Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is vaccinated, so he still has a chance to play in Week 14 against the New York Giants, according to a source. Allen landed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, and he'll need to be asymptomatic and return two negative tests 24 hours apart in order to be cleared to play this Sunday. Fantasy managers could still have him available as a strong WR2 option in Week 14, but making backup plans would be wise. Allen is the WR18 in fantasy and is coming off a two-touchdown game. He ranks third in WR targets with 124 and is a must-start if he gains clearance. If he does not, Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton would see a boost in targets, while rookie Joshua Palmer would also see the field more. Guyton is worth a waiver pickup if you have Allen rostered or need help at receiver this week.
The Los Angeles Chargers placed wide receiver Keenan Allen on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. Allen tested positive for the virus after producing five catches on eight targets for 34 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. If he is vaccinated, he'll need to be asymptomatic and provide two negative tests 24 hours apart in order to be cleared to play in Week 14 against the New York Giants on Sunday. If Allen is unvaccinated, he'll be quarantined 10 days and will miss this week's game. There's a good chance he might not play this week regardless, so fantasy managers need to prepare for that possibility. Allen has been a solid WR2 this year with 86 receptions for 929 yards and four touchdowns on 124 targets. If he's out this week, Jalen Guyton, who caught a long TD on Sunday, would step into the No. 2 role next to Mike Williams.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen continued his consistent season with another strong performance in a Week 13 victory versus the Cincinnati Bengals. The veteran only picked up 34 yards on the afternoon, but recorded five receptions and scored two touchdowns. He also converted a pass to quarterback Justin Herbert for a two-point conversion. Allen's first touchdown down came on a four-yard fastball thrown by Herbert on fourth down in the first quarter and he followed that up with a seven-yard touchdown near the end of the opening frame. Despite his consistency this season, Allen only had two touchdowns entering the afternoon and it was good to see him targeted near the end zone on Sunday. Moving forward, Allen remains a must-start on a weekly basis and he will look to keep up the impressive results against the New York Giants in Week 14.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has been the definition of consistent this year, and he will look to continue his impressive season in a Week 13 matchup versus the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals defense has gone consecutive games without allowing a touchdown to opposing wide receivers, but they have allowed 161 yards per game to the position. The veteran has been stringing together double-digit outings on a weekly basis this season, and despite only having two touchdowns on the year, he has remained a very valuable option for fantasy managers. Along with running back Austin Ekeler, Allen remains a huge part of the offense for quarterback Justin Herbert, and fantasy managers shouldn't be shy about starting him as a WR1 in 12-team leagues during Week 13.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen continued his consistent season with another good day on the field with seven receptions for 85 yards in a Week 12 loss versus the Denver Broncos. The veteran continues to be the top target in the offense for quarterback Justin Herbert and has consistently produced double-digit points on a weekly basis for managers. The only glare in his game this season is that he has only scored twice, but managers should still be pleased with the results Allen continues to put up. Heading into Week 13, Allen will face a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense, but should be considered a WR1 moving forward.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen continues to put up some of the most consistent numbers at the position and he will to keep that up against the Denver Broncos in Week 12. The veteran has caught 74 balls for 810 yards and two touchdowns on the year, but will face a Broncos secondary that is allowing just 156 yards per game to the position. The good news is that they are allowing 1.5 touchdowns per game to the position and Allen has been due a trip to the end zone. Allen remains a huge part of the Chargers offensive attack and quarterback Justin Herbert is sure to look his way plenty of times on Sunday. Managers can be confident starting him as WR1 in 12-team leagues in Week 12.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen caught 9-of-13 targets for 112 yards in Sunday's 41-37 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He led the Chargers in targets and receiving yards for a fourth straight game. The 29-year-old has now been targeted for double digits in four consecutive contests. He's caught 74 passes for 810 yards and two touchdowns over 10 games in 2021. Allen continues to be a PPR machine and will look to extend his double-digit target streak when the Chargers visit the Denver Broncos in Week 12.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is as consistent as they come at the position and he will look to continue that success versus the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. The Steelers have been average defending the wide receiver position this year and have allowed just under 13 receptions and 161 yards per game to the position. The veteran should once again be the primary option with running back Austin Ekeler and he will look to continue his weekly double-digit streak alive. Although managers would like to see more than two touchdowns out of Allen, he has made up for it with 65 receptions for 698 yards. Entering Week 11, Allen should be considered a WR1 in 12-team leagues.