Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Lions. He comes with elevated risk playing through that shoulder injury, but there’s plenty of upside against this bad Detroit secondary. Packers WR Christian Watson (concussion) is also active. He can’t be trusted in Week 9 fantasy lineups but does add some downside to WR Romeo Doubs. Watson appeared to be playing ahead of Doubs before exiting early last week.
The Jets have agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal with WR Allen Lazard. The contract includes $22 million in guaranteed money. Lazard logged career-highs in receptions (60) and receiving yards (788) as the Packers' de facto WR1 in the absence of Davante Adams. This move carries a couple of pieces of impact. First, this signing is likely to effectively end WR Corey Davis' tenure with the Jets. Moving on from Davis would free up $10.5 million in cap space for the Jets. Second, Lazard being brought in signals that the franchise is continuing to appeal to the interests of QB Aaron Rodgers. Whether or not Rodgers ultimately becomes the Jets' next signal-caller, Lazard will have to battle with WR Garrett Wilson for targets and likely doesn't carry much appeal beyond being a WR3/WR4 for fantasy managers. Either way, this deal likely means more for real-life football than fantasy football.
Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. HC Matt LaFleur labeled him a game-time decision on Friday. We’ll get Green Bay’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. If he plays, Lazard will have plenty of fantasy upside against the league’s 26th-ranked WR defense. WR Christian Watson (concussion) is listed as questionable, but he remained limited in Friday’s practice and seems unlikely to be cleared by Sunday.
Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Thursday. He has a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Lions, but we'll get another update on Lazard tomorrow.
Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It looks like he has a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Lions. We'll get another update on Lazard tomorrow. WR Christian Watson (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.
Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Bills. That takes away the top option in a struggling passing game. Romeo Doubs and Sammy Watkins, who was limited in practice all week with a hamstring but isn’t listed on the final injury report, figure to serve as QB Aaron Rodgers’ top 2 WRs. WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is listed as questionable after 3 limited practices.
