Speaking Thursday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy called Jeff Janis a "core player on special teams."
FYI Davis Mattek and Matt Kelley. McCarthy did add that Janis "does some things exceptionally well as a receiver," but Janis' ship seems to have sailed on offense. 'Tis a pity for Dynasty league early adopters. We will always have the 2015-16 NFC Divisional Round.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette's Ryan Wood believes it's "unlikely" Jeff Janis will ever develop "significantly more as a receiver" in Green Bay.
The fantasy community has long been enamored with Janis, but entering his fourth season, it's probably time to give up the ghost. Janis had a monster playoff game in Arizona a couple years ago but has otherwise managed a career 15-188-1 line in the regular season and is bringing up the rear of the Packers' depth chart heading into camp. Geronimo Allison is the favorite for No. 4 duties. Janis turned 26 last month and is in the final year of his contract.

Jeff Janis was held without a catch on one target in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.
Even with the Packers banged up at receiver down the stretch, Janis could not carve out a role on offense. The Packers view him as a special teams only player. Janis has theoretical big-play ability, but going on 26, he's probably never going to rise above folk hero status in fantasy football.
