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.
ESPN's Lisa Salters reports that Packers WRs Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb are "likely to be inactive" for tonight's game against the 49ers with their hamstring injuries. We'll find out for sure around 7 pm ET. Their absences would again leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown as Green Bay's #2 and #3 WRs. MVS is a viable WR3 and ESB a WR4 flier.
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.
