Charg­ers’ Allen a tar­get mag­net

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NFL - Tony Holm, Fan­ta­

These play­ers saw their fan­tasy val­ues in­crease or de­crease most based on their per­for­mances in Week 13:


WR Keenan Allen, Los An­ge­les Charg­ers: In a fourthquar­ter come­back, Allen was tar­geted 19 times, catch­ing 14 of them for 148 yards and a touch­down. It’s his fourth con­sec­u­tive game with a TD re­cep­tion.

RB Tarik Co­hen, Chicago Bears: Chase Daniel seems to only have eyes for Co­hen. And why not? Co­hen ran effec­tively, caught 12 of 14 tar­gets for 156 yards and even threw a touch­down pass.

RB Philip Lindsay, Den­ver Bron­cos: The un­drafted rookie had the best game of his ca­reer, rush­ing for 157 yards and a pair of scores. He’s show­ing no signs of let­ting up.

WR Zay Jones, Buffalo Bills: Jones tends to dis­ap­pear against good de­fenses, but two of his last three games have been spec­tac­u­lar. With an­other matchup against the Jets this week, Jones should be strongly con­sid­ered as a start­ing op­tion.

TE Jared Cook, Oak­land Raiders: He has scored in each of his last three games and has been tar­geted fre­quently due to the lack of op­tions in the pass­ing game.


WR A.J. Green, Cincin­nati Ben­gals: Fan­tasy owners had some trep­i­da­tion start­ing Green this week. Then he had a sea­son-end­ing in­jury.

RB Tevin Cole­man, At­lanta Fal­cons: Cole­man has dis­ap­peared. Af­ter rush­ing for a to­tal of 14 yards on 14 car­ries the past two games, there’s no rea­son to ex­pect a turn­around soon.

RB Mar­lon Mack, In­di­anapo­lis Colts: While An­drew Luck’s 52 pass­ing at­tempts cer­tainly had a neg­a­tive im­pact on Mack’s fan­tasy to­tals, the en­tire Colts offense has been flat.

RB Mark In­gram, New Or­leans Saints: In­gram was barely used in a loss to Dal­las. He has a juicy matchup vs. the Tampa Bay Buc­ca­neers next, but then it’s all difficult de­fenses for the rest of the fan­tasy play­offs .

TE Rob Gronkowski, New Eng­land Patriots: Clearly not 100 per­cent healthy and the Patriots aren’t throw­ing to him. Since Week 5 he has missed four games; in the other four, he’s yet to catch more than three passes.


The Charg­ers’ Keenan Allen had a sea­son-high 148 re­ceiv­ing yards, putting him at 996.
