According to ESPN's Jamison Hensley, Ravens GM Eric DeCosta had this to say of rookie RB J.K. Dobbins: "We think he's a three-down back. He's been extremely durable. He's an outstanding fit for what we like to do." That doesn't come as a surprise after the team drafted Dobbins in Round 2 and talked about being surprised that he lasted so long. But it's certainly reassuring for the rookie's fantasy outlook -- especially for dynasty leagues.
The Ravens added Ohio State RB J.K. Dobbins in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Dobbins burst onto the scene in Columbus, setting the school’s freshman record with 1,403 rushing yards on 194 carries — good for a gaudy 7.2 yards per attempt. He sunk to 4.6 yards per carry on 230 totes as a sophomore but rebounded in a big way this past season: 301 carries, 2,003 yards and 21 TDs. Dobbins was a workhorse, toting it 20+ times in 8 of 14 games and topping 30 carries 3 times. The 5’10, 209-pounder is downhill, no-nonsense runner, finishing top 12 among draft-eligible backs in both yards after contact and missed tackles forced, per Pro Football Focus. Dobbins is also capable in the passing game, tallying 22+ catches in all 3 seasons at Ohio State and averaging 9.1 yards per catch for his career. He joins a crowded backfield in Baltimore alongside Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill. We’ll see how the situation sorts out this season. But Dobbins projects as the lead back in the long term. Ingram turned 30 this past December.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Titans. He only got in 1 limited practice this week after experiencing tightness in that calf. He's a risk/reward fantasy play in this one. Ingram's status adds upside to RB Gus Edwards.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (calf) is expected to play against the Titans on Saturday night, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ingram got in just 1 limited practice this week but "did not appear to favor his injured calf" in the portion of Thursday's workout open to the media, per ESPN's Jamison Hensley. Still at risk of being limited and/or aggravating that injury, Ingram is a risky fantasy play this weekend.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (calf) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game against the Titans. He put in a limited practice on Thursday after sitting out the previous 2 days with what was described as tightness. The media is split on whether Ingram will play vs. Tennessee, while HC John Harbaugh said, "We’ll just have to see how it goes" when asked on Thursday. We'll get Ingram's official status around 6:45 pm ET on Saturday. If he's out, Gus Edwards figures to operate as Baltimore's lead back, with rookie Justice Hill as the #2.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Wednesday. He appears to be in real danger of missing Saturday night's game against the Titans. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Ravens RB Mark Ingram is dealing with "tightness" in his injured calf. He practiced last week but was sidelined on Tuesday. "Pulled back to avoid re-injury," Rapoport adds. "He still has a chance to play the Titans on Saturday." We'll obviously keep a close eye on this over the next few days. Gus Edwards will serve as lead back, with rookie Justice Hill as the #2, if Ingram misses the Divisional Round game.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Friday that RB Mark Ingram (calf) is expected to practice next week and is "on track" for Saturday's Divisional Round game. That jibes with the original report we got on Ingram's injury. Baltimore's lead back is certainly in play for your postseason fantasy leagues.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, RB Mark Ingram and TE Mark Andrews are inactive for today’s meaningless game against the Steelers. Don’t expect WR Marquise Brown to play much, if at all. QB Robert Griffin draws the start, but QB Trace McSorley is also expected to play. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will handle backfield duties. Avoid the WRs and TEs.
The MRI on Ravens RB Mark Ingram's injured calf confirmed a strain, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. "The hope is Ingram is back on the field for the playoffs based on the severity of the injury," Rapoport adds. Ingram will sit out Sunday's meaningless regular-season finale and then get another week to rest up before Baltimore's Divisional Round game.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh told Pro Football Talk after Sunday's win over the Browns that RB Mark Ingram will undergo an MRI on his injured calf. Harbaugh added that the "initial feeling is that he avoided any structural damage and that the hope is that it was cramping or perhaps a strain," per PFT. We should learn more about Ingram tomorrow, but don't expect him to play in the regular-season finale after Baltimore clinched the AFC's #1 seed. That'll leave the backfield to Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram suffered a calf injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Browns. He's officially questionable to return, but don't expect to see him back out there with Baltimore nursing a comfortable lead. Ingram's absence leaves the Ravens with RBs Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He put in a full week of practice, so expect him to play his usual role today. Ingram is a solid RB2.
Ravens TE Mark Andrews (foot), WR Marquise Brown (hip) and RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) -- all listed as questionable -- are expected to play against the Cardinals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We never heard much concern about any of these guys, so we'd use them in fantasy lineups as you normally would.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He put in a full week of practice, though, and HC John Harbaugh confirmed Friday that Ingram will play vs. Arizona. He's a nice RB2 with the Ravens 13-point home favorites.
Ryan Mink of the Ravens' website calls RB Mark Ingram the team's "clear featured back." That's been our presumption all offseason, despite the addition of rookie Justice Hill and the returns of Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon. Baltimore inked Ingram to a 3-year, $15 million deal this offseason after he had another strong year in New Orleans. Ingram averaged 4.7 yards per carry in 2018, his 4th straight season at 4.6 or better. He ranked 14th among 47 RBs in yards after contact per attempt and 20th in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating, which measures a runner's effectiveness beyond the blocking he receives. Atop the depth chart for the run-heavy Ravens, Ingram has a shot to best his current career-high of 230 carries this season. He's a fine value at his mid-4th-round ADP.
