|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 out indefinitely|

FFToday's Take: Lazard was a popular add off the waiver wire this week, but he probably needs to be dropped in leagues without an IR spot or stashed on IR in ones that do. Thus, fantasy owners can turn back to Marquez Valdes-Scantling or just avoid Green Bay receivers not named Davante Adams for the time being. Fortunately for the Packers, Adams got in a limited practice Thursday after failing to practice at all last week.

|Packers will give WR Davante Adams up until game time Sunday night to try to recover from his hamstring injury and prove he can play against the Saints, per source. Adams remains doubtful, but the Packers are not giving up all hope yet and plan to test him pregame. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It's going to be difficult for fantasy owners to press the button on Adams this week. He's currently listed as Doubtful but the Packers will give him as much time as possible to prove he can play. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard would be the top two targets for Aaron Rodgers if Adams sits.

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.
