Allison was on his way to a career best season before suffered a core injury, which eventually required surgery. He had 20 receptions for 303 yards in five games. If he plays a full year, he gets 64 receptions for 970 yards and six touchdowns. Allison has a lot to compete with for playing time this year but could win a marquee role with a strong offseason and training camp. He could be anywhere from the No. 2 to 5 receiver for the Packers. Allison lacks some speed for the position but has pretty good hands and runs solid routes.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Allison could have a few big games but likely will be hit or miss in a reserve role most weeks. Plus, he is competing with a lot of similar players for targets. He could get around 40 receptions for 500 yards and a few scores.
There is uncertainty in Green Bay for the first time in many years. A new head coach with Matt LaFleur taking over from Mike McCarthy means a change in offensive play calling, but with change comes opportunity. The depth chart after elite receiver Davante Adams is up for grabs, although Allison certainly looks like he will be the second option for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, the path to success isnt easy for Allison who will have to beat out the duo of Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown. Valdes-Scantling and St. Brown both had opportunity to impress last season but ultimately failed to show any real consistency. Allison himself hasnt shown the highs that might have been expected of him in the Green Bay Packers offense, having played in the NFL for three seasons he has a total of just 55 receptions, 758 yards, and four touchdowns. However, last season was the first one where Allison was able to get a consistent opportunity in the early part of the season. In the four games that were completed in 2018, he was on pace for 1,156 yards and eight touchdowns. Ultimately his production is likely to fall in between those two marks but should be considered for late-round selection.

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison has a chance to be 'dangerous' in head coach Matt LaFleur's offense, according to WR Davante Adams. 'He's the guy who's been working a lot in the slot, and he's used to playing a little more outside, but this is making him a little more dynamic. I think Matt has really tested him or challenged him to widen it out so he can play multiple spots. . . . Him being able to move around right now and be healthy, be himself and just play, being able to have all those things, it's going to be dangerous,' Adams told the team's website.
Fantasy Spin: Aaron Rodgers has stated Marquez Valdes-Scantling had a fantastic spring and indicated he would like to throw to Adams more often (he had 169 targets in 2018). Trevor Davis has also reportedly taken a big step forward, according to LaFleur. In short, owners should pump the breaks on Green Bay receivers for now. One thing is for certain: Rodgers has proven he can make three receivers viable in fantasy. It's just a crapshoot as to whether Allison or Valdes-Scantling should be the second one selected in fantasy.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison looks to be the early favorite to be the Packers slot receiver this offseason. There is an opportunity for a new player to take the role, with Randall Cobb leaving the team to join the Dallas Cowboys this offseason. Allison and Cobb have vastly different body types, but early reports are that he has been impressing in the offseason workouts. Matt LaFleur has worked with larger-type slot receivers with Mohamed Sanu with the Atlanta Falcons, and Cooper Kupp with the Los Angeles Rams with reasonable success. Allison was extremely limited last season due to injury, but in the opening four weeks of the season, he caught 19 receptions for 289 yards and two touchdowns. The early signs are that Allison should be given the opportunity to be successful this season.
Green Bay Packers WRs Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, Jake Kumerow, J'Mon Moore and Trevor Davis could all make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Packers Wire's Zach Kruse, with Adams, Allison, Valdes-Scantling and St. Brown viewed as locks.
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison is 'likely slated as the slot man' in three-receiver sets, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
Fantasy Spin: Allison had a productive start to last season before suffering an injury, and while Marquez Valdes-Scantling may have the inside track on the No. 2 receiver job, the Green Bay passing attack could support three viable fantasy options. Consider Allison a WR4 with upside.
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, hamstring, adductor) said he is mentally and physically strong and feels good after missing 11 games last season. 'I think I'm making a good comeback and I feel confident in myself.'
Fantasy Spin: As it stands, Allison figures to be the Packers' No. 1 wide receiver with Randall Cobb out of the picture, although second-year wide receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown are chomping at the bit to break out. Nonetheless, Allison is in the WR3 conversation if he can avoid any setbacks.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison is ready for an important fourth season in the NFL after signing a one-year, $2.8 million contract as a restricted free agent this offseason. He'll receive a $750,000 signing bonus. Allison had 19 catches for 289 yards and two touchdowns four games into last year, but he suffered a concussion in Week 4 and dealt with injuries the rest of the season. He also dealt with a hamstring issue and eventually needed core muscle surgery. Despite an injury-riddled season, Allison is feeling 100 percent healthy and is confident he'll bounce back. With Randall Cobb going to Dallas, Allison could be the new slot receiver behind Davante Adams -- 43.6 percent of Allison's career NFL catches have come lined up on the inside. With good health, Allison could be in line for a breakout year as he heads into unrestricted free agency in 2020.
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison signed a restricted free-agent contract Friday, March 15. The one-year deal includes undisclosed guarantees and incentives.
