Shark Bites

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that there's "certainly a chance" that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is not ready for Week 1 of the regular season and that he might even need "a couple weeks" after that. There reportedly has been no setback with Dobbins' recovery from the ACL tear, but the team plans to not rush him back. Gus Edwards -- recovering from his own ACL tear -- "seems like he should be on track" for the opener. We'll certainly watch the status of each player through training camp and preseason. We haven't been close to drafting Dobbins at cost so far this year, though. Rookie Tyler Badie and ex-Falcons RB Mike Davis could factor in early as well, if Dobbins can't go.

Update: Dobbins responded to the Rapoport report on Twitter by saying, "I might not even go on PUP because that's how good my rehab is going and I'm damn sure going to be ready for week 1." We'll see what's true as we get closer to September.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) is again listed as questionable after a full week of practice. He was in the same spot last week before ending up inactive vs. the Dolphins. We'll find out whether Dobbins is playing against the Patriots around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. But we're expecting him to be on a touch count if he does.
