Ravens happy with RB Buck Allen's receiving ability

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

One of the top reasons the Ravens selected rookie running back Buck Allen (a.k.a. Javorius Allen) in the fourth round of the NFL draft was his ability to catch passes out of the backfield.

"We've seen Buck catch passes, we've seen Buck pass protect, so we know he can do it," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "He has done it out here and looks very smooth doing it. He's running the ball well. We haven't had any surprises."

Fantasy Impact: 

Allen will likely learn behind Justin Forsett, who just signed a three-year deal after having a career year under former OC Gary Kubiak. With OC Marc Trestman in the fold, we're expecting Forsett (and eventually, Allen) to be very active in the passing game.
