Second-half breakout players
Keenan Allen among five potential players who could have a big second half
Every week fantasy football offers up its share of under-the-radar players who post numbers that make owners wonder if they are one-hit wonders or potential breakout candidates who can justify a longer-term roster spot.
The Week 9 slate of games seemed to provide a larger than usual pool of these players, so this edition of Fantasy Foresight will review the game tape and metrics to determine which category each falls into.
When a wide receiver posts 16 or more points in three of his past four starts, it would normally preclude him from inclusion in a list like this. However, Allen is still owned in only 41.6 percent of ESPN leagues and saw his ownership move up only 7.6 percent last week.
