There is no word yet on if Allen was a close contact, or contracted the virus himself, but either way, his season is officially over. Allen finishes the season as the WR13 in total fantasy points, and the WR14 in fantasy points per game. Mike Williams, Tyron Johnson, and Jalen Guyton should all see an increase in snaps with Allen sidelined. Williams is currently our 36th ranked receiver for Week 17, Johnson is our 39th.
LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs Denver
Man, if you managed to start and survive the Keenan Allen debacle last week, more power to you. After much back and forth on his availability last week, Allen was expected to be on a pitch count for last Thursday night’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders, however that resulted in a one-catch for 17-yard performance. To make matters worse, Allen has yet to practice week and will be a true game-time decision heading into Sunday. It is an unfortunate way to end Allen’s best fantasy season, however given how last week transpired, fantasy managers should already have a contingency regardless of his status in Week 16.
If indeed you survived last week, then the adage of “Play your studs” goes out the window given we have already seen Allen’s incredibly low floor went not 100% healthy. Allen is the ultimate boom-or-bust WR2 in the championship game this week.
