Allen Lazard Will Be Active This Sunday

Wednesday, November 29, 1:42 PM

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that wide receiver Allen Lazard will be active on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13 after he was a healthy scratch in last Friday's loss to the Miami Dolphins. The Jets sent a message to the struggling 27-year-old by benching him last week. After signing a $44 million deal with the Jets in the offseason, Lazard has been hurt by drops and penalties in his first year with the team. He currently has 20 receptions on 41 targets for 290 yards and one touchdown in 10 starts. Lazard will be active against the Falcons this weekend, but he could see fewer snaps and isn't a recommended flex option, even in deeper fantasy leagues. Garrett Wilson remains the only fantasy wideout in New York worth trusting in lineups.

Deebo Samuel Goes Off In Rout Of Eagles

Monday, December 4, 3:05 AM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel backed up a lot of smack talk in a 43-19 victory over the Eagles in Philadelphia on Sunday. The 27-year-old had been publicly doubting the skills of the Eagles secondary in the media for months, so Sunday was a good day for a four-catch, 116-yard, two-touchdown performance. Samuel also had it going on the ground, taking three carries for 22 yards and another touchdown. His two receiving touchdowns were a season-high and he's now scored three rushing touchdowns in his last four games. Samuel is tough to predict because unlike the week-to-week matchup-based uncertainty surrounding many of the receivers near him in the rankings, Samuel's biggest obstacle to consistency is the production of his teammates. The 49ers' uber-talented pass attack will meet the bottom-10 Seattle Seahawks pass defense at Levi's Stadium in Week 14.
