Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs CIN (5 / 37 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Allen wasn't a big part of the offense. He had an early drop, and later had two long runs, including one as the fullback.
2017 Week 16 vs IND (8 / 37 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Allen was the secondary back behind Alex Collins again in this one. He did convert a third and a fourth down and had a pair of excellent runs to get the Ravens deep in Colts territory before being stacked up on a second and short. Allen was used in the red zone despite not scoring and his role is greater there than between the 20s.
2017 Week 15 vs CLE (13 / 70 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Buck Allen rushed for 65 of his 70 yards in the 4th quarter against the Browns. Allen broke runs of 12, 14, and 16 yards in the quarter with Alex Collins dealing with a minor injury. Allen looked fresh and decisive. Allen broke more tackles and ran with more patience than in previous games. The backfield will still be led by Collins but Allen is more than capable as a backup. It is worth noting that Allen would see a greater bump in fantasy value than Danny Woodhead if Collins misses time with an injury.

2017 Week 8 vs MIA (17 / 55 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)

Allen got broke more tackles and got stronger as the game progressed. The Ravens final possession consisted of almost entirely run play calls and the Raiders were unable to stop the Ravens ground game. Allen and Collins moved the chains and ran out the clock with tough interior running.
2017 Week 4 vs PIT (2 / 7 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 37 / 0 rec)
Buck Allen made his first catch on check down during the Ravens two minute drill before halftime. Allen racked up catches in garbage time as the Ravens went into a hurry up offense.

Buck Allen led the Ravens backfield in snaps by a wide margin. Allen could not find any room to run on his receptions out of the backfield or on his carries. Allen was smothered on his routes out of the backfield by Myles Jack and Telvin Smith. Allen remains the Ravens most trusted option in the passing game and the favorite to lead the Ravens backs in snaps on a weekly basis. Terrence West's fumble could create more opportunity for Allen and Alex Collins.
2017 Week 2 vs CLE (14 / 66 / 0 rush, 6 / 5 / 35 / 1 rec)
Buck Allen played very well and may have earned a larger role in the offense going forward. Allen led the Ravens backfield in snaps, carries and targets. Allen is the Ravens most trusted pass catcher and pass blocker at running back and therefore has the most stable role as the Ravens want to use their backs in the passing game. Allen released out of the backfield and worked downfield to get open and was rewarded with a 9 yard touchdown catch. Allen appeared to miss a blitz pickup leading a sack and punt but remained featured in the pass and run game. Allen gained 11 yards on a quick pass out of the backfield. Allen broke a 37 yard run behind a pulling Marshal Yanda showing off his speed and elusiveness in the open field. Allen was brought down at 2 yard line so he nearly had two first half scores. Allen made a catch in the flat and picked up 7 yards. Allen got the edge thanks to a nice block from Austin Howard and stiff armed Jamie Collins on his way to a 14 yard gain.
2017 Week 1 vs CIN (21 / 71 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Buck Allen saw a carry even before Danny Woodhead left the game with injury. Allen was going to play a role for this offense even before the Woodhead injury. His role increased significantly following the injury and Allen ended up with more snaps and carries than Terrence West. The numbers are slightly skewed by the fact that West did not play in the Ravens final two possessions which featured 6 running plays to Allen. However, the fact remains that the Ravens trust Allen more than West as a pass catcher and Allen ran as well or better than West. Allen appeared to be faster and more sudden than West but perhaps not as powerful. Buck Allen had a 10 yard gain on a nice inside run negated by penalty. Allen also had a 14 yard reception negated by a holding penalty.
