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 play.
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 (2nd-worst in the NFL).
Allen caught all seven of his targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in the 45-10 win Sunday over the Cardinals.
Allen had a number of astounding catches in this contest, including a 20-yard tip-toeing reception which set up a touchdown to end the second quarter, and then a similarly difficult catch near the back end zone to begin the second half which put the contest out of reach. Allen has only topped 100 receiving yards twice this season, but three straight weeks with a touchdown has turned the tables on what could have been a disappointing fantasy season for the Chargers' top receiver.
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) does not carry an injury status for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
Allen was added to the Chargers' Week 11 injury report Thursday after logging a limited session, but he was on the field Friday and heads into the weekend minus questions about his availability. Through nine games, Allen has hauled in 53 of his 75 targets, en route to scoring two TDS and averaging 76.3 receiving yards per game. Despite the modest touchdown total, Allen's steady volume in his team's offense is enough to give him a solid weekly fantasy floor.
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.
