The struggle to see the field for Dobbins continues, though it seems there may be a light at the end of the tunnel. It may be too late for fantasy purposes, but he would be an interesting stash for the playoff run, in case he somehow becomes the lead back we've been waiting two years for him to become.
Dobbins, who was placed on injured reserve Oct. 22 after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery, has been designated to return from IR. He can be activated to the Ravens’ 53-man roster at any point over the next 21 days. Dobbins, who suffered a significant knee injury last preseason, has 35 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown this year. It will be a crowded backfield upon his return. Edwards led the way last week when he returned from his injury, and when Edwards was out, it was Drake.
After missing the entirety of the 2021 season, Dobbins has played in only four games this year, and may not be back until Week 13. Gus Edwards could return to action as early as this week but hasn't played himself since 2020. This backfield is a mess at the moment, with Kenyan Drake being the only usable piece, and that is only in the case that Edwards gets ruled out.
Once activated he'll have 21 days to get ready to play. Dobbins broke out a bit last week so the potential return of Edwards will now make for a bit more of a crowded backfield. However the Ravens could take it slow with Edwards so we'll need to see more of a timeline. Edwards may be worth a stash if you need RB help.
