'Faster' Keenan Allen hoping for big year


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Chargers receiver Keenan Allen had a great rookie year in 2013 with 71 catches, 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns. But Allen is out to show doubters he's not just a one-hit wonder, reports ESPN.

"One thing for him that's going to be key -- and I think he knows this -- is not to relax and think you're going to just duplicate that year," Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said. "They’re going to know where No. 13 is, have a plan for him and try to take away the things he does well."

Allen said a primary focus has been improving his speed. One reason Allen dropped to the third round in the 2013 draft is that he ran a slow time in the 40-yard dash at his pro day. Still recovering from a knee issue that cut short his final season at Cal, Allen was timed at about 4.65 seconds.

Allen believes he is faster now and fully healthy.

"I mean if you run a 4.3 or 4.4, that obviously says that you're fast," Allen said. "But a 4.6 guy can still make their way into the league. Some of the best receivers in the league ran a 4.5 or 4.6. So now that I'm healthy, I'm pretty sure I'm faster than 4.6."


McCoy says Keenan Allen will see tougher coverage


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that receiver Keenan Allen can't rest on his accomplishments as a rookie in 2013. McCoy said Allen needs to prepare for a tougher year this season.

Allen had 71 catches for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns last year.

"When you’re a young player and had the success he did, now he’s got a bulls-eye on his back," McCoy said. "Everybody is going to know where he is every play. The success he had, that comes with the territory. And that’s a good problem to have. Then again, now you have to get in that much better shape. Now you’re going to see a double team here and there. You’re going to see the best corner on you. You have to work that much harder now. Now it’s all the little fine details that we’ve been talking about that you might have gotten away with in the past. Now when you get matched up with the best corners in the league you have to be at your best every week because they’re going to know where you are."


Keenan Allen wins award


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Chargers wide recevier Keenan Allen was named the Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America.

The PFWA also named Allen to the All-Rookie team. Allen had a strong season for San Diego, catching 71 balls for 1046 yards and eight touchdowns.


Keenan Allen explodes in second half


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) Shut out in the first half, Chargers wideout Keenan Allen caught six passes for 142 yards and two touchdowns after halftime of the playoff loss at Denver. He became the second rookie in NFL history to post 100 receiving yards and two touchdown catches in a playoff game.

Allen caught a pair of 16-yard touchdowns in the fourth quarter and hauled in a 49-yard bomb. He was targeted a team-high nine times.

Having established himself as Philip Rivers' favorite receiver, Allen finishes his rookie year with 10 touchdowns.


Chargers offensive studs fizzle against Bengals


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) The Chargers didn't need their normal output from their offensive stars to pull off a victory against the Bengals.

Eddie Royal was the most successful of the bunch, catching one pass for 33 yards. Keenan Allen managed to catch two balls, but only gained 21 yards. Antonio Gates was well-covered by the Bengals, and caught just one pass for 5 yards. The Chargers did not rely on the passing game, which meant none of their pass catchers had big games. Each player will look to rebound next week against Denver.


Keenan Allen is go-to guy Week 17


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Chargers receiver Keenan Allen caught five passes for a team-high 89 yards in the win over the Chiefs, giving him 71 catches for 1,046 yards in his terrific rookie year. He finished with eight touchdown grabs, but was unable to score for the fourth straight week.

Allen drew a team-high eight targets and had a long reception of 38 yards. He ends the regular season with seven games of 80-plus receiving yards and with the franchise record for receiving yards as a rookie.


Keenan Allen thriving in red zone


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Chargers rookie wideout Keenan Allen is Philip Rivers' go-to guy in the red zone. Allen has drawn a team-high 18 red-zone targets, resulting in six of his eight touchdowns. No other Charger has more than 12 red-zone targets.

Entering Week 17, Allen has scored five times in the past three weeks. He needs a huge finish to win Offensive Rookie of the Year, and it's possible against the Chiefs. In Week 12 at Kansas City, Allen caught nine passes for a season-best 124 yards. This week Kansas City might rest its starters, as the Chiefs have nothing to play for.

Start Allen confidently as a WR1. CBSSports.com senior Fantasy experts Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg rank Allen 10th among receivers this week.


Keenan Allen's touchdown binge continues


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Chargers rookie receiver Keenan Allen made his fifth touchdown catch in the past three games Week 17 vs. Oakland. On a pick play, Allen caught a 4-yard slant for a third-quarter score.

