Keenan Allen's fantasy football managers need to prepare for another long, frustrating game in Week 16. As we saw last week, when Allen was held to 1 catch on 3 targets, Allen will be listed as a game-time decision for Week 16.

Even if he's ultimately active, his performance in a similar situation last week should make fantasy managers wary about starting him.

Allen just isn't someone you can trust in Week 16. In fact, he's quietly been mired in a bit of a slump over his last four games. Allen hasn't topped 52 receiving yards in any of his last four appearances, averaging a paltry 39.3 receiving yards per game during that stretch.

Allen's poor recent production and injury history make him an absurdly risky start in Week 16. If you have a better option on the bench, it's probably best to avoid playing Allen this week – assuming he's even active.
