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.
