2024 Fantasy Outlook
After spending nearly a full year on Green Bay's practice squad, Melton finally got a chance to show what he could do last December. He certainly made the most of the opportunity, racking up 100 yards and a score Week 17 and finding pay dirt again in the divisional round of the playoffs. Just 25 years old and blessed with 4.34 speed, there's reason to be excited about Melton's prospects. However, Green Bay has four other promising receivers, and he will have a tough time surpassing any of them on the depth chart. He's the favorite for the fifth spot, though, as Green Bay's receiver room looks almost exactly like it did when the 2023 season came to an end. Read Past Outlooks

Making case for role again
WRGreen Bay Packers
June 10, 2024
Coach Matt LaFleur recently praised Melton's speed, run-blocking, consistency and work ethic, Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal reports.
ANALYSIS
LaFleur referred to Melton's speed as an "elite trait" and said it was a "great story" to see the 2022 seventh-round pick go from Seattle's practice squad to Green Bay's practice squad to topping 100 yards in a crucial Week 17 win last season. Melton was back down to fifth on the depth chart for the playoffs with Green Bay's top four WRs all healthy, but it's telling that the team still gave him some snaps on offense (39 in two playoff games, including a 19-yard TD catch) when there was so much on the line and injuries didn't force things. His combination of 4.34 speed and toughness/discipline seems to have won LaFleur over, and Melton's popularity among Packers fans will only continue growing after his recent revelation that he can't stop eating cheese curds even though they make his stomach hurt.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Melton is an interesting prospect coming out of Rutgers. Posting 1,256 receiving yards over his final two seasons in college isn't that interesting, but the team passed for just 4,027 yards in that span, meaning Melton was often the focal point of the Scarlet Knights' putrid offense. Then, he ran a 4.34 40-yard dash and added a 38-inch vertical at the combine to paint a favorable athletic profile. He'll need to beat out Dee Eskridge and Freddie Swain to capture the No. 3 wideout role, a job that doesn't come with many perks when sitting behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
