Justice Hill Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh told reporters Wednesday that RB Keaton Mitchell is not expected back until "sometime during the season," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Harbaugh did add that Mitchell's "on schedule" in his recovery from a mid-December ACL tear but won't participate in training camp.

Ravens RB Dalvin Cook has been elevated from the practice squad to the active roster. RB Melvin Gordon was released in a corresponding move. Cook is expected to play in Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Texans, according to his agency. Cook was abysmal with the Jets this season and joined the Ravens just a couple of weeks ago, so we're not optimistic about his odds of making a major impact this weekend. But his presence certainly doesn't help the fantasy outlooks of RBs Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.

Ex-Jets RB Dalvin Cook is expected to sign with the Ravens ahead of the playoffs, according to multiple reports. That's a sensible addition for a Baltimore backfield down to Gus Edwards and Justice Hill as meaningful contributors. We'll see how Cook fits in. But unless Ravens coaches say so, there's no reason to expect Cook to leap ahead of either Edwards or Hill in role. Cook averaged just 4.5 carries and 1.0 receptions per game across 15 appearances this year with a Jets offense that hasn't been good. His 3.2 yards per rush and 5.2 yards per catch both sit well below his career marks in those categories. If you're playing playoff fantasy football, you can stash Cook late. We like the Ravens' chances of making a deep run. Just don't expect big things from Cook.

Monday night’s game vs. the 49ers gave fantasy managers a chance to see how the Ravens would split their RB workload after rookie Keaton Mitchell sustained a season-ending ACL injury in Week 15. Baltimore ended up favoring Justice Hill, who saw a team-high 13 touches and logged his second-highest snap share (62%) of the season. Teammate Gus Edwards was also involved (70 total yards, 1 rushing TD) and saw all three of the Ravens’ RB touches from inside the five-yard line on Monday night, per PFF. Managers looking ahead to Week 17 can feel good about starting both Hill and Edwards as RB3/flex options, though it’d be better to lean toward Edwards if you’re picking between them. They’ll be set to face a Dolphins defense that ranks as the sixth-toughest matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed, though Miami is tied for seventh-most red zone rushing TDs allowed (14) this season. Banking on Edwards, the goal-line option, is the more optimal play.

The Ravens elevated RB Melvin Gordon from the practice squad. He'll slide in as Baltimore's No. 3 RB behind Gus Edwards and Justice Hill following Keaton Mitchell's season-ending knee injury. Gordon carried 13 times for 53 yards across a pair of appearances back in Weeks 3 and 4, when Hill and Mitchell were hurt. Gordon can be left on fantasy waiver wires.

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell tore his left ACL in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's win over the Jaguars. It looked like that kind of injury at the time, and HC John Harbaugh said after the game they expected Mitchell to miss the season. Multiple reports say the Ravens are optimistic for a full recovery. The timing, though, could challenge the start to Mitchell's second NFL season -- especially considering the importance of speed and explosiveness to his game. The rookie certainly remains worth stashing on dynasty rosters where possible. Mitchell won't be more than an end-of-draft flier (if that) for early 2024 best ball drafting, though. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill figure to split the backfield the rest of the way, including the playoffs. We'd also bet on Baltimore bringing RB Melvin Gordon back from the practice squad. He logged 13 carries and 3 targets across two games early this season, when the Ravens were dealing with multiple RB injuries (including Mitchell's first IR stint).

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said after Sunday night's win over the Jaguars that RB Keaton. Mitchell's left knee injury is expected to end the rookie's season. The team hasn't yet supplied details of the injury, but that's likely awaiting a Monday MRI. The rookie left the field with a lot of help, though, putting no weight on the joint and rode a cart to the locker room. We'll see what kind of return timeline Mitchell faces once the details become clear. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill worked near evenly after Mitchell left in the fourth quarter. Each had four carries before Edwards handled all three runs on Baltimore's final possession to run out the clock. Both will likely land in RB3 territory of our rankings for a Week 16 matchup with the 49ers. A Week 17 home date with the Dolphins looks a bit more RB-friendly.

