Gameday Update: Allen is expected to continue leading the Chargers’ passing attack and is projected to score 19.36 fantasy points on ESPN. Williams is expected to be Los Angeles’s third-most productive fantasy option is projected for 12.41 fantasy points.
Thanks to rookie quarterback Justin Herbert—and a team forced to throw the hell out of the ball to keep up—the Los Angeles Chargers wide receivers have become more consistent and better overall producers in fantasy football. So how about this week’s game against the Miami Dolphins?
Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers WRs Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Jalen Guyton
Allen is on pace for his best season in three years. He had 103 yards and a touchdown last week against the Raiders, the second time in three outings he’s had more than 100 yards in a game. He’s averaging more than 80 yards per game, thanks in part to getting at least 11 targets in every game but one this season. He’s a must-start player this week and every week.
Williams has been on a nice run too. He had 81 yards last week, catching five passes on seven targets. The week before that, he had 99 yards and a touchdown. With an increased role in the passing game, he’s a decent start this week.
Unfortunately for Guyton, he hasn’t come close to matching his Week 7 performance that saw him roll up 84 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars. He’s got just 12 yards on two catches over his last two games. That makes him tough to rely on in fantasy.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. Sit Jalen Guyton.
