The Green Bay Packers’ offense is littered with a ton of top-tier fantasy players, starting with Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones, and Davante Adams. All three of those players are must-start play every week. However, the Packers do have some value plays as well on offense, which includes Jamaal Williams, Robert Tonyan, and now Allen Lazard.
On Sunday night against the Chicago Bears, Lazard had four receptions (six targets) for 23 yards and a touchdowns. While the yards gained isn't impressive, it was nice to see Lazard targeted a good amount of time, after missing some games due to core muscle surgery. In his return last week against the Colts, the former Iowa State Cyclone had two receptions (four targets) for 18 yards.
Before the 6-foot-5 wide receiver underwent surgery, he had an 87 percent snap share in Green Bay’s first three games. Within those first few outings, Lazard produced six receptions (eight targets) for 146 yards and a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints. If Lazard can continue to average four targets going forward, he’ll become a solid WR3/WR4 with the fantasy football playoffs looming. Lazard is currently rostered in 28 percent of ESPN leagues and 37 percent of Yahoo! fantasy leagues.
