Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins made his season debut in Sunday's win over the Patriots, totaling 40 yards on 9 touches. Dobbins trailed only QB Lamar Jackson in rushing attempts (7), gaining 23 yards. He added 17 via 2 receptions on his only 2 targets. Dobbins' playing time proved near-identical to Justice Hill's in all phases. We'd bet on that shifting more toward Dobbins as he moves further from the knee recovery. But Baltimore also figures to get RB Gus Edwards back on the field fairly soon. So don't be surprised if Dobbins spends the year sharing more work than you'd like him to. RB Kenyan Drake was a healthy scratch for Week 3. RB Mike Davis played 1 snap.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. It’s his first action since last August’s multi-ligament knee injury. RB Kenyan Drake is a healthy scratch, leaving RBs Justice Hill and Mike Davis behind Dobbins.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is expected to make his season debut Sunday against the Patriots, according to multiple reports. We’d hold off on using Dobbins in fantasy football lineups right away, as we have yet to see just how much work he’ll get. But we wouldn’t be surprised to see him quickly work his way to the front of an otherwise weak backfield.

"It appears unlikely" that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) plays against the Dolphins today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets. "He's pushing to go, but the team will make sure he's ready before he plays," Rapoport adds. Dobbins got in 3 full practices this week, but the Ravens continue to be super cautious with his return. So it looks like Kenyan Drake will get another game as Baltimore's lead back.

Kenyan Drake got the 1st and most touches among Ravens RBs in Sunday's 24-9 win at the Jets. He handled both RB carries on the team's 1st drive and finished with 11 rushes to Mike Davis' 2. He produced just 31 yards, however (2.8 per rush) and added a single 15-yard catch on his only target. Justice Hill led RBs with 2 targets, while Davis got 0. J.K. Dobbins was inactive but worked out before the game and entered the day "questionable." His return is nearing and might come as soon as Week 2.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. Dobbins was pushing to play and told ESPN’s Dianni Russini this morning that he’ll be back “soon.” We’ll continue to keep you updated on his progress. RBs Mike Davis, Kenyan Drake and Justice Hill are active for Baltimore today.

ESPN's Dianna Russini hears that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) is a game-time decision for today's opener vs. the Jets but is trending toward sitting. "It’s unlikely he plays but he’s going to try," Russini tweeted. Dobbins should be on fantasy benches even if he ends up active today. Look for Mike Davis and Kenyan Drake to handle most of Baltimore's RB work.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He was limited in practice all week. QB Lamar Jackson seemed to suggest on Wednesday that Dobbins would not play in the opener, but it looks like he at least has a shot. We'd expect Dobbins to be on a snap count if he does play, though, and wouldn't use him in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Ravens OC Greg Roman said he'll go with the "hot hand" at RB in Sunday's opener vs. the Jets. Assuming RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) doesn't play, it'll be Mike Davis, Kenyan Drake and Justice Hill in the backfield. It's a plus matchup against last year's worst RB defense, but the murky backfield split makes it a tough situation to bank on in fantasy lineups.

RB Kenyan Drake is signing with the Ravens, according to insider Jordan Schultz. Drake was dumped by HC Josh McDaniels and the new Raiders regime a little over a week ago. He turns 29 in January and, while he remained effective as a pass catcher last year, he averaged just 4.0 yards per carry and ranked 42nd among 77 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades. Drake is an insurance policy for a Ravens team still waiting for RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards to get over their 2021 knee injuries. We'll see whether Dobbins is ready for Week 1. If not, the Ravens figure to roll with Drake and Mike Davis.

The Ravens will host free-agent RB Kenyan Drake today, and it sounds like he's expected to sign with the team, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This move could signal J.K. Dobbins not being ready for Week 1. Or perhaps Baltimore doesn't feel as good about Mike Davis as his depth-chart slot might seem. We'll see how this situation develops as the opener approaches.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Raiders plan to release RB Kenyan Drake. It's not a surprise given recent signals that Amber Abdullah has been garnering passing-down work ahead of him. We'll see whether the 28-year-old can find a meaningful role anywhere else.

Insider Albert Breer calls Raiders RB Ameer Abdullah a "camp revelation" and believes he's set to play the James White role in HC Josh McDaniels' offense. Abdullah quietly caught 35 balls in 11 games for the Panthers last year and tested as an 87th percentile athlete prior to getting drafted in 2015. Vegas' backfield is murky right now, but if Abdullah is truly pegged for the "James White role," it'd be bad news for RB Josh Jacobs and would leave RB Kenyan Drake undraftable.

We saw some funky usage in the Raiders backfield in Thursday night's Hall of Fame game. QB Derek Carr, WR Davante Adams and TE Darren Waller got the night off, but RB Josh Jacobs played the first 2 series, tallying 5 carries and 2 targets. "I always think it's good for (running) backs to carry the ball in the preseason," HC Josh McDaniels said afterward. “There’s a lot of things that happen when you’re getting tackled and hit that you can’t simulate in practice." Ameer Abdullah and Zamir White were the next 2 RBs in the game for the Raiders -- then came Kenyan Drake. We're not going to read too much into any of this just yet, but we're definitely keeping a closer eye on this backfield going forward.

Raiders RB Kenyan Drake is set to play a "significant role in the rotation as a runner and a receiver" in HC Josh McDaniels' offense, according to The Athletic's Tashan Reed. Drake averaged just 4.1 carries and 2.9 targets in 8 games alongside a healthy Josh Jacobs last year, but it sounds like his role could be bigger in 2022. Drake still isn't an exciting fantasy option, but this news makes Jacobs less attractive. Reed told us on a recent podcast that he expects a Patriots-like committee backfield in Vegas.
