Geronimo Allison, WR, Green Bay Packers
Allison only had two catches and four targets against the Washington Redskins in Week 3, but he made them count with 76 yards and a 64-yard touchdown in the game. He now has a touchdown in two of three games thus far, with at least 64 yards in all three outings.
Green Bay’s upcoming schedule is a mix of favorable-looking (Buffalo Bills-Week 4, San Francisco 49ers-Week 6, New England Patriots-Week 9) and tough matchups (Detroit Lions-Week 5, Los Angeles Rams-Week 8). But Allison clearly has a substantial role, and that’s good for his fantasy value as long as Aaron Rodgers is able to play through his knee issue.
Even with a slight positive trend, Allison is still widely available in fantasy leagues. There’s no reason to let him linger out there in 12 and 14-team leagues if you’re looking for a WR3 or a WR4 in preparation for bye weeks.
