Allen completed 32 of 49 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Cardinals. He also rushed for 38 yards on seven carries and caught a 12-yard TD pass from Isaiah McKenzie.
It was another big performance for the third-year QB, as Allen led the Bills in rushing in addition to being involved in all three of the team's TDs on the afternoon. He's thrown multiple touchdown passes in eight of 10 games this season, leading to a 21:7 TD:INT, and he's also produced six other scores (five rushing, one receiving) as Buffalo heads into its bye week.
Allen completed 31 of 38 pass attempts for 415 yards and three touchdowns while gaining 14 yards and recording another score on seven carries during Sunday's 44-34 win over the Seahawks.
The sometimes inaccurate Allen posted a sterling completion rate of 82 percent and averaged a healthy 10.9 yards per attempt. He managed three touchdown passes after going two games without one and added his fifth rushing score of the season to round out an excellent line. Allen seems to be back on track after struggling for a couple of games and will look to add to his numbers in what could be a high-scoring game against the Cardinals next Sunday.
Allen completed 11 of 18 passes for 154 yards and an interception while rushing 10 times for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Patriots.
Allen was held without a passing touchdown for the second week in a row, but he scored his fourth rushing touchdown of the season from two yards out to put his team up 21-14 early in the fourth quarter. With wide receiver John Brown (knee) playing at less than 100 percent, Buffalo's passing game has taken a major step back after a hot start despite continued production from Stefon Diggs (six catches for 92 yards). Despite his recent struggles through the air, Allen's rushing production keeps him near the upper echelon of fantasy quarterback options, and he gets a great opportunity to find his mojo as a passer with the struggling Seahawks secondary coming to town in Week 9.
Allen completed 30 of 43 passes for 307 yards in Sunday's 18-10 win over the Jets. He added 11 carries for 61 yards and lost a fumble.
Allen found sledding surprisingly tough against the winless Jets, failing to find the end zone after tossing multiple touchdowns in each of his first six games. He lost a costly fumble on 3rd-and-goal down 3-0 in the second quarter, but Allen had no problem moving the ball into field-goal range throughout the contest, as kicker Tyler Bass converted six field goals and missed another two. Allen also led the Bills in both carries and rushing yards, setting a new season high in the latter category. He'll hope to get injured No. 2 receiver John Brown (knee) back when the Patriots come to town in Week 8.
Allen completed 14 of 27 passes for 122 yards and two TD passes with one interception during Monday's loss to the Chiefs. He added eight rushes for 42 yards.
The two TDs and the rushing yards made this a palatable performance from a fantasy perspective, but it was a rough outing for the second straight primetime week for Allen and the Bills, who fall to 4-2. The third-year quarterback has put up his two worst performances of the season in these two games after being a fantasy darling for Weeks 1-4. While Allen still has enough flaws in his game that there will be occasional tough sledding in matchups against championship-level teams like the Chiefs and Titans, he's also improved his game by miles since his rookie season and remains a top-10 fantasy QB. Things get much easier Week 7 with Allen and the Bills traveling to face the Jets.
Allen completed 26 of 41 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions during Tuesday's loss to the Titans. He also rushed four times for 18 yards.
The fantasy stats aren't terrible, but this just wasn't the Bills' night in an ugly 42-16 loss -- the team's first of the season -- with Allen misfiring several times and getting a bad bounce on one of the two picks. His 77.6 rating is by far his worst of the season and he tripled his 2020 interception total on one night. On the bright side, Allen has thrown for two-plus touchdowns all five games this season and now has 14 TD passes on the campaign. He and the Bills will get a chance to bounce back in another primetime game Monday against the Chiefs.
Allen and the Bills remain on track to meet the Titans on Tuesday after the latest round of COVID-19 testing turned up no new positives among Tennessee's players or coaches, according to several media reports.
Things are not in the clear yet, however, as both teams still have to go through more testing with no setbacks. In a strange state of the times, if you've rolled the dice on Allen thus far you've essentially made a bold bet that the game would go on as planned -- or taking it even further, that the last few rounds of COVID-19 testing would come back clean, with your last bailout being a late pivot to Drew Brees or Justin Herbert. On the bright side, Tuesday's Bills-Titans now seems like a decent possibility at this stage given the most recent testing results.
