Steve Smith - WRPosted 12/15/14 9:12am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith became the 18th player in NFL history with 900 career catches in the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Not too shabby for Smith, whom the Panthers thought was done when they kicked him to the curb this offseason. Like he said in his postgame interview, just ask his wife about his stamina.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/12/14 2:39pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) is participating in practice Friday, Dec. 12. Smith looks gimpy and uncomfortable running routes.
Huddle Up: Ravens coach John Harbaugh is holding out hope saying Smith will be a game-time decision, but most signs are pointing toward a second straight missed game for the wideout. Keep your Plan B in place until you hear otherwise.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/12/14 5:50pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Smith seems have made progress, but will still be a game-time decision Sunday. He was active in Week 14 but didn't play after experiencing swelling in his knee in pre-game warm-ups, but he should play if he's active this week.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/11/14 11:04pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Smith has missed two straight practices after sitting out Week 14, and his Sunday status is very much in doubt. Kamar Aiken, who broke out with a 6-65-1 performance last week, could be in line for more work.
Lorenzo Taliaferro - RBPosted 12/9/14 12:27am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro has foot and ankle sprains and is considered day-to-day.
Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on as the rookie received the most backup work spelling the less-than-100-percent Justin Forsett this past Sunday in Miami.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/8/14 8:29pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) has a sprained knee, according to head coach John Harbaugh. There was no further information on Smith's status or timetable.
Huddle Up: Smith was active Sunday, but experienced swelling in his knee during warmups and was held out. Smith owners will have to monitor practice reports this week.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/5/14 12:10am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) said his right knee has progressed with treatment and rest the past few days.
Huddle Up: Smith hasn't practiced the last two days so Friday will be big for the wideout who leads the Ravens with eight TD catches.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/5/14 6:43pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 5, and is probable for Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins. Smith was optimistic about his chances of playing on Thursday.
Huddle Up: Smith's fantasy owners can keep riding the red-hot WR, who's caught a TD pass in five of his last seven games.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 12/5/14 6:43pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 5, and is questionable for Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins. Forsett was downplaying his knee injury as 'regular soreness' earlier this week.
Huddle Up: You're no doubt rolling with Forsett if he's active Sunday, but he could wind up seeing fewer touches than usual if the knee is still acting up.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 12/4/14 10:28am ET
Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (knee) will start and have his usual workload in Week 14 after suffering a minor knee injury last week.
Huddle Up: The Ravens will still use Bernard Pierce and/or Lorenzo Taliaferro to spell Forsett, but there's no question all the important touches will be going to Forsett as per usual.
Haloti Ngata - DEPosted 12/4/14 2:24pm ET
Baltimore Ravens DT Haloti Ngata was suspended four games Thursday, Dec. 4, for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. DT Timmy Jernigan is expected to take his place in the starting lineup.
Huddle Up: A definite blow for Ngata's IDP owners and the Ravens' D which has been one of the stoutest against the run all season.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 12/4/14 7:12pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (knee) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: That makes Friday a big day for fantasy's eighth-ranked RB. Stay tuned ...
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/3/14 4:05pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) is making progress with his knee injury, according to head coach John Harbaugh. The injury is not considered serious.
Huddle Up: At the moment, there's no reason to think Smith will miss any time, but see what the prognosis is later in the week after a team practice or three. Smith has caught 7 TD passes over the last 7 games.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/2/14 12:05am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) should be able to play in Week 14 even though he suffered a knee injury in Week 13, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said the injury is not serious and considers Smith day-to-day.
Huddle Up: Smith owners will need to monitor practice reports this week as their man has certainly been start worthy of late, catching 20 passes for 301 yards and four scores as Joe Flacco's No. 1 target over the the last four games.
Torrey Smith - WRPosted 12/1/14 9:10am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) limped off in the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers favoring his right knee. He is expected to undergo further testing Monday, Dec. 1, to determine the severity of his injury.
Huddle Up: Losing Smith would be a blow to the Ravens as they battle for a playoff spot in the uber-competitive AFC North... but let's get the results of those further tests before hitting the panic button.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 11/25/14 1:13am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett ran for 182 yards and two scores in a 34-27 victory over the New Orleans Saints Monday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Forsett easily hit a career high with his 182 yards and added 8 yards on two receptions for his best fantasy outing of the season -- one in which he'll likely go down as the waiver-wire find of the year.
