Player Outlook
Allen was the No. 1 Fantasy quarterback in 2021, and he will look to repeat as the top quarterback again this season. He's our consensus No. 1 ranked quarterback this year, and he should be the first quarterback off the board in the majority of leagues. In one-quarterback leagues, the earliest Allen should be drafted is Round 2. And in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues, Allen is a Round 1 selection and could go No. 1 overall. For the past two seasons, Allen has averaged at least 27.9 Fantasy points per game. He has consecutive years of at least 4,400 passing yards and 36 touchdowns, and he has at least 420 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns in every year of his career. The Bills changed his receiving corps this season with Cole Beasley and Emmanuel Sanders gone, but Jamison Crowder, Khalil Shakir and O.J. Howard are in, as well as pass-catching running backs like James Cook and Duke Johnson. And Allen has Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis and Dawson Knox still on his side. Allen is a star, and he should have another standout campaign in 2022.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Playing this weekend

    Allen and other starters will play a "healthy amount" in Saturday's preseason game against Denver, Alaina Getzenberg of reports. There's a good chance this is the only action Allen sees all preseason, giving him a chance to work with new offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey in a game setting. There should already be some level of comfort, considering Dorsey was the Bills' QBs coach the past two years and now leads an offense in which 10 of the 11 projected starters are returning players from last year.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Won't play Saturday

    Allen will not play in Saturday's preseason game against Indianapolis. Some teams will play their starters in the first week of the preseason, but it's the exception rather than the norm, especially for veteran clubs with a reasonable degree of continuity. The Bills have that even with former OC Brian Daboll departing for New York in the offseason, as new OC Ken Dorsey was an internal promotion and will still be working with Allen, Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Devin Singletary and Dawson Knox, among others. The big offseason additions were oft-injured slot receiver Jamison Crowder and rookie RB James Cook.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Comfortable with new OC

    Allen said during last month's minicamp that verbiage and protections have remained the same under new offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey, who previously served as Buffalo's QBs coach for three years,'s Alaina Getzenberg reports. Dorsey replaces Brian Daboll, now head coach of the Giants. Had Daboll not left, Dorsey likely would've, as his work in Buffalo put him on the fast track for an OC job. The Bills still have more continuity than most teams, with Allen throwing to fellow holdovers Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and Dawson Knox, while the new additions include slot receiver Jamison Crowder, backup tight end O.J. Howard and fifth-round rookie wideout Khalil Shakir. The team did part ways with Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley, both of whom faded last year, and the Bills are counting on Davis and the other young guys to step up in 2022. Dorsey could try to get his RBs more involved in the passing game after Buffalo spent a second-round pick on James Cook, but it'll likely be Diggs and Davis leading the way as preferred targets for Allen and his cannon of a right arm.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Late heroics not enough

    Allen completed 27 of 37 passes for 329 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to the Chiefs. He added 68 yards on 11 rushing attempts and threw a two-point conversion. Allen did most of his damage throwing the ball to Gabriel Davis, who finished with 201 receiving yards and caught all four of Allen's touchdown passes. After scoring connections of 18 and 75 yards over the first three quarters, Allen found Davis for a 27-yard touchdown with 1:54 remaining in the fourth. A two-point conversion to the otherwise quiet Stefon Diggs gave the Bills a 29-26 lead, kicking off a wild sequence that saw the two teams combine for 25 points in the final 1:54 of regulation. Allen added a 19-yard touchdown toss to Davis during that sequence, but the Chiefs kicked a game-tying field goal as time expired. It felt like whichever team got the ball first in overtime would win, and that's exactly what happened, as the Chiefs marched it down the field for a game-winning touchdown after winning the toss, ending Allen's season with a loss in Kansas City for the second consecutive season. Allen has cemented himself in the league's top tier of quarterbacks, and his rushing prowess makes him just as valuable to fantasy managers as he is to the Bills.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Five TD passes in wild-card win

    Allen completed 21 of 25 passes for 308 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions during the Bills' 47-17 win over the Patriots in an AFC wild-card matchup Saturday night. He also rushed six times for 66 yards. Allen spearheaded an unforgettable offensive performance by the Bills, one in which the team set a new postseason record with seven touchdown drives in its first seven possessions. The fourth-year signal-caller capped off five of them with scoring tosses to Dawson Knox (twice), Emmanuel Sanders, Gabriel Davis and Tommy Doyle, and he became the third player in the Super Bowl era with at least 150 passing yards and 50 rushing yards in a single half of a playoff game. Allen's 84 percent completion rate on the night also qualified as the highest by a quarterback with 25 or more attempts in a playoff game since Aaron Rodgers' 86.1 percent figure in a 2010 divisional-round game. With this momentous, confidence-building performance under his belt, Allen heads into the divisional round with an abundance of momentum as he and his teammates prepare to either visit the Chiefs or host the Bengals next weekend.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Puts game away late Sunday

