Shark Bites

Ravens OC Greg Roman believes RB J.K. Dobbins can be a "viable weapon in the passing game ... That's something we're working on diligently every day -- a threat out of the backfield." We don't doubt that Dobbins can be an asset as a pass-catcher. He tallied 71 receptions over 3 seasons at Ohio State. The question is whether the Ravens will actually get him more action in that department. Dobbins saw just 24 targets last year -- and Ravens RBs combined for just 50. That number checked in at 51 back in 2019, QB Lamar Jackson's first full season as starter. For perspective, 17 RBs topped 51 targets by themselves last year. So file this under "believe it when we see it." If Dobbins truly did take on a significant passing-game role this season, though, he'd be a strong bet for a RB1 finish.

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.
