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.

Jahmyr Gibbs Could Have Bigger Role In 2024

Tuesday, May 14, 9:22 PM

Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes said this week on The Rich Eisen Show that second-year running back Jahmyr Gibbs could have an even bigger role in 2024. "I definitely would expect him to see more of a load, but David Montgomery will still be here too," Holmes said. "Dan and I love that 1-2 punch of him and David." The former first-round pick in 2023 was third among running backs with 5.2 yards per carry in his rookie campaign, so fantasy managers that were already fond of Gibbs' stock in a rising Lions offense will be pleased that he could be even more valuable as an RB1 in 2024. Not only should the 22-year-old former Alabama back see more carries, but he should also be more involved in the passing attack, where he can really excel with yards after the catch in open space. Only seven RBs saw more targets than Gibbs' 71 in 2023.
