The Los Angeles Chargers dependency on Keenan Allen looks set to continue. Jalen Guyton and K.J. Hill have entered the rotation, but don’t look threatening enough to Allen’s share of targets. With a new quarterback in Justin Herbert, the receivers could benefit from some spreading of the ball around, but will he?
Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers WRs Keenan Allen, Jalen Guyton, K.J. Hill
Let’s begin with Keenan Allen, LA’s undisputed #1. Allen comes in to this match up vs the Tampa Bay Bucs as the lion of the group. It stands to reason not much will change, after hauling in 13 of his 19 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown in the 21-16 loss to the Panthers on Sunday. Herbert will have to rely on him to earn a victory.
For Guyton, it’s been an easing in period as he has 4 rec, 53 yards and a TD so far and even with a questionable Mike Williams he didn’t see an increase in targets so he may be the odd man left out this week again.
Hill is a real wildcard and until he can prove a threat consistently he should be avoided in fantasy. He didn't see action until after Mike Williams left last week so unless more injuries appear he could be very limited.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Allen everywhere. Sit both Guyton and Hill.
