2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
After missing the entire 2021 season and more than half the games in 2022 with lingering issues, this is a big year for the 4th year back. There is no denying that Dobbins oozes talent and big play ability. He averaged well over 5.5 yards per carry in his career, and after getting a clean-up procedure done in Week 7, Dobbins returned in Week 14 to dominate the rest of the season, averaging 88 yards on the ground in the final five games. His combination of power and speed is similar to Nick Chubb, and with the added threat of the passing game, Dobbins will never see a stacked box.

Dobbins has also been the darling of the offseason, and seems to be everyone's breakout candidate at running back. As a coordinator at Georgia and the Tampa Bay Bucs, Todd Monken's system seemed to favor a lead back. This would be a huge break from the Greg Roman days of a 3-headed backfield, and just another reason to be high on Dobbins. With a check box in the talent, scheme, and health category, what's not to like about him? If Jackson and Gus Edwards steal a few less touchdowns down at the goal-line, Dobbins should easily threaten double digit touchdowns, and has nowhere to go but up in the receiving category.

Every arrow seems to be pointing up for the former Buckeye, but like that annoying tag on a new t-shirt, something is nagging at me. His contract situation could be an issue, but this will likely be a non-story come late July as he has absolutely no leverage. For me, it's still the volume. In order to truly enter elite (Chubb) territory, he's going to have a see 50-75 more touches than he's ever had in his career and STILL maintain that elite efficiency, or have a boatload of touchdowns. While there is certainly a path to an RB1 finish, I think he should be treated as a high end RB2 with a RB1 upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Chargers add J.K. Dobbins to running back room
One-year deal
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Apr 17, 7:26 pm

Former Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins plans to sign a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Chargers, per his agency LAA Sports. He now will reunite with his former Ravens OC Greg Roman in Los Angeles. (Adam Schefter on X)

FFToday's Take: The Chargers have cornered the market on Ravens' running backs with Dobbins and Gus Edwards joining Jim Harbaugh's squad as free agents this off-season. Dobbins tore his Achilles back in September and also has torn his ACL and LCL in his injury history. He'll be facing an uphill battle to regain fantasy relevance in 2024.

Chiefs re-sign RB Clyde Edwards Helaire, one-year deal
J.K Dobbins in for a visit
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Apr 2, 4:18 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Can confirm Clyde Edwards-Helaire has agreed to a 1-year deal to re-sign with the Chiefs, per sources. As for J.K. Dobbins, I'm told his visit today was productive for both parties, perhaps a partnership that could happen later this offseason. (Nate Taylor on X)

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs only had one running back under contract (Isiah Pacheco) so it's no surprise that CEH is returning. Depending on how the draft shakes out, Dobbins could be signed also as a depth piece.
