The Baltimore Ravens fear that RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) may have sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the team's preseason game against the Washington Football Team Saturday, Aug. 28, based on the early diagnosis, according to multiple sources. He will undergo an MRI exam Sunday, Aug. 29, to determine the extent of the injury.
Huddle Up: If the early diagnosis turns out to be accurate, Dobbins' 2021 season would be over before it got started. Gus Edwards is the heavy favorite to serve as Baltimore's lead running back and should be viewed as an RB2 option in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Dobbins' status in the next day or two. He is a No. 2 running back in leagues if he is healthy, but players need other options available if Dobbins misses games. Gus Edwards would be a weekly starting option in leagues if Dobbins misses a lot of time.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins made 'a good number of catches' in practice Tuesday, June 8, continuing a theme head coach John Harbaugh is trying to emphasize this offseason - getting the running backs more involved in the passing game.
Huddle Up: Harbaugh noted that Dobbins "has really made strides in the passing game" this spring. There's certainly room for the coaching staff to get him, Justice Hill and Gus Edwards more involved in the passing game after Baltimore running backs combined for 47 catches last year - including only 18 from Dobbins. If Dobbins can double that total as a sophomore, he stands a great chance of living up to his second-round draft cost in fantasy drafts. Fantasy owners can expect his ADP to move into the late first round soon.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins has the skillset to be a receiver out of the backfield, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Dobbins caught 12 passes for 120 yards last season.
Huddle Up: Dobbins could see more targets in the passing game, which would help his fantasy value. He will continue to share playing time with Gus Edwards in the running game but can be No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is slated for a 'very big role' in the offense in 2021, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, and Hensley expects 1,100 rushing and double-digit touchdowns out of Dobbins.
Huddle Up: Dobbins ranked in the top 10 in rushing yards over the final five games of his rookie year, and if Baltimore allows him to lead the backfield for an entire season, a 1,000-yard campaign should be on tap.
