LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

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.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs New York Jets

Allen had a very uncharacteristic game last week against Miami, with just three receptions for 39 yards and one touchdown. In a game where none of the Charger WRs could get anything going, Allen saw a season-low seven targets, which is the first time this season he’s failed to see double-digit targets in a fully healthy game.

With brighter days on the horizon, Allen will take on the New York Jets in Week 11, who are currently ranked 22nd in aFPA to WRs this season. An ideal scenario for a rebound game for Allen, he should continue to see a steady amount of volume and should be trusted as a high-end WR1 this week, as he either had 100 receiving yards or one touchdown in every game this season.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Miami

Keenan Allen did in Week 9 what Keenan Allen does every week—gobble up targets. Allen saw 11 targets last week against the Raiders in which he turned into nine receptions for 103 yards and one touchdown. This marks the sixth-consecutive healthy game Allen has seen double-digit targets from Justin Herbert, as he has remained the sensational rookie’s go-to target. Very comparable to Green Bay’s Davante Adams, Allen is in an ideal situation where his talent coupled with a massive amount of targets coming from excellent QB play make him a weekly WR1 in fantasy.

Week 10 has Allen taking on the Miami Dolphins who are ranked 17th in aFPA to WRs this season. Proven to be matchup-proof at this point, Allen will continue to be a solid WR1 in all leagues with elite WR1 status in PPR leagues.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs Las Vegas

Allen had yet another strong game last week, as he caught nine receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown on 12 targets. Allen was poised for a bigger game since most of his production came before halftime, however, the Chargers kept pounding the run in a game that ultimately ended in a blown lead. Even in a game that saw Mike Williams finally have a good game opposite a healthy Allen, he was able to produce high-end WR1 numbers.

Taking on the Raiders in Week 9 who rank 15th in aFPA to WRs this season, it doesn’t really matter what the matchup looks like for Allen. As the fourth-most targeted player in the league (and that’s missing most of one game), Allen will continue to eat and is an elite WR1 in PPR leagues.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Denver

Allen proved once again to be a PPR monster as he finished last week with 10 receptions for 125 yards on 13 targets. Since Justin Herbert has taken over at QB, Allen has been the entrenched WR1 and has seen double-digit targets in every healthy game he’s played with Herbert under center. Unlike prior years with Phillip Rivers, Allen isn’t just getting peppered with targets in underneath routes, rather he’s been running his full route tree seeing heavy work in the intermediate range and seeing plenty of opportunities outside of the numbers.

The Denver Broncos are ranked 14th in aFPA to WRs this season, which tees up Allen to have another big receiving game, Much like managers have all season, lock in Allen as WR1 in this with potential to finish as this week’s overall WR1 with a touchdown or two.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs Jacksonville

Prior to missing the bulk of his Week 5 game against the Saints, Allen caught two passes for 29 yards and a touchdown early in the first quarter. With Allen being cleared this week, he will once again be in the WR1 conversation as he has been the primary target for Justin Herbert all season. As a reminder for fantasy managers, prior to Allen’s injury, his target count in the previous three weeks Herbert were 10, 19, and 11. If this trend continues, Allen may very well finish as a top-4 WR in PPR leagues.

Playing against an injured Jacksonville secondary who is ranked 23rd in aFPA to WRs this season, there should be little doubt in Allen to produce elite WR1 numbers yet again.

LAC WR Keenan Allen - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at New Orleans

Allen continues to be Justin Herbert’s clear-cut option as he finished last week with 11 targets for eight receptions and 62 yards. Since Allen has been starting, Allen has yet to see fewer than 10 targets in a game and even in a against three top-10 aFPA defenses over the course of the past three weeks, Allen has averaged a line of 9.3-96.7-.33. He has been an absolute stud in PPR formats and there is no end in sight with his primary competition for targets in Austin Ekeler being sidelined for the next six weeks.

In what will be another difficult matchup against Marshon Lattimore and the Saint’s 8th-ranked aFPA to WRs, Allen should continue to produce as he should an abundance of targets. Considering the matchup, keep Allen fired up as a low-end WR1 in this one.
