Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 9/21/16 1:16pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.
Huddle Up: Dixon is expected to miss at least two more games, but he's still a potential stash option for your fantasy bench. Neither Justin Forsett or Terrance West are shining out of the backfield, and Dixon could be the closest thing the Ravens have to an every-down back. It's a situation to monitor over the coming weeks, but Dixon could be a nice asset down the fantasy stretch drive and into the playoffs.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 9/20/16 4:54pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta is tied for first among tight ends with 12 catches. He is second with 141 yards and he is third with 16 targets.
Huddle Up: Time will tell if Pitta is back for good or if his recent production is an anomaly. He figures to continue to be the No. 1 tight end in Baltimore with Benjamin Watson out for the year. If Pitta is available and you're in need of a tight end, pick him up.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 9/18/16 2:20pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta caught nine passes for 102 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Pitta was targeted 12 times during the game and appears to have a strong hold of the starting tight end job. He is still a risky player for owners because of his injury history, but he should be at least a No. 2 tight end in most leagues that can start against favorable matchups.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 9/18/16 2:12pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco went 25-for-45 with two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Flacco struggled during the early part of the game but played better as the game went on. He appears to be completely recovered from the knee injury he suffered last season and could be an option in daily fantasy leagues next week against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 9/18/16 2:39pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace caught four passes for 41 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Wallace has caught three touchdowns in the first two games and appears to have found a role in the passing game. He should be owned in all leagues and could be a flex option for owners.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 9/18/16 2:36pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught three passes for 64 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Smith was targeted six times during the game and will continue to be one of the starting wide receivers for the Ravens. He should be a reliable option for fantasy owners this season as a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.
Kamar Aiken - WRPosted 9/16/16 7:41pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken played 53 percent of the offensive snaps and 16 snaps on special teams in Week 1 after playing nearly 83 percent of offensive snaps and just 14 total snaps on special teams in 2015.
Huddle Up: Improved depth at the receiver spot will make it tough for Aiken to duplicate his 75-catch campaign from last season. The Browns represent a juicy matchup in Week 2, but Aiken is still a shot-in-the-dark play.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 9/15/16 10:20am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (calf) said he believes he will be able to play in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Perriman caught one pass for 35 yards in his NFL debut last week and should have a solid role in the passing game. Perriman does have a favorable matchup in Week 2 but probably should only be used in deeper leagues at this point.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 9/15/16 3:51pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace is averaging 20.5 yards-per-catch over his career against the Cleveland Browns, the highest mark of his career opposite any team in which he's recorded at least 10 receptions. Facing the Browns, Wallace has hauled in 17 catches for 348 yards.
Huddle Up: Wallace was a sleeper pick by some coming into the new season, and he got out to a good start in Week 1 after registering three catches for 91 yards and a touchdown versus a solid Bills defense. Time will tell if he can sustain meaningful production on an every-week basis in his new colors, but as far as Week 2 is concerned, Wallace looks like he can be a fine WR3 plugin.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 9/14/16 10:42am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (calf) is dealing with a minor calf injury, which is why he was held out of practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: Perriman is a low-priority receiver in the majority of fantasy settings, as he saw just two targets in Week 1, albeit he snatched one for 35 yards. There is some potential for Perriman to emerge later this season, but dealing with an injury already is concerning after he missed all of the 2015 campaign.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 9/14/16 10:53pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco will face the Cleveland Browns in Week 2. Over his past seven starts against the Browns he has completed 149 of his 246 pass attempts (60.6 percent) for 1,709 yards (244.1 yards per game) with nine passing touchdowns, three interceptions and three rushing touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Flacco is a nice sleeper in deeper fantasy leagues as a low-end QB1 against the lowly Browns, who were picked apart by rookie Carson Wentz for his first NFL win in Week 1. Flacco won't put up elite fantasy numbers, but he'll flirt with 250-275 yards and a pair of scores.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 9/11/16 6:27am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) will start Week 1's game against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Pitta is playing for the first time since suffering a major hip injury in 2014, so he should be viewed as a risky option in all fantasy formats. Owners may want to see him in a game or two before they consider using him in their lineups.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 9/11/16 9:15am ET
Baltimore Ravens TEs Dennis Pitta (finger) and Maxx Williams (knee) are active for the team's Week 1 game.
Huddle Up: Pitta will be the starting tight end and will be playing for the first time in several years. He will be a risky option because of his injury history but could be used in deeper leagues. Williams should receive a few targets but is not a strong fantasy option.
Javorius Allen - RBPosted 9/11/16 9:11am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen has been declared inactive for the team's Week 1 game.
