|Dixon is on my radar in a big way and should see his value climb as we move deeper into camp and the preseason. He runs with a fury befitting his 5’11, 218 lb stature, and is also a sure handed receiver that was considered by many to be the best pass catching back in the 2016 draft. The second leading touchdown scorer in FBS history (87 TDs), Dixon rushed for 1,000 yards in three of his four years at Louisiana Tech, and combined to catch 63 passes in his junior and senior years. He seems to be a perfect scheme and mentality fit for this Ravens team, and easily possesses the biggest upside of the three Baltimore backs. Barring injury, all three of these guys are going to get touches, but I’d target Dixon late in the draft and sit on his potential. He might be slow to see a bulk of touches, but much like the Cardinals’ David Johnson last season, given enough time his talent and ability should help get him on the field.
|Kenneth Dixon hit with 4-game suspension|
Violating NFL policy on PEDs

FFToday's Take: This will take some of the shine of Dixon's upcoming fantasy hype. Dixon would likely have the Week 1 starting running back in Baltimore but after this suspension and the likely addition of Danny Woodhead, Dixon's value takes a hit.
| Ravens want to add another running back|
Looking for more big plays
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jan 9, 10:30 am
|Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh believes Kenneth Dixon and Terrance West proved themselves this past season. He feels those running backs made names for themselves.
"We need another back," Harbaugh said. "What type of back that is? I think we’re talking about it. We have a pretty good idea of the type of back we want to add." (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Ravens are displeased with their running game the past two seasons and apparently Dixon didn't show enough this season to make them comfortable making him their franchise running back. Harbaugh did mention Buck Allen who was inactive the second half of the season. The Ravens could be looking to add a back in this year's draft.
