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.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs caught four of six targets for 83 yards during the team's 21-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. After an up-and-down regular season, the second-year receiver showed up in the playoffs, gaining 234 yards on 10 receptions and being a favorite target for quarterback Jordan Love. The Packers have a number of impressive rookie wide receivers that showed up this season and plenty of mouths to feed around the entire offense, including 2022 first-round draft selection Christian Watson. Doubs will always face stiff competition for targets, but it speaks volumes that when everyone was healthy during this playoff run, he was one of his quarterback's favorite targets.
