Allison suffered a concussion in the fourth preseason game.

News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Allison is poised to take up some of the snaps and targets vacated by any injured Packers receiver. It doesn't sound like Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb are dealing with serious issues, but the door is still creaking open for Allison. With Aaron Rodgers throwing the ball, we're always interested in adding any Packers pass catcher who could get regular work.

Week 3: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All WR vs CIN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers pass attack amassed 343 passing yards and two touchdowns last week. Rodgers got off to a very sluggish start last week with only 85 passing yards, an interception, and a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in the first half. He picked it up in the second half though, especially in the fourth quarter once the game was already well out of hand--amassing 149 yards and both of his touchdowns during this garbage time. Rodgers spread the ball around all night as Davante Adams led the way with eight receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown. Tight end Martellus Bennet was Rodgers most targeted receiver, but only hauled in 5-of-11 targets for 47 yards. Randall Cobb has a solid showing but was forced to exit in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury. His status is looking positive for this week though. The big story for the Packers right now is Jordy Nelson's injured quadriceps, forcing him out of last week's game early in the first quarter before amassing a single catch. As of early in the week, it looks like Nelson's status for Week 3 is still up in the air. Cincinnati's defense has been statistically solid against the pass this season, allowing only six yards per pass attempt and 209 total passing yards. Although most of this can be attributed to the Bengals inept offense that made it easy for teams to protect their lead by rushing the ball, this defensive unit actually has actually played well on their limited opportunities to defend against the pass. From a pass-rushing perspective, the Bengals own a 9.8% sack rate--eight highest in the league. Geno Atkins has been solid on the interior of that line, applying consistent pressure on the quarterback--including six pressures and two sacks last week against the Texans. Cornerback is a weakness for the Bengals, but they have a solid safety over the top in Shawn Williams. The Packers offensive as a whole will by far be the Bengals toughest test of the season, as Aaron Rodgers is a mismatch for almost any defense.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs ATL (5 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)

While Allison saw a lot of time on the field, playing 61 snaps, he didn't get much in the way of targets. Unfortunately for all involved, one of those targets was an interception near the end of the first half. It's hard to tell exactly what went wrong--the ball was either terribly overthrown (it honestly looked like Aaron Rodgers was targeting Atlanta's Desmond Trufant) or Allison was not running hard on the route. We're leaning towards the latter, as the receiver saw just three targets the rest of the game.

Packers | Geronimo Allison making strides (Sat Sep 16, 12:36 AM) - Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison has 'made the leap' in his second year, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'He's bigger, stronger, playing with a ton of confidence,' McCarthy said. 'He can play all four positions in the wide receiver room, and he's a playmaker.'

Our View: Allison is a dynasty prospect we are monitoring closely. Undrafted out of Illinois last year, Allison served a one-game suspension to begin this season. Now that he's back, Allison will work into the mix as the Packers no4 wide receiver behind Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.
