  • John Harbaugh Defends Run-Heavy Approach

    Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Wednesday that he's "not apologizing" for quarterback Lamar Jackson's style of play or the team's run-first approach on offense. Baltimore scored just three points in the Divisional Round loss to the Bills, and offensive coordinator Greg Roman received criticism for what looked like a simplistic passing attack. The Ravens finished last in the NFL in passing for the first time since 2003. Harbaugh points out that they finished seventh in scoring in 2020, averaging 29.3 points per game. While Baltimore doesn't air the football out like other teams, they've also led the league in rushing each of the last two years, and Jackson has been a big part of that. Despite his limitations as a passer, Jackson remains a high-end QB1 for fantasy managers entering the 2021 season. Running back J.K. Dobbins will only see his stock rise as well in one of the NFL's most run-heavy offenses heading into his second season.

  • J.K. Dobbins A Strong Fantasy Option Against Bills

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins saw his carries drop into single digits last week for the first time since Week 10, but the rookie rusher should be considered a top RB play in DFS contests for Saturday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo's run defense has proven to have some holes in it, as they allowed the 13th-most fantasy points to the position during the regular season. Gus Edwards could siphon off some work, but Dobbins is clearly the running back to play in this backfield this week because of his upside.

  • J.K. Dobbins Extends Scoring Streak

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins recorded 43 yards and a touchdown off nine touches during the postseason win over the Titans on Sunday. He also caught a pass for negative yardage. With the Ravens once again turning to the run, the rookie capitalized by recording his seventh-straight game with at least one trip to the end zone. Though Gus Edwards and Lamar Jackson, who combined for 24 carries on the afternoon, are still in the picture, Dobbins has significant upside moving ahead, especially when inside the red zone.

  • Plenty Of Buzz Surrounds J.K. Dobbins

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins has received plenty of attention as of late. Although the rookie got off to a relatively slow start in 2020, he has picked things up by racking up at least 11 carries and a touchdown in each of his previous six contests. Although Gus Edwards and Lamar Jackson may likely insert themselves into the running game against the Titans, just like they have done all season, Dobbins should be the No. 1 option out of the backfield and during goal-line plays. The 22-year-old ran for 70 yards and a score off of 15 carries and caught a few passes during the overtime loss to Tennessee back in Week 11, so fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if he has a similar performance.

  • J.K. Dobbins Ends Regular Season With A Splendid Performance

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins finished with 160 yards and two touchdowns off only 13 attempts during the win over Cincinnati in Week 17. The rookie had his best performance of the season on Sunday while also finding the end zone in each of his last six outings. Although the team opted to utilize the committee approach out of the backfield this year, Dobbins established himself as the No. 1 option over Gus Edwards and Mark Ingram II, especially toward the end of the 2020 campaign. Expect the 22-year-old to get plenty of attention from managers in 2021 fantasy drafts as he may find himself ranked within the top-10 spots at his position.

  • J.K. Dobbins A Fringe RB1 Against Cincinnati

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins has been on a tear after a quiet start to his rookie campaign. Dobbins has produced at least 50 rushing yards and a touchdown in five straight games, averaging 5.4 yards per carry in that span. With Mark Ingram II (illness) expected to be inactive and Gus Edwards (back), a bit banged up, we could potentially see Dobbins in a workhorse role. His career-high in carries so far is 15, though he should have a good chance of hitting that number on Sunday against the Bengals' 25th-ranked run defense. Look at him as a strong RB2 who could very well run his way into a top-12 finish at the position in Week 17.

  • J.K. Dobbins Does It Again On Sunday

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins racked up 77 yards and a touchdown off of 11 attempts during the win over the New York Giants on Sunday. The rookie managed to find the end zone for the fifth time in as many games. Although Dobbins continues to concede touches to both Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards, he has established himself as a viable every week fantasy option in all formats. Fantasy managers should keep him rolling against the Bengals in the final week of the regular season as he has a strong chance to make it six in a row.

  • J.K. Dobbins Finds The End Zone Once Again

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins ran for 64 yards and a touchdown off 14 attempts during the win over Jacksonville on Sunday. He also had a catch for 17 yards. The rookie continued to roll in Week 15 by finding the end zone for the fourth time in as many games. He conceded carries to Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards once again, but he should continue to eat enough to remain fantasy-relevant moving ahead. Keep him starting against the Giants in Week 16.

  • J.K. Dobbins Looking For Another Touchdown In Week 15

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins continues to benefit from the team's commitment to the rushing attack. Despite being locked up in a timeshare with Gus Edwards and Lamar Jackson, the rookie has made a consistent dent on the fantasy end by finding the end zone in each of his last three outings. For those in need of a back with upside, fantasy managers should keep the 22-year-old in mind against a lackluster Jaguars Defense on Sunday.

