Ravens say all running backs have role

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said there are roles for all four of his running backs.

What It Means:

"Is that really a problem to have four guys breaking off big runs and making guys miss? There's roles there for those guys," Harbaugh said in reference to Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins, Justice Hill, and Gus Edwards. The Ravens head coach specifically said he believes Hill will take a big leap forward in his second season. Each back may have a role, but Ingram and Dobbins are expected to handle the bulk of the backfield touches while Hill and Edwards serve as a distant third and fourth on the depth chart. There's also reigning league MVP Lamar Jackson, who accounted for 29.5 percent of the Ravens' rushing attempts last season.

numberFire's models project Ingram for 199.4 touches and Dobbins for 147.8 touches in 2020. Hill and Edwards, meanwhile, are projected for a combined 45.5 touches (2.8 per game).
