What You Need to Know:

  • Edwards suffered an ACL tear last Sept. 9.
  • Like with J.K. Dobbins, the Ravens have indicated that Edwards’ recovery is going well and that they expect to have him back to open the season.
  • HC John Harbaugh said in early spring that he didn’t know whether Edwards and Dobbins would start training camp on the PUP but that the team would likely be cautious in bringing each player along.
  • Last time he was on the field, Edwards beat Dobbins in Pro Football Focus rushing grade, ranking 5th in that category among 64 RBs with 70+ carries in 2020. Edwards ranked well behind Dobbins in elusive rating, checking in 34th. (Dobbins ranked 11th.)
  • Edwards narrowly trailed Dobbins in 2020 workload. He actually edged Dobbins 9.0 carries per game to 8.9 for the season. Dobbins led in carry share after the bye, when Baltimore removed Mark Ingram from the lead spot. But in their 9 shared contests after the bye, Dobbins led just 31.5% to 25.1%. And the 2 matched in targets over that span (10 total).
  • Edwards also narrowly trailed Dobbins in yards after contact per attempt in 2020: 3.28 vs. 3.35, according to PFF. Both ranked among the position’s top 11.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

J.K. Dobbins brings much more upside as an athlete and all-around RB. But the limited sample we have to go on didn’t show Baltimore treating the 2 players that way. In fact, the Ravens extended Edwards just last June. We would much rather bet on the upside of Dobbins between them. But so would every fantasy player. That’s why there’s 12 rounds of difference between them in ADP as of this writing, and we’d bet on that continuing. That alone makes Dobbins overvalued and Edwards a solid-to-strong stash in WR5 range.

Ravens backfield update

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said he’s “hopeful” RBs Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins will be ready for the regular season. Harbaugh also said that they're “on track,” so Week 1 is realistic barring a setback. Both guys will be ~1 year removed from ACL surgery come the regular season, so the question is just how much action they see in training camp. Neither player has practiced so far this spring.

An MRI confirmed a torn ACL for Ravens RB Gus Edwards, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So Edwards, like teammates J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill, will miss the entire 2021 season. That leaves Baltimore with RBs Ty'Son Williams and Trenton Cannon on the active roster and RBs Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman on the practice squad. Williams is a good bet to lead the way in Monday night's opener vs. the Raiders. We'll see where the backfield goes beyond that.

Dynasty Write-up
A torn ACL from September wiped out Edwards’ 2021. The same injury struck teammate J.K. Dobbins around the same time. Dobbins projects as the lead guy going forward, with Edwards seeing some early-down/goal line reps. Edwards turns 27 in April.
