4. Get more out of Christian Watson

A certain baseline of production was expected from second-year wide receiver Christian Watson. Unfortunately, that has not been the case for Green Bay's talented pass catcher.

The 2022 second-rounder out of North Dakota State has just 12 receptions for 213 yards and one touchdown. Waston's reception total is sixth on the Packers, while his yardage ranks fourth, and touchdown receptions are tied for third with three others.

Even though his statistical totals are far from impressive, a solid multi-game stretch could see Watson get closer to or overtake the top spot on the Packers. This speaks volumes about his talent, but also how unproductive Green Bay's passing attack has been so far this season, Watson included.

Watson has failed to finish with more than three catches in a game and has surpassed 37 yards just once. This is simply an unacceptable level of production from someone who should be a much larger part of Green Bay's passing attack.

If the Packers can incorporate Watson at an appropriate level, it should point to brighter days in the future for Green Bay's offense. With where they currently sit in the NFC North, this season is about hope and overall growth. Finding some level of stable production through the air would be an encouraging sign for an offense that has not been particularly impressive.
