QB - CIN
This Week Outlook
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Brandon Allen completed 15-of-29 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown in a 21-16 loss to the Browns in Week 18.
Allen got the spot start with Joe Burrow ruled out earlier in the week to rest his knee. Allen predictably struggled without Tee Higgins and Joe Mixon. Look for Allen to return to his normal reserve role when the playoffs kick off next week.
Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen has been re-signed to a one-year deal with his current team, as reported by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Allen earned five starts in 2020 following Joe Burrow's ACL tear, throwing for 925 yards and five touchdowns with a 1-4 record in that span. He will continue to play a back-up role to Burrow in Cincinnati but is familiar with the system ran by head coach Zac Taylor. Therefore, Allen provides insurance and experience should the Bengals fail to improve their bottom-tier offensive line this offseason.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Brandon Allen completed 6-of-21 passes for 48 yards and two interceptions in a 38-3 loss to the Ravens in Week 17.
It was a brutal day for the Cincinnati offense, which managed just 195 yards. Allen had a few moments while filling in for the injured Joe Burrow but he will return to a backup role next season.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Brandon Allen completed 29-of-37 passes for 371 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-31 win over the Texans in Week 16.
Allen came back strong after missing Week 15 with a knee injury. He threw touchdowns to Tee Higgins and Drew Sample. The Bengals have a tough matchup against the Ravens to finish up the 2020 season.
Bengals QB Brandon Allen (knee) won't play in Week 15 against the Steelers.
Allen left Sunday's Week 14 game early due to a knee injury. He hasn't practice this week and will be replaced in the lineup by third-string QB Ryan Finley. Fantasy managers should avoid Cincinnati players if at all possible this weekend.
