Finds paydirt in finale

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-22

Melton was targeted once and caught one pass for 19 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-21 loss to the 49ers.

Melton did not get many opportunities in Saturday's contest, but he made a couple big plays early in the third quarter, drawing a 41-yard pass interference penalty on the play right before he found paydirt. Melton was mainly an afterthought until Week 16, but in the five games the Packers played from that point onward he racked up 17 receptions for 237 yards and two scores. It will be tough for Melton to make a major move up the depth chart in 2024 with all four wideouts ahead of him still under contract, but if Green Bay sticks with the same composition in the receiver room, he will head into training camp no worse than the fifth option at his position.

Back in complementary role

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

Melton was targeted twice and caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's 48-32 victory over the Cowboys.

Melton was busy late in the regular season, but with the four receivers ahead of him on the depth chart all suiting up Sunday for the first time since Week 13, he was back in a complementary role. He did play 22 of a possible 56 snaps, which was just one fewer than Christian Watson, who finished fourth among Packers wideouts in snaps. Melton could be involved to some degree in Green Bay's divisional-round matchup with the 49ers, but if Watson's snap count picks up it could come at Melton's expense.

Another productive appearance

Melton had five receptions for 62 yards and two carries for 14 yards in Sunday's 17-9 victory over the Bears.

Melton did not start Sunday's contest, but he wound up leading Packers wideouts with 45 snaps and tying for the team lead in targets. He made a major mark late in the campaign, tallying 22 targets, 15 receptions, 211 receiving yards, a receiving touchdown, three carries and 21 rushing yards over the final three weeks of the regular season. His prospects continue to hinge on the availability of those above him on the depth chart, but he has proven he can be relied upon when called on.

Signed to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-01

The Packers signed Melton from their practice squad to their active roster Monday.

Melton had a breakout performance in Sunday's win over Minnesota, nabbing six catches on nine targets for 105 yards and a touchdown. It was his second straight productive week, as the wideout caught four of six targets for 44 yards and added a seven-yard rush Week 16 against Carolina. Melton stepped into the No. 2 receiver role in the second half Sunday after Jayden Reed exited due to a chest injury, and the former could again play a major role Week 18 versus Chicago if Reed is unable to return for the critical matchup that could determine whether the Packers qualify for the postseason. Green Bay has other injuries among its wideout corps as well, as Christian Watson has missed four straight contests due to a strained right hamstring and Dontayvion Wicks sat out against the Vikings with chest and ankle injuries.

Tops 100 receiving yards

Melton recorded six receptions on nine targets for 105 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 33-10 win over the Vikings.

Melton was promoted from the practice squad for the second consecutive game and had the chance to produce with both Christian Watson (hamstring) and Dontayvion Wicks (chest) sidelined. After missing a chance for a wide-open score on a fourth-down attempt early in the second quarter, Melton got on the same page with Jordan Love as he caught a nine-yard score late in the third quarter and then delivered three catches for 56 yards in the final quarter. As a result, he turned in the first 100-yard performance by a receiver for the Packers this season. With Jayden Reed (chest) also suffering an injury in the middle of Sunday's victory, Melton could have another chance to produce in Week 18 against the Bears.

Back with active roster

The Packers elevated Melton to their active roster Saturday.

The 24-year-old wideout made the most of his opportunities in Week 16 after getting elevated to the Packers' active roster, catching four of his six targets for 44 yards. Green Bay has a chance to be without both Christian Watson (hamstring) and Dontayvion Wicks (chest/ankle) in Week 17, meaning Melton could very well see lots of snaps in the team's wide receiver room for the second consecutive game.

Reverts to Packers' practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-26

Melton reverted to Green Bay's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Melton played 25 of 66 offensive snaps during Sunday's win over the Panthers with both Christian Watson (hamstring) and Jayden Reed (toe/chest) sidelined, securing four of six targets for 44 yards. He also rushed once for seven yards. It's quite possible Melton is elevated from the practice squad again Week 17 at Minnesota, if one or both of Watson/Reed remain sidelined.

Makes mark in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-25

Melton had four receptions for 44 yards and one carry for seven yards in Sunday's 33-30 victory over the Panthers.

Melton was elevated to the active roster in Week 16 with both Christian Watson (hamstring) and Jayden Reed (toe/chest) unavailable, and with another receiver -- Dontayvion Wicks -- exiting the game with a chest injury, Melton wound up having his most productive day as a professional. Melton was returned to the practice squad following Sunday's contest, but with now three Packers wideouts working back from injury he could suit up again in Week 17.

Joins active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-23

The Packers elevated Melton to their active roster Saturday.

The second-year pro's elevation is likely a sign that Green Bay is preparing to be without its top wideout in Chirstian Watson (hamstring) for the third consecutive week. Melton was able to haul in one of his two targets for seven yards in the team's Week 16 loss, and he'll look to add depth to the Packers' wide receiver room Sunday.
