What to do with Josh Allen on Thanksgiving in Week 13 fantasy football

Josh Allen is a consistent fantasy producer. Will he keep up the consistency in a matchup ion Dallas on Thanksgiving day?

Josh Allen wasn’t perfect against a tough Broncos defense last week, but he still finished as fantasy QB9 with 185 yards passing, two touchdowns and one interception with an additional 56 yards rushing on nine carries. That game is why Allen is such a good fantasy quarterback. His rushing yards alway raise his total numbers enough to push him into the Top 12 quarterbacks, and when he does have an above-average game, his stats as a rusher can promote him into the Top-3 with ease.

Fantasy football analysis: Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen

Allen faces a good Dallas secondary on Thanksgiving. The Cowboys have allowed the eighth fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks, and only four quarterbacks have thrown two touchdown passes while seven have thrown one or fewer.

They did give up two touchdown passes and a rushing touchdown to backup Jeff Driskel two weeks ago, which is a stat line that Allen knows well. Allen has four rushing touchdowns in his last four games, and five touchdown passes in his previous two. He’s also only dropped below 16 fantasy points once. His legs continue to make him a safe play week in and week out.
