Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Allen has somehow convinced owners that he is safe all of a sudden. He has had three good weeks in a row, but before then, he was awful. There is a chance he posts another big week, but this is by no means a safe play versus a Lions defense that contains rushing QBs as well as anyone. 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Allen has rushed for at least 99 yards in three straight games, which has led him to finish as the overall QB2, QB3, and QB6 the last three weeks. That production is hard to ignore, but so is the fact that most of that yardage has come on scrambles rather than designed runs, which makes it harder to bank on. Allen also faces off this week with a Lions defense that allows the fewest rushing yards to quarterbacks -- they've even held mobile QBs like Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson, Mitchell Trubisky and Cam Newton to under 20 rushing yards. There are a lot of unknowns here, so Allen is a high-risk, high-reward streaming option. He could single-handedly win you a playoff matchup, but he could also single-handedly lose it. 
Scott Engel
RotoExperts
Both dynamic and reckless, but deserves starting consideration 
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Let's be honest, your season is already over if you're counting on Rosen. Week 14's 240 passing yards represented his highest clip since Week 8. He has gone the last two games without a touchdown, giving him 10 in 11 games with 6.1 yards per pass attempt. Atlanta has allowed an NFL-high 22.1 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, but no matchup can make the Arizona rookie a viable option.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He now has 321 rushing yards over the last three games, which has broken the NFL record for quarterback rushing yards over a three-game stretch that was formerly held by Michael Vick (294 yards). Despite throwing just three touchdowns to four interceptions over the last three weeks, he's been the No. 2 fantasy quarterback in that time behind only Patrick Mahomes. It'll be interesting to see how his act goes against the Lions who've yet to allow a quarterback to rush for more than 18 yards. The 62 rushing yards they've allowed to quarterbacks ranks as the fewest in the NFL, while there's just one other team who's allowed less than 137 yards (Broncos - 91). Keep in mind they played against Mitch Trubisky, Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, and Dak Prescott this year. The Lions secondary has been vulnerable through the season, though they've stepped-up over the last two weeks, holding Jared Goff to just 207 yards and one touchdown, and then Josh Rosen to 240 yards and no touchdowns. While you'll likely laugh about Rosen, remember that Allen is a much worse passer than him with even fewer weapons to throw to. Some will want to start Allen based on the last three weeks, but this isn't a matchup that suits his strengths (the Jets were) which ultimately makes him a middling QB2 who presents an embarrassingly low floor if he can't get anything going on the ground.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Allen is averaging an astounding 24.4 fantasy points over his last 3 games and he is in the QB1 conversation against a Lions team that is 11th against fantasy quarterbacks.
