Huddle Up: Allen missed a handful of games due to an elbow injury, but he came back strong on Nov. 25 and finished with a career-high five total touchdowns, including his first three-TD passing game. He appears to be a nice long-term keeper who could take another step forward for fantasy owners in 2019, especially if the team can get some better receivers in the offseason.

Huddle Up: Allen has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of the last four games but also has six interceptions during that span. He will continue to have some fantasy value because of his running ability but should not be a starting option next week.

Huddle Up: Allen's passing stats don't show a lot of growth, but he has legitimate QB1 upside because of his running ability. He has had at least 99 rushing yards in three of the last four games, adding three rushing touchdowns in that span. Consider him a high-risk, high-reward option against the New England Patriots in Week 16.

Huddle Up: He didn't rush for 100 yards again, but the ground score surely helps pad the stats. There is no viable reason to be brave enough to trot Allen out there next week vs. the New England Patriots. The rookie's only value is in two-QB or superflex formats.

Huddle Up: Allen has struggled with interceptions over the last two games but has also rushed for at least 100 yards in both games. He should have some success next week against the Detroit Lions and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 12/2/2018 5:45pm ET
Huddle Up: One week after running for 99 yards, Allen went over the century mark. His sudden scrambling ability gives him some upside, but he is still too raw as a passer for fantasy owners to trust.
Posted: 11/25/2018 4:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen was back after nearly a month and a half off, and he looked good leading his team to victory. He now has four rushing scores over his past five starts, and is looking like the real deal and a solid long-term keeper for fantasy owners.

