Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

The Lions signed Geronimo Allison to the active roster.

Detroit is looking for players to step up at receiver this season, so Allison gets a big opportunity with a call-up from the practice squad. He's someone to keep an eye on in deeper leagues.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

The Lions are releasing Geronimo Allison, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Allison wasn't able to crack a wide-open Detroit receiving corps, but he is still just 27 and should be able to get a shot elsewhere. Tyrell Williams, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Khalif Raymond are the projected starters for the Lions.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison is opting out of the 2020 season.

The start of Allison's Lions career will have to wait, as he's the latest player to opt out in what's been a flurry of them in recent days. The former Packer receiver's contract with Detroit will toll over into next year, and he could ultimately have a decent shot to carve out a role as a top-three receiver for the Lions.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

The Lions are signing Geronimo Allison.

Allison is heading to Detroit after spending the first four seasons of his career in Green Bay, but he will at best be the team's No. 4 receiver behind Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and Danny Amendola. While the 26-year-old has flashed talent in the past, he may need a big summer to have a role for the Lions because of how strong this year's draft class is at receiver.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) is officially active for Week 7.

Allison was listed as doubtful when the injury report was released on Friday, but he was updated to questionable yesterday and was trending towards having a strong shot to play today against the Raiders. He will be out there after clearing concussion protocol, which is great to see. But Allison is not a highly recommended fantasy option for Week 7.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) was upgraded to questionable for Week 7.

It sounds like Allison has made progress through concussion protocol in the last day, and he appears to have a decent chance to play tomorrow against the Raiders. Allison’s game status will be known by 11:30 AM ET tomorrow.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) is listed as doubtful for Week 7.

Allison is probably going to miss this Sunday against the Raiders. The concussion is the biggest obstacle right now, and he's looking unlikely to get cleared in the next 24-48 hours ahead of the game.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) did not practice today.

Allison must clear concussion protocol before he can play, and he's dealing with a chest issue on top of the concussion. Hopefully he's feeling better soon, but Week 7 is looking iffy for now. We'll update you if Allison can hit the practice field tomorrow or Friday.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison leaves game after hit to the head.

Allison attempted to catch a deep crossing route in the third quarter against the Lions, but he was accidentally hit in the head by safety Tracy Walker, who was simply going for the ball and had a terrible unnecessary roughness call against him. Allison has his shoulder pads off and is now walking to the locker room, so his night is probably over. Before leaving, Allison had three receptions for 40 yards, which currently leads Green Bay in receiving, though he did have a couple of drops.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Davante Adams thinks Geronimo Allison can be "dangerous" in the Packers' new offense.

Of Allison, Adams said: "He’s the guy who’s been working a lot in the slot (this offseason), and he’s used to playing a little more outside, but this is making him a little more dynamic. I think [head coach Matt LaFleur] 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 also talked up teammate Marquez Valdes-Scantling recently, so this could just be the veteran receiver instilling confidence in his teammates ahead of the season. However, keep in mind that Allison has been working a lot in the slot in the offseason, and he could become a more consistent target of Aaron Rodgers if he spends a lot of time inside during the season. Also note that LaFleur says he wants his receivers to be able to play all positions, so Allison isn't going to be exclusively in the slot. Valdes-Scantling and Allison appear to be the heavy favorites to be the No. 2 and No. 3 receivers for Green Bay in 2019.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

The Packers placed Geronimo Allison on injured reserve.

Allison is undergoing surgery for his groin injury, so this isn't a surprise. Being placed on injured reserve means Allison will miss at least the next eight games, so his only chance to return would be in the postseason if Green Bay makes it that far. Allison's season ends with 20 receptions for 303 yards and two touchdowns in five games. Rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who has been impressive the last few games, is locked into a huge role for the rest of the season. It'll likely be Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, and Valdes-Scantling as the top three receivers moving forward, with Equanimeous St. Brown mixing in.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison is expected to have surgery on a core muscle injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that Allison had seen a specialist, and it sounds like he will undergo surgery that puts his season in jeopardy. Rapoport says that the recovery is roughly six weeks, so perhaps Allison can either avoid injured reserve or be a candidate to return if he's placed on IR. The news makes Marquez Valdes-Scantling an excellent add in all leagues that he's still available in, and Randall Cobb should be locked into a significant role the rest of the way as Green Bay looks to turn things around at 3-4-1.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison may need core muscle surgery.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says Allison is dealing with a serious injury, so it sounds like his season is in danger. Allison is seeing a specialist, and the timeline should become more clear in the coming days. Allison is almost certainly going to miss multiple games with this injury.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

The Packers ruled Geronimo Allison (hamstring/groin) out for Week 9.