  • J.K. Dobbins Leads The Way On Monday Night

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins ran for 53 yards and a score off of 13 attempts during the Monday night win over the Browns. The rookie led the team in carries in this one, racking up six more than Gus Edwards, who also had a stellar outing of his own by producing a multi-touchdown performance. Dobbins has now found the end zone in his previous three contests and with the Ravens committed to the run, he may continue to get plenty of work moving ahead. He is worth a start in virtually all fantasy formats, regardless of size, against the Jaguars in Week 15.

  • J.K. Dobbins Puts Forth Solid Effort On Tuesday

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins ran for 71 yards and a score off 11 carries during the Tuesday night win over the Dallas Cowboys. With Baltimore focusing on the run in this one, the rookie was still able to put up some numbers despite Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram II, and Gus Edwards combining for 26 carries. While the backfield will likely remain crowded for the remainder of the 2020 campaign, Dobbins still has upside, primarily if he continues to get opportunities inside the red zone. Fantasy managers must also acknowledge, however, that his downside can be equally as disappointing.

  • J.K. Dobbins Should Lead Ravens Backfield

    Baltimore Ravens rookie running back J.K. Dobbins is off the COVID list and should be active on Tuesday when the Ravens face the Dallas Cowboys. Considering Dobbins worked as the lead back the last time he was on the field and Gus Edwards had just 10 rushing yards in Dobbins's place against the Steelers Wednesday, we should probably go ahead and consider Dobbins the No. 1 guy here in a backfield that's trending out of being a committee. The Cowboys allow the second-most rushing yards per game to opposing running backs, making this a great matchup for Dobbins. Consider him a high-end RB2.

  • J.K. Dobbins Activated, Robert Griffin III To IR

    The Baltimore Ravens activated rookie running back J.K. Dobbins, linebacker Pernell McPhee and centers Patrick Mekari and Matt Skura from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday while placing quarterback Robert Griffin III (hamstring) on Injured Reserve in a corresponding move. Cornerback Anthony Averett and wide receiver Chris Moore were also activated from IR. Dobbins missed Week 12 but should return as the lead back in Week 13 against the Cowboys on Tuesday and will be an upside RB2 for fantasy managers hoping to get into the fantasy playoffs. Dallas is also allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to RBs. Griffin was forgettable on Wednesday against Pittsburgh and will now miss at least the next three games. If Lamar Jackson doesn't get cleared from the COVID-19 protocols this weekend, Trace McSorley would start under center against the Cowboys.

  • J.K. Dobbins, Mark Ingram II Inactive Wednesday

    Baltimore Ravens running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram II are not active for Wednesday's game against the Steelers despite being eligible to return from the COVID-19 list. Dobbins and Ingram didn't travel with the team on Tuesday night because it was the final day of their 10-day quarantine after testing positive for the virus. They haven't been put on the active roster and neither has practiced since the overtime loss to the Titans 10 days ago. The rookie Dobbins figures to take over as the team's lead back down the stretch, while Ingram has been slowly phased out of the offense. Gus Edwards will get the start against Pittsburgh and has rushed for 217 yards and a touchdown in his last two games against the Steelers. Justice Hill will back up Edwards, who will have RB2 upside for fantasy managers that stuck with him despite Baltimore's COVID-19 outbreak this week.

  • Mark Ingram II, J.K. Dobbins Not Expected To Play Wednesday

    Baltimore Ravens running backs Mark Ingram II and rookie J.K. Dobbins are eligible to come off the COVID-19 list before Wednesday's game against the Steelers, but neither of them are expected to play. Gus Edwards will get the start. It's a tough matchup against the undefeated Steelers, but Edwards has RB2 upside for fantasy managers that waited this one out in Week 12. The Steelers Defense allows the third-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs, including only five rushing scores all year, but Edwards should have a decent floor because of the expected volume he should receive. Baltimore could run the ball even more, too, with inclement weather expected and with quarterback Lamar Jackson also out due to COVID-19.

  • J.K. Dobbins, Mark Ingram II Not Guaranteed To Play

    Baltimore Ravens running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram II are both eligible to be activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list prior to the Week 12 game against the Steelers on Wednesday, but it's not a given that either will play. Both players have been isolated since testing positive for the virus on Nov. 22 and aren't allowed to fly on the team plane on Tuesday night. At this point, if you have Dobbins or Ingram on your roster, you've likely benched them for other running backs that already played in Week 12. Even if they both play, Gus Edwards could see the majority of backfield touches and will be the best fantasy play of the trio. Those that picked up Edwards in order to start him this week are hoping that neither Dobbins nor Ingram suit up in the tough matchup against the undefeated Steelers.

  • J.K. Dobbins, Mark Ingram II On Track To Play Wednesday

    Baltimore Ravens running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram II appeared destined to miss the team's Week 12 contest versus Pittsburgh after positive COVID-19 tests last week. But with the game being pushed to Wednesday afternoon due to the COVID-19 outbreak within the Ravens organization, both Dobbins and Ingram will have met the league's conditions of 10-day self-isolation. Gus Edwards had been in line to see a significant workload out of the backfield, especially with quarterbackLamar Jacksonout of the mix due to COVID-19, but the return of Ingram and Dobbins essentially zaps Edwards of some RB2 upside, even as the group figures to spearhead the offense against a stout Steelers Defense. None of the three has emerged as a consistent season-long fantasy contributor at this stage, making any of the group a risky play this week, if the game is even played at all.

