Player Outlook
After a slow start to his rookie season, Allgeier came on incredibly strong in the second half. Allgeier averaged just under 100 rushing yards per game (96) after Week 13 and scored inside the top 10 at running back in three of his last four games. Volume was certainly a factor in Allgeier's stretch run where he averaged 17.8 rushing attempts per game, and that number is going to collapse after the Falcons used a top-10 pick on RB Bijan Robinson. Despite the promising rookie season, Allgeier enters 2023 as a handcuff who could see some surprise red-zone and change-of-pace touches. He makes for a high-upside gamble for those who missed RB in the first few rounds starting in Round 10, and those who use a first-round pick on Robinson could look to handcuff Allgeier as soon as Round 9.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Plays backup role in 2023

    Allgeier finished the 2023 campaign with 186 rushing attempts for 683 yards and four touchdowns and caught 18 of 23 targets for 193 yards and an additional score over 17 appearances. After totaling 226 touches for 1,174 yards in 16 games as a rookie, Allgeier recorded 204 touches for 876 yards across 17 appearances in Year 2. Allgeier's drop in production was expected after the addition of 2023 first-round pick Bijan Robinson, but it wasn't necessarily due to a reduced role on offense. The 2022 fifth-round draft pick simply struggled to replicate the 4.9 yards per carry he generated last season and posted a modest 3.7 mark in 2023. It's unclear if Cordarrelle Patterson will return next season, but Robinson and Allgeier should be back at the top of Atlanta's running back depth chart in 2024, barring a major splash in free agency. However, it's also worth noting that head coach Arthur Smith has been fired, so the Falcons' run-heavy offense may be overhauled depending on whom gets hired as his replacement.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Scores long touchdown in Week 17

    Allgeier took five carries for 13 yards and caught his only target for a 75-yard touchdown during Sunday's 37-17 loss in Chicago. Allgeier handled his fewest rushes in a game this season and fell below 3.0 yards per carry for the first time since Week 7, but he offset it by turning a screen pass from quarterback Taylor Heinicke into the longest play from scrimmage of his two-year career. The score also marked Allgeier's third in the last five contests to push him to a new career best of five TDs. Next up for Allgeier is the Saints' 21st-ranked run defense (122.5 yards per game) in Week 18.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Efficient afternoon in win

    Allgeier rushed nine times for 69 yards and a touchdown and brought in his only target for a 19-yard reception in the Falcons' 29-10 win over the Colts on Sunday. Allgeier was only three carries behind Bijan Robinson, who had an efficient day himself, and the former was the only one of the two to get into the end zone, doing so via a nifty 31-yard run up the right sideline early in the third quarter. Allgeier continues to get his fair share of opportunities most weeks at Robinson's expense, capping the full fantasy value of both to an extent heading into a Week 17 road matchup against a tough Bears run defense.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Team-high rushing tally Sunday

    Allgeier rushed nine times for 40 yards and wasn't targeted in the Falcons' 29-25 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. Allgeier's yardage total paced the Falcons' ground attack on a day when the Buccaneers' run defense mostly clamped down on him and backfield mate Bijan Robinson. Allgeier also went without a target for the third straight game, his longest such stretch this season. Allgeier was encouragingly only one rush attempt behind Robinson's tally, but the timeshare scenario in Atlanta's backfield lowers the former's fantasy ceiling more because of his lack of a consistent pass-catching role.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Minimal impact in win

    Allgeier rushed eight times for 26 yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets. Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson (five carries for 11 yards) both rotated in to spell Bijan Robinson, who turned 18 carries and five targets into 79 scrimmage yards. With Robinson healthy, Allgeier has totaled between eight and 12 carries in each of the last five games. Allgeier's role is unlikely to change in Week 14 against the Buccaneers.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Strong showing in No. 2 role

