Josh Allen took a massive jump forward in 2019, giving Bills fans plenty of reasons to take flying leaps through card tables with a very good - if inconsistent - second season. This despite still lacking a real No. 1 receiver, Allen cut down on his interceptions while upping his passing touchdowns to 20 from 10 and improving his completion percentage as well. The team added Stefon Diggs to the mix and John Brown proved he has the stuff to at least be a solid No.2 receiver in the NFL. Allen still needs to work on his decision-making, and he struggled in his loss to the Houston Texans in the Wild Card round, but his legs buy him a lot of second chances and he showed enough improvement to where we feel pretty good about his potential as a low-end QB1, or a very good QB2 with upside to spare.

Bills | Josh Allen has bulked up (Sat Jun 27, 09:50 PM) - Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen added muscle to his upper body this offseason, according to his personal quarterback coach, Jordan Palmer. 'He's in crazy shape and spinning it great,' Palmer said.

Our View: Bulky quarterbacks usually aren't great passers, so Allen needs to be careful here. It's good to add strength as he's a running quarterback and will take a lot of extra punishment because of it. However, he doesn't want to get too bulky and have that interrupt his development as a passer. Allen has say-it-don't-spray-it accuracy and needs to have better pass placement all over the field. He's got a rocket arm but his deep accuracy left a lot to be desired in 2019...same goes for his short-to-intermediate accuracy. We'll see if Allen can look better as a passer, bulked up and all, in 2020.

Bills | Josh Allen struggles with deep passes (Wed Jun 24, 05:41 PM) - Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen was on target on only 31 percent of passes that traveled at least 20 yards down the field, according to Pro Football Focus. The average in the NFL was 43 percent.

Our View: Allen has poor pass placement. It's not just accuracy, it's where you put the ball and how you can lead your receivers to maximize yards after the catch. We'll see if more time and experience, plus the addition of WR Stefon Diggs, can help Allen be better when throwing deep.
