That botched garbage time TD might come back to bite a few teams that started Allen this week.  Figures that Collins would have a breakout game after last weeks news blurb said " Collins is a mere low-end, low-floor flex option ".  It's frustrating owning both as you don't know who to start, but it's shaping up to be Collins at this point forward.

Gets 50-60 yards a game, with goal line carries.  I don’t see a problem with him as a bye week fill in.  Once again, over reaction is crazy here

USED to get goal line carries. I guarantee that changes this week.

You can’t say he used to, when Collins has yet to have a red zone carry.    Until it changes, Buck Allen is a 40-60 yard a game back who gets goal line carries.  Perfect as a flex/bye week rb

Collins did have a RZ carry last night. Buck's fate has been sealed with that horrific GL fumble he had, drop city

Plus Collins was used just starting to be used in the passing game. Buck? Game over.

Buck Allen has a safe floor in PPR leagues as a RB3/flex. And can put up RB2 numbers if he breaks a run or scores a TD. But if Woodhead returns he will definitely lose that role imo. Woodhead was brought in as a FA for that role.

So are those that own Allen and Woodhead holding on to Buck as a cuff?  Woodhead is hardly the model Of good health, but I could use the roster space....

I’m not. With Alex Collins getting a lot of touches, West coming back and the fact that all but hopefully Woodhead are entirely game script dependent.

I am, but that decision is entirely league dependent. We know what the usage splits look like with Woodhead and West out. Even when West comes back, either Woodhead (if healthy) or Allen is the pass catching back on a team that throws a ton to the RB.

 

I feel like I have an RB2 spot locked up (.5 PPR) in the event Woodhead goes down if I hold onto Allen, and in a deeper 12 team there isn't anything on the wire that will have more value at this point in the season.

"if Woodhead suits up, Allen would be rendered nearly useless in fantasy" .. i love how rotoworld is hyping the old man Woodhead and throwing Buck to the curb .. meanwhile Buck is quietly having a career year and has been very useful in ppr .. I would be a little more concerned about West returning but if Buck is available in your ppr league grab him now i have a feeling he could be the game changer your looking for down the stretch run of fantasy football

I was thinking the same thing when Buck owner in my league dropped him.  

 

Has that happened in other leagues?  Even if Woody becomes the man, there is no guarantee he stays on the field.  Buck would be a great cuff right?

 

EDit:  Never-mind  answer has been given in thread.

As a Buck Allen owner in PPR, I am certainly holding onto him unless I absolutely need to let him go.  Woodhead gets dinged up getting off the bus and Terrence West is JAG who has also been dealing with injury issues.  If Woodhead comes back and plays 100% of games from here on out, I expect him to be the passing down back.  However, I do not expect in the slightest for Woodhead to play the remainder of the season.