    Allgeier rushed 10 times for 64 yards and wasn't targeted during the Falcons' 24-15 win over the Saints on Sunday. Allgeier played a clear second fiddle to Bijan Robinson, who finished with 16 carries for 91 yards and a touchdown while also contributing a 3-32-1 line through the air. However, Allgeier's numbers were excellent considering his complementary role, and his yardage tally served as his highest since Week 1. Allgeier next faces what has occasionally been a vulnerable Jets run defense in a Week 13 road matchup.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Sleeper RBs

    In full disclosure, I hope Allgeier struggles in Week 10 at Arizona, mostly because I want Bijan Robinson to dominate touches and, in turn, dominate the Cardinals. But we know Arthur Smith is committed to Allgeier, who has at least 13 total touches in four of the past five games. He scored at least 11 PPR points in two of those outings, and he could end up with a decent stat line with that amount of work against the Cardinals. Arizona is No. 3 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, and Allgeier can be used as a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Modest role in loss

    Allgeier rushed eight times for 31 yards during Sunday's 28-23 loss to the Titans. With Bijan Robinson (illness) back to full strength, Allgeier saw his fewest rushing attempts since Week 4 and wasn't targeted in the passing attack. It was just the third time the BYU product has garnered single-digit touches this year, and he remains a low-end RB3 who likely needs to find the end zone to deliver quality fantasy production.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Heavy workload with Robinson unwell

    Allgeier rushed 21 times for 59 yards and caught all three of his targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Buccaneers. Bijan Robinson (illness) got just one touch, as the standout rookie didn't feel well, per Greg Auman of Fox Sports. With Robinson out of the game plan, Allgeier tied his career high with 24 touches. A 46-yard catch bolstered Allgeier's stat line, but the second-year running back averaged just 2.9 yards on his other 23 touches, while Cordarrelle Patterson rushed for 56 yards on just 10 carries. If Robinson returns to his usual lead role in Week 8 against the Titans, Allgeier will likely see a decline in volume.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Handles 13 carries in loss

    Allgeier rushed 13 times for 51 yards and failed to haul in his only target during Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Commanders. Allgeier tied Bijan Robinson in rushing attempts and was slightly more efficient than the rookie, but the latter still outproduced the former when factoring in the passing game. Allgeier has seen double-digit rushing attempts in four of six games thus far, but he's averaging a measly 3.1 yards per carry after posting a 4.9 YPC as a rookie last year. Currently, Allgeier is a low-end RB3 who likely needs to find the end zone to deliver quality fantasy production.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Scores twice in Week 1

    Allgeier rushed 15 times for 75 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Panthers. He also caught all three of his targets for 19 yards. Allgeier finished with more rushing attempts and rushing yards than Bijan Robinson, and the two running backs accounted for all three of the Falcons' touchdowns. Overall, Allgeier recorded 18 touches for 94 yards, while Robinson finished with 16 touches for 83 yards. Robinson is certainly the more dynamic back, but Allgeier consistently gets the job done and figures to have a solid role in Atlanta's run-heavy attack moving forward. It's also extremely encouraging to see Allgeier involved in the passing game, as he caught three or more passes just three times across 16 appearances last year.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: One carry in preseason debut

    Allgeier carried the ball once for -1 yards in Friday's 13-13 tie against the Bengals in preseason action. Allgeier was the first back on the field and carried the ball for seven yards on the opening play from scrimmage, though the gain was ultimately washed out due to a holding penalty. He touched the ball only one additional time, which resulted in a loss. Bijan Robinson led the backfield Friday and will do the same when the Falcons kick off the regular season against the Panthers.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Looking at reduced role

    Allgeier will be joined by No. 8 overall draft pick Bijan Robinson in the Atlanta backfield, The Athletic's Josh Kendall reports. A fifth-rounder last spring, Allgeier set the team rookie rushing record with 1,035 yards but will have a hard time matching that number while competing for carries with one of the best RB prospects of the past decade. Robinson's combine weight (215) was just five pounds shy of Allgeier's listed weight, and the rookie ran a much faster 40-yard dash (4.46 compared to 4.60) than his new backfield mate. The two players had similar production their final two collegiate seasons, but Robinson did it at a younger age against tougher competition and with far more receiving production to boot. Allgeier may thus be reduced to a backup role as soon as Week 1, and at best he'll be splitting work in a backfield where 32-year-old Cordarrelle Patterson is also under contract and could get some touches. Even in Arthur Smith's run-heavy offense, Allgeier probably won't get enough work to be a fantasy starter if Robinson stays healthy.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: RBs to Start

