Keenan Allen rewards fantasy owners with 106 receiving yards

Stephen Dunn

Allen finished Sunday with 106 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

If there was a silver lining in the San Diego Chargers loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, it was the performance by wide receiver Keenan Allen. Allen caught eight of his ten targets for 106 yards on Sunday. While Allen did fumble the ball, it was his first turnover of his career. He was abusing Bengals cornerback Adam Jones early and often, but several offensive turnovers disrupted Philip Rivers and the rest of the offense for a good portion of the game. Allen was simply unable to break off for a big gain outside of a 22-yard catch in the second quarter.

Fantasy impact: The fumble and inability to find the end zone is likely a disappointment for fantasy owners, but 106 yards against a tough Bengals defense is no small feat. Allen showed his usual athleticism and ability to connect with Rivers for most of the afternoon. He's an every week WR2 with the ability to put up WR1 on any given week. He'll face a generous New York Giants defense in Week 14.
