Do y'all think it'd be workable to start Allen in a 12-team/1 QB league where most people take a backup QB, and thus you do want to come out of the draft with a set starter?
He's basically a free draft pick. I'm looking at Fantasy Football Calculator data for 12-team PPR mock drafts, and Allen averages the 157th pick, which is significantly later than even the "backup QB run" of Rivers, Big Ben, Brady, and Dak (that's more like the 130s.) That's if Allen gets drafted at all, which he apparently usually doesn't... Mahomes has been chosen in 951 drafts, but Allen in only 331.
So, if you were willing to draft Allen as your starting QB, you could literally take him last and could push up each of your other very late picks. If he can even be close to QB12 overall, it'd probably be worthwhile. It seems plausible that if he could be #1 overall for a decent stretch of time, he could manage to at least not fall too much lower than #12, even if a lot fewer things go his way. But... is it plausible?
