2018 Fantasy Outlook
Allen enters his final season with the Nittany Lions in a similar position as he has been his entire collegiate career. Miles Sanders, who will take over as the primary rusher following Saquon Barkley's departure for the NFL, should receive the bulk of the carries in 2018. It's difficult seeing Allen making a huge impact after rushing no more than 29 times in a season prior, but he should contend with incoming freshman Ricky Slade for the team's backup duties.

Pursuing NCAA waiver and new school
RBNo Current School
Knee
February 18, 2019
Allen (knee) plans to apply for a sixth season of eligibility from the NCAA and intends to continue his career elsewhere if granted the waiver, Greg Pickel of PennLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
A backup running back for most of his five-year career at Penn State, Allen was limited to just three games in 2018 before his season ended due to a knee injury. Over the four seasons in which he played -- he used a redshirt as a true freshman in 2014 -- Allen accrued 350 yards and four touchdowns on 89 carries (3.9 per carry) while adding 12 receptions for 93 yards and two more scores. In the event he receives a waiver, the 5-foot-6, 184-pound Allen would likely move to a smaller school that would present him with an easier path to snaps.
