We were worried about the Bills running away with the game last week as the only reason to fade Allen, but the game remained close, and he finished with a healthy 19.2 fantasy points against the Dolphins. They were obviously a great matchup and the Eagles aren't much better. They did get Jalen Mills back last week, though it didn't stop Dak Prescott from completing 21-of-27 passes for 239 yards and one passing touchdown while rushing for another. It's no secret that the Eagles lack cornerbacks in the secondary and it's the reason they've allowed 7.93 yards per attempt and a 5.51 percent touchdown-rate through seven games. Their front seven has also been bitten by the injury bug, limiting a once feared pass-rush. We've now watched four different quarterbacks throw for at least 320 yards and multiple touchdowns against them. One of the quarterbacks who didn't was Luke Falk, so that shouldn't even count. The Eagles have also allowed five rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks over their last 20 games, which bodes well for Allen, who's now rushed for at least 21 yards in every contest, including a rushing touchdown in 3-of-6 games. The only game he's finished with less than 15.96 fantasy points was against the Patriots and everyone has struggled against them. Allen should be considered a high-floor low-end QB1 this week.
