2021 Fantasy Outlook
Allen started the last five games of the 2020 season after Joe Burrow tore his ACL and MCL against Washington, with mediocre results -- five touchdown passes against four interceptions, averaging 6.5 yards per attempt. Allen re-signed with the Bengals in March and will once again back up Burrow, who is expected to be ready for Week 1 against Minnesota. Read Past Outlooks

Gets garbage-time reps

November 10, 2021
Allen played six snaps and completed one of two pass attempts for six yards Sunday in the Bengals' 41-16 loss to the Browns.
ANALYSIS
Though starter Joe Burrow has stayed healthy this season, Allen has still gotten the opportunity to play in three of the last four games, with all of his appearances coming in garbage-time scenarios. Unlike the prior two occasions, the Bengals were on the wrong side of the blowout this time around, and Allen was merely getting reps to spare Burrow further beatings after he took five sacks earlier in the contest.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2017
2016
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.
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.
