The Chargers activated Keenan Allen from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Allen missed last week while on the COVID list, but he'll be back for Thursday's Week 15 matchup against the Chiefs. You can reinsert Allen into fantasy lineups for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Keenan Allen (COVID-19) is out for Week 14.
Allen won't be able to get cleared in time for Sunday, but the team is hopeful that Mike Williams can test negative again tomorrow in order to play after being a close contact to his teammate. If so, Williams would be a no-doubt WR1 upside with big-time upside versus the Giants. The status of Allen can't be taken for granted in Week 15 with the Chargers taking on the Chiefs next Thursday night.
Keenan Allen has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Allen now has six days to get cleared for Week 14. Hopefully Allen is feeling OK and can rejoin his teammates soon.
The Chargers placed Keenan Allen on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Allen is out for Week 17, so his season ends with 100 receptions for 992 yards and eight touchdowns in 14 games. While Allen missed the final two games and finished eight yards short of 1,000 yards, he hit the 100-reception mark for the third time in four seasons (catching 97 passes in the other year). With Justin Herbert at quarterback, Allen should be one of the safest picks in 2021 fantasy drafts.
Keenan Allen (hamstring) is officially inactive for the Chargers.
Allen tried to push through the hamstring injury a couple of Thursdays ago before ultimately sitting most of the game, and now he’s out for Week 16. Justin Herbert will also be down Hunter Henry (reserve/COVID-19), but he’s shown the ability to spread the ball around and has had success targeting just about everyone in the LA offense.
Keenan Allen (hamstring) is officially active for Thursday night.
Allen is at less than 100% and will reportedly be limited against the Raiders, but the Pro Bowl receiver has a crafty enough game that he can still do some damage at less than full strength. There’s risk, but Allen isn’t a bad option in Week 15 fantasy lineups.
Keenan Allen (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday night.
We would guess that Allen is going to play, but a short week for a soft tissue injury makes him a risk of decoy and/or setback status—so he might need to be downgraded to more of a borderline WR1/WR2 rather than a top-five option. Allen being held out would obviously be a significant downgrade for Justin Herbert.
Keenan Allen (hamstring) is listed as a non-participant in today's practice.
This explains why Allen missed part of the end of yesterday's win over the Falcons. With the Chargers playing on Thursday night to kickoff Week 15, there's some concern with Allen for the second week of the fantasy playoffs.
Keenan Allen (illness) is officially active against the Raiders.
Allen was dealing with a sore throat, so it’s not surprising that he’s out there for today’s Week 9 contest. You can lock Allen into fantasy lineups as an excellent option as usual.
Keenan Allen (illness) will play today, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
This was the expectation after Allen reportedly tested negative for COVID-19, but worth noting nonetheless since Los Angeles plays in the late-afternoon slate. Allen will be a solid WR1 once again.
Keenan Allen (illness) has been added to the Week 9 injury report.
It appears this would be a non-COVID related illness for Allen, who is now questionable for tomorrow against the Raiders. The bad news for fantasy owners is that the Chargers don't kickoff until the late-afternoon games, so it's possible Allen's status is unclear before you'd like to get your lineup set for Week 9.
Keenan Allen will play in Week 7.
Allen is off the final injury report of the week, so, as expected, his back issue looks like it won't be a problem this Sunday against the Jaguars. You can instantly get Allen into fantasy lineups off the Chargers' bye week.
Keenan Allen (back) officially remains limited in practice.
Again, Allen is expected to be fine for Sunday against the Jaguars, but we'll see how he's listed on the final Week 7 injury report when it's out tomorrow.
Keenan Allen (back) was officially limited in today's practice.
Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn says that he thinks Allen will be fine for Sunday against the Jaguars, so a limited practice to start the week is a fine sign. Ideally, Allen will work his way up to full participation by Friday.
Keenan Allen dealt with lower back spasms last night.
With the Chargers now having their bye week after schedule changes, the hope is that Allen will be ready to go when the team returns to action in Week 7.
Keenan Allen (back) has been ruled out for the rest of tonight.
While Allen appeared jovial on the sidelines in the first half while trying to stretch out, the Chargers are ruling him out as the second half begins. Hopefully this isn't a long-term issue, but at least the Chargers have their bye next week, which should hopefully give Allen enough time to get back on the field in Week 7. Before leaving tonight's game, Allen had two receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown.
