Allen caught nine of his 12 targets for 133 yards and a touchdown in the 30-10 win over the Raiders on Sunday. He also recovered a fumble for a touchdown early in the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Finally healthy after two seasons ruined by serious injuries, Allen capitalized on his immense potential by recording 102 receptions and 1,393 receiving yards, easily career-highs for the 25-year-old. So long as veteran quarterback Philip Rivers returns for his 15th season in the NFL, Allen projects as a potential early-round selection in redraft leagues come the fall, particularly in points-per-reception leagues given the 25-year-old's immense usage rate (159 targets in 2017).

Allen finished with five catches for 63 yards on 10 targets in Sunday's 14-7 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Allen turned in a pedestrian performance offensively, with the highlight of his day actually coming on a defensive play as he intercepted Jets quarterback Bryce Petty on a Hail Mary to end the first half. After four consecutive performances over 100 receiving yards, Allen has cooled off with a combined 117 yards in his past two appearances. Los Angeles is in the thick of the AFC playoff race at 8-7, so expect a full workload for the team's top wide receiver against Oakland next week.

Allen (back) is not listed on the Wednesday injury

report.

EDGE Analysis

Allen was carted off the field in the second half of Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Chiefs, but he apparently is back at full strength ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets. He'll look to get back on the right side of the century mark, after losing a four-game streak with at least six catches and 105 yards.

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said Monday that he expects Allen (back) to be fine.

EDGE Analysis

Allen was carted off the field in the closing stages of Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Chiefs, failing to reach 100 yards for the first time since Week 10. It seems the cart may have been a precaution, though Lynn stopped short of saying that Allen will return for Sunday's road game against the Jets. The Chargers' injury reports will bear close watching this week, as Hunter Henry (kidney) is also in danger of missing time. Should Allen end up sitting, Travis Benjamin and Mike Williams would be in line for added playing time while Tyrell Williams would figure to see an uptick in targets.

Allen was carted off the field late in Saturday's game due to a back injury, Eric D. Williams of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen was sitting up and seemed in decent spirits as he was getting carted off, but we'll see if this carries into next week, which will be a crucial one with the Chargers' season now on the line after a tough loss to the Chiefs.

Allen caught five of eight targets for 54 yards during Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Allen led the team in targets, but a concerted effort to contain him by the Kansas City defense caused his streak of four straight games over 100 receiving yards to come to an abrupt end. This wasn't exactly what Allen's fantasy owners envisioned, considering his recent success and the matchup against one of the most generous pass defenses in the league. Despite this disappointing effort, Allen remains a top-tier fantasy asset and will look to bounce back next week against the Jets.

Allen brought in six passes (on eight targets) for 111 yards in Sunday's win over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Allen has been absolutely clicking with quarterback Philip Rivers lately, hauling in 39 receptions for 547 yards and four touchdowns over his last four games. He has also been a model of consistency, recording no fewer than six catches and 105 yards over that timeframe. Allen is clearly Rivers' top target, and with the veteran quarterback currently operating on an elite level, the fifth-year receiver is a great option in all formats going forward with three bottom-half pass defenses left on the schedule in the Chiefs, the Jets and the Raiders.

Allen caught 10 of his 14 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

That makes three straight 100-yard performances by Allen after eclipsing the mark just twice in the previous nine games. The 25-year-old has been the apple of quarterback Philip Rivers' eye as of late, leading the team in targets (41) over the the last three weeks by a whopping margin (Hunter Henry is second over that span with 19). Now fully healthy after missing last year with torn ACL, Allen has reemerged as one of the premiere receivers in the NFL, crossing the 1,000-yard receiving threshold for the first time since his rookie season.

Allen caught 11 of his 14 targets for a career-high 172 receiving yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 28-6 win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Allen was absolutely electric Thursday, knifing in and around an over-matched Cowboys secondary. Finally healthy after multiple season-ending injuries the last three seasons, Allen's work after the catch has simply been remarkable, using subtle cuts to dance in and around oncoming defenders. The end result has been a whopping 23 catches, 331 receiving yards and three touchdowns over the last two weeks, with the majority of the yardage coming after the catch. It's unlikely Allen will top his yardage totals for a third straight week, but he should nevertheless be primed for another solid matchup against the Browns next Sunday.

Allen caught 12 passes on 13 targets for 159 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 54-24 victory over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Allen set season highs in nearly every significant receiving category Sunday in what was a dominant performance by the entire Chargers squad. After not making much noise in his previous five games, it was a timely reminder of the talent the 25-year-old possesses. This didn't appear to be a favorable matchup for Allen either, considering the Bills entered the day having allowed only seven passing touchdowns (second in the league) and a 77.8 passer rating (sixth). Up next for the Cal product is a Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Cowboys, who've allowed 16 passing touchdowns (T-20th) and a 96.4 passer rating (23rd) this season.
