Keenan Allen gives fantasy owners 128 yards and a touchdown in loss

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Chargers' rookie wideout continues to exceed expectations this season, posting the highest receiving total of his young career on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen emerged late versus the Washington Redskins and posted another 100-yard performance.

Allen was targeted frequently on the team's game-tying drive after routinely getting good separation versus rookie cornerback David Amerson late in the fourth quarter. Allen converted a key fourth down in the Chargers' final drive and recorded a touchdown in the preceding one. The rookie receiver finished with eight catches for 128 yards and a score on 11 targets, with the last number trailing only Danny Woodhead for the team lead.

Fantasy Spin: Allen continues to be a waiver-wire steal for fantasy owners, who can rely on Allen to be a solid WR3 that presents WR1 upside each week. His latest performance marks the third time in his last four games with at least 100 yards and a touchdown, which now puts Allen on pace to finish the season with 68 catches for 1,054 yards and six scores.

Allen remains one of the most coveted options in dynasty leagues for good reason, and as for the short term, he makes for an attractive WR2 option versus the Broncos in Week 10.
