|The Chargers used a third-round pick to acquire Allen in this year's draft and, by all accounts, San Diego may have a draft day steal on their hands. Injury concerns caused the California product's draft status to fall, but he was a solid producer in college who has good hands, nice size at 6'3” and 210 pounds, and has displayed solid route running. With the aging Malcom Floyd ahead of him on the depth chart and the disappointing Robert Meachem apparently out of the Chargers plans, Allen has a clear path to playing time in 2013. Did we mention the team's top wide receiver, Danario Alexander, has a history of knee problems? Allen is a solid prospect in dynasty formats and could be worth a flier in redraft formats, provided he has a solid preseason.

Knee injury in Week 11
|Mike McCoy said rookie receiver Keenan Allen, who appeared to suffer a knee injury in the second half, should be available this week. “He’s fine,” McCoy said. “He’ll be playing, which is great.” (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Allen missed a handful of plays in the fourth quarter of San Diego's loss to Miami in Week 11 due to what appeared to be a hyper-extended knee. He'll be facing the Chiefs in Week 12.

|Keenan Allen, the Chargers wide receiver, had a tough first play to the fourth quarter. He suffered a right knee injury, forcing him to be a spectator for a two-minute drill that fell short in a 20-16 loss to the Dolphins. (San Diego Union Tribune)|
FF Today's Take: Allen will have more tests done on Monday but it appears he hyperextended his knee. Seyi Ajirotutu saw increased snaps in the fourth quarter with Allen out.
