Josh Allen Injury Update Suggests He's Viable Streaming Option in Week 5

After leaving Week 4 against the New England Patriots with a concussion, it looked like Josh Allen was in danger of missing Week 5. However, he finally cleared concussion protocol on Saturday morning, and will be starting against the Tennessee Titans come Sunday.

Now that Allen is officially back at the helm for the Buffalo Bills, he's going to be a viable streaming option in Week 5.

Entering Week 4, Allen was fantasy football's QB9 in standard-scoring leagues, having put up 59.5 fantasy points through three games played. His numbers took a hit in Week 4, as he was playing the Patriots, one of the best defenses in football, and didn't get to finish the game due to the concussion.

Even so, Allen still managed to tack on a rushing TD, his third of the season, and his legs generally make him a viable fantasy option. He's had at least five carries in each game this season, has racked up at least 20 rushing yards every game and has scored a rushing TD in three of his four starts.

It's not always pretty though, as he's thrown six interceptions to just three TDs on the year, but Allen gets the job done as a fantasy QB.

He was likely dropped in plenty of leagues due to the concussion, as now owned in just 51 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues. If you're in need of a streaming option at QB this week, Allen could be a solid option this Sunday.
