WR Allen had one of his best performances of the season catching 9 balls from 13 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: QB Philip Rivers and Allen had a good chemistry Thursday night against a much improved Broncos secondary. Allen for one of the rare times this season was Rivers' focal point in the passing attack. It will be interesting to see if this will start a trend as next week San Diego travels to Miami for an early Sunday game.

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: Allen has been inconsistent this year for fantasy owners. There are so many weapons for QB Philip Rivers to choose from, and it is hit and miss for Allen so far this year. This is very frustrating for fantasy owners who drafted Allen as their #1 WR.

Keenan Allen was targeted a team high seven times on Sunday, but only came up with 3 catches for 25 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.

WR Keenan Allen had the most targets (11) from QB Philip Rivers, catching 10 balls for 135 yards leading the team in all categories. The only downside to the day for Allen was that he was kept out of the endzone.

Fantasy Impact: Allen is proving to be one of the 'go to' guys for Rivers and has had a pretty consistent start to the season. 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.

WR Keenan Allen caught 5 balls for 55 yards Sunday afternoon as the Chargers upset the Seattle Seahawks 30-21.

Fantasy Impact: Allen played his role in helping the offense be successful in the Charger win. However, Allen didn't do much to help fantasy owners. Next week could be better as San Diego travels to Buffalo to face the 2-0 Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Proceed as normal with Allen. However, he will more than likely be covered by standout cornerback Richard Sherman all day long. There may be limited targets for Allen today.

San Diego receiver Keenan Allen had a slow night against a stingy Arizona Cardinals defense. He had 5 catches from 9 targets for only 37 yards. Allen was held out of the endzone as well.

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. 'Lock down' corner Richard Sherman will more than likely be covering Allen for most of the night and the fantasy points might be hard to come by for the San Diego wideout.

Keenan Allen is projected to catch 5 pass for 64 yards and a possible touchdown. The consensus has Allen scoring just over 10 fantasy points during the Monday night late game against the Arizona Cardinals (Source: Fantasy Pros)

Fantasy Impact: Allen will be up against a tough secondary which has 'lock down' corner Patrick Peterson. This match-up will show how elite Allen has become as a NFL wideout.

Ricky Henne of Chargers.com noted that WR Keenan Allen has started camp the same way he ended the 2013 campaign. With a year under his belt, Allen is more comfortable and confident with the system. (Source: Chargers.com)

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.
