Justice Hill’s Dynasty Value | Fantasy Outlook, Ranking, and More

Justice Hill's dynasty value has yet to take off due to limited usage -- is now the time to stash the 26-year-old running back?

Baltimore Ravens RB Justice Hill’s dynasty value has yet to gain steam due to the number of mouths to feed in the backfield, but with injuries and contract situations, he could be as involved as ever in 2024.

Does that make Hill a trade target for savvy fantasy football managers who are trying to get ahead of a spike in opportunities?

Justice Hill’s Dynasty Outlook

Might there be something here as soon as 2024? The name of the game in dynasty leagues is to patch together the back end of your backfield. Hill could prove to be an answer to that question despite never having run for 400 yards in a season.

Hill is entering his age-26 season and in the final year of his deal with the Ravens. Running back Keaton Mitchell showed plenty of potential but suffered a season-ending injury, and lead back Gus Edwards is set to test the free agency waters this offseason.

Is a bell-cow role potentially available in an elite offense?

2023 Ravens Ranks

  • Second in offensive points per game
  • Fourth in yards per play
  • Sixth in yards per game
  • Seventh in first downs per game
  • Eighth in red-zone efficiency

Hill’s profile requires a bit of a leap of faith. He doesn’t have a game in his NFL career with more than 13 carries and hasn’t had a 160-carry season on his résumé since 2017 with Oklahoma State.

The ability to handle a featured role for 4+ months is generally a skill that I like to see before projecting it. But if the Ravens are lacking options come OTAs, Hill could walk into that sort of volume.

Over the past three seasons, in his limited action, Hill is averaging 4.9 yards per carry. I wouldn’t project that level of efficiency sustaining if he’s carrying the ball 13-17 times per game, but Todd Monken’s offensive system worked in Year 1, and there’s no reason to think that this offense as a whole regresses.

I like betting on situations as much as I do players at the running back position, and Hill’s spot lines up to give him a chance to see his fantasy value spike in the short term.

Should You Trade Hill in Dynasty?

The RB position in dynasty — outside of a few exceptions — needs to be viewed the same way as gas station hot dogs. That is, they can be a means to an end to get you to your short-term destination.

Mitchell profiles as the leader of this backfield when healthy, but Hill could assume a valuable role in the early weeks of 2024 and potentially work into a committee situation should he succeed in this high-powered offense.

Due to Hill’s résumé lacking much in the way of fantasy numbers, his asking price in the trade market isn’t overwhelming, which is why I’m throwing out an offer to acquire him or holding for now if I have him stashed.

For his career, Hill has seen 20.7% of his touches come through the passing game, a rate that stood at 25% in 2023. That level of versatility gives Hill multiple ways to impact your fantasy box score when given the opportunity — something I expect to be the case in the early stages of 2024.

Should he open the year with an increased role, Hill not only gives himself the chance to earn more work for the Ravens down the stretch of this season, but he also puts on tape what he’s capable of for future employers.
