2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Washington pass rush is going places and Allen is a big reason why, as the former Alabama star is closing in on All-Pro distinction following a sophomore season in which he produced 61 tackles and eight sacks on 777 snaps. With a little luck, Allen's snap count could be closer to 850 this year, and in that event he'd be a great bet to hit double-digit sacks. With a strong supporting cast around him, Allen will have the benefit of disrupted pockets even if he sees double-teams, so the context couldn't be much better. Read Past Outlooks

Breaks through in second season
DEWashington Redskins
January 2, 2019
Allen had 61 tackles (34 solo) and eight sacks across 779 defensive snaps during the 2018 season.
Limited to five appearances in an injury-shortened rookie season, the No. 17 overall pick from the 2017 draft bounced back strong as a 16-game starter at defensive end during his sophomore campaign. The Washington defense fell apart late in the season, but it has a nice foundation up front with Allen, DT Da'Ron Payne, DL Matt Ioannidis (hamstring) and OLB Ryan Kerrigan accounting for 33.5 of the team's 46 sacks.

The New England defense has struggled in terms of points and yards allowed, but its tendency to create turnovers should lead to a big afternoon against the hapless Bills.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Selected 17th overall in last year's draft, Allen managed just 10 tackles and one sack in five games before a foot injury ended his rookie season. He returned healthy for the offseason program and figures to have a starting job, but his role as a 3-4 end doesn't seem too conducive to piling up sacks or tackles. Washington's linebackers dominated the IDP production last year.
Allen is the Redskins' first defensive first-round selection since Ryan Kerrigan was picked in 2011, as the team looks to transform a defense that ranked fifth in total yards allowed last season. Once touted as a top-five overall pick, Allen possesses the ability to play at various spots on the line. At 291 pounds, he certainly will fill Washington's need of a run-stopper but also has proven to be a disruptive rusher when needed. The Alabama product should pay dividends for Washington in 2017 as he is pegged to be an immediate starter.
