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
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.

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.

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.

From TheHuddle

Oct 27 12:10pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) is active for Week 8 against the Bears, but he will likely be on a snap count on Sunday. Allen remains the team's primary aerial threat, but he'll be more of a low-ceiling WR3 with reduced snaps against one of the tougher defenses in the NFL, and on the road no less. Expect the Bolts to throw more to Austin Ekeler, Hunter Henry and Mike Williams in this one as a result. Ekeler makes for a solid PPR flex, Henry is a strong TE1 and Williams has WR2 upside this week with Allen at less than 100 percent.

From RotoBaller

Oct 27 12:03pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is officially active for the Week 8 game but is expected to receive limited snaps during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Allen is a risky option since he missed the last two practices of the week and may not be 100 percent. He could still be a starting option in fantasy leagues, but fantasy players can also keep him on the bench if they have better options available.

From TheHuddle

Oct 27 10:30am ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen will test out his hamstring in pre-game warmups, but Allen is reportedly not optimistic about his chances to be a go on Sunday against the Bears. If Allen plays, expect him to be on a snap count and produce less than fantasy owners are used to. If he sits, Mike Williams slides over to the role of Los Angeles' number-one receiver and would make for a solid start in most formats. Tight end Hunter Henry could also see an increased role.

From RotoBaller

Oct 27 10:20am ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is a low-end WR1 this week in his matchup against Chicago, assuming that he plays. Allen has been dealing with a hamstring injury that has limited his participation in practice, and he likely will be a game-time decision. However, if he is able to play, then he should continue to be the leading target for quarterback Philip Rivers. Allen was given a team-high 11 targets last week but struggled to make an impact on the game, catching four of them for 61 yards. This week the Chargers face the Chicago Bears, who have given up an average of 17.2 points per game to the position but have yet to face a top-tier slot receiver this season. Given the opportunity that Allen will be afforded this week, he is a low-end WR1 this week if he suits up.

From RotoBaller

Oct 27 8:33am ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is considered a game-time decision for Week 8's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Allen was listed as questionable on the injury report after missing the team's last two practice sessions during the week. He should be viewed as a starting option when healthy but fantasy owners should make alternate plans in case he is declared inactive this afternoon.

From TheHuddle

Oct 25 6:33pm ET

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Spin: Allen missed the last two practices because of the injury and probably will be a game-time decision. He is a weekly starting option when healthy, but fantasy players should have other options available in case Allen is ruled out.

From TheHuddle

Oct 25 4:50pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring), who will be a game-time decision in Week 8 against the Bears, will have his snaps limited during the game if he's active, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. If Allen can't play, Geremy Davis likely would start in his place alongside Mike Williams. Allen is a truly risky fantasy commodity this weekend and is in danger of being a bust against a tough defense if he plays limited snaps. He's tied for seventh in the NFL in receiving yards (564) and is eighth in catches (44), but Allen has been noticeably quiet for weeks. Expect the Bolts to lean heavily on Austin Ekeler, Hunter Henry and Williams in the passing game if Allen doesn't play.

From RotoBaller

Oct 25 3:03pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers S Nasir Adderley (hamstring), DT Cortez Broughton (illness), DT Justin Jones (shoulder) and NT Brandon Mebane (knee) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 8 versus the Chicago Bears. WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not practice for a second straight day, while RB Justin Jackson (calf) was a limited participant in practice all week; both players are listed as questionable. DE Melvin Ingram (hamstring), FB Derek Watt (knee) and PK Mike Badgley (groin) practiced in full Friday and are also listed as questionable. DT Damion Square (hamstring), LB Uchenna Nwosu (hip), LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) and LB Thomas Davis (non-injury) also logged a full practice Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Oct 25 2:33pm ET

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was absent from the portion of practice open to the media Friday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Spin: That's a pair of missed practices for Allen, who likely got hurt during Wednesday's session, as he popped up on the injury report Thursday. Consecutive DNPs obviously do not bode well for his chances of playing Sunday, and fantasy owners should plan on being without him against the Chicago Bears. Mike Williams, Geremy Davis and Andre Patton would likely be featured in three-wide sets, although the bulk of Allen's empty targets would likely go to Hunter Henry and Austin Ekeler.
