2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


I'm pretty confident that I would have won $300,000 to split with my partner in 2015 if Allen stayed on the field for 16 games (my WR3 scored only about 20 Fantasy points in the championship round while needing only 21 more points to take home the title - lost Edelman as well on that team). Keenan had a massive start last year when he caught 67 passes for 725 yards and four TDs on 89 targets over eight games. He had an elite catch rate (75.3) with a huge bump in his targets per game (11.1). Allen had three games with 12 catches or more, which is just insane for a WR plus five games with double-digit targets. His best game came in Week 3 against the Vikings (12/133/2) while posting two other impact games (15/166 and 14/157). His only failed game came in Week 2 against the Bengals (two catches for 16 yards on four targets). His season ended due to a lacerated kidney, which is somewhat of a fluke injury. In his 37 games played in his NFL career, Keenan averaged 5.8 catches for 69 yards and 0.43 TDs per game. This adds up to about 15.3 Fantasy points per game. Last year Allen was on pace for 134 catches for 1450 yards and eight TDs on 178 targets. His resume suggests back-end WR1 in PPR leagues while his progression in 2015 points to a top five opportunity in the game. With some regression expected in the Chargers' passing game, I'd set his bar at 100+ catches for 1100+ yards with an outside chance at double digit TDs. His only strike for me is his low value in yards per catch (10.8 in 2015 and 11.9 in his career).

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
2.03 Evan Silva - Was on pace for over 130 catches before his Week 8 injury.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
2.02 Scout Fantasy - Jack Delaney - Keenan Allen was ready to put up some monster numbers last season, as he recorded 725 receiving yards and caught four touchdown passes in just eight games. He could have been a first-round pick this year if he made it through the entire 2015 season, so I was glad to land him at a discount in Round 2.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
2.06 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - Allen was on pace for 134 catches, 1,450 yards, and eight touchdowns before suffering a lacerated kidney in Week 8 of last season. He was also averaging 11.1 targets per game. If he continues to get this type of volume and plays a full season, we could see his best NFL season yet.
