Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins rushed for 34 yards on one carry against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5. He also caught three passes for 21 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Dobbins has not received more than seven touches in any game this season and not found the end zone since Week 1. He likely will receive a similar workload next week and can be avoided in most leagues.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins rushed for 16 yards on five carries against the Washington Football Team in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Dobbins has been held to under 25 yards in three of the four games this season. He probably will see a handful of carries next week but can be avoided in most leagues.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins rushed once for six yards in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added team highs with four catches and 38 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Dobbins is a decent option in deeper PPR formats right now, although Mark Ingram should still get the most carries in this backfield for the time being. The former Ohio State product is a tremendous long-term keeper option, however. The Ravens travel to meet the Washington Football Team in Week 4.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins rushed seven times for 22 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: The rookie made the most of his opportunity, and he likely had more chance to see the pigskin with the game out of hand. Mark Ingram is still the primary ball carrier in Charm City until further notice, but Dobbins showed that he is the future, and he is a tremendous fantasy reserve in standard play and a must-have in long-term keeper formats.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins will probably have 'a significant role' in the offense, according to comments made by head coach John Harbaugh on Tuesday, Sept. 1.
'Confidence plus coachability plus talent, that's a pretty good combination and he's got all of that,' Harbaugh said of Dobbins.
Huddle Up: Mark Ingram will remain the starter - likely throughout the entirety of the season - but Dobbins has just been too good in camp for the Ravens to ignore. Fortunately for both players, Baltimore running backs amassed 393 carries last season and have a good shot at matching that number in 2020, so there should be enough work for both players. Ingram projects as a bit of a risky fantasy RB2 with upside while Dobbins figures to start out as a flex option with RB1 upside if Ingram gets hurt at some point.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins said in a recent video media interview that he's planning to push for as much playing time as possible in his rookie season. 'I mean, I don't know how patient I can be,' Dobbins said. 'My thing is, I'm just trying to work hard. I'm going to try to play. I'm going to try to get on the field some way, somehow. My goal ain't to be patient. I was not that taught that in college. You know, don't be patient. Take advantage of your opportunities. I'm not saying that I'm going to start or anything, but I feel like if I just work hard enough and show the coaches that I can play at this level, then I'll be on the field. So my goal is to help the team win the Super Bowl (by) not sitting on the bench.'
Huddle Up: Mark Ingram and QB Lamar Jackson figure to lead the team in rushing attempts once again, but also once again, there should be plenty to go around with the Ravens finishing with 98 more attempts (596) than any other team in 2019. Value Dobbins as a RB3 with upside.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins says he is motivated after falling to the second round of the draft. 'I don't need any fuel, but it added fuel,' Dobbins said. 'It was kind of shocking, but I fell to the right team.'
Huddle Up: Dobbins did indeed hit the jackpot in landing with the run-heavy Ravens, but the biggest issue is that veteran RB Mark Ingram and QB Lamar Jackson figure to account for a good chunk of rushing attempts once again. That makes Dobbins a low-end RB3 with upside in standard drafts.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins' four-year rookie contract is worth $5.729 million total and includes a $1.726 signing bonus.

Baltimore Ravens second-round draft choice RB J.K. Dobbins signed a four-year contract with the Ravens Thursday, May 7. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Dobbins probably will receive a handful of carries in each game this upcoming season but should be the team's running back of the future. He can be a No. 4 running back in standard leagues but likely will be selected earlier in keeper leagues.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins has the skills to be a three-down running back in the NFL, according to general manager Eric DeCosta. DeCosta pointed out Dobbins' durability and his fit in the offense.
Huddle Up: Dobbins is joining a crowded backfield in Baltimore but should receive a decent amount of touches each game. He can be considered at least a No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues and should be valuable in keeper leagues since he could take over the starting job in 2021.
