Keenan Allen Says He Wants To Stay With Chargers

Monday, January 8, 5:31 PM

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen said he wants to stay with the team but also acknowledged all the uncertainty this offseason given the team's salary cap situation. Allen said he'd only be open to playing for a select number of other teams and has prioritized winning at this point in his career. The 31-year-old has one year remaining on his contract with the Bolts but could be cut for around $11.6 million in dead cap space. Cutting him would save LA $23.1 million in cap space for 2024 and also give him a shot to win elsewhere, because that might not be happening anytime soon with the Chargers now once again on the lookout for a new coaching staff after firing Brandon Staley midseason. However, his combination with quarterback Justin Herbert is enticing and paid off for fantasy managers that took Allen in 2023. Despite missing the last four games with a heel injury, Allen finished as a top-10 wideout in half-PPR scoring.

Amari Cooper Held In Check In Wild-Card Loss

Sunday, January 14, 7:53 AM

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper caught four of his five targets for 59 yards in a 45-14 loss to the Houston Texans in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday. Cooper was held in check just a few weeks after he shredded this very same Houston secondary for 265 receiving yards on Christmas Eve. The veteran receiver came into the game dealing with a heel injury that held him out of the previous two games and he did appear to be favoring it at times on the field on Saturday. Cooper remains under contract with the Browns for the 2024 season and will be returning as the team's No. 1 receiver after posting a career-high 1,250 receiving yards this past season.
