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.

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.

If you've been getting excited over the upside of Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins in the wake of Gus Edwards landing on the regular-season PUP list, then you might want to pump the brakes. "Even if Dobbins suits up for the season opener, he won't get a full workload," ESPN's Jamison Hensley says. "It's too early to predict when Dobbins will get back to receiving double-digit touches in games." Hensley adds that Mike Davis "could get the most carries early in the season and remain part of Baltimore's game plan throughout the season." We still wouldn't select Davis before the late rounds of fantasy football drafts. But this potential role is certainly worth noting -- if for nothing else other than helping to set realistic expectations for Dobbins.

The Ravens have placed RB Gus Edwards (ACL) on the Reserve/PUP list. That means he'll miss at least the 1st 4 games of the regular season. His absence leaves room for J.K. Dobbins to operate as likely the clear backfield leader at least early in the season. We wouldn't be surprised, though, if Baltimore avoids overworking Dobbins off his own ACL tear. Mike Davis currently appears headed for the #2 RB role early in the year, though we'll see how that sorts out over the next couple of weeks.

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.
