C’mon man....u been doubting JK this whole time, and giving people bad advice to drop him. Now all of a sudden u own him?? Lmao

getting a taste of dobbins and then getting covid is similar to just the tip and no nut. The teasing needs to stop.

Damn he's got receipts

What are some realistic projections for him this week? 12 carries for 40 yards, 4 catches for 30 yards? Slim chance of a TD?

 

I think that's pretty spot on, assuming Ingram doesn't play. 

If Ingram does play, who the hell knows?!

And that's probably his floor projection. But a good one nonetheless

I'd be thrilled with that. I'm in a bye week pinch and will not cut Dobbins just to get someone else. Been holding for too long to cut him for players they'll be irrelevant in 2 weeks

Mark Ingram (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Ingram is dealing with sprained ankle and had the bye week to rest up, but he still doesn't seem ready to play this week against the Steelers. If Ingram sits, Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins should form a two-man committee, though we wouldn't put it past the Ravens to get Justice Hill involved in some capacity.

What is the overall issue with this kid? Staff doesn't trust him? Has he been that bad as far as when he touches the ball? What are the beat writers saying out in Balt?

A bit of him having to earn it and equal parts bad game scripts and bad offensive game plans imo.

He is averaging over 6 yards a carry and catching the ball very efficiently too.

Just a matter of them unleashing him, they are a smart team and I think they might do just that moving forward.🤞

All of the situations are not the same but I think it's interesting/odd that all of the highly drafted rookie RBs have been brought along pretty slowly with the exception of CEH. They are mostly getting roles but not nearly the workload you'd expect when you look at some of the guys they are competing with for touches.

There's a YouTube video of all his carries week 1-5 imo he looks great. Especially with no pre season

[...] I still have sneaky hopes that the ravens will just give the ball after the bye and unleash him.  Ingram out, Gus is Gus, etc.  I’ve also read speculation that they’ll just burn up Gus like they did Ingram, and then give it to JK, which makes sense too.  
 

He’s worth the risk on the end of my bench.

[...] That highlight reel was intriguing but not super-exciting, some passing plays that he made something of but a lot of getting blown up due to unfortunate play calls. Still seems a touch lightweight at times but a nice burst.

OSU grad.  Ive watched every Dobbins game at Ohio State.  I have zero worries about him.  He is the best back ive seen at Ohio State in my lifetime other than Zeke.  He was absolutely ridiculous last year.  In a different year, he could have won the Heisman with the #s he put up, especially against elite opponents.  Also, a 5* recruit out of Texas so he also has elite pedigree.  Works his a** off, great kid, great attitude.  Rarely if ever goes down on first contact.  Whenever it happens, he will blow up and blow up big.  Id buy all shares in dynasty.

The Steelers have pretty much swallowed up all the running backs they have faced this season.  This might not be the week to start Dobbins.  Week 9, though...

ELITE contact balance. Just a damn good back. 

You have to think the coaches notices this too, no? I mean Ingram is not the future and Gus is pretty much a JAG. Why not give this kid more burn? I mean they invested a high pick on him, I just don't understand. His talent above the former backs has to be evident in practice I would think. It sure as hell is to me watching those highlights. Perhaps the coaches just didn't want to put too much on his plate with the wacky offseason?

I think these next couple games out of the bye will be very telling. If he still is getting scraps behind Ingram and Gus, I think it may be time to cut bait or just know that Dobbins won't be startable unless Ingram misses significant time.

Man it sucks. Ingram is hurt and we'd all be so stoked right now about Dobbins outlook if they weren't playing the Steelers. Here's to him somehow finding a way to having a great game so the transition begins.

I realize this was 12 years ago and Greg Roman is the OC now but this situation reminds me a lot of Ray Rice’s rookie season. 
 

Rice was by far the most talented RB on the roster and despite that split carries with LeRon McClain (sp) and Willis McGahee.
 

Harbaugh didn’t give him the keys until the following year. 
 

Rice’s rookie stats and game log shows he only exceeded 8 carries 3 times one of which was his first game of the season.

He’s very cheap right now and Ingram is dinged up but given the fact that GE is playing great right now this looks like a case of a coach who just isn’t going to commit to a rookie barring a bunch of injuries. 
 

Bummer

Conveniently he’s the same number as Rice too
