2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-14-2014 by Jeb Gorham

Keenan Allen enters his second season with much hype and lofty expectations. His 71 receptions for 1,046 yards and eight TDs is close to one of the best rookie receiver seasons ever. Philip Rivers will be sending many passes Allen's direction, but now that defenses know of him, how will they adjust in order to shut him down? This season he will be targeted by more defenses and may not find as much room to work. Nonetheless, Allen is a fantasy stud-in-the-making and should have enough production to keep him worthy of your WR1 slot. With Malcom Floyd healthy, Allen will have some help to draw defenders away. Allen has the speed, size and natural ability to produce in his sophomore year.

Editor's note: It seems that many consider an even better season for Allen a foregone conclusion. That may very well be true, but it doesn't always happen that way though. Look at the career arc of New England's Terry Glenn after his amazing rookie season in 1996. Guys fall off a cliff statistically. That's just part of the game. Like with any other pick, make sure you're getting a good value for Allen. The former Cal receiver, according to our ADP data, is the 10th WR drafted with an ADP of 25.05. This puts him ahead of Jordy Nelson, Pierre Garcon and a flurry of other veteran receivers. This isn't a very great deal for fantasy owners and provides little opportunity for him to outplay his ADP.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
14.07 Fantasytaz - Jim Day - Allen is a pure upside pick here. Love his talent and Rivers continues to look for another receiver he can count on. I think Allen might be that guy even in his rookie season. I like his upside as my WR5.Hopefully he will stop wearing Raiders hats...
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
13.03 Gridiron Experts - Not a lot left out there, so I chose to go with a high upside rookie who should be the second best wide receiver for a team, in San Diego, that's likely to be passing a lot this season.

13.11 World Fantasy Rankings #4 - Not Happy here. I was banking on Joique Bell being available and think he is massively undervalued. He is better than LeShoure and will prove it beyond a doubt this season. His yards after contact and his receiving ability make him a no brainer. Instead, I got a talented rookie with the drive and ability to succeed in San Diego. They need WR help so my fingers are crossed.