Keenan Allen (back) is questionable to return for the Chargers.
Allen was getting stretched out on a trainers table, and he appears to have his back now wrapped on the sidelines. The positive news is Allen was seen smiling on the sideline and appears to be in good spirits, so hopefully he's able to get back into the game soon.
The Chargers are signing Keenan Allen to a four-year extension.
The extension is worth $80 million, so it's a massive deal for the Pro Bowl receiver. Allen has been one of the league's most productive receivers over the years, and the Chargers clearly expect him to keep it going despite no Philip Rivers under center for the team. Expect Allen to get a heavy dose of targets from Tyrod Taylor in 2020.
Keenan Allen (hamstring) is officially active for Week 8.
Allen injured his hamstring in practice during the week, but he's going to try to tough it out and is giving it a go today against the Bears. He's expected to be limited and could have trouble finishing the game if the hamstring doesn't respond well. He certainly has upside as a great player, but consider Allen more of a risky FLEX option as opposed to his usual status as an excellent fantasy option.
Keenan Allen (hamstring) is officially questionable for Week 8.
Allen is a gametime decision to face the Bears this Sunday after his hamstring injury popped up, but the good news is it's an early kickoff for Los Angeles. Allen's status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.
Keenan Allen (hamstring) officially did not practice today.
Allen practiced fully yesterday and was not listed with a hamstring issue, so this appears to have popped up ahead of today's practice. We would think Allen will still play in Week 8, but his status should not be locked in after this missed practice. The final injury report will be released tomorrow, and hopefully Allen is at least limited in the final practice of the week.
Keenan Allen goes off in Chargers' Week 3 loss.
Allen caught 13 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns while adding one carry for three yards in LA's home loss to Houston. Allen was basically uncoverable throughout the afternoon, routinely getting open and making tough catches and chunk plays for his team. Through three games, Allen has put up lines of 8/123/1, 8/98, and 13/183/3, and the leg injury to tight end Hunter Henry has likely led to Philip Rivers making Allen even more heavily targeted. Allen is about as good as it gets for a fantasy WR1 one right now, and he's an obvious must-start in Week 4 despite a matchup with cornerback Xavien Howard.
Keenan Allen is dealing with an ankle injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Schefter says the injury is "not considered serious," so it sounds like this could be nothing to get too concerned about. Allen will likely miss the rest of the preseason in an effort to ensure he's ready to go for Week 1, but we'll track his status over the next several days. This could knock Allen's ADP down slightly, especially for those in leagues that are drafting early.
Keenan Allen scores in the Divisional Round.
Allen caught two passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' playoff loss to the Patriots. The touchdown was on LA's first offensive drive, as he beat All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore on a double-move against zone coverage and got wide-open for a deep ball. Allen also caught two-point conversion on a crossing route. The matchup with Gilmore was obviously difficult, but Allen is a great receiver that isn't easy to contain. The emergence of Mike Williams could be a slight concern in 2019, but Allen should offer a high floor in fantasy drafts this summer entering his age 27 season
Keenan Allen catches four passes in the Wild Card Round.
Allen gained 37 yards on his four receptions in the Chargers' playoff victory at Baltimore. He also recovered an onside kick at the end of the game to avoid giving the Ravens strong field position as they attempted to complete a comeback. The Ravens did a good job on the Pro Bowl receiver throughout the game, and things might not get much easier for Allen if he's shadowed by All-Pro Stephon Gilmore next week against the Patriots in Foxboro.
Keenan Allen catches four passes against the Broncos.
Allen gained 64 yards on his four receptions in the Chargers' Week 17 win, brining the star receiver's regular season total to 97 receptions for 1,196 yards and six touchdowns along with nine carries for 75 yards. The beginning of the season and the final three weeks of the season (including a Week 15 shortened by a hip injury) were disappointing, but Allen was as good as anyone in the middle of the year, including a streak of five straight games with a touchdown from Weeks 10-14. Allen will now face the Ravens in the postseason on Sunday.
Keenan Allen catches five passes in Week 16.
Allen gained 58 yards on his five receptions in the Chargers' Saturday night loss to the Ravens. Early in the game, Allen had a big gain down the right sideline that was called back because of a questionable offensive pass interference call that he and Philip Rivers were not happy about. Then on the next play, he was called for a penalty after he wasn't set while still complaining to officials about the call, wiping out a would-be third-down conversion by Mike Williams. This was a tough matchup for Allen in fantasy title weeks, and his regular season might be over if the Chargers rest their starters in Week 17 while locked into the AFC's No. 5 seed.
