Allen Lazard Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Despite losing 6 games to injury last year, Lazard saw his role grow when healthy. He drew a 9.1% target share in 2019 -- 12.2% from Week 6 on, the week of his 1st actual target. Over his 12 games last season (including the playoffs), Lazard got 14.9% of Green Bay targets.
  • He spent more time in the slot in 2020. Lazard ran 37.9% of his pass snaps from that spot in 2019. That climbed to 50.4% last season, making him Green Bay’s most frequent slot man.

  • Lazard stands 6’5, 227 pounds.
  • He did struggle a bit with drops, doubling his drop rate from 7.3% in 2019 to 14.9% last year. That included 1 in each of Green Bay’s 2 playoff games. The drops shouldn’t be a big issue for his fantasy outlook as long as Lazard stays on the field, but there’s potential for that aspect to open a door to Amari Rodgers or land Lazard in…