Allen had a bad drop and finished with three catches on seven targets for 26 yards. He's got 55 receiving yards over the past two weeks. But he's up to 66 catches for 957 yards and eight touchdowns. 

On special teams, Allen returned a punt 28 yards but also muffed one, Oakland recovering. Allen plays the Chiefs in Week 17.


Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates ready to go


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Chargers receiver Keenan Allen and tight end Antonio Gates, who were listed as probable, are active for the game vs. Oakland. Allen was dealing with a shoulder injury, while Gates' status was not injury-related.

Chargers injury report includes five offensive probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) The Chargers are quite healthy heading into their critical game Sunday against visiting Oakland. Only wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe) and fullback Le'Ron McClain (hamstring) are questionable. Royal is expected to play.

Also on offense who are probable are wide receiver Keenan Allen (shoulder), tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle), center Nick Hardwick (not injury related), tight end Antonio Gates (not injury related) and featured back Ryan Mathews (foot)


Keenan Allen scores two more Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013)  Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen touched the ball just twice in Week 15 against the Broncos, but still managed to show off his playmaking skills in a 27-20 win Thursday.

Both of Allen's catches came within a nine-minute period in the second quarter, and he finished with a pretty subpar total of just 29 yards. Fortunately, he scored on each of his receptions, the first on a 19-yard reception that saw him hurdle a defender before breaking the plane of the goal line.

Allen has now scored seven touchdowns on the season, four of which have come in his last two games. With two games remaining in his rookie season, Allen has 63 receptions for 931 yards in addition to his seven touchdowns. The Chargers face the Raiders in Week 16. 


Keenan Allen takes the field


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was listed on the injury report for Week 15 against the Broncos with a shoulder issue, but is active for Thursday's game regardless. Allen's status doesn't come as much of a surprise, as he was considered probable after getting through practice. 

Chargers healthy as they prepare for Broncos


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) The Chargers are in excellent shape heading into their Thursday night clash against Denver. Only wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe) and cornerback Johnny Patrick (ankle) are listed as questionable, though both are expected to play. The rest on their injury report are probable.

The defensive players on that list are ends Corey Liuget (knee) and Lawrence Guy (toe), linebacker Jarret Johnson (hand), lineman Sean Lissemore (toe) and cornerback Shareece Wright (foot).

The offensive probables are wide receiver Keenan Allen (shoulder), center Nick Hardwick (neck) and tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle). 


Keenan Allen has momentum heading into Week 15


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has been on a nice run lately -- 100 or more yards in two of his last three games, and two touchdowns in the one game with fewer than 100 yards. He now has five touchdowns and five 100-yard games on the season.

His Week 15 opponent, the Broncos, have allowed five touchdowns to opposing wide receivers in the last four games, with two receivers hitting the 100-yard mark. In Week 10, Allen was held to just 41 receiving yards against the Broncos, but he did lead the team in the category. Additionally, Allen had those two touchdowns last week, but was only targeted three times, as the Changers went run-heavy and Allen injured his shoulder, which he says will be fine for Thursday night. 

Allen has done enough over the course of the season to earn a start in most formats on Thursday night against the Broncos. Keep an eye on his shoulder injury, though, as there could always be a complication. 


Keenan Allen to play through shoulder injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) Chargers rookie wideout Keenan Allen, who caught a pair of touchdown passes Week 14, is "fine" to play through the shoulder injury he suffered in the win over the Giants, reports the Union-Tribune. Allen has 61 catches for 902 yards and five scores heading into Thursday's potential shootout at Denver.

Keenan Allen works past shoulder scare with two TDs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen worked past a shoulder scare with two touchdown receptions during Sunday's game against the Giants in Week 14 with a shoulder injury.

Allen caught a 43-yard touchdown pass in the opening quarter and a 4-yard strike in the second quarter. He injured his shoulder after making his 60th catch of the season, which set a franchise rookie receiving record. He was taken to the locker room for further evaluation and returned late in the second quarter before hauling in his second touchdown of the game. He finished the game with three catches for 59 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-14 victory. He was targeted three times.

Allen has had some issues with his shoulder, as he aggravated a the injury suffered during training camp on Oct. 21 against the Jaguars. He told reporters after the game that he received a painkiller after he underwent X-rays in the first half, which came back negative. He expects the shoulder injury to linger throughout the rest of the season, according to U-T San Diego.

The Chargers will play the Broncos Thursday night in Week 15.

Keenan Allen cracks century mark again in Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen enjoyed another dominant performance as he cracked the century mark for the second straight week during Sunday's loss to the Bengals in Week 13.

