The Green Bay Packers finally moved on from Mike McCarthy last December, opting to hire Matt LaFleur as their new head coach. With a new offense comes new opportunities, and Geronimo Allison could be poised to take advantage of this in a major way.

With just 303 receiving yards and two touchdowns, Allison wasn't exactly dominant last season, but recent reports out of Packers' camp indicate that he could be in for a breakout campaign in 2019. He's reportedly been working out of the slot, which could make him a more valuable asset in PPR leagues.

Allison's average draft position (ADP) is currently No. 47 among wide receivers, according to FantasyPros.com, and he looks well worth a late-round flier at that range.

While Marquez Valdes-Scantling is looking like the No. 2 WR alongside Davante Adams, playing with someone as talented as Aaron Rodgers should create enough opportunity for three receivers to thrive in Green Bay's offense.

If all goes according to plan, Allison could be a decent source of touchdowns and receptions next season, making him a high-upside target, particularly in PPR leagues.
