San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen is the second longest tenured wide receiver on the team, other than WR Malcom Floyd. "Hopefully I can take on a leader role along with Malcom. Hopefully I can help the new guys build a connection with Philip (Rivers) and understand the playbook. I'm helping them with the new terminology, and picking up on the words and the lingo. Even though they may have been in similar systems, I'm helping them with the splits and where Phil wants it to be. I've grown a lot since I first came here. I don't press as much as I used to. I am under control. It is only two years, but I've definitely grown a lot." Allen expects to work out of the slot a lot more in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Allen is holding himself to the high standards he set in his rookie season, and he hopes to put last season's slightly disappointing campaign behind him. Allen will be a bit of a sleeper entering 2015 drafts, and he has the skills and the role to be a draft-day steal.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers is coming off two consecutive seasons of at least 4,200 passing yards and 30 touchdowns, so an extension seems to be deserved, even despite a league-high 18 interceptions in 2014. Rivers has been a QB1 the last two seasons, so there's no reason to believe he can't attain that status this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers looks to be the Chargers' starting quarterback entering training camp, but there likely will continue to be talks about a possible extension. Rivers has a solid 2014 season and could be a starting option against certain matchups.
