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

Date:

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.
Sep 12 - 8:20 PM

Keenan Allen (ribs) remains on the Week 2 injury report, but is practicing in full for the straight-straight week.

Allen's "injury" isn't an issue. Of greater concern is his matchup with the Legion of Boom one week after he was held in check by Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals. Allen has WR1 upside, but is a firm WR2 for his matchup with Richard Sherman and company.
Sep 11 - 6:30 PM

Keenan Allen caught five passes for 37 yards in the Chargers' Week 1 loss to the Cardinals on Monday night.

Allen was targeted ten times, finishing one behind Antonio Gates for the team lead. He had a long gain of 12 yards, and couldn't really shake Patrick Peterson or Antonio Cromartie loose for any big plays. Allen had a chance to reel in a tipped ball on the Chargers' final play on fourth-and-two, but it fell to the turf. Allen won't have it any easier against Richard Sherman and Seattle in Week 2.
Sep 9 - 1:55 AM

Keenan Allen (ribs) is probable for Monday night's opener against the Cardinals.

Allen didn't miss any practice time this week despite his rib injury. He's a low-end WR1 for Monday night's matchup with Arizona.
Sep 6 - 9:17 PM

Keenan Allen (ribs) got in his second straight "full" practice on Friday.

Allen is practicing fully this week despite his rib issue. He's expected to draw Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in coverage for Monday night's game, but should see enough targets to produce as a low-end WR1.
Sep 5 - 5:08 PM

Keenan Allen is listed on the Week 1 injury report with a ribs issue, but practicing in full.

There's no reason for concern. Although Allen figures to draw Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in Monday's opener, his precision route running makes him hard to lock down. Allen is firmly in the WR1 conversation.
Sep 4 - 7:22 PM

Chargers GM Tom Telesco raved about Keenan Allen's separation ability.

Allen is not particularly big or fast, but he's a dominant route-runner that showed last season he can get open at will. "Great point guards can feel people around them," Telesco said. "Keenan's like that. He has a natural feel for space, finding the open area." Allen, just 22 and coming off a 71-1,046-8 rookie campaign, has strangely not generated much buzz. It's perhaps the only reason why his ADP is still in the late-third round.

Keenan Allen caught his lone target for 15 yards in Sunday's third preseason game at San Francisco.

Allen has two grabs for 28 yards and one touchdown this preseason as Philip Rivers' clear No. 1 receiver. Already a great route runner and dominator in the intermediate parts of the field, Allen has reportedly looked faster in 2014. He's a red-zone maven and should flirt with 8-10 TDs. Allen is a top-end WR2.
Aug 24 - 6:22 PM

Several Chargers teammates have noticed increased speed from Keenan Allen in 2014 training camp.

After battling a college knee injury all last offseason, Allen made all but two of his 71 rookie-year receptions within 20 yards of the line of scrimmage. Allen has since worked on adding a deep-threat element. "He always was a great route runner," Philip Rivers said. "There just seems to be a little more juice. I think that's fair. If he can maintain that, it's only going to broaden what he can do." Still only 22 years old, Allen is a legitimate WR1 in Dynasty leagues.
Aug 1 - 11:11 PM

Keenan Allen has focused on improving his speed this offseason.

One of the main reasons Allen fell to the third round of last year's draft was a dog-legged 4.71 forty at his Pro Day. But he was coming off a PCL tear and has now been able to put some effort into gaining long speed. Allen, who posted one of the best rookie years by a wideout in NFL history, will need that extra juice as he adjusts to being the focal point of defenses. We're confident he'll be able to make the adjustment while getting peppered with targets as Philip Rivers' go-to guy.

Former NFL scout Matt Williamson says Keenan Allen "could be close to his ceiling already."

"As much as I like Allen, to ask him to improve dramatically in one season may be asking too much," said Williamson. "He's a really good receiver, but he does not have the athletic ability of an A.J. Green or a Julio Jones." It's a fair point. Allen wins with his route-running and hands, not elite speed or athletic ability. It could lead to defenses sitting all over underneath patterns. And with the Chargers implementing a run-heavy approach, we wouldn't expect a huge leap off last year's eye-opening 76-1175-10 line.

Keenan Allen grabbed six catches for 142 yards and two touchdowns in San Diego's playoff loss to Denver.

The Chargers' passing game was a complete non-factor in the first half, as Allen, Antonio Gates, Eddie Royal, and Vincent Brown all went into the tunnel without a catch. Allen finally recorded a reception midway through the third quarter, good for 19 yards. Allen made his next three catches count, scoring twice from 16 yards out and securing a 49-yard bomb deep down the seam, briefly giving San Diego life. Despite opening the season as San Diego's No. 4 receiver, Allen emerged as Philip Rivers' go-to guy by midyear and recorded one of the best rookie wideout seasons in NFL history. He'll go toe-to-toe with Eddie Lacy in the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year voting, and offer WR1 upside in 2014 re-draft leagues.
