No. 1 fantasy QB in each of the past 2 seasons - QB whisperer Brian Daboll is with the Giants now, but Allen is well past the point of being able to take care of himself 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
The back-to-back reigning fantasy QB1 showed no signs of slowing down in 2021. Allen led the quarterback position averaging 24.6 fantasy points per game and a whopping 26.7 expected fantasy points - nearly three points more than the next closest signal-caller. The Bills quarterback's dual-threat ability - third in rushing yards (763) and rushing attempts (122) - provides him a fantasy ceiling that only a few other quarterbacks can match. No quarterback had more top-3 finishes or top-8 weekly finishes than Allen did a season ago That's why he's deserving of being the first quarterback drafted across all formats. Because even after taking a slight step back as a passer in 2021 - 104.9 passer rating vs. 97.9 passer rating - a higher passing touchdown ceiling exists for Allen in 2022. His 5.6% TD rate was worse than in 2020 and ranked just ninth in 2021. Case in point: despite finishing No. 1 overall, Allen ended with the 5th-most fantasy points under expectation.Lamar Jackson had a season to forget in 2021, as he dealt with a plethora of injuries/illnesses and regressed immensely as a passer. Two key metrics at PFF that are important to analyze for QBs are performance in a clean pocket and throwing at the intermediate level. Jackson ranked 28th in passer rating from a clean pocket (90.4) and 22nd in PFF passing grade at the intermediate level (70.0). Despite all his shortcomings as a passer, Jackson still finished the season second in expected fantasy points per game (23.8) and seventh in fantasy points per game (21.3). His expected fantasy point per game output marked the highest of his career thanks to the Ravens' willingness to throw more in 2021. From 2019-2020, Jackson had 37 or more passing attempts in a game only four times. He did so five times in 2021, with Baltimore throwing at a 60% clip. However, I would not anticipate the pass-heavy approach to continue into 2022. Their philosophical change on offense was forced out of necessity based on the injuries. But a lack of passing doesn't impact Jackson they way it does most other QBs with his greatest fantasy asset being his legs. Jackson may never recapture his 2019 rare MVP form when he averaged north of 28 fantasy points per game, but a 22-point per game average seems like his norm based on his last two years of fantasy production. In 2020, he led all QBs in fantasy points per dropback. That cements him as a clear-cut top-5 fantasy QB.

 Now they trade away Marquise Brown... Lamar's among the most overrated in fantasy IMO
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Allen took a step back this year as a passer, but had a better year running the football and finished with 4,168 yards passing, 34 passing TDs, 700 yards rushing, and 6 rushing TDs in the fantasy season. He is as good as it gets in fantasy football at quarterback.Jackson did miss 4 games this year, but he also made strides as a passer averaging 240.2 passing yards per game. His fantasy value is still tied to his 767 yards rushing and 2 rushing TDs. As long as he runs as much as he does, he will always be in the QB1 discussion.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Once ridiculed for being scatter-armed and unpolished, Allen has become one of the premier quarterbacks in the game. He's led all QBs in fantasy scoring in each of the last two seasons. Allen's completions percentage and YPA slipped a bit from 2020 to 2021, and his interception rate ticked up, but he more than made up for it with a career-high 763 rushing yards. Allen has always been an aggressive and effective runner, and that isn't likely to change in 2022.RB injuries that diminished the Ravens' running game and CB injuries that damaged the Baltimore defense translated to increased passing volume for Jackson in 2021, but it didn't boost his fantasy value because his TD production cratered. Jackson is arguably the best running QB of all time. His rushing yardage is bankable, and he won't have another season with only two TD runs. Expect an increase in TD rate, a decrease in passing volume and another season in which he averages 20+ fantasy points per game.
