Josh Allen is currently averaging 25.1 fantasy points per game and he is the 3rd ranked quarterback in fantasy football. He got off to a blazing start this season, but has cooled off a bit in recent weeks. Allen averaged 29.8 points per game over the first four weeks of the season, but averaged only 15.7 points per game in two tough match-ups in Weeks 5 and 6. Will he return to higher point totals against the New York Jets in Week 7? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bills QB Josh Allen

The New York Jets have allowed 11 passing touchdowns this season. They are allowing an average completion percentage of 71.8, and an average quarterback rating of 99.3. While this all bodes well for Josh Allen, the Jets rushing defense is also susceptible, allowing an average of 125.5 rushing yards per game. They have also given up nine rushing touchdowns this year. Everyone knows Allen can get it done both through the air and on the ground and he will look to exploit weaknesses in both areas in his Week 7 matchup with the Jets. He belongs in all starting lineups this week as he looks to turn in a performance closer to his season average.
