Chargers | Keenan Allen looked explosive

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 07:34:24 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) looked quick and explosive in offseason work. He's due for a monster season, according to beat writer Eric D. Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has played just nine games the last two years and is coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The 25-year-old has ample upside and ample injury risk as a WR2 in fantasy.

Chargers | Keenan Allen already up to speed

Thu, 18 May 2017 20:21:19 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) is already running routes at full speed in practice, and he said Tuesday, May 16, that he surprised himself with how well he is able to compete.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has WR1 upside, especially in PPR formats, but he should be drafted as a WR2 because of his extensive injury history.

Chargers | Mike Williams to open up offense

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:54:49 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Mike Williams' presence will help open up the offense, according to WR Keenan Allen.

Fantasy Tip: The Chargers already had some weapons in the passing game, so Williams will likely have a limited role as a rookie. He will be a late-round pick with upside in redraft leagues, but he is worthy of a first-round pick in rookie drafts.

Chargers | Keenan Allen nearing full health

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 13:16:17 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) said he's around 85 percent healthy but feels good with his rehabilitation process.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has been bit by a pretty big injury bug the last couple years, missing 23 games in that span. He's the Chargers' best receiver and one of the best receivers in the NFL, he just can't stay on the field. The high-risk, high-reward nature of Allen puts him in low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 territory.

Chargers | Keenan Allen still not 100 percent

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 20:27:38 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) is still not 100 percent and he won't be a full participant when the Chargers begin organized team activities April 3. However, Allen did say he's doing "almost everything," including running and cutting, and expects to be ready for the start of training camp in July.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has exhibited WR1 upside since entering the league in 2013, but unfortunately, significant injuries have limited him to just nine games combined over the last two seasons. The 24-year-old should be at or close to full health entering the new campaign, but given his recent history, he remains an injury risk. If he can just stay healthy, Allen has the potential to be one of the top-10 receivers in all of pro football.

Chargers | Keenan Allen recovering on schedule

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 09:23:30 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) is on track in his rehabilitation from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to general manager Tom Telesco. A more defined timetable on Allen's recovery is expected in April.

Fantasy Tip: Allen is Philip Rivers' favorite target when he's on the field; the problem is Allen has only been on the field in nine games the last two seasons. Like his teammate Danny Woodhead, Allen is a high risk, high reward player. Drafting him may be too risky of a proposition if Allen's average draft position is as a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2.

Chargers | Keenan Allen may be ready for workouts

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 13:44:02 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) recently started to work out on a treadmill and expects to be ready for organized team activities during the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Allen should be ready for the start of the 2017 season and probably will regain the job as the No. 1 receiver for the Chargers. He should be considered a No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues if he is healthy.

Chargers | Keenan Allen out for the season

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 13:34:02 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 12, with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He is out for the season.

Fantasy Tip: It's one of the biggest losses the Chargers could have suffered, especially after Allen missed half of last season. With Allen out, Antonio Gates, Travis Benjamin and Danny Woodhead should see upticks in targets. Tyrell Williams is worth a pickup off waivers after catching two passes for 71 yards in Week 1.

Chargers | San Diego offense headed for another dip?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 09:19:26 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) will likely need to be replaced by committee in the opinion of QB Philip Rivers after the wideout reportedly tore the ACL in his right knee in a Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Last season, the Chargers averaged 24 points with Allen in the lineup before a lacerated kidney that ended his year. After his exit, San Diego averaged 16 points the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The good news - if there is any - is the Chargers have more young and/or proven talent at receiver in 2016. There is some thought San Diego will bring back James Jones, who they cut during training camp, but owners can expect Travis Benjamin, Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams to see more targets on a regular basis. Allen's injury should also lock Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead into their respective TE1 and high-end RB2 designations in PPR leagues.

Chargers | Keenan Allen may have torn ACL

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 12:31:38 -0700

The San Diego Chargers believe WR Keenan Allen (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during their Week 1 game. He will undergo more tests to determine the severity of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Allen would miss the rest of the 2016 season if he is diagnosed with a torn ACL, so owners should look for replacements on the waiver wire. Travis Benjamin, Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams will receive bigger roles in the passing game with Allen sidelined. Benjamin could be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues, while Inman and Williams can be flex options.
