Kyle Allen could have a ‘leg up’ given familiarity with coaching staff

Redskins Head Coach Ron Rivera told reporters on Tuesday that newly-acquired QB Kyle Allen could have a “leg-up” on incumbent QB Dwayne Haskins given his familiarity with the coaching staff and how teams are having to operate in the current league landscape due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fantasy Impact

The Redskins sent a fifth-round pick to Carolina in exchange for Allen a few weeks ago. Allen’s QB coach with the Panthers the past two seasons, Scott Turner, is now the offensive coordinator for the Redskins. Given the uncertainty that surrounds how and when the league will start up again mixed with the fact that Allen understands the offense that is going to be implemented in Washington definitely gives him an advantage over Haskins to start the season. Even if Haskins ends up beating out Allen for the starting job, Rivera has all the confidence in the world in Allen, describing him as “a guy that can be very competitive for us; that’s gonna come in and compete and push Dwayne.” Neither Allen or Haskins is recommended in 1-QB leagues, but could be fringe starters in 2-QB leagues if either of them can become the clear-cut starter on a weekly basis.

Kyle Allen expects to 'compete' for starting QB role in Washington

Kyle Allen told reporters that he believes the "expectation is to come in and compete for" the starting quarterback role in Washington.

Fantasy Impact

Washington invested a first-round pick in incumbent Dwayne Haskins just a year ago, but with a new regime will come new expectations, and Haskins didn't exactly cement his role during his rookie season. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, but neither Allen or Haskins is likely to be fantasy relevant in most league formats in 2020. Their impact will instead most likely be on the skill position players around them.

Kyle Allen traded to the Redskins

The Panthers have traded quarterback Kyle Allen to the Redskins in an exchange for a fifth round draft pick.

Fantasy Impact

The Panthers recently signed Teddy Bridgewater and PJ Walker this offseason, making Allen expendable. The 24-year-old threw for 3,332 yards with 17 touchdowns and 16 interceptions across 13 games for the Panthers last season. Allen will compete with Dwayne Haskins for the Redskins’ starting quarterback job. Whichever player emerges as the starter is merely an option in two-quarterback or super-flex league formats.

Kyle Allen re-signs with Panthers

The Panthers have re-signed quarterback Kyle Allen to a one-year contract.

Fantasy Impact

Allen will return to the Panthers as the expected backup to Cam Newton, at least for now. While Allen started 12 games in 2019 for the injured Newton, he underwhelmed after a solid start. The team could add a veteran QB via free agency or draft a rookie that would also push Allen for backup duties. Allen isn't fantasy relevant at this point given his lack of a clear starting role entering the new season.

Kyle Allen throws for 295 yards in Week 17

Panthers QB Kyle Allen completed 25-of-41 passes for 295 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

After Will Grier exited the game with a foot injury following one completion to his team and one completion to the opponent -- a pick obviously -- Allen came in and threw for 295 scoreless yards. While he was able to move the offense, Allen seems to be a quarterback who must play with a lead as he makes poor decisions trailing by multiple scores. The Panthers are surely in the quarterback market this offseason barring an unexpected retaining of Cam Newton.
