Allen caught nine of 12 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 23-22 loss to the Broncos. He also carried one time for one yard.

EDGE Analysis

Allen led the team in targets, catches and yards while posting his fourth-highest output of the season in that regard. He caught a four-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, giving him two scores in as many weeks after a seven-game drought. Allen has 21 catches in three games since the bye and is averaging 90 receiving yards per contest over that stretch, in addition to his two TDs. He'll look to keep it up in next Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

Allen (hip/finger) does not carry an injury status for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen was added to the Chargers' Week 11 injury report Thursday after logging a limited session, but he was on the field Friday and heads into the weekend minus questions about his availability. Through nine games, Allen has hauled in 53 of his 75 targets, en route to scoring two TDS and averaging 76.3 receiving yards per game. Despite the modest touchdown total, Allen's steady volume in his team's offense is enough to give him a solid weekly fantasy floor.

Allen (hip/finger) was added to the Chargers' Week 11 injury report after logging a limited practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

So far there's nothing to suggest that Allen's availability for Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff against the Broncos is in danger, but given that he's a mid-week addition to the injury report, the wideout's situation should be monitored. We'll revisit Allen's status Friday to see if he draws an official injury designation or ends up being removed from the Chargers' final injury report of the week altogether.

Allen caught six of nine targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Allen caught an 11-yard pass in the front corner of the end zone to give the Chargers the lead for good just before halftime. While the 26-year-old has been a bit touchdown starved this season, he remains one of the elite route-runners in the NFL and is the centerpiece of the Chargers' passing game. He'll hope the positive regression continues at home Week 11 against Denver.

Allen caught six of his 10 targets for a season-high 124 yards in Sunday's 25-17 win over the Seahawks. He also carried the ball twice for 28 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Allen set the tone early, taking a set sweep for 28 yards on the team's first drive, then getting free for a 54-yard deep pass on the team's second possession. Whether the sixth-year receiver was the main target based on Sunday's matchup or if was a concerted effort to get Allen more involved remains unclear, but it was a bit surprising to see the veteran receiver claim such a healthy share of the team's targets (38 percent). With only one touchdown on the season, Allen remains a better PPR play as opposed to standard leagues, but with a quality matchup against the Raiders next week, the wide receiver is likely poised for another week of success.

Allen hauled in all five of his targets, amassing 72 receiving yards during Sunday's 20-19 win against Tennessee.

EDGE Analysis

With another respectable output Sunday against the Titans, Allen now has five-plus receptions in each of his past three games, while boasting a remarkable 79.2 catch rate during that span (compared to 68.8 percent catch rate through Week 4). Those with Allen in their lineup rejoice at his consistent volume (at least six targets in every game), and ability to create "splash" plays time and time again, with a reception of 16-plus yards in all seven games this year. Week 8 brings a matchup against a Seattle secondary that has held up extraordinarily well despite considerable turnover in the secondary (no remaining active starters from Week 1 of 2017), ranking among the NFL's top five pass defenses entering Week 7 with 206 yards allowed per game.

Allen caught four of six targets for 62 yards and added 41 yards on four rushing attempts in Sunday's 38-14 win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Melvin Gordon (three rushing touchdowns) and Tyrell Williams (two receiving touchdowns) did most of the damage for the Chargers, though Allen chipped in with over 100 yards from scrimmage. He's topped 60 receiving yards in five of six games ahead of a Week 7 clash with the Titans.

Allen caught eight of his nine targets for 90 yards in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Allen failed to catch a touchdown for the fourth consecutive game, but his 34 percent target share was easily the highest on the team. Especially in PPR formats, Allen remains one of the most consistent options available, but with the likes of Antonio Gates, Mike Williams, Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler dominating the red zone looks, it's difficult to project Allen receiving anything more than a cursory look near the goal line.

Allen caught seven of his ten targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 29-27 win over San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Allen shared the team lead in catches and targets with Melvin Gordon but paced the team in receiving yards on the day. The 26-year-old has not seen fewer than seven targets on the year, but has only one 100-yard game and one touchdown to show for it so far, both in Week 1 against Kansas City. He'll look to bust out in another home game Week 5 against Oakland.

Allen (knee/tooth) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

The Chargers' top pass-catcher is thus good to go Sunday and should see his share of targets in the team's Week 4 attack. Through three games to date, Allen has parlayed his 17 catches (on 26 targets) for 219 yards and a TD.
