Though he’s a polarizing player in the discussion of franchise quarterbacks, there’s no doubt Buffalo Bills trigger man Josh Allen has been an extremely productive player from a fantasy perspective. He takes on the Los Angeles Chargers at home this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bills QB Josh Allen

Allen has been a top-5 quarterback in fantasy points gained this season. He had a little bit of a dip in production from week 5-8, but has surged back since. In the last two weeks against the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks he got 36 points and 26.3 points. He should have another big week going up against a Chargers defense that gives up a ton of points to opposing quarterbacks. The Bolts currently give up over 20 points per game to QBs. On the season LA has given up 20 passing scores and nabbed just five interceptions.

Buffalo is also coming off a bye week and the offense is expected to have all of its weapons available.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Allen as QB1.
