Ravens Hoping To Bring Back Gus Edwards

Thursday, February 29, 6:40 PM

Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said that door has not been closed on free-agent running backs Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) returning in 2024. Edwards led Baltimore's backs in 2023 with a career-high 810 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns and has spent his entire five-year career with the team. Right now, the team has just two RBs under contract who played last year -- Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell, who is recovering from a season-ending torn ACL. But with a deep free-agent class at the position that includes Derrick Henry, Saquon Barkley, Josh Jacobs, Austin Ekeler and Tony Pollard, it remains to be seen if Edwards or Dobbins will return. Edwards set a new career-high with his 13 TDs in 2023, but he also had a career-low 4.1 yards per carry, and his 2024 fantasy value will be clouded until we know where he'll end up in free agency.

Tyler Allgeier News

Tyler Allgeier Has Quiet Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 9:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier was not able to get much going against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The second-year back rushed six times for 24 yards, while hauling in all three of his targets for 10 yards through the air in the loss. Despite the Falcons drafting Bijan Robinson in the first round, Allgeier remain a consistent part of the Falcons offense. He rushed 186 times for 683 yards with four touchdowns, while adding 18 receptions for 193 yards and an additional touchdown through the air. The assumption is that the Falcons are going to stick with this two-back committee next season. That means, Allgeier will hold some flex appeal and possibly more if Robinson ever goes down with an injury in 2024.