    Allen completed 24 of 45 passes for 239 yards and two touchdowns while gaining 63 rushing yards on five carries in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Jets. The Bills had trouble putting the game away until the fourth quarter, when Allen led his team to two touchdown drives. The victory locked up a second straight AFC East title for Buffalo, and Allen finishes the regular season with a 36:15 TD:INT and 4,407 passing yards -- numbers just shy of his production through the air last season despite playing one more game -- and a career-high 763 rushing yards. The Bills will host the arch-rival Patriots next Saturday in the wild-card round.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Overcomes errors in win

    Allen completed 11 of 26 passes for 120 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Bills' 29-15 win over the Falcons on Sunday. He also rushed 15 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns and threw a two-point conversion pass. Allen's passing line tells the story of what an atrocious day through the air it was for the talented signal-caller, a surprising development given the relatively favorable matchup presented by the Falcons defense. However, as ugly as his performance was from a pure football perspective, it was a solid one from a fantasy standpoint thanks to his one- and four-yard touchdown rushes in the first quarter. Allen's passing yardage total was his lowest of the season and his third sub-200-yard effort of the campaign overall, and he'll certainly be aiming to go into the postseason on an exponentially better note when he faces the Jets in Week 18.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Ready for huge Week 16

    Allen (foot) was able to practice fully Thursday. Allen was a much more dicey proposition for the Bills' Week 15 contest after injuring his toe/foot in a crushing overtime loss to the Buccaneers in Week 14, but he came out of the most recent game none the worse for the wear and likely won't have a designation this weekend. This will be one of the more important regular-season games of Allen's young career, as the winner will be in position to take the AFC East crown. Allen is slated to be missing one major weapon in Cole Beasley (COVID-19), but it also looks like veteran Emmanuel Sanders (knee) will be ready to step back in following a one-week absence.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Scores three times

    Allen completed 19 of 34 pass attempts for 210 yards, three touchdowns and one interception while running for 24 yards on three carries in the 31-14 win over Carolina on Sunday. Allen generally did well while playing through the foot tweak he suffered in Week 14, especially given the pressure applied by the Carolina pass rush. Perhaps Allen's box score wasn't particularly clean in this game, but the Carolina defense is often tough against the pass, so between that and the foot issue Allen deserves lenient grading. A Week 16 road game against the Patriots is one of the worst-case scenarios for a quarterback, and the pass blocking might be an ongoing concern, but at least a game like Sunday's serves as reminder that Allen can win even in difficult circumstances.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Looking good for Sunday

    Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Allen (toe) will practice fully Friday and is expected to start this Sunday against the Panthers, Chris Jenkins of the Bills' official site reports. Allen injured his toe in the second half of Sunday's overtime loss to Tampa Bay, but his expected return to full participation in practice bodes well for his chances of not only suiting up Sunday, but also entering the weekend without a designation. The Bills' final Week 15 injury report will be released later Friday and will reveal whether Allen avoids the questionable tag. Even in a losing effort, Allen made NFL history last week, when he became one of three players in league annals to throw for 300 yards, run for 100 and throw multiple touchdown passes in a game.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Still limited in practice

    Allen (toe) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. The Bills are viewing Allen as day-to-day while he deals with a mild case of turf toe on his left foot, but the early expectation is that he'll be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Ideally, Allen will upgrade to full participation in Friday's practice to put to rest any concern about his availability, but if not, he could carry a questionable designation into the weekend. Mitchell Trubisky is also taking some of the first-team reps in practice this week, staying prepared for a potential starting assignment if the Bills elect to hold Allen out Sunday.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Gets day-to-day label from coach

    Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Allen is day-to-day with a sprained left foot following Sunday's 33-27 overtime loss to the Buccaneers. McDermott's description of the injury mostly aligns with a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network from earlier Monday, which indicated that Allen is tending to a mild case of turf toe. Per Alaina Getzenberg of, Allen was sporting a walking boot on his left foot in his postgame press conference Sunday, but the quarterback suggested he wasn't concerned about the injury and was optimistic he would be ready to play next weekend against Carolina. In any case, the Bills are likely to have backup Mitchell Trubisky take at least some reps with the first-team offense this week, allowing him to stay prepared for the start if Allen fails to progress as anticipated. Even if Allen enters the upcoming weekend without an injury designation, the Bills could look to scale back his rushing workload to better preserve his health. In addition to throwing for 308 yards and two touchdowns against Tampa Bay, Allen provided 109 yards and another score on the ground to finish with one of the best fantasy lines of his career.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Mild case of turf toe, per report

    Allen, who had a walking boot on his lower left leg after Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Buccaneers, is dealing with a mild case of turf toe, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Per Alaina Getzenberg of, the quarterback is slated to undergo additional tests Monday. For his part, Allen, who continued to play on after suffering the injury, says he doesn't "think it's going to be a big deal." For now, consider the signal-caller day-to-day in advance of the Bills' Week 15 game against the Panthers.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Throws touchdown despite wind

