Geronimo Allison caught 1-of-1 targets for 11 yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.

An UDFA, Allison came on surprisingly strong down the stretch for the Packers’ banged-up receiver corps. The Illinois product caught 12 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, with most of the production coming in must-win Week 16 and 17 games. Allison was quieter in the playoffs, but the 6-foot-3, 202-pound wideout went a long way towards securing a 2017 53-man roster spot. Allison’s long-term fantasy upside is limited by 4.67 wheels.

Randall Cobb caught 6-of-9 targets for 82 yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.

Cobb was the Packers’ No. 3 receiver this season, watching his down 2015 become a trend. Frequently banged up, Cobb was soundly out-produced by Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, and struggled to differentiate himself from even Geronimo Allison down the stretch. The one-time electric playmaker has busted extremely few big plays over the past two years, averaging 10.4 yards per catch. Amazingly still only 26, Cobb’s career is far from forked, but it’s fair to declare his 2014 an outlier. Cobb should be regarded as a lower-end WR3 in Dynasty leagues.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery rushed three times for 17 yards in the Pack's NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons before departing with a rib injury.

One of 2016’s most interesting stories, Montgomery had a few huge games, but also struggled mightily for consistency. The Pack did not trust the converted wideout to handle big workloads, a decision he justified by frequently suffering in-game nicks and bruises. Montgomery also dealt with complications stemming from his sickle-cell trait. Montgomery proved he can be a unique weapon out of the backfield, but the Pack will probably view him as a committee member heading into the offseason. Montgomery’s 2017 fantasy value will take a huge hit if he loses his wide receiver eligibility.

Jared Cook caught 7-of-12 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.

Playing on a one-year, $2.75 million contract, 29-year-old Cook had something resembling a breakout, catching 30 passes for 377 yards in 10 games. His numbers would have been much better had he not missed a whopping six games with a high-ankle sprain. Praised as an essential element of the Pack’s offense by Aaron Rodgers, Cook consistently made plays up the seam. Headed back to free agency, Cook, of course, has never been consistent, and turns 30 in April. The Pack will undoubtedly try to re-sign him, but Cook’s ever-rumored "upside" could entice a team to overpay on the open market.

Julio Jones caught 9-of-12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

Playing through what FOX's Jay Glazer described as three separate foot injuries, Jones dismantled the Packers' woeful secondary. The highlight was a 73-yard touchdown in the third quarter where Jones took ownership of Ladarius Gunter's soul. Jones is at far less than 100 percent health, but it hasn't been a problem on the field. With two weeks to heal up for Super Bowl LI, Jones is going to be a nightmare for either the Patriots or Steelers.

Davante Adams caught 3-of-3 targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.

Labeled one of the worst "every-day," so to speak, players in football as he played through an ankle injury last season, Adams had a breakout 2016. His 12 touchdown receptions were tied for second in football, and tripled his previous career total of four. Adams spiked his yards per catch to 13.3 after entering 2016 with an ugly 10.5 mark. Per Pro Football Focus, 407 of Adams’ 997 yards came after first contact. If there was an issue, it was Adams’ hands, as he muffed nine passes. Still somehow only 24, Adams has earned Aaron Rodgers’ trust and will be a legitimate top-15 option for 2017 after finishing as the WR7 (seriously) this year.

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-9 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.

Nelson probably shouldn’t have been playing after suffering a gruesome ribs injury in the Wild Card round, but looked no worse for the wear as he gutted out tough catches. Returning from a torn ACL, Nelson looked a step or two slower during his age-31 campaign — his 13.0 yards per catch was his lowest since 2010 — but he made up for it with his toughness and savvy. Nelson caught a league-high 14 touchdowns, and tallied the second-most receptions of his career (97). He remains one of the best players in football. Even at age 32, Nelson should be a WR1 in 2017.

Aaron Rodgers completed 27-of-45 passes for 287 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Packers' 44-21 loss to the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game.

After it initially looked like Rodgers’ 2015 funk was carrying over to another campaign, the best overall player in the league was transcendent the final two-thirds of the season. Rodgers posted a 30:3 TD:INT total over his final 11 starts, and tore up the Giants and Cowboys in the postseason before the Packers ran into the Falcons’ buzzsaw. Rodgers totaled 40 scores during the regular season, good for the second 40-TD season of his career, and 12th in league history. Now 33, Rodgers picked up a few soft-tissue injuries, but appeared in all 16 games for the third-consecutive year. If the Pack could ever get Rodgers a consistent running game or defense, they will win another Super Bowl.
