Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught 16 of his 33 tight-window targets in 2020, per NFL Next Gen Stats, the best clip rate among receivers with at least 20 targets.
Huddle Up: Allen has been one of the steadiest receivers in the game in recent years, logging at least 97 catches, 992 yards and six touchdowns in each of the past four seasons. Outside of big-play speed, Allen is the total package. He is a high-floor WR2 with WR1 upside in PPR formats.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen said he will be able to 'play more freely' in offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's system.
Huddle Up: Allen has been remarkably consistent, logging at least 97 catches, 992 yards and six touchdowns in each of the past four seasons. The veteran should continue to thrive as the go-to target for quarterback Justin Herbert in 2021. He is a high-floor WR2 with WR1 upside in PPR formats.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen is only one of two receivers in the NFL to post at least 100 receptions in each of the last two seasons.
Huddle Up: Allen barely missed his fourth straight 1,000-yard season in 2020 but did tie a season high with eight touchdowns. He has recorded at least 100 receptions in three of his last four season and should have a similar workload next season. He will be selected in early rounds of drafts and will be a weekly starting fantasy option.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen has registered 87 catches against single coverage since the beginning of the 2019 season - good for the second-best mark in the league over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Allen is about as good as it gets as a route-runner, and the ball seems to find sure-handed receivers like him who can consistently get open in one-on-one situations. The four-time Pro Bowler reached the 100-catch mark for the third time in four seasons in 2020 despite missing two games and appears to be back in elite territory with Justin Herbert as his quarterback. Allen should be considered a rock-solid WR1 in fantasy in drafts this spring and summer.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Allen was already unlikely to play in Week 17 with a hamstring injury that has bothered him since Week 15, so this announcement will seal the deal on him missing the season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mike Williams figures to take on a more prominent role and can be used as a WR3 in most leagues, while Tyron Johnson and Jalen Guyton could have some flex value.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Allen didn't play in Week 16 but needs just eight more yards to hit 1,000 for the season. It's tough to see him not taking the field in Week 17, but he may be left in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs just long enough for the milestone catch. He'll be a high-risk WR2 if active.
