondary.
