2019 RTSports Outlook

Allen had another big season as the No. 1 receiver for the Chargers, catching 97 passes for 1,196 yards and six touchdowns. Allen was 12th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He had three 100-yard games and at least four receptions all but two games. Allen has averaged 100 receptions for 1,295 yards and six touchdowns the past two seasons. He remains just 27 years old and the top target in the Chargers explosive offense. Allen runs good routes and does a good job of just getting open. He is capable of turning a short play into a big one because of his quickness and moves in space. His hands were a concern entering his rookie season, but Allen really alleviated those concerns the last few seasons. Allen is a complete receiver. Fantasy Outlook: Allen just keeps producing. The numbers don't lie. His only issue is a lack of scores, having six each of the past two seasons. He'll get big reception and yardage totals, though, making him a low-end No. 1 fantasy receiver. Expect around 95 receptions for 1,300 yards and seven or eight touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was able to shed his incorrectly-placed "injury prone" label last season. He played in 16 games in 2017 and 15 in 2018 after missing time in his first few seasons due to fluky injuries that, for anyone paying attention, were not signs of an injury prone player. Allen's 2018 featured 97 catches for 1196 yards and six touchdowns. He saw 159 targets in 2017 and 137 in 2018, and he should see a similar number of balls thrown his way in 2019 as well. With an ever-improving team and impressive coach Anthony Lynn around him, Allen's arrow is pointing almost straight up. He's just below the top-tier of wide receivers, but he has room to grow into that tier, and this may be the season he finally does so.

Player Notes
Dec 9 3:00am ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen caught five of his passes sent his way on Sunday, tallying up 83 yards in the team's massive win over the Jaguars. Allen snagged a quick pass over the middle and led defenders on a long foot race to rack up a 45-yard gainer at one point. His 83 yards was the most receiving yards he's recorded in a game in over two months, and while he was held out of the end zone once again, it was good just to see him break free on a couple of routes. The 45-yarder was also Allen's longest single catch this season. He'll have a tougher matchup next week when he faces the stout Vikings Defense, but he's only been held to less than five catches once in his last six games. He should find a way to get his.

Dec 8 10:03pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught five of his six targets for 83 yards in a 45-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.

Fantasy Spin: Although Allen hasn't had a lot of huge performances this year, he enjoys a steady role in the passing game. Allen is closing in on another 1,000-yard campaign, and he remains a reliable WR2.

From TheHuddle

Dec 7 3:30pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is making up for lost time by racking up touchdowns in two straight games. Now, he'll face another stout defensive backfield that is tied for the fourth-fewest receiving touchdowns this season. Jacksonville has allowed quite a few yards to wideouts, but they've been able to keep them out of the end zone. Allen has done a good job of hauling in passes sent his way this year, but he's still pulling himself out of the doldrums where he struggled to get meaningful yardage in the middle of the year. He's been on a roll the last few weeks though, and he should find a way to continue that momentum this week. Expect solid numbers for the fantasy playoffs.

From RotoBaller

Dec 2 2:00am ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen took a wild, tumbling trip into the end zone on Sunday to notch his fifth touchdown of the season. Allen would also haul in four more passes on the day, tallying 68 total yards even though he was supposed to be held in check by Chris Harris Jr. Allen was instead the fortunate recipient of a handful of blown coverages and caught passes with impunity. Allen has been kept quiet the majority of the time this season as LA's offense has struggled with a variety of issues, not least of which is their quarterback's degradation, but the growth of Mike Williams should help take some of the heat off his seat from here on out. Hopefully, whoever is throwing him the ball can do so accurately.

From RotoBaller

Dec 2 1:23am ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 loss against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Spin: It hasn't been a great year by Allen's standards, but he has played better recently, topping 65 yards receiving in three consecutive contests and scoring in the past two. He can plugged into your weekly lineup as a WR2.

From TheHuddle

Nov 29 4:20pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is expected to have his hands full once again when he faces Denver and Chris Harris Jr. on Sunday. Allen was shut down by Harris in October, catching four passes for just 18 yards. Harris has subsequently already told the media that he's planning on shadowing Allen once again this week, so owners should prepare for another dud by the top-flight wide receiver. Allen finally ended an extended touchdown drought by snagging one against Kansas City two weeks ago, but it's unlikely he'll see the end zone again this weekend. His talent means he can always find his way into fantasy starting lineups, but only desperate owners should be rolling the dice on this one.

Nov 19 2:30am ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen finally ended his touchdown drought. In the third quarter of Monday night's loss to the Chiefs, Allen was able to snag a quick pass and dive his way through a couple of defenders to get the score. It was Allen's first touchdown in eight games, and his 71 yards receiving are the most he's posted since Week 3. After a monster start to the year, Allen has become a ghost. While it's easy to blame it on Allen, it's starting to look like the problem originates with Philip Rivers instead. Rivers appears to be getting real old real fast, and that could explain why Allen, traditionally the team's outside man, has gotten lost in the shuffle.

From RotoBaller

Nov 19 12:43am ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen went for eight receptions, 71 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, Nov. 18 in Mexico City.

