Throughout the season, the Rookie Report Card has covered some of the biggest rookies and not only looked at their performance to date – but also their long term upside. Now that the season has wrapped up and fantasy owners are looking towards the future, we have an opportunity to take one last look at the 2016 season and assess the rookies – A final report card if you will.
We covered 33 rookies throughout the season, including 13 receivers. Let’s put a bow on the season by taking one more look at those pass catchers’ first shot at make plays on Sundays, as well as a quick glimpse into their futures.
Geronimo Allison, WR GB
Season Stats: 12 receptions, 202 yards, two touchdowns
When I covered Allison a few weeks ago in the week 17 edition of the rookie report card, I concluded by writing that he isn’t a special player but he plays with one and anybody with a consistent role catching passes from Aaron Rodgers has the potential to be a dynasty asset. He’s not going to play in front of Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams or Randall Cobb but the Packers didn’t hesitate to make Allison a big part of their offense when there were injuries at the position. If anybody goes down in 2017, he’ll be the next man up. And that makes Allison worth a roster spot in most dynasty leagues.
