Ravens want RB Javorius Allen to be more decisive


  • Per league reports, the Baltimore Ravens want RB Buck Allen to be more decisive when running the football this season.
  • After playing in all 16 games in 2015 including six games in which he played more than half the team’s snaps, Allen only appeared in eight games in 2016, falling behind Terrence West and Kenneth Dixon on the depth chart. His carries dropped from 137 in 2015 to just nine in 2016.
  • In 2015, Allen averaged only 2.0 yards after contact per attempt, ranking 39th out of 44 running backs with at least 100 attempts. His 29.2 elusive rating ranked 33rd.
  • Allen’s yards after contact per attempt mark were lowest among Ravens runningbacks in 2015. Among the three backs with at least 40 carries in 2015, Allen also had the lowest yards before contact per attempt mark.
