Chargers | Keenan Allen out for the season

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 13:34:02 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 12, with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He is out for the season.

Fantasy Tip: It's one of the biggest losses the Chargers could have suffered, especially after Allen missed half of last season. With Allen out, Antonio Gates, Travis Benjamin and Danny Woodhead should see upticks in targets. Tyrell Williams is worth a pickup off waivers after catching two passes for 71 yards in Week 1.

Chargers | San Diego offense headed for another dip?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 09:19:26 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) will likely need to be replaced by committee in the opinion of QB Philip Rivers after the wideout reportedly tore the ACL in his right knee in a Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Last season, the Chargers averaged 24 points with Allen in the lineup before a lacerated kidney that ended his year. After his exit, San Diego averaged 16 points the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The good news - if there is any - is the Chargers have more young and/or proven talent at receiver in 2016. There is some thought San Diego will bring back James Jones, who they cut during training camp, but owners can expect Travis Benjamin, Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams to see more targets on a regular basis. Allen's injury should also lock Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead into their respective TE1 and high-end RB2 designations in PPR leagues.

Chargers | Keenan Allen may have torn ACL

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 12:31:38 -0700

The San Diego Chargers believe WR Keenan Allen (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during their Week 1 game. He will undergo more tests to determine the severity of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Allen would miss the rest of the 2016 season if he is diagnosed with a torn ACL, so owners should look for replacements on the waiver wire. Travis Benjamin, Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams will receive bigger roles in the passing game with Allen sidelined. Benjamin could be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues, while Inman and Williams can be flex options.

Chargers | Keenan Allen carted off

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 11:22:04 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) was carted off the field during the team's Week 1 game after suffering an apparent right knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because it appears that Allen may have suffered a serious injury. Travis Benjamin would become the No. 1 receiver for the Chargers if Allen is sidelined for an extended period of time and could be a weekly starting option for owners.

Chargers | Keenan Allen in top form

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 18:52:14 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen made some tough catches against Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in a joint practice Wednesday, Aug 17.

Fantasy Tip: Allen was on his way to a monster season before a kidney injury last season, and despite some injury risk, he is worth grabbing as a WR2, especially in PPR formats.

Chargers | Keenan Allen shines in camp

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 07:26:16 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen returned to practice Monday, Aug. 8, after missing two days with a strained foot and "whipped" several defenders, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune's Tom Krasovic.

Fantasy Tip: Encouraging, especially if you're in the "Allen is going to break out" camp. Injuries are the driving concern when drafting him, but if he manages to stay healthy, the 24-year-old is a PPR phenom as a WR2 with top-five receiver upside.

Chargers | Keenan Allen consistent in practice

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 16:01:16 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen showed his precision and good hands at minicamp Wednesday, June 15, according to The San Diego Tribune's Tom Krasovic.

Fantasy Tip: If Allen can stay healthy then he should easily attain WR1 numbers, especially in PPR formats. He was on pace for 134 catches, 1,450 yards and eight touchdowns before suffering a lacerated kidney last season.
