    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon could have a bigger role in the offense this year, according to Ryan Mink of

    Huddle Up: Dixon closed last year on a high note, but a four-game suspension and the signing of Danny Woodhead quickly derailed the hype train. He could still end up leading the backfield when all is said in done, and Dixon could be a sneaky pick in the later rounds.

  • Posted: 3/9/2017 1:28pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon has been suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the league policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

    Huddle Up: Although the Ravens certainly didn't agree to terms with Danny Woodhead solely to cover themselves for such an occurrence, it now makes a bit more sense why Baltimore sought him in free agency. Dixon's stock obviously takes a hit, probably to the point where he will be a late-round pick at best in redraft leagues this summer.

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon rushed for 44 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17. He also caught three passes for 19 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Dixon received more playing time as the season went on and should have a chance to compete for the starting running back job during training camp next season. He could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in drafts if he is the starter.

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon carried a team-high 12 times for 57 yards and added one catch for one yard in a 31-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Dec. 25.

    Huddle Up: Dixon had two more carries than Terrance West and was far more efficient. The Ravens seem content to determine the backfield pecking order on a weekly basis, making both Dixon and West risky flex plays in the regular season finale.

    Baltimore Ravens rookie RB Kenneth Dixon rushed 11 times for a team-high 39 yards in the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots Monday, Dec. 12. He also had eight receptions for 42 yards and a touchdown on a team-best 11 targets.

    Huddle Up: Dixon appears to have blown past Terrance West for the top spot on the depth chart in the Balto backfield, as West had a total of just six touches to 19 for Dixon.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 9:15pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens rookie RB Kenneth Dixon rushed six times for a team-high 56 yards in the Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins. He also had four receptions for 21 yards on his four targets.

    Huddle Up: Dixon continues to see a significant role in the offense, but Terrance West is also producing and not going away quietly into the night. Unless West suffers some sort of long-term injury to force him to the shelf, Dixon's fantasy ceiling is rather limited down the stretch.

  • Posted: 11/26/2016 7:25pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon is averaging 6.5 yards per carry over the last two games, and he said he has slimmed down and has become more confident in his knee and the playbook.

    Huddle Up: Dixon's role is slowly increasing, and he could be a flex option sooner rather than later thanks to his skills as a receiver. He should be stashed in all but the shallowest of leagues.

  • Posted: 11/14/2016 8:07pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) feels like he is 100 percent recovered after missing time due to a medial collateral ligament injury in his left knee. 'I feel like I'm back 100 percent, and I'm ready for the workload that the team gives me,' Dixon said. Dixon led the team's tailbacks with 6.3 yards per carry in the Week 10 game against the Cleveland Browns, and he had one 17-yard rush called back due to penalty.

    Huddle Up: Dixon is worth stashing away if you have the roster flexibility, but he is going to need a lot more than six carries to warrant plugging into the starting fantasy lineup.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 9:27pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon has six carries for 38 yards and five catches for 42 yards in a 28-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Dixon's carries could remain limited, but his work in the passing game makes him a potential flex candidate in PPR formats. Grab him if he happens to be available.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 2:25pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon could see more playing time going forward if head coach John Harbaugh has his way. Dixon has been limited since returning from a sprained knee in early October.

    Huddle Up: Dixon would still split time with Terrance West and Lorenzo Taliaferro, but he may be most valuable in the passing game. Dixon should be picked up in deeper leagues, but don't start him until his role is clearer and he starts making a consistent impact.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 5:18pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon rushed two times for 11 yards and he added one catch for one yard on two targets in the Week 6 game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners who scooped up the rookie were hopeful he could carve into Terrance West's touches, but West had a giant performance in this one and Dixon was barely used. He is only worth keeping around as a reserve at this point in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 5:40pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: Dixon isn't starter material in Week 5, but he should be stashed in most formats. His role should only increase as the year goes on.

  • Posted: 10/3/2016 9:04am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is expected to make his NFL debut in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Dixon's eventual return was going to be a big deal in fantasy up until Terrance West had himself a day against the Oakland Raiders (21 carries, 113 yards and a touchdown) on Sunday. In theory, the rookie should contribute as the Ravens' third-down back right away, replacing Javorius Allen in that role. He'll probably need an injury to West now in order to become the lead back, but he should be on a roster in every fantasy league.

  • Posted: 10/1/2016 9:26am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is targeting a Week 5 return, but the rookie will likely be eased back into the mix given head coach John Harbaugh's history of not giving rookie running backs heavy workloads, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

    Huddle Up: A committee in Baltimore has been the most likely option the whole time and makes sense initially how long Dixon has been out, but the fourth-round pick brings the kind of explosiveness to the table that Terrance West and Justin Forsett cannot. It might take a while for it to happen, but owners should expect Dixon to assume the lead-back role no later than mid-November.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 7:04pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Dixon should be back on the field soon, and while he might not have much value right away, he is worth stashing in case he emerges as the top option in a muddled Baltimore backfield.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 1:16pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Dixon is expected to miss at least two more games, but he's still a potential stash option for your fantasy bench. Neither Justin Forsett or Terrance West are shining out of the backfield, and Dixon could be the closest thing the Ravens have to an every-down back. It's a situation to monitor over the coming weeks, but Dixon could be a nice asset down the fantasy stretch drive and into the playoffs.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 1:24pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 8.

    Huddle Up: Dixon is expected to miss the first few weeks of the season, so Justin Forsett, Terrence West and Javorius Allen will manage the running back duties for now. Forsett is still the better option, but Baltimore's backfield is just too crowded to rely on any one guy.

  • Posted: 8/28/2016 7:00am ET

    Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said RB Kenneth Dixon's (knee) sprained knee isn't considered overly serious.

    Huddle Up: Dixon has had a strong preseason and could be worth a late-round flier in fantasy leagues containing 12 or more teams, although Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Terrance West will also be battling for carries in the Baltimore backfield.

  • Posted: 8/24/2016 10:23am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is still in line to be the starting running back, in the opinion of ESPN's Jamison Hensley, but RBs Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon project to share third- down work with RB Terrance West serving as a short-yardage back in the red zone.

    Huddle Up: As an undersized journeyman, Forsett's reign atop the depth chart could be short lived, and the potential of a multi-faceted rushing attack isn't ideal for his fantasy stock. West presents nice value as a late-round flier in standard and touchdown-heavy settings, whereas Allen presents similar potential in PPR leagues. Dixon is likely the most talented back of the quartet, but expect him to have to bide his time for an opportunity in 2016. The rookie is nothing more than a stash option at this point.

  • Posted: 8/12/2016 8:43am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon had nine carries for a team- high 44 yards in a 22-19 win over the Carolina Panthers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: Dixon is part of deep group vying for touches behind Justin Forsett. Draft him as a RB5 and hope he can eventually emerge as the main backup.

  • Posted: 8/4/2016 9:48am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 4.

    Huddle Up: Dixon is expected to be the team's third running back, but Terrance West is making noise in the RB4 competition. West could pose a threat to Dixon's touches if he's as explosive as advertised. Both backs are RB5 considerations in fantasy.

  • Posted: 7/28/2016 2:27pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 medial collateral ligament sprain, according to a source. The injury is considered minor, but the team likely will proceed with caution.

    Huddle Up: Tough break to open camp for the fourth-round pick, and definitely expect the Ravens to take it easy with the rook after what happened to their top pick a year ago in WR Breshad Perriman, who still is waiting to make his NFL debut.
