2018 Fantasy Outlook
As if getting off to a slow start last season as a 24-year-old at Double-A wasn't bad enough, Allen missed more than two months after breaking his hand in early May. He was about the same before and after the injury, showing off 70-grade speed on the bases (21-for-23 on stolen-base attempts) while struggling to do damage at the plate. Now entering his age-25 season with just 39 plate appearances above Double-A (all in the majors), the warning signs of a likely fourth outfielder are getting harder to ignore. His speed on the bases could be immensely valuable in fantasy, but he needs to get enough playing time to make an impact. It's possible he is able to be Rajai Davis 2.0, drifting from bad team to bad team, racking up starts in center field and tallying several 40-steal campaigns. Unfortunately, it is hard to see any of that happening in Cleveland, and he is valuable enough as a backup that they have no incentive to get rid of him. Read Past Outlooks

Allen went 1-for-5 with two stolen bases Thursday against the Royals.
ANALYSIS
Allen received more than two at-bats for only the third time since September 16. However, he took advantage by swiping his 20th and 21st bases of the season, both of which came against Jason Hammel in the top of the 10th inning. Despite the limited playing time, Allen remains an intriguing option for stolen base production, as he's recorded six since Sept. 22.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Allen posted a 124 wRC+ and stole 46 bases in 2015, but considering he was 22 and at Low-A, it was easy to overlook. He then bested those numbers across stops at High-A, Double-A and the Arizona Fall League en route to being one of the top pop-up prospects of 2016. Despite his age and draft slot (sixth round in 2014), this is a legitimate high-end prospect. He walked more than he struck out at High-A and maintained an excellent approach at Double-A. His success rate on the bases jumped from 74.2 percent to 77.6 percent while running against more advanced batteries. He sold out for power in the AFL, hitting three home runs in 22 games, but that is not his game. The determining factor for his fantasy value will be his hit tool. If it is a 50 grade, he is Michael Bourn. If it is a 60 or better, he might be Kenny Lofton. Look for him to make his big league debut sometime this summer.
