WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

The Giants signed Javorius Allen.

Allen has been a free agent this season, but he's shown he can be a productive player and will have a chance to stick around as New York's No. 3 back behind Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman. If he ends up drawing the start in Week 7, Allen would be a FLEX option.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

The Saints placed Javorius Allen on injured reserve.

It’s unclear what Allen is dealing with, but there’s a chance he’s released so he can sign elsewhere if healthy. The former Raven doesn’t need to be held in dynasty leagues right now.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

The Saints have signed Javorius Allen, according to Field Yates.

Allen caught 129 passes in Baltimore over the past four seasons, and he will look to crack New Orleans' roster as pass-catching depth behind Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray. The USC product will turn 28 at the end of August.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen handles just one touch in win over the Raiders.

It was a two-yard carry, as Gus Edwards (23 touches for 118 yards) and Ty Montgomery (11 touches for 64 yards) led the backfield in Lamar Jackson's second start. Allen has played well when given the opportunity, but he can be dropped in all redraft formats.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen handles one touch in win over the Ravens.

It was a two-yard carry, and he wasn't targeted in the passing game. Allen isn't a recommended fantasy option, especially with Lamar Jackson under center and Ty Montgomery slowly getting more involved.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen bottled up in loss to the Steelers.

Allen rushed once for six yards and caught five-of-five targets for just eight yards. Baltimore probably needs more from their running backs after the bye week if they want to turn their season around, so look for Ty Montgomery to get involved in Week 11, which will threaten Allen's role more than anyone else.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen scores in loss to the Panthers.

Allen caught three passes for 18 yards, including a nine-yard touchdown in the second half, but he didn't record a carry. The USC product is on pace for 60 receptions and ten total touchdowns this season, but his 288 total yards through eight games keeps him as a limited-upside FLEX option heading into a matchup against the Steelers.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen handles six touches in loss to the Saints.

Allen rushed three times for three yards, also adding three receptions for 21 yards. The USC product has combined for just ten touches over the past two weeks after it looked like the backfield might have been turning in his favor, so Allen is nothing more than a decent FLEX play in Week 8 against the Panthers.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen gets four touches against the Titans.

Allen carried once for one yard and added three receptions for 18 yards in the Week 6 win. The workload was a bit of a surprise, especially while considering undrafted rookie Gus Edwards had ten carries in his NFL debut. Allen is only a recommended FLEX option in PPR leagues for now, and we'll see how the backfield situation looks next week against the Saints.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen gets 14 touches against the Browns.

Allen carried eight times for 34 yards and added six receptions (on eight targets) for 44 yards in the Week 5 loss, and he did also lose a costly fumble in the game. Allen remains in an even backfield split with Alex Collins, and the lost fumble should do much to impact that split, as Collins as had fumbling issues of his own this season. Allen is a stronger PPR option than standard-league option when he faces the Titans next week.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen gets 12 touches against the Steelers.

Allen again mixed in the backfield with Alex Collins, rushing ten times for 30 yards along with two receptions (on two targets) for 17 yards. Collins was in the game for a play-action pass to the flat for a score, but the workload was split right down the middle in the game. Through four games, Allen is on pace for 104 carries, 248 rushing yards, 12 rushing touchdowns, 60 receptions, 348 receiving yards, and four receiving touchdowns.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen scores twice against the Broncos.

Allen was again a very good red-zone option for Baltimore, getting the ball into the end zone twice in the Week 3 win. Allen had six carries for seven yards and a touchdown along with three receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown. Obviously, the touchdowns made it a productive fantasy day for Allen, but the coaches trust him deep in the red zone. Allen is in the FLEX conversation for Week 4 against Pittsburgh.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen converts goal-line carry against the Bengals.

Allen again received a nice workload splitting work with Alex Collins (12 touches) in Baltimore's backfield, carrying six times for eight rushing yards and a rushing touchdown while adding five receptions (on seven targets) for 36 receiving yards. The first goal-line carry for the Ravens went to Allen, who converted to help deliver a solid fantasy outing. Collins did also perform well as a receiver, so some work could be taken away there. Right now, this is a pretty evenly split backfield, so they both have fantasy value. Consider Allen a FLEX option in PPR leagues for Week 3 against the Broncos.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen scores in Ravens' win.

Allen carried four times for 17 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown while adding five receptions for 15 receiving yards against the Bills. Allen has a solid role in Baltimore's backfield, and there's a chance he gets a crack at more touches after Alex Collins' fumble. He's more of a PPR FLEX at the moment, though.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen gets five carries in Week 17.

Allen ran well against the Bengals, gaining 37 yards on his five attempts. On the season, Allen had 153 carries for 591 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns along with 46 receptions for 250 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns. He filled in very well for Danny Woodhead, who missed most of the early season after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 1, and Allen also ran well in the red zone for the Ravens and was seemingly the preferred runner there. Expect Allen to be back in the backfield with Alex Collins and Woodhead in 2018.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen handles nine touches in win over the Colts.

Allen rushes eight times for 37 and caught a 10-yard pass. Balitmore’s backup running back converted a short-yardage attempt early on as a fullback, and he was more efficient than Alex Collins for the second week in a row. However, Collins doubled up his touches and remains the safer fantasy bet in Week 17 as the Ravens look to lock up a playoff spot.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen leads backfield in win over the Browns.

Allen rushed a team-high 13 times for 70 yards, also adding a four-yard reception. While starter Alex Collins struggled to find running room, Allen did a nice job as his change-of-pace, but the backfield order shouldn't change in Week 16. Keep the USC product on the bench or waiver wire against the Colts on Saturday.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen scores twice against the Steelers.

