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.Dobbins was barely utilized last week after scoring twice in week one, which puts a damper on his season-long outlook. Dobbins is going to be an inconsistent fantasy option that is probably best left on your bench due to the uncertainty regarding his weekly workload.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.Through two weeks, the touch split in this backfield is Ingram 21, Edwards 14, and Dobbins 10. The snaps are somewhat similar with Ingram leading the way with 48, Edwards 46, and Dobbins 43. It seems like Ingram is the one who they'll play the most when the game is close, Edwards is the closer, while Dobbins does everything in between, though that role has only led to 10 opportunities through two weeks. If he hadn't scored those two touchdowns in Week 1, he would be a running back with 83 total yards through two weeks. His role should continue to grow as the weeks go on, but he's a risky start at this moment. The Chiefs are a matchup to attack with running backs, as they've allowed 19 different running backs finish as the RB26 or better over their last 18 games. During last year's meeting, Mark Ingram exploded for 103 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries and chipped in four receptions for 32 yards. That was the second-highest number of carries he had all season. His other two highest totals came against the Steelers and Patriots, so it's obvious they trust him in competitive situations, which this game will be. Ingram should be in lineups as a solid RB2 for this game with a good shot to score at least once. Dobbins is someone I understand the 'want' to play him more than I understand the process. He's a risky RB3/4 option who will disappoint if he doesn't score. Edwards will have a bigger role if they blow out the Chiefs, but we're not expecting that, so he's not a recommended fantasy option.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.Dobbins has a very low floor due to the timeshare in the RBBC, but he also has a high ceiling due to his ability to score from any place on the field. He is a boom / bust flex option against the Chiefs 18th ranked fantasy running back defense.
