|Wide receiver Keenan Allen exploded in the fantasy scene in his 2013 rookie season, catching 71 passes for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns. His unexpected chemistry with veteran quarterback Philip Rivers really began once Malcom Floyd went down with an injury in Week 3. From that point on, few receivers in the entire league were more productive than Allen. Reports say that Allen has spent the offseason working on his pure speed, which could mean more explosive plays from him this year. Yet, Allen's upside is still somewhat limited. The team's other receivers should be healthier this season, which could lead to fewer total passes coming his way. Either way, though, Allen will start the season as a high-end WR.

|The San Diego Chargers lost one of their leaders for the season placing Nick Hardwick on Reserve-Injured with a neck injury. A stalwart in the middle, the veteran center has started all 136 NFL games he’s appeared in, including 67 in a row, so he’s still getting over the “shock” of being out for the year. (Chargers.com)|
FFToday's Take: This is a crushing blow to Mike McCoy's offense. The Chargers will now need to transition to new center Rich Ohrnberger against the fierce Seattle Seahawks defense. As a result, keep expectations for Philip Rivers, Ryan Mathews and Keenan Allen tempered for Week 2.
