2019 Fantasy Outlook
Dobbins took a minor step back from a rushing perspective last season, averaging just 4.6 yards per tote after posting a 7.2 average as a freshman in 2017. Some of that likely relates to a change in the offense with pro-style quarterback Dwayne Haskins barking out calls. With dual-threat signal-caller Justin Fields set to take the reins this season, the offense will likely resemble 2017 when J.T. Barrett was at the helm, which could benefit Dobbins again.

Dobbins rushed seven times for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Rose Bowl against Washington.
ANALYSIS
Dobbins didn't have a ton of volume on the night, but he did manage to cap off his season with double-digit touchdowns thanks to the score. He managed just 4.6 yards per carry as a sophomore after posting 7.7 as a freshman, though he totaled more than 1,000 yards rushing for a second straight season. With Mike Weber moving on to the NFL, Dobbins should take over the lead role in the Buckeyes' backfield for 2019.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Dobbins exploded onto the scene as a true freshman for the Buckeyes in 2017, rushing for over 100 yards on six different occasions, including three of the last four games. Junior Mike Weber will undoubtedly receive his fair share of looks in the backfield as well, but Dobbins proved he could do more with his touches, averaging 7.5 yards per carry en route to 1,364 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. While the offense will likely resemble more of a pro-style look with Dwayne Haskins under center, it should also stretch the field with defenses respecting the pass more.
