Alex Collins - RBPosted 5/17/18 6:59pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens' decision not to select a running back in the 2018 NFL Draft is a sign that they are comfortable with RB Alex Collins as their starter, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Collins proved to be a workhorse between the tackles once he was given a chance, and he should remain the lead back on early downs and near the goal line this year. He won't do a lot in the passing game, but draft him as a RB2 in standard formats.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 5/5/18 11:08am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has been impressive with his accuracy and smarts during the rookie minicamp, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Jackson likely will spend his rookie season as the No. 2 quarterback for the Ravens but could start as soon as 2019. He will be a popular pick in keeper leagues but will not have a lot of value in standard leagues.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 5/5/18 8:11pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson's role in the offense is a work in progress, according to head coach John Harbaugh, but Harbaugh said the staff is working on finding the best ways to put Jackson in position to make plays.
Huddle Up: Jackson may have a small package of plays he runs this season, but he's not taking Joe Flacco's job this year. Still, his long- term potential as a dual-threat quarterback make him worth rostering in keeper leagues and dynasty formats.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 4/29/18 2:18pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will face 'no urgency' in regards of being rushed into the starting lineup, according to NFL.com's Jim Trotter.
Huddle Up: According to Trotter, the plan with Jackson is to start at ground zero and throw everything at him to see what he does well and what they need to focus on. It makes sense, as Joe Flacco is a serviceable quarterback. Whenever Jackson becomes the starter - most likely 2019 - he should be considered a potential QB1 in fantasy given his incredible ability as a runner. As for 2018, he may possess more fantasy upside than any other backup quarterback.
Jaleel Scott - WRPosted 4/29/18 2:34pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jaleel Scott is expected to compete for the No. 4 receiver job and could also be a red zone target because of his size.
Huddle Up: Scott would have value in fantasy leagues if he becomes a productive red zone target, so he could be a waiver wire option during the season.
Jaleel Scott - WRPosted 4/28/18 10:36am ET
The Baltimore Ravens selected New Mexico State WR Jaleel Scott with the 132nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Scott is one of the taller receivers in the drafts, so he could be a red zone target. He probably will not be an option in standard leagues but could be a late-round pick in keeper leagues.
Mark Andrews - TEPosted 4/27/18 7:18pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens selected Oklahoma TE Mark Andrews with the 86th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Andrews will give the Ravens some beef at the tight end position, as he can be a mismatch for smaller linebackers trying to cover him. He is a tight end in the mold of Dennis Pitta, and if he can block it will be an added bonus.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 4/27/18 8:53pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will not unseat QB Joe Flacco as the team's starter in 2018, according to head coach John Harbaugh. 'Joe Flacco is our quarterback, and that's the thing that you've got to remember. Lamar's gonna have a great chance to develop. I think you get to this stage in a quarterback's career, you see it done in New England and you've seen it done in a lot of places,' Harbaugh said.
Huddle Up: Jackson will be holding the clipboard, seeing his only game action in the preseason or if disaster strikes during the regular season such as a long-term injury to Flacco. Jackson is a nice dynasty pick in most fantasy leagues, but in seasonal plays he'll only be a waiver wire addition in season if he even sees the field at all.
Hayden Hurst - TEPosted 4/26/18 7:56pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens selected South Carolina TE Hayden Hurst with the 25th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, April 26.
Huddle Up: Hurst likely will take over the starting job as a rookie and should have a solid role in the passing game. Hurst can be at least a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues with the chance to become a No. 1 tight end as the season goes on.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 4/26/18 10:32pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is likely to sit for a year and then take over as part of an offensive overhaul in 2019, according to Ian Rapoport. QB Joe Flacco has no guaranteed money remaining on his contract after the 2018 season.
Huddle Up: There was little doubt when the Ravens moved up to take Jackson that he factored heavily in their long-term plans, but it sounds as though they may move on from Flacco in short order. While Jackson's 2018 fantasy value is nil, he has some appeal in keeper formats.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 4/24/18 11:34pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is unlikely to have his fifth-year option picked up and could be traded or released before the team has to pay Perriman a $649,485 bonus due on the third day of training camp, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.
Huddle Up: With the GM already on record as this summer being 'make or break' for Perriman it was all but assured the Ravens wouldn't pick up his option, but cutting ties on the former first-round pick now seems possible as well. Given his injury history and lack of production when healthy he's not a viable fantasy option at this time.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 3/31/18 6:44pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins has 'proven' he can be the starting running back, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Collins should handle the power back role for Baltimore next year, and he can be a RB2 in standard formats.
Ben Watson - TEPosted 3/28/18 9:24am ET
Free-agent TE Benjamin Watson (Ravens) agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, March 28. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Watson will have some fantasy luster in the offense, but his upside is limited to a mix-and-match TE2.
Ben Watson - TEPosted 3/27/18 1:42pm ET
Free-agent TE Benjamin Watson (Ravens) visited the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, March 27, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Any target of Drew Brees is a worthwhile fantasy asset, but Watson would need to stave off Coby Fleener and Josh Hill, among others, in order to become fantasy relevant in the Big Easy.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 3/22/18 3:23pm ET
Free-agent WR Mike Wallace (Ravens) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 22, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Wallace likely will take over the role that Torrey Smith had last season. He is coming off a solid 2017 season when he recorded 748 yards and four touchdowns. He has fantasy value because of his big-play ability and can be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 3/20/18 9:10am ET
Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) reportedly signed a one-year contract worth $5 million with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, March 20.
