Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
Allen proved to be a bargain in 2018 superflex rookie drafts. As a passer, he didn’t exceed his low expectations. His completion rate (53 percent) was lowest among passers with at least 200 attempts, while his yards per attempt (6.5) and interception rate (3.8 percent) were each second-worst (behind Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick, respectively).
But Allen did more damage on the ground than most dynasty owners expected. He was no Lamar Jackson … but he was close. Looking only at each quarterback’s starting performances, the two were almost neck-and-neck:
Allen’s January DLF (1QB) ADP was 146, making him the 15th quarterback drafted. Compared to Jackson (ADP 102, QB9), that’s a bargain. Still, I’m probably avoiding both at current prices — which are only likely to rise this off-season.