Allison was listed as doubtful, so this was fully expected. He presumably didn't travel to Foxboro for tomorrow night's matchup with the Patriots. It'll be Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Equanimeous leading the Packers receiving corps in a potential shootout.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (hamstring/groin) is listed as doubtful for Week 9.

A groin injury in practice wasn't a great sign for Allison's status, and he's now likely to miss Sunday night against the Patriots. Expect him to be officially ruled out on Sunday.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison suffered a groin injury in yesterday's practice.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says they'll see how Allison is tomorrow, and it sounds like he's in real danger of missing Sunday night's matchup with the Patriots. If Allison is out, Randall Cobb, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Equanimeous St. Brown would all get a boost behind No. 1 Davante Adams.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison catches one pass in Week 8.

Allison was back in the lineup after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury, and he gained 14 yards on his lone reception against the Rams. It's unclear if Allison's role wasn't big because it was his first game back, but he might be behind rookie receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown right now. It's difficult to trust Allison next week against the Patriots despite the potential for offensive fireworks that he gets heavily involved in.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is "on track" to play in Week 8.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says it "looks good" for both Allison and Randall Cobb (hamstring) to play against the Rams on Sunday. He says there's another threshold they need to pass, but they should both be ready to go in a potential shootout. We'll update you if Allison is listed on the Week 8 injury report when it's released tomorrow.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) was limited in today's practice.

Allison seems less certain to return than Randall Cobb, so be sure to check back on his status throughout the week. Allison has missed the last two games and then had the bye week to recover from his hamstring issue.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is inactive against the Niners.

Allison was limited in practice throughout the week and is not ready to go in tonight’s game. This will be the second straight missed game for Allison. And with Randall Cobb also out, rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown will again be counted on by Aaron Rodgers and the offense. The Packers have a bye next week, so Allison will hopefully be ready to go in Week 8.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night.

Randall Cobb (hamstring) is also listed as questionable for the matchup with the Niners, and their statuses likely won't be known until pre-game warmups on Monday. Allison remained limited in today's practice, and his Week 6 will status come down to how his hamstring is feeling on game day. If Allison and/or Cobb miss time, the combination of Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown will pick up most of the snaps for Green Bay.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) was officially limited in today's practice.

Allison is working his way back from the hamstring injury, and hopefully there's more clarity on his situation when the official injury report for Monday night's game is released tomorrow.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison has cleared concussion protocol.

This is great to hear after Allison missed last Sunday's game with his concussion. He's still dealing with his hamstring injury, though, and he's working with the rehab group for today's practice. We'll monitor his status the next two days ahead of the official injury report for Monday's game being released on Saturday.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (concussion) is inactive for Week 5.

Allison was unable to clear concussion protocol, so he's out of the lineup for Green Bay. With Randall Cobb (hamstring) also out, this means rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling will be the team's No. 2 receiver behind Davante Adams against the Lions. Valdes-Scantling is in the FLEX conversation as one of Aaron Rodgers' primary pass-catchers this week.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday.

Allison remains in the concussion protocol and did not practice all week, so he'll have to get cleared to play against the Lions. Hopefully Allison is feeling better soon and is able to play.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison remains in concussion protocol.

Davante Adams (calf) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) are also not practicing today, so rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, and J'Mon Moore will all handle most of the first-team work. Hopefully Allison is feeling better and can get cleared soon. Valdes-Scantling is the recommended fantasy pickup if you're targeting one of Green Bay's rookie receivers for your roster.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison remains in concussion protocol.

Allison is not practicing today, but he still has until Sunday to get cleared from the protocol and play against the Lions. We'll update you with Allison's status throughout the week.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison did not return against the Bills.

Allison went to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion in the fourth quarter, but Green Bay was in total control of the game, so maybe the team was just playing it safe. More information on Allison should be available in the next day or two. Allison had six receptions for 80 yards before leaving today's game.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison is being evaluated for a concussion.

Allison took a big hit in the third quarter and will have to clear concussion protocol to return against the Bills.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison scores in loss to the Redskins.

Allison caught two passes for 76 yards, including a 64-yard touchdown catch in the 31-17 defeat. Green Bay struggled to sustain drives in the second half against Washington, and overall, Allison's score was the only play of 20+ yards for the Packers. They'll look to get going against the suddenly rejuvenated Bills in Week 4, and Allison should see favorable coverage if Tre'Davious White is mostly on Davante Adams or Randall Cobb. Consider him a quality FLEX option.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison plays well in Week 2 tie.

