The Baltimore Ravens backfield is set to make the shift from Alex Collins for the remainder of the 2018 season official. On Saturday, the news came that the Ravens former starter had been placed on injured reserve due to a foot injury and will now miss the remainder of the year. As NFL Network’s James Palmer revealed, with Collins being placed on injured reserve, Kenneth Dixon was activated.
While Dixon, who was originally the team’s go-to pass-catching back, is now activated, that doesn’t necessarily mean much from a fantasy football perspective. It will be interesting to see how the Ravens opt to roll out Dixon, as he played in just one game this season but logged 13 carries for 44 yards and one touchdown.
It’s been rookie Gus Edwards who’s done the heavy lifting over the past two weeks, and he, along with Ty Montgomery are primed for solid roles to finish out the year. Let’s break down the replacements for Collins a bit further from a fantasy perspective.
