Summary

So now we know what 16 games of Keenan Allen can conceivably bring. The oft-injured Allen not only played all 16 games in 2017, and not only led the NFL in targets per snap en route to 102 catches - he also showcased the open-field ability we hadn't seen since his rookie year. After dominating targets but averaging just 10.5 yards per catch from 2014-16, Allen nudged ahead to 13.7 last season. He's definitely not the prototype of a fantasy WR1: with so little a downfield game, he's not much of a touchdown threat, despite high usage in the red zone. And his jarring injury history will absolutely scare off a chunk of fantasy drafters. All told, Allen is a risky second-round pick, even in PPR leagues. He's not much of a candidate to make a leap to 8+ scores, and with emerging talent all over the Chargers offense, he's probably maxed out his volume outlook as well. Still, that volume should hold relatively steady as long as he's upright, and another 100-catch line would deliver Julio Jones-level value at a strong discount. (May 22)

Chargers | Busy season for Keenan Allen? (Thu Jul 5, 10:11 PM) - Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen will be relied on more heavily in the red zone and on third down this season because of the injury to TE Hunter Henry (knee), according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com.

Our View: Last year we saw what Allen can do when healthy. Now he just has to stay that way, and it's even more critical due to the injury to Hunter Henry. That makes his ADP as No. 7 receiver off the board and 17th player off the board overall. It's possible given the situation that he could be even more productive than his ADP in point per reception leagues where all those extra catches will really add up.
