If Allen could keep from getting injured, he would have been one of the top fantasy receivers over the last two seasons, but, alas, he hasn't been healthy. Injuries are impossible to predict, just as if a player will stay healthy. Allen is a guy I will be targeting if his ADP doesn't get out of controlEdelman should have a better all-around season with Brady there all season, but the Patriots aren't going to focus on one receiver unless Randy Moss returns in his prime

Allen is the best receiver on the Chargers team, but he has struggled with health the last two years, so I cannot rank him as a WR1.Edelman had a very strong finish to the season and it concluded with him tallying 98 receptions for 1,106 yards and 3 touchdowns. He should be a WR3 in 2017.
