A potential MVP candidate, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen will face off with another MVP candidate, Russell Wilson, this week when the Bills host the Seahawks. But that’s not the matchup we’re focused on; instead, we’re looking at Allen against a pass defense that’s been very generous to opposing signal callers, especially when it comes to fantasy football.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bills QB Josh Allen

Allen’s had a bit of a rough stretch lately. For the last two weeks, he’s failed to throw a single passing touchdowns, in games against the Jets and the Patriots. He did at least manage to salvage his fantasy day somewhat last week with a rushing score against New England. He’s got 21,72 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions on the season, and another four rushing scores with 227 yards on the ground.

This week he gets the chance to bounce back against a Seattle team that’s allowing an average of almost 30 points per game to quarterbacks. Kyler Murray of the Cardinals had four touchdowns—one rushing, three passing—against Seattle two weeks ago, a good sign for Allen’s potential fantasy production.
