Two players that likely helped get you into your fantasy football semifinals might have just knocked you out of the playoffs. During an epic 29-28 Los Angeles Chargers' win over the Kansas City Chiefs, typical fantasy WR1s Tyreek Hill and Keenan Allen put up some real stinkers.

Hill caught four passes for 46 yards on seven targets, while Allen literally put up a zero – no targets, no catches, and one almost-great catch. 

The pass was ruled incomplete, and since there was a defensive holding call on the play, it didn't even count as a target for Allen. Coming off five straight games with a touchdown, this is not what Allen's fantasy owners expected from a guy leading his team in targets and yards heading into the Thursday night game.


To make matters worse, Allen watched the entire second half on the sideline after leaving with a hip injury with 10:37 left in the second quarter.

And Allen also watched his teammate, Mike Williams, put up the best game of his season – seven catches, nine targets, 76 yards receiving, two touchdowns, plus a 19-yard rushing touchdown.


Sure, there's still a lot of football left to be played in Week 15, but the performances by these two WR1s could be the difference between you making your fantasy championship and you watching another owner advance come Monday night.
