Chargers’ Allen a target magnet
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 effectively, 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, Buffalo 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 offense has been flat.
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 difficult defenses for the rest of the fantasy playoffs .
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.
