J.K. Dobbins Injury Sets Up Gus Edwards And Lamar Jackson To Lead Rushing Attack

  • J.K. Dobbins is out for the season with a torn ACL sustained in the preseason.
  • Lamar Jackson’s rushing total is set at 945.5 yards.
  • Gus Edwards' rushing total is set at 1000.5 yards.

BALTIMORE – The Baltimore Ravens have received some devastating news recently as their RB J.K. Dobbins will miss out on the upcoming 2021-22 season with a torn ACL. Dobbins was listed as the Ravens RB1 and had high expectations for helping the team as he was going into his sophomore season to lead the Ravens rushing attack.

Before the injury, Dobbins had sportsbooks setting his season totals at 1050.5 rushing yards and 10.5 rushing and receiving touchdowns. With Dobbins now gone for the year, not only will it affect the season totals as a whole on online sportsbooks for both Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards, but it will take a toll on their fantasy value as well.

Lamar Jackson Value

Rushing Yards 2021-2022 Regular Season – Lamar Jackson

  • OVER 945.5 -115
  • UNDER 45.5 -115

Let's start with the leader of the Ravens offense, Lamar Jackson. His season rushing totals saw the slightest of changes by just 20 yards as his rushing yards total opened at 925.5, while his rushing touchdown total stayed put.

This is surprising to say the least, as Jackson will now be forced to take on even more of the rushing attack this year. In the last two seasons, Jackson has had no problem in hitting the OVER in both categories with 1,206 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns in 2019 and 1,005 rushing yards and seven touchdowns in 2020.

With Dobbins injury, Jackson is set up nicely to hit the OVER on both of his NFL odds and his fantasy football value has been taken to new heights.

Gus Edwards Value

Rushing Yards 2021-2022 Regular Season – Gus Edwards

  • OVER 1000.5 -110
  • UNDER 1000.5 -120

Rush & Rec TDs 2021 -2022 Regular Season – Gus Edwards

  • OVER 5 -115
  • UNDER 5 -115

Gus Edwards' role in the 2021-22 season has shifted drastically as he will now serve as the lead running back for the Ravens. His rushing yards total saw a huge jump with this news as they first opened up at 625.5 and now sit at 1000.5.

The 1000-yard mark should come easy to Edwards because the athlete has gone for over 700 yards in each of his last three seasons as the backup running back. Now that he is taking full control of the backfield, he should have more than enough opportunities to push his OVER over.

As for his touchdown total, this should be considered a gift, especially being that he was the primary goal-line back with his 6’1, 238-pound frame. It would be safe to say that anytime the Ravens find themselves inside of the 10-yard line that Edwards will have his name called which will help him obtain the OVER on this wager too.