Huddle Up: Allen hasn't played since Week 6, but now it looks as if he'll return to his low-end QB3 status against a struggling but still-formidable Jags defense.
Posted: 11/22/2018 2:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen is on track to play in the Week 12 game but will be facing a tough Jacksonville Jaguars defense. Owners should keep Allen on the bench until he has a more favorable matchup.
Posted: 11/21/2018 2:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen appears to be on track to return for the Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but we'll have a better idea on Friday after the official injury designations are revealed.
Posted: 11/19/2018 7:38am ET
Huddle Up: Allen won't be a great option outside of two-QB leagues against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Posted: 11/11/2018 8:12am ET
Huddle Up: Allen will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a right elbow injury Sunday, Nov. 11, but he appears poised to return following the team's Week 11 bye. He had been a limited practice participant throughout the week but the Bills want him to be completely healthy before he sees game action again.
Posted: 11/9/2018 11:17am ET
Huddle Up: Allen may be a game-time decision for the game, so owners should check the inactive list for his status. He likely will be the starting quarterback if he is active but should be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 11/9/2018 7:32am ET
Huddle Up: It looks like Nathan Peterman this week against the New York Jets. He threw 49 times and amassed 188 yards and three picks last week. Stay far away.
Posted: 11/8/2018 6:27pm ET
Huddle Up: While it's good that Allen feels he is finding a comfort level in the NFL, his numbers in the three games leading up to his injury don't show a positive trend. His value is limited to dynasty formats for now.
Posted: 11/8/2018 11:31am ET
Huddle Up: Allen appears to have a chance to start in Week 10, so owners should continue to monitor his progress. He should not be a starting option in leagues this week but could be a possible option later in the season.
Posted: 11/8/2018 10:53am ET
Huddle Up: The Bills have said if Allen is deemed ready, he will start, and that would give everyone a reprieve from Nathan Peterman. Friday's practice will be crucial as usual so see what Allen is able to do.
Posted: 11/7/2018 1:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen hasn't been ruled out yet, so he has a chance to start this week. He easily has the highest upside among Buffalo quarterbacks, but he's too risky to plug in as your starting fantasy quarterback if he's active.
Posted: 11/5/2018 3:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners can monitor the situation to see if Allen has any chance of playing in Week 10. Allen played well at times before the injury but should not be a fantasy option once he returns to the lineup.
Posted: 11/2/2018 8:06am ET
Huddle Up: Allen is progressing, but he's at least a couple of weeks away. Keep him in all dynasty formats, but he's not worth the stash in most leagues except two-QB formats.
Posted: 10/26/2018 6:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen will eventually have a chance to show he can be the quarterback of the future for the Bills, but in the meantime, he is only worth stashing in dynasty formats.
Posted: 10/17/2018 9:05am ET
Huddle Up: Allen is of no use outside of dynasty leagues, which you should keep ahold of him in.
Posted: 10/16/2018 10:55am ET
Huddle Up: Allen and the Bills have certainly struggled with Buffalo averaging a league-low 12.7 points per game, and speculation is that recently signed veteran Derek Anderson will get the start in Week 7 after Nathan Peterman bombed in relief of the injured Allen in Week 6. Stay tuned ...
Posted: 10/16/2018 5:35am ET
Huddle Up: Nathan Peterman would be at the helm in the interim, and he is of no fantasy service.
Posted: 10/15/2018 1:22pm ET
Huddle Up: A week-to-week status usually means a player won't be playing the next game, but we'll see. In any case, you're not starting Nathan Peterman anywhere if he is indeed named the Week 7 starter.
Posted: 10/15/2018 5:06am ET
Huddle Up: The team is going to be cautious with him, and we'll know more after the MRI. Nathan Peterman wouldn't make a good fill-in in fantasy if Allen were out.
Posted: 10/14/2018 12:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Allen will miss any additional time because of the injury. He has played well at times since taking over the job but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Posted: 10/7/2018 1:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen salvaged the stat line somewhat with the rushing touchdown, but it was still an ugly performance from a fantasy perspective. He and the Bills will take it on the road to face the Houston Texans in Week 6, but he isn't a recommended fantasy option in most formats.
Posted: 9/30/2018 1:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen made headlines with a stunning victory in Minnesota last week, running for a pair of scores and posting a respectable stat line. Unfortunately for any fantasy owners who jumped on the bandwagon, the Bills offense was back to being anemic again. The Bills host the Titans in Week 5.
Posted: 9/24/2018 5:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen tried to hurdle a linebacker during the win in Minnesota, and that's likely something the coaching staff is going to want him to curb, too. He was a first-round draft pick for a reason, but there will be growing pains for the young quarterback out of Wyoming. Despite the big win in Week 3, target him as a QB2 going into Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers.
Posted: 9/23/2018 1:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Hopefully you didn't have Minnesota in a survivor pool, and if you did Allen is the biggest reason you're done. He was outstanding. Not only did he do it with accuracy on short to intermediate routes, but he surprised with his feet and made like Cam Newton in his first NFL start on the road. The Bills will try for a second straight road upset in Week 4 at Lambeau Field against the Packers.
Posted: 9/17/2018 2:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen had a defense outing in Week 2 but will be facing a very tough Vikings defense this week. He should probably only be owned in keeper leagues and will not be a starting option most weeks.
Posted: 9/16/2018 2:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen should keep the starting job throughout the season and probably will struggle at times. He will have a very tough matchup next week and should be avoided in all leagues.
Posted: 9/12/2018 6:32am ET
Huddle Up: Allen is little more than a dynasty league piece right now.
Posted: 9/9/2018 4:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen was called upon to replace ineffective starter Nathan Peterman, but the game was well out of hand and the Ravens were just pinning their ears back and coming hard. Peterman was sacked three times, Allen was sacked three times. It's uncertain which quarterback will be under center in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but neither QB is worthy of fantasy consideration.
Posted: 8/26/2018 2:38pm ET
Huddle Up: His numbers look putrid, but Allen was harassed mercilessly by the Bengals, who sacked him five times in less than a half of action. This could be a harbinger of things to come, as much of the pressure was not a result of the rookie holding onto the ball too long. The Bills are going to struggle offensively this season, making anyone outside of LeSean McCoy difficult to start in fantasy.
Posted: 8/20/2018 3:22pm ET
Huddle Up: It was only a matter of time before Allen was given a chance with the starters, especially after AJ McCarron fractured his collarbone. Allen has the talent to succeed in the NFL, but his supporting cast is lacking. He's only worth a late-round flier in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 8/20/2018 7:53am ET
Huddle Up: Allen is a keeper-league stash for now, but he has a chance to start with AJ McCarron (collarbone) iffy for the start of the season. If he beats out Peterman, he'd be a QB2 in fantasy.
Posted: 8/17/2018 7:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen showed some promise and his athleticism, and with AJ McCarron suffering a shoulder injury, he could make a strong push to be the Week 1 starter. He won't need to be rostered in redraft leagues, but he is worth stashing in keeper formats.
Posted: 4/29/2018 1:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Allen will compete with AJ McCarron for the starting job during camp and has a chance to start as a rookie. Allen will be a valuable option in keeper leagues but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in standard leagues if he starts.
Posted: 4/26/2018 5:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Allen could compete with AJ McCarron for the starting job. Allen will be a popular pick in keeper leagues in 2018 but probably can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Posted: 3/3/2018 8:52am ET
Huddle Up: While these numbers don't define a quarterback's ability to translate to the NFL, it gives fantasy owners a helping hand at trying to determine how quickly a player may be ready to adapt to any given team's offensive system. Allen played in the same offense as Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz in college. We witnessed the latter start from Day 1 for the Eagles and become a fantasy asset in Year 2. For Allen and the others, tuck this away as another piece to the overall puzzle.
