The Packers have placed WR Geronimo Allison on IR with his core muscle injury. He's not eligible to return until the postseason and can be dropped from all redraft rosters. Green Bay will move forward with Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Randall Cobb and Equanimeous St. Brown as its top 4 WRs. Adams will continue to dominate targets, while Valdes-Scantling and Cobb are WR3 options.
Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that WR Geronimo Allison has a "significant" core injury. Insider Tom Silverstein writes that it "sounds like" Allison will need surgery. We'll look for more details on the situation, but expect Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb to serve as Green Bay's top 3 WRs for the foreseeable future.
The Packers have downgraded WR Geronimo Allison (groin) to out for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. That leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb as the #2 and #3 WRs. Both are viable fantasy plays in what should be a shootout, but we prefer Valdes-Scantling, who has out-played Cobb this season.
Packers WR Geronimo Allison (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Patriots. He injured his groin on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday. Expect Allison to be inactive for this one. His absence makes Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb safer fantasy plays.
Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Friday that WR Geronimo Allison injured his groin in Thursday's practice. "We'll see where he is tomorrow," McCarthy added. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but the fact that Packers-Patriots is the Sunday nighter makes this a tricky situation for fantasy owners. Allison should be on benches for now. His absence would make WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb much safer fantasy plays.
