J.K. Dobbins
22-Year-Old Running BackRB
Baltimore Ravens
2020 Fantasy Outlook
A three-year starter at Ohio State, Dobbins is a chiseled 5-9, 209, with enough strength to punish tacklers and more than enough speed to run past them. While a nagging ankle injury kept him from fully participating at the combine, his workouts as an 18-year-old coming out of high school were eye-popping (he ran a 4.45 40, and his 43.1-inch vertical would have been second highest by a college RB since 2006). He also flashed plenty of breakaway speed at Ohio State, leading the nation last season with 31 runs of 15-plus yards. Dobbins even showed some ability as a receiver and pass protector, cementing his status as a potential three-down option in the NFL. This season, he'll likely be part of a backfield committee for Baltimore, which drafted him 55th overall. The Ravens led the league with 596 rush attempts last season and set a NFL record with 3,296 rushing yards, but it was quarterback Lamar Jackson who led the way with 37 percent of the yardage and a third of the touchdowns, leaving Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill with a combined 393 carries for 1,954 yards and 14 TDs. That's still big-time production, no doubt, but it'll be tough for Dobbins to take more than half of the pie as a rookie, considering Ingram, Edwards and Hill remain on the roster. Read Past Outlooks

TD streak broken in playoff loss
RBBaltimore Ravens
January 16, 2021
Dobbins ran the ball 10 times for 42 yards, hauling in three of five targets for 51 yards during Saturday's 17-3 divisional-round loss to the Bills.
ANALYSIS
Dobbins came into the AFC playoff matchup having posted eight rushing scores over his past seven outings, but Buffalo held the rookie back without a TD despite him receiving three red-zone opportunities. As was a prevailing trend over the latter stages of the season with Mark Ingram a frequent healthy scratch, Baltimore deployed Gus Edwards and Dobbins in equal measure on the ground as each back garnered 10 rush attempts Saturday night. The rookie from Ohio State closed out the campaign with double-digit rush attempts over seven of his final eight games of the regular season, racking up an astronomical 6.0 yards per carry during that span. The 22-year-old will play a vital part of the Ravens' ground attack looking ahead to 2021 after totaling 805 yards and nine TDs on 134 carries in the regular season.
