Week 15 of the NFL season has arrived and congratulations to those of you who made it to the fantasy football knockouts. It’s important to know injury developments and updates around the tournament, to ensure you’re setting up your optimal squad.
Check out the COVID situation for the Los Angeles Charger wide receiver Keenan Allen before the Thursday Night Soccer game against the Kansas City Captains.
Is Keenan Allen playing this week? Which Chargers Widespread Collection Will Be Possible Fantasy Plays On Thursday? Below, we take a quick look at Allen’s injury update and attempt to answer these questions.
Does Keenan Allen play week 15 against the Chiefs?
Keenan Allen missed last week’s game because he was on the league’s COVID list, but Allen was officially activated off the COVID list ahead of Thursday’s Week 15 Football game against the captains:

Because of this, we should expect that Allen will be on the field to face the Chiefs. In these teams’ first encounters, Allen was targeted 12 times, bringing in eight 50-yard passes and one touchdown. He was on the field in 83% of the tackles.
In fact, Allen has played 80% or more in every game this season. Allen’s playtime means you should deploy him in a fantasy squad as you normally would.
How does this affect other chargers Wide receiver?
Mike Williams It’s been a boom/bust season and nothing has really changed about that when Allen returns. Playing Williams means you get 120 yards and two touchdowns, or you can get two catches for 35 yards, or somewhere in between.
What has changed is the viability of other Charger options. KC defense has improved a lot since our first meeting, when Justin Herbert threw four hits the ground. So expect tertiary options like Jalen Guyton and Josh Palmer to production this week seems like a problem.
Guyton had three catches for 87 yards and one point last week, while Palmer had five with 66 and a touchdown. At least one would see a huge reduction in snapshot times, but not a workable fantasy.
Should I Start Keenan Allen and Mike Williams This Week?
Let’s keep this short: yes, you should start both of these receivers. Allen is WR13 points per game and WR14 points overall in the PPR half. He’s good to go on Thursday, so you should start him as a senior WR2. Even if inconsistent from week to week, you should start Mike Williams as a senior WR2. Keep it simple.
