Player Outlook
We expect Allen to win the RB2 job behind Breece Hall, making him worthy of a pick in the double-digit rounds of most redraft leagues. Allen was a true workhorse in college, amassing 3,769 yards from scrimmage and 35 touchdowns in three seasons at Wisconsin. He also won't turn 21 years old until January of 2025. That youth and proven three-down ability should make Allen a popular Dynasty stash even if he's likely stuck behind Breece Hall for the next two seasons. If Hall were to suffer an injury, Allen would have a chance to be a must-start Fantasy running back, assuming he beats out Israel Abanikanda as we expect him to. In rookie drafts you can start looking for Allen in Round 3.

  • Jets' Braelon Allen: Look smooth catching passes

    Allen has made "a ton of plays as a pass catcher" during OTAs, according to Connor Hughes of SNY.tv. Breece Hall's absence with a lower-body injury has opened up first-team snaps for Allen and fellow rookie Isaiah Davis. It's a bit surprising to hear that Allen has made waves in the passing game, considering he's a 235-pound back who had 275 receiving yards over three seasons as the lead runner at Wisconsin. Picked in the fourth round this spring, Allen is the youngest player in the draft class and will be 20 years old for the entirety of his rookie season. Allen's youth and lack of major pass-catching experience in college might seem to hint at a slow learning curve, but by all accounts, he and Davis (a fifth-round pick) have been relatively quick studies while competing with 2023 fifth-round pick Israel Abanikanda for backup roles. Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic believes Allen is "the clear frontrunner" to be the Jets' No. 2 running back.

  • Jets' Braelon Allen: Chance to back up Hall

    The Jets selected Allen in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, 134th overall. Allen followed in the footsteps of Jonathan Taylor as a prolific rusher at Wisconsin. He totaled 3,494 yards on the ground across 35 games with the Badgers, but he didn't show much ability as a pass catcher with just 49 catches over three seasons, which was part of the reason he lasted until Round 4. The Jets will hope that Allen doesn't see much work in his rookie campaign, but he should have the chance to compete with Israel Abanikanda to back up Breece Hall.
