|After a monster rookie season that saw many analysts proclaiming
him as the next big thing, wide receiver Keenan Allen took a big
step back in 2015. Although he actually caught more passes in
his second season than he did in his rookie campaign, Allen finished
263 yards and four touchdowns behind his 2013 totals.
Now entering his third season as a pro, Allen still has a chance
to become a legitimate every week starting fantasy receiver, but
may never live up to the expectations of being a top 10 player
at the position. Reports indicate that there is a real chance
that Allen will spend plenty of time playing out of the slot this
season, which could mean more receptions but will likely mean
an even further decreased YPC and could even mean fewer touchdowns.
Still, for PPR formats, the move to the slot might not necessarily
a bad thing. Eddie Royal, who left in free agency this offseason,
thrived out of the slot in 2014 when he caught 62 passes for 778
yards. Although Royal may be a more prototypical slot receiver,
Allen has far more pure talent at this point in his career and
could inch back closer to the 1,000-yard mark for the season.
Look for Allen to be the team's best fantasy receiver in
2015, but that will likely only make him a WR2 in most formats.
Be careful of over-drafting him, but do look for an opportunity
to select him if he slips because he could provide some nice,
consistent fantasy numbers this season.
