Lazard was targeted six times and caught three passes for 27 yards in Sunday's victory over the Panthers.
Lazard's six targets trailed only Davante Adams among Packers skill players, but he was unable to do much for fantasy players, finishing with his fewest yards in a game since bursting onto the scene in Week 7. Lazard has averaged just under five targets per game since that same Week 7 contest, but he has steadily lost playing time, as his snap-count percentage fell Sunday for the third straight game. Lazard and the Packers will be on bye in Week 11 before returning to action in Week 12 in a tough away matchup against the 49ers.
Lazard caught three of four targets for a team-high 44 yards in Sunday's 26-11 loss to the Chargers.
The Packers left their offense at home when they flew west, and Lazard's 17-yard grab in the fourth quarter ended up being the team's longest play from scrimmage. It was encouraging to see the second-year receiver maintain his usual volume even with Davante Adams back in the lineup, and Lazard may have done enough to establish himself as Aaron Rodgers' No. 2 WR going forward.
Lazard caught all five of his targets for 42 yards during Sunday's 31-24 win over the Chiefs.
Lazard saw the largest snap count (67 percent) of any Green Bay wideout during the Week 8 win, and he outpaced fellow receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison in terms of receiving yards. The Iowa State product appears to be entrenching himself as a reliable weapon in the Packers' aerial attack, though it remains to be seen what sort of role he'll play when Davante Adams (toe) eventually returns to the lineup.
Lazard led Packers receivers in snaps in Sunday's victory over the Raiders, and caught three passes on four targets for 42 yards.
Lazard could not match his surprising output from Week 6, but he was rewarded for his strong showing, playing 51 of a possible 60 snaps -- eight more than any other Packers pass catcher. Fellow wideouts Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison did not see a full workload Sunday after missing practice time last week, and Davante Adams (toe) will be back at some point, so it's not a guarantee Lazard sees the field as frequently moving forward. Chances are he sees plenty of action in Week 8 if Adams misses another game, however.
Lazard was working with the Packers' first-team offense during pregame warmups and is expected to retain a role in the team's passing game Sunday against the Raiders, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports.
After Davante Adams (toe) was ruled out and both Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee/ankle) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) were listed as questionable heading into Sunday, Lazard had a real chance at serving as Aaron Rodgers' top target in Week 7. Lazard's outlook dampened after Valdes-Scantling and Allison were ultimately cleared to play, but there should be enough snaps to go around for all three wideouts. The fact that Valdes-Scantling in particular may be impacted by the lower-body issues could prompt Rodgers to lean more heavily on Lazard, who hauled in four of five targets for 65 yards and a touchdown across only 17 offensive snaps in the Week 6 win over Detroit.
Lazard caught four of five targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-22 win over the Lions.
Lazard entered Monday with one catch for seven yards in his career, but with Davante Adams (toe) out again and both Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison (concussion) exiting at various points, he was given an opportunity to impress. Although he failed to haul in a catchable pass on his first target, Lazard immediately bounced back, corralling an unbelievable 35-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers on the very next play, cutting the Packers' fourth-quarter deficit to two points in the process. After that contribution, Rodgers looked for Lazard three times on the team's final drive, which ultimately helped set up the game-winning field goal. Although the injuries to his fellow wideouts will be important to monitor ahead of Week 7's game versus the Raiders, Lazard surely earned himself some extra snaps with his improbable performance Monday.
Lazard played one snap on offense in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.
Lazard's snap count increased the previous three games, but it dove drastically in Week 5, even with fellow wideout Davante Adams (toe) unable to take the field. Lazard was among the leaders in special teams snaps Sunday, and he figures to continue working mainly in that role.
Lazard played 14 snaps on offense in Thursday's loss to the Eagles.
Lazard's snap count has steadily increased, and his 14 snaps Week 4 mark a new high for the season. While he wasn't officially targeted Thursday, he did receive a pass in his direction in the end zone in the fourth quarter, a play that was nullified by a pass interference penalty. Lazard has played a bit role up to this point, but he would be a candidate for more work should fellow wideout Davante Adams miss time with the toe injury he suffered in Thursday's contest.
