Josh Allen's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

Josh Allen is a great runner and is projected to lead the Buffalo Bills in rushing touchdowns with 8 to go along with his 700+ rushing yards. But even with these massive numbers he is only projected for 17 passing TDs which keeps him out of the Top 20 in projected fantasy rank. The CBS Fantasy Experts have him as the #18 QB so expect him to disappoint. His #1 WR is John Brown who DID NOT play well when Lamar Jackson, a great running but inaccurate QB was starting. Brown is not projected to be in the Top 60 and is coming up short of the Fantasy Expert's #52 consensus rank.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

According to our projection, you can expect Josh Allen to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 321 projected fantasy points puts him at #19 behind Jimmy Garoppolo and ahead of Kirk Cousins. He has averaged 18.84 fantasy points in his past 12 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 20 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 56%, he is the #22 most highly owned quarterback. Josh Allen is expected to slightly improve on last season's #22 fantasy position rank.

JOSH ALLEN WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Josh Allen is projected for 20 fantasy points which projects to being the #20 ranked quarterback. This may be a week you want to sit Josh Allen. This is a typical week for him with a FP projection that is the same as his projected per game average over the rest of the season. He is ranked above Matthew Stafford but behind Ben Roethlisberger. Week 2 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#22). He is projected for 18.3 fantasy points.

JOSH ALLEN IS A GREAT DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL ($6.9K) AND DRAFTKINGS ($5.6K)

He is projected for 18.9 FanDuel points and 19.8 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$616 more than $6.9K on FanDuel and +$163 more than $5.6K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
