  • Allen brought in six passes (on eight targets) for 111 yards in Sunday's win over the Redskins. Allen has been absolutely clicking with quarterback Philip Rivers lately, hauling in 39 passes for 547 yards and four touchdowns over his last four games. He has also been a model of consistency, recording no fewer than six catches or 105 yards over that window. Allen is clearly Rivers' top target, and with the veteran quarterback currently operating on an elite level, the fifth-year receiver is a great option in all formats going forward with three bottom-half pass defenses left on the schedule in the Chiefs, Jets and Raiders.

  • Allen caught 10 of his 14 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Browns. That makes three straight 100-yard performances by Allen after eclipsing the mark just twice in the previous nine games. The 25-year-old has been the apple of quarterback Philip Rivers' eye as of late, leading the team in targets (41) over the the last three weeks by a whopping margin (Hunter Henry is second over that span with 19). Now fully healthy after missing last year with torn ACL, Allen has re-emerged as one of the premiere receivers in the NFL, crossing the 1,000-yard receiving threshold for the first time since his rookie season.

  • Allen caught 11 of his 14 targets for a career-high 172 receiving yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 28-6 win over the Cowboys. Allen was absolutely electric Thursday, knifing in and around an over-matched Cowboys secondary. Finally healthy after multiple season-ending injuries the last three seasons, Allen's work after the catch has simply been remarkable, as he's using subtle cuts to dance in and around oncoming defenders. The end result has been a whopping 23 catches, 331 receiving yards and three touchdowns over the last two weeks, with the majority of the yardage coming after the catch. It's unlikely Allen will top his yardage totals for a third straight week, but he should nevertheless be primed for another solid matchup against the Browns next Sunday.

  • Allen caught 12 passes on 13 targets for 159 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 54-24 victory over the Bills. Allen set season highs in nearly every significant receiving category Sunday in what was a dominant performance by the entire Chargers squad. After not making much noise in his previous five games, it was a timely reminder of the talent the 25-year-old possesses. This didn't appear to be a favorable matchup for Allen either, considering the Bills entered the day having allowed only seven passing touchdowns (second in the league) and a 77.8 passer rating (sixth). Up next for the Cal product is a Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Cowboys, who've allowed 16 passing touchdowns (T-20th) and a 96.4 passer rating (23rd) this season.

  • Chargers' Keenan Allen: Catches four passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Allen caught four of his seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Jaguars. He also carried the ball once for six yards. Allen has now seen seven or fewer targets in each of the last three games, in large part because the Chargers have opted to throw to their running backs significantly more out of the backfield. Given Allen has seen just two red-zone targets in the last three weeks, he's simply a consistent, albeit underwhelming, PPR option most weeks.
