3. Allen Lazard, WR, NY Jets

This one might seem a little strange, but I actually think Allen Lazard shapes up to have a big day on Sunday afternoon, pacing the Jets in yards and catches.

Of course, I realize Garrett Wilson is still on the Jets, and he is truly an otherworldly talent. But I expect Cowboys star corner Trevon Diggs to follow Wilson around most of the game, and with his ability to intercept passes, I think Wilson will stay away from that option as much as possible.

That leaves Lazard as a receiving target for Wilson, who connected with Lazard for two catches and 46 yards against the Bills, leading the Jets in yards.

On multiple big third downs, Wilson found Lazard for big-time yardage, including the critical third down that extended the drive that ended in the Garrett Wilson touchdown. I think Lazard finds more of those holes in the Cowboys' defense and uses his big body to make some tough catches.

I don't expect the Jets to throw the ball a ton, and I wouldn't be surprised if Wilson ends with less than 20 attempts again and less than 150 passing yards. I think the Jets are actively trying to do that. It won't leave many opportunities for receivers to flourish and put up big days.

Priced at just $5400, Lazard is a cheap option that opens up more money for other big names. At that price, if Lazard can bring in five catches for 60 yards, it would be a pretty good day, even if he cannot find the endzone.
