Keaton Mitchell "On Schedule" with ACL Recovery
1 month ago

John Harbaugh said Keaton Mitchell’s ACL Recovery is “on schedule” which occurred in Week 15.

With Baltimore’s off-season activities in full swing, one player unfortunately that will not be part of it is Keaton Mitchell. He is still recovering from his torn ACL but optimistic that he should be back sometime this season and rehab looks to be going well.

 

For fantasy, Mitchell’s redraft value unfortunately is at its lowest, missing most of the fantasy season and sharing time with Derrick Henry. In dynasty, Mitchell’s is still valuable and worth stashing or holding onto with a bright future ahead.

Keaton Mitchell OUT with ACL injury; Edwards and Hill back splitting work
6 months ago

Keaton Mitchell tore his ACL Sunday night vs the Jaguars, OUT for year.

The Baltimore Ravens have lost rookie running back Keaton Mitchell for the year with an ACL tear. Mitchell was playing really well before the injury, and his presence on the Baltimore offense will be missed, as will his presence on fantasy rosters.

 

Keaton Mitchell had been on his way to another good fantasy performance rushing for 73 yards on just 9 carries, and catching his 2 targets for 15 yds before the injury. The efficiency of Mitchell had been earning him some more playing time on the Baltimore offense, and his game breaking speed made him a threat to score on any play. Keaton will be missed in these fantasy playoffs.

 

 

The Ravens will turn to the dual backfield of Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.

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.
