Andrew Seifter

 After a relatively slow start to the season, Allen has re-emerged as an every-week WR1. He enters this week's contest with the Chiefs having scored a touchdown in five straight games and averaging 95 yards per game since the Chargers' Week 8 bye, and he put up 108 yards and a score the last time these teams met. He is a very appealing play in a game that projects as a shootout.

CAR 10 TD over last 6 games to WR

Panthers have allowed two TDs to opposing WRs in 4 of past 68-108 and a TD last time vs KC
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Thomas has gone three games without a touchdown and nine of his last 10 games without reaching 100 yards. His luck could change, as the Panthers have allowed 90 yards and a touchdown to six receivers in the last five games. New Orleans's top wideout maintains a stellar 28.4 percent target share and 86.4 percent catch rate. The season's WR4 is a top-shelf play even if September's earth-shattering upside has dissipated. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Carolina is just 24th against fantasy wide receivers, Thomas should have a monster game this week. The Chiefs are 11th against fantasy wide receivers, but Allen should still be a high-end WR2 this week.
