2. Christian Watson

We haven't seen Christian Watson yet this season due to a hamstring injury. He missed the opening two games and is questionable for Sunday's contest with the New Orleans Saints. The Packers are smartly being cautious with their star wide receiver. It's a long season.

The Packers are averaging 31 points per game, the second-best record in the NFL. They have achieved this without Watson for two games, Aaron Jones for one game, and Romeo Doubs not at 100 percent due to a hamstring issue.

Watson showed breakout potential when healthy last year, scoring eight total touchdowns in as many games to finish the regular season. Defenses had no answer for his game-changing speed, size, and athleticism. He can get even better in year two.

Love has looked great leading the Packers offense through two weeks. Imagine the difference Watson will make. He has the speed to burn defenders deep, and the threat of that will scare defensive coordinators, creating opportunities for Luke Musgrave and Jayden Reed underneath.

Watson's return will have a huge impact on Green Bay's offense, not just for the contributions he can make with the ball in his hands, but also the space he will create just by being on the field.
