Only rushed 3 times (2 designed, 1 scramble) for 7 yards on Sunday, which led me to question… should we buy the dip at a number he’s cleared at a 60% rate this season? And 56% since last season?
Considering Buffalo is heavily favored while the Lions are allowing the most rushing yards per game to QBs this year, I’ll venture to say the answer is a hard yes!
Detroit’s tightened up defensively lately but are still vulnerable vs. mobile QBs. The Giants failed to capitalize, but Daniel Jones sliced them up for 8.6 yards per carry on designed run plays alone last Sunday.
While Buffalo only called 3 designed runs in the last 2 weeks for Allen, is this not the perfect matchup to break them back out? Layer on the possibility for scramble yards… and it’s like Turkey day gravy on a well-seasoned bet.
