Keenan Allen can't stop scoring touchdowns. Count yourself lucky if he's on your roster heading into the fantasy football playoffs.
The rookie wideout had two receptions for 29 yards in the San Diego Chargers' Thursday night win over the Denver Broncos. While that sounds unimpressive on its own, both of those catches were for touchdowns.
Now you're impressed, right?
The first touchdown demonstrated Allen's athleticism, as he leapfrogged a defender before finding the end zone.
This is becoming a bit of a trend for Allen: Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune pointed out he's had four TDs in his last five receptions.

Up to this point in the season, there isn't a better option for Offensive Rookie of the Year.
How could anyone be thinking anyone but Keenan Allen for Offensive Rookie of the Year?— UTKevinAcee (@UTKevinAcee) December 13, 2013
Suffice it to say, if you've got Allen on your team, make sure he remains in the lineup during the final two weeks of the regular season. He's been consistently good the entire season and is definitely worthy of fitting in as a WR2 or WR3.
Only Antonio Gates has more targets than Allen, and there's no reason for Philip Rivers to stop looking his way.
With San Diego finishing up with the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, you shouldn't see a significant drop-off in Allen's production, either.
