Ravens add Dobbins | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

Recent Shark Bites

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins isn't listed on the Week 17 injury report. He left last week's game with a rib injury but is evidently good to go for Sunday's finale vs. the Bengals. The rookie has been Baltimore's lead back over his last 5 games, averaging 12.8 carries -- but just .8 targets.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins suffered a rib injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Giants. We'll look for an update on the severity. The rookie's absence left Gus Edwards as Baltimore's top back.

Ravens RBs J.K. Dobbins has been activated from the COVID list and will return for Tuesday night’s game against the Cowboys. When we last saw the rookie back in Week 11, he carried 15 times for 70 yards and a score while playing 63% of Baltimore’s offensive snaps. A similar role would make him an upside RB2 in a plus matchup vs. Dallas.

Ravens RBs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram were not activated from the COVID list for today's game vs. the Steelers. We'll see if they're able to return for Tuesday night's game vs. the Cowboys. It'll be Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and practice-squad call-up Ty'Son Williams in the Ravens' backfield vs. Pittsburgh's 5th-ranked RB defense.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley doesn't expect Ravens RBs J.K. Dobbins or Mark Ingram to play against the Steelers on Wednesday afternoon. Both guys are eligible to be activated from the COVID list, but it sounds like the time away from the team will keep them off the field today. We'll find out for sure around 2 pm ET. Dobbins and Ingram's absences would leave Gus Edwards as Baltimore's lead back, with Justice Hill the #2.
