Player Outlook
Allen will battle Jeff Driskel for the right to back up Davis Mills in Houston. Even if Allen wins that battle and Mills misses time, Allen wouldn't be more than a desperation streamer in a league where you need to start multiple quarterbacks.

Fantasy News

  • Texans' Kyle Allen: Will sit out Saturday

    Texans coach Lovie Smith said that Allen will not play in Saturday's preseason game against New Orleans due to personal reasons, Aaron Wilson of reports. Smith also added that Allen missed practice Thursday for similar undisclosed reasons, though it's still unclear just how long the quarterback is expected to miss this preseason. The 26-year-old signal-caller signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with Houston in March after completing 12 of his 19 passes for 120 yards and one touchdown over two games with Washington last season. In Allen's absence, journeyman backup Jeff Driskel figures to see increased run in Saturday's game behind starter Davis Mills.

  • Texans' Kyle Allen: Set to sign with Texans

    Allen agreed Wednesday with the Texans on a one-year deal, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. According to Jhabvala, Allen's deal is for $2.5 million and includes $2.25 million fully guaranteed. The 26-year-old -- who spent the last two seasons with Washington -- will provide Houston with added quarterback depth behind Davis Mills, the team's projected starter for 2022 with Deshaun Watson expected to be traded this offseason.

  • Commanders' Kyle Allen: Won't be tendered by Washington

    Allen isn't in line to receive a contract tender from the Commanders, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Allen earned a roster spot as Washington's backup quarterback in 2021, but he made just two appearances and completed 12 of 19 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown. He'll be free to sign with any other team starting next week after the Commanders acquired Carson Wentz from the Colts on Wednesday.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Barely plays in 2021

    Allen made two appearances during the 2021 campaign, completing 12 of 19 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown for Washington. Allen came back from last year's broken leg and earned a spot on the team as the No. 3 quarterback, then quickly rose to No. 2 on the depth chart after Ryan Fitzpatrick injured his hip Week 1 and didn't return for the rest of the season. No matter, Allen barely ended up playing, with Taylor Heinicke enjoying a healthy season under center, though his performance was less than stellar, especially toward the end. Allen is scheduled for restricted free agency in the offseason, and presumably will be viewed as a backup whether he stays in Washington or ends up elsewhere. Heinicke, meanwhile, is signed through 2022.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Back from COVID list

    Allen (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. Taylor Heinicke was reinstated Thursday, and Washington now has its top two quarterbacks back on the active roster after both missed one game due to COVID-19. Allen should reclaim backup duties while Garrett Gilbert drops to the No. 3 option.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Washington-Eagles moved to Tuesday

    Allen (illness) and Washington will no longer play the Eagles on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Even with the delay, top quarterback Taylor Heinicke (illness), who was placed on the list Friday after testing positive for the virus, will face an uphill battle to clear the necessary protocols ahead of Tuesday's game. Allen, meanwhile, should stand a better chance of being ready for Tuesday, after he was placed on the list Wednesday following his positive COVID-19 test. However, if neither Allen nor Heinicke are available to play, Washington will likely turn to the newly-signed Garrett Gilbert or one of its two quarterbacks on the practice squad (Kyle Shurmur and Jordan Ta'amu) to make the Week 15 start.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Replaces injured starter

    Allen completed four of nine passes for 53 yards against Dallas on Sunday. Allen stepped in after starter Taylor Heinicke left the game with a knee injury in the fourth quarter. Allen lacks Heinicke's athleticism and big-play ability in general, so he'd likely be a downgrade from his teammate in both a football and fantasy sense. However, Allen is the next man up if Heinicke can't play against Philadelphia in Week 15.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Return to field imminent

    Coach Ron Rivera said Friday that expects Allen (ankle) to return to the practice field soon, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Washington held Friday's session at FedExField, during which Allen was seen throwing passes with fellow reserve quarterback Steven Montez. Allen sustained a season-ending dislocation of his left ankle in November that required a procedure. He tweaked the surgically repaired ankle last Saturday and has been sidelined in the meantime. The Football Team is holding a "QB competition" between graybeard Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke for the starting job, leaving Allen and Montez to vie for depth chart slotting, assuming Rivera decides to roster three signal-callers in the regular season.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Sits out to start week

    Allen is watching practice Monday after tweaking his surgically repaired ankle Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Allen was cleared to practice at the beginning of training camp, but coach Ron Rivera suggested the QB wasn't back at full strength, and a setback early in camp reinforces that notion. Realistically, Allen will hope to compete for the backup job with Taylor Heinicke, who is said to be competing with Ryan Fizpatrick for the starting job. As things stand, Allen appears on track for the No. 3 job, assuming Washington even keeps three signal-callers.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Not competing with Fitzpatrick yet

    Allen isn't part of Washington's quarterback competition at the moment, but he could enter the fray once he proves his surgically repaired ankle is back at full strength, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Coach Ron Rivera is calling it an open competition for the starting job between Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke, though it'll be a major surprise if the latter actually ends up starting Week 1. Allen starting would be an even bigger surprise -- realistically, he's more likely to lose his roster spot than win the starting job. In any case, the 25-year-old quarterback has at least made it back on the field for the start of training camp, after missing out on offseason practices. Allen most likely will end up battling Heinicke for the backup job or Steven Montez for the No. 3 spot.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Hoping to be full-go by training camp

    Allen (ankle) is still not 100 percent in his recovery from a broken ankle suffered last October, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. Allen said that he has been happy with how his rehab has gone to this point, but there are still other hurdles for him to overcome. The goal is for him to be able to be a full-go by the time training camp starts up. Allen played solidly at times last season, but will likely be third on the depth chart heading into the 2021 campaign behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Signs tender with Washington

