Thomas has a tough matchup against the Broncos, but even in the horrible Super Bowl performance, he still had 13 receptions for 118 yards and 1 touchdown.
Allen had a tough start to the season going against Patrick Peterson and Richard Sherman; he should have an easier time in Buffalo this week.
  
Brandon Funston

Was proud of himself for getting 55 yards in W2 mostly vs. R. Sherman. Will he may not get much more than that vs. BUF D that has allowed jst 1 pass play of 20+ yards - FF = 5/60/0

Well now is the time to trade for Allen. From week 3 on he becomes a must start as a solid No.2 fantasy wide receiver. The Chargers and Allen were able to get both top defenders out of the way early (Patrick Peterson, Richard Sherman) and its now smooth sailing for Allen. Allen has recorded just 10 receptions for 92 yards and has yet to find the endzone through two weeks. Look that to change heading into week 3 as the Chargers travel east to visit the Bills who have allowed opposing team No.1 wide receivers to find the endzone in each of the past two weeks (Mike Wallace, Brandon Marshall).