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen continued his impressive season in a Week 10 loss versus the Minnesota Vikings. The veteran was once again the top receiver for his team and hauled in eight of his 11 targets for 98 yards. Allen is a regular to produce double-digit performances and is as consistent as they come. Although he only has two touchdowns on the season, he now has 65 receptions for 698 yards and continues to produce at a high rate. Allen will draw a tough Pittsburgh Steelers defense in Week 11, but he should continue to be treated as a WR2 with WR1 potential on a weekly basis.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He was limited in practice all week but should be able to post high-end WR2 numbers against a Vikings defense that has struggled against opposing wideouts, allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to the position. Running back Justin Jackson (quad) is out, missing for the second week in a row. He wasn't fantasy relevant anyway though, as Austin Ekeler is dominating the backfield touches in L.A.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings but is expected to play, per head coach Brandon Staley. He was limited in practice this week with a knee issue. The 29-year-old has caught 57 balls for 600 yards and two touchdowns. He averages eight air yards per target and owns 27% of the team's target share, 11th among all wide receivers. Allen is a borderline WR1 against a Vikings defense that ranks 11th in DVOA against the opposing team's top targets. Fantasy managers should check back on Sunday to ensure Allen is active before inserting him into their starting lineups.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) and defensive end Joey Bosa (ankle), who are listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings, are both expected to play on Sunday. Allen never really seemed to be in danger of missing this week despite missing a practice on Wednesday. He enters the week as the No. 30 fantasy wideout in terms of overall points, but he'll be a high-end WR2 against a Minnesota defense that continues to get gashed through the air by opposing wideouts. The Chargers defense/special teams shouldn't be more than a low-end streaming consideration this weekend, but Bosa will be a must-start IDP asset as one of the better pure pass-rushers in the league. He has 24 tackles (17 solo), 10 QB hits, two forced fumbles and 4.5 sacks in eight games this year.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has been one of the most consistent players at his position this season and he will look to continue that with a matchup against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10. The Vikings secondary has struggled through nine weeks and are allowing 187 yards per game and just over a touchdown to opposing pass catchers. With a safe floor of double-digit points on a weekly basis, managers should continue to feel safe about starting the veteran on a weekly basis. For the season, Allen has caught 57 balls for 600 yards and two touchdowns. Heading into Week 10, managers should continue to treat Allen as a WR2 with WR1 upside in one of the better offenses in the NFL.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) returned to the practice field on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. The Chargers were likely holding Allen out of practice on Wednesday as a precaution to let him rest up ahead of the team's Week 10 meeting with the Minnesota Vikings. Allen has found the end zone just two times in 2021, but he remains a strong WR2 for fantasy managers with 57 catches (82 targets) for 600 yards in eight games. The 29-year-old has seen double-digit targets in five games and is coming off his third 100-yard game of the season in the Week 9 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Allen needs to be in all starting lineups against a porous Vikings defense this weekend.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) was unable to suit up for practice Wednesday as he nurses a knee ailment ahead of Sunday's matchup vs. Minnesota. Running back Justin Jackson joined Allen in the DNP column, although there remains ample time for the duo to ramp up activity as the week carries on. Allen is coming off a season-high 12-catch performance last week against the Eagles defense, having logged 90% of his team's offensive snaps en route to a 104-yard performance. A heavily targeted member of the Chargers' passing attack, an absence from Allen would vault Mike Williams into an elite fantasy tier, while Joshua Palmer and Jalen Guyton would likely see their roles increased as well. Check back for updates on Allen's status as they become available.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen continues to be one of the most consistent pass catchers in the league. The veteran saw a team high 13 targets in a Week 9 victory versus the Philadelphia Eagles and caught 12 balls for 104 yards. Week in and week out, Allen continues to have a safe floor of a WR2 with the ceiling of a WR1. Despite Mike Williams getting off to a scorching hot start this season, it has been Allen that has consistently been putting a smile on managers faces. Even with running back Austin Ekeler and Williams playing a big role in the Chargers offense, Allen remains the safest option on a weekly basis and one of the safer options of all players at the wide receiver position. Next up for Allen will be a date versus the Minnesota Vikings and Allen should once again be considered a top option at the wide receiver position.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen will draw a tough matchup versus the Philadelphia Eagles defense in Week 9. The veteran continues to put together a consistent year for managers and has had a safe floor of double-digit points on a weekly basis. The Eagles possess a strong secondary and are allowing just 123 yards per game to opposing pass catchers and one touchdown per game. Despite the tough matchup on paper, Allen continues to be valuable in all formats and should remain a big part of the Chargers game plan on Sunday. Managers should feel safe about suiting Allen up as a WR2 in Week 9.