Keenan Allen apologizes to fantasy owners for disappointing game
The Los Angeles Chargers were able to come away with a hard-fought road victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, but Keenan Allen knows some of his supporters will not be thrilled with the result. More specifically, the star receiver understands it was not his best fantasy day.
Allen played after multiple reports indicated he would miss the game with a hamstring injury. He was able to contribute with seven catches for 53 yards. That was actually one of his better games in a stretch of five rough ones, and he acknowledged that by tweeting an apology to his fantasy owners.
Apologies fantasy guys. I owe y’all 1!

Allen was among the first receivers drafted in fantasy this year, and the results have been mixed at best. He exploded for 13 catches, 183 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Houston Texans, but he hasn’t done a whole lot since. He had five or fewer receptions in each of the four games prior to Sunday and has not found the end zone since Sept. 22.
Usually we see NFL players lashing out at the fantasy football community for various reasons, but Allen wants to put up big numbers for those who have put their faith in him.
