Draft note
by John Paulsen
In the 10 games that Allen started and finished, he averaged 192 passing yards, 1.0 passing touchdowns, 1.2 interceptions and a 6.65 YPA. That’s pretty dreadful, but he’s on the fantasy radar as a QB2 heading into 2019 thanks to some incredible rushing numbers. He averaged 8.1 carries for 58.5 yards and 0.80 rushing touchdowns, effectively adding 10.7 fantasy points per game to his bottom line. His 19.5 fantasy points per game in those 10 games would have been good enough for a QB6 finish over a full, 16-game season. That’s a super optimistic extrapolation because teams are going to adjust to limit his running production, and the Bills added John Brown, Cole Beasley and Tyler Kroft to give Allen more weapons to throw to. Since this is not something he’s particularly good at, it may limit his fantasy upside. Still, given those rushing numbers, he’s an intriguing late round pick, especially in best ball formats where owners don’t have to worry about when they should actually start him.

BUF QB Josh Allen - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs Cincinnati
Josh Allen is 2-0 and that is not a fantasy stat, but it does tell you he is playing well. His yardage was almost identical as Week 1, but he didn't throw a pick against the Giants and produced two touchdowns - one in the air and one on the ground.

Allen has a great matchup for the home opener against the Bengals who are 24th in aFPA to quarterbacks. Cincy wasn't expected to be strong defensively which will mean opportunities will be available for him.

Start Allen for Week 3 as the young quarterback is putting up decent numbers and considering the Bengals defense is down, this is good a week to put Allen in your starting lineup.
