Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard received a high number of targets in last week’s contest, and fantasy managers will hope for that to continue in Sunday’s Week 17 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. If he’s on your roster, here’s an overview of what to consider before making a decision.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Packers WR Allen Lazard

Aaron Rodgers targeted Lazard 11 times in last week’s 26-20 win over the Miami Dolphins, and he caught five balls for 61 yards. The targets tied a season-high, and he could be in line for another big share of the targets if Christian Watson is out. Lazard still leads all Packers receivers in receptions (51), targets (88) and yards (688) on the season and will face a Vikings defense that ranks dead last in passing yards allowed per game (281.5).

Start or sit in Week 17?

Lazard is a borderline top-30 wide receiver this weekend, so there are scenarios where he could be entered into your lineup especially if Watson is out.
