J.K. Dobbins Does Little In Week 6

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins carried the ball nine times for 28 yards and added two receptions for a yard in a 30-28 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6. The rookie back ripped off a 16-yard run in the game but was unable to do much else, despite starter Mark Ingram II leaving during the second quarter with an ankle injury and not returning to action. The Ravens opted to use Gus Edwards as the lead back after Ingram's injury while keeping Dobbins in a change of pace role. Dobbins has plenty of upside but the workload split in the Baltimore backfield makes him a low-end flex play on a weekly basis. That being said, he's worth a waiver add in leagues if Ingram's ankle issue ends up being a multi-week injury. Baltimore is on bye in Week 7 before they take on the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8.

J.K. Dobbins Not A Season-Long Starting Option At This Stage

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins entered the season as a borderline Top 100 fantasy selection due to his multifaceted abilities out of the backfield. Even with veteran Mark Ingram II holding down primary running back duties, Gus Edwards has now emerged as Ingrams primary backup, leaving Dobbins somewhat out in the cold. He played in a season-low 29 percent of the teams offensive snaps last week against Cincinnati, which is not nearly enough to merit season-long or DFS consideration at this stage. While fantasy managers in keepers formats may be inclined to find a reserve spot for Dobbins, he holds little year-to-year intrigue at this point in the season.

J.K. Dobbins Looks To Get Back On Track

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins seemed to be poised for a breakout after a two-touchdown performance in Week 1. However, since then, he has trended downward, racking up only eight touches for 70 yards over the team's previous three contests. While he may have some more effective performances moving ahead, possibly against the Bengals on Sunday, fantasy managers should hope for the best and expect the worst if they are forced to roll with the rookie in starting lineups in Week 5.

J.K. Dobbins Sees Six Touches In Week 4 Win

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins had a quiet day in a 31-17 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 4. Dobbins carried the ball five times for 16 yards and added a one-yard reception in the win. The rookie running back hasn't done much since his Week 1 outing where he scored twice and is seeing his upside capped by Baltimore's insistence on using a three-man committee in the backfield. Fantasy managers will want to try to hold onto Dobbins if possible as he has league-winning upside if Mark Ingram II gets hurt but he can't be trusted in starting lineups anytime soon. Baltimore faces the Cincinnati Bengals at home in Week 5.

J.K. Dobbins Is Ravens Leading Receiver In Week 3

General

On a night where the passing game never materialized, it was Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins who led the team in targets and yards, catching four passes for 38 yards. He added six rushing yards on one carry. The takeaways from this one are a bit of a mixed bag for fantasy managers. You like to see the targets, but who viable of an option can Dobbins really be if he's barely getting carries? He's still the highest upside back on this roster, but expect some uneven performances in the short term.

J.K. Dobbins Looking To Rebound In Week 3

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins will look to get back on track against the Chiefs on Monday night. After an impressive debut in Week 1 that resulted in the 21-year-old rushing for two scores against the Browns, he regressed in Week 2 against the Texans. While fantasy managers could be pleasantly surprised with a solid effort in Week 3, the rookie should only be in starting lineups for those with no other alternatives, primarily with Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram II, and Gus Edwards, also looking for touches.

J.K. Dobbins Regresses In Week 2

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins had two carries for 48 yards during the Week 2 victory over the Texans. He also caught a pass for 13 yards. After his two-touchdown performance last Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, the rookie wasn't featured as he conceded carries to the duo of Mark Ingram II and Gus Edwards. The former Buckeye still has plenty of stock moving ahead and should be considered a starter in deeper leagues, especially if he begins to emerge as the workhorse back over the team's next 14 contests. In the meantime, fantasy managers in other formats should continue stashing him as he likely has some more favorable performances on tap in the future.

J.K. Dobbins Hopes To Build Off Of Week 1 Performance

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins has a favorable upside on Sunday against the Texans. Although Mark Ingram II will potentially continue to snag some carries, the rookie managed to find the end zone twice against the Browns despite only touching the ball seven times. Dobbins is still a risky option, but he also has a high ceiling in Week 2, especially inside the five-yard line. For those in deeper leagues looking to throw a dart, the former second-round pick has plenty of potential against Houston to produce another effective fantasy performance.

J.K. Dobbins Scores Twice In Debut

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins ran for two touchdowns against the Browns on Sunday. While the rookie's seven rushes for 22 yards wasn't the most impressive showing, his ability to get his number called inside the five-yard line should raise the eyebrows of fantasy managers. As expected, Mark Ingram II was involved. Still, his 29 yards off of 10 attempts may open the door for the second-round pick to become more involved from a volume standpoint moving ahead, with that trend potentially starting against the Texans in Week 2. Dobbins will undoubtedly be a popular waiver wire target throughout the week, especially for those in need of a back in deeper formats.

J.K. Dobbins A Borderline Flex Option Against Cleveland

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins is a risky option in Week 1 against the Browns. Although it's expected that the rookie receives a prominent role in 2020, he may concede carries to Mark Ingram II, especially during goal-line opportunities. Until Dobbins' workload is revealed, his presence in fantasy lineups is risky, particularly for those who have other options. If needed, primarily in deeper formats, he is a borderline flex option, at best, but his activity and opportunity for work should be monitored on a week-to-week basis.

