The 2022 NFL rookie draft class was loaded with talent and over the past few weeks we've seen big time performances from the likes of Chris Olave, Drake London, Garrett Wilson and Jahan Dotson. We've also seen sparks of life from Treylon Burks and hopefully soon Jameson Williams will also be shining for our fantasy football rosters. However,  one name that was less heralded coming out the drat but saw his name and fantasy value pickup value over the preseason was that of Packers fourth round pick Romeo Doubs. With injuries to Allen Lazard and fellow rookie Christian Watson we got to see Doubs stand out during training camp and the preseason. In Week 3 Doubs had himself a breakout game against the Buccaneers but does that make him a priority fantasy football week 4 pickup? Let's dive in and take a look at this Packers passing offense.


Is Romeo Doubs Worth A Fantasy Football Week4 Pickup?

While Doub's Week 3 performance of eight catches on eight targets for 73 yards and a score was his best game of the season, he has been on the field for the Packers in each of the three weeks. In Week 1 he played 57% of the team's offensive snaps and finished with four catches on five targets for 37 yards It's worth noting that Allen Lazard was not active for this game. In Week 2, with Allen Lazard active along with Christian Watson, he played just 37% of the offensive snaps and finished with two catches on three targets for 27 yards.  In Week 3 with Lazard active but Watson inactive we saw Doubs play 89% of the team's offensive snaps. So, the question we need to ask ourselves here is whether or not, when the Packers WR group is fully healthy, will Doubs get a high snap share? To this point his lowest snap share has been when both Lazard and Watson were on the field. Now, in Week 2, Doubs still had a higher snap share than Watson but only 37% to 33% was the margin. Since returning to the lineup Allen Lazard has played 88% and 90% of the team's offensive snaps. It's also worth mentioning that in Week 1 and Week 2 we saw Sammy Watkins with a snap share of 67% and 65%. Watkins has since landed on the IR. The absence of both Watson and Watkins likely caused Doubs to see nearly 90% of the team's offensive snaps. If this can continue then he is a slam dunk waiver wire pickup given the fact that Aaron Rodgers is the QB. When it comes to whether you should be adding Doubs off the waiver wire this week, the answer is a clear yes. There is still a good chance that when Watson comes back, because Sammy Watkins is out, that both receivers get a boost in playing time and snap share and to this point, Doubs has shown the better chemistry with Rodgers due to all the time Watson has missed this season.
