After yet another one-possession defeat, the Green Bay Packers look to rebound at Lambeau Field against the Los Angeles Chargers. In order to do that, they will need significant contributions from their young receiving corps, including Romeo Doubs.

Fantasy Football analysis: Packers WR Romeo Doubs

On the surface, Doubs might appear to have the upper hand between him and Christian Watson, the Packers’ other fantasy-relevant Year 2 wideout. Doubs’ six touchdowns exceed all but three receivers in the NFL and he currently leads Green Bay in targets, traditionally positive signs for one’s trajectory.

However, Doubs’ production has largely come due to circumstances that might not sustain moving forward. The Packers have targeted him heavily in the red zone through the first half of the season, but the recent development of tight end Luke Musgrave and wideout Jayden Reed as well as the healthy return of running back Aaron Jones seem likely to eat into those numbers. And if Doubs can’t rely on scoring opportunities, his fantasy value could fall considerably given how infrequently he creates separation from defenders.

Start or sit in Week 11 PPR leagues?

Start. Doubs might have built his fantasy value on a shaky foundation, but the Packers’ other wideouts haven’t fully taken over his perch. Reed has blown up in recent weeks but needs to prove he can sustain that progress, and the same applies to Musgrave. Love might not throw as much near the goal line now that Jones has returned to a full workload, but Doubs still probably gets the first look there. In leagues with 12 or more teams, Doubs can start.

Start or sit in Week 11 standard leagues?

Start. If Doubs gets his red-zone targets, his value doesn’t take a huge hit in standard formats. Fantasy leagues with 12 or more teams can justify giving him a start.
