Josh Allen: Bills HC wants star QB to run less in 2022

Speaking with NFL Network’s Judy Battista at the NFL’s Annual League Meeting earlier this week, Bills’ HC Sean McDermott expressed his desire to have QB Josh Allen run less in 2022. (

Fantasy Impact:

Allen, who has finished as the overall QB1 in back to back seasons, rushed 122 times for 763 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2021. If McDermott’s vision for Allen and the Bills’ offense comes to fruition, Allen’s run as the top quarterback in fantasy may come to an end in 2022. For perspective, in 2021, 28.5% of Allen’s fantasy points came from rushing yards and touchdowns. If he were to have his rushing yards and touchdowns cut in half, he would have finished as the QB5 in 2021. Allen will still likely be taken as the first quarterback off the board in fantasy drafts in 2022, but his rushing attempts will be something to monitor early in the season and if less attempts for Allen becomes a reality then he may be a sell high candidate in dynasty leagues.