Fantasy Spin: Allen had his first visit to the end zone since Week 3. He started out with three touchdowns in the first three games, but went scoreless in the past seven outings. He has four or more receptions in nine of his 11 outings, making him a stud fantasy option in PPR leagues. The Chargers are off in Week 12.

From TheHuddle

Nov 16 1:20pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was able to snag eight passes last week, which is a great sign, but he still only tallied 68 yards on the day and hasn't scored a touchdown in seven weeks. In the thin air of Mexico City, Allen should have plenty of opportunity to go deep, but whether he can make something happen with that speed remains to be seen. If the game becomes a shootout, Allen could see plenty of chances, but KC's susceptibility to the ground game may negatively impact his targets. He's still dangerous, but there's considerable danger that he puts up another stinker this week.

From RotoBaller

Nov 8 1:30am ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen got some chances, but he was still held scoreless on Thursday night. Allen snagged eight of 11 passes thrown his way and tallied 68 yards receiving, but he failed to find the end zone for the seventh straight week. Allen has struggled to break out since Week 3, and this was a missed golden opportunity for him since Oakland's pass defense has been so bad this year. His talent and the cost most owners paid for him mean he'll stay active in just about everyone's lineup, but Allen is on his way to one of the most disappointing 1,000-yard seasons in recent memory.

From RotoBaller

Nov 8 1:03am ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught eight passes for 68 yards against the Oakland Raiders in Week 10. Allen also ran once for 18 yards.

Fantasy Spin: Incredibly, Allen's eight receptions and 68 yards were his most since Week 3. He has been getting the looks recently with double-digit targets in three of his last four games, but the yards simply aren't there. After averaging 9.7 receptions, 135 yards and 1 TD per game over the first three, Allen's numbers have dropped to 4.7 grabs for 46 yards per game with no TDs in the last seven. His upside should be enough to keep him active, but he's a borderline WR2/WR3 right now.

From TheHuddle

Nov 7 3:50pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has been a ghost over the last six weeks, averaging just 42 yards per week with zero touchdowns, but that could change in Oaktown. After a monster start to the year, Allen has disappeared while facing five above average defenses in the last six games. This week, he'll get to face the worst defense he's seen all year. Oakland's secondary is atrocious, and this will be a ripe opportunity for Allen to break out of his funk. Don't be surprised if this is one of those huge games where Allen goes for 125+ yards and at least one touchdown, like he did against Oakland in 2017.

From RotoBaller

Nov 4 2:50am ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was kept under cover once again on Sunday, ending the day with just three catches for 40 yards. It makes six straight games where Allen has failed to surpass 61 yards receiving, and he hasn't hauled in a touchdown since Week 3. Allen started the year as one of the best receivers in the league, but he's been forcibly faded into the background as opposing teams have schemed to remove him from matchups. Perhaps LA winning back-to-back games while focusing on other targets will allow Allen to get a little room to breathe. Either way, a Thursday night matchup against the Raiders is too nice to pass up.

From RotoBaller

Nov 3 11:03pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught three of his four targets for 40 yards in a 26-11 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 9.

Fantasy Spin: The Chargers found their running game against the Packers, and the four targets were the fewest of the year for Allen. He's been solid, albeit not spectacular, since a scorching start, but he has a good chance to break out in Week 10 against a vulnerable Oakland defense.

From TheHuddle

Nov 1 7:30pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) practiced in full Thursday and Friday, and he's good to go for Week 9. Allen is on a five-game touchdown drought, but he has a decent matchup against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers allow an average of 11.6 receptions for 134.8 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game to receivers the last five weeks. Allen has been targeted 39 times during that stretch and caught just 22 balls for 213 yards. His luck is bound to turn around, and this could be the week. Roll with him as a low-end WR1.

From RotoBaller

Nov 1 4:13pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.

Fantasy Spin: Allen has been targeted at least 10 times in five of the eight games this season and will continue to be the focal point in the passing game for the Chargers. He can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 31 5:33pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was upgraded to a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Spin: Allen is fully on track to play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 9 after being limited Wednesday. He has received 21 targets over the last two weeks but hasn't found the end zone since Week 3. His efficiency should correct itself and he remains a must-start in every format.

From TheHuddle

Oct 30 6:23pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Spin: Allen caught seven passes for 53 yards last week despite the injury and should see a normal workload in Week 9. He has been targeted at least 10 times in five of the eight games this season and should be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 28 12:00pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen led the team in targets in their victory over the Chicago Bears, despite concerns over his hamstring before the game. Allen caught seven of his ten targets for 53 yards but could have had a stronger performance if he was able to catch a deep touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. The Chargers currently are one of the league leaders in passing attempts, with the team struggling to move the ball on the ground. Moving onto next week, Allen should have a positive outlook for the matchup against the Green Bay Packers who have struggled against receivers in recent weeks.

From RotoBaller

Oct 27 4:43pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen ended up with seven catches for 53 yards on 10 targets in Week 8 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Spin: Allen was able to shake off a hamstring injury which was supposed to limit his snaps. He posted one of the best lines for fantasy owners in this defensive battle, at least for PPR owners. Don't be surprised to see him limited in practice again leading up to the Week 9 game against the Packers.
