NFL Red Zone Report: Week 1
Matt Selz breaks down red zone performances and stats from across the NFL.
Now that Week 1 is in the books and we saw some pretty impressive offensive displays, it’s time to see who’s getting those all important Red Zone targets and attempts. As was detailed in a few pieces in the draft guide, these chances are important for fantasy football as it’s a touchdown dependent sport for the most part to win and so getting shots inside the 20 is where most of the touchdowns come from during the course of games.
Josh Allen QB BUF - It was a career day for Allen with 312 passing yards but it was also a great day for him managing the red zone offense. He had 14 passing attempts inside the 20 with six alone inside the 10 and he completed at least half of them for two passing touchdowns. That also didn’t include his rushing two rushing attempts and a rushing touchdown. We’ve seen him run the ball into the endzone plenty of time before but the improved passing game was quite notable as that’s been a problem for him in the past.
