Keenan Allen erupts for 124 yards for fantasy owners

Jamie Squire

The rookie wide receiver continues to drop jaws this season, adding his fourth 100-yard game of the season to his résumé. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen turned in a big first half versus the Kansas City Chiefs, but little else afterward during his team's thrilling win.

Allen posted a gaudy line of nine catches for 124 yards, but just one catch for 20 yards came after the halftime gun. The rookie wideout was featured heavily during the two-minute drill to close out the half and was an integral part in moving the chains throughout the game. However, he never finished in the end zone in a game where his offense put 41 points on the board. Most importantly, Allen demonstrated that a knee injury which sidelined him late in Week 11 is a thing of the past.

Fantasy Spin: Against a typically stout Chiefs defense, Allen chipped in nine catches that tied his career high set in Week 9 versus the Washington Redskins. His 12 targets were tops on the team for good reason, and it was enough for Allen to eclipse the century mark in receiving yards for the fourth time this season. Allen is strictly in WR2 territory going forward, and that includes the short-term when the Chargers host the Bengals in Week 13.