Keenan Allen (hip) is officially active for tonight's game.
Allen was thought to be ready to face the Ravens, and he indeed will be out there. This is a tough matchup, but fantasy owners can safely fire up Allen as a WR1 option with fantasy titles on the line. The presence of "Slayer" in the lineup, along with Melvin Gordon returning, is an obvious boost for Philip Rivers and the offense overall.
Keenan Allen (hip) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday night.
Allen is reportedly expected to play in the Week 16 matchup with the Ravens, but it's not lock at this point. The good news is the Chargers play on Saturday night before every game but one this week, so his status will be known by around 6:50 PM ET on Saturday night. If active, Allen would be a WR1 as usual despite a tough matchup against Baltimore.
Keenan Allen (hip) was officially limited in today's practice.
This is a good step in the right direction for Allen after he missed yesterday's practice. Allen is thought to have a good chance of playing against the Ravens, and the final Week 16 injury report with Allen's official game status will be out tomorrow with the Chargers playing on Saturday night.
Keenan Allen (hip) did not practice today.
Allen was forced out of last Thursday's game with a hip injury, but he is expected to return this week along with Melvin Gordon (knee) for a Saturday night clash against the Ravens. He is no sure thing and might not even get in a practice until late in the week, though, so fantasy owners should at least have a backup plan in mind.
Keenan Allen's injury is a hip pointer, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
This is probably good news, as there is not structural damage to Allen. Hip pointers can be very painful, but the injury isn't likely to force Allen to miss much more time. He should be considered questionable for next Saturday night against the Ravens, and we expect he should be good to go for the Chargers in the postseason. Fantasy owners would love to have him in championship weeks, though.
Keenan Allen (hip) did not return to Thursday night's win over the Chiefs.
Allen left the game in the first half, re-entered, and the left again before sitting on the sidelines the rest of the way. He didn't catch a pass, but perhaps his chances of suiting up for Week 16—against a tough Baltimore defense—are increased now that the Chargers have a real shot at the AFC West and potentially the No. 1 seed in the conference. If Allen does end up playing, he would probably remain a solid WR1 for the fantasy championship.
Keenan Allen leaves game with apparent hip injury.
Allen was injured on a fantastic one-handed attempt on a pass to the end zone on the Chargers' last drive, and then he returned in the middle of their next drive and left after one play. It looks like Allen might not be able to go for the rest of tonight, but hopefully he's able to get back out there. We'll update you as more information becomes available. Keep in mind the Chargers might take a cautious approach, as the Chiefs would remain in first-place in the AFC West no matter the result of tonight's game.
Keenan Allen extends touchdown streak to five games as Los Angeles defeats Cincinnati, 26-21.
Allen caught five passes for 78 yards and a score, which came from 14 yards away in the first quarter on a nice boundary catch in the end zone. He also rushed once for no gain. The 26-year-old is now over 1,000 yards on the season, and over the past five games, he has gone for lines of 6/57/1, 9/89/1, 7/72/1, 14/148/1, and 5/78/1. Allen is one of the hottest players in the league and should remain a high-floor WR1 for Thursday night's matchup against the Chiefs, who he stung for 108 yards and a score in the opener.
Keenan Allen goes off as the Chargers comeback to beat the Steelers in primetime.
Philip Rivers threw 36 passes against the Steelers, and Allen received more than half of them with a whopping 19 targets in the Week 13 victory. Allen caught 14 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown along with a two-point conversion. Allen basically terrorized whoever was on him—including linebackers often times—throughout the game, getting open for his quarterback to hit him for positive yardage. The score was on an in-breaking route in the end zone that probably should’ve been intercepted, but two defenders collided while the ball popped into the air for Allen to dive for and secure for a touchdown. Allen now has a touchdown in four straight weeks, and hopefully you remained patient with him after a slow start to the season. He’ll be one of the better WR1 option next week to open the fantasy playoffs against a struggling Bengals pass defense.
Keenan Allen leads Los Angeles in receiving as Philip Rivers has most efficient day of career.
