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.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) has been declared inactive for the Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton should be the main receivers for the Chargers with Allen unable to play. Williams can be a No. 3 receiver, while Guyton can be a flex option after a terrific Week 15 performance. Austin Ekeler should also see a few more targets in the passing game, but he should already be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Week 16 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Allen had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in just one of three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. His availability for this afternoon will be based upon how he feels during pregame workouts. He can be a starting fantasy option if he is declared active but owners should have alternate plans in case he is held out of action.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is expected to be a game-time decision in Week 16 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: It appears Allen's fantasy owners will be forced to roll the dice again, more than one week after he logged 24 snaps in a win over the Las Vegas Raiders. Allen was used situationally and finished with one catch in that affair, which was probably enough to get most of his fantasy owners to consider other alternatives this week if they managed to advance to their league title game. With Hunter Henry also out, Mike Williams could be in line for 10-plus targets and serve a high-upside WR3. Jalen Guyton and Tyron Williams could also see more work again as well.
