Summary

Allen has shaken the injury concerns of yesteryear, playing all 34 games over the last 2 seasons. And he remains one of football's most dependable high-volume targets, so there's little reason to doubt his PPR WR1 credentials anymore. Allen has caught 199 balls over these last 2 years, good for fifth-most in football, thanks to drawing a robust 26% of team targets. He's been remarkably consistent, too, posting 50 yards or more in 28 of those 34 Chargers games. If there's a knock on Allen from a fantasy perspective, it's that he's not quite the same splash-play threat as the rest of the WR1 tier. Allen is creative over the middle and in the open field, but doesn't push downfield as often as a Julio Jones or an A.J. Green. He's averaged a humble 13.0 yards per catch over this stretch, and he's been nearly doubled-up in touchdown rate by many of his WR1 peers. All in all, there's little reason not to target Allen early and confidently in per-reception formats. He's as strong a bet as anyone to top 100 catches, and his role only grows more stable with Tyrell Williams' target share out of town. He may not be quite the same prospect in non-PPR and performance leagues, but he still boasts the stability of an upper-tier target there. (May 9)

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.

Our 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.
