2. Keenan Allen has a tough day against the Cleveland Browns
Not only have the Cleveland Browns been able to register two wins, they have also shown signs of improvement across the board. On the defensive side of the ball, this group features some young and aggressive talent.
It all starts up front with Myles Garrett who is having himself a breakout season. His ability to get after the quarterback has helped force some poor throws. Cleveland’s secondary has been opportunistic in taking advantage of those mistakes.
One of the more aggressive defensive backs has been rookie Denzel Ward. He has already three interceptions on the young season.
Ward’s interception total doesn’t tell the whole story. He has been very effective as a cover man and is quickly developing into one of the better young cornerbacks in the league. He’s someone who is capable of making life difficult for Keenan Allen.
While the Los Angeles Chargers have seen plenty of offensive success, Allen hasn’t had a fast start to the year. He has only one touchdown catch and one 100 yard game which came in the first week of the season.
Allen is obviously one of the better fantasy wide receivers in the league. However, this week isn’t a favorable matchup against an improving Browns defense on the road.
