Chargers Ryan Mathews, Keenan Allen skip Tuesday practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) and wide receiver Keenan Allen were unable to practice Tuesday, reports U-T San Diego.

Both players sat out Sunday's overtime win over San Francisco due to injuries and remain uncertain for Week 17 at Kansas City. On Monday coach Mike McCoy told reporters that there's a possibility Mathews can play Sunday. If Mathews is unable to play, Branden Oliver will get the start while Ronnie Brown and Donald Brown work as second and third stringers, respectively. Eddie Royal, Malcom Floyd and Dontrelle Inman will shoulder the load in the passing game if Allen can't play.

The Chargers opened as a 3-point road underdog. The line has now dropped to 2 1/2 points.


Several benefit from Keenan Allen's absence


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) With wide receiver Keenan Allen sidelined by a broken collarbone Week 16 at San Francisco, wide receiver Eddie Royal saw the biggest increase in targets for the Chargers. He led the team with 12, catching 10 passes for 94 yards. But wide receiver Malcom Floyd and tight end Antonio Gates saw an increase as well. Floyd's 10 were a season high. He caught four of them for 50 yards and a score. Gates' nine were tied for his second most this season. he caught two touchdown passes for the first time since Week 8.

For the most part, Gates has gone as quarterback Philip Rivers has gone this season, so maybe his resurgence was more a product of Rivers throwing for 356 yards and four scores than Allen's absence. Likewise, Floyd has been Rivers' downfield threat all season and has had games with similar numbers, even if the targets were less, so if you're going to add a player in Fantasy (not that you could add Gates, of course), it should probably be Royal.

Of course, the four touchdown passes were out of character for Rivers, at least going by recent weeks, so against one of the league's best pass defenses Week 17 at Kansas City, he's unlikely to repeat those numbers. And in that case, Royal's would likely suffer as well. It's not like Allen was consistently delivering for Fantasy owners, so maybe outside of deeper leagues, it's best to pass on Royal altogether.


Chargers list Week 16 inactives vs. 49ers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) The Chargers have listed the following players as inactive for Saturday's Week 16 matchup against the 49ers: running back Ryan Mathews (ankle), wide receiver Keenan Allen (ankle, shoulder), nose tackle Ryan Carrethers (elbow), punter Mike Scifres, cornerback Greg Ducre, linebacker Cordarro Law and defensive end Damion Square.

Mathews and Allen were ruled out on the team's final Week 16 injury report, while Carrethers was deemed probable to play. However, the Chargers will have Philip Rivers (chest, back), who was ruled probable, as well as tight end Ladarius Green (ankle, concussion) and defensive tackle Corey Liuget (ankle), both of whom were questionable.

The Chargers are a 1-point underdog in San Francisco Saturday.


Chargers rule Keenan Allen out of Saturday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Chargers released their final injury report for Saturday’s game at San Francisco and listed wide receiver Keenan Allen (ankle) as out.

Also ruled out is running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) and punter Mike Scifres (shoulder). Ladarius Green (concussion) and Corey Liuget are listed as questionable. Quarterback Philip Rivers (chest/back) and Ryan Carrethers (elbow) are being listed as probable.

The Chargers are 1 1/2-point underdogs.


Chargers' Keenan Allen ruled out for Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Chargers wideout Keenan Allen has been ruled out for Week 16.

Allen broke his collarbone Week 15 against the Broncos, so the news is expected. Head coach Mike McCoy confirmed that Allen wouldn't play at a press conference on Wednesday. The injury will likely keep Allen out the rest of the season. If that's the case, Allen would finish with 783 yards on 77 catches. He scored four touchdowns in his sophomore year.


Chargers WR Keenan Allen has broken collarbone


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Chargers wideout Keenan Allen suffered a broken collarbone in addition to an ankle injury Week 15 against the Broncos, the Chargers announced. While the team said only that Allen is "not expected" to play Saturday at San Francisco, the second-year pro likely is done for the year.

Allen leads San Diego with 77 catches for 783 yards. He ranks fourth on the team with four touchdown catches.


Chargers' Keenan Allen forced to exit game with ankle injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen had to leave Sunday’s game against the Broncos with an ankle injury. Allen had to be carted to the locker room. He is questionable to return.

