Keenan Allen scores twice for fantasy owners in Week 15

The scoring surge continues for the rookie wideout. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen caught just two passes for 29 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 15. Both of his receptions on Thursday night went for touchdowns, however, marking his second consecutive game with two scores.

Allen was targeted five times by Philip Rivers, finishing second on the team behind Eddie Royal. He now has seven touchdowns in his rookie campaign.

Fantasy impact: There's no question you should be starting Allen every week in every league possible. Despite his recent downturn in targets (eight total over the last two weeks), he's getting valuable looks in the red zone and making the most of those opportunities.

Next week the Chargers take on the Raiders. Allen caught six passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in his first game against Oakland back in Week 5. Look for another solid game from the young receiver. He's on fire.
