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. 


Keenan Allen able to play through groin injury


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.

Keenan Allen 50-50 for battle with Bills


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.


Time to buy low on Keenan Allen


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Keenan Allen has been bogged down by two tough matchups to open the season against the Cardinals and Seahawks, and he was held to 10 catches for 92 yards on 15 targets.

He has another tough test against Stephon Gilmore this week. But No. 1 receivers have had a good track record against him so far this season. Mike Wallace had five catches for 56 yards and a touchdown against the Bills in Week 2 while Brandon Marshall had eight catches for 71 yards and a touchdown against them in Week 1.

Allen has a great stretch coming up against Buffalo, Jacksonville, the Jets, Oakland and Kansas City, so buy low now if you still can.

Keenan Allen hauls in five balls


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen hauled in five passes Week 2 against the Seahawks.

Allen gained 55 yards. He was targeted six times. Allen spent most of the day being covered by Richard Sherman. Despite that, the team still went at Sherman in order to get the ball in Allen's hands. Allen's big plays were limited, as his longest reception was 14 yards. 

Allen will look for more Week 3 against the Bills. 


Chargers studs good to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Chargers studs are good to go Week 2 against the Seahawks.

Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates are active. They were both probable coming into the game. D.J. Fluker, Melvin Ingram, Sean Lissemore and Corey Liuget are also active for the contest.


Keenan Allen pops up on injury report


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen popped up on the injury report Wednesday.

Allen is dealing with a rib injury. He was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, implying that the injury isn't all that serious. As long as Allen continues to get through practice, he should be a sure bet to play Week 2.


Keenan Allen held in check


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Chargers receiver Keenan Allen wasn't a big contributor Monday night at Arizona, making five catches for 37 yards. Allen dropped a fourth-down pass with just under two minutes left that killed San Diego's last drive in the 18-17 loss. The ball was deflected but catchable.

Cardinals corner Patrick Peterson smothered Allen for the most part. Allen drew nine targets, second on the team, but rarely broke free. Now he has to face the Seahawks in Week 2.


Keenan Allen ready to duel Patrick Peterson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Chargers wideout Keenan Allen, who was probable with a rib injury, is active as expected for Monday night's game at Arizona. He'll see a lot of Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who usually shadows the opponent's top receiving threat.

Chargers premier offensive pair on injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Two Chargers offensive standouts are on their injury report heading into the Monday night battle against Arizona.

Wide receiver Keenan Allen appears all but set to play despite a rib ailment. He participated fully in practice all week. Tight end Antonio Gates (hamstring) is questionable after having been out throughout the week.


Patrick Peterson not a reason to bench Keenan Allen


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Coming off his breakout rookie year, Chargers wideout Keenan Allen opens the season Monday night in Arizona where he'll see plenty of the league's highest-paid cornerback. Patrick Peterson likely will shadow Allen all over the field.

But Peterson isn't unbeatable. Last year he allowed 688 receiving yards, seven touchdowns, a 54.4 percent completion rate and a 91.3 passer rating on throws to his coverage area. Compare that to Seattle's Richard Sherman (348 yards, 1 TD, 50.9 percent completions, 36.2 rating).

It should be noted Peterson played 100 more snaps and regularly shadowed the opponent's top wideout, while Sherman usually stayed on the left side of the field. Still, Peterson has a gambling tendency San Diego can exploit.

Allen caught 71 passes for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns last year despite being used sparingly the first three weeks. He's a precise route runner and Philip Rivers' favorite red-zone target. From Week 5 through Week 16, Allen went over 100 yards or caught a touchdown in eight of 12 games.

Despite the tough matchup, start Allen as a low-end WR2.

'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.
