Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) is expected to undergo surgery on Friday for his torn Achilles, according to a source. Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers recovered in less than six months from a torn Achilles two years ago, and Dobbins is aiming for a similar timeline with his recovery. In any event, fantasy managers in redraft leagues can safely drop Dobbins after just one week of the 2023 season. The 24-year-old will enter free agency next March, but he'll have to prove his health before any other teams take a chance on the injury-prone running back. With Dobbins now out of the picture, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will share Baltimore's backfield, with veteran Melvin Gordon III expected to join the roster from the practice squad.

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (ankle) officially tore his Achilles during Week 1, an MRI confirmed. Head coach John Harbaugh announced the unfortunate news postgame. Dobbins exited in the second half and was unable to return. This injury is season-ending, meaning Dobbins will have played in just eight games from 2021 through 2023. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will lead the backfield going forward.

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (foot) is feared to have suffered a torn Achilles during Sunday's season opener against the Houston Texans. It's a crushing blow for the Ravens and their 24-year-old running back given the fact that he has missed 26 games over the last two seasons. Baltimore will proceed with Gus Edwards and Justice Hill in its backfield, though they'll surely explore the free-agent market if Dobbins' prognosis is confirmed.

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (ankle) is questionable to return in Week 1 versus the Houston Texans. He exited in the second half after totaling 37 scrimmage yards and one touchdown. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will handle more snaps out of the backfield until Dobbins is able to return.

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins is starting the season off of the injury report and against the weakest defense against the run last year. The Texans ranked dead last against the run as they gave up a total of 2894 yards on 573 attempts and 25 touchdowns. The new offense may be more pass-oriented than it ever has been before, but the Ravens don't seem ready to fully go away from the run game that they've established. Dobbins is a high-end RB2 heading into this matchup with potential to get into RB1 territory especially if the game becomes lopsided early on.

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins will not suit up for his team's final preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday. Dobbins missed the early portion of training camp and will not play in any of the Ravens' preseason games but is in line to lead the Baltimore backfield once the regular season opens. Dobbins is telling reporters that he "feels amazing" heading into the final year of his rookie deal. He sets up as a low-end RB2 who could finish even higher if he's able to stay healthy in 2023.

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins participated in team drills during Friday's practice. He was recently activated from the PUP list and began practicing on Monday. However, he was limited to individual work until Friday's practice session. The Ravens still have roughly three weeks to get Dobbins prepared for the regular season opener. That should be enough time to get the 24-year-old back up to full speed. When healthy, Dobbins has RB2 upside, but keeping him on the field has been an issue early in his career.
