Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen took a leap in 2020, ascending to MVP contender status during a true breakout year. He heads into this season with room to get even better, making him a nightmare matchup for opposing defenses.

Allen's fantasy outlooking includes the potential to be the top QB again this year.

Josh Allen Fantasy Outlook

Allen rose to the very top in fantasy last year, ranking as QB1 and the top player overall in PPR scoring. Expectations are similarly high this season. He's currently being drafted as the QB2 (No. 26 overall), according to FantasyPros' average draft position data.

It was a truly monster year for Allen in 2020. He set career highs in completions (396), passing yards (4,544) and passing TDs (37). He also continued to be a dual threat under center, recording 421 yards and 8 scores on the ground.

Allen is in prime position to repeat as one of fantasy football's very best. He'll be joined again by top wideouts Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley as the Bills eye a Super Bowl. Diggs led the league in receptions (127) and receiving yards (1,535) in his first season with Buffalo, and his connection with Allen should only get stronger heading into this year.

That's not even to mention the offseason addition of Emmanuel Sanders, who's recorded at least 700 yards in every season since 2013. New tight end arrival Jacob Hollister also bolsters a tight end corps headline by breakout candidate Dawson Knox.

Allen's record-breaking extension may lead the Bills to limit their QB's rushing attempts this season, but he should make up for any losses there with even better passing numbers in 2021. His passing attempts have increased every year since he entered the league, and the Bills' receiving additions this offseason prove they're doubling down in that area.
