What to do with Mark Ingram, JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards in Week 6 fantasy football

We go over Mark Ingram, JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards’ fantasy football outlook ahead of the Ravens Week 6 matchup against the Eagles.

I’ll try to say something nice about of each the Baltimore Ravens’ three running backs. Mark Ingram leads them in carries and rushing yards. J.K. Dobbins has been the best receiving option as he has recorded nine of the trio’s 12 receptions. Gus Edwards has played the most snaps in each of the past two weeks, up to a season-high 25 in Week 5.

That balance and versatility can be good for the Ravens. It’s dizzying for fantasy owners.

In other words, there is no real leader here. They all mix in. Ingram is probably the safest of the bunch because he is still getting the most touches and can see some goal-line work... but that’s not saying much. Let’s also not forget that Lamar Jackson will continue to steal carries, yards, touchdowns and highlights from everyone here. And this problem isn’t going away. This is a well-knotted three-man committee with one of the NFL’s most electrifying players standing by, ready to jump into the mix as well.

Four running backs have reached double-digit fantasy points against the Eagles so far, led by Darrell Henderson Jr.’s 20-point effort in Week 2. Maybe one of these three will attain 20 fantasy points in Week 6. The only guarantee is you’ll have no idea who will.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

If setting you enjoy taking some extra-strength Tylenol after setting your lineups on Sunday, take a spin here. Again, Ingram seems like the safest bet. The better route, however, is to avoid this headache and keep all of these guys on your bench until future notice.
