Kenneth Dixon suspended four games

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon is suspended for four games for violating the league's PED policy.

Fantasy Impact

Dixon, who was expected to enter 2017 atop Baltimore's running back depth chart, was suspended for the first four games of the year for PED use by the NFL. The impending second-year rusher came on strong at the end of the 2016 season scoring all three of his touchdowns from Week 14 and beyond. This will be the second consecutive year Dixon will be sidelined for the month of September -- he missed the first four games of 2016 with an MCL injury.

Kenneth Dixon the more productive Ravens running back in Week 17

Kenneth Dixon gained 44 yards on 10 carries and caught three passes for 19 yards on Sunday against the Bengals. He also scored a rushing touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Dixon out-touched Terrance West 13 to 9 and out-gained him in total yards 63 to 35 in the season finale. Unfortunately, Dixon and West largely split work for the second half of the season, leaving neither as a reliable fantasy option. Dixon appears to be the future in Baltimore, and he should likely be considered an RB2 in 2017 if he gets the job to himself.

Kenneth Dixon rushes for 57 yards against Steelers

Kenneth Dixon gained 57 yards on 12 carries and caught one of three targets for one yard against the Steelers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Dixon and Terrance West both got 13 touches on Sunday, further demonstrating that they are both an equal part of the Ravens backfield. Unfortunately, fullback Kyle Juszczyk got the only rushing touchdown for the Ravens on the day. Expect Dixon and West to again split the backfield work in Week 17 against the Bengals.

Kenneth Dixon saves his day with a second half score

Kenneth Dixon rushed nine times for 36 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Week 15 win over Philidelphia.

Fantasy Impact

Dixon had a quiet first half and was on his way to a disappointing day fantasy-wise, but a second half score salvaged his afternoon. Out-touched by veteran RB Terrance West 17 to nine, Dixon remains part of rotation with West and will be a risky flex play in Week 16 at Pittsburgh.

Kenneth Dixon totals 81 yards and a touchdown in Week 14

Kenneth Dixon rushed 11 times for 39 yards and hauled in 8-of-11 passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore’s Week 14 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Kenneth Dixon looks to have overtaken Terrance West for the starting running back job in Baltimore after the rookie out-touched the veteran 19-6 on Monday night. Despite struggling in the first half and getting tackled for a safety, the rookie showed impressive running ability in the second half and making the Patriot defenders work to bring him down. The eight catches and the 11 targets were both season highs for Dixon as he was the beneficiary of numerous check-downs by quarterback Joe Flacco. Dixon’s touchdown catch came on play-action pass where he was wide open in the flat and was able to walk in for an eight yard score. Next up for Dixon and the Ravens is a matchup with the Eagles in Week 15 where Dixon will be a solid flex play for the second round of the fantasy playoffs.
