The defensive players on that list are ends
The offensive probables are wide receiver
His Week 15 opponent, the Broncos, have allowed five touchdowns to opposing wide receivers in the last four games, with two receivers hitting the 100-yard mark. In Week 10, Allen was held to just 41 receiving yards against the Broncos, but he did lead the team in the category. Additionally, Allen had those two touchdowns last week, but was only targeted three times, as the Changers went run-heavy and Allen injured his shoulder, which he says will be fine for Thursday night.
Allen has done enough over the course of the season to earn a start in most formats on Thursday night against the Broncos. Keep an eye on his shoulder injury, though, as there could always be a complication.
Allen caught a 43-yard touchdown pass in the opening quarter and a 4-yard strike in the second quarter. He injured his shoulder after making his 60th catch of the season, which set a franchise rookie receiving record. He was taken to the locker room for further evaluation and returned late in the second quarter before hauling in his second touchdown of the game. He finished the game with three catches for 59 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-14 victory. He was targeted three times.
Allen has had some issues with his shoulder, as he aggravated a the injury suffered during training camp on Oct. 21 against the Jaguars. He told reporters after the game that he received a painkiller after he underwent X-rays in the first half, which came back negative. He expects the shoulder injury to linger throughout the rest of the season, according to U-T San Diego.
The Chargers will play the Broncos Thursday night in Week 15.