Allison caught six passes for 64 yards, including a long of 22 yards. The 24-year-old is an every-week FLEX option as the No. 3 receiver in Green Bay's high-powered offense, and he will look to have another strong game against the Redskins next Sunday.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison catches 39-yard touchdown in amazing comeback victory.

Allison was on the receiving end of a dime from a hobbled Aaron Rodgers in the fourth quarter, and he finished with a 5/69/1 line in the 24-23 win against Chicago. He is better left on the bench next week against Minnesota, but Allison could have FLEX value if Rodgers is on the field in any capacity most weeks.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison catches two passes in Week 17.

Allison gained 15 yards on his two receptions. After being suspended to start the season, Allison played in the final 15 games of the year and put up a 23/253/0 stat line. There's a chance Allison has a bigger role next season, but we wouldn't count on it at the moment.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison catches one pass in Packers' loss.

Allison gained nine yards on his lone reception, and he also had a drop on a perfect throw by Brett Hundley. Allison could get an extended role if Jordy Nelson (shoulder) and Davante Adams (concussion) don't play in the season finale, but he's not a highly-reccomended fantasy option.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison caught five passes for 33 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Allison was forced into a bigger role after Davante Adams went down, but he made a crucial mistake with Green Bay down 31-24 and driving, as a lost fumble ended the game and possibly their playoff hopes. Whether or not Adams is back in Week 16, Allison wouldn't be a recommended fantasy play against the Vikings.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geranimo Allison catches all four targets in Week 14.

Allison gained 29 yards on his four receptions, as he was a reliable target for Brett Hundley against the Browns. He's a contributor to the Packers, but Allison's role isn't big enough to be a reliable fantasy option right now.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison caught one pass in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

It went for 14 yards. Allison isn't a fantasy option with the top-three receivers all healthy, especially with Aaron Rodgers out until at least Week 15.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison held out of the box score in Week 5 win.

Allison was probably picked up in some leagues with Davante Adams looking highly questionable, but Adams was able to get healthy and play the hero in a 35-31 win. Jordy Nelson sat out the team's game-winning drive, and despite no injury being announced, you'd think that is the only reason he wasn't out there, so his status is something to keep an eye on this week. If Nelson were to sit against Minnesota, Allison might be worth a pickup.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison catches clutch 72-yarder in overtime to set up game-winning field goal.

Allison led the team in receiving, with 122 yards on six receptions, as he played in three-WR sets with Randall Cobb inactive. The 23-year-old has flashed some talent in the past two years, but he won't be a fantasy option when Cobb returns to the lineup. Even if he's the third receiver again on Thursday night against the Bears, you can probably do better than Allison in your lineup.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geronimo Allison makes 2017 debut.

After serving a one-game suspension to start the year, Allison made his debut against Atlanta and had three receptions for 24 yards. Allison did have a pass intended for him intercepted, as it looked like he might’ve been looking for a back-shoulder throw. Jordy Nelson (quad) and Randall Cobb (shoulder) both left the game, so Allison would certainly be worth a look in your lineup if they were to be out for Week 3.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Second-year receiver Geronimo Allison catches one pass in preseason opener.

The reception for the Packers receiver went for ten yards. Despite his one-game suspension, Allison should have a role this season starting in Week 2.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Packers receiver Geronimo Allison has been suspended for one game, according to Adam Schefter.

The second-year receiver violated the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. This almost certainly comes from Allison's misdemeanor marijuana charge from earlier this year. Some character issues are reportedly part of the reason Allison went undrafted in 2016, so hopefully he can get it together off the field. He'll miss a big game in Week 1 versus Seattle.

Geranimo Allison scores in Packers' win.

Allison caught four passes for 91 yards and a touchdown as the Packers topped the Lions for the NFC North. The rookie wideout earned some Aaron Rodgers trust as he found a hole in the end zone on an Aaron Rodgers scramble and made a nice catch. Allison finishes his first season with 12 catches for 202 yards and two touchdowns. He should have a role in the postseason whether or not Randall Cobb returns.

Geronimo Allison | Lions WR

Geranimo Allison has solid game in place of Randall Cobb.

Allison finished the day with 66 yards on four receptions in relief of the injured Randall Cobb, who was out with an ankle injury. His size and solid hands seem to have given him the opportunity to succeed within the Packers offense. Unfortunately, with Cobb expected back for Week 17 against the Lions, Allison will likely return to the bench.