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen put together a nice performance in a Week 8 loss versus the New England Patriots. The reliable receiver was targeted 11 times on the afternoon and caught six balls for 77 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown came on a five-yard pass in the second quarter and gave the Chargers a 14-7 lead at the time. The veteran continues to be a steady source of points and consistency for managers. Moving forward, Allen will draw a tough battle against a solid Philadelphia Eagles secondary and there is a chance that he may be shadowed by cornerback Darius Slay. Regardless of that, Allen remains a big part of the Chargers offense and managers should remain confident starting him. With a solid floor of double-digit points in ppr leagues, Allen should be started as a WR2 with WR1 upside on a weekly basis.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen will draw a favorable matchup versus the New England Patriots in Week 8. Even with the emergence of Mike Williams this year, Allen has continued to be a consistent double-digit source of points for managers this year. As part of a high-scoring offense, Allen only has one touchdown on the year, but he has caught 39 balls for 419 yards. The Patriots secondary hasn't been anything to fear this season and are allowing 172 yards per game to opposing wide receivers. They have also given up seven touchdowns on the season. The Chargers offense got embarrassed in their most recent game and with the team having a bye week to rest and recover, better results should be in store for Sunday. Managers should continue to feel confident firing up Allen as a WR2 with WR1 potential in Week 8.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen caught all five of his targets for 50 yards in a Week 6 loss versus the Baltimore Ravens. The veteran was one of the lone bright spots in a game that saw the Chargers offense unravel. Allen remains a consistent option that can be counted on for double digit points on a weekly basis, but the emergence of Mike Williams as Justin Herbert's top option has knocked Allen down to WR2 territory. Despite that, Williams has a long history of injuries and has been dealing with a knee injury that saw him limited on Sunday. The Chargers also have one of the better offenses in the league and there should be plenty of opportunities for Allen on a weekly basis to prove his value. Allen will enter his bye in Week 7 and square off against the New England Patriots in Week 8.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen continues to be a consistent option for fantasy managers, and he should be able to keep that up against the Baltimore Ravens in a Week 6 matchup. The Ravens defense has struggled as a whole this season and they are allowing a hair under 165 yards to opposing wide receivers this season. They have also allowed four touchdowns on the season to opposing wideouts this year. The veteran continues to be a consistent factor for the Chargers offense, even with Mike Williams emerging as the No. 1 option for quarterback Justin Herbert. With a favorable matchup on deck and the potential of a back-and-forth battle on Sunday, Allen can safely be deployed as a WR2 with WR1 upside in Week 6.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen finished with six catches for 76 yards during the victory over the Browns on Sunday. He had nine targets, seven less than teammate Mike Williams, who had 16. Nevertheless, while this wasn't the worst outing seen from a wideout, it was undoubtedly short of what fantasy managers were hoping to get out of the veteran. Williams and Austin Ekeler combined for five touchdowns in Week 5, so Allen was simply the odd man out for this one. Still, he remains one of the most lethal options at the position, although he's only had two games with over 100 yards during the 2021 campaign. His lone touchdown on the year isn't doing him any favors either. However, Allen can quickly turn on the burners moving ahead, and he should continue to be in starting lineups until things start to get worse on the statistical end.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen will look for better results in Week 5 versus the Cleveland Browns. The veteran hauled in seven receptions in Week 4, but only picked up 36 yards versus the Las Vegas Raiders. Week 5 presents a matchup against a Browns defense that has allowed a touchdown in three of their four games this year and is allowing 152 yards per game to opposing pass catchers. Allen has remained a favorite of quarterback Justin Herbert and continues to play a big part of a dangerous Chargers offense. Wide receiver Mike Williams has exploded onto the scene this season and looks healthy, but Allen continues to put up valuable numbers and remains a big part of the offense with plenty of room for both receivers to succeed and make an impact for managers. Entering Week 5, Allen should be considered a fringe WR1.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was targeted 11 times and caught seven balls for 36 yards in a Week 4 victory against the Las Vegas Raiders. The veteran continues to be a favorite of quarterback Justin Herbert, but he didn't do much in terms of damage this evening. Managers should remain encouraged by the amount of targets Allen continues to get and he is likely to put up more yards in future games. For the season, Allen has now caught 28 balls for 294 yards and one touchdown. Allen will remain a WR1 in Week 5 versus the Cleveland Browns.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (ankle) was limited in Friday's practice. He has been limited in practice this week with an ankle injury. Saturday's injury report should indicate whether Allen suits up for Monday Night Football against the Las Vegas Raiders. The 29-year-old has hauled in 21-of-33 targets for 258 yards and one touchdown over three games in 2021. Allen is borderline WR1 in Week 4, and fantasy managers should expect another big week from the Chargers wideout in a projected high-scoring affair against the Raiders. If Allen is ruled out, Mike Williams, Jalen Guyton, and Austin Ekeler would all see an uptick in targets.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
