Updated wide receiver depth chart predictions for the Packers.

Back in June, I made my predictions for how the Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver depth chart would look at the start of the regular season.

Since then, Devin Funchess has opted out of the 2020 season, and the Packers have also been back at practice for over a week at training camp.

With that in mind, here are my updated wide receiver depth chart predictions with the season opener less than three weeks away.

Updated Packers WR depth chart predictions

  1. Davante Adams
  2. Allen Lazard
  3. Marquez Valdes-Scantling
  4. Equanimeous St. Brown
  5. Jake Kumerow
  6. Reggie Begelton

With Funchess not playing this season, I don’t see any other situation than Allen Lazard beginning the season as a starter on the outside. Lazard proved himself to be a reliable receiver last year, coming up with some crucial plays when the Packers needed them most. He has a huge opportunity in front of him to establish himself as the number two receiver in this offense.

If there’s one receiver who can overtake Lazard on the depth chart, it’s Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who is reportedly off to a strong start at training camp.

Valdes-Scantling dealt with injuries in the second half of the season and he struggled to make the same impact as he had done early in the year. If he can take the next step, get back to his best, and do it consistently, he’ll become a key part of this offense.

Equanimeous St. Brown’s return will also help the Packers offense. St. Brown didn’t play last season but he did have a year of learning the offense. I’m excited to see how Matt LaFleur uses him this year.

Jake Kumerow offers some more depth at the position and he’s built a good connection with Aaron Rodgers on the field. Another player with a shot at making the 53-man roster is Reggie Begelton, who has been impressive so far at training camp.

Do you agree with the depth chart? If not, what changes would you make?
