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.

Khalil Herbert - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Thursday, September 14, 3:00 PM

Chicago Bears running back Khalil Herbert should be a focal point of the offense as the Bears try and get into the win column against the Buccaneers in Week 2. Herbert got off to a solid start in Week 1 but then the wheels fell off for the entire Chicago offense. He will face a Tampa Bay defense that allowed only 41 team rushing yards to the Vikings last week. The Bears offense is already at a crossroads one week into the season and playmakers like Herbert need to be involved. The talented back will carry RB3/4 fantasy value heading into Week 2.
