Chargers' Keenan Allen (hamstring) not expected to play Week 16

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) is not expected to play in the team's Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos.

What It Means:

Allen was able to struggle through his hamstring injury and suit up for last week's game against the Las Vegas Raiders, but he was clearly bothered by the injury; he finished that game with an uncharacteristic 1 catch for 17 yards while playing on under 50% of the team's snaps. Already out of playoff contention, the Chargers would likely be best suited letting their star receiver rest and recover in a near-meaningless game.

The Chargers' receiver depth chart gets pretty thin behind Allen and teammate Mike Williams, and with Hunter Henry on the reserve/COVID-19 list, expect the offense to run through Williams and running back Austin Ekeler in Week 16. Williams has a $5,700 salary on FanDuel this week and is projected for 8.7 fantasy points.
