What we saw Allen do last season was truly incredible. With the addition of Diggs to this offense, the Bills opened things up and Allen absolutely flourished and put up ridiculous numbers. Heading into 2021, the entire crew is back - plus Emmanuel Sanders - and there's very little reason to doubt that Allen can finish as a top-3 option yet again. The Bills will continue to lean on him in the run game and the offense should continue to click as it did last year. There's a serious case to be made for Allen to be the first QB off the board in drafts this season.One of my favorite streaming options at the QB position this year is Newton in New England. Did you know that before Newton contracted COVID-19 in Week 4 last year he was the QB7 in all of fantasy football? This was despite being put in a brand new system late in the off-season - which wasn't really a true off-season - and without any true receiving weapons. Jakobi Meyers was Newton's top receiving option in 2020 and that's not going to lead to productivity from any QB! It certainly was not pretty from Newton, but he still brought consistent fantasy viability with his rushing prowess. Newton saw 42 (!) Red Zone carries last year and scored 12 rushing touchdowns and this was all while battling the after effects of COVID. With a full off-season in this system, plus the revamped receiving corps around him, Newton's my favorite buy at the QB position based on his price tag. There's a possibility that he doesn't start the entire season, but when you're streaming the QB position, you don't need that guarantee. The upside is too much to pass up on with Newton and I'll be drafting him everywhere that I can this season.

All you can ask for out of an NFL quarterback is improvement. Allen has done that every single year, and it's translated to fantasy football as well. His percentage of QB1-type games by year: 41.7 - 43.8 - 56.3. He tallied 26-plus fantasy points in eight games last year, which tied for the most in the league. Even better is that he had just one game that was labeled a bust, which lets you know he's a set-it-and-forget-it quarterback who can be played, regardless of opponent. When spending a high-round pick on a quarterback, that's what you need. Allen can start to be considered around the fourth round.It seems we won't know who the Patriots starting quarterback will be until weeks before the start of the season, but the expectation should be that Newton starts Week 1. He wasn't good in 2020 - there's no denying that, though it certainly didn't help that his top receiver was out for most of the season, and they were weak behind him on the depth chart. The Patriots beefed up their wide receiver/tight end depth chart by signing quite a few players, including Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor, and Hunter Henry. Knowing that Newton still flashed 500-plus yard rushing upside, he can be considered a solid streamer as long as he has the job, but if he plays like he did last year, his starting job will be short lived.

Josh Allen took a huge leap last year. He had a career year in 2020. Those are hard to duplicate in back to back seasons. For where he's being drafted, the cost is too rich for my blood.Cam hurt his hand in OTA's. Hopefully he's okay. Even if he is 1st round pick, QB Mac Jones, is breathing down his neck. The book on Jones is he's not the most gifted QB athletically, but he's very smart and will pick up the offense much quicker than the average rookie QB. If Cam can hold him off, for awhile at least, he has some new weapons in Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor, and Kendrick Bourne. And while they're talented, that's still a lot of moving pieces. I'd rather have more continuity.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
It is hard to believe that Josh Allen had 405.3 fantasy points in 2020, which is similar to the 409.98 fantasy points that Peyton Manning had in 2013. Allen is a fantasy star and he should put up great numbers again in 2021 for one of the best offenses in the NFL. 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The sky is the limit for Josh Allen after he turned up the dial to 11 on his passing game, already adding to his great rushing floor. With not much changing with the offensive personnel, the Bills will continue to lean on Allen in the passing game, running game and on the goal line.After the throwing performance Cam put on last season, it's only a matter of time until Mac Jones gets his shot.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
Josh Allen had a MVP caliber season and ended up as QB1 overall in fantasy. He finished '20 with 4.5K passing yards, a 69% completion rate, 37 TD, and 10 INT. His rushing attempts year over year stayed flat, but his yardage fell from 510 to 421 yards. That's probably a good thing because it meant he wasn't running with abandon as much. However, he still managed eight rush TDs. Outside of one dreadful game in Week 7 vs. SEA, the O-Line played well, but the run game made the Bills one-dimensional offensively, and Allen to Stefon Diggs was pretty much that dimension. In the playoffs, "reckless" Josh Allen started to creep back in as he tried to do too much under pressure, twisting and turning, trying to make plays instead of eating a sack or throwing a ball away. More balance from the run game in 2021 will help the Bills and Allen thrive this season. However, that's not a given. Six times, Josh Allen scored 30+ fantasy points. A fantasy regular season is usually 13-14 weeks long. He's good for six wins, and that puts you in the playoff hunt.

 *UPDATE* Upside remains high & was endorsed as starter, but Mac Jones unlikely to ride pine all year. Weapons upgrade + full offseason could mean return to, or improvement on, early-season Cam that was Top-10.
