Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Allen has looked pretty good with Justin Herbert. Since the rookie took over in Week 2, Allen has posted point totals of 13.1, 23.7, 10.2, and 9.9. It's worth noting that Allen's best performance came in a game that Mike Williams left with a hamstring injury. Allen is a high-floor, volume-based play at WR2, but he doesn't have much upside. The Chargers have a litany of faster weapons who are likelier to get deep targets.I like Boyd a lot this week. He caught 7-of-8 targets against the Browns back in Week 2, and he turned those receptions into 72 yards and a score. His short-range targets make him a better option in PPR formats than in standard, but he's a safe bet to hit value, especially with Joe Mixon out of the lineup.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Allen seems like he's on track to play in this one after leaving their last game early with a back injury. If he's on the field, you're starting him in your lineup due to the sheer amount of targets he's going to command. Allen can be viewed as a solid WR2 this week that gets a bump up in Full PPR formats.Boyd hasn't produced as much as we've expected the past couple of weeks, but he's still a fine option to plug into your lineup as a high-end WR3 with upside.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He had to leave their Week 5 game early due to some back issues but they're expecting him to be fine moving forward. Over his last three and a half games with Herbert, he's racked up 42 targets, 30 receptions, 319 yards, and two touchdowns. Despite missing almost one full game, he was the No. 13 wide receiver during that stretch. With Austin Ekeler out of the lineup, the Chargers are extremely top-heavy in where their targets are going, so the concerns about Herbert's upside not throwing the ball a ton in this matchup don't trickle down to Allen very much. The Jaguars are allowing a massive 69.9 percent catch-rate to receivers, along with 9.0 yards per target, which are both in the top-10. There have been 10 wide receivers who've turned in double-digit PPR performances against the Jaguars, though just one of them (Brandin Cooks) has finished better than the WR20. He was also the only receiver who saw double-digit target against the Jaguars, so we shouldn't be worried about Allen's upside here, especially when we see that Adam Humphries totaled 5/48/1 and Tyler Boyd posted 7/90/0, both fellow slot-heavy receivers. Start Allen as a high-end WR2.Some will say that Boyd is a boring WR3 that is fine but this is your opportunity to buy him before they realize he's the only consistent option in this offense. While Green and Higgins battle for more targets on the perimeter, Boyd will reap the benefits. He's seen at least eight targets in four of the last five games and is going into a great matchup against a Browns defense that allowed him 7/72/1 on eight targets back in Week 2. Receivers have seen a massive 140 targets against the Browns, which ranks as the second-highest total right behind the Seahawks. That amounts to 23.3 targets per game, which is more than enough, even when you have three wide receivers getting consistent targets like the Bengals do. The Browns were tired of watching Tavierre Thomas getting burned, so they've shifted to Kevin Johnson, a cornerback who's on his third team in three years. Throughout his five-plus years in the league, he's allowed a 65.3 percent catch-rate, 11.7 yards per reception, and a touchdown every 14.4 targets in coverage. With that being said, he did do a good job limiting JuJu Smith-Schuster last week while Chase Claypool and James Washington did work. Still, Ben Roethlisberger threw the ball just 22 times in that game, so there wasn't really a test. Boyd should remain in lineups as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jaguars are just 17th against fantasy wide receivers, Allen should be a WR2 at home coming off his bye week, as long as his back was able to recover over the bye week.Boyd has not scored a touchdown since Week 2 and has been pretty quiet the last 2 weeks. He is a low-upside WR3 against the Browns, the last team he scored a touchdown against.
