Packers waived WR Jared Abbrederis with an injury settlement.

Abbrederis was sent to I.R. three days ago with a thigh issue. Always just south of fantasy value, Abbrederis will hunt for work as a special teamer. His Dynasty days are through.

Packers placed WR Jared Abbrederis on injured reserve with a bruised thigh.

Always on the fringes of relevance in Dynasty leagues, Abbrederis had one catch in five games this season. It sounds like he'll eventually be cut loose with an injury settlement. It's probably never going to happen for Abbrederis in fantasy.

Packers WR Jared Abbrederis caught 3-of-3 targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Friday night's third preseason game.

Abbrederis played behind Davante Adams, but Adams dropped a deep ball from Joe Callahan while Abbrederis made the most of his opportunities. The drawback with Abbrederis is that he is more of an inside-the-numbers receiver while Adams is theoretically a perimeter presence. The Packers' offense will be more limited if Abbrederis is the No. 3 receiver. It may still be the best option, however, because Abbrederis is more reliable and efficient.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky predicts third-year WR Jared Abbrederis will be Green Bay's "breakout" player this season.

Abbrederis is listed as Randall Cobb's direct backup on the Packers' latest unofficial depth chart, suggesting he's no deeper than the No. 4 receiver. According to Demovsky, Abbrederis has enjoyed a "strong showing" at training camp and "continues to move up the depth chart." With Jeff Janis' abysmal camp and broken hand, Abbrederis is competing with Davante Adams for No. 3 duties. Abbrederis is a smooth route runner who can play both inside and outside.

Jared Abbrederis is listed with the second-team offense on the Packers' initial depth chart.

He's ahead of both Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis. It's still only the opening days of camp, but it bodes well for Abbrederis' 53-man roster odds.

Packers.com's Wes Hodkiewicz said it is not "out of the realm of possibilities" for Green Bay to keep seven receivers on the final roster.

Green Bay only kept five receivers last season, but they also kept three quarterbacks and two fullbacks. With those spots expected to be trimmed to two and one respectively, the Packers will have some room to keep an extra receiver or two. Green Bay deciding to keep a few extra bodies at receiver would be great news for Jared Abbrederis, Ty Montgomery, and fifth-round rookie Trevor Davis.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said WR Jared Abbrederis had "his best offseason."

"I think his route running is exemplary for a young guy," McCarthy continued. "Just all the specifics and details and techniques of route running, I think he's exceptional." Abbrederis played sparingly during the regular season, but he was thrust into a bigger role when injuries struck in the playoffs, recording four catches for 55 yards in the Divisional Round. While he is a smooth route runner, he has struggled to stay healthy and has a glut of talented receivers ahead of him on the depth chart. Abbrederis will need a strong camp to hold his roster spot.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky left WR Jared Abbrederis off his 53-man roster projection.

The Packers are deep at receiver, meaning someone with talent will end up getting cut. Abbrederis played a big role in the Divisional Round with Davante Adams and Randall Cobb sidelined, but he has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career. Abbrederis likely needs to beat out either Ty Montgomery or rookie Trevor Davis to earn a roster spot.

Jared Abbrederis caught 4-of-12 targets for 55 yards in the Packers' Divisional Round loss to the Cardinals.

Abbrederis was always going to play a bigger role with Davante Adams sidelined, but Randall Cobb's exit with a chest injury in the first quarter and James Jones' inability to beat Patrick Peterson thrust the sophomore into a huge role. Abbrederis coped well with the expanded responsibilities in the first half, converting three third downs on the Packers' two long drives. He did not catch any of his four targets in the second half, however, and took a backseat to Jeff Janis. Abbrederis is a smooth route runner who Aaron Rodgers loves, but it is difficult to see him having a big role in a healthy offense next season. Still, he remains a Dynasty hold.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky confirmed Jared Abbrederis is the "next man up" at receiver with Davante Adams (knee) unlikely to play Saturday night against the Cardinals.

Abbrederis played a season-high 28 snaps in the Wild Card win over the Redskins after Adams went down with a sprained MCL. He caught two balls for 14 yards and a two-point conversion. The 2014 fifth-rounder has Aaron Rodgers on his side with the quarterback praising his route-running and work ethic throughout the season. Abbrederis profiles as a slot receiver. With his insertion into the lineup, it could mean more snaps outside for Randall Cobb.

Packers WR Jared Abbrederis caught 2-of-4 targets for 14 yards in Sunday's Wild Card win over the Redskins.

Abbrederis entered the Packers' three-receiver set when Davante Adams left in the third quarter with a right knee injury. Abbrederis' biggest contribution was a two-point conversion catch, beating Redskins slot CB Will Blackmon to give Green Bay a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter. Should Adams (knee) miss the Divisional Round, Abbrederis could play a major role in Arizona.

Jared Abbrederis caught 1-of-2 targets for five yards in the Packers' Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.

Earlier in the week, Aaron Rodgers called for Abbrederis to play more on offense, but it didn't translate to more playing time. He continues to be the No. 4 receiver behind James Jones, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 08:40:00 PM

Aaron Rodgers called for WR Jared Abbrederis to see more playing time on offense.

Abbrederis played a season-high 27-of-76 snaps Week 15 against the Raiders and caught all three of his targets for 33 yards. On a per-target basis, Abbrederis and James Jones were easily the Packers' two-best receivers on Sunday. Davante Adams continues to disappoint after managing four yards per target on eight looks in Oakland. Abbrederis has already passed Jeff Janis for No. 4 receiver duties, and Adams may be his next victim heading into the playoffs.

Jared Abbrederis was held without a catch vs. the Cowboys.

Abbrederis supposedly replaced Davante Adams in the lineup at some point late in the first half, but drew only one target. With Ty Montgomery (ankle) looking likely to return for Week 15, Abbrederis will remain irrelevant for fantasy purposes.
