Instant Fantasy Analysis - RB JK Dobbins, Ravens

Recommended Posts

Draft Profile

Dobbins is a bit of a walking contrast. He is a big play waiting to happen on just about every touch, but there are too many times where he doesn't pull away from defenders. He runs with power and flashes the ability to break tackles consistently, but he also gets stopped dead in his tracks too often on inside runs. He is a capable receiver, but it was hard to watch him in pass protection until the final few games of 2019. There's no question he has the goods to be a three-down back in the NFL, but being drafted by the Ravens should provide him a chance to get the necessary time to address the aforementioned dichotomies, as he will be an explosive change-of-pace back initially in Baltimore.

What does it mean in redraft? There's no chance he'll overtake Mark Ingram in 2020, but it's a pretty solid bet he'll play ahead of Gus Edwards and Justice Hill. That's a big deal in run-heavy Baltimore, as any handcuff - especially one with Dobbins' explosiveness - would likely be catapulted into RB2 territory if Ingram got hurt. As such, Dobbins is shaping up to be considered one of the more valuable handcuffs in fantasy.

What does it mean for dynasty? With Ingram having already turned 30, the Ravens could be tempted to move on in 2021 if they see any kind of drop-off. Even if Ingram holds up for the remainder of his contract (through 2021), Dobbins will be involved. Owners are advised to stash him if possible and shouldn't be afraid to take him around 1.08 in rookie drafts.

Like him a lot in a keeper league. 

Dont like this landing spot for him in a redraft, just to much talent at the rb postion.