Huddle Up: The Colts need help and depth in a lots of places, and Grant should see a significant amount of time on a team that doesn't have any proof players at receiver besides T.Y. Hilton. Ideally, Grant ends up being Indianapolis's third receiver who gets some run in the slot. He could flirt with fantasy relevancy in 2018, but he would probably need an injury to Hilton or Chester Rogers in order for it to happen.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 3/18/18 4:51pm ET
Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (ankle) passed a physical with the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, March 18, but left without a deal. He will visit with the Oakland Raiders next, a source said.
Huddle Up: Grant had a deal in place with the Baltimore Ravens, but he flunked their physical due to an ankle injury he suffered in the regular season finale. It appears the minor setback will not keep him from finding a home soon. Indy might be a better landing spot for his fantasy appeal, since Oakland has Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson, etc.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 3/18/18 6:17pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree will be 'a reliable receiver' for QB Joe Flacco, according to retired WR Anquan Boldin. 'I had a chance to play with Crab for two or three years out in San Francisco,' Boldin said. 'Like I said, competitive guy, he?s a crafty guy, a veteran guy, a guy that can really catch the ball.'
Huddle Up: Crabtree should immediately become Baltimore's top possession guy, and he's also been productive in the red zone. The Baltimore passing game isn't great, but Crabtree should still be a solid WR3 in 2018.
Michael Campanaro - WRPosted 3/17/18 3:23pm ET
A return by free-agent WR Michael Campanaro (Ravens) has not been ruled out by Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. The GM said the door hasn't been closed on Campanaro, and the team has had conversations with him.
Huddle Up: Campanaro hasn't really been much of a factor on the offensive side of the ball, but he has shown glimpses of brilliance on special teams. That's where his value is to his real-life team, and his fantasy value remains rather minimal regardless of where he lands.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 3/17/18 3:22pm ET
Free-agent WR Mike Wallace (Ravens) could still return to the Baltimore Ravens, as general manager Ozzie Newsome said he hasn't closed to door on re-signing the veteran. The club has had conversations with Wallace.
Huddle Up: Wallace has bounced around the league, spending his five seasons with three different teams. He has re-emerged in Baltimore with 124 catches and 1,765 yards with eight touchdowns over the past two years with the Ravens. The team has signed Michael Crabtree and John Brown during the offseason, so it's uncertain if and where Wallace would fit in. His fantasy value might be higher elsewhere.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 3/17/18 4:29pm ET
Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) will visit with the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Grant had agreed on a deal with the Baltimore Ravens, but an ankle injury suffered in the regular season finale caused him to fail the physical and nullify the deal. It would be ironic if Grant landed in Oakland, as the Ravens turned to former Raiders WR Michael Crabtree after getting away from Grant.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 3/14/18 10:24am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin is being released Wednesday, March 14, according to a source. He would have been a salary cap hit of $7.5 million.
Huddle Up: Maclin's release really opens the door for John Brown and Ryan Grant to make some noise in Baltimore, especially if Mike Wallace is not re-signed. Brown, Grant, Breshad Perriman and Chris Moore would lead a subpar receivng corps, but the Ravens could very well draft another receiver. This is a situation to perennially stay away from.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 3/13/18 7:10am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead will be released Tuesday, March 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Woodhead still has sneaky PPR value, maybe as a RB4, depending on where he lands.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 3/13/18 2:11pm ET
Baltimore Ravens exclusive rights free agent RB Alex Collins received a tender offer Tuesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Collins took over the starting job during the regular season and finished with 973 yards and six touchdowns. He should receive most of the work at running back next season and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 3/2/18 6:29pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens are doing 'considerable work' on the quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, and La Canfora believes the Ravens could spend an early-round pick on a potential successor for QB Joe Flacco.
Huddle Up: Even if the Ravens go with a quarterback early on in the draft, Flacco should still be the starter next season. That said, he is a low-ceiling QB2.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 2/26/18 7:40am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead is believed to be in jeopardy of being cut this offseason.
Huddle Up: He wasn't a real good fit in the offense and could still provide small spurts of PPR viability. Depending on where he lands, he could be a solid RB4.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 2/2/18 8:23pm ET
Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said there are 'bigger fish to fry' than finding QB Joe Flacco's replacement, and Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun believes the Ravens won't be looking at quarterbacks in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Flacco is solid enough as far as NFL starters go, but he's firmly in the QB2 range for fantasy purposes. He has just one 4,000-yard season under his belt, and he has thrown for 20 touchdowns or less in four of his last five seasons.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 1/4/18 8:42am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins wasn't guaranteed the starting spot for 2018 as head coach John Harbaugh said the team is looking to upgrade everything.
Huddle Up: Collins broke through with 973 rushing yards (4.6 yards per carry), six touchdowns, 23 receptions and 187 receiving yards this season. He should be in a good spot to at least be part of a 50-50 split. He'll be a low-end RB2 in next year's drafts.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 1/4/18 9:12am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco may be mentoring a successor in the near future, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said the Ravens will 'for sure' be talking about drafting a quarterback this year with Flacco turning 33 years old in a couple of weeks. Baltimore has not selected a quarterback in the first five rounds of a draft since they took Flacco with the 18th overall pick in 2008.
Huddle Up: The bottom line is that Flacco is not good, and he hasn't been good for a while. The Ravens need new life at the quarterback position to replace Flacco's rotting corpse. As has been the case every season since 2008, don't draft Flacco as your starting fantasy quarterback.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 12/31/17 5:25am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (knee) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Wallace was listed as questionable on the injury report but participated in all three practice sessions during the week, including the final two as a full participant. With WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) doubtful to play and the Ravens battling for a playoff spot, Wallace should be viewed as a WR3 option this week.
