RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Even with their receiving corps in shambles, the Packers refused to target the big, fast, athletic Janis at least until the playoffs. In an overtime loss in the divisional round, Janis caught seven of 11 targets for 145 yards and two touchdowns, most of which came on two Hail Mary's. At 6-3, 219, with 4.42 40 speed, Janis is a physical freak, but he's raw as a route runner and never faced big-time competition in college. With Jordy Nelson back, Janis' skillset isn't as desperately needed as it was last year, but after his performance in the playoffs, there's a chance the team will give him an extended look. At best he'd be the No. 3 option after Nelson and Randall Cobb, and tight ends Jared Cook and Richard Rodgers will be in the mix as well.

2015

Janis played at a small school in college and lasted until the seventh round of last year's draft, but that did not stop him from spending the entire season on the Packers' roster. The team is a big fan of his athleticism, and though he suited up for just three games as a rookie, he showed enough to remain in the conversation moving forward. Any Packers receiver outside of their Big 3 will struggle to make a fantasy impact this season, but a strong preseason could help Janis open the season fourth on the wide receiver depth chart.

2014

There may have been no better landing spot for a big, athletic small-school receiver than Green Bay, as Janis will be given all the time he needs to learn the ropes under the tutelage of Jordy Nelson and Aaron Rodgers. Don't look for an immediate impact, but he could become a force for the Packers a year or two down the road.