Keenan Allen a victim of matchup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Hopefully, you didn't go head over heels for Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen after his back-to-back 100-yard games in Weeks 12 and 13. His matchup Week 14 against New England had disaster written all over it. The Patriots are excellent at neutralizing top wide receivers, thanks in no small part to star cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Allen and quarterback Philip Rivers had a good thing going, though, so look for him to get back on track Week 15 at Denver. He had nine catches for 73 yards and a touchdown against the Broncos in Week 8.

For more major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


Malcom Floyd leads quiet Chargers receiving night vs. Patriots


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd caught three of his six targets for a team-high 54 yards and one touchdown in his team's 23-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 14.

Floyd made an excellent play on a slightly overthrown ball after beating his man early in the second quarter, hauling in a 15-yard touchdown to put the Chargers ahead for the first time Sunday. They would maintain that lead until the fourth quarter, where they surrendered 10 points and took the loss.

Running back Donald Brown and tight end Antonio Gates shared the team lead in receptions, with both players hauling in five passes. Brown gained 49 yards on six targets while Gates managed just 34 yards on eight targets. Eddie Royal caught just two of his five targets for 30 yards, while nominal No. 1 receiver Keenan Allen was held to three yards on two receptions.

The Chargers will certainly be looking for a better effort by the passing game in the team's Week 15 matchup with the Broncos.


Keenan Allen no slam dunk this week


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) If you own Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen in Fantasy, you've probably spent the last five days celebrating his return to prominence. After the kind of numbers he had been putting up, back-to-back 100-yard games with a combined three touchdowns is a case of persistence rewarded.

But don't go getting comfortable. Allen and Philip Rivers may have a good thing going right now, but that rarely matters against New England, the Chargers' Week 14 opponent. The Patriots typically double-team their opponent's best wide receiver, confident that Darrelle Revis can shut down the No. 2 target on his own. And if Revis covers Allen himself, that's not exactly an improvement.

The Patriots secondary has been so effective this season that they've allowed the fourth-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers even though they rank a modest 23rd against the pass. That's mostly a flow-of-the-game stat, by the way. The Patriots are so often ahead by so much that their opponent's only hope is to throw against them.

That might not be enough to save Allen this week, though. You only have so many options, and obviously, his upside from one week to the next is higher than most, but Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him outside their top 30 wide receivers with this matchup.


Keenan Allen finding his stride


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen continues to pick up the pace, as he posted his second 100-yard performance in a row in Week 13 against the Ravens.

Allen, who had just one 100-yard game in the first 10 games of the season, went for 121 yards Sunday, one week after racking up 104 yards. He hauled in 11 of the 15 passes thrown his way and scored twice, his first multi-score game since Week 14 a year ago.

Allen scored five of his eight touchdowns during his rookie season in the final four games, and looks to be on his way to a similar late-season run. He has four touchdowns in his last five ghames, and is averaging 81.6 yards per game in that span, after averaging 50.6 yards with no touchdowns in his previous seven games.

Allen has re-emerged as Phillip Rivers' go-to target, and it couldn't have come at a better time for his Fantasy owners. Allen has a tough matchup on the way in Week 14 against the Patriots, but that game could end up being a shootout, so Allen should be a solid starting option anyways. 


Chargers WR Keenan Allen finds paydirt twice in win over Ravens


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen came down with a pair of touchdown receptions during Sunday's game against the Ravens in Week 13.

Allen made a a diving catch in the end zone for a 12-yard touchdown in the opening quarter. He also surpassed the 100-yard threshold for the third time this season. He came down with a 23-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter for his second score of the day. He was targeted a season-high 15 times and finished with 11 catches for 121 yards and two scores in a 34-33 victory. He has compiled 225 receiving yards and three touchdowns over his last two games.

The Chargers will host the Patriots in Week 14.


Keenan Allen turning over a new leaf?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) For the second time this season, Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen topped 100 yards in a game Week 12 against St. Louis, and for the second time this season, he found the end zone, scoring on a 29-yard catch in the fourth quarter. It was the first time he did both in the same game, which was the kind of production Fantasy owners expected from him coming into the season.

So is he finally delivering on his potential? Oh, who knows?

