Fantasy Impact: It would be tough to start Allen at this point. Even if he does start, Allen will be less than 100% and might not be that effective. If you have other options at WR or flex, it would probably be in your best interest to go in that direction.
San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen suffered a broken collarbone in Sundays game against Denver. Allen left Sundays game after injuring his ankle. Now news of the broken collarbone comes out two days later.

Fantasy Impact: Allen was not even targeted in the first half as Philip Rivers clearly stayed away from Revis. After great back to back games this outing frustrated fantasy owners as Allen could not gain separation all night. He has another tough matchup this week vs. the Broncos secondary but he has done well against Denver so far in his career. Owners should fire him up as a solid WR2 this week.
San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen had a huge game Sunday Week 13 against the Ravens.
Fantasy Impact: Allen hauled in 11 receptions for 121 yards and 2 touchdowns. Allen made big plays all day as the Ravens secondary could not contain him. This is back to back 100 yard games for Allen who seems to be paying off for fantasy owners who remained patient with him.

Fantasy Impact: Allen had a big second half scoring the game winning touchdown for the Chargers on a bubble screen he took to the end zone.

Fantasy Impact: QB Philip Rivers and Allen had a good chemistry Thursday night against a much improved Broncos secondary.

WR Keenan Allen had yet another sub par performance for a #1 WR having just 6 catches from 10 targets for 58 yards and 0 TDs.
Fantasy Impact: This has been par for the course for Allen and his fantasy owners this year. Owners who drafted as their #1 WR are feeling buyers remorse as QB Philip Rivers has too many weapons to have a standout receiver. Next week could be a shoot out as San Diego travels to Denver to face the high-octane Bronco offense.
Allen posted very modest numbers against the Raider secondary during Week 6, catching 3 balls from 6 targets for 27 yards.

Fantasy Impact: This is now 4 out of 5 weeks that Allen has 5 or less catches. So far for the season Allen is 3rd on the team in receiving yards and still hasn't caught a touchdown pass from Rivers who is second in TD passes in the league. With all the other options that Rivers has right now, you might have to bench Allen until he becomes relevant in fantasy. He's a boom or bust right now from week to week.

Rivers, however, has used a balanced passing attack using a different receiver each week as the biggest threat. It will be interesting to see how this plays out Week 5 when the Jets come to town. Allen is a must start if you have him.
Keenan Allen has been listed as questionable for Sundays game at Buffalo, with a groin injury.
Fantasy Impact: Allen has a great matchup with Buffalo, but he is a true game-time decision. The good news is the game is an early one on Sunday and owners can adjust accordingly. Allen has practiced the last two days, but he was limited. If he plays, he will be pushing WR1 status.

Fantasy Impact: Next week will be even a tougher matchup for Allen and the receiving corps as the Chargers host the Seattle Seahawks and their high-flying defense.

Fantasy Impact: The second year pro is ranked near the likes of Vincent Jackson and Randall Cobb in WR rankings. Instead of sneaking under the radar with defenses like he did last year, Allen will have more attention on him this season. He should be a solid WR#2 putting up similar numbers or better this year, dependent on Rivers play.
