Keenan Allen and Riley Cooper had monster games in week nine but are they legit?
Analysis: Keenan Allen is quickly becoming a fantasy stud. He caught 8 balls on 11 targets for 128 yards and 1 touchdown Sunday afternoon against Washington. He now has three 100 plus receiving yard games in his last four games. Allen has 38 targets in that four game span and that many targets cannot be ignored. Allen’s fantasy availability is mixed, he’s available in 3-60% of fantasy leagues.
Riley Cooper scored 3 touchdowns Sunday in Oakland but he was only targeted 6 times. With Nick Foles now running the show in Philly maybe Cooper’s numbers will bump up consistently, but who knows? He’s worth a “stash and store” but he’s a better sell high option at this point. Cooper is available in 80-90% of fantasy leagues.
There was also a Dwayne Bowe sighting in week nine. He caught a season high 7 receptions on a healthy 12 targets for 67 yards. Bowe has just 2 touchdowns this year and zero games over 70 yards. He cannot be trusted but he is available in 4-15% of fantasy leagues.
