The Facts: According to ESPN.com's Eric Williams, with Hunter Henry out this season due to a torn ACL, we should expect more three-WR sets with Allen inside as the slot receiver.
Diehards Line: The Chargers ran three-receiver sets on 584 offensive snaps last season, No. 20 in the NFL, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The Chargers used at least two tight ends on 374 offensive snaps last season, No. 8 in the league. With Henry out and last year's first-round selection Mike Williams expected to contribute at the start of the year, expect the number of three-receiver sets to go up in 2018, and the number of two-TE sets to decline. Given all this, it's worth noting that Allen had the third-most receiving yards and fifth-most catches among wide receivers between the numbers last season. Allen could replace some of the production lost by Henry over the middle of the field.