J.K. Dobbins Looking Dynamic In Camp

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins has looked "dynamic" in training camp, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. According to Zrebiec, Dobbins will have a role in Week 1's season opener against the Cleveland Browns. He wrote, "Mark Ingram remains the starter and Gus Edwards still figures to get his touches, but Dobbins will have a role in Week 1." Dobbins has boom/bust potential in fantasy leagues depending on how his drafters want to view his situation. Fellow running backs Nick Chubb and Miles Sanders both overcame veterans ahead of them on the depth chart in the previous two seasons to make an impact in fantasy. Of course, Ingram is a more productive runner at this stage of his career than either back Sanders or Chubb supplanted. Dobbins is best drafted as an RB3, although an ADP in the late-sixth round is a bit rich at this moment.

J.K. Dobbins Looking Explosive In Practice

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins is turning heads in practice already. On Monday, in the team's first padded practice, the second-round rookie is reportedly looking "explosive" and is getting to the edges "fast and hard". ESPN beat reporter Jamison Hensley even went so far as to compare Dobbins to former Baltimore star running back Ray Rice. Dobbins will most likely open the season behind veteran Mark Ingram II but it is apparent that the rookie has plenty of long-term potential. He is a building-block piece in dynasty leagues and a low-end RB3 with upside in redraft formats.

J.K. Dobbins Highly Motivated

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins is using his slide into the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft as motivation for his upcoming rookie season. In speaking with reporters in a 15-minute Zoom session, Dobbins stated, "I don't need any fuel but it added fuel. It was kind of shocking but I fell to the right team." Dobbins clearly feels he belonged in the first round of the draft, although his inability to participate in the combine back in February may have contributed to the slide. Dobbins will almost surely open the season behind veteran Mark Ingram II but the rookie has massive upside, especially if Ingram misses time throughout the year. Dobbins is a blue-chip building block as a dynasty prospect and an upside RB3 in redraft.

Ravens Not Worried About Finding Work For J.K. Dobbins

General

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman recently stated that he is not worried about finding a way to keep all of the weapons in the team's backfield involved. The Ravens used a second-round pick to draft Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins in the draft in April, adding him to a crowded RB room that includes Mark Ingram II, Justice Hill, and Gus Edwards. Roman stated, "I don't think you can have enough really good running backs, and we've certainly got a plethora of them." Dobbins is likely to open the season behind Ingram but could play his way into a meaningful role as the season goes on. A best-case scenario for fantasy gamers who draft Dobbins could be what happened for Miles Sanders in Philadelphia last year or Nick Chubb in Cleveland two years ago. As rookies, both of the aforementioned backs opened the season stuck behind a veteran starter before seizing the lead role about halfway through the year. Dobbins is best treated as an RB3 with upside for redraft leagues. Dobbins has multi-year RB1 potential in dynasty formats as Ingram is unlikely to be with the team beyond the 2020 season.

J.K. Dobbins A Good Fit In Baltimore

General

Baltimore Ravens rookie running back J.K. Dobbins, the 55th overall pick in the second round, had the third-most yards after contact (2,652) in college since 2017 and the third-most last season alone (1,208), according to Pro Football Focus. He had 31 carries of 15-plus yards last season, which was the most in college football, and forced 73 missed tackles on rushes. Sixteen of those missed tackles came in the Big Ten title game win over Wisconsin -- the third-most missed tackles forced by any player in a single game last year. Dobbins is a perfect fit with a Baltimore team that loves to run the football, but Dobbins will lose plenty of touches to Mark Ingram II and Lamar Jackson. The 21-year-old's ceiling might be as a flex in his rookie season, but he's an excellent handcuff for Ingram owners.

J.K. Dobbins An Underrated Fantasy Asset?

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins could prove to be a useful fantasy asset in 2020, especially for those who select him late in redraft formats. While Mark Ingram II is expected to be still involved on the offensive end, especially when the team lines up on the goal line, the rookie may find himself progressively gaining touches as the season progresses. The 21-year-old broke a school record in his final year at Ohio State in 2019, finishing with just over 2,000 rushing yards. He may not make an immediate impact; however, he could gain a more prominent role down the stretch or if Ingram were to succumb to injury at some point during the season.

J.K. Dobbins Among Favorites For Rookie Of The Year

General

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins is a favorite to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, according to BetMGM. The second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft currently has more favorable odds over highly touted rookies Henry Ruggs III, Jalen Reagor, and Justin Jefferson, despite GM Eric DeCosta indicating that the former Buckeye would be a part of a "four-headed monster." While Dobbins' place on the list isn't cemented, it may increase his fantasy stock moving ahead in all formats. The 21-year-old amassed 4,459 rushing yards and 38 touchdowns throughout three seasons at Ohio State and could emerge as a viable contender to dethrone No. 1 option Mark Ingram II as the team's primary workhorse this season.

Ravens Sign J.K. Dobbins

Transactions

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins agreed to a four-year deal with the team on Thursday. The rookie was considered a steal by many, having been selected 55th overall in the NFL Draft, and is expected to share reps with the trio of Mark Ingram II, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill this upcoming season. While the former Buckeye may not have significant week-to-week fantasy value in redraft formats outside of being classified as a handcuff, at least initially, he is someone to target in dynasty formats as 2020 may prove to be the last year for Ingram with the team. Dobbins ran for 2,003 yards and 21 touchdowns during his final season at Ohio State.

Ravens View J.K. Dobbins As A Three-Down Back

General

Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta told reporters that the team views second-round running back J.K. Dobbins as a three-down back. DeCosta stated, "We think he's a three-down back. He's been extremely durable. He's an outstanding fit for what we like to do." Dobbins will have to split work with veteran Mark Ingram II in his rookie season but he should be the team's clear-cut primary back as early as 2021. The former Ohio State star was one of the best RPO running backs as a Buckeye in college and should mesh seamlessly with dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson in Baltimore's backfield. Dobbins is worthy of a top-five pick in dynasty rookie drafts.
