Matt Schneidman of The Athletic believes WR Allen Lazard will lead the Packers in receptions. Schneidman cites Lazard’s “sturdy hands” and a budding rapport with Aaron Rodgers. The losses of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling took away 224 targets, so there’s no doubting the opportunity in front of Lazard. New arrivals Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and Sammy Watkins don't exactly supply tough target competition. Our current projections agree with Schneidman’s assessment.

Packers WR Allen Lazard has signed his 1-year restricted free-agent tender. If he and the team don't agree to a long-term deal, he'll make just about $4 million this year and then hit free agency next offseason. Lazard has a shot to lead Green Bay in targets this year and is a fine value at his recent WR45 FFPC ADP.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports that Packers WR Allen Lazard is not on hand for this week's mandatory minicamp. Lazard, of course, is not actually required to attend, because he has not signed his restricted free agent tender. That the 2 sides have not yet worked out anything longer term should give you pause about getting too excited over Lazard's outlook. Avoiding early-June minicamp might not ultimately matter for his 2022 role and production. But his absence will give more reps to younger WRs. At WR45 in current Underdog ADP, Lazard remains a fine player to mix into your best-ball drafting. That's almost exactly where he sits in our half-PPR WR rankings. We also prefer Lazard at cost over Christian Watson just about a round later. Consider mixing in some Randall Cobb and Romeo Doubs at the end of your drafts as well, though.

The Packers are tendering WR Allen Lazard at the 2nd-round level. That means any team would need to surrender a Round 2 selection to Green Bay if it wants to sign the restricted free agent. We'd bet on Lazard sticking with the only team he has played for. We'll see whether the Packers at more to the position this offseason. Lazard looks fine as a late-round pick in current best-ball drafting.

Packers WR Randall Cobb will be "out a while" with a "pretty significant" core injury, HC Matt LaFleur said Thursday. Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard will be locked in as Green Bay's top 3 WRs with Cobb out.

Packers WR Randall Cobb suffered a groin injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Rams and won't return. He was having a big one before exiting, catching 4 balls for 95 yards and a score. Cobb's absence leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard as Green Bay's 2nd and 3rd WRs.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He’s not a real fantasy option, but his return puts a slight dent in WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s target projection.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams after a limited week of practice. He’s not a real fantasy option, but Lazard’s return would put a dent in WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s target projection.

11:32am EST 11/21/21

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Vikings. That leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb as Green Bay’s clear #2 and #3 WRs.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. His absence should make WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb close to full-time players. Both guys are still just fantasy fliers, though.

Packers WR Allen Lazard has been activated from the COVID list and will be back for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. WR Davante Adams remains on the COVID list as of Monday afternoon but should be cleared by this weekend.

Packers WRs Davante Adams and Allen Lazard were not activated from the COVID list ahead of the 4 pm ET deadline and are out for tonight's game vs. the Cardinals. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) was not activated from IR and is also out. Green Bay did activate WR Malik Taylor from the COVID list and elevated WR Juwann Winfree from the practice squad. So the Packers' WRs tonight are Randall Cobb, Equaniemous St. Brown, Amari Rodgers, Taylor and Winfree.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Packers WR Davante Adams (COVID) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Cardinals on Thursday night. Adams hasn't officially been ruled out yet, but he didn't travel with the team to Arizona on Wednesday and should be on fantasy benches. WR Allen Lazard is definitely out for Thursday night's game because he's unvaccinated.

Packers WR Allen Lazard has joined WR Davante Adams on the COVID list. Both guys are virtual locks to miss Thursday night's game vs. the Cardinals. We'll see if Green Bay loses anyone else for that one. The Packers are currently down to WRs Randall Cobb, Equanimeous St. Brown and Amari Rodgers on the active roster. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is eligible to come off IR. WRs Juwann Winfree and Chris Blair are on the practice squad. RB Aaron Jones and TE Robert Tonyan figure to play big roles in the passing game on Thursday night.
