Tweaking throwing motion

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-06-12

Allen is working on improving his throwing motion this offseason, ESPN's Alaina Getzenberg reports.

Allen said the changes have felt really good at times and not so good at others. He injured his right shoulder Week 6 last season but still managed to play every game for a fifth straight year, and he confirmed in late January that he wouldn't need surgery. Some of what he's working on this offseason is returning to his pre-injury mechanics after the shoulder discomfort led to a lower, wider motion last year. The other big change will be his receiving corps, with Khalil Shakir the only WR on the roster that's ever caught a pass from Allen. The Bills parted ways with Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis this offseason and brought in Curtis Samuel, second-round pick Keon Coleman, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Chase Claypool and Mack Hollins. On the other hand, Allen and offensive coordinator Joe Brady will have continuity at running back (James Cook, Ty Johnson), tight end (Dalton Kincaid, Dawson Knox) and on the offensive line (four of five starters returning).

Shoulder in better place

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-27

Allen clarified during his season-ending press conference this week that his right shoulder got better as the campaign moved along and that at the moment, he's not planning to have any type of surgery, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Said Allen: "It just felt like it kept getting better as the season went on. And especially these last probably four weeks, felt like it didn't bother me at all. So yeah, I don't think there's anything." The team's brass affirmed later in the week that there are no plans for surgery for their star quarterback. This is nice news for anyone holding Allen in a keeper league, as he'll be able to hit the 2024 season healthy after putting up an extremely fantasy-friendly 40-plus touchdowns (passing plus rushing) for an NFL-record fourth straight season.

Scores thrice in crushing defeat

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-21

Allen completed 26 of 39 pass attempts for 186 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 72 yards and two scores on 18 attempts in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chiefs.

Allen did everything in his power to lift the Bills past the Chiefs in the postseason contest, but a heartbreaking missed field goal capped off multiple follies that eventually cost Buffalo its season. Patrick Mahomes had the better passing performance out of the two phenoms (131.6 QBR to Allen's 86.1 QBR), but Allen's gaudy rushing line gave him the upper hand in terms of fantasy scores. Allen could have had an even better statistical night had top wideout Stefon Diggs (3-21-0) not dropped an absolute howitzer that hit him in the hands near Kansas City's end zone late in Sunday's narrow loss. Allen will wrap up the 2023-24 campaign with 51 total touchdowns (44 in the regular season) and over 5,000 combined yards from scrimmage.

Generates all four BUF TDs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

Allen completed 21 of 30 pass attempts for 203 yards and three touchdowns while adding 74 rushing yards and a fourth score on eight attempts in Monday's 31-17 wild-card victory over the Steelers.

Allen and the No. 2 seed Bills took care of business against a banged-up Steelers unit in the opening round of the playoff schedule. The dual-threat quarterback had a strong game from the pocket (121.9 QBR) while also ripping off a 52-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to give Buffalo a 21-0 lead. Allen would cruise to victory and finish the game scoring all four of Buffalo's touchdowns. With a strong showing out of the gates, Allen prepares to host his long time rival, Patrick Mahomes, when the No. 3 seed Chiefs travel to take on the Bills next Sunday.

Playoff game moved to Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-13

Due to a snowstorm in Buffalo, Allen and the Bills will now meet the Steelers on Monday afternoon instead of Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It's a bizarre situation where there will now be two playoff games on a Monday, but the league couldn't risk having a game at the regularly scheduled time due to emergency conditions in Buffalo. The development might actually benefit anyone using anyone in the passing game for either team, as the snow and high winds may have been so nasty Sunday that any time of successful attack through the air would have bee very difficult to achieve.

Puts it all out there in SNF win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Allen completed 30 of 38 pass attempts for 359 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while rushing 15 times for 67 yards while losing a fumble in Sunday's 21-14 win over Miami.

Fans watching Sunday Night Football were treated to the full Josh Allen Experience and all the ups and downs that came along the way to an eventual AFC East clinching victory over the now No. 6 seed Dolphins. The gunslinging signal-caller threw two more interceptions to bring his final total up to 18 in 17 starts this season. Although one of his picks Sunday turned out to be a savvy decision on a broken fourth down attempt that resulted in a net positive for Buffalo in terms of field position. Allen will finish the regular season with 4,306 yards, 29 touchdowns and 18 interceptions as a passer in addition to 111 attempts for 524 yards and an attention-grabbing 15 touchdowns as a rusher (previous high of seven). The Bills' franchise quarterback will begin preparations for a banged-up Steelers squad next Sunday for the first opening round of the playoffs.

Practices fully Thursday

Allen (neck/right finger) practiced fully Thursday.

Allen was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report and the QB's ability to maintain that level during Thursday's session paves the way for him start start Sunday night's game against the Dolphins. With a win in the NFL's last regular-season game of the season, the Bills can secure the AFC East crown.

Full participant Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Allen (neck/finger) was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Chris Brown of One Bills Live reports.

Allen had some soreness in his neck after Buffalo's previous game, but his full participation in Wednesday's walk-through suggests he isn't in danger of sitting out Sunday's pivotal regular-season finale in Miami. He was asked Wednesday whether the injury could impact his availability, and Allen said "No, not at all," per Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com. Allen's presence Sunday will be pivotal, as the Bills would win the NFC East with a victory but could miss the postseason altogether with a loss, depending on how things unfold in other Week 18 games.

Stinger not a major issue

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-02

Coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday that while Allen is sore after suffering a neck stinger on the final drive of Buffalo's win over the Patriots on Sunday, the coach doesn't believe the soreness will impact Allen's practice schedule this week or his availability for Sunday night's finale in Miami, Alec White of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills are playing for the the AFC East crown in a huge primetime matchup Sunday night, and even if enough things break their way ahead of the NFL's final regular-season game, a loss to the Dolphins would cost the team home playoff games and significant seeding. Thus, it's hard to picture a scenario where Allen isn't out there for the contest, setting the stage for him to be one of the better fantasy options in a week where several starting quarterbacks throughout the league are being rested or are already hurt.
