After three long weeks of speculation about his return only to have him sit out each contest, Watson looks to be on track to make his first on-field appearance of the season. The Packers have been cautious in their approach to getting Watson back in the starting lineup, which should allow him to be as close to 100% on Thursday night as possible. While we have yet to see what the target distribution will look like with Watson in the lineup, there’s reason to be optimistic about his potential right out of the gate considering the high level of play Jordan Love has treated us to through three weeks. His return should pay dividends not only to his fantasy managers, but also the entire Packers offense as a whole – specifically the passing game, which is already off to a great start.
