2023 Fantasy Outlook
After taking the college football world by storm as a true freshman in 2021 and then seeing his production dip slightly last season, the pressure is on Allen to remind the country why he should be considered one of the top backs nationwide. Last year, Allen still displayed the same vision, power and burst that helped him run wild as a freshman, but the Badgers’ offense was largely lethargic. Uninspiring play-calling and shaky quarterback play factored into his slight regression last season, but the tailback still managed to post 1,242 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. Now, under new offensive coordinator Phil Longo, Allen looks primed to explode in 2023. Longo’s spread system stretches defenses out horizontally pre-snap, which should greatly reduce the number of stacked boxes Allen will face. And while Longo’s offense is technically an air-raid, he loves to utilize talented running backs when he has them. Allen will share the backfield with another talented back in Chez Mellusi, but he’s still the unquestioned RB1 in Madison. Read Past Outlooks

Pro Draft Prep
November 28, 2023
Allen announced Tuesday via social media that he will forgo his remaining eligibility at Wisconsin to enter the 2024 NFL Draft.
ANALYSIS
According to Evan Flood of 247Sports.com, Allen will sit out Wisconsin's Jan. 1 ReliaQuest Bowl matchup with LSU, thereby spelling an end to his Badgers career. Over three seasons in Madison, Allen compiled 3,494 yards and 35 touchdowns on 597 carries (5.9 average) while adding 49 catches for 275 yards.

College Fantasy Football Start vs. Sit: Players to Start, Players to Bench for Week 12
242 days ago
Chris Morgan scours the college football landscape and supplies some of his start and sit options from conferences around the country. He believes it's worth deploying Lequint Allen in most formats in Week 12.
2022 Fantasy Outlook
A bruising back at 6-foot-2 and 238 pounds, Allen entered 2021 as the presumed third or fourth-string running back. Things all changed with Jalen Berger’s dismissal and season-ending injuries for Isaac Guerendo and Chez Mellusi moving him into a workhorse role. Allen finished with 1,219 yards and 11 rushing scores over the last nine games. While Mellusi and Guerendo’s returns to the mix could scale back the team’s reliance on Allen, he should remain the featured option in an offense that sported the nation’s fifth-highest run play rate (64.0 percent) last season.
