2019 Fantasy Outlook
A sixth-round selection in 2016, Allen is still looking to see the field in a regular-season game. With Jared Goff and Blake Bortles ahead of him on the Los Angeles depth chart, it's unlikely his NFL debut comes with the Rams in 2019. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a contract with the Rams in February of 2019. Waived by the Rams in August of 2019. Claimed off waivers by the Broncos in September of 2019.
Finishes 2019 on downswing

January 4, 2020
Allen completed 39 of 84 passes for 515 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions during the 2019 season. He ran for 39 yards on 10 carries.
ANALYSIS
Allen went from surprise stud to questionable backup very, very quickly during the middle of the season. After posting an impressive 125.6 rating in a win over the Browns, that rating was cut in half to 61.9 in the following game against the Vikings and then was cut almost in half again to 32.4 in a loss to the Bills. Allen deserves at least some benefit of the doubt as the three games were his first regular-season playing experience, but he's been in the league since 2016. Assuming that Denver improves its offensive weaponry in the offseason, Allen could be a solid, inexpensive backup and potential spot-starter behind Drew Lock for the 2020 season, but it'd be a surprise if -- at the very least -- the Broncos don't give 2019 rookie Brett Rypien a shot at unseating him.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
The 2016 sixth-round pick will once again open the season as the Jaguars' No. 3 QB option behind Blake Bortles and Chad Henne. Ideally, he won't have to see the field during the regular season, though if Bortles falters or goes down with an injury, it's possible Jacksonville could give Allen a shot over the 31-year-old Henne. Allen did not appear in any regular season games as a rookie last season.
On the heels of a strong Senior Bowl showing, Allen was selected by the Jaguars in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The Arkansas product will look to crack the roster as the No. 3 quarterback behind Blake Bortles and Chad Henne.
