J.K. Dobbins Fantasy Outlook 2021: More, Same or Less Valuable in 2022 Dynasty Offseason?

One thing we want to cover for all the dynasty managers is whether or not we believe a player will gain value between now and this time next year. When it comes to Dobbins, the team was heavily on Dobbins returning next season with the same ADP, two members of the team feel his ADP will rise entering 2022, and another two feel his ADP will decline.

Same: 8
Higher: 2
Lower: 2

With that being said, will the team feel the same way when it comes to buying, holding or selling?

J.K. Dobbins Fantasy Outlook 2021: Buy, Sell or Hold?

When it came down to it, we had five analysts that voted to “buy” and three that voted to “sell.” The remaining four team members voted to “Hold.” This is what they had to say: “With Ingram gone the door is wide open for the Dobbins era to truly begin. While Lamar still loves to tuck and run, defenses are wising up and I expect a more traditional run game to be employed. Buying everywhere I can.”

Buy: 5
Hold: 4
Sell: 3

J.K. Dobbins Fantasy Outlook 2021: Where Will He Rank vs. All Running Backs?

The team for the most part feels that J.K. Dobbins has a starting role on their roster in 2021. There are, however, some much higher on him that others. One analyst said, “Talented and dynamic player on a good offense that should become more balanced this year. If Jackson runs just a little less, Dobbins can really take off.”

Another said, “I really like this player, but it’s the lack of passing game involvement that concerns me. The Ravens targeted the RB 51 times a season ago and I don’t see that changing anytime soon”

Overall, the team believes that Dobbins will finish his sophomore season in the RB13-18 range. Another analyst said, “Dobbins is the future in Baltimore. He showed flashes last year, however, Gus Edwards and Lamar will still cut into his workload. While that will affect his maximum performance, it will help keep him fresh and limit the hits he takes..”

When it was all said and done, the 12 analysts predicted where Dobbins would finish.

High: RB10
Low: RB24

A finish inside the top-18 running backs is the thought of the majority of the team. Two of our team have him in the RB10-RB12 range and two have him in the RB19-24 range.
