Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 8 vs LAR (1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Allison was a small part of the WR2/WR3 committee. He got open and created a little after the catch on his one reception.
2018 Week 4 vs BUF (11 / 6 / 80 / 0 rec)
Allison caught six passes for 80 yards on 11 targets in the Packers win on Sunday. The 11 targets set a career high for the third year wideout, and it comes as Allison is continuing to gain Rodgers trust in the passing game. With Randall Cobb on the sideline for this game, it was interesting to see the types of routes that Allison would be running, as it would serve as a good indication of what the Packers think Allison can do, as opposed to just being the third option behind Adams and Cobb. Allison did not disappoint, running more deep routes than we had seen in the first three games while coming up with a big catch deep in the third quarter. With Allison lined up out wide on the left side of the formation, Rodgers took a deep drop out of the shotgun. Allison ran a deep crossing route, and seeing how much room was out in front of him in the middle of the field, Allison kept running his route which gave Rodgers the perfect window to throw it to him in stride. The catch went for a 27 yard gain, and although it was the only deep ball he was able to come down with, it was encouraging to see Allison get targeted on four of his 11 targets down the field.
2018 Week 3 vs WAS (4 / 2 / 76 / 1 rec)
Allison caught two passes for 76 yards and a touchdown on four targets against the Redskins on Sunday. Allison was fifth in targets among Packers receivers, yet he still managed to lead the Packers in receiving yardage and record their only play over 20 yards on the day. With Allison lined up in slot-right, he ran an up-in-up double move that fooled both Josh Norma and the Redskins safety who bit on Rodgers pump fake. Allison took off up the middle of the field untouched, and scored a 64 yard touchdown, his second on the season. Allison's other catch was a 12 yard grab on third down, where Rodgers was chased out of the pocket and Allison worked back to him, a move that will surely help further the trust between Allison and Rodgers.
2018 Week 2 vs MIN (6 / 6 / 64 / 0 rec)
Geronimo Allison caught six passes for 64 yards on seven targets against the Vikings. Through two games, Allison has caught eleven passes for 132 yards and a touchdown, while carving out a role in the Packers offense along the way. Allison has proven to be a dependable target for Rodgers, catching all but two targets thrown his way. Allison's long gain of the day went for 22 yards and it showed off the fact that despite being a target for Rodgers mainly in the short passing game as a possession receiver, he has some wiggle to his game and is capable of picking up yards after the catch. Allison ran a 10 yard comeback route along the right sideline and as he caught the ball, he made an impressive fake with his inside shoulder, allowing him to shake his defender and turn the ball upfield along the sideline. He wasn't done there though, as Allison juked the next defender, cut back to the middle of the field and gained another 14 yards after the catch. In addition to having a solid game as a receiver, Allison also made his presence felt on special teams, recording a blocked punt in the first quarter that Green Bay recovered for a touchdown.
2018 Week 1 vs CHI (8 / 5 / 69 / 1 rec)
Geronimo Allison caught five passes for 69 yards and a touchdown on eight targets against the Bears on Sunday. Allison had been stuck on the sidelines for the first two years of his career, before the departure of Jordy Nelson opened up a spot for him as the Packers #3 wide receiver. In his first game as a starter, Allison played very well and caught the touchdown that started the Packers comeback in the 4th quarter. Allison saw single coverage on the right sideline and ran a straight go-route, managing to get a step in front of his defender. Rodgers was able to create time in the pocket and threw an absolute dart to Allison deep on the right side of the end zone. Allison made a veteran move of extending his right leg just prior to the catch in order to get his right foot down short of the back of the end zone, and then drag his left foot behind him. With as much pressure as there was on that one play, Allison deserves a lot of credit for coming down with the touchdown catch that started the Packers 4th quarter comeback. The Packers have sustained three fantasy worthy wide receivers in years past, and it looks as though Allison could be heading for that role, as he has certainly gained Rodgers trust.
