Not worried at all. Keenan Allen is about to have one of those Antonio Brown Big Ben make up games. Expect KA13 to receive a ton of looks next week and beyond. The explosion he had yesterday needed to

I like the part where he is getting lots of catches for a lot of yards and scoring touchdowns.

I don't know what qualifies as "special" and that's not a very informative claim anyway. I saw a receiver who, while lacking DeSean Jackson type top gear speed, has sufficient quickness to get adequat

Traded Gordon for Allen and Vereen in a Keeper. I was regretting it at first especially with Gordon going off, but I think I am going to be OK.

I love owning Josh Gordon in multiple leagues, but I think I'd be more than ok with flipping him for Allen and a healthy Vereen (assuming it's a ppr).

I still can't believe Allen's skill set is that of a rookie's. Just. Wow.

Let's be honest fellas.....who is disappointed?

Anyone who started a Bronco receiver over Allen.

ETA: I'm sure no one started Bubba over him... if they did, please PM me. I need some advise for Sunday.

U guys complaining about someone who got 2 tds? Sheesh

16 points in most of my leagues, it's solid but he didn't cover another starter or anything, with the 2 TDs in the 1st half it looked like it was gonna be a huge week again, much like last week.

Some used to complain Allen got his points late in the game, now he's a ghost in the 2nd half. He was mostly shut down tonight. Owners are very lucky.

He wasn't shut down... they didn't pass the ball in the 2nd half!

It's the same keep away game plan they tried to implement the previous game. this time it worked. Had the Broncos possessed the ball more and scored more, Allen would have been more involved. Worst thing to happen for Allen owners was Manning's INT.

Not disappointed, but what a tease to start off like that only to end up with such little attention. Still happy to start him, and love watching the kid play. I think they need to throw to him more, because I think he's the kind of guy who can find ways to make plays with opportunity. They seemed to be more focused in exploiting matchups rather than scheme for a particular receiver, which obviously was a smart gameplan - very impressed with this team and find myself watching them whenever I get the chance (or flipping between Bengal games) Definitely annoying to see so many targets going to Royal, ha , but Great win Bolts!

Yep. Looks like I screwed you all over by playing him. Sorry. Running the wrong route, not turning his head around. :X

Actually on that play I think Rivers was wrong. It's an option route that's designed to be a post if the safety sets up outside, and a corner if the safety sets up inside. The safety set up outside and Allen ran a great route, coming totally open on the post, and Rivers threw it to the wrong place.

This. He wasn't shut down at all. Please watch the game. The bolts ran the ball a ton in the 2nd half due to having the lead and not wanting Maning back on the filed.

17.45pts (includes 11 return yards) is perfectly acceptable, he was projected 16.65pts in my league. I started him over Fitz and White so I can't imagine I'll regret it too much.

Low targets/receptions will give me selection headaches next week, but getting to the championship game is the focus at the moment and he's certainly contributed to that.

Talk about a gamble that could have easily ended up with a 2.7 type of night. This game definitely didn't go the way anyone would have thought but it paid off for those who had Allen in their lineups. Congrats. THat might be a game-winning move. Can't ask for much more if someone tells you your guy is only going to catch 2 passes.

Speaking for myself here, but I think the tinge of disappointment expressed in this thread is probably more to do with Denver starters people might have had in their teams alongside Allen.

It looked like Allen may have dug us out of hole with a massive game, but circumstances made him fall short of that.

Certainly, I am grateful for Allen's game and points haul, taken as an individual roster spot.

Agree. Allen has been a huge redzone target lately. I had expected at least one touch down. I think I even said such before kickoff in this thread. I honestly didn't expect more than 5-50-1. I was hoping for 8-125-2 but I'll take what I got.

A gamble is something like going with Crabtree this week. I am pretty sure 90% of Allen owners started him without question

how on earth is Allen a gamble play? He basically been a top 10 WR in FF since he took over the starting job in the Oakland game

Exactly. He's a must start every week. He had a pretty favorable matchup going into the game. Most people thought this would be a shoot out. If that's a gamble, I want to know what Shutout considered a lock play.

Allen was targeted on 25% of the passes SD threw last night. He only got 1 target in the 2nd half, when they were largely trying to run the ball & milk the clock. In the 1st half, when they were throwing (a little) more, he got 4 targets, out of 12 passes (33%).

Those percentages are slightly ahead of his target ratio since he's been a starter (22%).

His lack of catches/yards last night was more due to the game situation than anything else.

Agreed. I have some sour grapes over Knowshon's night but all in all thanks to Allen I am off to decent start in my playoff.