Allen caught seven-of-seven targets for 72 yards and a touchdown, which came from four yards away on a highlight, toe-drag catch to start the second half of a 45-10 victory. Melvin Gordon (knee) will miss time with a knee injury, so Allen should be the focal point of the offense for at least the next two or three weeks, which could lead to some big-time production, including next Sunday night against the Steelers. Consider Rivers' No. 1 receiver a midrange WR1 for Week 13.
Keenan Allen goes for 9/89/1 in loss to the Broncos.
He also rushed once for a one-yard gain. Overall, Allen was great and won the battle against Chris Harris (even causing a mini meltdown by Denver's top corner), but Los Angeles struggled late in a 23-22 defeat. The former third-round pick (who scored from four yards away on Sunday) isn't on the pace that he was a season ago, but he's as consistent as they come, so Allen remains a solid WR1 next week against the Cardinals; he should avoid Patrick Peterson in the slot.
Keenan Allen caught six passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Raiders.
Allen was targeted a team-high nine times, and he closed out the first half of a 20-6 victory with an 11-yard score on an out route. The 26-year-old continues to be a reliable WR1 in all formats, as Sunday's performance was his second-lowest yardage total of the season, and he's yet to be held to fewer than 44 yards in a game. Allen has been contained against the Broncos throughout his career, but he should stay in lineups for Week 11.
Keenan Allen totals 152 yards versus the Seahawks.
Allen was involved early and often for the Chargers in their Week 9 win, catching six passes (on ten targets) for 124 yards along with two carries for 28 yards. The second-highest receiving total for the team was 30 yards, so Allen was clearly the top option for Philip Rivers throughout the afternoon. Allen is looking for his first touchdown since Week 1, though, but he's still on pace for 94 receptions, 1,260 yards, and two touchdowns this season. He'll look to get in the end zone against the Raiders in Week 10.
Keenan Allen caught five passes for 72 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans.
Allen hauled in all five of his looks by Philip Rivers, but he consistently saw double teams on underneath routes on a day that the Chargers were mostly held in check besides a couple deep touchdowns. He also got open but wasn't targeted in a failed red-zone trip, which caused him to show some frustration; however, it shouldn't lead to much as he and Philip Rivers calmly talked it out, and Allen will be a no-doubt WR1 when Los Angeles returns from the bye week to face Seattle.
Keenan Allen gets eight touches in Chargers' win.
Allen caught four-of-six targets for 62 yards and added four carries for 41 yards in the Week 6 win over the Browns. With Allen not quite as involved as a receiver to start the season, the Chargers tried to get him a chance to make plays with the ball in his hands as a runner, and he ran the ball well. Next week against the Titans in London isn't an easy matchup, but Allen remains on the WR1 radar.
Keenan Allen leads Los Angeles in receiving as they top the Raiders, 26-10.
Allen caught eight-of-nine targets for 90 yards in the win, also adding a five-yard rush. He hasn't scored since the opener, but Allen is a prime buy-low target that should start finding the end zone and picking up some chunk yardage (no plays of more than 25 yards this season). The 26-year-old will be a difficult cover for Gregg Williams' defense next Sunday in Cleveland, so keep him inserted in lineups as a solid WR1 option in all formats.
Keenan Allen leads the Chargers in Week 4 receiving.
Allen caught seven passes (on ten targets) for 63 yards against the Niners. Allen continues to play well, but a monster game could be coming for Philip Rivers' number one receiver. And despite what feels like a relatively slow start to the season, Allen is on pace for 96 receptions, 1,128 yards, and four touchdowns through four games.
Keenan Allen (knee/tooth) is officially active against the Niners.
Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn didn’t sound too concerned about his top receiver’s status for today, and Allen is indeed ready to go. You can lock Allen into fantasy lineups as a strong WR1 option.
Keenan Allen (knee/tooth) is listed as questionable for Week 4.
Allen missed Wednesday and Thursday practices, but he was back today for at least a limited practice session. There's real concern about Allen being able to play on Sunday, and the team doesn't play until 4:25 PM ET, so fantasy owners could be in a predicament if his status isn't cleared up by the early games. If Allen does play, he can be inserted into fantasy lineups as a WR1.
Keenan Allen (knee/tooth) did not practice today.
This is Allen's second straight missed practice, so there is some slight concern for his Week 4 status. The tooth thing is something new, so maybe that's really the cause of another missed practice. Hopefully Allen is able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.
