At RotoViz, our motto is “seeing is believing.” Our team leverages various internal apps and external resources to make that motto come to fruition. The RB Countdown series will provide you fantasy analysis and outlooks on the top-50 running backs in PPR formats to empower you to make educated decisions on draft day. Ravens running back Javorius Allen set career highs in multiple statistical categories last season. He and Alex Collins carried the team’s running game due to injuries to Danny Woodhead, Terrance West, and Kenneth Dixon. Collins handled a high percentage of the early down and short yardage carries while Allen operated as the receiving back. Both RBs ended up combining for 2,001 total yards and 12 touchdowns last season. Allen took advantage of the increased playing time by finishing as the RB23 in PPR formats. He touched the football or was targeted on 46 percent of his offensive snaps last season. The Ravens decision to not draft an RB in the NFL Draft after the retirement of Woodhead suggests the team has confidence in Collins, Allen, and Dixon in 2018. All of them find themselves entering a contract year trying to solidify a career-defining pay day. With that in mind, let’s take a look at three things you should know about Allen heading into fantasy drafts.