Allen ran well while mixing in with Alex Collins and Danny Woodhead against Pittsburgh, and he benefited from more work in the red zone. He had six carries for 25 yards and two touchdowns along with two receptions for 32 yards in the loss. While it’s difficult to trust someone that’s the second or third option in the backfield, Allen does have some scoring upside next week against Cleveland.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen rushed seven times for 22 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.

He also caught a four-yard pass. Allen remains involved for Baltimore, but Alex Collins dominated with 15 carries for 75 yards and two touchdowns in Week 13. With Danny Woodhead also involved, Allen doesn't need to be rostered as the fantasy playoffs begin.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen scores in Week 12.

Allen carried five times for 15 yards and a touchdown while adding two-yard reception in the Monday night victory against the Texans. The touchdown was on a ten-yard carry where he kept fighting after contact and was eventually pushed into the end zone by his offensive linemen in a scrum near the goal line. Despite his ability, Allen isn't a recommended fantasy option with both Alex Collins and Danny Woodhead in the mix in Baltimore's backfield, but it's good to see him contribute with his opportunities.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen handles four touches in Week 11 win.

Allen rushed three times for eight yards and caught a nine-yard pass. Danny Woodhead's return to the lineup drains almost all of Allen's fantasy value for the rest of the season, so he can be dropped in all leagues. The Ravens play the Texans next week on Monday Night Football.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen scores in Week 9.

Allen carried seven times for 21 yards and added seven receptions (on eight targets) for 44 yards and a touchdown versus Tennessee. The touchdown was a short one on a pass to the flat out of the backfield, and it's good to see him remain so involved in the passing game. However, Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is set to return in Week 11 after the team's bye week, so the role of Allen is up in the air. He'll almost certainly still be contributing to the Ravens, but Woodhead might take a lot of his work immediately.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen gets 18 touches in Week 7 victory.

The Ravens dominated in their win against the Dolphins, and they ran the ball a ton when Joe Flacco left the game with a concussion. Alex Collins played great and worked as the starter in the backfield, but Allen again received about the same amount of work as him, carrying 17 times for 55 yards and catching one pass for two yards—but he did also fumble on a carry around the goal lien that was recovered by the Ravens for a touchdown. Up the entire game, the Ravens didn't need to run many pass plays and target Allen in this one. He'll be a FLEX option next week against Oakland.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen gets 14 touches against the Vikings.

Allen carried six times for 20 yards and added eight receptions on a team-high 11 targets for 29 yards. In PPR leagues, Allen remains a good FLEX/RB2 option, and he's on the FLEX radar for standard leagues this Thursday night against the Dolphins.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen rushed 10 times for 49 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

He also caught three passes for 17 yards. Allen was out-touched by Alex Collins 15 to 13, but he remains the better option in PPR leagues because of his ability as a receiver. Standard leagues are better off with Collins, but Allen is worth rostering, too. They'll work in tandem again next Sunday against Minnesota, and hopefully the Ravens commit more to the run.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen handles 25 touches in 30-17 win over the Raiders.

Allen rushed 21 times for 73 yards and a score, which came at the goal line in the second quarter. He also caught four passes for 12 yards. The Ravens seem to change the backfield game plan each week, but Allen has been the most consistent with his usage as a receiver, and handling 20+ carries on Sunday was a great sign. Baltimore faces a tough Chicago front in Week 6, but Allen is probably a solid FLEX option.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen caught six passes for 37 yards in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

He also rushed twice for seven yards. Allen has impressed since Danny Woodhead went down, but Alex Collins got the bulk of the carries for Baltimore on Sunday, leaving Allen with most of the receiving work. He's on pace for 64 catches, making him an option in PPR leagues, but it looks like this offense will be hard to predict from week to week.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen gets 13 touches in Ravens' loss in London.

Allen couldn't get much going on his touches, as the Jaguars shut him down on all of his touches. He had eight carries for 15 yards and five receptions for 13 yards. Allen received enough work to do some damage in the game, but obviously it didn't work out that way in the box score.  Allen will be a FLEX option in PPR leagues next week against the Steelers.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen leads the Ravens backfield in Week 2.

Allen rushed 14 times for 66 yards and caught five passes for 35 yards and one touchdown. Presumed starter Terrance West saw just eight carries while Alex Collins received seven, so while West scored on the ground, it looks like we may have a changing of the guard in Baltimore. Allen is probably the best back on the team, and he's worth FLEX consideration in Week 3, even against a tough Jacksonville defense.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen carries 21 times in Week 1.

Allen played more than Terrance West, but it's unclear if it's because the game was a bit of a blowout in Baltimore's favor. He had 21 carries for 71 yards, while West had 19 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown. There's little question Allen will have a role with the Ravens, but it's difficult to say how much of the backfield share he'll take. Allen didn't catch his lone target, but he might be the preferred passing back with Danny Woodhead (hamstring) likely out for a while. He's worth a pickup on the waiver wire.

Javorius Allen | Giants RB

Javorius Allen leads Ravens in rushing in second preseason game.

Allen carried ten times for 40 yards, including a long of 14 yards. The third-year running back also caught all three of his targets for 16 yards. Starter Terrance West (six carries, -2 yards) struggled to get anything going, but the offensive line did him no favors. Still, Allen looks good and probably shouldn't be counted out in Baltimore's backfield as someone they selected in the fourth round in 2015.
