2022 FF Notes: Two WR Notes (on Lazard, Harty)…
-- The Allen Lazard FF discount window is slowly closing…and may get rapidly slammed shut any day now.
Lazard has signed his RFA contract. Reports are finally being floated by football analysts about him as the Packers’ #1 WR in 2022. He’s going to go from WR 4-5 ADP to now WR 3-4 in valuation this week…on his way to WR2-3 eventually, where people still don’t fully believe it, but they know if YOU are asking for Lazard in trade…they should worry/take it seriously/you must know something.
You need to get your final deals on Lazard, if you want in, wrapped up ASAP. The downside risk on all this is – if Green Bay makes a move for like a D.K. Metcalf or Diontae Johnson and that blows up the Lazard narrative. More likely, all the Packers will be able to do is overspend for Julio Jones or some other past-prime WR.
I believe in a cheap Allen Lazard gamble that he’s the Davante-lite for 2022…I don’t want to pay a heavy speculative price for a still, somewhat, speculative stock. That ‘cheap’ opportunity is going away…try and catch it fast before it’s totally gone.
-- The Saints WR, that I love, but I also realize he’s screwed for FF 2022…Deonte Harris…well, he has changed his last name to ‘Harty’ to honor a family member.
Deonte Harty…is now screwed/buried for FF 2022 in New Orleans.
