| Dobbins still "week-to-week"|
RB continues his journey back from severe knee injury

FFToday's Take: We know from the fact that Dobbins' full participation in practice last week that he is close to a return. Unfortunately, it appears the team's optimism a couple of weeks ago may have been premature. It is beginning to appear as if Dobbins and Gus Edwards may be on similar schedules. Until then, fantasy managers probably need to avoid this backfield, which features Kenyan Drake, Mike Davis and Justice Hill at the moment.
| J.K. Dobbins expected to sit in Week 2|
2022 debut will have to wait

FFToday's Take: Dobbins is trying to come back from a significant knee injury but he debut will have to wait. With Dobbins absent in Week 1, the Ravens running backs did very little with Kenyan Drake (33) seeing the most snaps ahead of Justice Hill (11) and Mike Davis (7). Drake is really the only option to consider.
| J.K Dobbins gets in full practice on Wednesday|
Missed Week 1 with knee injury

FFToday's Take: While Dobbins missed Week 1 with a knee injury, the remaining Ravens' running backs posted a 15-46-0; 3-22-0 line with Kenyan Drake getting the most carries (11). Dobbins returning to action in Week 2 against the Dolphins would be a welcome sight. We'll have a better idea of his status after practice on Friday.
| Not looking good for J.K. Dobbins|
Unlikely to play

|Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is expected to be a game time decision today but I was told by a source this morning “it’s unlikely he plays but he’s going to try” (Dianna Russini on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: This sounds like Dobbins will ultimately end up on the Inactive list today but we'll know that 90 minutes before the Ravens and Jets kickoff at 1 pm eastern. Dobbins has been working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last pre-season. Mike Davis and Kenyan Drake are likely to share the running back workload in Dobbins' absence
| J.K. Dobbins listed as Questionable, limited in practice|
limited in practice all week

|Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's opener at the New York Jets.
He has had limited participation all week in practice. (Jamison Hensley on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Ravens have been signaling that Dobbins won't be a full-go to start the season by signing Kenyan Drake and Mike Davis. The Ravens do play in the early window on Sunday so we'll have a good idea of Baltimore's running back situation on Sunday morning prior to inactives being released.
|Ravens expected to sign Kenyan Drake|
Released by the Raiders last week

FFToday's Take: Released by the Raiders last week, this move could be a bad sign that J.K. Dobbins will not be ready by Week 1 or it could just be added depth for early in the season given Gus Edwards is on the Reserve/PUP list and will miss the first four games. Mike Davis, Justice Hill and Tyler Badie are currently on the roster ahead of final cuts at 4 pm Eastern this afternoon.

Ameer Abdullah appears poised to assume passing-down role
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 22, 11:30 pm
|The Las Vegas Raiders plan to release veteran running back Kenyan Drake and absorb a $3.6 million salary-cap hit this year and $4.4 million in 2023 as a result.

FFToday's Take: It was a bad sign for Drake's spot on the roster when the Raiders opted to rest Ameer Abdullah and play the 28-year-old over the last two preseason games. Drake's release makes it very likely that Ameer Abdullah will serve in the same passing-down role that Kevin Faulk, Danny Woodhead and James White made famous in New England under former Pats OC (and current Raiders HC) Josh McDaniels. Do not be surprised if Abdullah maintains flex value for what figures to be a very good offense in Las Vegas.