Keenan Allen (knee) did not practice today.
It’s only Wednesday, so this could be a day off of sorts for LA’s top receiver. Expect Allen to hit the practice field tomorrow.
Keenan Allen held in check as Chargers fall to the Rams, 35-23.
Allen caught three passes for 44 yards and lost a fumble in the loss. The 26-year-old also looked to get a little banged up late in the game, but he should be fine for Week 4. If so, Philip Rivers' favorite target should be considered a WR1 option in what looks to be a bounce back spot at home against the 49ers.
Keenan Allen caught six passes for 67 yards in Sunday's win over the Bills.
Allen completely dominated Buffalo in their meeting last season, but it wasn't needed in a convincing victory (LA led 28-6 at the half) on Sunday. That said, the star receiver was tackled near the end zone on one of his receptions, and he will probably be needed in a tough matchup against the Rams in Week 3. Allen is still a WR1 in a difficult draw, as he should be able to avoid Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib in the slot, and he's used to playing against them from their days in the AFC West.
Keenan Allen goes over 100 yards with a touchdown in Chargers' Week 1 loss.
The Chargers couldn't keep up with the Chiefs, but Allen did his part with eight receptions for 108 yards and one touchdown. The touchdown was on a smooth release at the line of scrimmage that got him basically wide-open in the end zone for a 20-yard score. Allen faces a Bills team that gave up three receiving touchdowns to wide receivers in Week 1, but there's a chance he sees a lot of star Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White in the game; however, Allen is too good not to start in fantasy leagues.
Keenan Allen goes off in Chargers' Week 17 win.
Allen had nine receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders, ending his excellent season with another great game. On the season, Allen had 102 receptions for 1,393 yards and six touchdowns, so anyone that drafted him in the third- or fourth-round of fantasy drafts was extremely happy with the production. Allen should very much worth at least a second-round selection in 2018 fantasy drafts.
Keenan Allen gets ten targets against the Jets.
Allen didn't show any limitations from his back injury, catching five passes for 63 yards in the Christmas Eve win. Allen even picked off a pass, as he lined up in the end zone for a Hail Mary attempt and intercepted it, taking it about 40 yards before being brought down. Allen is a great option for Week 17 against Oakland.
Keenan Allen (back) is expected to be OK.
It doesn't sound like the back injury that forced Allen out toward the end of Saturday night's loss to the Chiefs is anything serious, which is a relief. We'll monitor Allen's status throughout the week, but expect him to be ready to go on Christmas Eve against the Jets.
Keenan Allen gets eight targets in Week 15.
Allen caught five passes for 54 yards in the loss to Kansas City. Allen came into the game as one of the hottest players in the league, with four-straight 100-yard receiving games, so he was bound to see a dip in production at some point. He did leave the game late with a back injury, but it's probably not too serious, as the Chargers were down by 17 with a very unlikely chance of coming back. Assuming he's ready to go, Allen will be a WR1 against the Jets on Christmas Eve.
Keenan Allen stays hot as Chargers improve to 7-6 with 30-13 win over Washington.
Allen caught six passes for 111 yards, and he nearly found the end zone for the fifth time in four games, but was brought down right at the one-yard line. He also didn't have double-digit receptions for the first time in four weeks, but fantasy owners can't really complain about anything right now. Allen remains a great WR1 in a huge matchup with the Chiefs on Saturday night.
Keenan Allen makes history in win over the Browns.
Allen had his third-straight monster performance, catching 10 of 14 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 13 win. The star receiver became the first player in NFL history to have at least 10 receptions, 100 yards, and a touchdown in three consecutive games, which is obviously quite the accomplishment. Over his last three games, Allen is averaging 11 receptions, for 145.3 yards, and 1.3 touchdowns. There might not be a hotter player in the league right now, and the matchup with Josh Norman in Week 14 should not scare you from inserting Allen into your lineup.
Keenan Allen stays red-hot in Thanksgiving win.
After his 12-catch, 159-yard, two-touchdown performance last week, Allen was just as uncoverable today versus the Cowboys, catching 11 of 14 targets for 172 yards and two touchdowns. The 172 yards were a career-high for the crafty playmaking receiver, and his long in the game was a 42-yard touchdown where he juked a few Cowboys on his way to the end zone. While he's been perhaps the hottest receiver in the NFL over the last two weeks, there's a chance defenses start to try and take him away more—they really have no choice, or he'll continue to light them up. Still, the on-fire fifth-year receiver will be a WR1 next week against the Browns.
