The Texans are 20th against fantasy wide receivers, Allen should be a solid WR2 at home this week.Seattle is just 22nd against fantasy wide receivers, Thomas should see enough targets to maintain low-end WR1 value.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
With Hunter Henry out and Mike Williams limited, Allen's usage rate was extremely high in Week 2, including on a series of downfield routes that he doesn't typically run. Williams should be closer to full health this week, but it remains clear that the Chargers are going to heavily rely on Allen in Henry's absence. Allen is an elite WR1 for a winnable matchup with the Texans this week. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Teddy will lean on Thomas in this start. This was shown with Thomas seeing 13 targets last week. Look for the offense all around to perform better this week, after Teddy was given a full week of starter reps.
Kevin Wheeler

One of only two receivers have seen over half of their team's air yards in the first two games of the season. @GrahamBarfield
