2019 Fantasy Outlook
Promoted late last season to serve as Carolina's backup quarterback, Allen made two appearances, including a Week 17 start. In that outing, he led the Panthers to victory while totaling over 240 yards and three touchdowns. Despite that finish, Allen faces an uphill battle to make the team again this season, as rookie Will Grier was drafted in the third round to be Cam Newton's long-term understudy. If Carolina decides to keep three quarterbacks around, though, Allen could remain on the 53-man roster by impressing during the preseason. Read Past Outlooks

Steps in for injured Grier
QBCarolina Panthers
December 29, 2019
Allen completed 25 of 41 pass attempts for 295 yards and threw one interception during Sunday's 42-10 loss to New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
With rookie signal-caller Will Grier sustaining a foot injury during the second quarter of Sunday's blowout defeat, Allen made his 13th appearance of 2019. The 23-year-old Allen enjoyed a promising start to his sophomore season by establishing a 7:0 TD:INT between Weeks 3 and 6, while leading his team to a 4-0 record during that span. From that point forward, however, Allen struggled mightily with ball security, tossing 10 touchdowns and 16 interceptions as Carolina limped to a final record of 5-11. Cam Newton's (foot) future with the Panthers remains tentative for the time being, but Allen provides Carolina with an affordable backup QB option as the franchise searches for a long-term answer at the position.
