Even Josh Allen’s most optimistic supporters couldn’t have predicted he’d resemble Michael Vick as a rusher. Allen rushed for 767 yards and 12 touchdowns in 17 career games at Wyoming … then converted 89 carries into 631 yards and eight touchdowns in 12 games as a rookie for the Bills.

While he deserves credit for being special as a runner, he looked like the opposite of special as a passer, ranking among the NFL’s least efficient signal-callers in virtually every metric. He did suffer from the Bills’ lack of reliable pass catchers, though, and he’ll have a more capable group to target this season.

Allen has a high ceiling for a late-round quarterback and a fantasy-friendly combination of deep-ball volume and rushing ability. Ian Hartitz