Here are the positives for Allen: With another nine targets in Week 12, he has averaged 10.8 over his last five games, a clear improvement from his first six, and his primary competition for red-zone looks, tight end Antonio Gates, has been conspicuously absent the last three weeks.

Here are the negatives for Allen: Even with all those extra targets, he has still averaged just 69.0 yards over his last five games, and quarterback Philip Rivers has stopped throwing touchdown passes not just to Gates but in general.

I have enough confidence in Rivers and the Chargers offense as a whole to keep Allen on my roster, but I'm not activating him based on this performance.


Keenan Allen leads the way Week 12


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Chargers wideout Keenan Allen caught six passes for a game-high 104 yards in the Week 12 win over the Rams, his second 100-yard game this season. Allen scored his second touchdown this season when he took a slip screen 29 yards in the fourth quarter.

Allen drew a team-high nine targets and has 33 catches over the last five games. He'll visit the Ravens in Week 13.


Chargers WR Keenan Allen catches eight passes in Week 11 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen had a team-high eight receptions on 13 targets for 63 yards in his team's 13-6 win over the Raiders in Week 11.

Allen continues to be limited to short- and medium-length plays, and his long reception in the win went for just 13 yards. He's had just one game this season with a reception of 20 yards or more, and Sunday's performance will drag his per-catch average underneath 10 yards. Despite the lack of big plays, Allen has averaged more than 11 targets over his last four games. His next chance for a breakout comes in Week 12 against the Rams.


Chargers WR Keenan Allen held under 50 yards again Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen took a step back and was held out of the end zone in a 37-0 defeat to Miami in Week 9.

Allen was held under 50 receiving yards for the third time in five games. He was targeted a team-high nine times and finished with four catches for 47 yards. He has 47 catches for 474 yards and a touchdown on the season.

The Chargers will head into a bye week before facing the Raiders in Week 10.


Keenan Allen still searching for the big play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen put together his second double-digit Fantasy point effort of the season Thursday, but does Week 8 represent a turning point in his season?

Allen finally found the end zone for the first time all season en route to a seven-catch, 73-yard effort, which made for his best outing of the season. However, we still see some of the big issues that have limited him all season lurking in Allen's supposed breakout game.

Targets and catches have been there all season for Allen, but he hasn't done much with them, and that was still something of an issue Thursday. He had a season-high 41 yards after the catch, but that came out to an average of just 4.6 per reception. That is still down from 6.2 per catch a year ago.

Allen's role in the offense is still big enough that there is reason for confidence, but his inability to break off the big play remains troubling. Until he starts to turn that trend around, Allen's upside remains limited. 


Chargers WR Keenan Allen finds the end zone Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Chargers wideout Keenan Allen managed to find the end zone Week 8.

Allen proved to be Philip Rivers' safety blanket throughout the night. He ran a lot of underneath routes that wound up going for short gains. Allen managed to haul in nine catches for 73 yards and a score during the contest. His longest reception during the game was 19 yards. 

Allen's touchdown came on a quick pass down near the goal line. He received a block from a receiver, and was able to quickly shoot past a defender for the 2 yard score. Allen will look for more Week 9 against the Dolphins. 


Chargers' Keenan Allen 'pretty patient' amid frustrating first half


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) It's quite evident Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is having a much different season in 2014 after having a breakout rookie campaign in 2013. After totaling 71 catches for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns last season, Allen has just 34 catches for 354 yards and no touchdowns in seven games this season.

"People, they aren't stupid," wide receivers coach Fred Graves said, per U-T San Diego. "They're not just going to let him run free. They're going to take some things away."

Allen has seen a lot more press coverage this season. He does have a team-high 34 catches, but he is averaging just 10.4 yards per catch and has had just two catches for 20-plus yards after totaling 16 as a rookie.

"They're pretty close to me after I catch the ball," Allen said.

Perhaps one of the biggest frustrations, especially if you play Fantasy Football, is Allen has no touchdowns. Though, Allen is pretty confident he will start scoring touchdowns.

"It'll come," he said. "I'm pretty patient. Frustrated, for sure, but I'm pretty patient. I understand what's going on with the offense, and we're winning, so it's not a big deal."


There's no easy answer for Keenan Allen's struggles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Through seven mostly-disappointing games, it has become clear that Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is the victim of the dreaded sophomore slump. And the weird thing is, there isn't a clear, obvious reason why.

