Keenan Allen secured 4-of-7 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 4 win over the Browns.
Allen got the Chargers on the board early by beating Browns CB Pierre Desir for a 28-yard touchdown, winning in tight quarters as Desir's coverage was good. The rest of Allen's catches helped move the chains. Through four games, Allen is on pace for 132 receptions, 1,548 yards, and 12 touchdowns. He looks much improved following a disappointing sophomore NFL season and will be a borderline WR1 play against the Steelers in Week 5, especially with Stevie Johnson (hamstring) and Malcom Floyd (concussion) in doubt.

Keenan Allen caught 12-of-18 targets for 133 yards and two touchdowns in San Diego's Week loss to the Vikings.

Allen's first touchdown was a thing of beauty. In traffic, Allen split two defenders and waltzed into the end zone for a 34-yard score. His second was a 19-yard strike from Kellen Clemens deep into garbage time. With Ladarius Green (concussion) joining a suspended Antonio Gates on the metaphorical sideline, Allen was Philip Rivers' safety valve on a day where he had no time to throw. Allen has now bookended his 2/16 Week 2 with a pair of monster games. He'll be a mid-range WR2 against Joe Haden and the Browns in Week 4.

Keenan Allen caught 2-of-4 targets for 16 yards Week 2 against the Bengals.

Allen began the game by fumbling a punt, and it went downhill from there. Allen committed a bad drop and could not get loose for the yards after catch which came so easy for him last week against the Lions. Allen will have better games, but he needs to become a more consistent downfield threat to retain his WR2 status.
Sep 20 - 4:42 PM

Keenan Allen caught 15-of-17 targets for 166 yards Week 1 against the Lions.

The 11.1 YPC average is not impressive, but Allen was utilized more down the field than his sophomore season and made several plays after the catch as well. Allen was constantly open on deep ins against aging corner Rashean Mathis. After a sophomore slump, Allen looks poised to be a high-end WR2 again this season. He is a must start next week against the Bengals.
Sep 13 - 7:17 PM

Keenan Allen caught two passes for 28 yards in Saturday’s preseason loss to the Seahawks.

That gives him five receptions for 65 yards this preseason. Allen fell victim to the dreaded sophomore slump last season, logging just 783 yards and four touchdowns. Philip Rivers recently said Allen is having his best camp, which should give fantasy owners reason for optimism as the 23-year-old enters his third campaign with the Chargers.

Philip Rivers believes Keenan Allen is in the midst of his "best camp."

This is Rivers' third camp with his No. 1 receiver. "I think that's not even close, just how consistent he's been," were Rivers' comments on comparing Allen's 2015 camp to his first two. All signs continue to point toward Allen bouncing back from his sluggish sophomore campaign. He's a WR2.

Keenan Allen is down to 206 pounds after playing last season at 212.

Allen's 2013 Combine weigh-in was 6-foot-2, 206, so he's back at that weight. In the article linked below, Allen all but confirmed rumors of a lagging work ethic contributed to his surprisingly-slow 2014 campaign. Allen changed his diet this offseason, cut weight, and has drawn praise from the coaching staff for his improved commitment level. This season, the Chargers plan to give Allen more slot snaps, in addition to his outside X receiver duties. We like Allen's chances of getting into the 85-catch range in his third NFL season.
Aug 6 - 11:26 PM

Keenan Allen has been losing weight in an effort to "play faster."

It's just the latest indication that Allen has gotten more serious about his preparation following a down sophomore campaign. Allen's weight wasn't an obvious issue in 2014, but he certainly wasn't shaking loose from defenders the way he did as a rookie. A target monster with sure hands and excellent route-running chops, Allen is a prime bounce-back candidate for 2015.
Jun 29 - 5:03 PM

Philip Rivers says he has seen more "focus and determination" from Keenan Allen this offseason.

We don't have any inside info, but Chargers beat writers have dropped subtle hints all offseason that Allen slacked on his work ethic in 2014, potentially playing a role in his second-year step back. Rivers believes Allen is now aware of how "difficult" it is to stay on top in the pros. Allen dipped from 71-1,046-8 as a rookie to 77-783-4 as a sophomore, looking more like an underneath possession receiver than dynamic playmaker. Allen is still a solid bet to bounce back.
Jun 16 - 7:29 PM

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams expects Keenan Allen to see more time at slot receiver in 2015.

With Eddie Royal out of the picture after signing with the Bears, the Chargers have a hole at slot receiver. Allen dominated with over 700 combined yards after-the-catch his first two seasons. Philip Rivers got him the ball quickly, allowing Allen to get up field and break tackles using his short-area quickness. The Chargers also have Stevie Johnson capable of playing the slot, but Allen is a serious bounce-back candidate and threat for 90-plus catches in his third year.
Apr 8 - 10:19 AM

Keenan Allen (collarbone) is inactive for Week 17 against the Chiefs.

The Chargers will go with Malcom Floyd, Eddie Royal, and Dontrelle Inman in three-wide sets. Also inactive for San Diego are RB Ryan Mathews, C Chris Watt, CB Greg Ducre, DE Damion Square, NT Ryan Carrethers, and OLB Cordarro Law.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 11:37:00 AM

Keenan Allen (collarbone) is listed as doubtful for Week 17.

The Chargers' three-receiver set will presumably be comprised of Malcom Floyd, Eddie Royal, and Dontrelle Inman in a must-win game at Kansas City.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 02:55:00 PM

Keenan Allen (collarbone) did not practice Wednesday.

Allen isn't expected to play in Week 17, but the Chargers are holding off on placing him on I.R. Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal will continue to start, with Dontrelle Inman getting time in three-wide sets.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 02:31:00 PM

Keenan Allen (collarbone) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

We don't see any way Allen is ready for Sunday's must-win finale against the Chiefs. It's possible he'll be sent to injured reserve later in the week to free up a roster spot.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 02:25:00 PM

Keenan Allen (ankle, collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the 49ers.

As expected. Seyi Ajirotutu will fill the No. 3 receiver role behind Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal. Look for Antonio Gates to see a bump in targets. Those hanging onto Allen in re-draft leagues can safely cut ties with him.
