What to do with Davante Adams, Allen Lazard in Week 16 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Davante Adams, Allen Lazard ahead of the Titans Week 16 matchup against the Packers on Sunday Night Football.

The Packers took down the Panthers last week 24-16 to win their fourth straight game. Having clinched both the division and a playoff spot, they’ll look toward Week 16 against a Titans defense who are one of the worst in the league against opposing wide receivers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Packers WRs Davante Adams, Allen Lazard

Adams and Lazard will be going up a Tennessee defense who are allowing 26.3 fantasy points per game to opposing WRs, so it’s expected that one, if not both, of these guys will go huge this weekend. All signs point to Adams scoring at least 20 if not more on his own. While the Packers struggled in the air last week against the Panthers, Adams still managed to log 42 yards while going 7-for-10. Lazard barely outperformed him, going 5-for-6 with 56 yards — neither were able to find the end zone. That’s a rare week, though, as Adams has seen triple digits in yards six times this season. For Lazard, he’ll be looking to capitalize on the opportunity at hand even if Adams still sees the majority of targets. If you have both players on your team, Adams is an easy lock at WR1 and Lazard should also get a look in your FLEX spot as well.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Davante Adams, start Allen Lazard.
