Keenan Allen has a collection of these rookie of the week awards. He has 4 this season already after winning it again this weekend. Allen finished the game against the Chiefs with 5 receptions for 89 yards.
He has definitely let the world take notice of his talents this season. Now that the playoffs have started, he will be on an even bigger stage for the rest of the world to see. Allen is the type of player that will want to shine with the added attention. I look for him to have a good game against the Bengals this weekend and will get more people to take notice of what they passed on in the draft.
Allen will be one of the favorites for the rookie of the year award. It will be a tough competition between Allen and Eddie Lacy for that award, but I am hoping that Allen is able to add another award onto his mantle.
