Bucking the injury-prone label with back-to-back injury-free top 12 fantasy finishes at WRFit the bill nicely in KC backfield after K. Hunt suspension/release - No. 2 RB in half-PPR FAN PPG over final 3 weeks - HC Reid's comments of RB committee ring hollow given that has never been his style
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Allen has been incredibly consistent over the last two seasons, with 102 catches in 2017 and 97 last year. He's got an excellent connection with Philip Rivers, and should once again be in line for a borderline WR1 season in all formats. The only remote reason for concern is the return of Hunter Henry and the evolution of Mike Williams, but Allen should get his. The ankle injury that should keep him out this preseason should not threaten his availability for the opener, so don't shy away from him on draft day. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Allen continues to produce big numbers every time he is on the field. This year may be a different story, though, as Mike Williams is expected to take a major step forward and Hunter Henry is returning. Allen should still lead this team in receptions and yards but he isn't exactly a second-tier fantasy weapon anymore.Williams entered 2018 with virtually no production to his name but exploded when given the opportunity in Andy Reid's offense. So long as he can get healthy and earn his spot as the starter, he will be a top 20 running back with room for much more. That upside will depend entirely on his large of a role he can handle, as the offense is certain to score plenty of points, plus Andy Reid is talking up a committee with Carlos Hyde.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Allen had 97 receptions for 1,196 yards and 6 touchdowns last year. He is a solid WR2 on an offense that no longer relies on him as much as they did in years past in the passing game.Williams had a nice close to the season and he should have a big role in their offense in 2019. Williams is a high-end RB2 with RB1 upside in one of the best offenses in the NFL.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 The committee talk has me scared of Damien, largely because his price is so steep. I still like him, but not in the first round
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Keenan Allen is only 27 years old. Keenan Allen has over 1000 yards in 3 of 4 seasons in which he was healthy. Keenan Allen was on pace to put 1450/8 the year he missed half the season. Keenan Allen is perpetually one of the most consistent fantasy players in the league and is averaging 100 catches per season over the last two seasons. This man is an absolute lock for 95/1100/5 and that would be disappointing. No more Tyrell Williams which may open more of a deeper route tree for KA, his Y/R dropped by a yard and a half from 17-18, Hunter Henry is back so defenses will have a legitimate threat in the middle of the field to help KA with more single coverage matchups and more space to operate. Everyone is on Mike Williams to explode, what about Keenan Allen just doing exactly what he's done for years, with a slight uptick. He can go 110/1400/8 if all goes well. Sign me up.The #1 RB in an Andy Reid offense is a fantasy stud. It's science. So get the RB that is going to lead this backfield. Oh yeah, Reid also never employs an RBBC, so don't believe that either.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Allen played three games last season without Melvin Gordon and his numbers increased across the board: - Target share jumped from 28% to 34% - Receptions went from 6 to 8 per game - PPR PPG: 16 - 22 And the thing is, his numbers with MelGo are still very good. Allen is a player with a set role that is going to put up solid fantasy numbers. He's being undervalued in drafts.Damien Williams was a starter in 5 games last season. In those five games he saw at least 10 rushing attempts and at least 6 targets in every game but one. Furthermore, he scored a TD in every one of those games and actually scored 8 in total. Williams was extended by the Chiefs this offseason and only has Carlos Hyde (The worst receiving back in the NFL over the past few seasons - oh and his rushing numbers aren't very good either) and 5'8" 201lb 6th rounder Darwin Thompson. Damien Williams is not going to lose his job if healthy. Andy Reid also mentioned that he'd use an RBBC "like in Philly." If you look at Andy Reid's RBs over the last FIFTEEN seasons, he has used a RBBC one time. That was in 2009, when the Eagles were transitioning from Westbrook to McCoy. Other than that, Reid has sprinkled RBs like Ware and West in at times but that's about it. I expect this "RBBC" to be more of the same - a RBBC of sprinkles. Grab Williams at a value.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Over the past two seasons Allen has averaged 100 receptions for a little under 1,300 yards and 6 TD's. Once considered injury prone by the public, Allen has put together back to back healthy seasons, and has done so has a target hog in the offense. The return of Hunter Henry will impact his TD upside, but his targets should remain the same, since Tyrell left in FA. His early third round ADP is extremely fair, as my projections have him finishing the season as a low end WR 1. I don't see a path for him finishing in the top 3...but I also don't see a path to him busting aside from a freak injury. Allen is a guy I would draft, but not one I'd ever reach on.Damien Williams has as much upside as any running back in fantasy. Unfortunately, he also has a wide range of outcomes. He suffered a hamstring injury early in camp, which forced him to miss a week and a half of practice. There are now reports Andy Reid might go with a committee approach...something he hasn't done since his days with the Eagles. We're going to need to watch closely what happens for the remainder of camp. If he wins the starting job, and doesn't suffer a setback...then I'm drafting him. If it's a clear split, or he suffers another injury, then I'll fade.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
With Tyrell Williams taking off to the Raiders, will Allen play on the perimeter much more, or do those targets go to Travis Benjamin? My guess is that he stays in the same role, though he might have a few more targets come his way. Throughout his time in the league, Allen has been a bit more up-and-down than fantasy owners would like, but his potential increase in targets could even that out a bit. He's a fine low-end WR1 if you go RB-heavy in the first two roundsIt's never a bad thing to have the running back attached to Andy Reid's offense, though Williams shouldn't go inside the top few rounds due to the question marks surrounding him. He's still yet to have more than 13 carries in a regular season game, so what makes us believe he's going to stand up to a full workload? The Chiefs also signed Carlos Hyde, who happens to be a pretty good running back, though all many remember is that he didn't produce while on the Jaguars. If you were deciding between Hyde and Williams on the same roster at this point last year, Hyde would've been the no-brainer. Williams may be a stud, but he also comes with dud potential
Kevin Wheeler
DraftWize
 I'm assuming Williams isn't the starter over the entire season. Williams had a nice 4-game run to end the season, but was under 13 touches in two of them, he won't be the only fantasy producer in this backfield.
