The Chargers say defenses are using more press-coverage against Keenan Allen in 2014, leading to his disappointing start to the season.
"People, they aren't stupid," WRs coach Fred Graves said. "They're not just going to let him run free. They're going to take some things away." Allen has a team-high 34 catches, but has turned them into just 354 scoreless yards. His YAC per reception is down from 6.0 to 2.9 this season. Defenses are slapping a cornerback on Allen and rolling safeties to his side, leaving Philip Rivers to spread the ball around. Allen is a WR3/4 for Thursday night in Denver. Oct 22 - 1:39 PM

Keenan Allen caught 6-of-10 targets for 58 yards in San Diego's Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

The catches, yards and targets were all Allen's second most of the season, but for the seventh time in seven games, he failed to find the end zone. It's worth noting that one of his missed targets came in the painted area, but it wasn't a performance that will have Allen's owners feeling warm and fuzzy moving forward. Philip Rivers is simply doing too good a job of spreading the ball around to his myriad weapons. Allen will be a risky WR3/4 for Thursday's game against the Broncos' tough secondary.
Oct 19 - 7:53 PM

Keenan Allen managed three catches for 27 yards on six targets in San Diego's Week 6 win over the Raiders.

Allen's biggest play was a 19-yard reception midway through the fourth quarter. If anyone was still worried about some sort of injury bothering Allen, he cooled those concerns by busting a 29-yard punt return in the fourth quarter, bringing the ball back to the Raiders' 39-yard line. Allen is playing well, but the ball is being dispersed throughout San Diego's pass-catching corps. He's a guy to buy low, as Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd will almost certainly fade, while Eddie Royal (ribs) got hurt on Sunday.
Oct 12 - 7:39 PM

Keenan Allen (groin) is listed as probable for Week 6.

He practiced fully on Friday and will be a WR2 against Oakland.
Oct 10 - 3:46 PM

Keenan Allen (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Allen tweaked his troublesome groin injury in last week's blowout win over the Jets. He should be fine for Sunday's Week 6 tilt against the Raiders.
Oct 8 - 4:10 PM

Keenan Allen caught three passes for 25 yards in Sunday's Week 5 blowout of the Jets.

Allen appeared to tweak his troublesome groin early on, missing a few plays to get stretched out by trainers. But it didn't appear to be a real issue as he finished the game and even returned a punt in garbage time. As for Allen's box score, he had plenty of opportunities (seven targets) but got out-leaped by borderline NFL CB Phillip Adams for an interception and couldn't create any separation on other chances. Allen will be a strong bounce-back candidate against the Raiders in Week 6.
Oct 5 - 7:48 PM

Keenan Allen secured 10-of-11 targets for 135 yards in the Chargers' Week 4 win over Jacksonville.

The catches and yardage totals were both career highs. Allen also had a sensational sideline reception negated on replay in the third quarter. It would've gone for a gain of 20-plus yards. Allen dogwalked Jacksonville's corners all game at the short and intermediate levels after a slow start to the season. Only 22 years old, the arrow is pointing up on Allen the rest of the way despite his lack of TDs. Allen is back on pace for 88 catches and 976 yards. He'll be a WR2 in Week 5 against the Jets' suspect (to be kind) secondary.
Sep 28 - 7:45 PM

Keenan Allen (groin) is probable for Week 4.

Allen practiced in full throughout the week. He'll look to get back on track against the Jaguars after being held to 109 yards on 12 catches through three games. Allen is Rotoworld's No. 15 overall receiver.
Sep 27 - 3:29 PM

Keenan Allen (groin) is practicing in full for Week 4.

Allen was questionable last week before catching two passes for 17 yards against the Bills. He played his full complement of snaps in the win, so the injury wasn't a factor. Allen will be a solid WR2 option this week vs. the Jaguars.
Sep 24 - 4:51 PM

Keenan Allen caught two passes for 17 yards against the Bills Week 3.

Allen was questionable for the game with a groin injury, but the injury did not factor into the disappointing stat line. Allen looked healthy, but was unable to get many looks in the Chargers' run-heavy game plan. Allen only has 111 yards on 12 catches this season.
Sep 21 - 4:27 PM

Keenan Allen (groin) is active for the Chargers' Week 3 matchup with the Bills.

Allen was questionable after being limited on Thursday and Friday. Now active, Allen is a borderline WR1 against the Bills' shaky secondary.
Sep 21 - 11:42 AM

Keenan Allen (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 3 at Buffalo after practicing on a limited basis Friday.

He was limited in both Thursday and Friday's practices. The fact that Allen did bounce back to get in some reps Friday should bode well, and we'll know his Week 3 availability early on Sunday because the Chargers trek to Buffalo for a 1PM ET game. If Allen does play, he'll be a borderline WR1 in fantasy.
Sep 19 - 2:50 PM

Keenan Allen was added to the Chargers' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a groin issue.

It's a new injury for Allen, who must have suffered it in Thursday's practice. The Chargers' press corps doesn't seem alarmed, but Allen's status will obviously be worth double-checking on Friday. We're still leaving him penciled in as a borderline WR1 for Week 3.
Sep 18 - 4:14 PM

Keenan Allen caught 5-of-6 targets for 55 yards in the Chargers' Week 2 win over the Seahawks.

Allen got the better of Richard Sherman's side of the field a few times, but was mostly held in check for the second-consecutive week as he squared off with one of the league's top corners. Things should finally open up in Week 3, where the Bolts will venture to Buffalo to do battle with the Bills' shaky secondary.
Sep 14 - 8:02 PM

Keenan Allen (ribs) is officially probable for Week 2.

Allen continues to be listed on the injury report with a rib issue, but hasn't missed any practice. He's a WR2 for this week's matchup with Seattle.
