Week 5 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Kyle Allen came back to earth against the Texans last week after four touchdowns against the Cardinals in Week 3. While he got a second consecutive win, he was held to 232 yards, no touchdowns and he lost three fumbles. Allen is a work-in-progress, but early returns are encouraging for a team with playoff aspirations. Fantasy owners should feel similarly about him.
This week might not be the best time to gamble on Allen however. The Jaguars sacked Marcus Mariota nine times just two weeks ago, although they failed to bring down Joe Flacco last week. With talented pass rushers and quality starters at each level of the defense, Allen may have a hard time moving the ball against the Jaguars, making him a risky, low-end QB2 at best this week.
