5. Keenan Allen vs. the Chiefs
Keenan Allen is somehow both a sleeper and a top target, as the Chargers have become, somehow, a team people love. This is an interesting season in Los Angeles. Can Phillip Rivers finally bring out the best in Allen?
Going against a decimated Kansas City defense, Allen is a perfect matchup this week. There’s no Eric Berry either, so Allen could thrive.
After an injury in Week 1 of 2016 sidelined Allen the rest of the year, he bounced back in a big way. In 2017, the Chargers receiver posted a career high in receptions (102), yards (1,393), catches of 20-plus yards (18) and catches of 40-plus yards (four). Unreal numbers across the board, that’s for sure.
Rivers is the resident gunslinger (sorry Jay, we know you’re busy on Very Cavallari) of the league, and there’s no doubt the air attack makes a big push again to start this season.
