2020 Expectations for Allen Lazard

200

Allen Lazard is set to enter the season as the second receiver on the depth chart, and it will be well-earned. After just missing out on the initial 53-man roster out of training camp last season (despite being elevated shortly after), Lazard came up for Green Bay when it needed him to.

Lazard ended the 2019 season with 477 receiving yards, giving him the second highest total on the team behind only star receiver Davante Adams, and that was with him starting only three games for the Packers. His 67.3% catch percentage was also the highest catch percentage by a Packers wide receiver last season.

While his playing time increased as the season progressed, Lazard ended up on offense for 44% of the team’s total snaps. For context, Marquez Valdes-Scantling played 64% of snaps on offense in 2018 and 50% in 2019, with Geronimo Allison taking 59% of snaps in 2019.
