Packers WR Davante Adams suffered a calf injury on Wednesday and will not practice on Thursday, HC Mike McCarthy announced. Ouch. WRs Geronimo Allison (concussion) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) are already in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Lions. Now Adams looks iffy too. Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. Brown are the team's top 3 healthy WRs right now.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky considers Geronimo Allison the "best bet" to win the Packers' #3 WR job. Green Bay added 3 WRs in this year's draft -- J'Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. Brown and Marquez Valdes-Scantling -- but Allison holds edges in NFL experience and chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers. The 24-year-old has flashed in spots over the past 2 seasons, including lines of 4-91-1 and 6-122. Green Bay's #3 WR has finished among the top 50 in PPR points in just 3 of 10 seasons since Rodgers took over, so Allison is unlikely to be a standalone value. But an injury to Davante Adams or Randall Cobb would certainly change that.
The Packers added Missouri WR J’Mon Moore in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Moore topped 1,000 yards both of the past 2 seasons, averaging 16.5 yards per catch with 18 total TDs. He goes 6’3, 207 pounds with a strong 78th percentile SPARQ score. Green Bay has a good track record when it comes to drafting WRs, so Moore will certainly be climbing our rookie dynasty rankings. There’s room for him to carve out a 2018 role with Jordy Nelson gone. Moore and Geronimo Allison will compete for the #3 WR spot behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.
