How happy was Allen to see Justin Herbert under center? He was targeted 10 times by the rookie, connecting on seven of them for 96 yards, while the rest of the receivers combined for just six targets. There was an episode of Hard Knocks this preseason where I watched Herbert go over to Allen and said something to the effect of, "I'm just here to get the ball to you, man. Consider me your assistant," or something like to that effect. It's clear he's a fan of Allen's game. The Panthers have Corn Elder covering the slot, a third-year cornerback who's seen just 10 career targets in his coverage. On those targets, he's allowed seven catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns. When the Chargers aren't running the ball all over the Panthers, they should be targeting Allen over the middle of the field. Knowing Allen saw a 30.3 percent target share in Herbert's first start, you should feel confident starting him as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 with a solid floor.There's some pros and cons to Green moving forward. The pros are that he's seen a team-high 22 targets through two weeks and Burrow looks like he's going to be a good one. The cons are that Green has turned those 22 targets into just 80 scoreless yards and hasn't looked like the player he once was. His 3.6 yards per target is the 31st worst mark of all-time from wide receivers who've seen 20-plus targets. It seems every time he gets up off the ground, it's a struggle. He might be working back into game-shape after having 2019 off, which must be the hope. Until we see his efficiency rise, we have to treat him as a risky start in fantasy. Still, his ridiculous 330 air yards through two weeks leads the NFL by a full 34 percent. Take this from someone who loved Green before the season began: I have zero clue what to do. Fortunately, his matchup doesn't entice you to start him this week, as he's likely getting Darius Slay in coverage, one of the top cornerbacks in the game. Slay did move around the formation in Week 1, but then stayed firmly planted at LCB in Week 2, so it's possible we don't have a shadow situation, but I'd expect it. Slay hasn't allowed anything higher than a 97.4 QB Rating in his coverage over each of the last six seasons. Green should be considered a risky WR3 who needs to remind us of the player we once knew. If he does, the volume has been better than ever.

The Panthers are 8th against fantasy wide receivers, Allen is a WR3 this week at home against a Panthers D that has played receivers tough, but has been terrible in almost all other respects. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Allen bounced back in a big way last week and put together a solid performance with Herbert behind center. He saw 10 targets and was able to reel in 7 of them for 96 yards. While this is a fantastic matchup on paper for Allen, the Chargers may not need to throw much to win this game. That limits Allen's ceiling, but he's still a fine low-end WR2 option.People are going to be scared off of AJ Green if they just see the boxscore stats, but we should be focused in on his opportunity. 13 targets is hard to come by for any receiver and it's encouraging to see that Burrow is continuously looking his way. With that being said, this isn't the greatest matchup for Green from a fantasy perspective. The Eagles are currently ranked 24th in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers, which means that it's a tough matchup, and Darius Slay is a big reason for that. Slay is expected to cover Green in this matchup, which means that Green can be viewed as nothing more than a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 this week.
