The Buffalo Bills are hardly putting fullback Patrick DiMarco on the field on offense. His high-water mark so far this season came against the Minnesota Vikings when he logged 12 offensive snaps. All told www.billsauthorizedshops.com , he’s seen the field a mere 25 times through four games. Let’s review 40% of his playing time and see what the Bills have been up to at the fullback position.Play 1Here Patrick DiMarco is doing some typical fullback work. DiMarco and LeSean McCoy go to opposite sides of Nathan Peterman. As DiMarco sets up one lane, Vlad Ducasse pulls to make another. Shady has to quickly choose which lane to go with after the play starts. He chose...poorly. McCoy tries to cut back but it’s too late and actually collides with DiMarco. This was his entire game on offense against the Ravens.Play 2As you’ll see, the Bills haven’t been shy about letting DiMarco run a route from the fullback spot. Quite often he finds a soft spot. This is however the only time a quarterback has decided to actually throw it to him. Josh Allen and DiMarco are out of sync. DiMarco looks inside for the ball and has to come back and make a diving grab to the outside. There’s almost zero yards-after-catch as a result. Play 3Near the end zones the Bills are more likely to bring DiMarco in, whether it’s scoring position or backed up on the wrong side of the field. DiMarco is likely looking to block in case Allen decides to scramble on this play. He does look back in good position to make a catch however. A flick of the wrist and this might have been a touchdown (don’t worry, see the next play). Play 4DiMarco was made the second-highest paid fullback in the league by Buffalo for a reason. He’s a good fullback. The ability to stop his man at the line clears just enough room for Chris Ivory to punch the ball in for a touchdown. DiMarco has been used often in short yardage situations. If there’s a Josh Allen quarterback sneak, there’ll be DiMarco—slamming into Allen to push him forward a bit more. The Bills haven’t had much in the way of short-yardage situations so far this year and it’s likely DiMarco sees more playing time if the Bills start seeing more third-and-short. Play 5There’s been a few of these too. DiMarco isn’t a downgrade at the receiver position, but arguably he may have been more effective blocking this running play from the fullback spot. Play 6There haven’t been too many plays where Patrick DiMarco has been asked to help in pass protection. This snap and another chip or two and one actual blocking assignment have been it. DiMarco hasn’t been the only back mostly absent from this role either. The Bills have been reluctant to have any of their backs help Josh Allen out by blocking. Play 7It’s unfortunate that Allen can’t get the ball to the wide open DiMarco on this play as there’s a decent chance to move the sticks. This play was set up well by Brian Daboll. They used a similar formation including motion from DiMarco twice earlier in this game against the Vikings. The first time was a lead block for Ivory on a running play. The second was right before this play on what also appeared to be a run (Allen fumbled so we’ll never know for sure). DiMarco sells the block as if it’s the same play call. The defense bites and he’s wide open. Play 8Despite DiMarco’s above average speed and agility for a fullback he’s been rarely used to block to the outside. He does his job well Buffalo Bills Womens T-Shirt , and perhaps some more of this could help jump-start the Bills’ offense. Play 9There’s a lot to like about Patrick DiMarco but he’s hardly perfect. He doesn’t get enough of the block and the lane he’s there to clear shuts fast (though it’s not completely his fault). Play 10As they say, “always end on a high note.” DiMarco’s low snap counts don’t seem to be the result of poor play. His success here leads to a few more yards.The time to add Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen in fantasy football is now Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen was impressive on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. He completed 15-of-22 passes (68%) for 196 yards and 1 touchdown. He added 10 rushing attempts for 39 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Bills went to Minnesota and dismantled a team that has Super Bowl aspirations.With all of the positives, it’s clear that Allen’s future is bright in Buffalo. Does that mean you should buy in and add him to your fantasy football roster?In short, yes. Yes you should.Allen scored 27.74 fantasy points last week in a game where his offense had essentially shut it down after halftime. He has proven that he will be able to earn points with his arm as well as his legs. His total last week was good for fifth among all quarterbacks in Week three. He is also the Bills’ leading fantasy point scorer on the year, totaling 48.3 points so far. That leaves him twentieth among quarterbacks in fantasy scoring.While being twentieth isn’t much to brag about, the percentage of leagues with Allen on the roster doesn’t match his overall performance. Allen is available in 97% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues. Here is a list of quarterbacks who are current starters for their team, have fewer points than Allen Buffalo Bills Hats , and are rostered at a higher percentage than Allen is:Andrew Luck (47.68 points; 86% rostered)Tom Brady (47.16 points; 100% rostered)Case Keenum (44.3 points; 27% rostered)Eli Manning (41.5 points; 18% rostered)Derek Carr (40.34 points; 38% rostered)Mitchell Trubisky (37.04 points; 15% rostered)Sam Darnold (35.04 points; 10% rostered)Dak Prescott (34.42 points; 45% rostered)Note that I’ve intentionally left off two quarterbacks who have missed time due to injury (Marcus Mariota and Carson Wentz) who both appear on a greater percentages of rosters than Allen currently does. Also note that all of those quarterbacks have played three whole games, whereas Allen did not play for the first 40 minutes of the season opener against the Baltimore Ravens.Should you drop Tom Brady and pick up Allen? Absolutely not. Is Allen going to finish the year as a top-five quarterback in fantasy scoring? Probably not. Is Allen a better option than quite a few players who are on more fantasy roster than he is currently? Absolutely.There are three teams changing quarterbacks right now, so the waiver wire will be hot for quarterbacks this week. The Arizona Cardinals are moving on from Sam Bradford, electing to start their own first-round draft choice, Josh Rosen. The Cleveland Browns are benching Tyrod Taylor for Baker Mayfield, the number one overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The San Francisco 49ers just lost Jimmy Garoppolo to an ACL tear, meaning that C.J. Beathard will start for the foreseeable future.The fourth week of the season also means that bye weeks are coming. Only two teams (the Washington Redskins and the Carolina Panthers) are off this week Buffalo Bills Womens Hoodie , but that means that Cam Newton and Alex Smith need to be replaced, if only temporarily. As far as bye week replacements go, Allen’s ceiling is definitely worth the risk.There will be growing pains with Allen, just as there will be with any rookie quarterback. After all, Allen was considered to be one of the most raw of the quarterback prospects coming out of college this year. There may be a dud here or there, especially given the dearth of solid receiving weapons on Buffalo’s roster. He did just put up a 28-point performance, however Womens Customized Buffalo Bills Jerseys , with a supporting cast of Chris Ivory, Zay Jones, Kelvin Benjamin (who has just been dreadful so far), Andre Holmes, Charles Clay, and Jason Croom. On Sunday, Allen elevated his supporting cast. There’s no reason why he can’t do it again.If your league is a two-quarterback league or one in which a superflex position is used www.billscheapshop.com , then Allen is not only a must-add, but a must-start. If your league is more traditional, there is still no need to wait. The time is now to add Buffalo’s rookie quarterback.
