Description: Keenan Allen came on strong in the second half Sunday against the Broncos. He finished with six catches for 142 yards and two touchdowns after half time.
Insight: That came after being held without a catch for the game's first two quarters. Both of Allen's touchdown receptions came in the fourth quarter. The Chargers scored all 17 of their points during that same period. Allen, a third-round pick out of Cal-Berkeley in 2013, is on the cusp of fantasy superstardom. Make sure to lock him up if you own him in a keeper or dynasty league.

Description: Chargers receiver Keenan Allen is officially active for Thursday's game in Denver.
Insight: He injured his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Giants but was never in danger of missing Week 15, even with only a few days to prepare. A loss on Thursday would probably end whatever slim hopes the Chargers had of making the postseason.

Description: San Diego wideout Keenan Allen participated in the Chargers' Monday walkthrough.
Insight: Allen injured his shoulder in Sunday's game, but appears to be on schedule to play in Thursday's game against Denver. He's the Chargers' best wideout.

Description: San Diego wideout Keenan Allen hit the 100-yard receiving bonus for the second straight game Sunday against the Bengals.
Insight: Allen had 106 yards on eight catches one week after grabbing nine balls for 124 yards. Philip Rivers' top target has 58 receptions, 843 yards and three touchdowns this season. Allen was the eighth receiver taken in the 2013 NFL Draft, but he leads all rookies in receiving yardage by a wide margin.

Description: San Diego wideout Keenan Allen exploded for 124 yards on nine catches Sunday in a win over Kansas City.
Insight: It would have been even sweeter if he had managed to find the end zone. Still, Allen is having one heck of a rookie season. He's currently on pace for 1,072 yards, which would be the most by a rookie wideout since Anquan Boldin in 2003 (1,377 yards in 16 games).

Description: Chargers receiver Keenan Allen suffered a knee injury in Week 11 but it won't keep him from playing Sunday against Kansas City.
Insight: Allen has cooled off a bit after logging three 100-yard outings in a four-game stretch last month but he's still the most dangerous weapon San Diego has in the passing game outside of tight end Antonio Gates. Even against a solid Chiefs secondary, Allen is worthy of flex/WR2 consideration.

Insight: Allen tweaked his knee late in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. It looks like he has a good chance of suiting up this week against Kansas City.

Description: Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Monday that receiver Keenan Allen (knee) will play Sunday against the Chiefs, according to ESPN.com.
Insight: "He's fine," McCoy said. "He'll be playing, which is great." Allen was spotted on the sideline with his knee iced and wrapped late in Sunday's game against Miami while San Diego attempted to stage a comeback. Allen has had under 50 yards in each of the last two games but remains one of Philip Rivers' favorite targets. He's a WR3 in Week 12.

Description: Chargers rookie wide receiver Keenan Allen should begin camp as the team's No. 3 receiver and could win a job opposite Danario Alexander if he's completely recovered from his 2012 knee injury.
Insight: With a solid quarterback in Philip Rivers, winning a starting role would immediately make Allen a viable fantasy starter.
