Chargers | Keenan Allen looks to add speed

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 19:30:29 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) completed his first day of voluntary workouts Monday, April 18. He is looking to cut weight this offseason and add speed.

Fantasy Tip: Allen was on pace for a monster season in 2015 until he suffered a lacerated kidney in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. If he is able to add speed and stay healthy, he has a chance to be a Top 15 fantasy option at his position again, especially in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR).

Chargers | Extension talks coming for Keenan Allen

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 18:36:28 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen is expected to have extension talks begin after the 2016 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Allen was on track for a career year before injuries derailed his campaign. He has WR1 upside, but his injury history makes him better suited as a WR2.

Chargers | Keenan Allen will be fine in six weeks

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 15:02:43 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) is expected to make a full recovery in roughly six weeks, but because the Chargers are out of playoff contention, they chose to place him on the Reserve/Injured list, ending his season, according to sources. Allen had 67 catches for 725 yards and four touchdowns through eight games.

Fantasy Tip: With Allen now out of the picture for the rest of the year, Malcom Floyd and Stevie Johnson should be owned in all fantasy formats, with Johnson having more appeal in PPR leagues. Dontrelle Inman will also see his role increase significantly and should be picked up as a consolation prize if you miss out on the first two.

Chargers | Keenan Allen going to IR

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 11:14:54 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a lacerated kidney, according to sources. Allen is expected to make a full recovery, but he will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Suddenly Stevie Johnson ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) and Malcolm Floyd ($4,400, 8.8%) are good plays this week on FantasyScore. Those two and Dontrell Inman ($2,800, 5.6%) should see increased targets for the remainder of the season. Allen can be safely dropped in non-keeper leagues.

Chargers | Keenan Allen out for the year

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 10:56:30 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) will miss the rest of the season after undergoing a procedure on his kidney to stop the bleeding Monday, Nov. 2. He's expected to make a full recovery.

Fantasy Tip: You can drop Allen in single-year formats now. Philip Rivers will now lean heavily on Malcom Floyd and Stevie Johnson, and to a lesser extent, Dontrelle Inman. Both Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green are beat up right now, but when healthy, both could be playable on FantasyScore, too.

Chargers | Lacerated kidney for Keenan Allen

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 10:23:01 -0800

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) is suffering from a lacerated kidney, according to sources. He underwent a procedure Monday, Nov. 2, and the team is gathering more information at this time.

Fantasy Tip: While it's not yet official, this could definitely end Allen's season. Make plans to replace him in traditional leagues. Stevie Johnson and Malcom Floyd will be the main beneficiaries in the passing game with Allen out, and Johnson has more appeal in PPR formats. Dontrelle Inman is worth a look, too, in deeper leagues.

Chargers | Keenan Allen could be lost for season

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 10:07:26 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) had a kidney procedure that wasn't surgery Tuesday, Nov. 3, and he could be out for the rest of the year, according to league sources.

Fantasy Tip: This is a huge blow to Allen owners, as he had become a point-per-reception beast with 67 catches through eight games. You shouldn't outright drop him in traditional leagues just yet, but be prepared for the worst. Stevie Johnson and Malcom Floyd will see their values on the rise big time, with Johnson having a little more intrigue in PPR leagues. Dontrelle Inman is also worth a look if you lose out on the first two.

Chargers | Keenan Allen checked into hospital

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 15:10:52 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Keenan Allen (kidney) checked into a San Diego hospital after his symptoms worsened following the flight from Baltimore Sunday, Nov. 1. Allen is expected to miss "some time," according to head coach Mike McCoy. Allen was tied for third-most in NFL history with 67 catches through the first eight games of the season, trailing only Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (70) and Marvin Harrison (69).

Fantasy Tip: This is a potenitally serious injury for Allen that could keep him out at least a few weeks, if not more. Check back for updates on his condition as we know more. Malcom Floyd and Stevie Johnson should be picked up immediately if they are available in your leagues, with Johnson being more attractive in PPR leagues like FantasyScore. Dontrelle Inman is worth a peek in deeper formats.

Chargers | Keenan Allen to miss time?

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 13:35:11 -0800

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) is expected to "miss some time" with a kidney injury, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

Fantasy Tip: This will be a big blow to Allen owners, as he was one of the most valuable wide receivers so far this year in PPR leagues like FantasyScore. Immediately look for backup plans for Allen. Malcom Floyd, Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman all become candidates to add off the waiver wire, with Johnson having the most PPR appeal.

Chargers | No timetable for Keenan Allen

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 13:25:34 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) is dealing with a kidney injury, and there is no timetable for his return, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

Fantasy Tip: Kidney injuries can often be debilitating, so keep a close eye on Allen and make backup plans in case he isn't able to play in Week 9 against the Chicago Bears next Monday. Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman and Stevie Johnson would see a boost to their value if Allen needs to miss any time.