    Allen (ankle) signed his exclusive rights free agent tender with Washington on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The club extended the tender to Allen on Mar. 10, and the signal-caller's 2021 commitment to Washington becomes official with Thursday's transaction. Newly-signed free agent addition Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to head up Washington's quarterback room this fall, while Allen ranks third in the pecking order directly behind Taylor Heinicke (shoulder). As the team's starter Weeks 5 through 9 of last season, Allen posted a 1-3 record while throwing four touchdowns and committing a pair of giveaways.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Given ERFA tender

    Washington extended Allen (ankle) an exclusive rights free agent tender Wednesday, reports. Allen started four games for the Football Team in 2020 before suffering a season-ending dislocated ankle. He's expected to make a full recovery from the injury by April, and with Alex Smith having been released, Allen and Taylor Heinicke (shoulder) enter Washington's offseason program as the top quarterbacks on the depth chart. Of course, the team could also add more competition in free agency or through April's draft.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: On track in rehab

    Allen (ankle) should be healthy by April, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Allen dislocated and fractured his ankle in Week 9, requiring season-ending surgery. He made four starts (but played only two full games) prior to the injury, completing 69.0 percent of his passes for 7.0 YPA, with four TDs, one interception and one lost fumble. Allen isn't scheduled for free agency until 2022, but his future in Washington appears uncertain, as the team recently signed backup Taylor Heinicke (shoulder) to a two-year extension and now figures to pursue upgrades for the starting spot. It isn't clear how Allen and Alex Smith (calf) fit into Washington's picture for 2021, but both should at least be healthy if they're still around come training camp.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Likely needs surgery

    Allen (ankle) is expected to have surgery and could miss the rest of the season, Jeremy Fowler of reports. The fracture in Allen's left ankle reportedly isn't too severe, but it sounds like the dislocation will require surgery, something he'd initially hoped to avoid. With the 24-year-old likely out for the rest of the season, Alex Smith will take over as the starting quarterback for Week 10 at Detroit. There's also a decent chance Dwayne Haskins gets another shot to play at some point this year.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Nearly leads comeback

    Allen (arm) completed 31 of 42 passes for 280 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Washington Football Team's 20-19 loss to the Giants on Sunday. He also rushed twice for eight yards and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. With his team down 10-0 after one quarter, Allen went to work, helping close the gap to 13-10 by halftime with a pair of 70-yard scoring drives, the second of which he closed with a pretty touch pass to Logan Thomas in the back left corner of the end zone. Allen would then spearhead a third 70-yard march that straddled the closing minute of the third quarter and the first 6:04 of the final period, ultimately culminating in a game-tying field goal. After committing a crucial fumble that was returned for a touchdown with 3:29 remaining, Allen bounced back in impressive fashion by capping a 75-yard drive with another nifty scoring toss in the left corner of the opposite end zone to Cam Sims with 36 seconds left. However, he wasn't able to convert the subsequent two-point conversion pass attempt, short-circuiting the comeback. Outside of the costly miscue, Allen certainly acquitted himself well from both a real-world and fantasy perspective, leaving him poised to remain in the starting role for a Week 7 divisional battle versus the Cowboys.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Logs full practice

    Allen (arm) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Allen received medical clearance and proceeded to practice without limitation. His first start of the year was cut short after he took a hard hit to the arm, but he should be back in the lineup for Week 6 against the Giants. Coach Ron Rivera confirmed after Sunday's loss that he still views Allen as the starter, ahead of both Alex Smith and Dwayne Haskins (illness). Of course, Allen is probably just one or two bad games away from losing the job.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Medically cleared to practice

    Allen (arm) has received full medical clearance and is slated to participate in Washington's first Week 6 practice Wednesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. After supplanting Dwayne Haskins as Washington's starting quarterback heading into a Week 5 matchup with the Rams, Allen had his season debut cut short when he took a big hit to his arm from a Los Angeles defender in the second quarter. Before departing, Allen moved the offense effectively, completing nine of 13 attempts for 74 yards while rushing for a seven-yard touchdown on his lone carry. Coach Ron Rivera confirmed after the game that -- if healthy -- Allen would retain the starting job over Alex Smith and Haskins, so the fact that the 24-year-old is taking part in the team's first practice of the week bodes well for his chances of being ready to go for Sunday's game against the Giants. Later Wednesday, Washington will release its first Week 6 injury report, which will reveal whether Allen was a limited or full participant in practice.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Suffers arm injury

    Allen (arm) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. Allen took a big hit from an L.A. defender near the sideline and was examined in the sideline tent before going to the locker room. There's a chance Allen reenters the contest, but Alex Smith has taken over the offense in his stead. Note Washington's previous starter Dwayne Haskins isn't at the stadium Sunday due to an illness, so tight end Logan Thomas, a quarterback in college, may be the emergency option in the event another change under center is needed.

  • Football Team's Kyle Allen: Benefiting from odd schedule?

    A limited offseason program combined with the cancellation of the preseason could work in Allen's favor if the Washington quarterback job is truly up for grabs, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. New coach Ron Rivera has hinted at Haskins being the starter but hasn't outright committed to it. Allen and offensive coordinator Scott Turner worked together in Carolina last season, while Haskins is in the difficult position of learning a new offense on a shortened schedule. The 2019 first-round pick should still be viewed as the favorite to start Week 1, but the possibility of Allen making it a camp battle can't be ruled out. Haskins and Allen were arguably the two worst starting QBs in the NFL last year, though Mason Rudolph and Mitchell Trubisky gave them a run for their money.
