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.


Keenan Allen, Eddie Royal both iffy starts


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) The Raiders are a poor defensive team. This much is certain.

But they're also a poor offensive team, which means that when the opposition pulls ahead, it generally stays ahead. So while the Raiders rank 31st against the run, allowing 158.3 yards per game, they rank a surprising fifth against the pass, allowing 207.0 yards per game. It doesn't mean they're good against quarterbacks; it just means quarterbacks don't have to be good against them.

The Chargers are built to pass. This much is also certain.

But now that Branden Oliver has entered the scene, they have enough of a running game to defer to it if they jump out to an early lead. That's what happened to wide receivers Keenan Allen and Eddie Royal in a blowout win in Week 5. Antonio Gates scored the touchdowns early, and that was it.

The chances of it happening again are real enough that you should think twice about starting Allen or Royal despite what appears to be a favorable matchup. It's not that either are bad starts necessarily, but if you have options at wide receiver, the "OAK" next to their names shouldn't steer you toward them.


Chargers WRs Keenan Allen, Malcom Floyd probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Chargers wide receivers Keenan Allen (quad) and Malcom Floyd (calf) were both limited in Wednesday practice, but are expected to play Sunday in Oakland.

Allen has yet to score a touchdown this season and has not recorded more than 55 yards in receiving in four of five games. Floyd, who was removed from the Sunday shutout of the Jets with his injury, has 12 catches for 259 yards and two scores.


Don't give up on Keenan Allen


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has not to this point been the beneficiary of Philip Rivers' improved play, though it is not due to a lack of opportunities.

Allen is on pace for 80 receptions and 115 targets through five games, well ahead of the 71-catch, 105-target pace he established as a rookie. The reason his production has been so disappointing so far is due to what he is doing with each reception; Allen is averaging just 3.1 yards after catch, compared to 6.2 a year ago. His average of yards picked up before the catch was 8.6 a year ago, compared 7.7 as a rookie.

The Chargers' passing offense has not lacked for big plays overall, as 18.1 percent of completed passes have gone for more than 20 yards, compared to 15.8 last season. However, just two of Allen's 25 receptions have gone for 20-plus yards, well off his rate from a year ago.

Allen has been limited at times by a groin injury, but there is no sign that is the reason for his slow start. In fact, Fantasy owners have to be pretty optimistic about his chances of figuring it out, considering how big a role he is playing in the offense.

The Chargers may not have to pass the ball much in Week 6, with the Raiders on the schedule, so he may not turn things around immediately. Still, don't give up on Allen's long-term value, with how much potential he has in this offense. 


Here we go again with Keenan Allen?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) After looking like he had gotten his season on track with 10 catches for 135 yards Week 4 against the Jaguars, Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen went back to disappointing everyone with three catches for 25 yards Week 5 against the Jets.

So is that it? Are we done with him in Fantasy? Not so fast. See, for every way he fell short in this game, he still led the Chargers with seven targets, meaning he was still quarterback Philip Rivers' go-to guy. That wasn't so evident in Weeks 2 and 3.

Between that and the fact the Chargers threw the ball only nine times in the second half of a blowout victory, I think Allen deserves a pass. Granted, we've given him several passes already this season, but for as much as you invested in him, you want to make absolutely sure he's not who you thought he was before changing course.

Consider this: If a nobody put up the numbers Allen did in Week 4 and then followed it up with this performance, would you be dropping him? Probably not.


Chargers' Keenan Allen held in check Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Chargers wideout Keenan Allen was held in check Week 5 against the Jets.

Allen caught just three balls for 25 yards. Despite the poor performance, Allen was targeted a team-high seven times, so Philip Rivers did try to get him the ball. Allen had just one reception after halftime. He'll look for more against the Raiders Week 6. 


Keenan Allen rises to the occasion


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) After a dreadful start to the season in which he seemed to lose targets every week, I was on the verge of dropping Keenan Allen -- a top-20 wide receiver coming into the season -- in standard 12-team leagues. His performance Week 4 against Jacksonville erased any thoughts of that.

Though he didn't score a touchdown and still has yet to find the end zone in four games this season, Allen led the team with 10 catches for 135 yards. Granted, it was against a Jaguars defense that entered the day ranked 30th against the pass, but the fact that Allen led the Chargers with 11 targets, four more than Eddie Royal, shows he's still in Rivers' sights.

And Rivers will need all the help he can get going forward with Donald Brown unable to muster anything on the ground against the league's 32nd-ranked run defense. If the Chargers become as pass heavy as I expect them to with both Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead sidelined, Allen has more games like this one ahead of him.


Keenan Allen goes off Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen turned in an excellent performance Week 4 against the Jaguars.

Allen was targeted a team high 11 times during the contest. He hauled in 10 passes for 135 yards. Allen was a constant outlet for quarterback Philip Rivers. Allen wound up being a first down machine during the game. All but one of his receptions resulted in a first down. Despite the exceptional game, Allen did not score a touchdown.

He'll look for more Week 5 against the Jets. 


Keenan Allen labeled probable for Week 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) As expected, Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was officially ruled probable for Week 4 at home against Jacksonville. Allen, who is working past a groin injury, was never in danger of missing game action. He was a full participant in practice all three days leading up to Sunday.

No silver lining for Keenan Allen


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) Fantasy owners were hoping for Keenan Allen to break through in a big way in Week 3. It didn't happen. Despite playing against his weakest opponent of the season with the Chargers run game down to its third string running back, Allen had a season-low two targets, catching both for 17 measly yards. 

It's troubling since Allen had 15 targets and 10 catches in his first two games combined, but Fantasy owners should remain patient as the ultimate litmus test comes in Week 4. That's when Allen and the Chargers take on the Jaguars and their weak defense. If he can't get it done then, it's officially panic time. Allen owners might start looking at alternatives on waivers in case Allen can't get it going in Week 4. 


Keenan Allen silent in victory


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen played through a groin injury Sunday against the Bills, but didn't make much of an impact in the 22-10 win in Week 3.

Allen got the start but was targeted just twice in the passing game, good for just fifth-most on the team. He hauled in both of those passes thrown his way for just 17 yards, his lowest total since Week 2 of his rookie season.

Allen has struggled to make an impact through three games, hauling in just 12 passes for 109 yards. He will look for more success in Week 4 against the Jaguars.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is active and in uniform, as expected, for Week 3 against the Bills Saturday. Allen had been limited at times during the week of practice with a groin injury.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) A groin injury has Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen deemed as questionable for the Sunday game in Buffalo. He has been limited in practice the last two days.

Allen has 10 catches for 92 yards in two games.


Keenan Allen participates early in Friday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Chargers wideout Keenan Allen provided some encouragement in regard to his availability Sunday in Buffalo with his participation during the open-to-media portion of Friday practice. He was in full uniform.

Allen has been dealing with a groin injury. He has just 10 catches for 92 yards in the first two games combined.


Keenan Allen dealing with groin injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was limited in practice Thursday due to a groin injury. 

Allen was not listed on the injury report Wednesday, so the issue cropped up recently. It's unclear how serious the issue is at the moment.
