Buffalo Bills: 3 stats Josh Allen must improve to win MVP in 2020
Deep Ball Accuracy
One of the concerns watching Josh Allen a season ago was his inability to connect on throws over 20 yards. According to PlayerProfiler.com, Allen completed only 25% of his pass attempts over 20 yards, which ranked 33rd in the NFL.
This is clearly not a revelation to anyone, and the Buffalo Bills front office knew they needed to get their quarterback some help in this department. GM Brandon Beane was able to do that in the form of Stefon Diggs, who is third in the NFL in receiving yards on catches 20 or more yards downfield over the past three years.
By having a reliable target downfield like Stefon Diggs, it should not only help Allen in this category but also be a boost to his passing yards, which he finished 23rd in last year with 3,089 passing yards.
These are also plays that also have a higher likelihood of resulting in touchdowns, which Josh Allen threw 20 of last year and ranked 21st in the NFL.
If Josh Allen can improve his deep ball accuracy now with a weapon like Stefon Diggs, he should have a great chance of improving his passing yards and touchdowns from a season ago.
