2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Whatever happened when the Chargers relocated to Los Angeles did wonders for Allen's health. In the four years he spent in San Diego, the veteran missed 26 games. In five years since moving to LA, he's missed only three. It's no surprise then that over that five-year run, Allen has averaged 102 catches, 1,184 yards, and 6.4 TDs per season. It's that last number that keeps the 30-year-old out of the elite fantasy receiver discussion, however, as he's never been a prolific red-zone producer.

Even though he's not the designated big-play guy, Allen is the far steadier, more reliable option. He has great hands and is one of the NFL's elite route runners -- he has 60-plus first-down receptions in each of the last five years. Granted, a career yards per catch of 11.7 isn't awe inspiring, but he caught at least six passes in 11 of his 16 games, giving him a nice little bump in point-per-reception formats.

Allen is a borderline top-10 fantasy wideout, though he lacks the upside of some of the younger names in that same range such as Tee Higgins, A.J. Brown, or Terry McLaurin. So, you must decide if you prefer the higher floor/lower ceiling of Allen to some of those more volatile options.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Mike Williams, Keenan Allen listed as Questionable
Both practiced in full on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 18, 4:18 pm

Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) are both QUESTIONABLE for Sunday night vs. Chiefs. Both receivers practiced fully today. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like both Chargers' receivers are trending towards playing Sunday night against the Chiefs. Perhaps we'll get further confirmation on Sunday morning. Allen has been out since Week 1 while Williams last saw the field in Week 7 against Seattle.


Injury Chargers could get top two WRs back in Week 11
Keenan Allen, Mike Williams to practice soon
By: Doug Orth | Tue Nov 15, 1:00 am

WR Mike Williams (ankle) and WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) will be back in practice this week, Brandon Staley said. (The Athletic - Daniel Popper)

FFToday's Take: It will come as no surprise to fantasy managers that Allen has played only two games, one of which was an early exit in Week 4 - the last time he was in action. Williams has been sidelined since Week 7 with a high-ankle sprain. The Chargers have been wise to take it easy with their receivers and should see the payoff over the remainder of the favorable receiver schedule.


Injury Keenan Allen still battling hamstring issue
Got worse during the bye week
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 2, 3:55 pm

Keenan Allen says his hamstring got worse during the bye week when training. He says next time he goes in a game it won’t be on a snap count, that it will be all or nothing, with his hamstring absolutely ready to go. He said he felt great going into Week 7, but not 100%. (Lindsey Thiry on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Allen injured his hamstring in Week 1 and still can't get over the injury. The Chargers wide receiver missed practice on Wednesday and it looks like he's going to miss Week 9. Already down Mike Williams, Joshua Palmer, DeAndre Carter, Michael Bandy and Jason Moore and next up on the depth chart.


Keenan Allen not at practice Monday
Has dealt with hamstring issue most of the season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 31, 6:40 pm

Chargers WR Keenan Allen is not practicing today. (The Athletic - Daniel Popper)

FFToday's Take: It is slightly concerning that Allen did not practice Monday since the Chargers are coming off their bye, but he did not suffer any known setback from his limited involvement in Week 7. For now, fantasy managers should expect Allen back at practice Tuesday or Wednesday but also plan to be without him as they have for the majority of the season. With Mike Williams (knee) sidelined for perhaps close to a month, Los Angeles will need to rely heavily on Allen, Gerald Everett and Austin Ekeler in the passing game.


Injury Mike Williams expected to miss four weeks
High-ankle sprain
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 26, 2:06 pm

#Chargers are expecting Mike Williams to miss a minimum of four weeks. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is a typical timeline for a high-ankle sprain which Williams suffered in Week 7. The Chargers have a bye in Week 8 which means it's possible he could be back for the Week 12 matchup against the Arizona. Keenan Allen should be back playing a full workload in Week 9 against the Falcons.


Injury Mike Williams likely to miss multiple games
High-ankle sprain
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 24, 6:40 pm

Mike Williams has a sprained ankle and will miss "weeks not days," Brandon Staley said. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Williams' fantasy managers catch a bit of a break with the timing of this injury - the Chargers go on their bye in Week 8 - but it would be overly optimistic for anyone to believe he will be ready to perform at his usual level by Week 9. High-ankle sprains tend to affect players that don't give them time to fully heal for the rest of the season. Josh Palmer likely goes right back to WR3 consideration even with Keenan Allen (hamstring) healthy, while Gerald Everett will likely remain a low-end TE1 option.


