Allen Lazard Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The forecast for tonight's Titans-Packers game calls for temperatures in the low 30s with snow and winds of 10-15 mph with gusts of 25-30 mph. Those are less-than-ideal conditions for the passing games, but we're still expecting plenty of points in this one. The game still has a big 53.5-point over/under. We'd stick with all the regulars from these teams in fantasy lineups.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Bears. He injured his Achilles on Thursday and then didn’t practice on Friday — so he seems to be on the doubtful side of questionable. Valdes-Scantling’s absence would make WR Allen Lazard a more intriguing Week 12 fantasy play.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He’s expected to be on a snap count and isn’t a viable Week 11 fantasy play.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is expected to play today vs. the Colts but will be on a "pitch count," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lazard has been sidelined since Week 3. So WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling remains a better fantasy bet than Lazard today -- but we're expecting Lazard to take back #2 WR duties before long.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. HC Matt LaFleur said earlier in the week that Lazard will be limited if he suits up for the 1st time since Week 3. He’s not a bankable fantasy play this week, but his return would add downside to WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) has been activated from IR. He'll presumably return for this weekend's game against the Colts. Lazard has been out since Week 3 but opened the season strong with lines of 4-63-1, 3-45 and 6-146-1. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has strung together a couple of nice outings, but we're still expecting Lazard to re-emerge as Green Bay's #2 WR.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Packers WR Allen Lazard (core) is unlikely to play against the Jaguars this weekend. Lazard is reportedly still dealing with soreness and, as usual, Green Bay will be cautious bringing an injured player back. "Expect him back next week," Rapoport adds. Marquez Valdes-Scantling gets 1 more game as the Packers' #2 WR.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur labeled WR Allen Lazard (core) a game-time decision for Sunday’s tilt with the Jaguars. The team will need to activate Lazard from IR on Saturday if he’s going to play in that one. He shouldn’t be in your Week 10 fantasy plans but is definitely worth stashing on fantasy benches. A healthy Lazard should re-emerge as Green Bay’s #2 WR.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Packers WR Allen Lazard had core-muscle surgery this week and is "out indefinitely." He seems likely to land on IR. We'll keep an eye out for more details on a return timeline. Lazard will likely prove droppable in many redraft leagues, but let's see if more info comes out over the next couple of days. Marquez Valdes-Scantling gains opportunity upside with Lazard out.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Packers WR Allen Lazard might need surgery on his core-muscle injury. Scans are being sent to specialist Dr. William Meyers, who will determine the next course of action. We'll look for another update on the situation, but it at least sounds like fantasy owners should plan on being without Lazard in Week 4.

Packers WR Allen Lazard missed Thursday's practice with a core injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it. Let's see if Lazard is able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Packers WR Devin Funchess has opted out of the 2020 season. He looked like Allen Lazard's biggest competition for the #2 WR job. Now Lazard will just need to hold off Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and Equanimeous St. Brown. We'll see how the depth chart shakes out over the next month, but we're bumping Lazard up the WR rankings. Davante Adams, of course, is set to dominate targets in Green Bay again.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. It's at least an upgrade over the past 3 weeks, when Adams was ruled out on Friday. He seemingly has a shot to return for Week 9. With Adams out last week, the snaps rates for Packers WRs went: Allen Lazard 84%, Jake Kumerow 71%, Geronimo Allison 55%, Marquez Valdes-Scantling 34%. Allison and MVS are healthier now, but it's uncertain if they'll play more on Sunday night. We'd try to avoid this situation in what figures to be a run-leaning game plan for Green Bay.

Packers WR Allen Lazard will "work with the starters" against the Raiders today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison are both active, but neither guy is at 100%. It sounds like Lazard will at least operate as Green Bay's #3 WR -- and might see even more action if MVS and Allison are limited. That said, consider Lazard just a WR4 flier today with the uncertainty surrounding the situation.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. He didn’t practice all week and still has no timetable for return. WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) didn’t practice all week and is listed as doubtful. He won’t play Sunday. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee, ankle) is listed as questionable after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. He has a shot to play this weekend but wouldn’t be at 100%. Jake Kumerow and Allen Lazard are Green Bay’s top 2 healthy WRs. You’re probably best off avoiding this entire situation in Week 7 fantasy lineups.

The Jaguars signed Iowa State WR Allen Lazard as an undrafted free agent. Lazard led the Cyclones in catches (56), yards (808) and TDs (6) as a true sophomore in 2015. He set new career highs with a 69-1,018-10 line in 2016 and posted a 71-941-10 this past season. Lazard is big 6’5, 227-pounder with a 38-inch vertical and an 80th percentile wingspan. But he didn’t always play to that size in college and caught just 39.5% of his contested-catch opportunities last year. Lazard also had a 11% career drop rate and doesn’t offer much after the catch. That said, his combination of size and athleticism (75th percentile SPARQ) makes him worth monitoring. He joins a super crowded Jags WR corps that also added rookie D.J. Chark in the 2nd round of the draft.
