Keenan Allen looks 'good' entering training camp

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is suggesting wide receiver Keenen Allen (knee) "looks as good as he did before he got hurt."

Fantasy Impact

Allen is returning from a torn ACL he suffered early in Week 1 of the 2016 season. The oft-injured 25-year-old wideout, who missed 26 career games since 2013, must prove he can remain healthy and return to the high-level of play he's showcased while on the field. If Allen can play close to a full 16-game slate, he has the ability to produce back end WR1 numbers.

Keenan Allen running at 'full-speed'

The Los Angeles Times is reporting Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) participated in "full team drills' at OTAs. “We’ve been real cautious with him. We’re just working him in right now on a limited basis. He’s full go,” Lynn said of Allen via the Los Angeles Times. “…He’s been running well. He’s been running routes well. And, he’s done a hell of a job in the training room.”

Fantasy Impact

Allen, who suffered a torn ligament in his right knee in the 2016 season opener, is a "full go" at OTAs. Barring a setback, the 25-year-old wideout will also be a full participant for the start of training camp in late July. Allen is expected to open the upcoming season as the Chargers' No. 1 receiver. Despite the crowded depth chart, still consider Allen in the back-end WR1 conversation for the 2017 fantasy football campaign, but his value could continue to take a hit if Mike Williams lives up to his draft hype.

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.
