Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is active for their Week 13 matchup with the New England Patriots. Allen is dealing with a quad injury that has been bothering him all year. He’s been good playing through it as he’s having one of the best years of his career.

Allen has caught 97 passes for 1,117 yards and seven touchdowns this season. He is third in the NFL in receiving yards and a big reason for that might just be Justin Herbert forcing him the ball. When you have a talent like that, you must get him the ball as much as you can and the Chargers have done just that. Allen leads the league in targets with 129.

Allen should be starting in your fantasy league no matter what. He is a little banged up, but he will still put numbers up. The Patriots also have a solid secondary, but Keenan Allen is Keenan Allen. He might not be a great DFS play because of the value, but he will do just fine in season-long fantasy.
