RB Tyler Allgeier, ATL (1 Viewer)

He played his first NFL game against Aaron Donald. Forget the yards per carry, he got 10 carries. The Falcons do not want to have Cordarelle get 20 touches a game. Patterson had 10 rushes against the Rams too (for 41 yards if you're curious).

Allgeier has an opportunity to get half their rushing, maybe even more if he earns it. He's got the size and vision for goal line carries if he earns them.

The Falcons are 0-2 but they have been really competitive in games this year. I don't care about their record, i just care that they're not in hurry up passing mode from the third quarter on, and they aren't.

I'm higher on his talent than a lot of you seem to be, so take that with a grain of salt.

CPat probably just getting vet rest but has missed 2 practices in a row.

This kid would be getting the bulk of the carries and has looked sort of ok, right?

With Cordarrelle Patterson going to IR (out at least 4 weeks) it looks like it is Allegeier chance to show us what he can do as the lead back.

Hard to say yet whether it will be him or a 2-way or 3-way committee with him, Huntley and/or Damien Williams (who is eligible to come back from IR).

Not sure what to make of this situation.

Next couple weeks this offense runs into TB and SF. Ugh.

That said, if this guy is a starter or at least 1A he could jump to the #1 claim this week in 12+ team leagues.

Perhaps wishful thinking on my part as I own him in 8 of my 9 Dynasty Leagues. :-)

However, I acquired him based on his highlights reel, where he looked like lead RB material to me. We will see.

I might leave these guys to my leaguemates while CPat is out. Almost zero involvement in the passing game for any backs and could be "TD roulette".

True, not the best matchups (on paper at least), but a potential starting RB - for perhaps the rest of the year even when Patterson returns - has a lot of value. I would throw a lot of FAAB in waivers if he were available.

What round was this guy drafted? He was touted prior to drafts, but I must say, not sure he's been passing my own personal eye test.

Hes nothing special but in the world of fantasy hes a warm body getting touches on a team that likes to run the ball which gives him value.

5th, but especially in today's NFL, not sure you can make an assessment on RB talent based on draft position. Time has shown it's often a plug and play position and many guys can and have been late round draft picks, or not drafted at all.

For some reason he fell to the 5th round, despite an impressive highlight reel and his 2021 season stats at BYU of:
1601 rushing yards (and 2 back-to-back 1000 yard seasons)
23 rushing touchdowns
50 broken tackles

I think he did poorly at the combine, with a slow 40 time (I believe he is one of those players with game speed rather than straight line speed)

Edited to add:

Found his BYU highlight reel

Tyler Allgeier rushed 15 times for 51 yards in the Falcons' Week 6 win over the 49ers.


Allgeier led the backfield with a 57% snap share with Caleb Huntley at 34%. However, Huntley led the backfield with 16 attempts for 59 rushing yards. Allgeier's snap lead should give him an edge if the Falcons are forced to pass more in future weeks. That could be the case against the Bengals in Week 7, after the Bengals opened their offense up a bit against the Saints.

Tyler Allgeier rushed 16 times for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 7 loss to the Bengals.


Allgeier was not targeted in the passing game, which isn't much of a surprise since Marcus Mariota attempted only 13 passes. It's a miracle Allgeier saw the run-game volume he did with the Falcons falling behind 21-0 in the opening seconds of the second quarter. Thankfully for those who took the RB3 plunge, the Falcons are one of those rare offenses that remain committed to the run no matter the game situation. Nowhere was that more vividly illustrated on Sunday than when Allgeier capped off a 16-play, 10:09 drive with a one-yard score in the second quarter. Allgeier ceded a modest six carries to Caleb Huntley and would have seen more work if not for the Falcons' comically-low play volume. Get ready for a Week 8 rock fight with the Panthers.

We've missed a couple updates since the last post in this thread

85 total yards and a touchdown while getting outrushed by Huntley

123 total yards despite Patterson being back and Huntley getting 7 rushes

Allgeier seems to have established himself as a big part of one of the most run heavy offenses in the NFL, a team which is currently in the lead in the NFC south.

He's got 4 catches for 70 yards and a touchdown in his last 2 games.

He could easily get replaced especially if the Falcons pounce on Bijan. But he might just be good.

Tyler Allgeier rushed 10 times for 99 yards and caught a pass for 25 yards in the Falcons' Week 9 loss to the Chargers.

Allgeier started his day with a 44-yard carry to get the Falcons in the red zone. Cordarrelle Patterson ultimately scored on the drive and found the end zone again later in the day. He out-carried Allgeier 13-10. Allgeier has proven to be a capable playmaker for the Falcons but is stuck behind Patterson on the depth chart. Atlanta's run-first approach could keep him in the RB4 [RB3?] conversation for Week 10.

Tyler Allgeier rushed eight times for 20 yards in the Falcons' Week 10 loss to the Panthers, "adding" three receptions for -17 yards.​

That second number is not a typo. Allgeier's "longest" reception went for -5 yards. Stupefying. The rookie did out-snap and out-touch Cordarrelle Patterson in C-Patt's second game back from injured reserve, but both were out-gained by each of Caleb Huntley, Avery Williams and Marcus Mariota on the ground. It was a fluke with Allgeier and Patterson winning the snap battle. Despite tonight's awful statline, Allgeier will remain in the low-end RB3 mix for Week 11 against the Bears' struggling defense.
