Tyler Allgeier, Dynasty Fantasy Football Rookie.


Tyler Allgeier running for BYU.

Our thoughts on 2022 NFL rookie running back Tyler Allgeier.


Measurables:

  • 5'10 224 lbs

  • 4.60 40-yard dash

  • 33" vertical jump

  • 10' broad jump



"Allgeir played at linebacker and runs through people like he still plays that position."

Strengths:

  • Tyler Allgeier has a solid build and displays athleticism for a bigger running back.

  • He can read blocks quickly, demonstrates his cutting ability, and has good contact balance as he gets through smaller holes.

  • Allgeier takes a few seconds to get up to speed, but his second-level speed is surprising.

  • In 2021, 33.8% of his carries resulted in a touchdown or first down, resulting in 23 rushing touchdowns.

  • Tyler's hands are going to be useful on screens and check-downs.

  • Coaches say he’s very humble and a hard worker. He didn’t complain when asked to play linebacker.

Weaknesses:

  • On tape, Tyler Allgeier plays at his 40-yard dash time and has very little wiggle.

  • He uses his size to break tackles through force instead of avoiding defenders in the open field.

  • As with many young running backs, he can get caught by surprise during pass protection situations.

  • Running back fumbles are a killer for early fantasy production. Allgeier fumbled the ball four times in 2021.

  • Concerning is his 3.2 yards-per-carry versus the top-2 run defenses he faced in 2021.


Drunk Thoughts


Tyler Allgeier looks like a short-yardage or goal-line running back, also known as a touchdown vulture. He fits the role of a running back in a constant timeshare with one or more running backs. If you don't own Allgeier, he will take away all the high-value carries from the running back you do have on your roster. He figures to be a third-round rookie draft pick based on the current average draft position data. Honestly, the risk is low enough that you shouldn't be worried about taking him and waiting for an injury to his counterpart for him to get a full workload.
