Allen secured eight of 11 targets for 68 yards in the Chargers' 26-24 loss to the Raiders on Thursday. He also rushed once for 18 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Allen paced the Chargers in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night, while also logging double-digit looks for the third time in the last four games. Allen's catch and yardage tallies were both his highest since a season-best 13-reception, 183-yard explosion versus the Texans in Week 3, and he'll look to build on Thursday's numbers versus the Chiefs in a Week 11 Monday night showdown on Nov. 18.

Allen (hamstring) caught three of his four targets for 40 yards in the 26-11 win over the Packers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The Chargers didn't need to rely on Allen in Sunday's contest, as the likes of Austin Ekeler, Melvin Gordon, Hunter Henry and Mike Williams were more than enough of a problem for a hopeless Packers defense, resulting in the lowest target total of the season for the former Pro Bowler. Allen should have no problem getting back into the grove next week against a Raiders' secondary that has allowed at least 140 receiving yards to wide receivers in all but one game this year.

Allen (hamstring) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

It appears as though Allen's limitations at practice Wednesday were maintenance-related, which sets the stage for the Chargers' top pass catcher to head into the weekend minus an injury designation. Allen was viewed as a game-time decision for this past Sunday's 17-16 win over the Bears, but was able to suit up and see action on 31 of the team's 45 snaps on offense, en route to hauling in seven of his 10 targets (which equals his season average) for 53 yards. Heading into Week 9, he's on pace to match his career-high mark of 102 catches.

Allen (hamstring) will be a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen managed to play through the hamstring injury in the Week 8 win over the Bears, during which he was targeted 10 times despite playing just 69 percent of the offensive snaps. The two-time Pro Bowler had never played less than 80 percent of offensive snaps across the preceding seven games, and in five of those contests, he played over 90 percent. The Chargers will monitor Allen's participation in practice as the week continues, but he can't currently be viewed as a lock to suit up and play without restrictions Sunday versus the Packers.

Allen (hamstring) caught seven of his 10 targets for 53 yards in the 17-16 win Sunday over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

While head coach Anthony Lynn suggested the team would limit Allen's workload were he able to play Sunday, that quickly proved not to be the case, as the 27-year-old saw three of the first five pass attempts of the game. Allen's numbers were fairly pedestrian considering the Bears' increasing focus on covering underneath routes, but the two-time Pro Bowler likely should have a touchdown reception early in the fourth quarter on an excellent deep pass, only for the sure-handed receiver to simply drop it, setting up what would be a 42-yard missed field goal. Allen figures to be in a better spot come next week when he faces a Packers' defense that has proven to be susceptible to the pass in recent weeks.

Allen (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Allen will give it a go Sunday, but coach Anthony Lynn previously noted that if the wide receiver played this weekend, the team would limit his snaps to a degree. With that in mind, it's no lock that Allen, who is averaging 10 targets per game to date, will see his normal volume, making him a hit-or-miss option in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Allen (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, is being viewed as a true game-time decision, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Saturday that Allen wasn't optimistic about his chances of playing in Week 8 after the hamstring injury prevented him from practicing Thursday and Friday, Rapoport's report offers a slightly more positive outlook for the wideout. According to Rapoport, Allen has been walking around well, but the Chargers won't decide on his status until putting their top target through a rigorous pre-game workout. Fortunately, fantasy managers should have other options to pivot to in the event that Allen is ruled out with the Chargers and Bears kicking off at 1 p.m. EDT.

Allen (hamstring) will test his hamstring before Sunday's game at Chicago but apparently isn't optimistic about his chances to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen received the questionable tag after being unable to practice Thursday and Friday, but the fact coach Anthony Lynn already indicated Allen would see limited snaps even if he did play made it clear his availability is a serious question mark. Geremy Davis is likely to start opposite Mike Williams if Allen is ultimately held out.

If Allen (hamstring) is able to play Sunday against the Bears, coach Anthony Lynn suggested he'd limit the receiver's snaps in the game, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

For now, Allen is viewed as a game-time decision for the contest, but fortunately the Chargers (who have a series of later starts after Sunday) kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET this weekend. With regard to Allen's status against the Bears, Lynn noted Friday, "I just need to see that he can go out and play and not hurt himself in pregame. If he can do that, then he's going to play." In the event the Chargers hold Allen out, however, Geremy Davis would likely get the start opposite Mike Williams.

Coach Anthony Lynn termed Allen (hamstring) a game-time decision Sunday at Chicago, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen appeared on Thursday's injury report as a non-participant, which was maintained on Friday's version. Officially listed as questionable to play due to a hamstring issue, he likely will be subject to a pregame workout to determine his availability. In the end, the Chargers will make a decision on Allen about 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. An absent or limited Allen would thrust Geremy Davis and Andre Patton into elevated roles behind starting wide receiver Mike Williams.