Injury Keenan Allen a gametime decision
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 23, 7:10 am

Chargers WR Keenan Allen, listed as Q due to a hamstring injury, wants to see how he feels Sunday before making a final decision, per source. But the Chargers know their bye is next week, and resting Allen now would give his hamstring two more weeks to heal and be ready after bye. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Allen is going to be held out of Week 7 but we won't know for sure until Inactives come out later this afternoon. Allen owners can use DeAndre Carter as a placeholder in their lineup and make the swap if Allen does play.


Injury Keenan Allen expected to sit again Monday night
Hamstring injury; WR eyeing Week 7 return
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 17, 6:40 pm

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is inactive tonight vs. Broncos, per source. He's hoping to return next week. (ESPN - Jeremy Fowler)

FFToday's Take: This was expected, although Allen was limited in practice all week. It is somewhat interesting the Chargers are thinking about bringing him back in Week 7 with a bye coming up the following week. At any rate, he should automatically return to fantasy lineups. In regards to Monday night's game, expect the Chargers to rely heavily on Josh Palmer, Gerald Everett and Austin Ekeler with Denver expected to shadow Mike Williams with Patrick Surtain II.


Injury Keenan Allen Out for Week 4
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 30, 4:18 pm

WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is OUT vs. Texans. Brandon Staley said plan is for Donald Parham to sit this weekend and return next week vs. Browns. Wants to make sure Parham is in proper football shape. Today was Parham’s first day back practicing fully. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This will be the third game Allen has missed after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 1. Mike Williams, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be the top three wideouts for Justin Herbert (ribs) against the Texans. Allen left practice early Thursday and didn't practice Friday which isn't a great sign for his availability in Week 5.


Injury Justin Herbert remains a gametime decision
May take pain-killing injection
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 25, 8:15 am

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is expected to make a decision during pregame warm-ups on Sunday about whether to take a pain-killing injection in his fractured rib cartilage to try and play against the Jacksonville Jaguars, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Herbert wants to play, a source told Schefter, but, there was growing skepticism about his status going into the weekend. The decision to play has bounced back and forth throughout the week, Schefter reports. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: This sounds like Herbert is truly a 50-50 call and puts fantasy owners in a bind considering the Chargers and Jaguars don't play until late-afternoon. Keenan Allen is in the same boat with his hamstring injury. He's listed as a gametime decision and can't be trusted even if he does play.


Injury Just Herbert, Keenan Allen listed as Questionable
Gametime decisions
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 23, 4:29 pm

WR Keenan Allen (hamstring), RT Trey Pipkins (ankle) and TE Donald Parham (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday along with Justin Herbert. CB J.C. Jackson (ankle) and C Corey Linsley (knee) are doubtful. Chase Daniel will start if Justin Herbert can’t go, Brandon Staley said. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The total on the Charges-Jaguars as dropped from LAC -7 earlier today to LAC -3.0 indicating Vegas doesn't think Herbert is going to play. They will put Herbert through a workout on Sunday before determining his status. Allen is also questionable to play after sustaining a hamstring injury in Week 1.


Injury Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen "day to day" per Staley
Herbert will participate in individual drills Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 21, 3:49 pm

Justin Herbert is “day to day” per Brandon Staley. Herbert threw yesterday and did some “rotational” work. He will participate in individual drills today, according to Staley. WR Keenan Allen (hamstring), TE Donald Parham (hamstring), C Corey Linsley (knee) and RT Trey Pipkins (ankle/foot) are all “day to day” per Brandon Staley. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Herbert suffered a rib in Week 2 and it remains to be seen if he will play in Week 3 against the Jaguars. Allen's hamstring injury occurred in Week 1. We'll know more about all the Chargers' wounded later in the week.


Injury Keenan Allen ruled out for Week 2
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 14, 2:50 pm

WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) and TE Donald Parham (hamstring) are OUT for Thursday night vs. Chiefs. CB J.C. Jackson (ankle) is QUESTIONABLE. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Allen injured his hamstring Week 1 and wasn't likely to play this week against the Chiefs given the short turnaround in Week 2. Mike Williams, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be the top three wideouts for Justin Herbert in a potential shootout. The Chiefs will be without rookie cornerback Trent McDuffie (hamstring).


Injury Keenan Allen dealing with hamstring pull
Chargers play on short week against KC
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 12, 5:25 pm

Keenan Allen will have an MRI on his hamstring after being ruled out yesterday, source said. Given the quick turnaround, missing Thursday vs. the #Chiefs makes sense, but tests today will determine the full extent of the injury. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: There is almost no chance that Allen will play on Thursday night. If that turns out to be the case, Josh Palmer figures to benefit the most from a fantasy perspective as he will likely start opposite Mike Williams. Managers in deeper leagues could take a flyer on DeAndre Carter, who tied Palmer for the most slot snaps in the opener. Gerald Everett could also factor into the offense a bit more as well.
