Terrance West was limited to just 15. Allen also out-touched West 19-to-10 and looked like the better player against Cleveland. Looking like the back of choice, Allen will be in the RB2 conversation against the Jaguars in London. Sep 18 - 10:14 AM

Buck Allen rushed 14 times for 66 yards and caught 5-of-6 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 2 win over the Browns.

Terrance West managed 10 touches and was severely outplayed by Allen, whose passing-game ability adds more diversity to Baltimore's offense. Allen nearly had two touchdowns, but he was tackled inside the five-yard line at the end of a 37-yard burst. Allen's six targets ranked second on the team behind Ben Watson. Allen will remain a viable RB2/flex option in Week 2 at Jacksonville.

Buck Allen played 33-of-66 snaps in the Ravens' Week 1 win over the Bengals.

Nominal starter Terrance West played just 27. Allen also saw two more carries than West in the blowout. Perhaps the nature of the scoreline had something to do with the workload split, but it seems clear Allen will have a big role with Danny Woodhead sidelined. Allen is one of the top pickups this week.
Sep 11 - 9:33 AM

Buck Allen broke off 71 yards on 21 carries Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 1 win over the Bengals.

He came up empty on his lone target. Allen subbed in after Danny Woodhead was carted off with a hamstring injury on the Ravens’ opening drive. Baltimore jumped out to a big lead thanks to a barrage of Andy Dalton turnovers and were able to burn clock by going to their ground game in the second half. Sixteen of Allen’s 21 carries came after halftime. Depending on Woodhead’s health, Allen could be worth a speculative add heading into next week’s home opener against the Browns.
Sep 10 - 5:13 PM

Buck Allen rushed 12 times for 25 yards in the Ravens' third preseason game, adding a three-yard reception.

Allen spent time with the first-team offense, though like everyone else, he didn't show anything. It was hard with Ryan Mallett leading the attack. Allen has gotten extensive run this summer, rushing 30 times for 86 yards (2.86 YPC). West has generated some camp buzz, but those numbers are not going to put pressure on Terrance West.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec believes Buck Allen "has been the Ravens’ most effective back."

Early in camp, Zrebiec reported Allen was showing well, and he has continued that into the preseason, gaining 61 yards on 18 carries and catching six passes for 27 yards for an offense which has struggled to get anything going. Allen even got run with the first-team in the second preseason game. He looks locked into a roster spot, and he could push Danny Woodhead and Terrance West for touches.
Aug 22 - 9:58 AM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec wrote Ravens RB Buck Allen is "having a really nice camp."

On the roster bubble after spending the second half of last season as a healthy scratch, Allen needed to strong start to camp, and it sounds like he has met the challenge. With Kenneth Dixon (knee) out for the season, Allen could carve out a roster spot behind Danny Woodhead and Terrance West.
Aug 3 - 11:03 AM

The Ravens want third-year RB Buck Allen to be more decisive when running the ball.

Allen appeared in all 16 games as a 2015 rookie and ran 137 times for 514 yards (3.8 YPC) and one score. Last season, however, Allen made just eight appearances with nine carries and was a healthy scratch much of the second half of the year. With the addition of Danny Woodhead, Allen's roster spot could be in jeopardy, especially once Kenneth Dixon's four-game suspension ends.
May 26 - 8:47 AM

Ravens declared RB Buck Allen, LB Kamalei Correa, TE Crockett Gillmore, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, OL Ryan Jensen, G Alex Lewis and RB Lorenzo Taliaferro inactive for Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Allen missed the last two practices this week while dealing with a personal matter. Kamar Aiken (thigh) and Jimmy Smith (back) are both active for Baltimore.

Buck Allen managed 18 yards on four carries and no gain on his lone reception in the Ravens' Week 5 loss to Washington.

Allen's touch totals since coming off the game-day inactives list two games ago are 5 and 5. He essentially rotated backup duties in this one with Kenneth Dixon, who played with a knee brace and was even less effective. Until further notice, Terrance West will be the Ravens' lead back moving forward.

Buck Allen rushed three times for 13 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 15 yards in the Ravens' Week 4 loss to the Raiders.

Allen was the No. 2 back this week behind Terrance West with Justin Forsett inactive. That could change if Kenneth Dixon (knee) returns in Week 5. Allen does have some appeal in deeper PPR leagues, but he would probably need an injury to West to become genuinely usable in fantasy.

Ravens declared RB Buck Allen, CB Will Davis, RB Kenneth Dixon, OLB Elvis Dumervil, DT Willie Henry, CB Jerraud Powers and G/C John Urschel inactive for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Allen has been a healthy scratch for all three games this season. Justin Forsett and Terrance West will continue to split up the rushing workload. Neither are appealing fantasy options. Ronnie Stanley (foot) is active for Week 3.

Ravens declared RB Buck Allen, CB Jerraud Powers, RB Kenneth Dixon, CB Will Davis, OLB Elvis Dumervil, OG John Urschel, and DT Willie Henry inactive for Week 2 against the Browns.

Allen has been a healthy scratch each of the first two weeks, even with rookie Dixon (knee) still sidelined and not playing. Dumervil has an ankle injury.
Sun, Sep 18, 2016 11:35:00 AM

Ravens declared RB Buck Allen, G John Urschel, LB Elvis Dumervil, RB Kenneth Dixon, CB Jerraud Powers, CB Will Davis and DT Willie Henry inactive for Week 1 against the Bills.

Dixon was expected to be out with a knee injury, but Allen was not on the injury report and was expected to play a role behind Justin Forsett and Terrance West. With Allen down, the Forsett and West are suddenly more interesting FLEX plays. Forsett should handle all of the passing-down work, and West is locked in to a short-yardage role.

Buck Allen had eight carries for 15 yards in Baltimore's third preseason game.

He added four catches for 17 yards. Allen was the No. 4 back through the rotation. He worked with the backups, suggesting Terrance West has passed him on the depth chart. Allen has 71 total yards and a touchdown through three preseason games.
