Scouting report

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs Las Vegas

Allen had yet another strong game last week, as he caught nine receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown on 12 targets. Allen was poised for a bigger game since most of his production came before halftime, however, the Chargers kept pounding the run in a game that ultimately ended in a blown lead. Even in a game that saw Mike Williams finally have a good game opposite a healthy Allen, he was able to produce high-end WR1 numbers.

Taking on the Raiders in Week 9 who rank 15th in aFPA to WRs this season, it doesn’t really matter what the matchup looks like for Allen. As the fourth-most targeted player in the league (and that’s missing most of one game), Allen will continue to eat and is an elite WR1 in PPR leagues.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Denver

Allen proved once again to be a PPR monster as he finished last week with 10 receptions for 125 yards on 13 targets. Since Justin Herbert has taken over at QB, Allen has been the entrenched WR1 and has seen double-digit targets in every healthy game he’s played with Herbert under center. Unlike prior years with Phillip Rivers, Allen isn’t just getting peppered with targets in underneath routes, rather he’s been running his full route tree seeing heavy work in the intermediate range and seeing plenty of opportunities outside of the numbers.

The Denver Broncos are ranked 14th in aFPA to WRs this season, which tees up Allen to have another big receiving game, Much like managers have all season, lock in Allen as WR1 in this with potential to finish as this week’s overall WR1 with a touchdown or two.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs Jacksonville

Prior to missing the bulk of his Week 5 game against the Saints, Allen caught two passes for 29 yards and a touchdown early in the first quarter. With Allen being cleared this week, he will once again be in the WR1 conversation as he has been the primary target for Justin Herbert all season. As a reminder for fantasy managers, prior to Allen’s injury, his target count in the previous three weeks Herbert were 10, 19, and 11. If this trend continues, Allen may very well finish as a top-4 WR in PPR leagues.

Playing against an injured Jacksonville secondary who is ranked 23rd in aFPA to WRs this season, there should be little doubt in Allen to produce elite WR1 numbers yet again.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at New Orleans

Allen continues to be Justin Herbert’s clear-cut option as he finished last week with 11 targets for eight receptions and 62 yards. Since Allen has been starting, Allen has yet to see fewer than 10 targets in a game and even in a against three top-10 aFPA defenses over the course of the past three weeks, Allen has averaged a line of 9.3-96.7-.33. He has been an absolute stud in PPR formats and there is no end in sight with his primary competition for targets in Austin Ekeler being sidelined for the next six weeks.

In what will be another difficult matchup against Marshon Lattimore and the Saint’s 8th-ranked aFPA to WRs, Allen should continue to produce as he should an abundance of targets. Considering the matchup, keep Allen fired up as a low-end WR1 in this one.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Tampa Bay

Allen easily had his best game of the season last week as he was targeted 19 times and caught 11 passes for 136 yards and one touchdown. As it was in Week 2, Keenan Allen was Justin Herbert’s primary target in Week 3 as he threw to Allen in almost every situation.

Allen’s matchup against Tampa Bay gives him another chance to have yet another big day as the Bucs have the 13th-highest aFPA so far this season, surrendering 38.6 fantasy points to the opposing team’s wide receivers. In a game that should see Los Angeles trailing, expect another target-heavy game for Allen as he should produce high-end WR2 numbers.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Carolina

Eve after Week 1’s performance, Allen still had some WR2 appeal with the targets he received, however his Week 2 game with new starting QB Justin Herbert saw him with a team-high 10 targets which he turned into seven receptions for 96 yards. The seemingly upgrade in QB is great for Allen as he and Herbert showed they instant chemistry. A Week 3 matchup against a banged-up Carolina secondary keeps Allen firmly on the WR2 radar.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Kansas City>/strong>

On paper Allen’s performance wasn’t indicative of anything more than a WR3 as he finished with four receptions for 37 yards. However, he did see eight targets and saw almost 95% of the team snaps, so it gives us reason to be optimistic for Allen. There is potential for a rebound against Kansas City’s secondary, giving Allen some upside WR3 appeal in this matchup.
