FantasyPros
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.Do you know how many times Jackson has finished with fewer than 16.5 fantasy points since taking the starting job in 2019? Four. He's posted 21.3 or more fantasy points in 22-of-30 games during that stretch, which is flat-out ridiculous. On top of that, he's now got better weapons to throw to, yet some are ranking him as the fourth-best quarterback in fantasy? Not me. Jackson should be in the conversation to be the first quarterback off the board.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 The expectations for Jackson heading into 2020 were sky high and he ultimately fell flat with a QB10 finish on the year. NFL defenses were able to hold down the passing game enough that Jackson had to beat them with his legs alone, which wasn't enough to get it done for fantasy football. Now, heading into 2021, the Ravens have invested a ton to fix that issue of the passing game. With a first-round pick in Rashod Bateman, adding Sammy Watkins to the offense, bringing Devin Duvernay assumedly into a starting role, all of this goes together to give Jackson more weapons than he's ever had before. What happens if we see the Ravens take that jump like the Bills did last season and end up throwing the ball a little bit more? All of their off-season moves seem to indicate that this is in the realm of possibilities. With a solid receiving corps now, we could see Jackson take that next step forward as a passer and bounce back to fantasy dominance. You're going to get him at a little bit of a discount this season and that's something I'm very interested in.

Josh Allen took a huge leap last year. Compared to other Fantasy Pros I'm in the minority on him in that I think he takes a step back. 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.Lamar "Action" Jackson disappointed owners in 2020 mainly because they took him too early, but he's still very talented and the fastest guy on the field. His rushing yards add up quickly in the fantasy box score. He had 1,000 yards and he missed a game- incredible! The Ravens improved offensive line should help. He's Michael Vick 2.0. Jackson will be cheaper on draft day this year which I like. Probably because I'm cheap haha! '.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Most fantasy managers expected significant regression from Jackson last year, and they certainly got it, especially early on. Through Week 11, Jackson averaged just 20.3 fantasy points per game, 12th-most among quarterbacks. From that point on, he averaged 27.7 fantasy points per game, most in the league. A large part of his success later in the year was the increase in his rushing yardage, as he went from averaging 57.5 rushing yards per game in the first 11 weeks to 86 rushing yards per game over his final five contests. Jackson will likely continue to rely on his legs plenty, but he'll also have new weapons, including rookie Rashod Bateman and Sammy Watkins. Add it all together and Jackson should provide an incredibly high floor with the upside to finish as the No. 1 quarterback overall again if everything breaks perfectly.
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.It would have been impossible for Lamar Jackson to duplicate his lofty 2019 performance of 420 fantasy points. For the first 11 weeks, it seemed like a combination of the league catching up to the Ravens' scheme and the Ravens being cautious with their best weapon. What resulted were lackluster results. After a Week 12 absence, Jackson posted 80 or more rushing yards in 4 of his last five games, where he finished as a QB1 in each of those final five contests. A more confident Lamar Jackson, coming off exercising playoff demons, is one you should be aggressive on in 2021. After all, it is only his fourth year in the league, and he's still an elite fantasy QB.
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.Despite the narrative that Lamar Jackson "can't throw" his throws have consistently produced fantasy points. He has ranked 2nd and 11th overall in True Throw Value (a BRoto Fantasy Exclusive Stat that measures a QB's fantasy efficiency through the air) and continues to dominate on the ground. The new era of mobile QBs is here and Jackson is a godfather.
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.Lamar Jackson was never going to duplicate his 2019 season, he did well to finish 2020 with 341.78 fantasy points in 15 games or 22.79 fantasy points per game. He should be an elite fantasy QB again in 2021.
