For all the fantasy football buffs out there, the San Diego Chargers have a player on their roster that could be available in your league and should be picked up and placed onto your roster. Chargers WR Keenan Allen should be owned in your league and could be used in spot starts when some of your other receivers are on a BYE week.

Allen could have easily had 3 touchdowns this weekend against the Oakland Raiders. He has shown a great chemistry with Philip Rivers and has been picking up big yards in big chunks. He is getting more and more playing time as the weeks go by. He played in all 75 offensive snaps this weekend and is Philip’s number 1 target at receiver. He was constantly beating his defender and could be used in a ton of fantasy football leagues.

He is only going to get better and with the Chargers pass happy offense, he is going to get the ball thrown in his direction a ton of times. He had a few targets in the red zone and could see more since the Chargers have struggled to move the ball on the ground in that area.

He definitely should be owned in all leagues. I am just happy that I started picking him up last week.
