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 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Ravens
There is a lot to like about Keenan Allen's numbers so far in 2021. He has commanded 51 targets, the third-most among all wide receivers. Only four players have more receptions than Allen, who has 34 catches on the year. But 16 have more yards than his 369, and 41 have scored more touchdowns. Allen has a solitary score on the year. Allen has at least eight targets in every game, but Week 5 was his third consecutive game with less than 100 receiving yards. He is currently the WR23 in half-PPR formats.
The Ravens have been fairly stingy towards fantasy wide receivers in 2021, ranking 10th in aFPA. They've allowed the ninth-fewest receptions to the position (58), while only ten teams have given up fewer receiving yards (803). However, Allen could find some joy from the slot against the Ravens. Their primary slot corner Tavon Young has allowed 13 receptions for 166 yards this season, the fourth-most yards allowed by any slot corner. Allen is projected for a low-end WR1 week. Mike Williams is also banged up and might not be able to play in Week 6. If he misses out, Allen could see a massive bump in targets.
