Tyler Allgeier Has Quiet Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 9:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier was not able to get much going against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The second-year back rushed six times for 24 yards, while hauling in all three of his targets for 10 yards through the air in the loss. Despite the Falcons drafting Bijan Robinson in the first round, Allgeier remain a consistent part of the Falcons offense. He rushed 186 times for 683 yards with four touchdowns, while adding 18 receptions for 193 yards and an additional touchdown through the air. The assumption is that the Falcons are going to stick with this two-back committee next season. That means, Allgeier will hold some flex appeal and possibly more if Robinson ever goes down with an injury in 2024.

Bijan Robinson To Be More Of A Run-First Back?

Tuesday, June 4, 12:20 AM

During an interview at organized team activities on Monday, Atlanta Falcons second-year running back Bijan Robinson said the plan this year is to use him as a runner first, kind of "like how they use Christian (McCaffrey) down there in San Francisco," while still being creative with how they use him out of the backfield as a pass-catcher. It will be hard for Atlanta to be more run-heavy on offense than they were last year under head coach Arthur Smith, but the bottom line is that to no one's surprise, Robinson is going to be a focal point for the new offense run by Zac Robinson, a Sean McVay disciple. In an offense that should be able to sustain more drives with quarterback Kirk Cousins, Robinson has high-end RB1 upside going into his sophomore season after totaling 1,463 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns in his first year in the NFL in 2023.
