Kenneth Dixon out for season

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon (knee) will miss the entire 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact

Dixon, who suffered a torn meniscus Monday, will miss the entire 2017 season as a result of the injury. Per Rapoport, he underwent surgery Tuesday to have his medial meniscus repaired (not trimmed) and has a recovery timeline of about four-to-five months. Currently, the Ravens have Terrance West slated to open the year as the starter on early downs, with Danny Woodhead assuming the role of the team's third down back/ primary receiver out of the backfield. However, with rushers that include Matt Jones, Ryan Mathews and Carlos Hyde all rumored to be available, I would expect Baltimore to make a corresponding move to beef up their RB depth chart sooner rather than later.

Kenneth Dixon suffers meniscus tear

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon (knee) suffered a torn meniscus and will undergo surgery to repair the injury.

Fantasy Impact

Dixon, who is already serving a four-game PED suspension to open the 2017 season, could miss an extended period of time as a result of his torn meniscus. Although there is currently no timetable for his return, Rapoport said there will be more definitive answers post-surgery. It's looking more and more like Terrance West and Danny Woodhead will be the Ravens' top two rushers for the upcoming season. However, it wouldn't be a surprise if Baltimore addresses the RB position via trade or free agency. With the Eagles and Redskins expected to move on from Ryan Mathews and Matt Jones respectively, either one of those veteran backs could find a home in Baltimore if they are, in fact, released.

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.
