  • Allen Lazard Can't Be Trusted In Week 3

    Headshot for Allen Lazard

    New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard has been quiet to start the 2023 campaign and will look to get more involved in a Week 3 divisional matchup against the New England Patriots. New England has allowed a fair amount of production to opposing wideouts so far this season, but Lazard has just four catches through two games despite playing on the vast majority of New York's offensive snaps. With Zach Wilson at the helm, it's hard to expect substantial fantasy output from any of the Jets' pass-catchers. Lazard should not be considered in starting fantasy lineups this week and can remain on waiver wires in most leagues.

  • Allen Lazard Does Little Against Cowboys

    Headshot for Allen Lazard

    New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard secured two of his four targets for 23 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Lazard was the third-most targeted player on New York's offense, trailing just Garrett Wilson and tight end Tyler Conklin, but this didn't translate to much production with Zach Wilson under center. The 27-year-old will have a slightly easier matchup next week against the New England Patriots but fantasy managers should feel comfortable moving on from Lazard in most formats.

  • Allen Lazard - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Allen Lazard

    New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard led the team in receiving yards in the season opener and will look to build upon that performance in a Week 2 bout with the Dallas Cowboys. Lazard is the clear WR2 behind Garrett Wilson in New York, but he's unlikely to become a consistent fantasy option with Zach Wilson taking over QB1 duties for the injured Aaron Rodgers (Achilles). In a difficult matchup against the Cowboys' stout defense, fantasy managers should look elsewhere for a starter and can consider dropping Lazard from their rosters in shallow formats.

  • Allen Lazard Posts 46 Yards In Season Opener

    Headshot for Allen Lazard

    New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard hauled in two of his four targets for 46 yards in a Week 1 victory over the Buffalo Bills. Lazard managed to lead the Jets in receiving yards but was out-targeted by second-year pro Garrett Wilson. The 27-year-old appears to be the WR2 for New York, but with Aaron Rodgers (ankle) possibly missing the rest of the season, it's hard to imagine deploying Lazard as anything more than a desperation flex option in fantasy lineups. He's likely to have some solid performances even with Zach Wilson under center, but it should be safe to move on from Lazard in most formats.

  • Allen Lazard An Uninspiring Fantasy Option In Week 1

    Headshot for Allen Lazard

    New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard will make his regular-season debut for the team in a Week 1 home matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Lazard's pre-existing chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers could potentially help him succeed to begin the 2023 campaign, especially against a Buffalo defense that struggled against opposing receivers last season. Still, it seems relatively clear that second-year pro Garrett Wilson will be Rodgers' top target in New York, with Lazard, Mecole Hardman Jr., and Randall Cobb competing for opportunities behind him. Lazard could be a sneaky flex play in deeper leagues, but fantasy managers are likely to have better options in most formats.

  • Allen Lazard Dealing With AC Joint Injury

    Headshot for Allen Lazard

    New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder) is dealing with an AC joint injury. He will be able to play in Week 1 but won't practice on Thursday, and his status for the preseason finale on Saturday against the New York Giants is unclear, according to head coach Robert Saleh. The 27-year-old will most likely not play this weekend as he looks to get back to 100 percent health for the start of the regular season. Lazard has a chance to return some real nice value as a late-round sleeper pick in fantasy drafts, especially after the retirement of Corey Davis on Wednesday. There is plenty of competition for targets in New York in 2023, but Lazard has a lot of chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and scored 13 touchdowns with the future Hall of Famer the last two years in Green Bay.

  • Allen Lazard Dealing With Minor Injury

    Headshot for Allen Lazard

    New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard left training camp practice on Wednesday with an undisclosed injury and didn't return, but he's expected to be fine, according to sources. There isn't a specific timetable for Lazard's return, but all indications are that it's not a long-term issue. Before leaving, he made the play of practice with a 30-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Aaron Rodgers over cornerback Sauce Gardner. Don't expect to see the 27-year-old wideout play in the preseason finale this Saturday against the New York Giants, but he should be ready for Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills. Lazard has excellent chemistry with Rodgers from their time in Green Bay, making him a late-round receiver to target in fantasy drafts. His 2023 outlook looks even better after Corey Davis retired on Wednesday.

  • Garrett Wilson Limps Off Field Thursday

    Headshot for Corey Davis

    New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson (ankle) limped off the practice field at training camp on Thursday with an apparent ankle injury and was taken to the locker room. It looks like Wilson was able to leave under his own power, which is a good sign, but it's not what you want to see so early in camp. The 23-year-old had an outstanding rookie year in 2022 with 1,103 receiving yards and four touchdowns on 147 targets and could do even more damage in his sophomore season with quarterback Aaron Rodgers now in town. We'll pass along any updates on Wilson's condition. Until we know more, consider him day-to-day. If it's a significant injury that causes him to miss extended time, Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman Jr. and Corey Davis would see more targets in the passing game.
