Geronimo Allison, WR, Green Bay Packers
With Randall Cobb (hamstring) out Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, Allison had six catches (on a career-high 11 targets) for 80 yards. He was shaken up himself during the game, but it didn’t appear to be serious and he has at least five catches or a touchdown in all four games this season.
Green Bay’s wide receivers get a mix of tough (Detroit Lions-Week 5, Los Angeles Rams-Week 8) and easy (San Francisco 49ers-Week 6, New England Patriots-Week 9) matchups over their next four games. But Allison’s role is significant, and he’s a threat for double-digit targets in any game Cobb misses.
Holding a solid share of an Aaron Rodgers-led offense makes anyone fantasy relevant, and Allison has emerged as the No. 2 wide receiver. Now is the time to grab him off the waiver wire.
