|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.

Allen Lazard gets a fantasy bump

FFToday's Take: The Packers made one move to their receiving corps this off-season, signing the former Carolina Panther to a one-year $2.5 million deal. He was likely looking at a role among the top three receivers in the Packers offense. Green Bay can bring him back on the same contract next season. Allen Lazard gets a fantasy bump and can be considered in the late rounds of your drat.
