Allen Lazard Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Lazard emerged as Green Bay’s #2 WR over the final 10 games of 2019, tallying 47 targets, 31 catches, 412 yards and 2 TDs.
  • He averaged 9.17 yards per target on the season, while all other Packers WRs not named Davante Adams averaged 7.31.
  • Lazard heads to training camp as the favorite for the #2 WR job after Green Bay added only WR Devin Funchess this offseason.
  • Green Bay’s #2 WR has finished top 40 in PPR points in 9 of 12 seasons since Aaron Rodgers took over.


Whether it was ineptitude or a big vote of confidence in Lazard, the Packers added very little to their WR room this offseason. In fact, the only move they made was signing Devin Funchess to a modest 1-year, $2.5 million deal in free agency. They didn’t draft a single WR in what was considering 1 of the deepest classes in recent memory.


2019 in review

So Lazard will at least head to training camp as the favorite for the #2 WR job. He took over that spot for the final two-thirds of last season. After going catch-less over the first 5 weeks, Lazard surfaced with a 4-65-1 line in a Week 6 win over the Lions. He then played 55+% of Green Bay’s offensive snaps in 8 of the final 10 regular-season games, including each of the final 6.

Lazard posted decent numbers over that stretch, averaging 4.7 targets, 3.1 catches, 41.2 yards and 0.2 TDs per game. Two of those games came without WR Davante Adams — but Lazard averaged 4.5 targets in those vs. 4.8 in the other 8. He ranked 51st among WRs in both PPR and non-PPR points over those final 10 games.

More importantly, Lazard flashed some chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers. He finished the season with a 67.3% catch rate and 13.6 yards per catch. His 9.17 yards per target ranked 23rd among 79 WRs with 50+ looks. By comparison, the Packers’ other non-Adams WRs — Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison, Jake Kumerow, Darrius Shepherd and Trevor Davis — combined fo…
