2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jun-18-2015 by Shawn Childs
Allen ended up being a bust pick in 2014 even though he had six more catches than his rookie season. Keenan didn't score his first TD until Week 8. He had less than 60 yards receiving in eight of his 13 full games. His lack of upside was due a huge drop in his yards per catch (10.2 - 14.7 in 2013). This was partly due to poor play by the offensive line, which led to the Chargers changing the way they used him in the offense. Allen finished with three 100-yard receiving games and five games with double digit targets. His season ended in Week 15 due a broken collarbone. Keenan's overall resume points to much more upside. He's without a doubt the the No. 1 option in the passing game for QB Philip Rivers with a 90-catch for 1,200-yard opportunity with a half dozen TDs. I see him as a top-15 WR in 2015.
Stevie Johnson signed a three-year deal with the Chargers this offseason. The once promising Bills' receiver once had three straight 1,000 yard season. However, he is now on his third team in three seasons and hasn't been a hot commodity in free agency the past two seasons. Now he appears to have found a home in San Diego and has built a lot of chemistry with Philip Rivers this offseason. He has a shot to be an impact player this season in a lackluster Chargers WRs corps.Fantasy Analysis:
I'm not sold on Johnson or any Chargers' wideouts for that matter. With that said, Johnson is being drafted as the WR72. That's the last WR with an ADP at all. If he's going at pick No. 216.76 then he does have some value. If I'm drafting a Chargers' wide receiver I'd go with Keenan Allen and look for a bounce back season. I also like second-year wideout Dontrelle Inman as a sleeper.
