Allen has an ankle injury that is expected to keep him out for the preseason, although Anthony Lynn did not rule out surgery

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 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.

Our 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.
