Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 7: Keenan Allen

Donald Miralle

The Chargers wide receiver has rocked the fantasy community over the last three weeks and could be in for a field day against the Jaguars. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has quickly become a must start candidate for fantasy owners and will surely continue to play at a high level against a lackluster Jacksonville Jaguars team. Just in the last two weeks alone, Allen has put together 15 catches for 222 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: The Jacksonville Jaguars have improved in their passing game with the return of the receiver Justin Blackmon and the more consistent play of quarterback Chad Henne. The fact that both teams involved in this game can pass the ball means that Allen will be in for a ton of targets in Week 7.

With the way he is playing right now and managing to get open, it shouldn't surprise anybody if Allen sees the ball more than 10 times in the game as quarterback Philip Rivers has grown to really like him.

Of course Allen will have to leave some targets to tight end Antonio Gates, who seems to finally be well past the plantar fasciitis issues that plagued him last year. Almost any combination of receivers and quarterbacks are a must start against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but it goes without saying that Allen can't possibly be on your bench this week given the way he's played.
