    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) was suspended for two additional games by the National Football League on Friday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: Dixon, who is on the Reserve/Injured list due to a torn meniscus, was already suspended for the first four games of 2017. This suspension is due to a violation of the substance abuse policy, giving him six games in total. Since he is on IR, the penalty will transfer over to the 2018.

    Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) will be sidelined for the regular season after undergoing surgery on his medial collateral ligament Tuesday, July 25. The recovery time is expected to be four to five months.

    Huddle Up: Hello, Terrance West. West and Danny Woodhead now comprise the two-man backfield for the Ravens. West more than held his own in a similar last year and deserves consideration as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3, although he has less appeal in PPR leagues with Woodhead there. Woodhead remains an RB2 candidate in PPR formats if he can stay healthy.

    Updating an earlier report, Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) suffered a torn meniscus and will require surgery, according to a source. The hope is he just requires a trim of the cartilage, but his status will be determined after surgery.

    Huddle Up: Dixon is suspended for the first four games, but this will cost him valuable time in training camp. It's possible the first half of the season will be a wash for him as he'll have to get caught up to game speed. He could still be worth a final-round flyer for depth.

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

    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.

  • Posted: 12/25/2016 5:12pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 12/12/2016 9:50pm ET

    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.
