Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills
In our opinion, the best rookie quarterback to draft for your fantasy team is Josh Allen. While there are other rookie quarterbacks who are arguably better, we believe that Allen will have the best stats by the end of the 2018 season. Here are a few reasons why:
Although there are more NFL ready players such as Baker Mayfield or Sam Donald, they will have a harder time getting on the field than Josh Allen. In Cleveland, Tyrod Taylor is the starter for at least the start of the season. If things go well, he may remain the starter for at least this season. In Donald’s case, he will have competition between Teddy Bridgewater and Josh Mccown. We believe that Mccown will start for at least the first few games this year. For Josh Rosen, the situation is similar with Sam Bradford there. For Allen, the only threat for the starting position is Aj McCarron, who probably won’t win the starting job.
With the least amount of competition between the 4, Allen should have the most opportunity to play. Since he has that opportunity, he will have more time and chances to rack up stats.
While the Bills will more than likely be a run first team, they will have to pass to keep defenses on their heels. In addition, teams will have to pass because defenses will force them to do so.
