Keenan Allen caught 11-of-14 targets for 172 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.
The Cowboys simply could not cover Allen in the middle of the field, and his cherry on top was a 42-yard score that included numerous broken tackles. Allen is a top-ten NFL wide receiver when healthy, and healthy he has been all season, putting to rest "injury-prone" nonsense of years past when he dealt with fluky injuries. Expect Allen to stay white hot in Week 13 against the Browns. Nov 23 - 7:21 PM

Keenan Allen caught 12-of-13 targets for 159 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' 54-24, Week 11 win over the Bills.

The Bills started rookie Nathan Peterman at quarterback, and he tossed five first-half interceptions to keep setting the Chargers up in wonderful field position. Allen came into this one failing to produce even 70 yards in a game since Week 4 and hadn't scored a touchdown since the season opener. The 13 targets set a new season-high, and the electrocuted Bills defense simply laid down and let Allen do whatever he pleased as he went into the half with over 100 yards and both scores. He didn't even play in the fourth quarter of the easy win. This was a predictable breakout spot against a broken Bills team, and Allen should continue it on Thanksgiving afternoon against the Cowboys.
Nov 19 - 7:17 PM

Keenan Allen caught 4-of-7 targets for 48 yards in the Chargers' Week 10 loss to the Jaguars.

Allen predictably struggled in a tough matchup with Jalen Ramsey and company on the back end of the Jaguars' defense. The Chargers moved the ball by giving a combined 36 touches to Melvin Gordon (21 touches for 42 yards) and Austin Ekeler (119 yards and two TDs on 15 touches). Allen has been in a lengthy slump and gets another tough date with the Bills in Week 11.
Nov 12 - 5:26 PM

Keenan Allen caught 4-of-5 targets for 61 yards in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Patriots.

Allen's total on Sunday continues a four week stretch of pedestrian game totals. His targets have dropped in three consecutive games while he's reached 70-yards receiving in just two of his first eight games on the season. Allen is a floor-based WR3 on the season and things don't get better for him after a Week 9 bye as the Chargers face the Jaguars in Week 10.
Oct 29 - 6:25 PM

Keenan Allen hauled in 3-of-7 targets for 41 yards in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

Allen did not appear to be struggling with the shoulder injury he suffered this week in practice, but he was unable to make much happen against the Broncos' elite pass defense. That said, he did manage to break free for a couple important catches, and he just missed on a few others. Guaranteed a big workload -- this was the fewest targets he has seen all season -- Allen will be in for a bounceback next week in New England.
Oct 22 - 8:01 PM

Keenan Allen (shoulder) is active for Week 7 against the Broncos.

Allen hurt his shoulder Thursday and did not practice Friday, so he is likely less than 100 percent. Still, he has seen at least nine targets in every game and has a history of scoring touchdowns against the Broncos. He is a top-30 option even in the bad matchup. The Chargers declared DL Corey Liuget (back), RT Joe Barksdale (foot), Dontrelle Inman, Branden Oliver, Cardale Jones, OT Tyler Marz, and TE Sean Culkin inactive for Week 7.
Oct 22 - 3:02 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Keenan Allen (questionable, shoulder) will play Week 7 against the Broncos.

It wasn't looking good for Allen after he injured himself at practice this week but apparently the Chargers think he's well enough to play. It's a tough assignment against the Broncos, though Allen scored his only touchdown of the year against them back in Week 1. Getting this information now is a huge help as it would have been tough on fantasy owners to wait on Allen's status with the Chargers kicking off at 4:25 PM ET.
Oct 22 - 7:58 AM

Keenan Allen (questionable, shoulder) is "very hopeful" of playing against the Broncos in Week 7.

Allen fell on his shoulder at Thursday's practice and was listed as a DNP on Friday, casting doubt on his status for Week 7. However, Allen feels he can play through it, so perhaps we'll see him out there on Sunday. With the Chargers kicking off at 4:25 PM ET, Allen owners need to have a backup plan in place.
Oct 20 - 3:55 PM

Keenan Allen (shoulder) is questionable for Week 7 against the Broncos.

Allen was downgraded to DNP at Friday's practice, which is obviously concerning after being a late add to the injury report this week. He now appears to be on the wrong side of questionable for Sunday's 4:25 PM ET start in Los Angeles. Allen's absence would open up more looks for Tyrell Williams and Hunter Henry, though it's not an ideal matchup against Denver's vaunted "no-fly zone" secondary.
Oct 20 - 3:05 PM

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

It's a new injury for Allen, but the Chargers are likely just being careful. We haven't seen a reason to worry about his Week 7 availability for his tough matchup with Denver. Allen's status will be updated on Friday.
Oct 19 - 6:39 PM

Keenan Allen pulled in five catches for 45 yards on nine targets Sunday in the Chargers’ Week 6 win over the Raiders.

Other than a 28-yard grab in the second quarter, Allen’s day was surprisingly short on highlight-reel material. The Raiders sold out to stop him, which opened the door for Melvin Gordon and Hunter Henry to both see more targets. All of Keenan’s catches came in the first half. Despite Sunday’s flop, Allen has been tremendous in his return from a torn ACL and should bounce back, though maybe not next week against the Broncos. They held him to a season-low 35 yards when he faced them in Week 1, though Allen did score a touchdown in that game.
Oct 15 - 9:08 PM

Keenan Allen caught 4-of-12 targets for 67 yards in the Chargers' Week 5 win over the Giants.

Allen could never quite get on the same page with Philip Rivers. Wide open in the end zone, he was overthrown on a potential score. Another end zone target resulted in an illegal touching penalty after Allen went out of bounds and was the first to touch the ball. Despite the disappointing day, Allen has now cleared 60 yards in four straight games, and is averaging 10 targets. He will be in the WR1 mix more weeks than not, including next Sunday against the Raiders.
Oct 8 - 5:30 PM

Keenan Allen caught 5-of-11 targets for 138 yards in the Chargers' Week 4 loss to the Eagles.

The targets and yards were both new season highs, though the 100-yard game was Allen's second in three weeks. The 25 year old has looked so crisp and quick out of his breaks. He hasn't lost a step after tearing his ACL last season. Allen is on pace for 96/1,336/4 at the season's quarter pole. He'll be a WR1 more often than not.
Oct 1 - 7:37 PM

Keenan Allen recorded five catches for 61 yards on nine targets Sunday in the Chargers’ Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

Allen won most of his matchups in the middle of the field and Philip Rivers probably would have been wise to target him more frequently rather than constantly bombing risky deep balls into the teeth of Kansas City’s secondary. A master route runner with enough size to win matchups against physical corners (like Marcus Peters, for example), Allen remains one of the league’s most versatile receiving weapons. He’ll be a borderline WR1 against the Eagles in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 9:20 PM

Keenan Allen caught 9-of-10 targets for 100 yards in the Chargers' Week 2 loss to the Dolphins.

Allen has looked superb in his first two games back from ACL surgery, seeing 10 targets in each game and dominating the Dolphins' middle-field defenders with crisp routes and sure hands. As long as Allen is able to stay on the field, he should be in the WR1 conversation at year's end. Antonio Gates simply doesn't have much left, and Allen is taking back over as Philip Rivers' favorite chain mover. Allen gets another plus draw at home against the Chiefs in Week 3.
