Keenan Allen 2020 Dynasty Outlook
Keenan Allen spent three years playing for the Golden Bears at University of California, Berkeley. He racked up 2,570 yards on a school record 205 receptions, adding 20 total TDs. His sophomore year he was selected as First-Team All-PAC-12. He decided to forgo his senior year and declared for the 2013 NFL Draft.
With the 76th pick in the 3rd round of the 2013 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers selected Keenan Allen, WR, University of California, Berkeley.
During his 7 years on the now Los Angeles Chargers, Allen has been a 3x Pro Bowler and was the 2017 Comeback Player of the Year after getting hurt in 2016. In the past 3 years, he has been WR3 (2017), WR12 (2018) and WR6 (2019) in PPR settings.
The big question this offseason is not Keenan Allen’s talent pointing down but his QB play. As the Chargers let Phillip Rivers go to the Colts, they decided to stick with 30 year old Tyrod Taylor who hasn’t started a game since Week 2 in 2018 for the Browns. Los Angeles did, however, draft Justin Herbert with their 6th pick in this years draft. What does the future hold for him in 2020 and beyond?
Keenan Allen Dynasty Outlook – Beyond 2020
Though Allen has been a WR1 over the past 3 seasons, this season may be a different story. It’s hard to see him putting up those kinds of number with their QB situation, but you could make the case he could. Michael Thomas did just that with Teddy Bridgewater, but Allen is no Thomas, and Thomas also got a million targets.
I would assume Allen would post anywhere from a low-WR1 to a high-WR3, so bet on him being a WR2 for your team. The 28 year old shows no signs of slowing down and will be a contributor to your fantasy team for 3+ years. He’ll be one of your more consistent players if the QB play is at least mediocre.
Keenan Allen has an ADP of #41 overall and #17 amongst WRs in PPR formats. In 1QB and SuperFlex leagues, his draft pick value is anywhere from 1.03 to 1.05. 1QB leagues are closer to 1.03, and SuperFlex is closer to 1.05.
Players with comparable values to Allen in 1QB leagues include Kenyan Drake, Leonard Fournette, Stefon Diggs, Allen Robinson, D.K. Metcalf, Calvin Ridley and Lamar Jackson. I’m not a believer in Diggs, so I’d personally stay away from selling Allen for him. When talking Metcalf and Ridley, I’d be on the fence if I’m looking to buy them, but it’s definitely close. The other 4 are instant accepts for me.
Similar valued players in SuperFlex leagues would also be the ones listed for 1QB except Lamar Jackson. Instead, the QBs listed are Kirk Cousins, Drew Lock, Sam Darnold, Jimmy Garoppolo, Ryan Tannehill and Daniel Jones. These are all great opportunities if you’re in need of a QB outside of Garoppolo and Tannehill. I would ask for a little more than just them for Keenan Allen.
