RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Former Steeler will get a chance to start at strong safety in Dallas, but his IDP value will be limited.

2012

Originally drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL Draft, Allen signed with the Steelers in 2010. Pittsburgh has two top-notch safeties in Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark, so Allen will likely be little more than a back-up in 2012.

2010

Allen was signed by the Steelers to add some depth at the safety position, but mainly to help out in special teams coverage -- a sore spot for the team in 2009. He is not one to target in fantasy leagues as he recorded 20 total tackles or less in four of his six seasons.

2009

Allen lost his starting job in 2007 but has been a key reserve since, backing up both safety positions. In addition, Allen was the Buccaneers' special-teams captain in 2008. Expect him to reprise both roles in 2009.

2008

Backup free/strong safety. No interceptions, 17 solo tackles in 2007.

2007

Starting free safety in 2006 (four interceptions over three full seasons), but he'll face competition in camp.

2006

He'll take over from Dexter Jackson as the free safety on the Bucs. Three interceptions, 34 tackles, 14 assists and a fumble recovery for a TD in just 13 games last year. Broke his thumb in the first week of camp, so check his status before your IDP draft.

2005

Will compete for a reserve defensive back spot in camp.

2004

If he makes the team, Allen will play primarily on special teams.

2003
