Breaking Football
Allen cracks my top 15 based on pure upside. He flashed brilliance last year in terms of fantasy potential and considering where I can get him in drafts, he's worth the risk.Jimmy G is unproven, but Kyle Shanahan's system sure is worth trusting. As long as this kid stays healthy, he'll be a steal.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Josh Allen threw 10 TDs last season in 11 games. Furthermore, he was last in the league in adjusted-completion % and last in True Throw Value. That just won't cut it at the NFL level. His legs obviously offer upside, but an NFL QB can not be successful if he's unable to throw a football even remotely accurate. He's a best ball QB and nothing more. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
If you want to trust Josh Allen on your fantasy team this year, good luck. He was extremely volatile last season and he is not a very effective Qb at all, to be frank. Had 1 game with 20 completions last season and had 26 or less attempts in half his games. In the 5 games that he had over 30 pass attempts, he threw exactly two interceptions in each one. He has a lot of work to do as a QB. All about his legs. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
There's a legitimate path to Josh Allen finishing in the top 10 this season. The passing volume isn't going to be there...which means the passing TD's also won't be. Allen's an elite athlete though, and can make up for the lack of passing with his legs. Allen made 11 starts as a rookie, and was over 90 rushing yards or a rushing TD in 7 of those starts. Allen finished the season with just 10 passing TD's...yet he finished within 0.5 PPG of Rivers/Winston/Cousins/Brady/Wentz. That's the power of rushing. I do expect him to carry the ball a little bit less per game. They're going to want to keep him healthy, and the easiest way to do that is limit his carries a bit. However, he's still going to scramble a ton, so he comes with legitimate upside.Last season Jimmy G was the 11th QB off the board, being taken in the 9th round. This season he's the 24th QB off the board, being taken in the 15th round. So what changed you ask? Well the team upgraded their ground game, and added weapons in the receiving game. Oh and now we've confirmed that Kyle Shanahan is an elite head coach. Jimmy G is a better pick this season than he was last year...and now he's virtually free. This is why we don't draft QB's early. Guys like Garoppolo and Lamar Jackson are being taken at the end of drafts, just becasue there are too many elite options
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
You know those analysts out there who have Allen ranked as a top-10 quarterback in 2019? Yeah, it's not because you'll be able to start him every week. No, it's because when he has big weeks, they're really big. He posted top-18-type numbers in just 50 percent of his games last year. Andy Dalton, Joe Flacco, and Nick Foles were better. However, Allen posted 26 or more points (boom) in 33.3 percent of his games, which ranked as the fourth-best number in football. Draft him in best-ball but stay away in redraftDid you guys watch Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard produce half-decent fantasy numbers last year? Between them two, they posted 198.5 fantasy points over the 13 games that Garoppolo didn't play. Over the course of a full season, that would have amounted to the No. 16 quarterback. That was with Marquise Goodwin missing in action much of the time, with Pierre Garcon out for the year, and with Dante Pettis not getting on the field in a full-time role until the end of the season. Not only will Pettis be a full-time receiver, but the 49ers also drafted Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd inside the top three rounds. The running backs on the roster are all better pass-catchers than they are ball-carriers, which again favors Garoppolo
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Allen is an RB3 who also happens to complete 14 passes per game. He'll have some big performances again, as we saw last year, but more often than not, he'll put up 130 passing yards, 0 TDs and 2 interceptions to destroy your week. In Best Ball formats, use the green light on Allen, but even for SuperFlex leagues, he is merely a streamer.Jimmy G was exceptional in his first five games with the 49ers, not knowing the playbook, but still passing for what would have been 4,900 yards if you pro-rated those games to a full season. Last year, however, he was only mortal (3,829 yards, 27 TDs, 16 INT pace) before his injury. Let's not pretend that recovering from a torn ACL is especially easy either. You can dream on him all you want, but there are a dozen and a half more reliable options.
