3. J.K. Dobbins, RB, Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens are known for a high-powered rushing attack. Behind Jackson, the next best runner on the team is running back J.K. Dobbins.

Dobbins had a remarkable rookie season emerging as the primary back in the Ravens’ rotation. During his rookie campaign, Dobbins finished the regular season third in rookie rushing yards with 805.

That’s not the only feat the sensational running back managed last season. Dobbins also set the Ravens’ rookie rushing touchdown record previously held by the great Jamal Lewis (six).

Dobbins would move ahead of the franchise record for total touchdowns as a rookie (nine) surpassing Marquise Brown (seven) and Torrey Smith (seven).

In 2020, Dobbins finished his fantasy season with 150.5 points, 17th among running backs. With Mark Ingram no longer on the team, this backfield is mostly Dobbins for the taking. I project around 60 percent of the snaps going to Dobbins while 40 percent go to Gus Edwards.

While we only have one season on Dobbins, there is hope that he will build off his rookie campaign and become one of the great running backs this team has had.

Projected fantasy points: 189.6
