Week 9 at Indianapolis Colts
J.K. Dobbins had a nice game against the Steelers last week with Mark Ingram shelved. He wound up with 113 yards on 15 carries, splitting time with Gus Edwards. Should Ingram miss more time, Dobbins could continue to get increased work. If he sees 15 carries again, he’ll have a legitimate shot at RB2 numbers.
This week, Dobbins faces the Colts. It’s not a great matchup, as they rank second in the league in aFPA to opposing running backs, and just held the duo of Adrian Peterson and DeAndre Swift to eight yards on 11 carries last week. Still, assuming Ingram is out again, as expected, Dobbins has RB2/flex value due to potential volume.
