2020 Fantasy Outlook
Undrafted out of the University of Houston back in 2018, Allen caught on with the Panthers and later beat out third-round pick Will Grier for the backup QB job in 2019. A Cam Newton injury in Week 2 thrust Allen into the starting role, where early success in some favorable matchups inspired discussion that he might be a long-term solution in Carolina. That now feels like a distant memory, after Allen imploded through November and December, ultimately finishing the season with 16 interceptions and 13 fumbles in 13 games. The Panthers then traded him to Washington for a fifth-round pick in the offseason, leaving Allen as the likely backup to 2019 first-rounder Dwayne Haskins, who also was one of the league's worst quarterbacks last season. It won't come as any shock if Allen makes starts this year, and he could benefit from reuniting with Washington offensive coordinator Scott Turner, formerly the QBs coach in Carolina.

Benefiting from odd schedule?
QBWashington Football Team
July 27, 2020
A limited offseason program combined with the cancellation of the preseason could work in Allen's favor if the Washington quarterback job is truly up for grabs, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
ANALYSIS
New coach Ron Rivera has hinted at Haskins being the starter but hasn't outright committed to it. Allen and offensive coordinator Scott Turner worked together in Carolina last season, while Haskins is in the difficult position of learning a new offense on a shortened schedule. The 2019 first-round pick should still be viewed as the favorite to start Week 1, but the possibility of Allen making it a camp battle can't be ruled out. Haskins and Allen were arguably the two worst starting QBs in the NFL last year, though Mason Rudolph and Mitchell Trubisky gave them a run for their money.

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.
