Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
It might not always be pretty, but outside of the game against the Patriots, where every non L-Jax quarterback has struggled, Allen has been a reliable fantasy option week in and week out. His low is just 17 fantasy points and even in tough matchups the past two weeks against Denver and Dallas, he has managed 20 and 24 fantasy points. Although he gets the Ravens this week, he'll be at home and you can bank on him running for 40+ yards which is the same in fantasy as a free passing touchdown. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After posting 23.5 fantasy points against the Cowboys, Allen has now scored 17.2 or more fantasy points on 10 different occasions this year. The only other quarterbacks who can say they've done it more than eight times are Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott. He's on fire but will face his toughest test of the season when the Ravens come to town. They've been potentially the toughest matchup in football for quarterbacks since Week 4. Over their last eight games, they've allowed just five passing touchdowns while intercepting seven passes. They've also held quarterbacks in check on the ground, as none have rushed for more than 27 yards all season. The 17.4 fantasy points they've allowed on the ground to quarterbacks ranks in the bottom-five, and Allen doesn't get very many designed runs, so this could be problematic. We haven't seen a quarterback finish better than the QB13 against them since back in Week 3 and that was against Patrick Mahomes, who kind of does that to everyone. Even the mobile Russell Wilson was held to just 241 passing yards, 27 rushing yards, and one touchdown against them. Allen should still present a semi-decent floor with his legs, but he's nothing more than a middling QB2 for this matchup with a very limited ceiling.Don't hold a bad game against the Steelers against them, as they've been one of the toughest matchups in football since acquiring Minkah Fitzpatrick. The Bengals on the other hand, are not. The only two quarterbacks who've finished with less than 16.3 fantasy points against them were the last two who played them, Sam Darnold and Devlin Hodges/Mason Rudolph. The issue for expecting too big of a performance out of a quarterback playing the Bengals has been limitations on his pass attempts. There has been just one quarterback all season who's totaled more than 36 pass attempts, and that was Darnold last week, who was just the second quarterback to average less than 7.2 yards per attempt against them all season. Mayfield himself has cleared that number just four times all season, though his last cake matchup was one he took full advantage of, throwing for 327 yards and three touchdowns against the Dolphins. The Bengals have allowed an average of 90.7 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks/running backs/wide receivers/tight ends, which ranks as the 12th-most, and might surprise some people. It's not quite the matchup with the Dolphins, who have allowed 100.8 points per game. This matchup should net a middling QB2 floor with a top-10-type ceiling for Mayfield, as the run-game should go bananas, limiting his upside.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Allen does go against the 4th ranked Ravens fantasy QB D, but he has also been on a tear in recent weeks. He is a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 at home in a tough matchup.
