Geronimo Allison: Won't play in 2020

Allison opted out of the 2020 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Allison flashed occasionally in four seasons in Green Bay, but he only surpassed 300 yards in one of them, combined for six touchdowns and had 89 catches in 46 games. He was set to vie with Marvin Hall and rookie Quintez Cephus for slotting near the bottom of the regular-season roster, so Allison's decision likely makes the Lions' own roster decisions easier for the upcoming campaign.

Geronimo Allison: Signs with rival

Allison agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: Allison arrives from Green Bay where he was used primarily in two- and three-wide sets, sporting a receiving line of 34-287-2 for the 2019 season. The Lions already have proven options such as Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones (ankle) and Danny Amendola on the roster, so it appears that Allison will be battling Marvin Hall (foot) for the No. 4 receiver spot in Detroit heading into the 2020 season.

Geronimo Allison: Light production in 2019

Allison recorded 34 receptions for 287 yards and two touchdowns over 16 regular-season games in 2019.

Analysis: Allison lined up as the No. 3 wide receiver in the NFC championship and for most of the season, but he and Marquez Valdes-Scantling were passed up for the No. 2 role by undrafted free agent Allen Lazard. It was another unproductive season for Allison, who will be an unrestricted free agent in March, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Packers can bring him back cheap again. With a loaded wide-receiver draft in 2020, though the Packers could let him walk in free agency.

Geronimo Allison: Clear for championship game

Allison (illness) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game in San Francisco, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: As was the case with his teammates, Allison seems to have got over his bout with the flu in 48 hours, going from a DNP on Wednesday to full participant to close out the week. He hasn't surpassed 30 yards receiving since Week 7 but nonetheless has been targeted 3.3 times per game (including playoffs) this season.

Geronimo Allison: Elevates to 'limited' Thursday

Allison (illness) was limited at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Allison is the most recent Packer to come down with an illness, sitting out Wednesday before getting in some work one day later. He'll look to ditch the designation entirely by week's end.

Geronimo Allison: Dealing with illness

Allison didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness.

Analysis: A flu bug has been going around the Packers' locker room for about a week, impacting the likes of rookie running back Dexter Williams, fullback Danny Vitale and starting right tackle Brian Bulaga. Allison is only the most recent victim, but considering the illness has cycled through in about 48 hours in the other cases, he likely will be fine by the weekend. Friday's injury report will provide the last word on his availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at San Francisco.

Geronimo Allison: One reception against Seahawks

Allison was targeted once and had one reception for 11 yards in Sunday's divisional round win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: Allison was on the field for just 20 of a possible 64 snaps Sunday, which limited his chances to catch the football. Don't expect his role to change much in next weekend's NFC Championship Game.

January 13, 2020 10:13 AM EST

Geronimo Allison: Three receptions against Lions

Allison was targeted four times and caught three passes for 17 yards in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Analysis: Allison bounced back from a zero-catch Week 16 with his most receptions since Week 12. He heads into the playoffs as the Packers' third receiver but has not topped 20 yards in a game since Week 9.

December 31, 2019 10:22 AM EST

Geronimo Allison: Goes without catch in Week 16

Allison was targeted twice but did not catch a pass in Monday's victory over the Vikings.

Analysis: Allison was on the field for 33 offensive plays, but he was held without a catch for the first time since Week 1. He finished with the third-most snaps among Packers wideouts for the second time in as many weeks, and with Allen Lazard coming on, he figures to stay in that spot. Packers receivers will face a Lions defense in Week 17 that has been beaten by opposing wideouts all season, but it's unlikely Allison will be involved enough to exploit the matchup.

Geronimo Allison: Snap count slips in Week 15

Allison was targeted four times and caught two passes for 19 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Analysis: Allison had more receptions and yards than he did in Week 14, but he still has not topped 40 yards in a game since putting up a season-high 52 yards in Week 4. He had at least been regularly seeing the second-most snaps among Packers receivers, but he did not even do that in Week 15, finishing third behind Davante Adams and Allen Lazard. He will head into Week 16 as a third receiver averaging fewer than 20 yards per contest over the last 10 games, which certainly is not appealing for fantasy purposes.

December 16, 2019 9:55 AM EST

Geronimo Allison: Gets in full practice Thursday

Allison (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

Analysis: Allison upgraded from Wednesday's limited showing, clearing his health in one fell swoop. He's maintained a consistent workload all season, ranking first among Packers wide receivers with a 60.9-percent share of the offensive snaps. Health has helped him along the way, as well as hindered Davante Adams (56.9 percent), who went from FP on Wednesday to a limited participant Thursday.

