Travis Etienne Jr. With 86 Scrimmage Yards In Win At Texans

Sunday, November 26, 7:55 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. rushed 20 times for 56 yards, adding four receptions on six targets for 30 yards in a win at Houston. On a day where the Texans clamped down on the ground game it was promising to see Etienne still draw six targets in the game, which was tied for third on the team with Calvin Ridley. The former first-round pick received multiple carries inside the ten-yard line but wasn't able to convert any of them into points. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence also vultured yet another touchdown from Etienne, punching in a score from one yard out in the second quarter. It wasn't the performance that fantasy managers hoped against a vulnerable Houston rush defense, but Etienne continues to see top-level utilization in this offense which makes him an easy RB1 start every week.

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.
