Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen added muscle to his upper body this offseason, according to his personal quarterback coach, Jordan Palmer. 'He's in crazy shape and spinning it great,' Palmer said.
Huddle Up: Questions about Allen's accuracy from the pocket remain, but he appears focused on trying to improve as a passer. In the meantime, his rushing ability should keep him in the low-end QB1 conversation again in 2020.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen was on target on only 31 percent of passes that traveled at least 20 yards down the field, according to Pro Football Focus. The average in the NFL was 43 percent.
Huddle Up: Allen has a few downfield threats in Stefon Diggs and John Brown, so it would help the offense if he can improve his deep ball. Allen should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a high-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen will be running an offense which returns a league-most 95.4 percent of its 2019 snaps.
Huddle Up: Of course, Allen has one notable new toy to work with in WR Stefon Diggs, but the overall continuity should help Allen take even more strides in his third season as the Bills' starter. Value him as a low-end but solid QB1.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen has 17 rushing touchdowns in 27 career starts. Only free-agent QB Cam Newton (Panthers) has had more rushing touchdowns in his first 27 starts.
Huddle Up: Despite below average accuracy, Newton has been a high-end fantasy quarterback for much of his career because of his rushing stats. Allen may never reach Newton's level, but his running ability can keep him in the QB1 mix.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen forced 20 missed tackles while running in 2019, which ranked second among quarterbacks.
Huddle Up: Allen rushed for 510 yards and nine touchdowns last season to go along with his 3,089 passing yards and 20 passing touchdowns. His running ability adds to his fantasy value and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen completed 69 percent of his passes during two receivers within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage - the worst rate by any qualifying quarterback last season.
Huddle Up: Allen has been a much better quarterback in fantasy than real life through two NFL seasons, and this is yet another stat that reinforces the notion. To their credit, the Bills have given him a quality supporting cast that should be capable of snagging a few more of his errant throws if his accuracy doesn't improve much in 2020. So long as his rushing numbers remain somewhat steady, Allen should remain firmly in the fantasy QB1 conversation this summer.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen completed a mere 17.1 percent of his throws that traveled at least 20 yards downfield, according to Pro Football Focus. It tied Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph for the worst mark in the league.
Huddle Up: Allen's accuracy has long been his biggest shortcoming, but the Bills have taken several steps to help him out since he was drafted in 2018. The latest addition is Stefon Diggs, who is generally considered one of the best route-runners in the league. Fantasy owners can hope that Diggs' arrival will allow Allen to complete over 60 percent of his throws in 2020 - he hasn't reached that mark yet in his career - which would only augment his ability as a runner. Consider him a low-end QB1 again this season.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen raised his completion percentage by six points in his second season and doubled his number of touchdown passes to 20 while throwing three fewer interceptions.
Huddle Up: In addition to taking a step forward as a passer, Allen continued to be a dangerous runner, topping 500 rushing yards and scoring nine times. The addition of Stefon Diggs to the receiving corps should only help his progress, and Allen could be a sneaky QB1 in 2020.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen had a league-high 7.2 percent of his pass attempts dropped last season.
