Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins was heavily involved in last Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Playing in his first home game since returning from his ACL injury, the third-year back Ohio State product got plenty of touches and even found the end zone twice.
Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins
Dobbins had 13 carries for 41 yards and a touchdown against the Bills last week while adding four receptions for 22 yards and another score. The Ravens staff gave him a heavier workload than his season debut in Week 3 and he stepped up with a pair of touchdowns. His performance earned fantasy managers 18.3 fantasy points in standard leagues.
Start or sit in Week 5?
The presence of a healthy and productive Dobbins could take some of the pressure off Lamar Jackson to do everything for the offense. That means we can expect the back to get a similar workload to last Sunday and that makes him a good Flex option. I’d suggest you start Dobbins for this week.
