PLAYER OUTLOOKS QBS

All Payer Outlooks written by Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard
Deshaun Watson

KYLE ALLEN, CAR

Kyle Allen started one whole game as a late-season replacement for Cam Newton -- and looked pretty good. He totaled three touchdowns (two passing) and didn’t have any turnovers in a win over the Saints’ backups. Allen is expected to battle for a spot on the Panthers depth chart behind Newton this summer but seems like a dark horse to get the backup gig with rookie Will Grier on the roster.

JOSH ALLEN, BUF

Josh Allen should be considered a sleeper quarterback this season, one to target with a late-round pick in all leagues. As a rookie in 2018, Allen got off to a slow start, scoring more than 20 Fantasy points just once in his first six games. He then missed four games with an elbow injury, but returned to be a standout Fantasy quarterback to close the year. In his final six games, Allen scored at least 21 Fantasy points four times, while averaging 26.0 points over that span. A big reason for his breakout was his rushing prowess, as Allen had at least 95 rushing yards in four of those games, as well as five rushing touchdowns. It’s hard to expect that kind of rushing production moving forward, but Buffalo did upgrade Allen’s receiving corps this offseason with John Brown, Cole Beasley and Tyler Kroft, as well as better players on the offensive line. Allen has the potential to finish as a top-10 Fantasy quarterback this year.

MATT BARKLEY, BUF

Matt Barkley is expected to be the No. 2 quarterback in Buffalo this season behind Josh Allen. In 2018, Barkley started one game with Allen out, and he scored 21 Fantasy points. Even if Barkley is No. 2 on the depth chart he should not be drafted in any leagues.

C.J. BEATHARD, SF

C.J. Beathard will compete with Nick Mullens to be the No. 2 quarterback in San Francisco this season now that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to return at 100 percent. In 2018, with Garoppolo out with a torn ACL, Beathard started five games, scoring at least 20 Fantasy points in three of them. Beathard was originally the first replacement for Garoppolo before suffering a hand injury prior to Week 9, and then he lost the starting job to Mullens. You’re obviously not going to draft Beathard in any leagues as long as Garoppolo is ready for Week 1, but he could turn into a quality waiver-wire addition if Garoppolo is out again for any reason. Just make sure Beathard beats out Mullens for the No. 2 job in training camp.

BLAKE BORTLES, LAR

After compiling a messy 111-to-94 touchdown-to-turnover ratio in five years with the Jaguars, Blake Bortles hopes some of Sean McVay’s magic will rub off on him with the Rams. Hey, if it worked for a bunch of coaches, why not for Bortles?! The reality is that Bortles won’t play unless Jared Goff misses significant playing time. If it happens, he’ll command one of the league’s most potent offenses and have a legit chance to become a decent Fantasy option once again. But Fantasy managers shouldn’t bank on it on Draft Day — he should only get taken late in deep two-QB leagues.

TOM BRADY, NE

It will be tough to trust Tom Brady as a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback this season after the weapons he’s lost this offseason. Rob Gronkowski retired, Josh Gordon remains suspended and Chris Hogan (Carolina) and Cordarrelle Patterson (Chicago) are gone via free agency. Brady will have to rely on Julian Edelman, James White, rookie N’Keal Harry, Phillip Dorsett, Demaryius Thomas and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, among others. Brady will still have plenty of good moments, but age (42) could be catching up to him. He closed last season with only three games of at least 20 Fantasy points in his final nine outings in the regular season. Brady is still worth drafting in most leagues, but he should only be selected with a late-round pick.
