| It's been a tough two years for wide receiver Keenan Allen. Allen played one half of football in 2016 and spent the rest of the year rehabbing a torn ACL. He also missed half of the 2015 season with a freak kidney injury, which was crippling to many fantasy owners as he was on pace for monster totals of over 130 catches, 1,400 yards and 8 TDs.
Reports indicate that Allen is progressing well and should be fully ready for the regular season, if not the preseason, which should be music to the ears of Philip Rivers. Allen will likely be Rivers' most trusted target out wide as the duo has built solid chemistry over the last four years. There are concerns that Allen might concede some red zone looks to rookie Mike Williams, but Allen himself is the type of receiver who can produce quality fantasy numbers on a week-to-week basis even if he doesn't get into the end zone. Touchdown potential is a major concern for all pass catchers in this offense due to the physical size of the receivers and the quality of tight ends on the roster, but Allen is easily the safest of the bunch even with his recent injury history.

FFToday's Take: Allen banged up his shoulder during practice on Thursday and missed Friday's workout. He's got a difficult matchup against the Broncos secondary making him a WR3 in Week 7. Allen posted a 5-35-1 line against Denver in Week 1.
| Allen Robinson suffers torn ACL|
Out for the year

|The Jaguars make it official: WR Allen Robinson has torn his ACL. He's out for the season. Awful. In a contract year, too. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Keenan Allen almost made it to halftime last season. This year, Robinson made it 3 plays before tearing his ACL. It's a brutal loss for the Jaguars who will be without their best receiver who will miss the remainder of the season. Allen Hurns had been pushed inside to the slot position but he could be asked to step back outside, starting opposite Marqise Lee.
