2020 Fantasy Outlook
It is hard to put much faith into someone who failed to capitalize on a prime opportunity to make a name for himself in Green Bay. While it's possible Allison may claim the No. 4 receiver role on the depth chart in Detroit, he'll be hard-pressed to carve out a more valuable situational role than the one Marvin Hall provides as a unique deep threat, and fifth-round rookie Quintez Cephus probably offers more upside than Allison as a possession receiver. Given the uncertainty around Allison's ability to make the team this fall, coupled with his lack of upside, he's probably not worth preseason consideration in any fantasy format. Read Past Outlooks

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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
Allison was off to a great start last year before tearing his groin and undergoing surgery. Through four games, he went 29-19-289-2 and finished with 15.2 YPC and 10.1 YPT on 30 targets. At 6-3, 202, Allison has good size, though his timed speed was poor - 4.67 40 at the 2016 combine. But Aaron Rodgers tends to target wideouts he trusts more so than athletic freaks, and other than Davante Adams, Allison is the receiver with whom Rodgers seems to have the best rapport now that Randall Cobb is in Dallas. Last year's rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown are also in the mix for the No. 2 role, but neither cemented himself as a mainstay in Allison's absence. After the Packers did nothing to address the position in free agency or the draft, Allison is a slight favorite for the job heading into training camp.
Allison made a splash early last year, snagging six passes for 122 yards in a Week 2 Packers victory. However, due to his standing on the depth chart and the eventual injury suffered by top QB Aaron Rodgers, Allison would go on to total just 14 receptions and 107 receiving yards after that. This year, the conditions have changed for Allison: Rodgers is back to his old self, and now only two receivers sit above him on the depth chart. Allison is going to have to fend off some challenges from rookies and second-year receivers, but if he can he'll open the season as the Packers' No. 3 wide receiver behind starters Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.
Allison entered training camp last season as an undrafted free agent, but he made a mark on the coaching staff and earned himself a spot on the practice squad. He continued to work his way up from there, eventually earning a spot on the active roster and finding paydirt in his first game. Before long, Allison was slotted in as the Packers' fourth receiver, and although his overall production was minimal, he did show good play-making potential, averaging 16.8 yards per reception. After his quality rookie year, Allison is the favorite to claim the fourth receiver spot heading into 2017, which would put him just an injury or two away from being a fantasy factor.
Allison is an undrafted free agent who has made his mark during training camp. He is competing for a roster spot despite quality depth at the wide receiver position for the Packers.
