Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jaguars are 13th against fantasy wide receivers, Allen is a high-end WR2 this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After going through a seven-game touchdown draught, Allen has scored in each of his last two games. He still hasn't topped 71 yards since way back in Week 3 but the fact that he's racked up 22 receptions over the last three games is a step in the right direction. The Jaguars have proven to be a tough matchup for wide receivers despite losing Jalen Ramsey. They've allowed the 13th-fewest points per game to the position as a whole and Allen is slated to see the cornerback who has arguably played better than anyone else on the team, D.J. Hayden (if he plays). On 31 targets in the slot, he's allowed just 20 receptions for 179 yards and no touchdowns. Allen runs nearly 55 percent of his routes from the slot, which is why that's so significant. We've watched the Jaguars slow down some of the better slot-heavy receivers in the game, as Chris Godwin posted 4/50/0, Tyler Boyd 5/55/0, and Jamison Crowder 3/24/0 have struggled to get much going against them. There have been nine top-24 performances against the Jaguars, so they're not unbeatable or anything, but it is a tougher matchup than most realize. Allen should be considered a middling WR2 for this matchup in what should be a run-heavy game for the Chargers offense. He would receive a big upgrade if Hayden is forced to miss the game with a neck injury that had him leave last week's game, so stay tuned.It seemed as if Samuel was going to make up for lost production last week when he caught a touchdown early-on, but Allen's struggles limited his output. While he did finish with 65 yards and a touchdown, it could've been so much more, as Allen completely overthrew him on what would have been an 81-yard touchdown where Samuel's defender fell down. That's been the case with Samuel all year, as Allen has been the league's most inaccurate deep-ball passer, as he's completed just 8-of-38 passes that have traveled over 20 yards. The Falcons have allowed 45 pass plays to go for 20-plus yards, but again, you're relying on Allen to hit Samuel in stride. Knowing he's seen at least six targets in 10 of the last 11 games, Samuel should still be in high-end WR4 territory. It's more about Allen than it is about the matchup, which has gotten much harder over the last month.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Allen has averaged 7.3 receptions per game over the last three, and he's scored in each of the last two. His consistency is coming around, and he's always good for a massive week here or there. Continue using him as a low-WR1 or high-WR2.
