Buck Allen rushed five times for 37 yards in Week 17 against the Bengals.
Allen has been Baltimore's No. 3 back since Danny Woodhead returned in Week 11. He still managed to set career highs across the board and was able to make an impact on limited touches. With Danny Woodhead owed $2.5 million next year, it's possible the Ravens move forward with Allen in a pass-down role. Allen is entering a contract year in 2018. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 08:24:00 PM

Buck Allen rushed eight times for 37 yards in the Ravens' Week 16 win over the Colts.

Allen added a 10-yard catch. Sandwiched between early-down hammer Alex Collins and passing-down specialist Danny Woodhead, Allen finds himself in role purgatory, though he is involved on a weekly basis.

Buck Allen rushed 13 times for 70 yards with one reception for four yards in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Browns.

Allen had more rushing attempts than Alex Collins on the day, but had nearly all of his opportunity and production with the Ravens salting the game away in the fourth quarter. Allen will not be a fantasy option in Week 16 against the Colts.

Buck Allen rushed five times for 15 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Texans.

His touchdown was a heavily-aided 10-yard run where it took half the offensive line to shove him into the end zone. Allen added one catch for two yards. He played 15 snaps to Danny Woodhead's 22 as the pass-game back.

Buck Allen rushed seven times for 21 yards while adding seven catches for 44 yards and a touchdown on eight targets Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 9 loss to the Titans.

Allen was limited to just three first-half touches while ceding most of the ground work to Alex Collins. But Allen was much more involved with Baltimore trailing in the second half and even scored on a three-yard pass from Joe Flacco with just under nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Allen converted a fourth-and-two opportunity in the first half but was stonewalled on fourth-and-one later in the game. Despite the good game, Collins has emerged as the lead back in recent weeks, and Allen's passing-game role will likely disappear if Danny Woodhead is able to return following the bye. His fantasy value is in serious question moving forward.

Buck Allen rushed 17 times for 55 yards in the Ravens' Week 8 win over the Dolphins.

Allen "added" a two-yard reception, and committed a sloppy fumble on an exchange with Ryan Mallett. With the Ravens milking the clock with a huge lead, Allen received just two fewer touches than Alex Collins, but Collins out-gained Allen 143-57. Collins was running like a man ready to be the Ravens' feature back. Thankfully for Allen, Collins is a poor pass catcher, meaning Allen should remain featured on third downs. Nevertheless, Collins has officially passed Allen between the tackles.

Buck Allen rushed six times for 20 yards and caught 8-of-11 targets for 29 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

No member of the Ravens' offense got anything going all game, but Allen's high-volume receiving usage continues to make him as a weekly PPR factor. Albeit without much upside, Allen will remain a viable PPR flex option against the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football in Week 8.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 05:03:00 PM

Buck Allen rushed 10 times for 49 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to the Bears.

Alex Collins out-carried Allen 15 to 10, but Collins remains a full-on non-factor in the passing game, where Allen is the Ravens' go-to back. Allen's inconsistent workloads have placed him more into flex territory, however, as the Ravens refuse to commit to him as a lead back. We thought he looked quick and explosive on his carries Sunday, more so than most weeks. Allen will be a better fantasy play than Collins in Week 7 at Minnesota.

Buck Allen pounded the rock 21 times for 73 yards and a touchdown while adding four catches for 12 yards on five targets Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 5 win over the Raiders.

Terrance West went down with a calf injury on the Ravens’ opening drive, opening the door for Allen to see his biggest workload of the season. Alex Collins played a role with 12 carries but Allen remained the go-to back on passing downs and also got all of Baltimore’s goal-line work. Allen's one-yard score in the second quarter was his first rushing touchdown of the season (he had a receiving touchdown against the Browns in Week 2) and only the second of his career. He’ll be a must-start if West is unable to suit up next week against Chicago.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 09:07:00 PM

Buck Allen totaled seven yards on two carries while securing six catches for 37 yards on six targets Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 4 loss to the Steelers.

Game script actually worked in Allen’s favor this week as the Ravens were forced to throw in the second half, though obviously it didn’t amount to much in the way of fantasy significance. Before, Allen was only competing with Terrance West for backfield touches but now ex-Seahawk Alex Collins has fought his way into the mix. That makes Allen hard to trust heading into next week’s game showdown with Oakland.

Buck Allen rushed eight times for 15 yards and caught 5-of-6 targets for 13 yards in the Ravens' Week 3 loss to the Jaguars in London.

Despite reports he would get the start, Allen played behind Terrance West and had to share snaps with both West and Alex Collins early in the game. His first touch did not come until late in the second quarter, and most of his work came with the Ravens in comeback mode. Allen did have a couple chances near the goal line to save his fantasy day in the fourth quarter, but he was stuffed. Baltimore's offense looked about as bad as one can in the loss, and the three-way timeshare is a huge concern for Allen's fantasy value moving forward. He will be more of a FLEX option in standard leagues against the Steelers next week.

The Ravens are expected to start Buck Allen at running back against the Jaguars in London.

It's great news for opportunistic fantasy owners who went with Allen over Kerwynn Williams on the post-Week 1 waiver wire. Whereas Williams is essentially useless in Arizona from a fantasy standpoint, Allen is now a locked-in RB2.
Sun, Sep 24, 2017 09:12:00 AM

Buck Allen played 42-of-68 snaps Week 2 against the Browns.

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.
Mon, Sep 18, 2017 10:14:00 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.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 05:04:00 PM

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.
