2021 Fantasy Outlook
Through the first six weeks of his rookie season last year, Dobbins was mostly buried on the depth chart, watching from the sideline as Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards handled most of the carries. The second-round pick did find the end zone twice in his NFL debut, but he didn't see double-digit carries in a game during that initial stretch. Following Baltimore's bye, Dobbins began to push Ingram out of the picture - starting with a Week 8 eruption for 113 yards against the Steelers - and by the end of the year those touchdowns were a weekly occurrence. Dobbins is an athletic runner with power and speed, and he was among the toughest players in the NFL for the initial tackler to bring down, finishing fourth among all RBs with an average of 2.9 yards after contact, a number comparable to the likes of Derrick Henry, Aaron Jones and Nick Chubb. Unfortunately, a preseason torn ACL has derailed Dobbins' second season as a pro, which paves the way for Edwards to head the Ravens' backfield. The silver lining for Dobbins is the early timing of his injury, as he'll have a full year to recover before Week 1 of 2022. Read Past Outlooks

Dobbins underwent successful surgery to repair his torn ACL on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Dobbins is expected to make a full recovery, and the timing of his injury should allow the starting running back to be ready by the start of next season if he avoids any setbacks. With fellow running back Gus Edwards sustaining a potentially serious knee injury of his own in practice Thursday, the Ravens are perilously thin in the backfield heading into the 2021 season.

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.
