General News (Fri Nov 16): has been designated to return on the Reserve/Injured list, beginning his 21-day window to join the active roster or be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Week 11: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All RB vs CIN

FBG says: Great matchup. After a breakout 2017, Alex Collins continues to disappoint, from both a volume and a production perspective. He hasn't lost time to injury but has still been held below 60 yards in 8 of 9 games, averaging just 3.67 per carry in the process. Some of his struggles can be blamed on the banged-up, underachieving front line, which has oddly taken a step back with Marshal Yanda reinstalled. They blew open holes for Collins for much of last year but now sits 25th in our Matt Bitonti's rankings (with a C+ run-blocking grade). Collins is still entrenched as the lead runner, but it seems clear the Ravens don't envision him as a bell cow. Before trading for explosive ex-Packer Ty Montgomery, they were consistently feeding rushes to Javorius Allen and his career 3.68 average. Montgomery should make his Baltimore debut this weekend, not only banishing Allen to deep-reserve duties but also cutting a bit into Collins' shaky workload. Also a threat, if Joe Flacco can't go, will be rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson. Collins' arrow is pointing definitively downward, even in such a cherry matchup. He managed just 35 yards the first time he faced the porous Bengals. The Bengals' porous run defense continues to rank among the NFL's worst. Running backs as a whole are producing 5.08 yards per carry in this matchup, and lead runners have topped 85 yards in each of the last 4 games. They've actually played the slump-buster role of late, allowing Frank Gore, Peyton Barber, and Mark Ingram to all snap out of funks and exceed expectations. The line is riddled with big names but underachieves against the run, and with top linebacker Vontaze Burfict out, there are exploitable holes throughout the second level. That allows even mediocre runners to poke through the line and onto green grass, and chunk runs are a common occurrence against this unit.

Ravens | Kenneth Dixon designated to return (Fri Nov 16, 12:14 PM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) has been designated to return on the Reserve/Injured list, beginning his 21-day window to join the active roster or be placed on season-ending IR.

Our View: Dixon will probably push Gus Edwards or Ty Montgomery off of the roster, but he won't have a significant enough role to add in redraft leagues.

Ravens | Kenneth Dixon yet to receive league clearance (Mon Nov 5, 03:50 PM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is 'having issues behind our coaches control,' according to head coach John Harbaugh, who added the team has to wait for the league to clear him to practice and he has yet to receive clearance.

Our View: This is a mysterious situation to monitor if you're a Ravens fan. As a Fantasy GM, you've got no interest in Dixon unless you play in crazy deep dynasty leagues. The Ravens traded for Ty Montgomery last week and he'll start getting mixed into the offense in the near future.
