5. Geronimo Allison

Geronimo Allison got off to a fast start in the 2018 season by racking up 20 receptions for 303 yards and two touchdowns. Although it doesn’t seem like much, it was a career high in yardage and touchdowns for the young receiver. It was also the first time he was getting exclusive playing time in the offense. Unfortunately, he suffered a season ending injury and missed the final 11 games of the season so he was unable to build on that momentum.

Fast forward to 2019 where he is healthy once again and it’s been a different story. Through the same amount of games, Allison has just 10 receptions for 104 yards and two receiving touchdowns. He hasn’t been able to create separation from the corners and his playing time has suffered as a result.

Green Bay needs Allison, or any receiver really, to step up and play to their ability. Davante Adams has been their only consistent receiving threat and he missed last week due to a turf toe. There’s no telling when Adams will return, so the Packers need Allison to play like it’s 2018.
