San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen was named 2013 Pro Football Writers of America offensive rookie of the year.
Huddle Up: Allen was one of the late-round or waiver-wire fantasy finds of the season as he set Chargers' rookie records for catches (71) and yards (1,043) while hauling in 8 scoring passes. He followed that up with 8 grabs for 163 yards and 2 scores in the postseason, and will be a high-end WR2 pick in drafts next summer.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 15, despite a sprained shoulder.
Huddle Up: Allen has already indicated he'll play through the pain the rest of the way, so fantasy owners should feel comfortable keeping in the lineup.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder) fully participated in practice Monday, Dec. 9. The team did not practice and this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Allen ended his 4-game TD drought with a pair of scoring grabs in the Week 13 rout of the Giants. He's a must start going forward unless you're stacked at WR.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Great sign that Allen was able to participate in the first practice of the week. And hopefully if his health issues start to fall behind him, the rookie wideout's production will start to pick back up after catching a combined 7 passes for 86 yards with no TDs on 11 targets over the past 2 games.

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said WR Keenan Allen (knee) will be fine after suffering a knee injury in the team's Week 11 game.
Huddle Up: This is good to hear. Allen didn't have a huge week but he remains Rivers' top target.

San Diego Chargers rookie WR Keenan Allen caught a game-high 9 passes for 107 yards and a TD in a 19-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Allen has supplanted Eddie Royal -- remember his hot start? -- as Philip Rivers' go-to target with 15 catches for 222 yards and a pair of scores over the past 2 games. The 3rd-round pick from Cal had only 8 grabs for 110 yards and no TDs in the Chargers' first 4 games.

San Diego Chargers rookie WR Keenan Allen is prepared to start in place of WR Malcom Floyd (neck) in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans after seeing his first NFL action in Week 2 versus the Philadelphia Eagles after Floyd went down to injury. Allen produced some key third down plays for the Chargers while at split end last Sunday and was able to beat press coverage at the line.
Huddle Up: Allen isn't worth putting in your lineup yet but he's a player to keep an eye on. With Floyd out and Philip Rivers playing better this year, Allen would put himself on the fantasy radar with a good performance against Tennessee.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen wasn't targeted once in Week 1 against the Houston Texans, and head coach Mike McCoy said Allen was fully healthy.
Huddle Up: The Bolts' top 3 wideouts -- Malcom Floyd, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal -- accounted for 15 of Philip Rivers' 27 targets Monday night, and as long as all 3 are healthy, the rookie Allen will be worked in slowly at best.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) left practice to get treatment on a posterior cruciate ligament injury that Allen suffered in 2012, according to head coach Mike McCoy. McCoy said the team wants to stay on top of the issue.
Huddle Up: Sounds like a precautionary measure more than anything, but it's certainly something to keep in the back of your mind if you plan on relying on Allen this season.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 13, to get treatment on his knee, according to head coach Mike McCoy.
Huddle Up: Another day, another knee issue cropping up with a San Diego wideout. Is there something in the water out in Mission Bay? At least, though, the Bolts have been able to dodge the serious bullets so far aside from Danario Alexander's season-ending ACL tear. Keep attune for updates on Allen.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen received some snaps with the first-team offense during practice Wednesday, Aug. 7.
Huddle Up: Allen could be a big beneficiary of Danario Alexander's absence. He is getting reps with the first team because Vincent Brown is currently sidelined with a minor injury. If he has a good preseason, Allen could push to be the No. 3 receiver in San Diego.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen is aiming to win a starting spot in camp.
Huddle Up: The third-round pick out of Cal will definitely be in the mix with Malcom Floyd the only current S.D. wideout possessing anything close to resembling a proven NFL track record. He's definitely a rookie to keep an eye on during training camp & the preseason.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen still has not fully recovered from his knee injury. The team expected Allen to run a slow 40-yard dash before the draft because of the injury. They believe his tape says he plays at a 4.55-second speed, which is fine with them.
Huddle Up: Allen, who caught 98 passes for 1,343 yards and 6 TDs as a Cal sophomore in 2011, slipped to 61-737-6 last season when he missed the final 3 games with his knee injury. With fellow San Diego WRs Vincent Brown, Danario Alexander and Eddie Royal also sporting spotty health records, the 3rd-round pick has a chance to contribute early and often provided his knee issue subsides over the summer.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen said he did not have any setbacks or discomfort with his knee while participating in the team's rookie minicamp.
Huddle Up: Health concerns also were part of the reason Allen slipped to the third round, where the Chargers gladly swooped up the tall & dependable wideout. Barring any OTA or training-camp setbacks, Allen figures to contribute immediately come Week 1.
