Week 4 at Pittsburgh Steelers
Javorius Allen has four touchdowns through three games, including two last week against the Broncos. While that kind of pace will be difficult to sustain over the course of the season, it’s encouraging to see Allen getting short-yardage work. It seems fluky, however, as he’s only touching the ball an average of 9.7 times per game, with nearly half of that production coming in the passing game.
Allen has some upside this week against the Steelers, particularly in PPR formats. Pittsburgh has shown an ability to put up points, which may keep the Ravens throwing the ball. If that’s the case, Allen could get additional snaps and gobble up targets on check-downs. He’s a risky option, but worth considering in deep, PPR formats.