Tuesday's scheduled contest between Allen and the Bills vs. the Titans is in line to proceed as planned, barring further developments, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
That said, the status of the slated 7:00 ET kickoff should still be monitored by fantasy managers, with Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com noting that "another positive (COVID-19 test Monday) would likely throw things into limbo." In addition to having their Week 5 game moved to Tuesday, the Bills' Week 6 tilt against the Chiefs has been moved from this coming Thursday to Monday, Oct. 19.
Allen and the Bills are now scheduled to face the Titans on Tuesday instead of Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The game will only be played this week if there are no more positive tests among the Titans, who have still yet to open up their practice facility following numerous positive COVID-19 tests. As for Allen, at least managers still have a chance of being able to use him this week, though the game being played in Week 5 is still far from a certainty. Still, we should have a better idea of the likelihood of that happening by the time the first wave of games kicks off Sunday, pending the next few days of test results.
Allen (left shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday.
Allen's ability to take every rep at the Bills' first Week 5 session signals that he avoided a significant injury to his non-throwing shoulder during Sunday's win over Las Vegas. He'll resume his starting role Sunday in Tennessee, though the status of the game itself remains up in the air due to several positive COVID-19 test results of late among Titans players and staff.
Asked about the condition of Allen's injured left shoulder Monday, coach Sean McDermott said, "Josh is in pretty good shape, as of this morning," Dante Lasting of the Bills' official site reports.
Although Allen didn't miss any plays, he landed on the shoulder awkwardly in the Week 4 win over Las Vegas and had to go to the locker room for evaluation, while Bills Nation collectively held its breath. We'd be surprised if Allen misses any time since the injury is now officially not considered severe and it's to his non-throwing arm. The third-year quarterback has been nothing short of excellent this season with 12 TD passes and three rushing scores to go with one interception, though the shoulder could potentially limit him in practice this week. It's also worth noting that Buffalo's Week 5 opponent -- the Titans -- still has to work through a COVID-19 outbreak before the game can go off as scheduled in the early wave Sunday.
Allen completed 24 of 34 pass attempts for 288 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Raiders. He also carried three times for minus-1 yard and a touchdown in the 30-23 win.
Allen completed 71 percent of his passes while averaging a healthy 8.5 yards per attempt. He completed touchdown passes to Gabriel Davis and Cole Beasley in the first half while adding a one-yard touchdown plunge of his own in the fourth quarter. Allen has been nothing short of excellent through four games, totaling 15 touchdowns compared to one interception. He'll look to continue his hot start in another favorable matchup next Sunday against the Titans.
Allen completed 24 of 33 passes for 311 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 35-32 win over the Rams. He also rushed four times for eight yards and a touchdown, in addition to losing a fumble.
Allen found Lee Smith for a one-yard touchdown on fourth down to open the scoring, then took it himself from one yard out on the next drive before adding a three-yard score to Tyler Kroft to take a 21-3 lead into the locker room at halftime. He hit Stefon Diggs for a four-yard touchdown to take a seemingly insurmountable 28-3 lead in the third quarter, but Los Angeles scored the next 29 points before Allen led a late touchdown drive capped by another three-yard touchdown to Kroft. All told, Allen has led the Bills to a 3-0 record with 12 total touchdowns compared to four turnovers heading into a Week 4 trip to Las Vegas.
Allen completed 24 of 35 passes for 417 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Bills' 31-28 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. He also rushed four times for 18 yards.
Allen ended up having to do plenty in a game that the Bills were fairly solid favorites in, averaging 11.9 yards per attempt while connecting with eight different pass catchers on the afternoon. The third-year signal caller hit the eclectic quartet of Stefon Diggs, John Brown, Gabriel Davis and Reggie Gilliam for his scoring throws, the final one a 46-yarder to Brown to give Buffalo critical separation with 3:09 remaining. Perhaps almost as encouraging for the Bills' coaching staff was Allen's mistake-free effort, as well as his burgeoning connection with Diggs, whom he targeted a team-high 13 times on the way to an 8-153-1 day for the wideout. Allen will look to build on this landmark effort when the Bills battle the Los Angeles Rams in a Week 3 home matchup.
