Game status: Lazard is ACTIVE for Week 11.

Game day update: Lazard is expected to play on today, but will be on a pitch count, per Ian Rapoport.

The Green Bay Packers activated Allen Lazard from the injured reserve list earlier this week. The wide receiver has been sidelined since Week 3 with an abdominal injury. He was able to get in some work all week in practice, but in a limited role. His status for this week’s tilt against the Indianapolis Colts is shaping up to be a game-time decision.

Fantasy impact: Allen Lazard (core injury)

Davante Adams is going to play in this game, after some question earlier in the week, and he will be the obvious top choice among Packers receivers. If Lazard does return to action, he would be a borderline WR4 against the Colts. And his return to action would push Marquez Valdes-Scantling back to fantasy irrelevance, especially this week.

The Colts haven’t allowed opposing wide receivers to score for two weeks now, and they’ve only given up eight touchdowns to the position all season.
