2018 Fantasy Outlook
The seventh overall pick in the draft, Allen is expected to sit to at least start the year in Buffalo. Coach Sean McDermott said Allen will compete in training camp with AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman for the starting job, but scouts question whether Allen's game is ready for the NFL. At 6-5, 237, Allen has perfect size for a quarterback, and he has one of the league's strongest arms. But he struggled mightily with accuracy in college at Wyoming, and the need to work on his decision-making and timing likely means he's destined for the backup job behind McCarron. Allen can make all the throws - downfield, outside the numbers, on the run, what have you - but playing behind a shaky offensive line (it lost three starters) with few receiving threats besides Kelvin Benjamin is a tough proposition for any rookie. Nevertheless, McCarron, the four-year backup in Cincinnati, is unproven as well, and whoever emerges with the job is likely to spend more time in a game-manager role than anything, with LeSean McCoy remaining the offensive centerpiece.

Begins week with full practice

November 19, 2018
Coach Sean McDermott said that Allen (elbow) will put in a full practice Monday and is on track to start the Bills' Week 12 game against the Jaguars, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
McDermott stressed that the coaching staff is taking it "one day at a time" with the rookie as he works back from a sprained right elbow, but Allen's full participation in practice coming out of the Bills' bye week offers further reassurance that he's trending positively in his recovery. Since the Bills won't have to release their first injury report of Week 12 until Wednesday, Allen will retain a designation for the time being, but the signal-caller looks poised to put a four-game absence to an end. The Bills have used three different starting quarterbacks (Derek Anderson, Nathan Peterman and Matt Barkley) while Allen was out, with Barkley the only one of the lot to turn in a credible performance. Peterman has since been released, while Anderson remains in the NFL's concussion protocol as of Monday.

Coach Sean McDermott says he's undecided on his Week 12 starting quarterback after Allen's (elbow) teammate Matt Barkley led the Bills to a surprise win Sunday over the Jets, Kyle Silagyi of the Bills' official site reports. "Yeah, give me some time here on that," McDermott said. "We'll reassess [Monday] when we get in and look at the film. I'm just proud of the guys, really, the way they battled [Sunday].
