3.) Josh Allen leads the Bills in rushing yards

It seems like this is a continued story within Allen’s career with the Bills. While the Bills cannot keep Allen as the main running game in Buffalo, he does provide value on the ground when he stands at 6 '5 and 240lbs.

Even though the Bills do have a legit running back committee in Cook, Damien Harris and Latavius Murray, the offense overall flows when Allen is at his best. Offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey will still find a way to make Allen a threat on the ground, much less in the air. 

Even if Allen does end up running some QB-option type of plays, the biggest factor is not letting him try to push the pile when the Bills are in the red zone. Last season, they had trouble getting into the endzone when they were so close and it was because of a lack of a big back. Now they have that in Harris in Murray.
