  • Allen Lazard Could Be No. 1 Receiver

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard is expected to see a heavier workload heading into next season. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers mentioned that he's excited about Lazard getting a chance to be the No. 1 receiver. Last season, Lazard set career highs in receptions (40), receiving yards (513), and touchdowns (8) in 15 games last season. The departure of Davante Adams has opened up a door for Lazard to make an even bigger impact on the roster. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect Lazard to produce like a No. 1 receiver, but his value should be on the rise.

  • Packers Could Shake Up RB Depth Chart Next Offseason

    The Packers had one of the best RB tandems in the NFL last season, and they’ll roll with the same duo in 2022. However, that might be the last season we’ll see the two-headed monster in Green Bay. Matt Schneidman of The Athletic writes that the Packers could move on from one of Aaron Jones […]

  • Rashan Gary Looking Lean

    Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Rashan Gary had as good a spring as anyone in an offseason in which the Packers did almost no full-speed 11-on-11 work. Gary looked lean and muscular and is coming off a career-best season in which he racked up 9.5 sacks and 28 quarterback hits. He was one of the few starters that stuck around through the end of organized team activities, saying, "I'm just here trying to get better." Green Bay exercised Gary's fifth-year option back in April after the 24-year-old stepped into a bigger role in 2021 due to Za'Darius Smith's back injury that kept him out nearly all season. Along with his 9.5 sacks, Gary had 47 tackles (27 solo) and two forced fumbles in 16 games played. He'll once again be asked to take on a big role with Smith now in Minnesota.

  • Romeo Doubs Makes Presence Felt In Offseason Workouts

    Green Bay Packers fourth-round rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs caught more passes than anyone during portions of offseason practice open to the media. "I felt really comfortable in this system," Doubs said. "I'm just willing to do whatever it takes to get wherever there is I need to be, whether it's the best in the game or intermediate, it doesn't matter to me. I just want to make sure I'm doing my part for everyone in this room and those who I'd love to inspire outside this room." Second-rounder Christian Watson is expected to have the biggest immediate role of the Packers' rookie receivers, but Doubs is one to keep an eye on in 2022 and beyond. The Nevada product had 80 receptions for 1,109 yards and 11 touchdowns in his final collegiate season.

  • Packers Eyeing Veteran Edge Addition?

    The Packers have made a number of changes to their edge rush group this offseason, but another addition may be in the cards. The team “might be looking for upgrades” at the position, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.  Green Bay lost Za'Darius Smith in free agency to the Ravens, it appeared at first, but he ultimately signed […]

  • Allen Lazard Should Be Aaron Rodgers' Go-To Receiver

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard is a good bet to lead the team in catches in 2022 now that Davante Adams is no longer with the team. Lazard has sturdy hands and has built plenty of trust with quarterback Aaron Rodgers over the last three seasons, leading Rodgers to express confidence this spring in Lazard becoming the Packers No. 1 receiver. The 26-year-old isn't much of a deep threat, but he has proven reliable in the short and intermediate passing game, which will give him plenty of chances on third downs and deep in the red zone. Rodgers has a tendency to make his top receivers much better, and it should be no different with Lazard this year. He probably still won't be flashy, but you could do much worse than him as your WR4 in fantasy.
