|A pleasant surprise for the Packers last season, the former UDFA signed a one-year extension this offseason. Likely thrust into a role he wasn't quite ready for due to injury and roster limitations, Lazard did provide a spark at times in his first season as a starter. With a similar build, but more physical game, I expect that Funchess will push Lazard down a peg on the depth chart. Early mock drafts have Lazard being taken before Funchess, but I expect that might flip-flop come late summer. With some other young talent in the receiving room vying for scraps behind Adams, I'm not sure this offense can really support more than one consistent fantasy option behind the big dog. For my money I'm going to put my stock in Funchess and his previous (albeit limited) production and draft pedigree.

|#Packers WR Allen Lazard, activated this week following surgery for a core muscle injury, is expected to play today, source said. Lazard will be on a pitch count, as GB eases him in. But he should play. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Givin Lazard is expected to be limited he's not a good a fantasy option in Week 11 against the Colts. Despite back to back solid outings from Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Davante Adams will be continue to be the lone Packers receiver fantasy owners can trust.

|Davante Adams has "made good progress and should be good to go" Sunday vs. the Colts per Matt LaFleur.

FFToday's Take: Adams (ankle) was limited in practice Friday but it sounds like he is going to suit up. Lazard is setting up to be a gametime decision and would be a risky fantasy play even if he is active. Marquez Valdes-Scantling has scored three touchdowns in the last two weeks.

Tonyan added to injury report on Thursday

|Christian Kirksey practiced again but Allen Lazard did not go. That's the first time Lazard hasn't worked since the three-week window to return off IR opened Oct. 28. TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) also didn't go. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Tonyan was added to the injury report yesterday with an ankle injury. The missed practice on Friday suggests he won't play this week but we'll get further clarification once the injury report comes out later today.
