J.K. Dobbins Expected To Have Surgery Friday

Monday, September 11, 4:49 PM

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) is expected to undergo surgery on Friday for his torn Achilles, according to a source. Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers recovered in less than six months from a torn Achilles two years ago, and Dobbins is aiming for a similar timeline with his recovery. In any event, fantasy managers in redraft leagues can safely drop Dobbins after just one week of the 2023 season. The 24-year-old will enter free agency next March, but he'll have to prove his health before any other teams take a chance on the injury-prone running back. With Dobbins now out of the picture, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will share Baltimore's backfield, with veteran Melvin Gordon III expected to join the roster from the practice squad.

Amon-Ra St. Brown Remains Must-Start In Tough Matchup

Wednesday, September 27, 4:49 PM

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has hauled in 21 passes for 275 yards and a touchdown through three games this season. He hasn't delivered a massive spike week yet, but that could come at any point. Although the Packers have allowed the ninth-fewest fantasy points to wideouts thus far, the Lions are by far the best passing offense it will match up with early in the season. As long as St. Brown is healthy and active, he should always be locked into fantasy lineups. It's worth noting Jaire Alexander (back) could miss this NFC North battle that could carry playoff implications.
