Per Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman, the team is working this off-season to expand 2nd year RB J.K. Dobbins’ role in the passing attack. (ESPN)

Fantasy Impact:

“I think he has got the skill set and the talent to really include him as a viable weapon in the passing game. That’s a big focus of what we’re doing right now,” said Roman. With Lamar Jackson at the helm, the Ravens haven’t targeted their running backs very much the past three seasons. In fact, it’s been an average of just 49 times per season in that time period. From an optics perspective, it looks like the Ravens do in fact want to throw the ball more in 2021. They drafted two wide receivers, including Rashod Bateman in the first round (and Tylan Wallace), and added Sammy Watkins via free agency. It’s also been reported Baltimore wants Jackson under center more, as opposed to pistol formation, this season. If all these reports are true and Dobbins can turn some of his carries into targets, he’s looking more and more appealing in half-PPR and full-PPR fantasy leagues in 2021. He should be drafted as a top-15 back and has the ability to finish as an RB1 this season.
