Keenan Allen is a very solid fantasy play in both standard and PPR leagues. If you have an opportunity to buy low on the second-year Cal wideout, do so immediately.

But DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT, start Keenan Allen this week.

It should be common logic by now, but anytime you see an offensive player, especially a wide receiver, with the letters “vs SEA” sit them down. Immediately.

People stubborn enough to start Aaron Rodgers last week suffer the consequences. Don’t be stubborn, start one of your bench wideouts. They’ll probably have a better game than Allen anyway.
