FFToday's Take: Head coach John Harbaugh stated last week that Dobbins' knee "tightned up" on him which led to Kenyan Drake taking over the bulk of the running back duties in Week 6. Justice Hill is also expected to be active and the team still has the option to make Gus Edwards active if they choose. Drake looks like the desirable fantasy play in Week 7 against the Browns.
| Rashod Bateman missed practice Thursday|

|Not practicing for Ravens: WR Rashod Bateman (foot), OLB Justin Houston (groin), G Ben Cleveland (foot), TE Nick Boyle.
Returning to practice: RB Justice Hill (hamstring), LT Ronnie Stanley (ankle), CB Marcus Peters (vet day), DE Calais Campbell (vet day). (Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Bateman missed Week 5 and it isn't looking promising for Week 6 either. Devin Duvernay and Demarcus Robinson have been the main wideouts in a scenario were Bateman sits with Duvernay being the only real fantasy consideration.
| Ravens rule out WR Rashod Bateman, RB Justice Hill|
Both missed practice all week

FFToday's Take: Bateman didn't practice all week after suffering a foot injury in Week 4. Devin Duvernay gets a slight bump in appeal this week in the Ravens low-volume passing attack. With Hill absent the Ravens will likely give Kenyan Drake more reps but J.K. Dobbins is the back to own in Baltimore.
| 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.
|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.