Huddle Up: Justin Forsett probably will receive most of the work against the Buffalo Bills with Terrance West also seeing playing time. Forsett could be a No. 2 running back in deeper leagues and a flex option in standard leagues. West could also be a flex option for some owners.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 9/11/16 2:15pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace caught three passes for 91 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Wallace showed he could still be a deep threat with his 66-yard touchdown reception. He could waiver wire option for owners looking to add another receiver but likely will be only a flex option in deeper leagues at this time.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 9/11/16 2:09pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett rushed for 41 yards on 10 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. He also caught three passes for 15 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Forsett received the start in Week 1 but shared snaps with Terrance West. The Ravens likely will continue to split the running back reps between two or three running backs, which hurts the fantasy value of Forsett. Forsett could be a flex option at this point but is not a weekly option.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 9/11/16 2:23pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught five passes for 19 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Smith led the team in receptions and targets during the game and likely will post better numbers as the season goes on. He should be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most fantasy leagues.
Terrance West - RBPosted 9/11/16 9:53pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West ran 12 times for just 32 yards in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, and he added two receptions for six yards. He split the tailback touches with RB Justin Forsett, who ran 10 times for 41 yards while adding three receptions for 15 yards.
Huddle Up: A RBBC, or running back by committee approach, is the worst nightmare for fantasy owners. It's uncertain who will emerge as the bellcow in this offense, and both basically turned in the same type of productive. For fantasy purposes, avoid both until a clear-cut starter emerges.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 9/11/16 9:52pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace posted three receptions for a game-high 91 yards in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, including a 66-yard game-changing touchdown. He was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: Wallace has always been a speed burner, but he has been a square peg in a round hole in previous stops in Miami and Minnesota. If he and Joe Flacco continue to be on the same page Wallace might re-emerge as a top fantasy option. So far, so good.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 9/8/16 9:07am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett said he will start in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and is ready for 20 to 25 carries if needed. Forsett may be part of a committee at the position because head coach John Harbaugh said he would like to get all of the running backs involved.
Huddle Up: Forsett probably will receive a majority of the carries against the Bills, but Terrance West and Javorius Allen should also receive playing time. Forsett can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues, but he may lose some value as the season goes on.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 9/8/16 1:24pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: Dixon is expected to miss the first few weeks of the season, so Justin Forsett, Terrence West and Javorius Allen will manage the running back duties for now. Forsett is still the better option, but Baltimore's backfield is just too crowded to rely on any one guy.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 9/8/16 9:55pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett, RB Terrance West and RB Javorius Allen will all see playing time at some point against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, offensive coordinator Marc Trestman said Thursday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: Baltimore's backfield is a nightmare for fantasy owners, and the situation will only become worse when Kenneth Dixon returns from injury. Forsett is probably the best bet to lead the way for now, but West, Allen and Dixon are worth stashing in case one emerges as the lead back.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 9/7/16 1:12pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) and TE Maxx Williams (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: It is not known how Pitta and Williams will be used, but both should receive some targets in Week 1. Pitta is a risky option since he has not played in a few years, so owners may want to see him play in a game before considering using him. Williams will have to share snaps and is not a great fantasy option at this point.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 9/5/16 8:08am ET
Free-agent RB Justin Forsett (Ravens) has agreed to re-sign with the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Sept. 5. Terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Forsett is expected to have a big role in Week 1. He's a low-end RB2, but he has bust potential that makes him a better RB3.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 9/4/16 8:39pm ET
Free-agent RB Justin Forsett (Ravens) is expected to re-sign with the Baltimore Ravens and play a significant role on offense in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: After being cut a couple of days ago, it sounds like Forsett will be back and in a big way. Scoop him up if a fellow owner cut him loose.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 9/3/16 8:19am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) and TE Maxx Williams (undisclosed) are participating in practice Saturday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: It appears like Pitta and Williams will have a chance to play in Week 1, but owners should monitor the situation. Pitta has a chance to be the starting tight end with Benjamin Watson out for the season, but he likely will have a solid role in the passing game even if he does not start. Pitta probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues but could be an option for owners in daily fantasy leagues against favorable matchups.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 9/3/16 1:07pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett was released Saturday, Sept. 3, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Javorius Allen and Terrance West probably will share carries at the start of the season with Forsett no longer on the team. Allen can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues, while West should be a decent No. 3 back. Kenneth Dixon could see more carries as the season goes on and could be a late-round option in leagues because of his potential.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 9/1/16 7:28pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) made his preseason debut against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Sept. 1, finishing with two catches on four targets for 25 yards.
Huddle Up: It was Perriman's first NFL action, and while he still has some catching up to do after missing all of last season, he is worth a look as a late-round lottery ticket.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 8/29/16 5:20pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) will play in the final preseason game if he is cleared by the doctors, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said he would like to see Perriman play before the regular season begins.
Huddle Up: Perriman has not played in a game since being drafted last season and could use some work before Week 1. He likely will be the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for the Ravens this season and could see a decent number of targets. Perriman could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 8/28/16 7:00am ET
Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said RB Kenneth Dixon's (knee) sprained knee isn't considered overly serious.
Huddle Up: Dixon has had a strong preseason and could be worth a late-round flier in fantasy leagues containing 12 or more teams, although Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Terrance West will also be battling for carries in the Baltimore backfield.