  • Ravens Dealing With COVID-19 Outbreak

    The Baltimore Ravens have had five players and four staffers test positive for COVID-19 this week, according to sources. The game on Thanksgiving on Thursday night against the division-rival Steelers is still on, but a source warned that more positives could mean postponing it. It's unclear if the game would be pushed back to the weekend or Monday night or if it would be postponed entirely for Week 12. Either way, fantasy managers need to keep an eye out for more updates, especially if you plan on starting any players from that game. Ravens running backs Mark Ingram II and rookie J.K. Dobbins are two of the players that tested positive, and they will be out against Pittsburgh. If the game is played this week, Gus Edwards has RB2 upside, even in the tough matchup.

  • Mark Ingram II, J.K. Dobbins Test Positive For COVID-19

    Baltimore Ravens running backs Mark Ingram II and rookie J.K. Dobbins have tested positive for COVID-19 and will go on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, according to sources. With Baltimore playing on Thursday night against the undefeated Steelers in Week 12, both Ingram and Dobbins will be inactive. That means that Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will be the two primary backs in the Ravens backfield for the important divisional matchup this week. Edwards had just three carries for six yards in the Week 11 loss to the Titans in overtime, but he figures to be the featured back against Pittsburgh. The Steelers allow the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the running back position, but Edwards will have RB2 upside with both Ingram and Dobbins sidelined.

  • J.K. Dobbins Finds End Zone In Week 11

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins rushed 15 times for 70 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. He also caught a pair of passes for 15 yards. Dobbins has received double-digit carries in three of the past four games now and has pretty clearly taken on the role as the lead back here, with his 41 snaps leading the running back corps here significantly. While we can't guarantee this trend continues, Dobbins is moving into the fantasy RB2 tier right now.

  • J.K. Dobbins Sees Role Dialed Back Upon Mark Ingram's Return

    Baltimore Ravens rookie running back J.K. Dobbins received just five carries and made one reception in Sunday's loss to New England, a significant step back in his role from where he sat while Mark Ingram II was absent due to injury. While Dobbins has yet to ascend to the fervor around his fantasy stock that emanated from his two-touchdown debut performance back in Week 1, he received double-digit carries during Weeks 8 and 9, even logging his first 100-yard rushing performance. But with Ingram active Sunday -- along with the continued running threat of quarterback Lamar Jackson -- Dobbins was lost in the shuffle as all three backs, including Gus Edwards, effectively cancelled each other out. Those in season-long keeper formats may be able to hold onto a bench spot for Dobbins with an eye toward 2021, but at this stage, the Ravens backfield situation is approaching untenable for any of the trio, specifically Dobbins.

  • J.K. Dobbins Underwhelms Against Colts

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins ran for 30 yards off 12 carries during the win over Indianapolis on Sunday. He also had two catches for five yards. For the second consecutive week, the rookie received an enhanced role due to the absence of Mark Ingram II (ankle), who is considered week-to-week. While he split carries once again with Gus Edwards, who had 11 attempts for 23 yards, neither player reached the level of efficiency that they had in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both men should continue to serve as the team's one-two-punch out of the backfield until Ingram can make his way back, which could come as early as next weekend against the Patriots for a Sunday Night Football showdown. Until then, Dobbins and Gus Edwards should be considered acceptable options with upside for those looking to fill an injury or bye week void.

  • J.K. Dobbins An Adequate Option In Week 9

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins has fantasy appeal in Week 9 against the Colts. With Mark Ingram II (ankle), who is listed as doubtful, likely out on Sunday, the rookie will probably split carries once again with Gus Edwards. The 21-year-old thrived last weekend against Pittsburgh while filling in for Ingram, rushing for 113 yards off 15 attempts for a healthy 7.5 YPC. While Edwards also had an impressive outing, Dobbins should remain the primary beneficiary in the team's run-heavy approach, making him an ideal option for those fantasy managers looking to fill a void.

  • J.K. Dobbins Leads Ravens In Rushing In Week 8

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins finished Week 8 against the Steelers with 15 carries for 113 yards. He also added a catch for eight yards. With Mark Ingram II (ankle) out of the lineup, the rookie split touches with Gus Edwards, who had 16 attempts for 87 yards and a score. Ingram is expected to miss some time while working his way back from a high-ankle sprain, so look for Dobbins and Edwards to continue to divide the workload moving ahead. Fantasy managers should snag him off the waiver wire if he is still available.

  • J.K. Dobbins Has Upside In Week 8

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins will potentially see an expanded role in Week 8 against the Steelers. With Mark Ingram II (ankle) expected to miss a week or more, the rookie will likely split carries with Gus Edwards II against a formidable Pittsburgh defensive unit. Although Edwards could see more carries, Dobbins may do most of his damage catching passes out of the backfield while also serving as a threat during goal-line opportunities.
