6. Will the Baltimore Ravens roll with Keaton Mitchell?

The Baltimore Ravens had been waiting on Keaton Mitchell for a while. When the Ravens put him on the IR before the season, it was expected he would not be needed until around now. However, when Dobbins was announced out for the season, the plans changed. The Ravens have tried JUstice Hill and Kenyan Drake, but neither has had that spark that Mitchell provided on Sunday.

Mitchell returned from the IR in time for the Lions game but tweaked his hamstring on his first touch and missed the Cardinals game. This time, he bounced back quickly and broke out. Mitchell had nine rushes for 138 yards and a touchdown. His speed was always undeniable, and when you have Gus Edwards punching you in the face and Lamar Jackson causing you to freeze, it buys the space and time for Mitchell to excel.

This was great for one game, but what can he do to sustain this? Can he consistently be the lightning to the thunder of Gus Edwards? Can he stay healthy? He is not a big back, and that is part of the reason he fell to a UDFA. Or do the Ravens really have something?
