2021 Fantasy Football Breakout - RB J.K. Dobbins
Breakout: JK Dobbins
2020 2nd round pick JK Dobbins came to the Ravens who are a team that loves to run the ball and likes to distribute the ball between all their RBs. Dobbins had a good rookie year in 2020 going 134/805/9 while sharing touches with Lamar Jackson(159), Gus Edwards (144), and Mark Ingram (72). With Ingram leaving in free agency look for Dobbins to become the RB1 with Edwards working as more as the 3rd down back. Dobbins still has to deal with Jackson who loves to run the ball but as opposing defenses try to stop Jackson look for Dobbins to get even more touches. With the Ravens looking to throw the ball more often as they have added multiple WRs in the offseason the running game will be key to that becoming effictive.
He should be available in the mid to late 2nd round in most fanatsy drafts in 2021 when most of the top RBs are taken. I see Dobbins becoming the top back for the Ravens as i predict 180/1100/10 as he steadily adds his name amongst the top RBs in the NFL.
