Dobbins, 23, was injured in Baltimore's preseason game against Washington. In 15 games last year (including one start), Dobbins ran for 805 yards at 6.5 yards per carry. A second-round draftee out of Ohio State, Dobbins finished first in rushing DVOA last season, fourth in success rate, and sixth in DYAR. Gus Edwards takes over as Baltimore's starter, but there is little depth behind him—Justice Hill, the next player on the depth chart, has only 285 rushing yards in two seasons since being drafted in the fourth round in 2019.

1 Last year

Dobbins: 7.35 ANY/RA

Edwards: 5.51 ANY/RA. 5.27 in 2019. 5.32 in 2018.

Justice Hill: 5 ANY/RA. 4.57 in 2019.

Good difference. Baltimore will survive though like they always do. Nate McCrary might make the team now, interesting. 


3 Doubt it

Has Collins worked in an option-flavored offense before? QB pulling back the ball at the mesh point etc?  That ball-handling piece of it is important.

When Lamar took over as the starter in 2018 week 11, Collins went to the bench (foot injury). They didn't get much work together in-game.  Maybe they overlapped one start?
