2020 Fantasy Outlook
Undrafted out of the University of Houston back in 2018, Allen caught on with the Panthers and later beat out third-round pick Will Grier for the backup QB job in 2019. A Cam Newton injury in Week 2 thrust Allen into the starting role, where early success in some favorable matchups inspired discussion that he might be a long-term solution in Carolina. That now feels like a distant memory, after Allen imploded through November and December, ultimately finishing the season with 16 interceptions and 13 fumbles in 13 games. The Panthers then traded him to Washington for a fifth-round pick in the offseason, leaving Allen as the likely backup to 2019 first-rounder Dwayne Haskins, who also was one of the league's worst quarterbacks last season. It won't come as any shock if Allen makes starts this year, and he could benefit from reuniting with Washington offensive coordinator Scott Turner, formerly the QBs coach in Carolina.

The Panthers are trading Allen to Washington, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
The Panthers reached an agreement with P.J. Walker earlier Monday, adding another body to a crowded QB room. Allen will now be reunited with Washington head coach Ron Rivera, who held the same role in Carolina from 2011 to mid-2019. With Dwayne Haskins unproven and Alex Smith (leg) uncertain to play football again, Allen is pretty much in the best situation he could've hoped for, though it doesn't mean he'll be handed a roster spot. The 24-year-old was one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the NFL last season, accounting for 46 sacks, 16 interceptions and 13 fumbles in 13 games. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Panthers will receive a fifth-round draft pick in the trade.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Promoted late last season to serve as Carolina's backup quarterback, Allen made two appearances, including a Week 17 start. In that outing, he led the Panthers to victory while totaling over 240 yards and three touchdowns. Despite that finish, Allen faces an uphill battle to make the team again this season, as rookie Will Grier was drafted in the third round to be Cam Newton's long-term understudy. If Carolina decides to keep three quarterbacks around, though, Allen could remain on the 53-man roster by impressing during the preseason.
