Javorius Allen, Marcus Mariota & Ryan Fitzpatrick among NFL’s most Buzz-worthy players in Week 13

 

AllenTake a look at the NFL’s stat sheets for running backs and it’s not a pretty sight these days in terms of production that would wow anyone.

At least not on the Emmitt Smith Standard.

However, with the game continuing to change so, too, are the roles that RBs play. Take a look at the stat sheet for catches on Sunday and there was a new name right at the top — and it wasn’t a receiver. Ravens RB Javorius Allen had 12 catches for 131 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. Tack on 17 carries for 63 yards and the fourth-round pick out of USC looks even more impressive.

Could it be a fluke? Could it be an arrival? Only time will tell. For the season, Allen now has just 367 yards rushing and 242 yards receiving with just two touchdowns total on the year. Buzz bets there are some bargains to be had.