Allen completed 33 of 46 passes for a career-high 312 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Jets. He also rushed 14 times for 57 yards and a touchdown while losing two fumbles.
Allen consistently kept passing plays alive with his escapability and topped 300 passing yards for the first time in his career while also providing most of Buffalo's rushing production himself. He bounced back beautifully after fumbling on the Bills' first drive, leading his team into the end zone on each of the next three possessions thanks to a two-yard rushing score followed by a four-yard touchdown pass to Zack Moss and a 15-yard toss to John Brown. Allen was on his way to a fourth consecutive scoring drive but lost his second fumble with less than two minutes left before halftime. While he still struggles with turnovers, that flaw is overshadowed by Allen's tremendous rushing production from the quarterback position, and he appears to be taking the next step as a passer heading into a Week 2 meeting with the Dolphins.
Allen took part in practice Monday after missing Sunday's session due to a false positive COVID-19 test, Jourdan LaBarber of the Bills' official site reports.
Several Bills got burned by the false positive test, and while the Bills' quarterback wasn't super pleased with the development, he was able to move on quickly with the rest of his teammates. Bills coach Sean McDermott later stated that this was a good dry run for the team in terms of surprises that may happen in an unusual NFL year.
Allen will miss practice Sunday after receiving a false positive COVID-19 test result, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Several Bills fell into the false positive bucket and will get a day off from workouts, but Schefter's report says all is well and the players should be back to practice shortly after passing through the proper protocols. For Allen, that should mean Monday.
Allen has looked noticeably bigger and stronger in the upper body in recent videos posted by his quarterbacks coach, Jordan Palmer, The Buffalo News reports. Said Palmer, " "It's muscle. He's in crazy shape and spinning it great."
Allen has always been a physical specimen, which has helped make up for some of his longstanding accuracy issues, but the reports show he looks even more chiseled even though the quarterback says he's only gained three pounds this offseason. The Bills have actually gone on record saying they'd prefer their franchise QB runs less going forward, but the bottom line is he's a handful to bring down and you'll get a bonus in rushing yards and even goal-line carries if you use him. Allen is not without his flaws and there's a pretty good debate as to whether he stacks up with other top young starters around the league, but if you're on the "pro" side of the argument, this is probably a good season to get ahead of the curve. He posted a 20:9 TD:INT ratio last season, perhaps not great, but when you add in his 510 rushing yards and nine TDs on the ground to go with a six percent increase in completion percentage (59 vs. 53 in his rookie season), it's easy to see that things are starting to click. Add in familiarity with Brian Daboll's offense and the addition of Stefon Diggs, and there's a chance Allen posts a big fantasy season, even if he does come with more risk than others.
Allen picked up a dangerous new target Monday when the Bills acquired Stefon Diggs from the Vikings.
Allen and the Bills continue to trend up following a playoff season where the quarterback threw for 3,089 yards and 20 touchdowns while running for 510 yards and nine scores. Diggs and John Brown should work as some sort of 1A/1B combo, while Cole Beasley remains one of the more effective slot guys in the league. Add a potential pass-catching feature back in Devin Singletary to the mix along with a tight end with decent upside in Dawson Knox, and Allen should have plenty of weapons to continue improving his numbers as he gains more experience.
Allen completed 24 of 46 pass attempts for 264 yards, adding 92 rushing yards on nine attempts and catching one pass for 16 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's AFC wild-card loss to the Texans.
Allen got off to a strong start with both his arm and legs, capping off an impressive opening drive with a touchdown reception on a trick play. The second-year quarterback regressed in the second half, making some questionable decisions that allowed Houston to catch up and eventually win the game in overtime. Overall, Allen took a step forward as a passer this year (59 percent completion rate, 3,089 passing yards, 20:9 TD:INT) after a mediocre showing in that department his rookie season. The 23-year-old will look to further improve from the pocket as he leads Buffalo's strong supporting cast toward another potential playoff run in 2020.
