Week 12 at Buffalo
After a lackluster performance in Week 10, Allen had his best game of the season last week against the New York Jets, setting season-highs in receptions and yards as he caught 16 balls for 145 yards and one touchdown. His 19 targets tied a season-high and Allen looked as unstoppable as ever. Allen and Justin Herbert are operating on a nearly unstoppable plane right now and Allen is locked in as an every-week WR1.
Week 12 brings a stiff matchup in the Buffalo Bills as they rank eighth in aFPA to WRs this season. Allen has proven to be productive in even the most difficult matchups, so fantasy managers should continue to start Allen with confidence as an elite WR1.
Chargers WR Keenan Allen was added to the team’s injury report Saturday with an illness and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Raiders.
Before this news, Allen was a top ten option thanks to the excellent play of both he and rookie QB Justin Herbert. If Allen can’t go, Mike Williams gets a huge boost in value and Jaylen Guyton becomes an interesting play for the week. Keep an eye on the inactives tomorrow. This game kicks off at 4:05.
