Keenan Allen Out for Remainder of Preseason With Ankle Injury, Highlights Fantasy Risk Score

Philip Rivers’ target-hog, Keenan Allen, has once again been bitten by the injury bug. This time, it came during practice when he suffered an ankle injury, which has in result knocked him out for the remainder of the preseason. The Chargers expect him to be good for Week 1. However, the prolonged absence from camp could mean it’s more than just a little sprain that he’s dealing with. If it’s a high ankle sprain, then there would be a higher possibility of it acting up during the season. Either way, this would be Allen’s ninth documented injury since entering the league, which is why fantasy owners will always hesitate before clicking the “draft” button.

Allen’s talent has never been the issue. He’s a top-three route runner in the league and is one of the most consistent target hogs in a very explosive offense. Over the last two seasons he’s averaged 100 receptions and 1,295 yards on an absurd 148 targets.

Still, his Risk Score can only take a hit now as he adds another injury to his record — which is always his biggest question mark. Allen remains The Wolf’s WR9, but this injury only highlights the high risk that comes with drafting the oft-injured wideout.
