Keenan Allen’s Coming Out Party
Household Name? Not quite yet, but very much on his way.
Kenan Allen, the third round pick in this year’s NFL draft, came into the season under the radar to say the least. However, after last night’s performance on Monday Night Football I think it’s safe to say Keenan won’t be flying under the radar much longer.
Through his first six games as an NFL player, Allen has totaled 23 receptions for 332 yards and two touchdowns. That’s pretty good production from a third round pick in his inaugural season as a professional football player.
With some early season injuries to the Chargers receiving core, Allen has stepped up in a big way and really taken advantage of the opportunity, including last night on a prime time TV in front of a national audience for the first time. If he and Phillip Rivers continue to develop trust, Keenan will have a breakout season and truly become a household name.
In the fantasy world, Keenan is garnering major attention as well. Leading up to Week 6, he was picked up off the wire more than any other player in the league. This means that serious football fans are starting to take notice.
Here at Surgex Sports, we are very excited to have Keenan as part of our team. His work ethic is second to none and we believe our Surgex line of products have helped keep him healthy and strong, as he begins to become one of the best young receivers in the NFL.
