Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 7/19/18 5:58am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman will likely have his $649,485 roster bonus picked up by the deadline Saturday, July 21. He'll have to battle for a spot on the 53-man roster.
Huddle Up: Perriman still has tools that made him a first-round pick in 2015, but he has missed so much time that he is really behind the 8-ball. He's probably not worth drafting unless one of the top three receivers go down.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 7/18/18 12:34pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco 'got a lot of good work in' with his wide receivers last week, according to WR Willie Snead.
Huddle Up: Flacco hasn't usually been one to go the extra mile during the offseason, so it's reassuring to see him make the effort to build better chemistry with his receivers. There is an underrated crop of pass-catchers in Baltimore, but Flacco has proven time and again that he is not a reliable starting fantasy quarterback and he could eventually be overtaken by talented rookie Lamar Jackson.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 7/6/18 8:17pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree's 579 career receptions are more than the rest of Baltimore's receivers combined, and Crabtree's eight touchdown receptions last year were just three fewer than all of Baltimore's receivers combined.
Huddle Up: Crabtree should immediately become Joe Flacco's most dependable target, especially in the red zone. He's a WR3 candidate in 2018.
Hayden Hurst - TEPosted 6/19/18 1:14pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst singed his four-year rookie deal Tuesday, June 19. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Hurst should immediately be given a sizable role in Baltimore's offense as he aims to be the Ravens next Todd Heap. That being said, rookie tight ends are notorious for disappointing in their inaugural seasons. Draft Hurst as a backup in redraft leagues.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 6/17/18 8:20pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he plans to have throwing sessions with his receivers over the summer. 'So we'll be getting together, and it'll be good for us,' Flacco said.
Huddle Up: Flacco is trying to develop chemistry with some new additions to the receiving corps, and the presence of Lamar Jackson probably adds a little motivation. Even with some extra work over the offseason, Flacco is a midrange QB2, at best.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 6/16/18 6:25pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson took all the reps during team drills Thursday, June 14, and had his best day throwing the football, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Jackson will probably need an injury to Joe Flacco to make a significant impact in redraft leagues this year, but his Michael Vick-like skills make him a must-own option in keeper formats.
John Brown - WRPosted 6/14/18 8:45am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown (knee) returned to practice Thursday, June 14.
Huddle Up: Brown could have some luster in the slot as a WR5 in fantasy.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 6/13/18 10:50am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco appears to be more motivated this offseason as a result of the Ravens drafting QB Lamar Jackson and signing QB Robert Griffin III, according to FS Eric Weddle.
Huddle Up: Flacco needed some motivation following a lackluster 2017 campaign. The starting job is his to lose as he enters his 10th season, but both Jackson and Griffin give Baltimore options and more creativity with play calling. As it stands, Flacco is cemented in backup fantasy quarterback territory.
Terrance West - RBPosted 6/13/18 1:05pm ET
Free-agent RB Terrance West (Ravens) is signing an undisclosed deal with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, June 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This is a good situation for West to be signed in to, at least for the first four games of the season. Mark Ingram will be suspended during that time and West may carve out a nice role if he stays in shape and learns enough of the offense. Even so, he's merely a late-round flier.
John Brown - WRPosted 6/13/18 3:35pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, June 13, because of a knee injury he suffered Tuesday, June 12.
Huddle Up: Brown probably will sit out the rest of the minicamp to make sure he will be ready for training camp. Brown should be a top three receiver for the Ravens this season if he is healthy and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 5/25/18 10:38am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree was called 'the guy' by QB Joe Flacco when the latter was asked about chemistry with his new receivers following an OTA session on Thursday, May 24.
Huddle Up: The Ravens did well to add a plethora of veteran receivers such as John Brown and Willie Snead, but Crabtree is the only receiver on the roster who has experienced any prolonged NFL success. Owners should expect well over 100 targets for Crabtree, who should be able to contend for WR2 status in fantasy if he can stay healthy this season.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 5/24/18 11:46am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco was relatively mum regarding his opinion of the Ravens selecting QB Lamar Jackson with their first pick. 'When you draft anyone in the first round, there is always a plan,' Flacco said. 'What that plan is? I don't know. I'm worried about right now.'
Huddle Up: Flacco has to be a little miffed that his career-long franchise used their first-round pick on a fellow quarterback. Flacco's job is in trouble, but he was never a reliable fantasy asset anyway. He can be avoided in traditional leagues.
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.