Lazard played five snaps on offense in Sunday's victory over the Broncos.
Lazard was on the field for just one offensive play over the first two games of the season, but he saw a minor bump Week 3 with Jake Kumerow (shoulder) inactive and Trevor Davis no longer on the roster, and finished fourth among Packers receivers in the snap count department. Lazard may not hold that spot for long, though, as Kumerow is not facing a long-term absence and fellow wideout Darrius Shepherd could gradually become more involved after making his season debut Week 3.
Lazard was limited to special-teams duty in Thursday's victory over the Bears.
Lazard served as the Packers' sixth receiver in Week 1, but only four wideouts were involved in the game plan, and Lazard did not see a snap on offense. It remains to be seen if Lazard will suit up for Week 2, as fellow wideout Darrius Shepherd (hamstring) -- who beat out Lazard for a spot on the initial 53-man roster -- could return after missing Week 1.
The Packers signed Lazard (concussion) to their 53-man roster Wednesday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
With Darrius Shepherd dealing with a hamstring injury and tight end Jace Sternberger (knee) on injured reserve, the Packers were in need of more pass-catching depth. Lazard made a worthy case for a roster spot in the preseason, but Shepherd's own solid showing in the exhibition slate made the former expendable. For now, there will be room for both on the roster, and Lazard could end up dressing in Thursday's season opener versus the Bears with Shepherd already ruled out. Lazard was dealing with a concussion ahead of landing on the practice squad, but his signing indicates that he's likely passed through all five phases of the protocol.
Lazard (concussion) was waived by the Packers and signed to their practice squad Sunday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
As evidenced by this news, Lazard was a long shot to make the roster but ended up staying put in some fashion. Lazard was dealing with a concussion, and it's presumed he is still in the league's concussion protocol at the moment.
Lazard was placed in the league's concussion protocol Sunday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Lazard suffered the injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders, and it was originally diagnosed as a shoulder injury. The second-year receiver will have to clear protocol before he's allowed to rejoin the team for practice and games.
Lazard (shoulder) is not expected to miss significant time after exiting Thursday's preseason loss to the Raiders, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Lazard appeared to suffer a shoulder injury after making a diving catch during Thursday's exhibition tilt. The second-year receiver has put forth a strong preseason and has a chance to make the 53-man roster if healthy.
Lazard was taken to the medical tent after landing hard on his shoulder during Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Lazard stayed down on the ground after making a diving catch, though he eventually got up and walked off the field. The severity of his injury is unknown at this point.
Lazard had three receptions for 63 yards in Thursday's preseason loss to the Ravens.
Lazard found paydirt in the Packers' first preseason game, and he did what he needed to do in the second contest to improve his chances of landing a roster spot by pacing all pass catchers in receiving yards.
Lazard caught a 27-yard touchdown pass in Thursday's preseason game against the Texans.
The 6-foot-5 Lazard used his size to high-point a pass from quarterback Tim Boyle and find paydirt in the Packers' exhibition opener. Lazard got off to a good start, but he will likely need to make a few more plays to land a spot on the Packers' roster for Week 1.
Lazard caught one pass for seven yards in one game with the Packers in 2018.
Lazard signed with Green Bay on Dec. 18 and saw his first NFL action during a Week 17 loss to the Lions, in which fellow wideouts Davante Adams and Equanimeous St. Brown did not suit up. The undrafted rookie made the most of his sole offensive snap, hauling in a seven-yard pass from backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound receiver will spend the offseason attempting to carve out a depth role.
Lazard was signed by the Packers on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
Lazard was poached off the Jaguars' practice squad as the Packers bolster their depth at wide receiver with Randall Cobb still subject to the league's concussion protocol. Lazard went undrafted out of Iowa State in April despite a 6-foot-4, 227-pound frame, so he figures to be buried on the depth chart in Green Bay for the final two weeks of the regular season.
The Jaguars waived Lazard on Friday, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.
Lazard was scooped up as a free agent after going undrafted. Although he had some hype at the time, he was ultimately unable to earn a role on the team's 53-man roster. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound receiver may see some interest on the wire due to his size.
