J.K. Dobbins
21-Year-Old Running BackRB
Baltimore Ravens
2020 Fantasy Outlook
A three-year starter at Ohio State, Dobbins is a chiseled 5-9, 209, with enough strength to punish tacklers and more than enough speed to run past them. While a nagging ankle injury kept him from fully participating at the combine, his workouts as an 18-year-old coming out of high school were eye-popping (he ran a 4.45 40, and his 43.1-inch vertical would have been second highest by a college RB since 2006). He also flashed plenty of breakaway speed at Ohio State, leading the nation last season with 31 runs of 15-plus yards. Dobbins even showed some ability as a receiver and pass protector, cementing his status as a potential three-down option in the NFL. This season, he'll likely be part of a backfield committee for Baltimore, which drafted him 55th overall. The Ravens led the league with 596 rush attempts last season and set a NFL record with 3,296 rushing yards, but it was quarterback Lamar Jackson who led the way with 37 percent of the yardage and a third of the touchdowns, leaving Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill with a combined 393 carries for 1,954 yards and 14 TDs. That's still big-time production, no doubt, but it'll be tough for Dobbins to take more than half of the pie as a rookie, considering Ingram, Edwards and Hill remain on the roster. Read Past Outlooks

Dobbins carried nine times for 28 yards and caught two of four targets for one additional yard during Sunday's 30-28 win over the Eagles.
ANALYSIS
Dobbins' stats were nothing to write home about, but Mark Ingram left the game with an ankle injury, opening the door for the rookie to take on double-digit touches for the first time in his young career. The extent of Ingram's injury remains to be seen, but he will have an extra week to heal as the Ravens go on bye before returning to face the Steelers in Week 8. If the veteran is forced to miss any action, Dobbins and Gus Edwards would both stand to benefit from a fantasy perspective, though the team seems likely to continue its backfield-by-committee approach.
