Packers' Christian Watson (hamstring) on track for season debut Thursday

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions on Thursday night, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Watson is ready to make his season debut, but due to the sensitive nature of a hamstring injury, the Packers will likely remain cautious and install a snap count Thursday night. Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, Dontayvion Wicks, and Luke Musgrave will have fewer targets available with Watson active.

numberFire's models project Watson ($11,500) for 9.5 FanDuel points on the single-game slate Thursday, with a team-high 6.8 targets, 4.0 receptions, and 56.5 receiving yards. The Lions' pass defense is 16th through three weeks, based on our opponent-adjusted NEP model, and they are 10th in FanDuel points allowed per game to opposing wide receivers.
