You always want a Green Bay Packers wide receiver on your fantasy team if you can have one. Having Aaron Rodgers chucking the ball always leaves room for a high ceiling, but the return of one wideout lowers the potential of another. 


Green Bay has struggled to keep their receivers healthy this season but will see the return of a huge target as Randall Cobb is expected to return against the Los Angeles Rams.


That's great news for Packers fans and potentially bad news for Geronimo Allison fantasy football owners. 

Having another target machine severely limits Allison's potential.


Neither of these receivers holds a candle to Davante Adams but Cobb gets a large share of targets in the slot. He struggled to play through a hamstring injury during the second and third weeks of the season and still managed to rack up 27 targets during the three games he's played compared to the 18 of Allison. 


Allison doesn't have an injury designation at the moment and could thrive while Cobb is eased back into games, but that can't be expected to occur for long. 

Allison is still ownable and even borderline startable in all fantasy formats, but his ceiling hangs on his catching a touchdown or not. It's always a good bet when you're on an offense led by Aaron Rodgers, but Cobb certainly cuts into his numbers by suiting up.