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell injured his left knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's game vs. the Jaguars. He took a cart back to the locker room and was quickly ruled out. This has the looks of a significant injury, but we'll update Mitchell's status when we learn more. His absence leaves Baltimore's backfield to Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards led the team with 11 carries in Sunday's loss to the Browns. He managed just 24 yards -- his lowest total all season -- but scored for the fourth straight game. That last stat has been key to Edwards' fantasy value (and his risk). The biggest positive from Sunday was Edwards reclaiming the backfield rush lead after resting through the second half of blowout win in Week 9. His 11 attempts vs. Cleveland more than doubled the combined total (5) of Keaton Mitchell and Justice Hill. The schedule looks merely decent the next weeks, before a Week 13 bye. And Baltimore has no strongly positive rushing matchups the rest of the way. That could give Edwards some sell potential, but don't be afraid to just hold him for the TD upside if you can't get a good return.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that he expects to keep RBs Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and Keaton Mitchell involved going forward. “Those three backs are gonna be all playing a lot," Harbaugh said. "I’m sure there will be a rotation.” Harbaugh added that snaps will be determined by which RB has the hot hand and who's not tired, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. Mitchell certainly earned a role going forward with his 138-yard, one-TD effort in the win over Seattle. Note that, before QB Lamar Jackson was pulled in the fourth quarter, Mitchell and Hill had both tallied eight opportunities (carries + targets) to Edwards' five. If this is truly a three-way split, it'll be tough to count on any of these guys as more than RB3 or flex plays. We'll keep a close eye on the backfield usage this weekend.

Ravens RB Justice Hill tallied a team-high 13 carries in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. He took those for just 40 yards (3.1 per rush), though, ranking fourth on the team in that category. Don't read too much into that workload, though. Hill, Gus Edwards, and rookie Keaton Mitchell all finished the first half with 4 carries. Edwards ran just one more time after the break before sitting out the rest of the game. Mitchell led Hill 9-8 in carries before Hill claimed the team's final 5 RB rushing attempts of the game. That came with QB Tyler Huntley in the game, after Baltimore pulled Lamar Jackson amid a lopsided victory. Hill also drew just a single target, which fell incomplete. It was Mitchell's first game of significant use. And we're guessing the Ravens took the opportunity to rest Edwards for the second half because of the toe issue that kept him out of Wednesday's practice. Hill will need to do more to become a fantasy option again. Mitchell looks more interesting for Week 10 waivers.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards received a team-leading 14 carries for 64 rushing yards and a TD in Week 7 vs. the Lions. He also caught a long 80-yard pass on his lone target in the contest. RB Justice Hill wasn’t as involved on Sunday, seeing just 5 total touches and 48 total yards. Next week’s matchup vs. the Cardinals should be a better spot for both RBs to produce.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards saw a team-leading 16 carries for 41 rushing yards in Week 6 vs. the Titans. He also added 1 reception for 12 yards as a pass-catcher in the contest. RB Justice Hill saw his fair share of work on Sunday with 8 carries for 35 rushing yards and 3 catches. Neither back had a particularly explosive performance, but fantasy managers can be happy with the RB3/flex-level output. Edwards and Hill will face a stingy Lions’ run defense in Week 7.

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (shoulder) is active for this morning's game against the Titans. The rookie makes his NFL debut alongside Justice Hill and Gus Edwards in Baltimore's backfield. Mitchell shouldn't be in season-long fantasy lineups but might be worth stashing in deeper leagues as we monitor his role.

Ravens RB Justice Hill (foot, hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Steelers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. But Hill is a risky fantasy play after totaling just three carries on seven snaps last week.

Ravens RB Justice Hill (foot, hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Steelers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so he should play. But Hill would be a risky fantasy start after totaling just three carries on seven snaps last week.

Ravens RB Justice Hill was limited in Wednesday's practice with foot and hamstring injuries. He played just seven snaps with the foot injury last week and now has this hamstring issue. We'll see what Hill does in practice over the next couple of days, but he's not looking like a good Week 5 fantasy play.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards carried the ball 15 times for 48 yards in Week 4's win over the Browns. Teammate Justice Hill saw very little involvement in this contest, seeing just 3 carries for 33 yards and a goose egg in the receiving column. Perhaps his toe injury still bothers him, but Hill losing that much work to Edwards is a red flag. It's worth mentioning that rookie RB Keaton Mitchell is eligible to come off IR next week. He's a smaller change-of-pace back that performed very well for the Ravens in the preseason. Given Hill's fading opportunities, Mitchell might be a name to consider stashing in deeper formats. Next week, the Ravens will go on the road to face the Steelers.

Ravens RB Justice Hill (foot) is active for today’s game vs. the Browns. He was a full participant in Friday's practice, so that foot shouldn’t be a big issue. Hill figures to split backfield duties with RB Gus Edwards today.
