2020 Fantasy Outlook
Undrafted out of the University of Houston back in 2018, Allen caught on with the Panthers and later beat out third-round pick Will Grier for the backup QB job in 2019. A Cam Newton injury in Week 2 thrust Allen into the starting role, where early success in some favorable matchups inspired discussion that he might be a long-term solution in Carolina. That now feels like a distant memory, after Allen imploded through November and December, ultimately finishing the season with 16 interceptions and 13 fumbles in 13 games. The Panthers then traded him to Washington for a fifth-round pick in the offseason, leaving Allen as the likely backup to 2019 first-rounder Dwayne Haskins, who also was one of the league's worst quarterbacks last season. It won't come as any shock if Allen makes starts this year, and he could benefit from reuniting with Washington offensive coordinator Scott Turner, formerly the QBs coach in Carolina. Things did get a bit more complicated with Alex Smith returning to practice, potentially dropping Allen down to third in the pecking order at some point. Read Past Outlooks

November 16, 2020
Washington placed Allen (ankle) on injured reserve Monday.
ANALYSIS
Allen sustained a season-ending dislocated/fractured left ankle Week 9, so his placement on IR was all but guaranteed. The 24-year-old signal-caller will require surgery to repair damage to his ankle, and he's reportedly facing roughly a four-month recovery timeframe. For the time being, Alex Smith will command Washington's offense under center while Dwayne Haskins works as his top backup.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Promoted late last season to serve as Carolina's backup quarterback, Allen made two appearances, including a Week 17 start. In that outing, he led the Panthers to victory while totaling over 240 yards and three touchdowns. Despite that finish, Allen faces an uphill battle to make the team again this season, as rookie Will Grier was drafted in the third round to be Cam Newton's long-term understudy. If Carolina decides to keep three quarterbacks around, though, Allen could remain on the 53-man roster by impressing during the preseason.
