|A suspension and a knee injury cost Dixon's 2017 season and most of the goodwill built up from his solid rookie season in 2016. As a rookie he showed three-down skills and his talent alone should be enough for him to at least push Allen for the No.2 gig. The Ravens are by no means committed to Collins as the long term answer, and I do think Dixon will be given every opportunity to prove himself. Because he missed his entire sophomore campaign and is third on the depth chart at the moment he's a great flyer option at the back end of drafts. But watch his ADP climb as the offseason wears on if he shows the chops to challenge the guys ahead of him.
|More work ahead for Kenneth Dixon?|
HC expects RB's role to grow going forward
By: Doug Orth | Tue Dec 11, 1:10 am
|Harbaugh said that he expects RB Kenneth Dixon's role to grow going forward. Dixon ran hard and well Sunday. Wasn't quite an even split, but Gus Edwards, Ty Montgomery and Dixon all played a similar amount of snaps. (The Athletic - Jeff Zrebiec)|
FFToday's Take: Dixon has been the most talented back in the backfield pretty much from the time he arrived in 2016, but he simply has been unable to stay on the field. If Dixon were to become the lead back in Baltimore, he would become the fourth already this season, following Alex Collins, Javorius Allen and Gus Edwards. With the Ravens possibly leaning toward a three-man backfield, it will be hard to trust any of them as a fantasy starter over the remainder of the fantasy playoffs.

Gus Edwards expected to play

|We have placed RB Alex Collins on the Injured Reserve list and activated RB Kenneth Dixon. (Ravens on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Gus Edwards (ankle) is expected to play against the Falcons along with Ty Montgomery. Dixon will be up as the No.3 running back and is flier worthy in deep leagues if you're looking for a lottery ticket during the fantasy playoffs.
| Gus, Collins listed as questionable|
Edwards practices on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 30, 3:10 pm
|RBs Gus Edwards (ankle), Alex Collins (foot), OLB Tim Williams (illness), DB Anthony Levine Sr. (ankle) and CB Tavon Young (groin) are all questionable for Ravens. Harbaugh also said team considering adding RB Kenneth Dixon to roster for Sunday. They’ll have to make that move by 4 pm tomorrow. (Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: In related injury news Joe Flacco is listed as doubtful. Edwards was able to practice on Friday and should be good to go for Sunday against the Falcons. We'll get a better feel the for running backs likely to play if the Ravens activate Dixon from IR on Saturday.
