Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson is dealing with a hamstring injury ahead of Week 14 vs. the Giants. Watson sat out of practice on both Thursday and Friday this week. He will likely be listed as out for this week.

Christian Watson injury updates

Friday update: Watson has not practiced in Week 14 ahead of the Packers’ matchup against the Giants. He sustained the hamstring injury in Green Bay’s Week 13 win over the Chiefs.

Fantasy football analysis

Watson has been a top target for Jordan Love in the last few weeks, but if Watson is out, look for Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed to be good fantasy plays. Dontayvion Wicks could also see a higher-than-normal fantasy projection.

Betting analysis

The Packers’ offense is plagued with injuries at the moment, and Watson’s absence could limit Jordan Love’s total passing yards. For another prop bet, keep an eye on Romeo Doubs’ receiving yards over/under this week.
