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.Most who watch football would say that Carr's had a decent year outside of a few bad performances, right? Well, he's yet to finish better than the QB10 in any given week. When you combine the low volume with lack of mobility, you have yourself a quarterback with a limited floor and ceiling. He essentially needs a matchup against a fast-paced team who puts a lot of points on the board, and one who allows efficiency. The Titans are tied for the second-fewest plays per game, rank 15th in points per game, and they haven't allowed much efficiency through the air, as they've allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points per pass attempt. Obviously, it's not a great time for Carr enthusiasts. He's nothing more than a low-end QB2 this week. He would get a boost if Adoree Jackson can't go (suffered knee injury in Week 13), though not likely enough to be a strong streamer.
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.
