  Chargers | Keenan Allen leads team in receiving    Fri Nov 8, 12:47 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Allen wasn't clicking with Philip Rivers in the downfield passing game, but his PPR value is intact because of high volume. He's at least looking like a safe play going into a matchup with the Chiefs.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was upgraded to a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.

Footballguys view: Allen still had seven catches last week and he dropped a touchdown. It sounds like his injury is getting better and he's on track to be the #1 in what should be a high-scoring game against the Packers.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen limited    Wed Oct 30, 06:13 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Allen is a little banged up at this point of the season. Watch to see if he can practice fully later in the week. He was injured last week but still played in Week 8 against the Bears. Allen was targeted 10 times even though he didn't play the usual amount of snaps. He should be fine this week provided there are no setbacks.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen posts seven receptions    Sun Oct 27, 04:30 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen ended up with seven catches for 53 yards on 10 targets in Week 8 against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: Allen was affected by his injury, mostly running shorter routes, but also got free downfield on a potential go-ahead touchdown, but dropped it. He'll be a solid WR2 next week against the Packers as long as his hamstring isn't any worse for the wear.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen active    Sun Oct 27, 11:56 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Allen is still a very risky start but worth a desperation look.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen a game-time decision    Sun Oct 27, 08:29 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Allen is on the doubtful side of questionable. Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams, and Hunter Henry are all better plays today even if Allen is active, although his absence could hurt Philip Rivers' outlook a bit.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen officially questionable    Fri Oct 25, 06:25 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Allen is good for the game against the Bears but Fantasy GMs have lowered expectations for most of the Chargers offense. We see Allen as more of a low-end WR2 or flex option this week.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen misses another practice    Fri Oct 25, 02:26 PM

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

Footballguys view: Allen is a game time decision and has to be considered on the doubtful side of questionable. Even if he does go, his numbers have been lackluster lately so it's easy to err on the side of sitting him. Mike Williams, Hunter Henry, and Austin Ekeler all get a possible bump in targets if Allen sits, but Philip Rivers outlook takes a hit.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen misses practice    Thu Oct 24, 05:46 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.

Footballguys view: This is a new injury and worrisome. Allen's production was already tailing off after Hunter Henry came back. If he can't go this weekend, Mike Williams becomes a better play and Austin Ekeler could play an even more central role in the passing game.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen targeted six times    Sun Sep 29, 09:31 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen pulled down five balls for 48 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Allen was quiet in this one because he had a lot of Xavien Howard and other players were better targets against Miami. He's still a top five receiver going forward into a matchup with Denver.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught eight passes for 98 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 2. He was targeted 15 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Allen is going to get a steady dose of targets every week and has delivered his promised low end WR1 in PPR leagues value. He'll face the beatable Houston secondary next week.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen on track for opener    Sun Aug 25, 04:17 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle) said he believes he will be ready for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Allen has been seen around practice and the worry level has gone down since surgery was invoked (and shot down as a current option) for Allen's injury. The whole Chargers offense could be a downgrade if left tackle Russell Okung isn't ready for Week 1. Doctors haven't cleared him to rejoin the team yet after a pulmonary embolism was discovered this offseason.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen may miss rest of preseason    Thu Aug 15, 07:37 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during practice this week and could miss the last three preseason games, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Chargers don't want any setback here, and with a few weeks to go before the season opener it's wise to shut the veteran down. Allen is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen registered two receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 13. It was his third-career postseason touchdown.

Footballguys view: Allen had a big play early and was barely heard from after that. He had a slight dropoff this year but is still among the fantasy WR1s heading into next season.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught five of his eight targets for 58 yards in a 22-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Allen was able to play, but the Chargers offense never got on track, so he had a floor game in this one. If the Chiefs don't close out the AFC West, Allen should be a stronger play against the Broncos next week.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen expected to play    Thu Dec 20, 08:05 AM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hip) has improved in practice this week and is expected to play Saturday, Dec. 22.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Chargers here. Allen's return does negatively impact the fantasy potential of others in the WR corps (like Mike Williams) but it gives Philip Rivers his favorite target back. It looks like he's trending in the right direction to play on Saturday against the Ravens. He's a WR2 for Fantasy GMs this week due to his injury status and the matchup.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hip) was not able to practice Tuesday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: The Chargers are at home to face the Ravens on Saturday in Week 16. There's a good chance Allen is a game-time decision for that contest. Fantasy GMs have to have other options at the ready in case we don't get any clarity on Allen's playing status until right before kickoff.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen could be ready    Mon Dec 17, 08:22 AM

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hip) could be ready to play Saturday, Dec. 22, against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: It's a tough matchup for the Chargers as they play the Ravens at home in Week 16. Allen may not be 100 percent healthy, but the team is competing for the no.1 seed in the AFC and they may push him out there at less than full strength. Fantasy GMs should look at Allen at least a WR3 or flex play.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen could miss time    Fri Dec 14, 07:10 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hip) suffered a hip pointer during the Week 15 game and could miss some playing time. Allen does not have any structural damage in his hip and is expected to miss an extended period of time.

Footballguys view: This doesn't sound good for his availability against the Ravens next week. Mike Williams should be the hottest pickup of Week 16 in leagues that still have waivers open.
