Dobbins, Edwards coming off ACL injuries

Ravens add experienced depth in backfield with Mike Davis.

Baltimore’s top two backs – J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards- tore their ACLs before the start of last season and likely won’t return to the field this year until training camp. (Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: We know the Ravens were decimated at the running back position last season and Davis will give them some insurance if Dobbins and Edwards are slow to get up to speed in 2022. Davis’ fantasy value is close to zero and solely dependent on the health of the RBs ahead of him on the depth chart.

Hopkins has withdrawn his appeal

#AZCardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins withdrew his appeal, source said. So, now official:

Hopkins is suspended without pay for the first six games of the 2022 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: This lengthy suspension will put a damper on Hopkins’ fantasy value this season. Newly acquired Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Rondale Moore should open the season as starters for Kyler Murray. Hopkins battled hamstring and knee issues last season which limited him to ten games. He did score 8TDs however and will likely be considered a middle-round target in redraft leagues this summer.
