The Chargers seem unlikely to do anything radical from a personnel standpoint in the aftermath of Keenan Allen’s injury.
Generally speaking, there is little to do.
Maneuvering a trade is easier said than done. This is not like baseball, a sport in which a left-handed bat simply can be plugged into the clean-up spot. Any wide receiver who joins the club would need to learn the playbook on the fly and build a rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers. That is partly why such midseason deals are fairly uncommon in the NFL.

Week 1 at Kansas City
Keenan Allen was on pace for over 1,400 yards before an injury ended his season in Week 8. Allen had 67 catches for 725 and 4 TDs over the first eight games along with 89 targets. He three games where he had over 10 catches (15, 12, 14) in that same span.
Allen actually gets a friendly matchup, on paper at least, in Week 1 against the Chiefs. KC was 32nd in allowing fantasy points to WRs in 2015. Ironically, Allen missed both games against the Chiefs last year. He last suited up against KC in Week 7 of 2014 where he had a line of 6-58-0 (10). Allen comes in ranked 10th on our list this week and is a must play on the road. It's expected the SD run game will struggle in this contest so Allen could benefit.
