Allen is leading the way in the receiving game, catching five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown with his team leading, 10-6, at the half. Allen's moment of the game thus far capped a drive where he was frequently targeted by Philip Rivers, who connected with him for a diving, 22-yard touchdown pass to give the Chargers a lead they have not yet relinquished.
Fantasy Spin: If owners in keeper leagues and deeper leagues haven't taken note of Allen yet, now is the time. He has been involved early and often in the Chargers' receiving plans, quelling any concerns about him only racking up fantasy points during "garbage time." We're seeing the same kind of usage that made guys like Malcom Floyd and Danario Alexander fantasy-relevant in Chargers offenses of the past, and Allen has the talent to capitalize from those opportunities. He is well worth a stash in any format, and warrants WR3 consideration in Week 7 versus the Jaguars.
