Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

Allen looks the part of an NFL quarterback and has all the physical tools that make NFL GMs drool. Still, coming out of the University of Wyoming he wasn't exactly shredding inferior competition at the collegiate level. Not unlike Deshone Kizer last year, Allen's draft status had more to do with raw talent than actual success. Though the ability is there, he lands in about as bad a spot as possible given the concerns. Neither Nathan Peterman or A.J. McCarron have a bonafide NFL track record or would appear to be the starter of the future, which means the Bills may be tempted to roll with Allen from the jump. That would put him under center behind a bad offensive line and see him throwing to arguably the league's worst receiving corps. It's another instance of an NFL team trying to rebuild by starting with the quarterback position rather than assembling the talent to help put a young signal caller in a position to succeed.

2018 Season Outlook

It's hard to imagine a scenario where Allen is fantasy relevant this season, particularly because outside of an aging LeSean McCoy, the supporting cast in Buffalo is forgettable at best.