Allen was heavily involved in the passing game and caught a 19-yard pass from Philip Rivers in the second quarter. The Chargers scored a touchdown on the following play. He then caught a 22-yard pass in the ensuing drive for his longest gain of the day. He finished the game with a team-high 10 times and caught eight passes for 106 yards (13.3 yards per reception) in a 17-10 defeat.

Allen has cracked the century mark three times over his last five games. He has 32 receptions for 444 yards and a touchdown over that five-game span. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 14 against the Giants.

Keenan Allen explodes for big yardage game


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen had a big game Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Allen was Philip Rivers' primary target Week 12. Allen caught nine balls on a team-leading 12 targets. He had 124 receiving yards. Allen was a first-down machine, moving the chains on seven of his nine receptions. Despite the strong game, Allen was unable to come up with any of the team's three touchdown passes. Allen came into the game with a knee injury, but it appears that is no longer an issue.

Allen will take on the Bengals Week 13.


Keenan Allen ready to go Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is active Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Allen has been dealing with a knee injury, but he was able to fully participate in practice this week. He shouldn't be restricted against Kansas City.


Most Chargers probable on injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) Two Chargers starters have been designated as questionable for the game Sunday in Kansas City. They are wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe) and cornerback Johnny Patrick (concussion).

Royal did not participate in any practice this week, but the same held true the previous three weeks and he was active for every game.

The probables for the Chargers are safety Jahleel Addae (ankle), wide receivers Vincent Brown (shoulder) and Keenan Allen (knee), defensive end Lawrence Guy (toe), center Nick Hardwick (neck), running back Ryan Mathews (hamstring) and linebacker Manti Te'o (elbow).


Chargers coach: Keenan Allen will 'be fine'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2013) Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Monday wide receiver Keenan Allen will "be fine" after hurting his knee Sunday against the Dolphins. Allen has struggled the last two games, totaling seven catches for 86 yards and no touchdowns.

One drive keeps Keenan Allen from being blanked in Miami


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Chargers wideout Keenan Allen was on a roll - as in past tense. His mediocre performance Sunday in a loss to Miami was his second straight.

Allen caught three passes for 45 yards and no touchowns on six targets. After catching 31 passes for 497 yards and three scores in the previous five games, he has just seven receptions for 86 yards and no touchdowns in his last two.

Oddly, Allen managed all his production against the Dolphins on the opening possession of the third quarter. And his taunting penalty after a catch that cost his team 15 yards might have also cost his team a touchdown and the game. He will try to improve his consistency and self-control next Sunday in Kansas City.


Keenan Allen still an automatic start despite weak Week 10


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) Chances are that Week 10 was not the start of a downward trend for Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen. He has been too productive for too long for that to be likely.

The blossoming rookie caught just four passes for 41 yards in the loss to Denver, but Fantasy owners should realize that the game was a dud all the way around for the offense. Allen has been among the premier receivers in the NFL since Week 4 with 35 catches for 538 yards and three touchdowns in six games.

Allen should be targeted often in Miami on Sunday. The Dolphins have been fairly strong against the pass this season, especially in the red zone, but top-level quarterbacks such as Drew Brees, Andrew Luck and Andy Dalton have racked up big yards against them. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers falls into that category.

The three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers place Allen between 20-24 among NFL wideouts this week. He is an ideal second receiver in all formats and, if Week 10 wasn't the start of a trend, a possible No. 1 in deeper leagues. Allen should be in all lineups.


Keenan Allen falls back to Earth Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen saw his production fall Week 10 against the Broncos.

Denver did a solid job defending the pass against the Chargers, and no receiver was able to put up a breakout game. Allen was at least dependable, catching four of his five targets. He finished the game with 41 receiving yards. 

He'll look for a better performance Week 11 against the Dolphins.


Keenan Allen ready for another big game Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Chargers receiver Keenan Allen is aiming for another big game Week 10 against the Broncos.

Denver has struggled to contain opposing wide outs, allowing 25.75 Fantasy points per game. That figure rates 26th in the league. Denver has also allowed 15 passing touchdowns through just eight games. The team has allowed receivers to go for an average of 196.38 yards per game, which rates as the sixth highest total. 

Allen has emerged as a must-start over his last four games. After catching eight passes in the first four games, Allen has exploded for 26 receptions in the last four. He's gone over 100 yards in three of the four games. The Broncos haven't done a good job against wide receivers, making Allen a popular play against a bad pass defense.
