Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur talked wide receiver Allen Lazard up at the scouting combine last week. A source that ESPN.com's Matthew Berry trusts also said that Lazard spent Thanksgiving last year with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the two have become very close. Green Bay will surely go out and add some pass-catchers in the draft or free agency, as they got next to nothing from anyone outside of Davante Adams in 2019. But even if they add some bodies, Lazard is a name to remember as a fantasy sleeper this year. The 24-year-old had 35 catches (52 targets) for 477 yards and three touchdowns.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard caught three of four targets for 36 yards in a 37-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Lazard may not have made much noise in the two playoff games but flashed some potential in the regular season, including his first career 100-yard game. Rodgers started to develop a little chemistry with the 6-foot-4 wideout late in the season, as he looked his way 17 times in the last two contests. It would be surprising if Lazard were the number-two receiver for the Packers next year, though it still makes sense for them to bring him back in some capacity. Lazard has some sleeper potential if he's catching passes from Rodgers in 2020.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard (ankle) is currently questionable for the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. There's certainly a risk for injury, considering he re-aggravated the ankle in last week's playoff game. Still, it's hard to ignore the two-game stretch Lazard had to end the season, where he saw 17 targets. That alone makes him worth a gamble, particularly in a must-win game for a Packers team in desperate need of another threat at receiver. Just beware, the matchup isn't ideal. The 49ers allowed only 172 passing yards to the Vikings last week.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard wasn't targeted and had one carry for five yards in a 28-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks. It was the Davante Adams show in this one, at the expense of Green Bay's other receivers. Lazard was on the injury report this week, so perhaps he deserves a mulligan for not producing much. Still, it's discouraging to see him fall back to earth after career-highs in targets in his last two contests. Lazard will have his work cut out for him next week in an NFC Championship game matchup against the stingy 49ers Defense.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard is a sneaky option against the Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. In a room full of underachievers- minus Davante Adams- Lazard has emerged in the last couple weeks as the clear number-two receiver. He played the highest number of snaps of any receiver not named Adams in Weeks 16 and 17. In those two games, Lazard saw a combined 17 targets, as much as he had compiled in the previous five games put together. At six-feet-five and 227 pounds, Lazard has the size to win any jump ball. He should get several chances this weekend against Seattle's questionable secondary. Lazard is a cheap option and could benefit if the Seahawks draw more attention to Adams.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard caught four of eight targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 win over the Detroit Lions. Lazard leaped up to grab a game-tying score in the fourth quarter, using all of his 6-foot-5 frame. The 24-year-old was a large part of the offense again, with eight targets after seeing a career-high nine last week. He has emerged as an underrated DFS play ahead of a first-round bye in the playoffs.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard (ankle) has logged two limited sessions in practice this week. If he's able to play, he should be in the conversation as a flex play against the Detroit Lions, who have the worst pass defense in the league. They've allowed the third-most pass plays of 20 yards or more and the eighth-most plays of 40 yards or more. That's good news for the 24-year-old deep-threat, who is coming off a career-high nine targets against Minnesota. Lazard could be a flex option as well as a cheap option in DFS for Week 17.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard (ankle) and tight end Jimmy Graham (veteran rest) were both limited in Thursday's practice. Lazard has logged back-to-back limited sessions and seems destined to have a questionable tag for Sunday's game. Graham is likely to suit up on Sunday, as this has been his practice routine to keep him fresh for Sundays. Neither are appealing options in season-long leagues, though Lazard could get consideration in some DFS circles if he suits up against a poor Detroit Lions pass defense.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard saw a career-high nine targets and hauled in five of them for 45 yards in a 23-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Lazard picked up three third-down receptions, so he was a reliable target for Aaron Rodgers in a big game. The big-bodied receiver also did a great job blocking on Aaron Jones' first touchdown. These plays should earn Lazard more playing time in Week 17 and beyond, putting him in the too-early, fantasy sleeper conversation for 2020. Lazard will take on a struggling Detroit Lions Defense in Week 17.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard gets a good matchup in Week 16 against the 20th-ranked secondary of the Minnesota Vikings. Lazard broke out for 100 yards and a touchdown against the Giants two weeks ago but has been quiet since. Of all players with at least 30 targets, Lazard ranks ninth in yards per target with 10.4. It speaks volumes about the trust between Aaron Rodgers and the 24-year-old. The veteran QB could look downfield for Lazard a couple times against a suspect secondary, making him a last-ditch option this week. Lazard is a good backup option for owners who get hit by last-minute injuries, considering he plays on Monday night.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard caught two of three targets for 14 yards in a 21-13 win over the Chicago Bears. Lazard has come back down to earth the last two weeks after exploding for 103 yards against the Giants. He can't be counted upon for fantasy when he's averaging 2.7 targets per game in his last four contests
