    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Returns healthy

    Keenan Allen participated in the Los Angeles Chargers' offseason program, Ricky Henne of the team's official website reports.Allen didn't appear to have any offseason limitations after suffering a knee bruise at the Pro Bowl in January. He's locked in as the top receiving weapon in an efficient offense, but even with Tyrell Williams leaving for Oakland, the Chargers have a deep group of skill-position players that demand touches. Mike Williams and tight end Hunter Henry both are popular breakout candidates for good reason, while Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler form one of the better backfield duos in the NFL. Allen will always be a priority, but the current situation hints at a repeat of his 2018 volume (136 targets) rather than a return to the 2017 level (159). He still finished 12th among wide receivers in targets last season, and the addition of some rushing stats -- nine carries for 75 yards -- was a useful new trick.

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Shines with less volume

    Keenan Allen (knee) finished the 2018 regular season with 97 catches for 1,196 yards and six touchdowns on 136 targets in 16 games, adding six catches for 112 yards and another score in two playoff appearances.Allen maintained his impressive efficiency and played all 16 games for a second straight season, but his targets dropped off from 9.9 per game in 2017 to 8.5 in 2018. The decrease was largely a symptom of team success, with Philip Rivers losing 67 pass attempts from the previous season as the Los Angeles Chargers' defense and running game improved. With the nucleus of the team under contract for at least one more year, the Chargers hope to repeat their balanced approach in 2019. Allen was removed from the Pro Bowl with an injury, but early reports suggest it's nothing more than a bruised knee. He'll turn 27 in April and has two seasons remaining on a four-year, $45 million contract that could soon become a point of contention.

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Leaves Pro Bowl

    Keenan Allen exited the Pro Bowl on Sunday after sustaining a knee bruise, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.Allen had a busy afternoon prior to his exit, catching four of six targets for 95 yards, including a 50-yard reception in the first quarter. The injury doesn't appear too concerning, but it would nonetheless be surprising to see the 26-year-old return to the field Sunday.

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Long TD not enough to save season

    Keenan Allen caught two of six targets for 75 yards and a touchdown while also catching a two-point conversion in Sunday's 41-28 divisional-round loss to New England.Allen capped Los Angeles' opening drive with a 43-yard touchdown, but his impact was minimized thereafter. Like quarterback Philip Rivers, Allen has an out in his contract this offseason. That being said, there's little reason for the Los Angeles Chargers not to keep the duo on board, considering Rivers and Allen linked up for 1,196 yards and six touchdowns on 97 occasions during the regular season. Those numbers represented a modest drop-off from the 102 catches for 1,393 yards and six touchdowns Allen posted in 2017.

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Relatively quiet in wild-card win

    Keenan Allen brought in four of six targets for 37 yards in the Los Angeles Chargers' 23-17 wild-card win over the Ravens on Sunday.Allen was largely kept in check by the stingy Ravens defense throughout the afternoon, and he essentially did his damage relatively close to the line of scrimmage. As his regular-season numbers (97-1,196-6) corroborate, the veteran pass catcher remains Philip Rivers' most trusted target. Consequently, he's likely to see a larger workload during what shapes up as a slightly less intimidating matchup in next Sunday's divisional-round clash with the Patriots.

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Makes four catches in win

    Keenan Allen caught four of seven targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 23-9 win over the Broncos.Allen split targets, catches and yards evenly with Mike WIlliams, but it was Williams who came down with the lone touchdown reception in the game. Allen has had an uneven season in that respect, with just one score through the first nine weeks followed by touchdowns in five straight, only to finish the regular season without finding the end zone again. The 26-year-old will now face the Ravens, who held him to five catches for 58 yards in Week 16, on the road in the first round of the playoffs.

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Ho-hum performance in loss

    Keenan Allen snagged five of his eight targets for 58 yards in the 22-10 loss Saturday to the Ravens.Allen snared his usual high target share, but excellent tackling by the Ravens made any yards-after-catch opportunities disappear, thus limiting the 26-year-old's effectiveness. Fantasy owners will want to pay attention to the news coming out of Los Angeles throughout the week, as there's a possibility the Los Angeles Chargers could rest many of their star players in the event the Chiefs win Sunday night against the Seahawks, and again next week Sunday against the Raiders, both of which are currently scheduled to occur before the Chargers' Week 17 contest (4:25 p.m EST against the Broncos).

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Will play Saturday

    Keenan Allen (hip) is active for Saturday's contest against the Ravens.All indications throughout the week suggested Allen would be good to go for the pivotal contest against the Ravens, and that proved correct following the release of the Los Angeles Chargers' inactive list. Baltimore has allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to the wide receiver position this season, but Allen has proven to be essentially matchup proof in 2018 and should be set to receive his usual 10-12 targets once more.

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Looking good for Saturday

    Keenan Allen (hip), who is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Ravens, is on track to play in the contest, Steve Wyche of NFL Network reports.Echoing the notion put forth Thursday by Adam Schefter of ESPN, Wyche relays that he has "been given every indication that (Allen) will be playing." The Los Angeles Chargers' top receiver is thus trending toward an active status, but those considering Allen in weekly lineups are still advised to verify his availability when the team releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to the 8:20 p.m. EST kickoff.

    Chargers' Keenan Allen: Listed as questionable

    Keenan Allen (hip) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game against the Ravens.That said, Adam Schefter of ESPN indicates that Allen -- who suffered a hip pointer in Week 15 -- is expected to play this weekend, a notion that will be confirmed, either way, upon the release of the Los Angeles Chargers' inactives in advance of Saturday's 8:20 ET kickoff. Assuming he suits up and avoids any in-game setbacks, Allen should return to his usual high-volume role in the Chargers offense.
