Jackson has been dominant in his last four games and he should be an elite QB1 on the road against the Bengals 13th ranked fantasy quarterback defense.The Bills should play their players in Week 17, they need to win to secure the #2 seed, which could be the difference between playing at home or at Pittsburgh in the second round. Allen had 35 fantasy points against the Dolphins back in Week 2 and even though their defense has improved since then, Allen should be a QB1 at home.
