Another week goes by... another week Allen has seen 10-plus targets. He's also scored in seven of the last nine games, including each of the last five games. Because of all that, he's the WR4 in fantasy, behind only Tyreek Hill, Davante Adams, and D.K. Metcalf. Now, what happens when you mix a wide receiver who is essentially a lock for 10 targets against a defense that's allowed the second-most PPR points per target? The 2.03 PPR points per target the Patriots have allowed to wide receivers is behind only the Cowboys. Some will be concerned about Stephon Gilmore shadowing him, but you need to know that Allen plays 51 percent of his snaps in the slot, which is an area of the field that Gilmore doesn't typically travel. And to be fair, he really shouldn't be going in there, as he's allowed four catches for 80 yards and two touchdowns on just seven targets in slot coverage. It'll likely be Jonathan Jones on Allen most of the game, the cornerback who's allowed the fourth-most yardage in the slot this year. There have been eight wide receivers who've finished with 15-plus PPR points against the Patriots this year, and the best part is that none of them even required 10 targets to get there. Start Allen as a WR1 every week.

Keenan Allen goes for 40 yards and a score in Week 12

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen caught four passes for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 12 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Allen saw 10 targets but could only haul in four catches due to the Bills' tight coverage on Sunday. Allen is typically the top target in the Chargers offense, but Austin Ekeler took the crown in Week 12. Allen has scored in five straight games, and he'll have another good matchup against the Patriots in Week 13. Fantasy managers should be starting Allen the rest of the season as he is firmly entrenched as a top-5 WR in 2020.
