22. JK Dobbins, Baltimore Ravens

2020 stats (missed all of 2021 with injury):

  • 925 yards from scrimmage
  • 9 total touchdowns
  • 18 receptions

The last time we saw a healthy JK Dobbins was also the last time the Baltimore Ravens’ offense actually looked good.

The Ravens cycled through so many running backs last season, and fantasy football players who won their leagues in 2016 couldn’t believe all the superstars Baltimore was able to collect on one roster.

Players like Le’Veon Bell, Devonta Freeman, and Latavius Murray have all been part of the Ravens’ backfield recently, but none of them was able to provide the same kind of impact we saw from former Ohio State star JK Dobbins when he was last the featured back in the Baltimore offense.

Coming back from injury in 2022, the Ravens are obviously hoping that Dobbins can return to his pre-injury form and even take the next step forward.

I don’t think it’s out of the question that we could see at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage for Dobbins this year, provided he can stay on the field.
