How does NT feel about TE Dwayne Allen?
Wilson will be a really good RB3/FLEX play to go along with Richardson and Rice.
I actually just had a discussion about preference of playing WR or RB in the FLEX spot.
The top 20 WRs for a week will almost always outscore the top 20 RBs but the problem is that the top 20 WRs experience much more variability form week to week. Let's look at Week 1 as an example. Some WRs that did well but very few people started: Hankerson, Hartline, Royal, Kearse, Simpson, Brown. And WRs that almost everyone started but gave you duds: Dez, Decker, Bowe, Wallace, White.
Both lists for RBs are much shorter because they are more consistent overall. That being said, a lot of it is dependent on your roster and if you've got a plethora of WRs with great match-ups then you'll definitely want them in your lineup.
As far as Allen goes, I think he has the same problem that guys like Eifert/Gresham and Julius Thomas have in that they are on offenses where there's a lot of other guys that will take away targets so expecting him to consistently give you 6+ points week in and week out is folly.

In a PPR league I would definitely call him top 5. Standard scoring he can still probably end up top 10 in that offense.
