Potential Busts: WR Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers
Without Philip Rivers, Keenan Allen could be in for a disappointing season.

Fantasy owners spent a two-year period starting in 2015 speculating about the numbers Keenan Allen would post if he could remain healthy for an entire season. The answer turned out to be in the neighborhood of 100 catches and 1,260 yards, which is roughly what Allen averaged over the past three years.

Expect Allen’s 2020 production to suffer following the departure of Philip Rivers, the only quarterback from whom Allen has ever caught an NFL pass. Whether it's Tyrod Taylor or Justin Herbert under center, the Los Angeles passing game won't be what it was. The two had unbelievable timing and it's hard to imagine Taylor or Herbert having the same success as a borderline Hall of Famer.
