J.K. Dobbins Player Overview

What You Need To Know:

  • After a down 2018, Dobbins erupted for a huge 2019 at Ohio State. He proved durable, elusive and versatile.
  • Baltimore selected him in Round 2 in April. GM Eric DeCosta called Dobbins a “3 down back.”
  • While Mark Ingram might open as the lead rusher, we expect Dobbins to finish 2020 as Baltimore’s most productive RB.


Dobbins opens eyes at Ohio State

Dobbins set an Ohio State freshman rushing record with 1,403 yards. That set the scene for an ultra-productive 3-year stint.

2018 was a down year for Dobbins, but the Texas native still tallied 12 total TDs and another 1,000-yard season.

Dobbins elevated his game in 2019 with 301 carries and an elite 4.01 yards after contact per attempt, per Pro Football Focus. He registered his highest PFF grade (84.0) while shouldering 324 touches. In fact, Dobbins never missed a game due to injury in his career.

Not even a high ankle sprain — suffered on December 28th in the Fiesta Bowl — could keep him out. Dobbins described the injury as “significant,” yet he finished the loss to Clemson with a whopping 18-174-1 rushing line (plus 6 catches).

“I think I have tremendous vision,” Dobbins said via Cleveland.com. “I can do it all. I can be explosive. I can grind it out. And I’m also a leader. I think I make everyone around me play better.”

Baltimore agreed, making him a Round 2 pick in April.


Year 1 forecast

Dobbins brings an all-around skill set that’d provide RB1 potential in the right situation. In Baltimore, though, he’ll compete with proven vet Mark Ingram for touches. Last year, Ingram ranked 15th among 45 RBs with 100 carries in Pro Football Focus’ rushing grades. He also graded out well above average as a pass blocker. Fantasy-wise, that translated to 1,018 yards and 15 total scores.

What’s noteworthy: Ingram only handled 13.5 carries per game. Lamar Jackson chipped in 11.7 per game; Gus Edwards added 8.3 per outing. It’s…
