- Orlovsky: Bills need to tell Josh Allen 'to grow up'
- Pablo Torre: The Bills have to fix Josh Allen's turnover problem
News: 3 days agoAllen completed 21 of 25 passes for 320 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Bills' 48-20 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. He also rushed four times for 17 yards and another score.
Spin: Allen's final numbers underscore how efficient the red-hot signal-caller was against the previously undefeated Dolphins, as he led a game plan that was aggressive right out of the gate. He got Buffalo on the board first via an 18-yard touchdown dart to Gabe Davis to cap off the opening drive, and Allen went on to add 11- and 55-yard scoring tosses to Stefon Diggs before halftime, the latter of which gave the Bills a two-touchdown lead. Allen would add a 13-yard strike to Diggs late in the third quarter and take it in himself from 11 yards out on the first play of the fourth to put an exclamation point on the statement divisional win. After a three-interception night Week 1 against the Jets, Allen has roared back to post an 8:1 TD:INT while completing 76.6 percent of his passes over the next three games. Allen and the Bills now will look to keep their offense clicking across the pond in a Week 5 London showdown against the Jaguars.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Allen is entering his sixth NFL campaign after finishing no lower than second in fantasy points among QBs each of the last three seasons. The 27-year-old was his usual dominant self in 2022, posting 13 top-10 fantasy outings, which tied Patrick Mahomes for the most (in one fewer game). Allen continues to get the job done through the air (no lower than eighth in passing yards and TDs each of the last three seasons) and on the ground (no lower than seventh among QBs in rushing yards and TDs all five seasons). Allen's supporting cast is a bit underwhelming behind Stefon Diggs, but his dual-threat game in Buffalo's pass-heavy offense locks him in as an elite fantasy option.
