Temperature Check on Keenan Allen


#1

Does he still finish in the top 12 this season?


#2

Yes, easily IMO. Need look no further than last year. For some reason, dude starts off slow it seems and then absolutely explodes later on in the year. He is a target hog and needs a bunch of targets to be a beast. Rivers loves the dude, they are going to get him involved. I think he was hurt last week too which could explain why he wasn’t given as much work.

I just went and bought low on Keenan Allen and am more than willing to continue buying. I’ve seen the guy play. He’s a baller and know what he can do. Very few receivers I would take over Allen ROS. It’s basically just MT, OBJ, Nuk, AB that I would 100% take above him. Others I think that are close to him are Cooks, Hill, JJS, AJ Green.

Always appreciate your feedback!
I was offered a trade to get Keenan Allen and Yeldon for Antonio Brown. I’m in a 14 team .5ppr league.
Currently have Fournette, J. Howard, C. Thompson, & P. Lindsay at RB;
AB, Larry Fitz, Kenny G, Callaway, and Goodwin.

Is keeping AB the right decision?


#4

What’s your record?


#5

Keep Antonio unless you think you cantgo will potentially losing some games until Fournette is back


#6

2-2. Thinking about it more, letting go AB would be a huge mistake. Appreciate the take.


#7

Keep AB. I am also buying AB anywhere and everywhere. I myself tried to make an offer of Keenan Allen+ for AB yesterday and got turned down.

Yes, and I wouldn’t be worried about him. He gives you a solid baseline & him monster games should likely win you the week. Last season he put up about 40% of his season’s production in just 4 games. He only had 3 games under double digits in ppr.

Just for reference I went back to 2015 when he played 8 games (missed almost all of 2016) and he had about 60% of his entire production in 3 of the 8 games (with just 1 game under double digits in ppr).

Now what about AB for Keenan Allen and Sony Michel?

I’m still leaning AB. What do you think?


#10

That is a lot closer, depends on your RB needs and your temp check on Michel. I’ve been a michel advocate and truther since the NFL draft and think he is a low end RB1 ROS. Mainly due to his 100% marketshare of goal line rushes and as the patriots leading rusher. So in that trade, you’re giving up a top 3 WR, for a top 6-8 WR and a top 12 RB. If you need the RB, it’s not a bad trade at all, if you don’t then I wouldn’t hate it if you stuck with AB.

I recently was in trade talks that was essentially Michel + JJS for AB. I personally value Keenan ALlen over JJS ROS but i like both. But that hopefully gives you a sense for things.

trading away AB physically pains me. I may just take the L this week with Fournette and Howard out.

Greatly appreciate it and good luck ROS
