2017 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Aug-14-2017 by Shawn Childs

Allen had a massive start in 2015 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 throughout his NFL career, Allen has averaged 5.8 catches for 69 yards and 0.43 TDs per game. This adds up to about 15.3 Fantasy points per game. In 2015, Allen was on pace for 134 catches, 1,450 yards and eight TDs on 178 targets. Last year, he suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in Week 1 crushing Fantasy owners' dreams again. While being on the field for 27 plays, Keenan caught six of seven targets for 63 yards. In 2016, the Chargers completed 184 passes for 2,642 yards and 15 TDs on 308 targets to the WR position. This gives Allen plenty of upside even with Mike Williams added to the roster and a couple of new options putting their names in the mix after progressing in 2016. He's an easy player to under or overprice. I'll set his bar at 90/1000/7 while understanding the options behind him on the roster.
