Geronimo Allison, WR, Green Bay Packers
The highlight for Allison in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings was an early blocked punt, but he also had six catches for 64 yards and now has 11 receptions through two games this season. He’s stepped into a significant role, and has been an upgrade over the diminished 2017 version of Jordy Nelson.
A healthy Aaron Rodgers has made three wide receivers fantasy relevant on a regular basis, and over two games this year that’s been the case. Allison was one young wide receiver who did not receive Rodgers’ preseason ire, as he was instead praised during that rant.
Allison’s ownership rates have multiplied over the last week, as fantasy owners notice and buy in. But, at least for now, there’s still a lot of room to add him.