    Allgeier was great as the Start of the Week in Week 17, scoring 16 PPR points against Arizona with 20 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 12 yards on one target. He's now scored at least 15 PPR points in three games in a row, and he should finish the season strong against the Buccaneers, who aren't expected to play their starters for much of the game, if at all. Allgeier needs 100 yards for a 1,000-yard season, so hopefully he gets enough carries to make that happen, and I like him once again as a standout No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    The matchup is irresistible, and even though it's a certainty Cordarrelle Patterson will take work away, the Falcons have seemingly committed to Allgeier over the past few weeks and don't have a good reason to go away from him. He's expected to see the most work in a great matchup, which puts him in line to be a low-end No. 2 Fantasy RB. Patterson is at best a non-PPR touchdown-dependent flex.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Strong showing against Ravens

    Allgeier carried the ball 18 times for 74 yards and caught four of five targets for 43 yards in Saturday's 17-9 loss to Baltimore. The rookie has now topped 100 scrimmage yards in back-to-back games, and with Atlanta now eliminated from playoff contention, it's likely Allgeier will remain the top option in the Falcons backfield for their final two games ahead of 31-year-old Cordarrelle Patterson, who may not factor into the team's future plans. Heading into a Week 17 clash with the Cardinals, Allgeier has 817 rushing yards through 14 contests, giving him a shot at a 1,000-yard campaign with two games remaining.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Week 16 Waiver Priority List

    Allgeier just had a career game in Week 15 at New Orleans with 17 carries for 139 yards and a touchdown, along with one catch for minus-3 yards on one target. He's not someone I want to start in Week 16 at Baltimore, but I would like to potentially use him in Week 17 against Arizona. He's going to continue sharing touches with Cordarrelle Patterson, but the Falcons might start giving Allgeier more work to close the season to see if he's their potential starter in 2023. For this year, if he does anything of significance against the Ravens in Week 16 then he could be a flex option in Week 17 against the Cardinals.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Week 16 Early Waiver Targets (Add/Drop)

    Allgeier didn't need an injury to become the Falcons lead back Sunday; he seemingly took the opportunity and ran with it. Cordarrelle Patterson was still plenty involved, but with Caleb Huntley leaving with an ankle injury, Allgeier led the backfield in carries and yards, while both he and Patterson found the end zone. The Falcons passing game was nonexistent with rookie Desmond Ridder making his first start, so Allgeier had to carry a very heavy load under difficult conditions, and he acquitted himself very well. There's no guarantee that he'll be the team's lead back in Week 16, but it wouldn't be surprising either. It's a tough matchup against Baltimore, but Allgeier will probably be in the RB3 range in my rankings for that one.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Sneaky Sleeper (Lineup Decisions)

    Allgeier isn't expected to lead the Falcons in rushing, but he is coming off a game where he split snaps pretty evenly with Cordarrelle Patterson and was stunningly efficient. I always like to use running backs on Thursday nights, especially against tired defenses that got stomped four days prior. Allgeier is a good flex I'd use in non-PPR over Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Robinson, Taysom Hill and Brian Robinson.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Tallies first career touchdown

    Allgeier carried the ball 16 times for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-17 loss to the Bengals. After splitting work with Caleb Huntley in Week 6, Allgeier took hold of the lead back role against the Bengals by accounting for 16 of the team's 23 carries by running backs. He failed to tally a gain of at least 10 yards, though he did manage a pair of nine and eight-yard rushes, respectively. However, the highlight of his day came on a one-yard plunge into the end zone just before halftime -- the first touchdown of his career. Allgeier has at least 10 carries in five of his six games this season, tallying 50 or more rushing yards on three occasions.