Keenan Allen goes off against the Bills.
Allen wasn't putting up huge numbers lately, as he didn't top 70 receiving yards in the last five games entering this one against the Bills, but he had his best game of the season and was basically uncover able in the Week 11 win. Allen caught 12 of 13 targets for 159 yards and two touchdowns (along with a three-yard carry early in the game), with 111 of those yards and both touchdowns coming in the first half. The first score was on a 29-yard back-shoulder throw, and the second was on a short pass that he stretched the ball out across the goal line on. If the game wasn't such a blowout, Allen probably would've done a lot more damage, but fantasy owners will certainly take this performance. He'll be a great option against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.
Keenan Allen gets team-high seven targets versus Jacksonville.
This was the most difficult matchup of the season for Allen, but he had a pretty good game, catching four passes for 48 yards while working as a reliable target for Philip Rivers over the middle. Allen also received a carry on an end around, and he picked up six yards. With an easier matchup on deck in Week 11 against the Bills, Allen will go back to being a WR1/WR2 option.
Keenan Allen catches four passes against the Patriots.
Allen was surprisingly only targeted five times in the game, but he picked up good yardage on his receptions, gaining 61 yards in the game. Fantasy owners were probably hoping for more points from Allen, but it was a fine day. Through eight games, Allen is on pace for 80 receptions, 1,096 yards, and two touchdowns. With his two matchups against Denver out of the way, look for Allen to increase those numbers over the second half of the season and push closer to the 100-reception mark—though his Week 10 matchup with Jacksonville will be a difficult one.
Keenan Allen caught three passes for 41 yards in Sunday's win over the Broncos.
Allen was able to get the better of Chris Harris on a handful of occasions, but Los Angeles didn't have to push things offensively with Denver putting zero points on the board. The Patriots will have a difficult time containing Allen next Sunday; he's a low-end WR1 option in standard leagues.
Keenan Allen (shoulder) is officially active for the Chargers.
There was some slight concern, but Allen is ready to go in a big AFC West matchup with Denver. There is some risk with him in your lineup given the matchup, but he's an excellent receiver and is at least a FLEX option against the Broncos.
Multiple reports: Keenan Allen (shoulder) is expected to play against Denver.
Allen was added to the injury report late in the week and was a surprise questionable for the game. He'll reportedly have to test the shoulder pregame but is expected to be ready to go. If active, he'll be more of a WR2/FLEX option against the vaunted secondary of the Broncos.
Keenan Allen (shoulder) is questionable for Week 7.
Allen suddenly didn't practice today after being limited yesterday, so his shoulder might be an issue for Sunday. The Chargers play at 4:25 PM ET, so you need to make sure you have backup plans from the later games in case Allen is inactive. Already in a difficult matchup with Denver, Allen should be downgraded from his normal WR1/WR2 status this week while dealing with the injury.
Keenan Allen catches five passes against the Raiders.
Allen was targeted nine times, gaining 45 yards on his five receptions. A bigger game was expected for Allen in a good matchup against Oakland, but he still played well in the game. Expectations should be tempered in Week 7 against the Broncos, but Allen had five receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown against them in Denver in Week 1.
Keenan Allen gets 12 targets against the Giants.
Allen started the game slow, but he got going in the second half and ended up with four receptions for 67 yards in the difficult matchup. It would've been a bigger day, but Philip Rivers missed Allen in the end zone when he was wide open, and it also looked like he was open a couple other times in the red zone where Rivers was either pressured or didn't look his way. It's good to see Allen, who led the team in receiving, have a solid day in a tough matchup like this. He's a WR1 next Sunday in an easier matchup versus Oakland.
Keenan Allen goes off in loss to the Eagles.
Allen caught five passes (on 11 targets) for 138 yards, with a long of 50 against the Eagles. As shown in his stat line, he picked up chunk yardage on his catches as he helped bring the Chargers back and nearly comeback in the game. Allen looked faster than ever in the game, and he's showing zero signs of any complications from his ACL tear last year. The Chargers receiver is on pace for 96 receptions, 1,336 yards, and four touchdowns, and he's had at least five catches in every game so far. Allen has a difficult matchup against the Giants next week, but he lines up all over the field and should be matchup-proof.
