After the way Justice Hill ran the first two weeks, you would think that the Baltimore Ravens would give him minimal work if they do at all. This week will be about a big workload for both Melvin Gordon and Keaton Mitchell. Owen Wright may get some work too, but these are the names to watch.

For Gordon, the only real question is whether he has something in the tank left and if any other team has interest. He is unlikely to make the roster and has a great chance to make the practice squad as an emergency stash.

The main attraction is Keaton Mitchell, though. The first two weeks ensured that Mitchell would make it over Gordon if it came to it. However, with JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill in the mix, the job status of Mitchell is up in the air, regardless of him beating out Gordon.

Mitchell flashed as a kick returner, but the Ravens have Devin Duvernay. Justice Hill outdid all of the big runs Mitchell made. This will be his last chance to put a stamp on the roster. His best case is ripping off multiple big plays, putting the Ravens in a spot where they fear they will lose him.
