WR Geronimo Allison - Green Bay Packers
|6-3, 196||Born: 1-18-1994||College: Illinois||Drafted: ---|
Week 14: vs Washington Redskins
FBG says: Good matchup. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing offense statistically have been a unit that has fallen off a cliff over the last four weeks. Over the last four weeks, Rodgers is averaging just 185 yards passing. While last week we can give the offense a pass as they controlled the entire game against the Giants, the other three games seem to have been a little rocky. The Packers are trying to figure out their personnel heading into the playoffs as we have seen Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow, and Jimmy Graham's playing time diminish over the last two weeks while Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger's playing time increase over the last two weeks. Outside of Davante Adams, the Packers have not had a consistent playmaker all season as they do not have a player who has more than 40 receptions and just one player over 400 yards which is Valdez-Scantling who did so on just 23 receptions. Lazard is the guy that they are hoping develops into the player that could be a consistent option moving forward for this team that is good enough to beat up the bad defenses such as Washington this week but has struggled when facing stiffer competition as they were dominated by San Francisco and the Chargers. The Redskins passing defense is the opposite of their run defense as while their stats say that they are a fairly solid passing defense as they have allowed the 18th most passing yards per game, the reality is that this defense is a below-average defense as they are allowing the 9th-most yards-per-attempt at 7.6 on the year. The leader of the Redskins defense is Quinton Dunbar who might be the best cornerback in football in 2019, but outside of Dunbar the Redskins are fairly thin as Fabien Moreau has been forced to move to the outside after playing the last two seasons in the slot, and Jimmy Moreland has been forced into playing time with Josh Norman being benched. It remains to be seen if the benching of Norman has any positive impact as in the two games that they have played they have played Jeff Driskel and Kyle Allen, so they will be in for a real test this week against Aaron Rodgers.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs NYG (3 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Geronimo Allison caught two passes for 20 yards on three targets in the Packers win over the Giants on Sunday. In a game where Rodgers threw for four touchdowns, Allison was once again very seldomly involved in the offense, having been passed by Alan Lazard as the Packers #2 wide receiver. Allison did come up big on a fourth and 10 play where he gained 15 yards and made a nice catch as Rodgers was in the process of being sacked.
2019 Week 9 vs LAC (2 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Geronimo Allison caught two passes for 21 yards on two targets in the Packers loss to the Charges on Sunday. Allison has become an afterthought in the Packers offense, and that trend started well before Adams returned to the lineup. Allison has battled several injuries over the last two weeks, and it is clear that any big games would be a complete outlier for Allison at this time.
2019 Week 8 vs KC (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Geronimo Allison caught one pass for seven yards on three targets in the Packers win over the Chiefs. Much like Valdes-Scantling, Allison has taken a backseat to Lazard and Jake Kumerow, the latter not playing a whole lot of snaps over the last several weeks but seems to make a play every week that continues to put him in the mix for targets. Allison Catching only one pass is a trend that continues to play out, and he has no weekly fantasy value at this time.
2019 Week 7 vs OAK (5 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)
Allison had a big play early that was called back because of a pre-snap whistle and a touchdown that was called back because he stepped out of bounds, but still contributed with some key third down catches.
2019 Week 6 vs DET (7 / 3 / 40 / 0 rec)
Geronimo Allison caught three passes for 40 yards on seven targets in the Packers win over the Lions on Monday. Allison was targeted a team-high seven times by Rodgers, but was unable to do much with those targets. He had a long catch of 21 yards when he was able to get behind the Lions zone coverage, but fell down right after the catch, which was disappointing because he could have turned it into a much bigger play.
2019 Week 5 vs DAL (6 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Geronimo Allison caught two passes for 28 yards on six targets in the Packers win over the Cowboys on Sunday. Like they say in the military, "stuff" runs downhill, and Allison was also a victim of Adams being out with an injury. Without Adams drawing coverage away from the opposing secondary and Valdes-Scalding threatening the Cowboys deep, they were able to keep Allison in check in the middle of the field. Allison has mostly run his routes out of the slot and the Cowboys were not going to let the Packers beat them in the intermediate passing game in the middle of the field. This could be a key reason why Jones was able to kill them in the running game as the Cowboys linebackers were dropping back in coverage when the Packers lined up in the shotgun. Allison's long play of the game came on a 22 yard catch where he was able to beat his man on a deep crossing route which set up a Jones five yard touchdown run. Allison has yet to make a big impact this season, but will need to step his game up if Adams is going to miss any more games.
2019 Week 4 vs PHI (4 / 3 / 52 / 1 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
Geronimo Allison caught three passes for 52 yards and a touchdown on four targets in the Packers loss to the Eagles. Allison did a lot of his damage, including his touchdown catch, on the final drive of the first half with the Packers in hurry up mode. Allison's touchdown catch came with the Packers facing a second and 10 from the Eagles 19 yard line. Rodgers took the snap under center and dropped back facing zone coverage with the Eagles linebackers dropping back into the intermediate passing zone. Rodgers looked as though he was going to take off and run, which froze an Eagles defender that was dropping back to the goal line in the middle of the field. As soon as that defender started to move towards him, Rodgers threw a pass on the run to Allison that was perfectly on target. Allison jumped up and made a routine catch that the Eagles had no chance of stopping. Through four games, Allison has eight catches on 11 targets for 77 yards and two touchdowns. The stats are not encouraging from a per game perspective, but Allison is catching a solid number of his targets and his two touchdown receptions are tied for most on the team.
2019 Week 2 vs MIN (5 / 4 / 25 / 1 rec)
Allison went up high to get a score, but was a liability on his other receptions, fumbling on one and failing to convert with passive running on another. He was a dumpoff pressure release valve on two of his catches and still isn't a key part of the pass offense.
