J.K. Dobbins 2020 Fantasy Football Recap

It took time for Dobbins to really get integrated into this offense, but once he did, he was imposing. The former Ohio State standout rushed for 495 yards and seven touchdowns in his final six games and accumulated more than 800 yards on the season.

Dobbins became one of six running backs since 1995 to rush for 6.0+ yards per carry on at least 100 rush attempts, joining Barry Sanders, Alvin Kamara, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson and C.J. Spiller. He has the look of a special player.

J.K. Dobbins 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Dobbins looked like the most talented runner among rookie running backs, which is impressive considering how stacked this class was. The Ravens will pass more this season, so Dobbins has an opportunity to have more receiving volume.

Mark Ingram is now in Houston, so Dobbins will only have to share time with Gus Edwards. Dobbins will be the lead back with Edwards depending on game-script for fantasy production as the clock-killing interior runner when the Ravens play with the lead.

Dobbins has the ability to lead the league in rushing yards and touchdowns if given enough touches. He’s a  special runner who will have rushing lanes opened up by the most explosive scrambling quarterback in football in Lamar Jackson. While there are concerns with volume, if Dobbins can keep displaying an elite level of efficiency, Baltimore will have no choice but to feed the beast.

J.K. Dobbins 2021 Fantasy Football Draft Value (PPR)

Dobbins can be an RB1 just like other running backs in his class like Jonathan Taylor, Antonio Gibson, Cam Akers, and D’Andre Swift. We just can’t rank him there yet because of the lack of passing volume. However, he’s an elite RB2 with the upside to break into the upper echelon at his position. Dobbins is a top-15 running back heading into the 2021 season.
