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.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison left in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game against the Lions after colliding helmet-to-helmet with Detroit S Tracy Walker. It'll be surprising if Allison doesn't enter the league concussion protocol off that play, but we'll see about the diagnosis.

The Packers have reached a new 1-year deal with exclusive-rights free agent WR Geronimo Allison. The contract will reportedly pay him more than the ERFA tender, but it's interesting to see the team not commit to the 25-year-old beyond that. Green Bay, of course, added WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. Brown in last year's draft. We'll see where Allison settles on this year's depth chart after losing 11 games to multiple injuries in 2018.

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.
