J.K. Dobbins

J.K. Dobbins got off to a fast start in his career with the Baltimore Ravens as he had 805 rushing yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie with an average of 6.0 yards per rushing attempt. Unfortunately, injuries have slowed him down after a torn ACL during the preseason that forced him to miss the entire 2021 season.

He would return in 2022 but suffered another knee injury that cost him about half the season but when he did play he was still producing like he did during his rookie season. Dobbins finished with 520 rushing yards, two touchdowns and an average of 5.7 yards per rushing attempt.

This past season was another one cut short as he suffered a torn Achillies in Week 1 and would miss the remainder of the year. Entering 2024, the backfield should run through James Cook but with Ty Johnson the only other running back the Bills are going to have to find another player to add.

J.K. Dobbins could be a low-risk, high-reward addition if he is able to show he is recovered from his injury and can be the complement to Cook.
