Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen

There is no question as to who the Buffalo Bills‘ quarterback will be when the 2019 season kicks off. Josh Allen has shown a lot of upside this season, and Bills fans are very excited about what he can bring moving forward.

Allen’s rookie season was nothing to brag about, but the typical rookie pains were expected going into the season. He completed just over 50 percent of his passes, but everyone knew accuracy was one of the things he struggled with when he came out of Wyoming last year.

Two aspects of Allen’s game that has Bills fans very excited is his big arm, and he has shown the ability to be a threat to run from the pocket. Durability could be a concern as he missed five weeks due to an elbow injury in the middle of the season.

Allen will now have a full NFL offseason, and the Bills will for sure go out and upgrade their roster through free agency and the draft. If Allen can continue to develop as a passer and the Bills can surround him with more talent on offense, then this Bills team can be a scary one down the road.

So right now, there is no question as to who the Bills quarterback moving forward is. If Allen progresses at a steady rate, then he has the chance to be the first quarterback to really get Bills fans excited since Jim Kelly.
