RB - BAL - OUT
Week 2 Outlook
Justice Hill missed Week 1 with a thigh injury and will not be active in Week 2.
Hill will join a crowded backfield in Baltimore soon, but not this week. He's a decent stash in deeper leagues but will likely fall third on the depth chart.
Justice Hill (thigh), who missed Week 1, was back at practice on Wednesday.
Hill will muddy up the waters in an already-crowded backfield with Mark Ingram II, J.K. Dobbins, and Gus Edwards. He's got some value in deep leagues but it appears that Ingram and Dobbins are the ones to keep on your rosters for now.
Justice Hill missed practice again Friday with a thigh injury and likely won't play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Hill had a quiet rookie season in Baltimore behind Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards, but he is rumored to have a receiving role out of the backfield this season. However, the Ravens used their second-round pick to add J.K. Dobbins to an already crowded backfield. If Hill can't stay on the field to prove his worth, he could end up buried on the depth chart. Mark Ingram remains a solid option as an RB2, but fantasy owners should hold off on starting Dobbins until it's clear what his workload will be.
Running back Justice Hill was listed on Baltimore's first injury report of the 2020 season on Wednesday.
The Ravens used a second-round draft pick in 2019 to acquire Hill, who was used sparingly in Baltimore's run-centric offense rushing for 225 yards and two touchdowns on just 55 carries. Hill showed signs of durability in his rookie season, playing in all 16 regular season games behind Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards. His absence could lead to increased carries for rookie running back J.K. Dobbins, who showed up as fourth on the Ravens depth chart Tuesday.
Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill caught 4-of-5 targets for 26 yards in a 28-12 loss to the Titans in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
Hill didn't receive a carry but was useful in the passing attack. The rookie runner didn't make much of an impact for the Ravens this season but he should be in line for an increased role on the offense in the 2020 season. He is a solid trade target in dynasty leagues this offseason.
