JK Dobbins Tears Achilles Week 1
9 months ago

Baltimore Ravens RB JK Dobbins tore his Achilles in week one Vs. the Houston Texans effectively ending his season. Dobbins has suffered his second season-ending injury in three years.

Sunday afternoon as the 2023 NFL season kicked off JK Dobbins and the Baltimore Ravens got set to take on the Houston Texans in what was shaping up to be a solid outing for the Baltimore RB. Dobbins got off to a good start posting 11.7 PPR points with 10 minutes left in the 3rd Quarter and in position to possibly score his second TD of the game. Unfortunately for Dobbins and the Ravens he would get tackled inside the 5 yard line and get up gingerly signaling he needed medical attention. We would later find out Dobbins day was done, a torn achilles was confirmed by Head Coach John Harbaugh and his season would end before it really got going.

 

Following the Dobbins injury RB Justice Hill came in to score a rushing TD from 2 yards out, while RB Augustus Edwards punched in the 2pt conversion. Hill was the only RB to earn a touch (1 rush for no gain) in the first half of the game while Dobbins was still healthy, but he ended the game with the same amount of touches (8) as veteran Baltimore RB Augustus (Gus Bus) Edwards. All the touches that Hill and Edwards received were on the ground and there was little success for either RB especially Hill as he ended his day with 8 touches for 9 yards and 1 TD, while Gus Edwards managed 32 yards on 8 touches and a 2pt conversion.

 

The Baltimore Ravens are now planning to activate veteran 30 year old RB Melvin Gordon from their practice squad per @JosinaAnderson. The Ravens can be expected to use a RB by committee approach moving forward with Star QB Lamar Jackson being the head of said committee. Baltimore RBs as a group will have value, but no single individual should be trusted until one of Justice Hill, Augustus Edwards, Melvin Gordon, and dark horse Keaton Mitchell (currently on IR for a shoulder) prove themselves and take the reigns in this backfield. The injury to Dobbins also opens up the door of desperation for a Baltimore team built to compete for a championship to be more aggressive in trade talks for disgruntled Indianapolis Colts RB Johnathan Taylor.

 

 

Ravens Release Former Pro Bowl RB Melvin Gordon
9 months ago

The Baltimore Ravens have released two-time Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon.

How the mighty have fallen. After being waived last season by the Denver Broncos, Melvin Gordon signed with the Ravens to see if he could find a spark to get his career back on track. Unfortunately, after providing just 59 yards on 17 carries during the pre-season, the Ravens have decided to part ways with the former pro-bowler.

Now that the 53-man roster is set, the Ravens will be rolling with J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and talented undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell at running back. Dobbins will be the RB1 heading into the season with Edwards and Hill being mixed into the offense.

As for Mitchell, Gordon’s release signals to fantasy managers that Keaton is a name to remember in deeper dynasty leagues. Over his last two seasons at East Carolina, Mitchell has carried the ball 375 times for 2,584 yards and 23 touchdowns. He’s also illustrated that he can be a weapon out of the backfield by posting 49 receptions for 505 yards and two touchdowns. The three running backs ahead of Mitchell have not been the greatest pillars of good health, especially Dobbins and Edwards. This could lead to more opportunities in the offense sooner rather than later. If you have the space in your deep dynasty leagues Mitchell is a player you should consider stashing.

 

J.K. Dobbins Return TBD
10 months ago

Baltimore Ravens HC John Harbaugh is unsure when RB J.K. Dobbins will return to the team. Dobbins is currently away from the team on the Physically Unable to Perform List.

The Baltimore Ravens placed J.K. Dobbins on the Physically Unable to Perform list citing the knee injury that knocked Dobbins out of the 2021 season and parts of 2022. In reality, everyone knows J.K. Dobbins is not practicing because he is unhappy with his current contract. The Ravens do not view Dobbins’ “injury” as a distraction as Harbaugh is in regular communication with his running back.

 

In the short term, Gus Edwards, Melvin Gordon, and Justice Hill will split time with the First Team O while UDFA Keaton Mitchell tries to make the roster. In the long term, J.K. Dobbins has no leverage and the Ravens will not extend him early, meaning Dobbins will report to camp before Week 1 and will play all 17 games in hopes of securing a bag. Expect Dobbins to see 60%+ of the touches in a true bell cow capacity in a wide-open, spread offense under Todd Monken.
