Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I'm not questioning Allen's ability to finish as a top-eight quarterback (where he's being drafted), because he finished as the No. 6 quarterback last year. However, his rushing touchdowns will come back down to earth. He scored nine of them in 2019, while Lamar Jackson scored seven rushing for more than double Allen's yards. The addition of Stefon Diggs won't hurt Allen's passing totals, but it's on the ground where he makes most of his marks, and I'm expecting that to regress.Ryan is the definition of consistency in fantasy football. He's not going to win you your fantasy championship, but he's the type of quarterback you can set-it-and-forget-it most of the time. There was just one quarterback who busted (less than 14 fantasy points) less often than him, and that quarterback (Lamar Jackson) is going in the top three rounds. If you want to wait until the middle rounds to snag Ryan, that's been a solid plan the last handful of years.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Ryan was having an outstanding season before he suffered an ankle injury. Even with his second-half decline, he led the league in pass completions and was fifth in passing yards. He's now got a better offensive line, another year of development from Calvin Ridley, and Todd Gurley as his running back. Even at his advanced age, if he bounces back at all from his 7.3 YPA and 4.2% touchdown rate last year, then in Dirk Koetter's system he could have a monstrous year.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Allen had only 3,089 yards passing and 20 passing touchdowns, but he also added 109 rushing attempts for 510 yards and 9 touchdowns. His running ability has him in the QB1 discussion.Ryan had 4,466 yards passing and 26 passing touchdowns in 2019. He does not have the upside of some of the younger more mobile quarterbacks, but he puts up monster passing numbers every year and is among the most durable quarterbacks in the NFL.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Allen's going to be a fantasy star again this season due to his rushing ability. He's a factor on the goal line and those rushing TDs are fantasy gold for a QB.This Falcons team is going to be airing the ball out in 2020. With that in mind, plus the weapons he has at his disposal, a top-10 fantasy finish for Ryan isn't out of the question.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
With an ADP of QB7 I just won't be drafting him often, if ever.Matt Ryan has supported 2 Top 24 PPR WRs four times in his career. Amongst active QBs, only Aaron Rodgers has more seasons of supporting 2 Top 24 WRs. @ClutchFantasy
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Josh Allen is an interesting player because even as a QB, it's not his passing stats you're going for, it's his rushing. Over the last two seasons, Allen has totaled 1,141 yards and 17 TDs on the ground. Those are incredible numbers for a QB but are they sustainable? Doubtful, I like Allen as a late-round prospect, I'm not jumping at some of the higher ADP's I've seen him at.Matt Ryan is never the guy your excited about picking but always manages to get you those 20 points you need. He's got one of the best WR's in the league in Julio Jones with a rising star behind him in Calvin Ridley. If the Falcons can get contributions from new TE Hayden Hurst, Matt Ryan could be playing in one of the best offenses he's ever had.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
I'm not that high on Josh Allen. He didn't pass for over 266 yards at all last season, he's very relient on his rushing which both comes with injury risk, his rushing isn't planned so it's not reliable and finally, he's awful at throwing the football. I don't really want to base my dynasty team's future on that, but he is also very consistent and this season he has Stefon Diggs to help him out. I'm unlikely to have many shares as the price is too high but due to his age and room for growth, he's a solid dynasty buy. In redraft, I'd be waiting longer and taking a guy with a higher floor and a higher ceiling.Matt Ryan just seems to keep churning out quality fantasy finishes and this used to make him a top fantasy option every year. Now the equation has changed as Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson have shifted the bar. Here's a reminder that Matt Ryan still offers a 20-point floor pretty much every week and should have room for more now that he's recovered from the unfortunate Week 7 injury that derailed his 2019 season and lead to less than ideal production with a real lack a TDs towards the end of the year.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
It seems like a forgone conclusion Josh Allen will be vulturing TDs from Singletary, and more specifically, Moss. What if they brought in Moss to protect Allen from those Goal line carries though? 17 rushing TDs the last 2 years have salvaged a lot of bad Josh Allen weeks for fantasy