December 12, 2019 2:35 PM EST

Geronimo Allison: Dealing with knee injury

Allison (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Allison has received at least 50 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps in 10 of 13 games this season, including each of the last seven. No matter, he's put up just 29 catches (on 45 targets) for 251 yards and two touchdowns to date. With a knee injury in tow, his status will be one to monitor as the weekend approaches.

December 11, 2019 1:40 PM EST

Geronimo Allison: Limited to one reception

Allison was targeted once and caught an 11-yard pass in Sunday's victory over Washington.

Analysis: Allison played the second-most snaps among Packers receivers for the fourth game in a row, but as was the case the previous three weeks, that resulted in only minimal production. The Packers take on a Bears team in Week 15 that has struggled to slow opposing receivers of late, but a glance at Allison's game log provides little reason to believe he will take advantage.

December 9, 2019 10:19 AM EST

Geronimo Allison: Minimal output again

Allison was targeted three times and caught two passes for 20 yards in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Analysis: Allison finished second among Packers wide receivers in snaps for the third game in a row and both his catches picked up first downs in key spots, but his final output still did not help fantasy players all that much. Allison is averaging just 2.2 receptions for 12.6 yards over his last five contests, which will not inspire much confidence in him from those weighing options at the wide receiver position in Week 14.

December 2, 2019 10:06 AM EST

Geronimo Allison: Three receptions in defeat

Allison was targeted four times and caught three passes for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: The four targets were the most Allison saw since Week 7, but he did little with his opportunities, and finished with a single digit in the receiving yardage department for the third time in four games. Allison started Sunday's game and finished second among Packers wide receivers in snaps, and he does have a nice matchup his next time out against a Giants defense that struggles with opposing pass catchers. However, given Allison's recent ouptut, fantasy players in need of wide receiver help for key Week 13 matchups will likely want to look elsewhere.

November 25, 2019 9:35 AM EST

Geronimo Allison: Doubtful for Sunday

Allison (chest/concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Allison was held out of every practice this week after he suffered a concussion in Monday's loss to the Lions. With Davante Adams (toe) ruled out and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee/ankle) headed for a game-day decision, the Packers will need significant contributions from some combination of Jake Kumerow, Allen Lazard, Ryan Grant and Darrius Shepherd.

October 18, 2019 1:14 PM EST

Geronimo Allison: Misses another practice session

Allison (chest/concussion) isn't practicing Friday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Absent from practice throughout the week, Allison doesn't seem to have much shot at playing in Sunday's game against the Raiders. He may be joined on the sideline by fellow wide receivers Davante Adams (toe) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee/ankle).

October 18, 2019 9:24 AM EST

Geronimo Allison: No practice Thursday

Allison (concussion/chest) was held out of practice Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Allison has yet to receive clearance for on-field work as he works his way through the concussion protocol, a bad sign for his Week 7 availability. Aside from Allison, the Packers' receiving corps is rife with injured players, namely Davante Adams (toe), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee), Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Robert Tonyan (hip). All five were DNPs on Thursday, so Friday's injury report will be telling as it pertains to Aaron Rodgers' (knee) pass-catching options Sunday versus the Raiders.

October 17, 2019 3:02 PM EST

Geronimo Allison: No activity Wednesday

Allison (concussion/chest) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Allison took the brunt of a hit from Lions defensive back Tracy Walker on Monday night, suffering a concussion and chest injury in the process. Unless he makes some noticeable progress through the protocol for head injuries Thursday and/or Friday, he won't be a candidate to suit up Sunday versus the Raiders. The Packers have a number of injuries in the receiving corps at the moment, with Davante Adams (toe) missing the past two games and Marquez Valdes-Scantling picking up ankle and knee injuries Monday.

October 16, 2019 4:35 PM EST

Geronimo Allison: Officially ruled out

Allison (chest, concussion) has officially been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Lions.

Analysis: Allison went back to the locker room in the second half and he is still being evaluated for a concussion, in addition to a chest injury he suffered in the contest. The Packers will have four wideouts for the remainder of the contest: Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow, Darrius Shepherd and Allen Lazard. Look for more updates on Allison's status to come when the team returns to practice Wednesday.
