The Green Bay Packers announced Week 15 inactives and Marques Valdez-Scantling is officially ACTIVE for their matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. Valdez-Scantling was listed as questionable this week due to a back injury. He was limited in practice throughout the week.

Valdes-Scantling ultimately couldn’t escape an injury designation this week, although the three limited practices meant the receiver had a great chance to suit up. This Ravens secondary is severely undermanned, which means big things for the speedy Valdes-Scantling who often makes his money on deep throws. Fantasy managers who have the receiver can start him as a mid-level flex play with a higher ceiling. If you’re already down in a playoff matchup and need someone with upside, Valdes-Scantling could be the answer. With Valdes-Scantling becoming the No. 2 receiver, Allen Lazard likely fades in fantasy formats. Look for Aaron Jones to potentially take a hit in the receiving game as well, although Davante Adams won’t be affected.
