5'10'' / 212 lbs
Tops 100 scrimmage yards in loss
Dobbins rushed 13 times for 62 yards while catching four of five targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-17 wild-card round loss to the Bengals.
Dobbins managed to stretch the ball over the goal line on his two-yard touchdown catch to get the Ravens on the board in the second quarter. He was also Baltimore's most effective option on the ground, finishing with one more carry than Gus Edwards and eight more rushing yards than quarterback Tyler Huntley. After two surgeries on his knee, Dobbins finally looks to have regained pre-injury form, which will make the 2020 second-round pick out of Ohio State an enticing fantasy option in 2023 as the lead back in a run-first Ravens offense that's likely to be quarterbacked by Lamar Jackson (knee).

Set to face Bengals
Dobbins is listed as active for Sunday's playoff opener against the Bengals.
As is top tight end Mark Andrews, after both players were rested during Baltimore's regular-season finale last weekend. In his return to action Sunday, look for Dobbins to lead his team's backfield versus Cincinnati in a matchup in which the Ravens figure to lean heavily on their ground game in the continued absence of top QB Lamar Jackson (knee).
Dobbins (rest) is inactive for Sunday's game in Cincinnati.
Tight end Mark Andrews and guard Kevin Zeitler also are inactive after not having injury designations for the game. Other starters may be rested as well in preparation for the wild-card round, and QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder) joins QB Lamar Jackson (knee) on the inactive list. Dobbins, Andrews and Zeitler will be back for the playoffs; the real question is whether Jackson and/or Huntley will be.
Slated to rest for Week 18
The Ravens are expected to hold Dobbins out for rest purposes in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Bengals, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Though Dobbins doesn't carry an injury designation for the contest, the Ravens are inclined to err on the side of caution with the running back, who returned from injured reserve Week 14 and has logged double-digit carries in each of the team's subsequent four games. Dobbins should take back the lead role out of the backfield during the wild-card round of the playoffs, but in his expected absence for Week 18, Gus Edwards is in line to serve as the Ravens' top option on the ground. Meanwhile, Justice Hill and Kenyan Drake should re-enter the mix for change-of-pace roles behind Edwards.
Leads backfield with 93 yards
Dobbins rushed 17 times for 93 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 16-13 loss to Pittsburgh.
This Steelers-Ravens rivalry game lived up to the billing, producing a physical, low-scoring bout. Dobbins did his part by churning out big chunks on the ground despite facing six-man defensive fronts at times. Head coach John Harbaugh stuck with the hot hand after fellow back Gus Edwards (three carries for two yards) struggled early in the contest. It will be important to monitor the result of the Bengals' game on Monday, as the Ravens will still have a chance to play for the division crown next week if Cincinnati loses to the Bills. If Baltimore enters Week 18 with nothing meaningful to play for, it wouldn't be surprising to see the oft-injured Dobbins' playing time limited in preparation for postseason play.
