We knew Keenan Allen was one of the best WRs in the league. We knew he was one of the best route runners in the league, if not the best.

But the unknown at QB severely undervalued him to a fault, and a potential Tyrod Taylor-led offense scared a lot of us away, dropping Allen’s price all the way down to the 5th round in many drafts.

His elite performance this year taught us a huge lesson, and that’s to take the risk on elite or near-elite WRs when their price has dropped to a point where there’s nothing but room for upside as the clear WR1 on that offense.
