CAR QB Kyle Allen - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 14 at Atlanta Falcons
Kyle Allen had a pretty good fantasy outing against Washington last week, throwing for 278 yards and a pair of touchdowns while adding 22 yards and another score on the ground. He only threw one interception, but he fumbled twice. He now has eight fumbles on the season and he’s been sacked 16 times over his past three games. Allen has been inconsistent and difficult to get a read on this year, making him a volatile fantasy option.
This week, he’ll face a Falcons defense that ranks 28th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this season. At first glance, it’s a nice matchup, but this same defense force four interceptions on him just three weeks ago. Allen has upside, but is too risky to count on in most leagues. He should be considered a fringe QB2 option at best this week.
