  • Ravens' Javorius Allen: Limited to No. 3 role
    By RotoWire Staff

    Allen had three carries for eight yards and caught his only target for a nine-yard gain in Sunday's 23-0 win over the packers. With Alex Collins serving as the lead back and Danny Woodhead returning from injured reserve to handle passing downs, Allen was relegated to the No. 3 role. He entered the game as Baltimore's leader in carries, targets, receptions and scrimmage yards, but Allen is unlikely to surpass a handful of touches per week going forward unless Collins or Woodhead suffers an injury. This essentially is the role that Allen was expected to handle prior to the season, albeit with Terrance West (rather than Collins) acting as the lead back. West was a healthy scratch for Sunday's game, and his lack of special teams value likely will prevent him from challenging Allen for the No. 3 backfield job.

  • Ravens' Javorius Allen: Heavily targeted Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Allen caught seven of eight targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Titans and added seven carries for 21 yards. Alex Collins remains the lead back on standard downs, but Allen re-emerged as a go-to target out of the backfield on passing downs Sunday after making just one reception in his previous outing. Allen's seven receptions were one shy of tying a season-high and his touchdown grab was his first since Week 2. Baltimore is heading into the bye week and considering that Danny Woodhead could be healthy by the time the Ravens return to action, Allen could see a scaled-back role moving forward.

  • Allen rushed 17 times for 55 yards and brought in one of three targets for two yards in Thursday's 40-0 win over the Dolphins. With Joe Flacco knocked out of the contest late in the first half with a concussion, Allen and backfield mate Alex Collins combined for 35 carries in support of backup Ryan Mallett. It was Allen's second-highest carry total of the season, and despite the extended action, he actually notched his second-lowest reception total as well. Given his body of work in the passing game, the latter development is likely an aberration. The 26-year-old tailback will look to build on Thursday's production against the Titans in Week 9.

  • Ravens' Javorius Allen: Catches eight passes Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Allen carried six times for 20 yards caught eight of his 11 targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Vikings. Meanwhile, fellow RB Alex Collins logged a team-high 10 carries for 30 yards. On a day when not much was clicking in the Baltimore offense, Allen was at least involved enough in the team's passing game to help out those in PPR formats. Look for more of the same Thursday against the Dolphins, especially if the Ravens' wideout corps continues to be shorthanded, as it was Sunday, with Mike Wallace (concussion), Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and Breshad Perriman (concussion) all banged up.

  • Ravens' Javorius Allen: Splits work in Week 6 loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Allen rushed 10 times for 49 yards and added three catches for 17 yards on four targets in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Bears. Allen and Alex Collins saw a near-even split with Terrance West (calf) sitting, as Collins got 15 carries without a target. It's tough to project how touches in Baltimore's backfield will break down from week to week, but it's apparent that Allen possesses the best receiving chops out of the team's options at running back. Given how poorly quarterback Joe Flacco has performed so far, it's probably best for fantasy owners to avoid Ravens players altogether if they can help it.
