After hauling in just 3 receptions for 30 yards over his first two games, Chargers rookie WR Keenan Allen has gone off for 11 catches, 195 yards, and a TD in his last two. With Philip Rivers performing more like the Rivers from 2010 than 2012, Allen could develop a prominent role within a revamped offense. Since Eddie Royal’s blazing start, he hasn’t recorded more than 3 receptions or 42 yards in his last three games, which paves the way for Allen to get more targets.
A deep sleeper in fantasy drafts this year, Allen is a legitimate threat for back-end WR3 radars, as long as Rivers continues to prove his worth. Owned in just 1% of ESPN leagues and 7% of Yahoo! leagues, Allen is one of the best buys on the wire.
