He had a spectacular rookie season with the San Diego Chargers and the expectations are through the roof. He plays like someone who has been in the league for years.

Defenses are going to put more focus on him this year. With all his success on the field last season, he will get the attention. Is that going to limit his production though?

Allen will be the top option on a number of plays this season and he excels at creating space. He still should get the ball thrown in his direction and he will be able to make things happen after the catch. He has the talent to beat any defense that is thrown at him. He already started seeing double teams last season. The weapons around him this season will be better.

Malcom Floyd stepping back onto the field should be a huge upgrade on offense. Vincent Brown is gaining more confidence and should be more of a threat. Having more threats on the field, will spread out the attention of the defense and allow Allen to make some plays.

Allen can be a top wide receiver in the league. He has that type of ability. He has the right quarterback throwing him the ball. He has the drive. The sky is the limit for the young star. I will be expecting to see this kid on the highlight reels over and over and be talked about around the league. He will bring attention back to San Diego and make this team a legit threat to make a run to the Super Bowl.
