Jeff Zrebiec considers RB J.K. Dobbins “highly unlikely” to play in the preseason. In fact, Zrebiec considers it “logical” for the Ravens to place Dobbins on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the open of training camp. This all comes after Dobbins sat out the offseason program following an August 2021 ACL tear. “The knee injuries are a little tougher to say what the schedule really is. So, you talk to J.K., he’s the starting running back today, (and) he should have been practicing today, but he’s got work to do still,” HC John Harbaugh said in June. Consider Dobbins a high-risk low-end RB2 until we gain more clarity on his health.
Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins led Sunday's backfield in the loss to Buffalo, collecting 13 carries and 4 targets. Dobbins delivered both of the team's TDs, running 1 in from 4 yards out and catching Lamar Jackson's lone TD pass from 1 yard out. Dobbins averaged just 3.2 yards across his 13 rushes, though, and 5.5 yards on his 4 receptions. Nearly all of his 22 receiving yards came on a single 20-yard reception. Justice Hill handled another 8 carries and 2 targets but left early with a hamstring injury. We'll see about Hill's status for Week 5, as well as whether Gus Edwards is ready to come off the PUP list.
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.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins "may not even be limited in workload" vs. the Patriots today -- his 1st game off since last August's multi-ligament knee injury. We're not totally buying the report, but it does add some upside to Dobbins if you're weighing him against similarly ranked options.
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.
