9. Is this how the Baltimore Ravens running back timeshare will work the rest of the way?
The Baltimore Ravens running split was essentially an even-time share in the first week without J.K. Dobbins. Justice Hill handled 54% of the snaps, while Gus Edwards was at 46%. Hill ran more routes and was more active in short and long-distance downs. However, they split the two-minute drill snaps.
Overall, there is a slight lean to Hill, but it is not by much. It makes sense because they have differing skill sets. Justice Hill is speedy and elusive and catches passes. Edwards is a better blocker, brings power, and a thump.
If they need to get an explosive play, they look to Hill; if they want to drain the clock, they look to Edwards. Of course, Melvin Gordon could end up in the mix, but at this rate, it seems like a pretty easy split to decipher. Will this continue, or will one of the two-step up and handle more in the coming weeks?
