Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison was not targeted in a 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: It appears that the battle to be the No. 2 receiver has been won by Marquez Valdes-Scantling in a landslide. Fantasy owners should probably hang on to Allison for a couple more games to see if his usage picks up at all, but he needs to be left on the bench heading into Week 2.

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison told ESPN's Rob Demovsky that his main focus will be playing in the slot in 2019.
Huddle Up: Obviously, this news doesn't preclude Davante Adams or Marquez Valdes-Scantling from lining up inside on occasion, but it is a big deal for Allison in that he is 6-foot-3, 202-pound receiver who should be getting a fair amount of easy throws from Aaron Rodgers. If Allison locks down the slot as he suspects he will, he should have no problem being a serviceable WR3 for fantasy purposes.

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.
Huddle Up: 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 WR Geronimo Allison is 'likely slated as the slot man' in three-receiver sets, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: 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.'
Huddle Up: 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 WR Geronimo Allison's (groin) season is over after the Packers used their second Reserve/Injured designation to return on WR Jake Kumerow (shoulder) Wednesday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Allison would have been eligible to return in the playoffs, which didn't leave much for the fantasy owner anyway. He should be dropped in all but dynasty formats.

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (core) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: Randall Cobb and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are the primary beneficiaries of Allison being sidelined. Valdes-Scantling is a particularly intriguing prospect now as he is likely available in many leagues. Consider him a top waiver-wire priority heading into Week 10.

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (core) is expected to undergo surgery for a core muscle injury after consulting a specialist, according to a source. The recovery period is around six weeks, making Allisson a candidate to be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Allison's misfortune creates a bigger opportunity for Randall Cobb and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to produce. Furthermore, Equanimeous St. Brown is worthy of a pickup off waivers if available.

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring, groin) was officially ruled out for Week 9 Saturday, Nov. 3.
Huddle Up: Marquez Valdes-Scantling possesses flex appeal with the absence of Allison. There should also be a heavy dose of Davante Adams with both Jimmy Graham and Randall Cobb seeing more targets. Cobb has WR3 upside.

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring, groin) did not practice Friday, Nov. 2 and he is listed as doubtful for the Week 9 game against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Allison should be avoided in all fantasy leagues this week, as there is just a 25 percent chance he plays. Equanimeous St. Brown is all banged up, so Marquez Valdes-Scantling could surprise.
