Josh Allen Fantasy Football News 2019

Bills QB Josh Allen has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Jets. The team announced that Matt Barkley will start in his place. Barkley gets the nod over Nate Peterman, who’s tossed 7 picks — vs. 1 TD — on just 49 attempts. Barkley was signed on October 31st and doesn’t project as much of an upgrade. The Jets D/ST remains an elite option.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jets after a limited week of practice. QB Derek Anderson has been ruled out with his concussion. HC Sean McDermott wouldn’t say on Friday whether Nathan Peterman or Matt Barkley will start this weekend if Allen can’t. Regardless, avoid the Bills passing game in fantasy lineups and start the Jets defense.

The Bills are expected to be forced to turn back to QB Nathan Peterman for Sunday's game against the Bears. QB Josh Allen has been ruled out with his elbow injury, while QB Derek Anderson is expected to miss Week 9 after sustaining a concussion in Monday night's loss to the Patriots. Peterman has thrown 4 INTs on just 32 attempts this season. He turns the Bears defense from a great fantasy play to an elite one.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Bills QB Josh Allen is expected to miss "at least 2 or 3 games" with the sprained UCL in his throwing elbow. Allen is dealing with a partial tear in the ligament and doesn't need surgery. This doesn't sound like a long-term concern, but the Bills figure to play it safe with their 1st-round rookie. We'll see whether they turn to Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson against the Colts this weekend.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Bills QB Josh Allen has been diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right (throwing) elbow. The team is sending MRI results to Dr. James Andrews for a 2nd opinion. We don't have an official timeline for Allen's return, but former NFL head team Dr. David Chao considers the rookie "week-to-week" and believes "a good outcome for the Bills would be a return by Allen some time in November." Buffalo recently signed veteran QB Derek Anderson. We'll see if they roll with him or QB Nathan Peterman, but neither guy is a fantasy option.

Bills QB Josh Allen injured his right elbow or forearm in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Houston. We'll look for an update on his status. Nathan Peterman is in the game for Buffalo.

UPDATE: Allen is officially questionable to return with an elbow injury.

The Bills have named QB Josh Allen their starter for Week 2, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That's no shock after Nathan Peterman's indefensibly bad start against the Ravens in Week 1. If Buffalo's willing to insert its 1st-round pick into that environment, why not go ahead and kick off the Allen Era officially against the Chargers? This, of course, remains a hands-off fantasy situation. Allen, though, brings much more fantasy upside than Peterman with his combo of arm strength and rushing ability. The latter, in particular, makes the Bills rookie stash worthy in 2-QB leagues. Allen's skill set also looks like a better fit for WR Kelvin Benjamin, though we'd like to see Benjamin actually do something before using him in fantasy lineups. Benjamin managed 1 catch on 7 targets at Baltimore.

Down 40-0 against the Ravens in the 3rd quarter, Buffalo has benched QB Nathan Peterman and inserted rookie Josh Allen. Peterman went 5 of 18 for just 24 yards and 2 INTs before leaving. We'll see what these means beyond Week 1. The Bills host the Chargers in Week 2.

The Bills have named QB Nathan Peterman the starter for Sunday's opener against the Ravens. That means we'll have to wait to see 1st-round pick Josh Allen in regular-season action. Peterman fared well in the preseason, completing 33 of 41 passes (80.5%) for 431 yards (10.5 yards per attempt) and 3 TDs vs. just 1 INT. Allen's obviously the long-term answer after Buffalo moved up to draft him, but delaying his debut is likely good for his development. If the Bills' decision here significantly impacts your fantasy football team, you just might be in for a rough year.

Bills QB Josh Allen will start the team's 3rd preseason game against the Bengals on Sunday. The rookie has been surprisingly competent through 3 exhibitions, completing 18 of 32 passes (56.2%) for 176 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. None of that has come against 1st-team defenses, though. So Sunday will be Allen's biggest test yet. If he passes it, he'll likely be under center for Buffalo in Week 1 against the Ravens. In other Bills QB news, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that additional testing revealed QB A.J. McCarron did not break his collarbone in the 2nd preseason game and will return to practice "soon."

Bills QB A.J. McCarron suffered a hairline fracture in his collarbone in Friday night's preseason game against the Browns, according to insider Vic Carucci. So that knocks him out of the QB competition. Rookie QB Josh Allen played well vs. Cleveland, completing 9 of 13 passes for 60 yards and a score. At this point, we'd bet on the Bills rolling with Allen as their Week 1 starter. This obviously remains a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts.

The Bills traded up from #12 to #7 to select Wyoming QB Josh Allen. Allen looks the part. He’s 6’5, 237 pounds with a bazooka arm. He also has boasts plus athleticism, running for 727 yards and 12 scores over the past 2 seasons and registering an 86th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. The problem: Allen can’t hit the ocean when he’s standing on the beach. He completed 56.0% and 56.3% of his passes the last 2 years against subpar competition at Wyoming. And he mustered just a 49.0% completion rate at freakin’ Reedley Community College. Allen also comes with a worrisome history of throwing-arm problems, breaking his right clavicle in 2011 and 2015 and spraining his right A/C joint this past year. Allen now heads to Buffalo, where he’ll at least be familiar with the weather. He won’t have much to work with out of the gate, though. Buffalo currently boasts a WR corps of Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones, Jeremy Kerley, Andre Holmes and Rod Streater. Allen will duke it out with A.J. McCarron for the Week 1 starting job.
