Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) posted videos on social media on Thursday of him running on a field and on a treadmill five and a half months after suffering a torn Achilles in Week 1 of last season. The 25-year-old will be hoping to get a new contract from the Ravens this offseason, but Baltimore could also bring back Gus Edwards, and they've been connected to some big-name impending free-agent RBs as well. Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell (knee) are still under contract with the Ravens. Even if Dobbins fully recovers from his injury and sticks in Baltimore, his extensive injury history -- he's played in only nine games the last three years -- and the fact that the Ravens will likely have plenty of competition in the backfield, doesn't inspire a ton of confidence in his 2024 fantasy value.

Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams finished the regular season with a strong performance in the 27-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. He led the team with nine carries for 32 yards and only his third rushing touchdown of the season and also led the team with seven catches on a team-high nine targets for an additional 43 yards. It helped that rookie Jaleel McLaughlin left the game with a head injury and never returned. The 23-year-old entered Week 18 after barely averaging over 2.00 yards per carry the last two weeks, but he was able to finish strong heading into the offseason. Overall, the third-year back was a disappointment, carrying the ball 217 times for 774 yards and three touchdowns while adding 47 catches (58 targets) for 228 yards and two TDs through the air. Heading into the final year of his contract, Williams' fantasy value in 2024 will depend on what Denver does at the QB position in the offseason.
