Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
The Chargers' offense just didn't look good against the Bengals last week. A banged-up Mike Williams earned more attention from Tyrod Taylor, and that doesn't bode well for Allen this season. I would have faith and leave him in your Week 2 lineup, however, as the Chargers won't be able to just grind out a win versus the Chiefs. They'll need to score lots of points, and to do that, they'll need to pass the ball a bunch. Allen may no longer have the WR1 upside that he used to, but he's a WR3 at worst this week.After missing Week 1, Sutton will be a game-time decision for Denver's game against Pittsburgh. This matchup is an ugly one for him to make his return, as the Steelers' secondary graded as FootballOutsider's sixth-best. I'm fading Sutton regardless of his status this week.
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Keenan Allen was disappointing in Week 1 as he finished with just 4 catches on 8 targets. The Chargers didn't need to throw the ball a ton last week, but Mike Williams outpaced Allen in both targets and air yards. The Chargers may have to pass the ball more than they would like this week as the Chiefs can put up points in bunches, but Allen should be treated as more of a solid WR3 until further notice given the change under center. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I had my concerns about Allen coming into the season with Taylor under center but moved him up based on the fact that Mike Williams was not supposed to play the first few weeks. Not only did Williams play, but he got more opportunity than Allen. Yeah, it was only one target, but Williams had a 43.3 percent share of the Chargers air yards while Allen was at just 27.8 percent. The Chiefs moved on from Kendall Fuller this offseason and went to Antonio Hamilton to cover the slot. In his first start, he allowed 3-of-4 passing for 45 yards in his coverage. He's a former undrafted free agent who's on his third NFL team in three years, so it's not a matchup to be scared of. The Chiefs allowed the fewest yards to wide receivers last year, but they suddenly have three new cornerbacks starting (Fuller replaced, Bashaud Breeland suspended, Charvarius Ward hurt). Allen obviously isn't a lock but getting eight targets in this matchup should produce results. I'm good trusting him as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3.He was reportedly close to playing on Monday night, so I'm expecting him to suit up in Week 2, though the shoulder injury he's dealing with essentially a pain tolerance thing. If he lands on his shoulder wrong, it could be the end of his day, so play it cautious. The Steelers secondary may have allowed some production to Darius Slayton last week, but they haven't been a team to target with wide receivers. The Steelers continually loaded the box with defenders to stuff Saquon Barkley and it hurt them on the back end. There were just eight wide receivers who finished as top-24 options against the Steelers last year, and four of them saw nine-plus targets. The worst part about Sutton is that he doesn't travel into the slot much at all, which means he's going to see a ton of veterans Joe Haden and Steven Nelson. That duo allowed just a 71.5 QB Rating in their coverage last year. Unless Sutton gets in full practices all week, I'd be hesitant to use him as anything more than a WR3/4 with minimal upside in this matchup.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Allen had only 37 yards and no touchdowns in Week 1, which is the issue with him this year. Tyrod Taylor limits him from being much more than a WR3.Sutton should be back this week, he is a boom / bust WR3 against one of the best defenses in the NFL.
