Brandon Allen represents one of the steepest drop-offs to a backup quarterback for fantasy purposes. He is a career 56% passer with 6.6 intended air yards per attempt in his only significant playing time after Burrow's injury in 2020, representing a 12% drop from Burrow's completions and 1.5 yards shorter than Burrow's throw depth. The offense has typically functioned as a low percentage dink and dunk attack when Allen takes over. Coupled with 4.6 average rush yards per game as a starter, Allen struggles to see utility even in deep Superflex formats.
