Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Lazard is an intriguing FLEX play every single week because Rodgers can always connect with him on a shot in the end zone. However, if that doesn't happen, you're unlikely to be satisfied with his production. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There were back-to-back plays in Week 2 where Aaron Rodgers likely lost some confidence in Lazard, as he threw the ball back-shoulder on what should have been a 28-yard touchdown, but Lazard turned around too late. The very next play, he dropped a pass over the middle. He has nine targets through two games, which isn't the end of the world, but it's also not the range we were hoping for. The Saints perimeter cornerback duo of Marshon Lattimore and Janoris Jenkins is among the best in the NFL, so it means a lot to know that Lazard is playing 63 percent of his snaps in the slot. That will match him up with Chauncey Gardner-Johnson most of the time. He's allowed 7-of-8 passing in his coverage for 46 yards through two weeks. It's not a matchup you actively target, but it's the best of the Packers bunch. Lazard should be on the WR4/5 radar for this game, especially if Adams is held out, as it would raise his target floor.Some will wonder if Claypool is the add off the waiver wire after his big catch last week, but he's still trailing Washington in the pecking order. Claypool ran 13 routes while Washington ran 22 of them. This is not a team that runs 4WR sets, so we're going to have to wait for one of them to emerge before relying on either of them as anything more than a big play or bust WR5/6-type option. For now, the better option is Washington, but knowing the Texans have faced just 18.0 receiver targets per game, it's tough to say either of them are good bets.
