San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) did not practice on Wednesday, according to a report by Chargers' beat writer Michael Ghelken. Allen caught three passes for 45 yards against the Miami Dolphins last week before exiting the game in the fourth quarter.
Fantasy Impact: As a young rookie receiver, Allen has to be looked at as one of this season's biggest fantasy surprises. Injuries to the team's receiving corps., including a season-ending neck injury to number one receiver Malcolm Floyd gave Allen a chance to shine.
Allen went for over 100 yards receiving and scored a touchdown in all but one game during the month of October. That stretch made him one of the hottest waiver wire picks of the year.
He has cooled off a bit in the last two weeks, managing just 86 total yards. The Chargers lost both those games and it's not all Allen's fault. Quarterback Philip Rivers can be inconsistent at times.
Coach Mike McCoy has already stated Allen will play in Week 12.