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard caught two of three targets for 19 receiving yards in a 20-15 victory over the Washington Redskins. Lazard fell back down to earth after exploding for a career-high 103 yards against the Giants last week. The rookie fell victim to a bad performance by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, though the Redskins deserve credit for limiting his big-play potential. Lazard can't be trusted unless the matchup is especially juicy, as he's failed to exceed 50 receiving yards in six of eight games this year. Up next is a Week 15 matchup with the Chicago Bears' strong defense.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard will take on the Washington Redskins in Week 14. The rookie had a career-high 103 receiving yards against the Giants last week. Lazard has out-snapped fellow receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling in three consecutive games. Unfortunately, that role hasn't lent a ton of volume, as his season-high for targets is six. Still, Aaron Rodgers seems to trust him- and he doesn't throw trust around lightly. It's worth noting that each of his three catches from last week went for 20-plus yards, giving him a boom-or-bust outlook. It's best to avoid Lazard this week.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard caught all three targets for 103 yards and a score in a 31-13 win over the New York Giants. Lazard was wide open on his 37-yard touchdown catch, likely the result of a busted coverage by the Giants. Still, the 23-year-old was trending in the right direction, as he had out-paced fellow receiver Marquez-Valdes-Scantling in snaps over the last two weeks. Lazard may have just brought himself back into fantasy relevance on a team in need of a secondary receiver behind star Davante Adams. The rookie could be in the flex conversation in Week 14 against a Washington Redskins Defense that just allowed two receivers to exceed 50 yards and score a touchdown.
Green Bay Packers wide receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard are both risky options against the New York Giants in Week 13. Lazard seems to have snatched away Valdes-Scantling's snaps the last couple of weeks, so he's probably the one to trust of these two. Still, neither of these two have exceeded 50 receiving yards in their last four games. Even in a matchup against a Giants Defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers, Valdes-Scantling and Lazard are both risky WR4 options.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard saw a season-high six targets against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. He only caught two of them for 27 yards. Still, Lazard might be quietly staking claim to the Packers' number-two wide receiver role. Marquez Valdes-Scantling has gone missing the last two weeks. Geronimo Allison hasn't eclipsed 50 receiving yards or caught a touchdown since Week 4. Meanwhile, Lazard has seen at least four targets in every game and has at least 40 receiving yards in four of five games. Lazard and the Packers get a bye in Week 11 before their Week 12 matchup with the tough San Francisco 49ers.
Green Bay Packers wide receivers Geronimo Allison and Allen Lazard are not recommended fantasy options in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers. Allison has recorded just 20 catches on 34 targets for 205 yards and two touchdowns in nine games. He's only been fantasy-relevant when he's caught a touchdown. In five games without Davante Adams (toe), Lazard posted 15 catches on 18 targets for 193 yards and a touchdown. If Adams or Marquez Valdes-Scantling can't play-both of these guys would have more opportunities. Still, their production and volume make them emergency flex options at best, especially against Carolina's ninth-ranked pass defense.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard caught three of his four targets for 44 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers. The 23-year-old stepped up in the absence of star wideout Davante Adams with 12 catches on 14 targets for 149 yards and a touchdown. It was nice to see Lazard involved even with Adams back in the fold. He's now out-targeted fellow receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison the past two weeks. It remains to be seen if Lazard will keep this up or if he'll return to a reserve role. His role could be worth monitoring though it's hard to recommend any receiver in this offense besides Adams.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard had an unspectacular outing in the victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Lazard finished the game with five receptions for 42 yards, which has been his average involvement in games in the absence of Davante Adams. Lazard has been given slightly more usage than Jake Kumerow, behind the Packers starting receiving duo of Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison. Coming into Week 9 his outlook is uncertain, regardless of Adams' availability. The Los Angeles Chargers have been an effective unit against receiving corps, but have been susceptible to running backs. Given that weakness, the Packers are likely to return to the effective ground game it started the season with.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard has value in deeper leagues this week against the Kansas City Chiefs due to injured receivers on the team. Davante Adams(toe) has missed the past two matchups and is doubtful for this one, vacating targets for the offense. Lazard played the most snaps among receivers last week and has performed well with the targets he has been given in Adams' absence. Lazard has caught seven of his nine targets for 107 yards and a touchdown, but more crucially seems to have the trust of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. If Adams misses the game and Marquez Valdes-Scantling continues to struggle with injury, Lazard has WR4/5 appeal.
