    Bills' Josh Allen: Feeling 100 percent

    Josh Allen noted Tuesday that his throwing elbow feels perfectly fine entering offseason workouts, The Buffalo News reports. "No, no consideration. Obviously in the offseason, I met with [a physical trainer] to go over everything because it compounds throughout the season," Allen said. "I did some therapy on [the elbow] for the first couple weeks, and after that I started throwing. No problems at all."Allen missed four straight games with an elbow injury before returning to start the final six contests of his rookie season. Not only is Allen's health in good order, but the weak Buffalo offense received a major boost this offseason with the Buffalo Bills getting heavily involved in free agency and making most of their moves on that side of the ball. Allen's line should be improved, while players like John Brown, Cole Beasley, Tyler Kroft and Frank Gore give the offense more zest. Given Allen's strong running ability (631 and a whopping eight rushing scores in 2018), the second-year signal-caller would be quite the dynamic fantasy play if the team can establish a more respectable passing game.

    Bills' Josh Allen: Shoulder in good shape

    General manager Brandon Beane confirmed this week that the shoulder injury that sidelined Josh Allen for four games during his rookie season has completely healed and should not have any impact on the quarterback's offseason work, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.Allen validated his health by concluding the season with a bang, throwing for three scores while running in another two in a big win over the Dolphins, taking home AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors in the process. While the big-armed Allen certainly had his ups and downs, he'll enter his second season with plenty of fantasy promise based on his ability to churn out yardage and scores on the ground. His accuracy still needs some work and may always be an issue, and the Buffalo Bills would benefit by getting more offensive talent around him. Even with only modest offseason personnel changes, however, Allen's dual-threat abilities -- he rushed for 631 yards and eight scores this season -- would be enough to make him an intriguing option for next season.

    Bills' Josh Allen: Runs wild as rookie

    Josh Allen completed 17 of 26 passes for 224 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 42-17 win over Miami. He also rushed nine times for 95 yards and two touchdowns, finishing his rookie campaign with 2,074 yards, 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions through the air, along with 89 carries for 631 yards and eight touchdowns.Allen was drafted in the first round thanks to his tremendous physical gifts, but his prolific rushing totals significantly surpassed expectations. If he ever figures out how to also pass effectively, the big-armed quarterback would become one of the most dangerous fantasy options at his position. Buffalo's goals this offseason should focus on surrounding Allen with significantly greater talent on offense.

    Bills' Josh Allen: Awful outside of garbage time TD

    Josh Allen completed 20 of 41 passes for 217 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions while rushing five times for 30 yards in Sunday's 24-12 loss to New England.The Patriots didn't give Allen much room to run, and his inaccurate arm couldn't move the offense through the air. Allen's stats in this one were bolstered by a 31-yard, garbage time touchdown to Zay Jones with 1:08 remaining, but he struggled mightily while the result was still in question. Owners who started to look Allen's way due to his deceptively strong play with his legs will need to hope he finds more running room against the Dolphins in Week 17, as the rookie still doesn't look NFL-ready when it comes to throwing the ball.

    Bills' Josh Allen: Wins despite subpar cast

    Josh Allen completed 13 of 26 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown while adding 16 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in Sunday's 14-13 win over Detroit.Allen continued to do damage with his legs, finding paydirt on a three-yard scramble in the second quarter. His atrocious supporting cast got even worse as the game wore on, as the Buffalo Bills were already without their top two running backs and also lost fill-in starter Marcus Murphy to a dislocated elbow. The lack of running backs didn't stop Allen from delivering a 42-yard touchdown pass to Robert Foster to take a 14-13 lead with 10:26 remaining, and the score didn't change from there. Owners who look Allen's way against the Patriots in Week 16 will be doing so because of his rushing ability, since the rookie still has a long way to go just to become an average passer.

    Bills' Josh Allen: Legs making up for poor passing

    Josh Allen completed 18 of 36 passes for 206 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets. He also rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown on nine carries, in addition to losing a fumble.Allen capped the opening drive with a six-yard rushing touchdown en route to 87 first-half rushing yards. The athletic rookie has bolstered his fantasy stock by piling up 335 yards on the ground over the past three games, but he's also averaging fewer than 200 passing yards and has more interceptions than touchdowns through the air over that span, leaving much to be desired with his play under center. Buffalo didn't draft Allen with the expectation of immediate NFL-readiness, so he remains a high-ceiling dynasty prospect despite his current passing struggles. The Buffalo Bills will host the Lions in Week 15.

    Bills' Josh Allen: Nearly pulls off upset

    Josh Allen completed 18 of 33 passes for 231 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Buffalo Bills' 21-17 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. He also completed a two-point conversion pass, rushed nine times for 135 yards and fumbled once, although it was recovered by the offense.The rookie was spectacular with his legs, leading all rushers in ground yards by a comfortable margin while also putting up the second-highest passing yardage total of his career. The 22-year-old connected with Zay Jones for touchdown passes of 15 and 25 yards in the second and fourth quarters, respectively, while also hooking up with the receiver for a two-point conversion pass subsequent to the latter score. Allen continually moved the chains with his legs, and he nearly allowed the Bills to pull off a sizable upset by buying time and finding Charles Clay all alone in the end zone on a fourth-down play with 1:05 remaining. Although that pass fell just short, Allen certainly provided Bills fans and brass with plenty of reason for optimism with respect to his increasing comfort level under center. He'll look to build on Sunday's effort in a divisional clash against the Jets in Week 14.

    Bills' Josh Allen: Makes some highlights in return

    Josh Allen completed eight of 19 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown and added 99 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Jaguars. He fumbled once, but the ball stayed with the offense.Allen did the bulk of his damage with his legs, but nobody is going to forget the 75-yard javelin-toss that he hit Robert Foster with late in the first quarter, putting Buffalo up by two scores early. It's hard to see what Allen's ceiling is this season for the Buffalo Bills as there isn't a ton of talent along the line or at the skill positions. Still, a few highlight-reel plays against a stingy Jacksonville defense in his first game back is a strong start. Next up is another tough test, a Miami defense ranked in the top 12 in the league in opponent passer rating.
