What to do with Josh Allen in Week 16 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Josh Allen ahead of the Bills Week 16 matchup against the Patriots on Monday Night Football.

Not only has Allen made a case for MVP this season, he’s been an incredible fantasy football play for most of the year.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bills QB Josh Allen

Allen has scored over 30 fantasy points five times this year, including twice in the last three weeks, leading the Bills to an AFC East title. Allen also has thrown for at least two touchdowns in the same span, while scoring on the ground twice.

In Week 8’s victory over the Patriots, Allen put up a season-low 12.46 points, as well as a season-low in passing attempts (18), but was able to salvage some points with a rushing touchdown, one of his eight on the season. Both teams relied on the running game, combining for 72 rushes and just 43 pass attempts due to high winds in the weather. I’d look for Allen to do more of the same as he’s done in the last three weeks, averaging 28.69 points per-game heading into Monday Night Football against a 6-8 Patriots team.