Keenan Allen gets nine targets in Week 3 loss.
Allen's nine targets were a team high, and he caught five of them for 61 yards. The great news is the Allen looks healthy as ever, and he'll look to have a big game in Week 4 against the Eagles.
Keenan Allen caught nine passes for 100 yards in Sunday's loss to Miami.
Allen lined up all over the formation and was the focal point of LA's passing attack, leading the team in targets, catches, and yards. Hopefully he gets more scoring opportunities after Antonio Gates finally surpassed the touchdown record for tight ends, but Allen will do most of his damage on catches and yards. He's a high-end WR2 in standard leagues and a solid WR1 in PPR leagues. The 0-2 Chargers host the 2-0 Chiefs next Sunday.
Keenan Allen scores against the Broncos in Week 1.
Allen, as he has all preseason, looked 100% after tearing his ACL in Week 1 last season. The young receiver had five receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown against Denver's tough pass defense. The touchdown came in the fourth quarter on a slant route where it appeared he beat Chris Harris and Rivers hit him for six. In an easier matchup next Sunday against the Dolphins, Allen will be a good WR1/WR2 option.
Keenan Allen catches all five targets in Chargers' third preseason game.
Aside from wearing a knee brace, it doesn't look like Allen is coming off a torn ACL from last year. He had five receptions for 45 yards and continued playing even after Philip Rivers and Melvin Gordon left the exhibition against the Rams. Allen is going outside the top 15 receivers and should provide good value there as Philip Rivers' number one receiver.
Keenan Allen shows he's fully healthy in Week 2 preseason game.
While quarterback Philip Rivers didn't play in the exhibition against the Saints, Allen played—which indicates he's clearly 100%. Allen had one catch for nine yards and even came in motion and pass blocked on one play. He's still wearing a knee brace, but that shouldn't be an issue. Allen offers good value with his current 41 ADP as the number one receiver for Philip Rivers.
Eric D. Williams of ESPN thinks Keenan Allen "should put up monster numbers" this season.
The Chargers' number one receiver is coming back from the ACL tear he suffered in the opening game last season, and has looked great according to everyone (including quarterback Philip Rivers). Williams writes, "Allen looks healthy and ready to solidify his status as one of the top receivers in the league" in 2017, adding that he looked "quick and explosive" throughout the offseason. Allen entered the league in 2013 and topped 1,000 receiving yards and eight touchdowns as a rookie but has battled injuries since. If he stays healthy, there isn't much question he'll be a 1,000-yard receiver and he could be among the league leaders in receptions.
Philip Rivers says Keenan Allen looks "as good" as he did before his injury.
Rivers was on "The Rich Eisen Show" and told Eisen, "he looks like himself... I really think he looks just as good as before he got hurt." Rivers also said he doesn't think his number one receiver will be any different and "you'll see the same guy trot out there as last September." Allen is now almost 11 months removed from his ACL tear last season, and he's only 25-years-old; if he looks like he has in the past, it'd be great for Rivers and the Chargers. Currently going in the 5th round, Allen looks like he should be a solid value pick there.
Keenan Allen is "full-go," but taking it slow at Chargers OTAs.
Allen tore his ACL Week 1 last season, so he's had plenty of time to rehab and get right. He's 100%, but the Chargers aren't having him do everything in OTAs. Allen should get a good amount of targets from Philip Rivers this season.
Keenan Allen says he's about 85% healthy, according to Ricky Henne.
Allen is recovering from his torn ACL from Week 1 last season. He recently posted a video of him working out and he looked to be 100%. He should get there by training camp. Despite coming off the ACL injury, Allen should be at least a back end WR1 this season.
Keenan Allen posts video of a workout, looks great.
Allen posted a video of him working out and making a bunch of cuts. It's great to see about seventh months removed from his torn ACL. Allen will be a welcome addition to Philip Rivers and the Chargers next season. He'll be a very good option to choose behind the top receivers in 2017 fantasy drafts, particularly in PPR leagues.
Keenan Allen's rehab from a torn ACL is on track, according to GM Tom Telesco.
They'll know more next month, but Allen should definitely be ready for the start of the season after he tore his ACL in Week 1 of last season. Allen will be a great fantasy option in drafts next season, despite coming off the torn ACL.