    Allen completed 15 of 30 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Patriots. He also rushed six times for 39 yards but lost a fumble. Allen unsurprisingly wasn't particularly efficient on a night when wind gusts around 50 miles per hour made it extremely difficult to throw. Compared to opposing quarterback Mac Jones' mere three attempts, however, Allen had far more chances through the air. He capitalized on a New England fumble by throwing a 14-yard touchdown to Gabriel Davis in the first quarter, but that only came after a bad handoff exchange between he and tailback Matt Breida resulted in a fumble of Allen's own. While he managed to compensate with decent yardage on the ground, leading the Bills in the category, the inclement weather combined with a stingy Patriots defense restricted Allen's overall output.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Highly efficient despite mistakes

    Allen completed 23 of 28 passes for 260 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 31-6 win over the Saints. He also rushed eight times for 43 yards. Coming back from a stretch where he'd thrown five interceptions over the previous three games, Allen started off the contest hot by leading a 10-play, 65-yard march that he capped off with a seven-yard touchdown toss to Dawson Knox. He eventually helmed another possession that ended in a field goal before short-circuiting the Bills' last two drives of the first half with interceptions in New Orleans territory. Allen would atone in the third quarter by leading scoring marches of 75 and 53 yards on Buffalo's first two possessions, capping those off with scoring passes to Stefon Diggs (five yards) and Knox (24 yards). Allen would eventually close out the scoring for either club with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Matt Breida, making it a stellar fantasy effort overall. While the continued turnovers are a concern, Allen heads into a Week 13 showdown with the Patriots on Monday night, Dec. 6 with plenty of momentum stemming from Thursday's effort.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Disastrous outing

    Allen completed 31 of 47 pass attempts for 264 yards and two interceptions while running for 50 yards on five carries against Jacksonville on Sunday. It was a dysfunctional and utterly bizarre game in many ways, and Allen's fantasy output was probably the biggest shock among them as the Bills unthinkably lost 9-6 to the Jaguars. Perhaps playing without two starting offensive linemen helped bring about the struggles, and pressure was indeed a problem as the Jaguars sacked Allen four times while hitting him eight times. While a game this fluky isn't a fair representation of Allen in general, it's a brutal missed opportunity for his fantasy investors in a matchup where everything appeared favorable on paper. As much as it might be difficult for Allen's rattled fantasy managers to feel reassured after a game like this, Allen should bounce back against the Jets in Week 10.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Solid, mistake-free in Week 8 win

    Allen completed 29 of 42 passes for 249 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Bills' 26-11 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. He also rushed eight times for 55 yards and another score and fumbled once without turning it over. While the final score shows a 15-point margin of victory, the actual flow of the contest was that of a much tougher win. Buffalo managed to pull away late with 16 fourth-quarter points, with Allen contributing a 19-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs early in the period. The star quarterback also helmed a time-consuming 14-play, 59-yard drive later in the quarter that culminated in a Tyler Bass 39-yard field goal and gave the Bills some all-important breathing room at 20-11 while also leaving Miami with just 3:33 on the clock. Allen's final numbers, which he padded with a seven-yard touchdown scamper to close things out with 1:07 remaining, were certainly fantasy-friendly enough, and he's now tossed multiple touchdown passes in six straight contests. Allen will look to continue his stellar run of play when the Bills travel to face the Jaguars in Week 9.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Stellar performance in rout

    Allen completed 32 of 43 passes for 358 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Bills' 43-21 win over Washington on Sunday. He also rushed four times for nine yards and another score. This was the breakout effort that both the Bills brass that had doled out the big offseason check and Allen's fantasy managers were waiting on from the fourth-year signal-caller. Allen was spectacular from early on against a Washington squad with a reputation for tough defense, racking up touchdown tosses of 28, seven and 14 yards to Emmanuel Sanders, Zack Moss and Dawson Knox, respectively, in the first half. Allen added another five-yard dart to Sanders in the third quarter before closing out Buffalo's scoring with a two-yard touchdown scamper. With his first MVP-caliber performance now under his belt, Allen will look to continue his ascent versus the vulnerable Texans in a Week 4 home battle.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Tosses two TDs in rout of Fins

    Allen completed 17 of 33 passes for 179 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 35-0 win over the Dolphins. He added 35 yards on five rushing attempts. Allen wasn't asked to do too much with the Bills' defense and running game dominating. He gave Buffalo a 14-0 first-quarter lead with a five-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs before finding tight end Dawson Knox for an eight-yard score in the third. Allen almost scored on the ground in the fourth but was ruled down at the 1-yard line on his slide before watching Zack Moss power in Buffalo's third rushing touchdown on the next play. After facing two of the league's toughest defenses to open the season, Allen will next take on a Washington defense that hasn't played well in the early going despite boasting some big names along the defensive line.

  • Bills' Josh Allen: Shreds Green Bay's backups

    Allen completed 20 of 26 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's preseason game against Green Bay. With Stefon Diggs (knee) held out, Allen completed five passes to Gabriel Davis and four apiece to Cole Beasley and Emmanuel Sanders while leading the first-team offense to 14 points on three drives against Green Bay's second-string defense. Allen will get a real challenge Week 1, with Buffalo hosting the Steelers at 1 p.m. ET on Sept. 12. Diggs should be ready for the opener after going through pregame warmups in uniform Saturday morning.
