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.

Baltimore Ravens second-round pick RB J.K. Dobbins adds a big-play threat with breakaway speed who runs with a low center of gravity and shows a consistent ability to break tackles. 'What I like most about him is if he's got a crease, he's gone,' general manager Eric DeCosta said. 'He's a guy that has an extra gear through the second and third levels of the defense. He can make big plays, and he did that in every game this year. He's got a little bit of a game-breaker style to him.'
Huddle Up: The Ravens got a lot scarier on offense in this draft, and Dobbins will be part of that. However, he'll likely be eased in with Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram also capable of 1,000 yards. Dobbins will be an upside pick later in drafts, but he can't be counted on as an RB3 yet.

Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said the team was ecstatic to land rookie RB J.K. Dobbins in the NFL Draft. 'He was by far -- by far -- the highest-rated guy that we had on the board. We kind of felt like he fell out of the sky right to us, the type of team that we are to get a running back like that,' DeCosta said.

Baltimore Ravens rookie RB J.K. Dobbins will receive help from veteran RB Mark Ingram as Dobbins, a second-round draft pick, makes his transition to the NFL. Ingram plans to help mentor Dobbins in any way that he can. 'Instead of being selfish, I think you always need to take a younger player along and just be open, be transparent, teach them some of your successes, your failures and help bring them along so they can have great careers,' Ingram said of his planned role with his rookie teammate. Ingram isn't worried about another back in the mix. 'Competition breeds excellence,' Ingram said. The Ravens are deep at running back with Ingram, Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, and it remains to be seen how the Ravens will divvy up their touches in 2020.
Huddle Up: The Ravens are incredibly deep at the position, and lets not forget QB Lamar Jackson is no stranger to piling on rushing yardage and touchdowns, too. Dobbins has better value in dynasty leagues, but could work his way into a low-end flex option in 2020 with enough touches; at worst, he's a handcuff to Ingram this year. His addition also lowers Ingram's value to low-end RB2 status during your fantasy football draft.
