2013 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Aug-24-2013 by Jeb Gorham
Update (8-7): Like everyone else in San Diego's wide receiver corps, Allen moves up the depth chart following Danario Alexander's season-ending knee injury. Unlike most of the other members of San Diego's wide receiver corps, this one should interest fantasy owners. After looking like a potential first round pick following a monster junior season at Cal, Allen slid into round three because of knee concerns. Though participating in camp, the 6-foot-3 target hasn't turned many heads yet according to reports, but unlike say Robert Meachem, there is hope for more. Probably not draftable in 12-team leagues, but certainly one to watch.
Keenan Allen slides into the number four reciever slot in San Diego according to most reports. This makes him a sleeper pick for most fantasy owners. It will be interesting to see how Allen is drafted in the mocks before we get to the real deal.
Update 8/23/13 - Allen will be on fantasy owners' radar in larger leagues for sure. He is not likely draftable in 10-team formats, but might be worth a very late round pick in 12-team formats. It appears Vincent Brown and Allen are going to be the primary passing targets at this stage. Malcolm Floyd plays the long ball game and this new offense is focusing on the short passing game and other schemes to keep games on their pace.

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.|
