What to do with Josh Allen in Week 16 fantasy football

How will Josh Allen’s second matchup against the Patriots this year go? We break down the fantasy football start/sit considerations.

Josh Allen and the Bills will face the Patriots for the second time this year in Week 16, but this time the game will take place at Gillette Stadium. Buffalo has thrived under the leadership of the second-year quarterback in 2019, but this isn’t the best matchup for him. Allen has been relatively quiet for the last two weeks, facing top-10 passing defenses in Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

Fantasy football analysis: Bills QB Josh Allen

New England has allowed the second-fewest passing yards (2,384) in the NFL this year and picked Allen off three times in their last meeting. The Bills could very well knock off the Patriots on the road, but Allen probably won’t be the deciding factor. This game is shaping up to be a defensive battle that mirrors the 16-10 bout that ended in the Patriots’ favor back in Week 4. There is some value in Devin Singletary, but not in the passing game.
