Allen snagged five of his nine targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in the 26-21 victory over the Bengals on Sunday. Allen's touchdown kicked off the scoring Sunday, breaking free for a nifty red-zone reception. Concerns regarding Allen's prowess near the goal line appear to be fading by the week as the 26-year-old has caught a touchdown in each of the last five games. Easily the Chargers' No. 1 wide receiver, Allen should be poised for another solid matchup against the Chiefs, whom he torched for eight catches, 108 yards and a touchdown back in Week 1.
Allen corralled 14 of 19 targets for 148 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-30 win over the Steelers. He also scored on a two-point conversion. Allen teamed up with Philip Rivers for an amazing aerial display over the last quarter and a half of the comeback win. The 26-year-old did benefit from a lucky situation on his lone touchdown grab when a ball that should have been picked off ended up popping into his hands when a pair of Steeler defenders collided with each other in the end zone. Allen set new season highs in catches, targets and yards in one fell swoop and will look to carry that momentum into Week 14's matchup with the Bengals, who currently surrender 292.2 passing yards per game (second-worst in the NFL).
Allen caught nine of 12 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 23-22 loss to the Broncos. He also carried one time for one yard. Allen led the team in targets, catches and yards while posting his fourth-highest output of the season in that regard. He caught a four-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, giving him two scores in as many weeks after a seven-game drought. Allen has 21 catches in three games since the bye and is averaging 90 receiving yards per contest over that stretch, in addition to his two TDs. He'll look to keep it up in next Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.
Allen (hip/finger) was added to the Chargers' Week 11 injury report after logging a limited practice Thursday. So far there's nothing to suggest that Allen's availability for Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff against the Broncos is in danger, but given that he's a mid-week addition to the injury report, the wideout's situation should be monitored. We'll revisit Allen's status Friday to see if he draws an official injury designation or ends up being removed from the Chargers' final injury report of the week altogether.
Allen caught six of nine targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Raiders. Allen caught an 11-yard pass in the front corner of the end zone to give the Chargers the lead for good just before halftime. While the 26-year-old has been a bit touchdown-starved this season, he remains one of the NFL's elite route runners and the centerpiece of the Chargers' passing game. He'll hope the positive regression continues at home Week 11 against Denver.
