Josh Allen

Current ADP: 60.1 (QB7)

There is no quarterback that is receiving as much hype as Josh Allen is as he gears up for his third season with the Buffalo Bills. After the addition of Stefon Diggs, the assumption is that Allen will take a massive leap as a passer this season.

But what makes Allen a hot commodity in fantasy football is his ability to create with his legs. In his first two years in the league, Allen has surpassed 500+ rushing yards in each season and has totaled 17 rushing touchdowns. Although, it’s worth noting that Allen himself said himself that he ‘hopes to run less’ in 2020.

Without question, if Allen continues to produce at a similar level on the ground with improved passing numbers, he could finish as a top 10 or even a top-five quarterback in fantasy football. On the other hand, expecting him to be a much-improved passer is a risky endeavor. Even though he improved his completion percentage by six percent in 2019, he still had a 58.8 percent completion percentage.

Despite finishing as the sixth-best quarterback in fantasy football last season, Allen completed just 25 percent of his 72 deep attempts (passes that travel 20+ yards), which was 33rd among quarterbacks. There are only 32 teams in the NFL. Positioned at his current ADP of 60.1, you’d probably be better off waiting until the later rounds for a quarterback or taking one of Carson Wentz or Ryan.