Allen is on pace for 118 targets and 77 yards receptions this season, both of which would be improvements over last year. Unfortunately, his pace for yards is lacking. He is on pace for just 809.1 yards, more than 200 less than his rookie season, and has also failed to find the end zone through seven games; he had three by this point last season.

One big problem for Allen is that he and Philip Rivers simply cannot get on the same page when it comes to the deep ball. Though Rivers has targeted him nine times on passes beyond 20 yards, Allen has caught just one, for 22 yards. However, he had just two receptions on passes thrown deeper than 20 yards last season, so it isn't like that is the main culprit in his regression.

The big issue, then, is that Allen still isn't making plays with the ball in his hands. He is averaging just 2.9 yards after the catch, down from 6.0. That is almost the entire difference between his 14.7 yards per catch average as a rookie and his 10.4 mark now.

Allen has gone from one of the league's best playmakers as a rookie to someone who can barely get anything done after the catch. Though he makes for a solid buy-low candidate based on last season alone, Fantasy owners are understandably running out of patience. At this point, he makes for a risky play every week.  


Chargers WR Keenan Allen catches six passes in Week 7


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen caught a team-high six passes on 10 targets for 58 yards in San Diego's 23-20 loss to Kansas City in Week 7.

Allen was the focal point of the passing attack Sunday, but he continues to have trouble breaking big plays. It was his third straight game averaging less than 10 yards per catch, and he's barely surpassed that mark on the season, logging 34 receptions and 354 yards while failing to catch a touchdown in seven games. He'll look for a long-awaited breakout performance when the Chargers head to Denver for a Thursday night battle in Week 8.


Malcom Floyd the latest headache for Keenan Allen


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was once again the odd man out in what's looking like an overcrowded passing attack Week 6 at Oakland. This time, Malcom Floyd emerged as the go-to guy, leading the way with five catches for 103 yards and a touchdown.

Even with Eddie Royal departing in the third quarter with a groin injury, Keenan Allen had just three catches for 27 yards. It was the third time in four games he had less than 30 receiving yards and the fifth time in six games he had less than 60.

Of course, Allen's six targets were only one short of Floyd's seven. He remains the most targeted of the Chargers' wide receivers, making him difficult to pass up in Fantasy, but apart from Week 4 against Jacksonville, when he had 10 catches for 135 yards, he hasn't been able to deliver on those targets. Floyd, in fact, has done far more. He now has three touchdowns and three games with 70 yards or more.

Floyd is still an iffy Fantasy option because he's so hit or miss from week to week, but Allen may be a straight-up sit unless Royal's injury is serious enough to keep him out for a few weeks.


Chargers WR Keenan Allen does little in win over Oakland


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Chargers wide receivers Keenan Allen wasn't much of a factor in a Week 6 victory over the Raiders.

Allen was held without a catch in the first half. he caught a 5-yard pass in the third quarter, and came down with a 19-yard and a 3-yard reception in the final period. He was thrown to six times and finished with three grabs for 27 yards in a 31-28 victory. He has 296 receiving yards this season.

The Chargers will host the Chiefs in Week 7.


Keenan Allen, Malcom Floyd good to go Week 6 for Chargers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Chargers wide receivers Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd were both labeled active for Week 6 against the Raiders in Oakland. Allen was dealing with a quad injury and was never in any danger of missing game action. Floyd was questionable on the injury report leading up to the game because of a calf injury.

Chargers list 16 players on Week 6 injury report


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) The Chargers listed 16 players on their final injury report leading up to Week 6 at Oakland. Running backs Donald Brown (concussion) and Ryan Mathews (knee), along with linebacker Manti Te'o (foot) and cornerback Shareece Wright (knee) were ruled out for Sunday.

Deemed questionable were the following players: wide receiver Malcom Floyd (calf), tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle), outside linebackers Jarret Johnson (back, ankle) and Cordarro Law (ankle), offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger (back), safety Darrell Stuckey (quad) and linebacker Reggie Walker (ankle).

Wide receiver Keenan Allen (quad), outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) and Dwight Freeney (knee), inside linebacker Donald Butler (shoulder) and tight end David Johnson (knee, shoulder) were the only players ruled probable for the game.
