Mike McCoy: Keenan Allen will play Week 12
Tuesday, November 19, 2013, 10:16am

ESPN - [Full Article]

A day after his team’s disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins, San Diego coach Mike McCoy provided some updates on players who suffered injuries against Miami.

McCoy said rookie receiver Keenan Allen, who appeared to suffer a knee injury in the second half, should be available this week. Allen played in 49 of the possible 65 plays on offense for the Chargers.

“He’s fine,” McCoy said. “He’ll be playing, which is great.”

Fantasy Impact:

We were getting indications Monday that Allen was going to be ok, but now it looks like he's an official go for Week 12. The Bolts continue a stretch of tough passing matchups the next three weeks with Kansas City, Cincy and the NY Giants. However Allen should still be a WR2 option when our rankings come out later this week.

Chargers.com - [Full Article]

Chargers TE Ladarius Green has made one thing known in his sophomore year in the NFL; when the ball gets in his hands, good things happen.

At 6-6, 240-pounds, he’s quickly making his presence felt with big play after big play. After appearing in only four games as a rookie, Green is blossoming before the Bolts very eyes. In 10 games this year, he has caught 11 balls for 229 yards, averaging a gaudy 20.8 yards per catch. His best game came Sunday against the Dolphins with an impressive four reception, 81-yard effort. Both were career highs for the Louisiana-Lafayette product.

Over the course of the season, Philip Rivers has learned that when he gives number 89 a chance to make a play, he’ll usually be rewarded.

“It was just some of the way those plays came up,” Rivers said. “We know what he’s capable of and he’s going to continue to have a role for us in the passing game and in the running game. He was big for us with a couple of big catches.”

Fantasy Impact:

Green could end up seeing some more targets with Keenan Allen a bit banged up after this week, although expected to be ok. Still, Green is a threat even with Antonio Gates because Vincent Brown has mostly been used as a blocker at WR and Eddie Royal is an up-and-down WR3.

Shane Vereen IN, Brandon Bolden OUT for MNF
Monday, November 18, 2013, 7:21pm

Patriots Inactives
Steve Beauharnais LB
Alfonzo Dennard CB
Steve Gregory S
Chris Barker OL
Jake Bequette DL
Brandon Bolden RB
Leon Washington RB

Fantasy Impact:

Shane Vereen is active and expected to be "eased in" per Adam Schefter, though that could mean many different things as we've seen in recent weeks with Andre Brown and Percy Harvin. Both Bolden and Washington are inactive, so Vereen should be the primary passing down RB. Combined, Vereen and Danny Woodhead saw an average of 11.6 touches in 2012, so expect 10-13 touches in a bad matchup with the Panthers. Shutdown CB Aqib Talib is also active.

Beat: Keenan Allen had knee hypertension
Monday, November 18, 2013, 9:43am

Union-Tribune San Diego - [Full Article]

Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen had a tough first play to the fourth quarter. He suffered a right knee injury, forcing him to be a spectator for a two-minute drill that fell short in a 20-16 loss to the Dolphins.

“Just hope for the best,” Allen said of his sideline thoughts for the final sequence. “Can't do anything about it.”

The early sense is Allen suffered a hypertension. In 2012, he missed the end of his junior season at California with a knee injury, that one to his left.

Fantasy Impact:

Later Monday afternoon, HC Mike McCoy said Allen is going to be fine. He showed no apparent limp when walking after the game. Looks like Allen and owners, dodged a bullet here.

Right knee of Chargers WR Keenan Allen wrapped, iced on Chargers sideline.

Fantasy Impact:

Allen never returned to the game. If he were to miss time, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal would likely have to play bigger roles.
