Keenan Allen Fantasy Football News 2019

The Chargers announced that TE Hunter Henry suffered a tibia plateau fracture to his left knee in Sunday's win over the Colts. For what it's worth, this is the opposite knee in which he tore his ACL last spring. Henry will "continue to be evaluated" and a timetable for his return "has not yet been determined," per the team's statement. There are 3 instances of a tibia plateau fracture in Sports Injury Predictor's database. Those guys (Nate Burleson, Anthony Hitchens and Daniel Sorensen) missed anywhere from 1 to 3 months. We should learn more about Henry's status over the next few days, but fantasy owners obviously need to plan to be without him for a while. Virgil Green is currently the Chargers' backup TE. (We'll see if they try to bring Antonio Gates back.) Henry's absence will push even more targets to WR Keenan Allen and RB Austin Ekeler.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Chargers are expecting Henry to miss 4-6 weeks.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen is already back at practice after injuring his ankle last week. "He’s in great shape, explosive and looks really good," HC Ken Whisenhunt said on Wednesday. "In practice today, he looked good again. He rolled his ankle a little bit last week and he was back out there today. I’m really excited about Keenan." Allen won't play in the final 2 preseason games but is clearly on track to be ready for Week 1. He remains a safe pick in the 3rd round of fantasy drafts.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chargers WR Keenan Allen is expected to play Saturday night against Baltimore. Allen returned to a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out Tuesday with his hip injury. We'll certainly keep an eye on his status the rest of the week, right up until Saturday night's kickoff.

We'll get the team's 1st official practice report tomorrow. The Chargers still have plenty to play for, with the AFC's #1 seed still in sight.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen has been diagnosed with a hip pointer, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "No structural damage and nothing that’ll affect him long-term. He could miss some time, but it’s unlikely to be much," Rapoport adds. Allen has some extra time to heal up after going down in Thursday night's win over the Chiefs. We'll keep an eye on him when the Chargers return to practice next week. If Allen misses Week 16, WRs Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams will both be fantasy starters, despite a tough matchup against the Ravens.
