Justice Hill Showed Speed, Strength and Fantasy Penny Stock Upside in Preseason Week 2

There’s been some fantasy buzz surrounding Ravens rookie RB Justice Hill, and he confirmed why he’ll be a factor in the Ravens’ backfield during Thursday night’s game vs the Packers. The rookie out of Oklahoma State racked up 49 yards and a physical goal line touchdown on ten carries and showed all of his attributes throughout the night. On his goal line score, he broke a tackle at the line of scrimmage before knifing in between two defenders to cross the goal line. Then, he showed his quickness on multiple carries by snapping ankles and finding extra yardage. On a team that’s set to run the ball a shitload this season, Hill’s unique skill-set will allow him to possess standalone value with extreme upside if Mark Ingram goes down. 

Coming out of an Air Raid offense at Oklahoma State, Hill was clocked as the NFL Combine’s fastest running back at a 4.40 flat. With Greg Roman calling the shots and Lamar Jackson at quarterback, the Ravens will only rival the Seahawks for the league’s most run-heavy offense. Although there is direct competition in front of him for third-down back duties in the beloved Kenneth Dixon, it wouldn’t take much for Hill to be more reliable and readily available every week than what Dixon has brought to the table, thus far. Still, Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards will likely always get the bruising “in-between the 20’s role,” but Hill brings a different element to the backfield that meshes perfectly with Jackson.

As of now, Hill has settled at our RB51, around the Darwin Thompson, Ronald Jones and Jaylen Samuels area of the Big Board.
