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.
