Kenneth Dixon, RB, Baltimore Ravens
Dixon had 80 total yards and a rushing touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, and in two games since coming back from a knee injury he has 123 total yards with 16 carries as the No. 2 back behind Gus Edwards.
Even with Edwards leading the running back rotation and Lamar Jackson taking carries, there’s room for Dixon to produce in the Ravens’ backfield. In Week 15 they get the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who entered Week 14 allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to running backs and they’ve now allowed 20 total touchdowns to the position. The Los Angeles Chargers (Week 16) and Cleveland Browns (Week 17) also sit in the bottom half of the league against running backs.
Dixon is simply a RB3 or flex option right now, but that’s enough to make him a worthy add in leagues of 12 teams or more.
