Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Facing increased competition after suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon (suspension) said he mistakenly took a substance without the proper NFL medical exemption, ESPN.com reports.

Previously expected to battle Terrance West for the Week 1 starting job, Dixon will instead prepare for an October debut in a backfield that now includes pass-catching maven Danny Woodhead, who joined the Ravens within the first few hours of free agency. It doesn't sound as if Dixon intends to fight his four-game suspension, instead vowing to focus on how he can help the team once his ban has concluded. This doesn't preclude the talented young runner from making an impact in his second NFL season, but the combination of four missed games and Woodhead's signing unquestionably dampers Dixon's 2017 outlook.

Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Suspended for four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon will be suspended for the first four games of the season for violation the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

This throws a serious wrench in Baltimore's backfield plans, as Dixon was positioned for a key role heading into his second professional season. His absence could improve Terrance West's early-season outlook, but it might also inspire the Ravens to add another running back (or two) through free agency and/or the draft.

Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Finds end zone in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Dixon had 10 carries for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Bengals and he added three receptions for 19 yards.

The rookie out of Louisiana Tech had a solid finish to his first season in the NFL, piling up 372 yards and three total touchdowns on 82 carries. He did not debut with the Ravens until Week 5, but his role steadily increased down the stretch despite the presence of Terrance West. Given that West played on a one-year contract with Baltimore in 2016, it's not necessarily a guarantee that he'll be back with the team next season. Dixon routinely displayed an ability to run through contact and he was rarely brought down by the first defender he met in the open field. If West does not return in 2017, Dixon would have a clear path towards being the Ravens' featured back in his second season.

Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Generates career-high 57 yards rushing in Week 16 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dixon gained 57 yards on 12 carries and secured one of three targets for one yard in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Steelers.

Dixon out-touched Terrance West on the afternoon in terms of rushing opportunities, as the latter checked in with 10 carries. The rookie was productive with his relatively modest opportunities, with his 57 yards rushing representing a career high. Dixon has impressively been at 4.0 YPC or more in five of his last seven games, flashing plenty of potential as he increasingly gains experience. He'll look to finish off the season in strong fashion against the Bengals in Week 17.

Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Finds end zone against Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Dixon rushed for 36 yards and a score on nine carries in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

Dixon put Baltimore up by two scores with a quick toss to the left and a 16-yard score early in the fourth quarter. The score was the rookie's second in as many weeks, but Sunday also snapped a three-game streak of double-digit touch games with at least 75 total yards for Dixon. Of particular concern to Dixon, who looked to be taking the lead job as recently as last week, was that he was held catchless during the contest. Dixon entered Sunday with at least four catches in four of his last five games, including eight last week, making him a particular threat in PPR leagues.
