  • J.K. Dobbins Unavailable For Saturday's Practice

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) has been held out of practice Saturday as the team continues to exercise caution in reinserting him to the mix. Head coach John Harbaugh recently admitted that Dobbins isn't a surefire option for the team out of the backfield in Week 1 as he makes his way back from a torn ACL that knocked him out for the entire 2021 campaign. The expectation is for Dobbins to rejoin practice Monday. Fellow running back Gus Edwards (knee) is also a question mark for Week 1, but Dobbins would be the bell cow of the Baltimore backfield if cleared. After compiling 805 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground as a rookie in '21, Dobbins would be a strong RB2 option in most fantasy formats, even coming off the injury. For now, Mike Davis, Nate McCrary and Justice Hill figure to all factor prominently into the Ravens' rushing game plans.

  • J.K. Dobbins Must Clear Hurdles Before Being Cleared

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) still isn't a lock for the regular season opener against the Jets. Head coach John Harbaugh recently shed some light on the topic during a SiriusXM interview, commenting the next two weeks will "tell the story" regarding Dobbins' Week 1 potential. The former Ohio State Buckeye will need to show progress surrounding his surgically repaired knee, specifically its range of motion, quickness, and how it extends during strides. With Dobbins and Gus Edwards (knee) uncertain to be active to start the year, Mike Davis, Tyler Badie, and Justice Hill could see more snaps versus New York and potentially beyond.

  • J.K. Dobbins Activated From PUP List Monday

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday and is on track to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season against the New York Jets, according to sources. Dobbins has been saying all along that he was ready to practice in training camp, but the Ravens brought him along slowly after he missed all of last year with a torn ACL and other ligament damage in his knee. Gus Edwards (knee), who also missed all of 2021 with a torn ACL, remains behind Dobbins in his recovery. The 23-year-old Dobbins figures to be Baltimore's lead back in a run-heavy offensive attack if he's healthy this year, making him the most attractive RB in fantasy on this team. He'll continue to rise on draft boards as an RB2 if he doesn't suffer any setbacks between now and Week 1.

  • J.K. Dobbins Close To Returning?

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins "is pushing" to get back on the field and will probably be the next player activated from the PUP list, head coach John Harbaugh told Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. The team is expected to re-evaluate his status on Monday. Dobbins is recovering from an ACL tear and other damage, but it appears that he is nearing a return to the field and should be ready for Week 1. As a rookie in 2020, he registered 805 rushing yards, 120 receiving yards, and nine touchdowns. He sports an ADP of 64 and should be viewed as a mid-range RB2 this coming season.

  • J.K. Dobbins Pleading His Case To Practice

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) appeared on several occasions to be trying to convince team officials to green light him to return to practice at training camp on Wednesday. He was seen having animated conversations with general manager Eric DeCosta, team president Sashi Brown and outside linebacker Justin Houston. Head coach John Harbaugh said Dobbins has made it clear he thinks he's ready to practice, but "that's up to the doctors." The 23-year-old began camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list after missing all of last year. Although his knee injury was more serious than Gus Edwards', it looks like Dobbins is on track to return before his backfield mate. Both RBs are questionable for Week 1 at this point, but Dobbins is expected to be the primary back in Baltimore's run-first offense once he's healthy.

  • Ravens Put J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards On PUP List

    The Baltimore Ravens placed running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee), left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle), outside linebacker Tyus Bowser (Achilles), cornerback Marcus Peters (knee) and safety Ar'Darius Washington (foot) on the Physically Unable to Perform list to open training camp. Both Dobbins and Edwards suffered torn ACLs -- Dobbins also had LCL and meniscus damage -- and missed all of 2021. Dobbins has been adamant that he'll be ready for Week 1, but there's no guarantee that will happen, making him a risky low-end RB2/high-end RB3 for fantasy managers. The 23-year-old should be Baltimore's top backfield option when healthy in a run-first offense, but his health is a big question mark right now. The Ravens signed veteran Mike Davis for depth this offseason.

  • J.K. Dobbins Adamant He'll Be Ready For Week 1

    In a response to an earlier report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) isn't a sure thing to be ready for Week 1 this year, Dobbins responding by writing, "Okay I'm tired of being quiet come to me for your source @RapSheet because I might not even go on PUP because that's how good my rehab is going and I'm damn sure going to be ready for Week 1." Dobbins missed all of 2021 when he tore his ACL and also suffered meniscus and LCL damage last August. His status at the beginning of training camp at the end of July will tell us a lot. If healthy for Week 1, the 23-year-old should be the leader of Baltimore backfield, although he will have to share work with Gus Edwards, who is also returning from an ACL tear.

  • J.K. Dobbins Not A Lock To Be Ready For Week 1

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) hasn't had any setbacks, but his injury is a serious one, and he's not a lock to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. The Ravens also have no incentive to rush him back after they protected themselves with veteran Mike Davis in free agency. Dobbins suffered a torn ACL and damage to his meniscus and LCL in late August of last year and missed all of the 2021 season. Baltimore also drafted rookies Tyler Badie and Ricky Person and have Gus Edwards (knee), although he's also coming off a lost season due to a torn ACL. Dobbins should be heavily involved in the Ravens backfield once he does return, but he's shaping up as a risky low-end RB2 in fantasy drafts this fall.

  • J.K. Dobbins Unlikely To Play In Preseason

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee), who tore the ACL in his left knee in the final preseason game last fall, is highly unlikely to play in the preseason this year. There have been reports that Dobbins also sustained LCL damage to his knee, although the Ravens have only confirmed the torn ACL. The 23-year-old was mostly a bystander during organized team activities, although he did catch some balls from the Jugs machine. There has been outside pessimism about Dobbins' availability and effectiveness in 2022, but the Ravens say he's on track and expect him to be a factor. The most logical expectation is for him to start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Dobbins will be an extremely risky RB2/3 selection for fantasy managers coming off his serious knee injury.

  • J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards Have A Chance To Be Ready

    Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said it's too early to say whether running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee) and offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle) will be ready on Day 1 of training camp next month. Harbaugh said they all have "a chance," but he's more "hopeful" for Week 1 of the regular season. Edwards has an easier path to be ready on time, since Dobbins is recovering from an ACL tear and LCL damage to his knee. Assuming both are at full health, Dobbins is the more attractive fantasy option as a risk/reward, low-end RB2. Edwards probably won't be drafted in standard-sized leagues, while former Falcons running back Mike Davis will only be an option if neither Dobbins nor Edwards are ready to go for Week 1.

  • J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards To Have Workloads Managed

    Baltimore Ravens running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee) are expected to be somewhat limited early in the season. Both players are coming off season-ending ACL injuries from last season. That being said, the Ravens are going to be cautious with both players, which means they'll likely keep more running backs on the roster. Tyler Badie could very well get some early season action with the Ravens limiting Dobbins and Edwards. He could be someone worth stashing on the bench while this situation gets sorted out. Fantasy managers should prepare for Dobbins and Edwards to have slow starts to the season as the team works them back into the flow.

  • Ravens Optimistic That J.K. Dobbins Will Be A Factor

    The Baltimore Ravens are optimistic that running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) will be a factor this season, whether it's in Week 1 or later. However, the Ravens will be prepared if Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who is also coming off a torn ACL, can't find their pre-injury form early in 2022. Fantasy managers should be concerned about whether Dobbins and Edwards will be effective after their knee injuries last year, but if either is fully healthy, you can expect the Ravens to run plenty. Given the uncertainty with those two players, the Ravens brought in Mike Davis in free agency and drafted rookie Tyler Badie for extra depth. Justice Hill could also have a great chance to make the final roster.
