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.

The Ravens released RB Corey Clement. He lasted just a few weeks with the team. With RB Gus Edwards (knee) likely to open the season on the PUP list, the Ravens are currently slated to head into Week 1 with RBs J.K. Dobbins, Mike Davis, Justice Hill and Tyler Badie.

The Ravens PR staff released the 1st "unofficial" depth chart of the year Friday, with RB Mike Davis the top active player at the position. That still slots him behind J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who remain on the PUP. Justice Hill, Corey Clement, Nate McCrary and rookie Tyler Badie follow, in that order. These depth charts are notoriously unreliable, especially ahead of preseason debuts for nearly all teams. We'll be watching to see if Badie -- in particular -- works in earlier once the exhibition contests get rolling. In the meantime, Davis is worth considering as a low-owned, end-of-draft option for best-ball tournament rosters.

Ravens RB Justice Hill has "built momentum" early in training camp, The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec writes. "He’s looked quick, showing no signs of the Achilles tear that sidelined him all last season," Zrebiec adds. "He’s also caught quite a few balls out of the backfield." Baltimore's backfield is a fluid situation with J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards iffy for the start of the season. Hill is battling with Mike Davis and Tyler Badie for positioning on the depth chart behind Dobbins and Edwards.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Ravens RB Justice Hill suffered an Achilles' tendon tear in practice "recently" and will miss the season. Hill didn't appear headed for a big role, but he was 1 of just 3 RBs remaining on the Baltimore roster. The Ravens hosted RBs Le'Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman and Elijah Holyfield on Monday, according to SI's Albert Breer. We expect the team to add someone. Whoever that winds up being figures to slot behind Gus Edwards and Ty'Son Williams on the depth chart -- at least initially.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley confirms that Ty'Son Williams is now the Ravens' #2 RB. The former undrafted free agent has passed RB Justice Hill on the depth chart. While Hill has missed parts of August with an ankle injury, Williams has impressed on the practice field and with a 5.4 yards-per-carry average in preseason action. We'll see if Baltimore makes an addition to the backfield over the next couple of weeks, but Williams is worth considering as a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

According to multiple reports, the Ravens are assuming RB J.K. Dobbins will miss the season because of the left knee injury he suffered Saturday night. The 2nd-year back is having an MRI to confirm the diagnosis today, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team believes Dobbins tore the ACL. His loss obviously boosts Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and Ty'Son Williams. Don't be surprised, though, if Baltimore adds another RB as rosters get trimmed down around the league.

Update: Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Dobbins is officially out for the season with an ACL tear.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley says Ravens rookie RB J.K. Dobbins will "be the primary backup in 2020 to Mark Ingram." Backup is probably the wrong word for this description, but we certainly won't be surprised if Dobbins opens his debut season running behind Ingram. The veteran didn't miss a game last season until Baltimore's meaningless finale, while averaging 5.0 yards per carry and 9.5 yards per catch for the year. We do, however, project the rookie to outscore Ingram -- who will turn 31 in December -- in fantasy for the season.