Owen Daniels - TEPosted 11/20/14 6:44pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (non-injury) is taking the day off practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: No worries for the TE who will be good to go for the Ravens on Monday night coming off a bye week.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 11/7/14 4:30pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith Sr. (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as probable for Week 10.
Huddle Up: As usual, Triple-S will be out there Sunday, and his fantasy owners will be banking on a turnaround after he's compiled only 11 catches for 138 yards and no scores over the last 3 games.
Jimmy Smith - CBPosted 11/6/14 6:44pm ET
Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) underwent season-ending foot surgery Thursday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: Crushing news for Smith and his IDP owners as he had been one of the league's top corners through the first half of the season. The Ravens' secondary, meanwhile, allowed 6 TD passes last week in the first full game of Smith's absence and is still scrambling for answers.
Owen Daniels - TEPosted 10/31/14 3:35pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) returned to practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is considered a game-time decision for the team's Week 9 game.
Huddle Up: Daniels missed Week 8 after undergoing an arthroscopic knee procedure, and it wouldn't be shocking to see him sit again this week. The worst news for his fantasy owners is that the Ravens don't play until Sunday night, so the safe play is getting another TE in your lineup now.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 10/31/14 4:45pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Most all of the concern over Forsett missing Wednesday's practice has evaporated and definitely plan to deploy him as usual Sunday night in Pittsburgh.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 10/30/14 10:26am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) may never be able to play football again after two surgeries on a fractured and dislocated hip in as many seasons.
Huddle Up: Too soon to rule out Pitta for good, but this latest injury is definitely a career-threatener.
Owen Daniels - TEPosted 10/30/14 4:41pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.
Huddle Up: It's a downgrade for Daniels, who at least participated in individual drills Wednesday, and it's starting to look like the TE could miss a second straight game. Check back Friday, though, for a more definitive prognosis.
Owen Daniels - TEPosted 10/29/14 2:38pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Daniels sat out Week 9 after undergoing a knee "clean-up" procedure last week so monitor his progress throughout the week.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 10/29/14 4:21pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (leg/ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Not a huge concern given this is only the first practice of the week, but it's definitely something to monitor over the coming days.
Bernard Pierce - RBPosted 10/27/14 9:21am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce was a healthy inactive in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach John Harbaugh explained Sunday, Oct. 27, that he felt others gave the team a better chance to win. 'We're just doing what we try to do as far as our personnel and getting guys up that we felt gave us the best chance to win the game,' Harbaugh said. 'We were jammed up. We did what we thought we had to do, and it worked out because our other backs stayed healthy.'
Huddle Up: Kudos to Harbaugh for finally figuring out--or at least finally admitting--what most of the rest of the football world already knew: Pierce is ordinary, and a thunder/lightning tandem of Justin Forsett and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro is Baltimore's best bet. Going forward look for Forsett to be the lead dog in this committee and handle most of the passing game work while Taliaferro gets the bulk of the carries at the goal line.
Owen Daniels - TEPosted 10/24/14 2:48pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) underwent a cleanup procedure on his knee and will not play in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach John Harbaugh said he doesn't expect Daniels to miss much time.
Huddle Up: It's a bit of a scramble for Daniels' owners trying to replace fantasy's 11th-ranked TE on short notice. Third-round pick Crockett Gillmore is in line to start for Baltimore, and he has only 3 receptions for 29 yards so far.
Owen Daniels - TEPosted 10/23/14 2:57pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: That's 2 missed practices in 2 days for the veteran TE, but see what happens Friday before making any concrete lineup decisions.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/23/14 6:50pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: Just a day off for the Ravens' leading pass-catcher, who had a season-low 3 receptions in the Week 7 rout of the Falcons.
Owen Daniels - TEPosted 10/20/14 10:44am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels was targeted by QB Joe Flacco nine times Sunday, Oct. 19, and caught six balls for 58 yards and a touchdown in Week 7. Daniels is second on the team with 27 catches, 275 yards and three touchdowns. 'He makes catches in traffic,' Flacco said. 'He obviously has held onto the ball a lot of times while getting hit by two guys, even one in the end zone. So, yes, I have a lot of confidence throwing to him.'
Huddle Up: No surprise that Daniels is standing out in a Gary Kubiak offense he's intimately familiar with. His role seems secure as one of the Ravens' top three pass catchers, and he'll see enough looks to be a fantasy factor the rest of the way.
