Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson (knee) has come along enough in his recovery from minor knee surgery that he is ‘hopeful’ for Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings, according to head coach Matt LaFleur on Monday, Sept. 5. Conversely, LaFleur was non-committal about the ability of WR Allen Lazard (undisclosed) in the opener.
Lazard is the big one here for fantasy purposes – at least for the moment. There were reports Lazard missed practices last week for undisclosed reasons, but it is still too early to get worried about his Week 1 status just yet. In the event Lazard doesn’t play, Sammy Watkins and Randall Cobb would likely start, although the most interesting Packer wideout would likely be Romeo Doubs.Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - Tom Silverstein
