Allen caught six passes on 10 targets for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.
Allen still hasn't scored a touchdown, and other than an outstanding 10-reception, 135-yard game in Week 4 against Jacksonville, he has underachieved this season. He was targeted throughout, but didn't make much of an impact until he caught three passes for 32 yards on San Diego's penultimate drive of the game. He was also targeted in the end zone on a short pass in the second half, but the Chiefs' defender did a good job of getting his head around, knocking the ball away. Considering that Philip Rivers is playing better than ever, with 17 touchdown passes through seven games, and Allen leads the team in targets (54), it's a very disappointing outcome for the second-year wideout. He's got a challenging matchup in Week 8 at Denver, although the game has the potential to be a high-scoring affair.

Allen (quad) caught just three passes on six targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 31-28 win at Oakland.
Allen was held without a catch in the first half, but got a little more involved once Eddie Royal left the game with a rib injury. The second-year wideout probably has the most talent of any of San Diego's pass catchers, but the combination of nagging injuries and Phillip Rivers' ability to spread things around has hampered Allen's stats. He did have a key 30-yard punt return late in the fourth quarter, that set up the game-winning touchdown, but that's of little consolation to fantasy owners. He's surprisingly still searching for his first score of the season, and he'll look to break the drought in Week 7 against Kansas City.

Allen (quad) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Allen is out there if you need him Sunday and should see his share of looks against Oakland, after having been targeted 19 times over his last two games.

Allen (quad) remained limited at Thursday's practice, the Chargers' official site reports.
While there has been nothing so far to suggest that Allen's status for Sunday's game against the Raiders is in peril, a probable injury designation in advance of Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff would no doubt be of reassurance to the wideout's fantasy owners.

Allen had three receptions on seven targets for 25 yards in Sunday's blowout win over the Jets.
Allen got banged up in the first quarter, with an undisclosed injury, but returned after missing just a few plays. Although he was not productive Sunday, he didn't seem to be hindered by the minor injury he suffered. In fact, he had a chance for a touchdown in the second quarter, but could not come down with a jump ball from Phillip Rivers. His seven targets led all San Diego pass catchers, and he should have a good shot at bouncing back next week, facing a struggling Raiders' defense.

Allen caught a career-high 10 passes for 135 yards in Sunday's blowout win against Jacksonville.
Allen could have had an even bigger game, as a beautiful leaping catch on the sideline for around 30 yards was reversed via replay. After struggling for the first three games of the season, Allen was featured and targeted heavily by Philip Rivers on Sunday, receiving a team-high 12 looks. He's still searching for his first touchdown of the year, but it's possible that it could come next week against a beatable Jets secondary.

Allen (groin) practiced fully again Thursday, the Chargers' official site reports.
Allen ended up listed as questionable in advance of Week 3's contest against the Bills, but his Week 4 status is in little doubt at this point. After back-to-back five-catch efforts to start the season, Allen was held to two catches for 17 yards this past Sunday, but he's a bounce-back candidate this weekend against a very beatable Jags' defense.
