Trust = spike production for that player
Josh Allen (TRUST): Allen was an absolute demon in the season opener, just carving through the Super Bowl champs for 31.5 fantasy points. Allen was 26-of-31 for 297 yards with three touchdown passes to go along with 10 carries for 56 yards and a rushing score. The only blemish was throwing a pair of interceptions, but one was completely not his fault.
Allen now has 14 games with 30-plus fantasy points since 2020, the most in the NFL over that span.
There was mild concern that the Bills would not be as aggressive on offense or would pull back Allen running with the transition to Ken Dorsey calling plays. Neither was the case.
This week, he draws a Titans defense that was 31st in passing points allowed per attempt (0.74) in Week 1.
When these teams met a year ago, Allen was the QB1 overall that week, throwing for 353 yards and three touchdown passes.
