Keenan Allen expected to be ready for training camp

Pro Football Talk is reporting Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Allen, who tore is ACL in Week 1 of the 2016 season, is not expected to be available for OTAs in the spring. However, per reports, the injury-prone wideout should be ready for the start of training camp that begins in late-July. Despite missing 26 games in his four-year career, Allen is still considered a top receiver when he is on the field and healthy. Barring a setback, Allen should enter 2017 in the low-end WR1 conversation for fantasy football purposes.

Keenen Allen placed on injured reserve

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ACL) was placed on the injured reserve list on Monday after suffering a season-ending torn ACL injury in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

The Chargers will likely rely on Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams to step up with Allen lost for the season. Travis Benjamin is San Diego's new No. 1 wideout in Allen's absence which makes his fantasy value skyrocket. Keep in mind that James Jones is a free agent and spent the summer with the Chargers. He knows the offense and could be an instant add for fantasy football purposes if he was to sign with San Diego.

Keenan Allen expected to miss remainder of 2016 season with knee injury

Keenan Allen got off to fast start against Marcus Peters and the Kansas City Chiefs as he hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 63 yards in less than two full quarters. However, just a couple minutes shy of halftime he went down with a non-contact knee injury. The injury is expected to be season-ending, but the team will give a final disclosure soon.

Fantasy Impact

This is nothing short of a major disappointment and a big blow to a pass-happy Chargers offense. Their offensive attack was clearly not as effective following his departure. This injury leaves the window open for second-year receiver Tyrell Williams to see increased snaps and targets. If you invested high in Allen, Williams may be a waiver wire target to help ease the blow to your fantasy roster.

Keenan Allen exits Week 1 with knee injury

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) was carted off of the field in Week 1's contest against the Kansas City Chiefs with an apparent right knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Allen exited Week 1 with an apparent knee injury. After missing the majority of 2015 with a lacerated kidney, Allen could be facing another long-term injury in 2016. Travis Benjamin's fantasy value skyrockets if Allen is to miss extended time this year.

Keenan Allen looks to continue hot streak against Chiefs in Week 1

Although Keenan Allen has only been healthy enough to face the Chiefs in one of the last four Chargers vs. Chiefs match ups, he has averaged six receptions for 90 yards in his career against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

With the Chiefs pass rush in question through injuries, and a very young Chiefs secondary, Allen could be setup for another monster WR1 performance in Week 1.
