2. Should the Packers bench Christian Watson?

Take away preseason expectations, where they were drafted, or upside. If you had to name the Packers' top three wide receivers this season, they would be (in no particular order) Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, and Dontayvion Wicks.

Doubs has Love's trust. Five of Love's 12 touchdown passes have gone his way. Reed continues to deliver. He is Green Bay's leading receiver, with 23 catches for 333 yards and three touchdowns this season. Wicks' smooth route-running and separation ability is quickly earning him more opportunities.

Watson has struggled to make an impact. In five games, the second-year receiver has only 12 catches for 213 yards and a touchdown, including a 77-yard reception. Besides that big play against the Las Vegas Raiders, Watson has 11 receptions for 136 yards and a score. He has struggled with drops, as well as winning contested catches.

The Packers won't give up on Watson. Nor should they. In the second half of last season, we saw the impact he can make. Packers fans have also seen star receivers struggle in year two; Davante Adams is the perfect example.

Based on performances this season, it's also hard to deny that Green Bay's offense is worse with Watson on the field over Doubs, Reed, or Wicks. Should those three take on the majority of the snaps until Watson cleans up the mistakes and builds chemistry with Jordan Love?
