Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Allen has slowed down from last season on the rushing totals but still runs plenty to provide fantasy owners a safe week to week floor. This week it is even higher plus a tremendous ceiling in a home matchup against the lowly Dolphins defense. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Dolphins allow the second most points to fantasy quarterbacks, Allen should be an elite QB1 at home. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a good time for Allen to have his bye week, as his accuracy issues started creeping up again over his last two games. Returning to a week against the Dolphins, this game could serve as a confidence-builder for the entire passing game. The Bills are projected for a massive 28.0 points in this game, which is one of the highest on the slate. Through five games, the Dolphins have allowed every quarterback they've played to at least 15.6 fantasy points, including 4-of-5 quarterbacks who totaled 20-plus points. They played Lamar Jackson in Week 1, though he didn't need to run the ball at all, as he threw for 324 yards and five touchdowns on just 20 pass attempts. Oddly enough, the Dolphins allowed a rushing touchdown to both Tom Brady and Dak Prescott over the following two weeks. We know Allen has rushing upside, but the fact that the Dolphins have allowed a 9.86 percent touchdown-rate through give games is incredible. How incredible? No quarterback has topped that in a single season since way back in 1954. The 9.66 yards per attempt they're allowing is nearly a full yard more than Patrick Mahomes averaged in 2018. This is a great matchup and you don't want to miss it if Allen is available in your league. He's a rock-solid QB1 this week with a high floor.
