One simple answer to you all that even have this question…

I keep hearing this question from people and I have come to the conclusion that they all must be Fantasy Football fans! The numbers that he is putting up this season mean nothing to the San Diego Chargers and to the fans of the Chargers. His impact on the field is all that we care about.

Teams are afraid of the impact that he can make on the field. Teams are preparing for him and are he has the attention of multiple defenders on him all the time. It just opens up the field for other players on the field to make an impact on offense.

Allen’s numbers might not be where you want them to be as a fantasy football fan, but his impact on the field for the Chargers is there. Screw the numbers, the only number Chargers fans care about are WINS! This is where I HATE fantasy football.

Philip Rivers makes a living spreading the football around to his receivers. Allen will have his games where he gets a ton of the looks. There will be other times that Antonio Gates or Eddie Royal or Malcom Floyd stand out. The Chargers have a lot of options to get the ball out to. Allen will have his big day. It likely will come against the Jaguars.
