Kamar Aiken - WRPosted 11/17/15 12:13am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken was targeted 14 times by QB Joe Flacco on their Week 10 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Aiken's 14 targets and seven receptions (for 73 yards) were both career highs, and 23 of his 58 targets this season have come in the two games Aiken has played without fellow WR Steve Smith Sr., who, of course, is out for the season. Expect him to finish as Joe Flacco's No. 1 target this season.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 11/17/15 3:54pm ET
Baltimore Ravens rookie WR Breshad Perriman (knee) has been placed on the season-ending Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: The lost rookie season for the Ravens' No. 1 pick is now officially over as he was never able to overcome his knee injury on the opening day of training camp. He'll be a name now to file away -- especially in dynasty and keeper leagues -- for next season.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 11/11/15 8:59am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was advised by doctors that it's not safe to return to game action. His season, and possibly career, are likely over.
Huddle Up: Bad news for Pitta, who showed flashes of being a productive fantasy tight end. But with the Ravens drafting Maxx Williams in the second round you had the feeling this is where things were headed.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 11/11/15 1:51pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will be placed on Injured Reserve, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Pitta has attempted yet another comeback, but his surgically-repaired hip just isn't going to cooperate, and sadly this looks like this was the last hope for the tight end's career.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 11/2/15 2:15pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') has scheduled surgery on Nov. 9 with the intentions of returning to play next season, according to sources. Smith tore his Achilles' tendon in the Week 8 game against the San Diego Chargers. The Ravens would welcome him back if he chooses to return in 2016.
Huddle Up: Smith announced his retirement at the start of the season but reports said he had been reconsidering lately. Smith probably doesn't want to end his career injured on the field. It's a good bet he returns in 2016.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 10/22/15 10:09am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said he would strongly consider retiring if he can't make it back to play this season. 'I would like to think that if I can't make it back this year, what's going to change next year?' Pitta said after Wednesday's practice. 'For me, in my mind, I'm working to get back this year. If I can't, that might be it.'
Huddle Up: We knew all along Pitta's hip issue was a big problem and could be career-ending. Some positive reports about his potential return got hopes up, but it looks now like he's running out of time. The Ravens' drafting of Maxx Williams suggested they knew it was time to start looking for a new tight end as well.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/22/15 4:16pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith said his plans to retire after the season remain unchanged. 'I'm taking it one game at a time - not really focusing on that other stuff,' Smith said. 'I'm on schedule for what I discussed earlier in the year, and I'm enjoying it with the wins and losses.'
Huddle Up: With first-round pick Breshad Perriman a no-show so far with his knee injury, the 36-year-old Smith has been the Ravens' pass-catching workhorse, drawing at least seven targets in each of the five games he's played, including three contests with at least 10 targets. Expect that to continue as long as Smith holds up.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/18/15 9:58pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) had seven catches on 10 targets for 137 yards and a touchdown in a 25-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Smith didn't show any signs of the fractures in his lower back. He continues to be one of the top receivers in fantasy football this year when healthy. Considering the Ravens have little else at receiver, don't expect that to change.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/16/15 2:28pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) said he doesn't have high hopes of playing against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6. His said his back hasn't felt as good as he hoped in practice this week.
Huddle Up: Smith owners need to get their Plan Bs in their lineups as it's looking and sounding very much like the veteran wideout will miss a second straight start. That likely means more looks again for WR Kamar Aiken, who was targeted nine times last week and finished with four receptions for 78 yards against the Browns.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 10/16/15 2:28pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) will be a game-time decision in Week 6 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: It was a good sign to see Forsett return to the practice field Friday after sitting out the previous two days, but the bad news for Forsett owners is that the Ravens have a late-afternoon start this week. Hopefully, you have rookie Javorius Allen ready to plug in.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/16/15 8:34pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is listed as questionable for the Week 6 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Smith isn't expected to play on Sunday. Kamar Aiken will be the Ravens' top receiver with Smith out for the second straight game. Aiken is a WR3/4 this week.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 10/16/15 8:34pm ET
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is listed as questionable for the Week 6 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Forsett is going to be a game-time decision this week. If he can't go, rookie Buck Allen will start against the 49ers and be on the RB2 radar.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 10/15/15 7:50pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (calf) practiced again Thursday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Gillmore, who had 10 receptions for 151 yards and two TDs in the first three games, looks to be on track to play Sunday after sitting out two straight contests, and the Ravens could use the help with rookies Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle, combing for only nine catches for 56 yards during his absence.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/14/15 4:25pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) returned to practice Wednesday, Oct. 14. He moved cautiously in drills but showed a burst as well.
Huddle Up: If there's any chance the ultra-tough Smith can play this week after sitting out last Sunday, count on it happening.
Lorenzo Taliaferro - RBPosted 10/14/15 6:43pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 14. Free-agent RB Raheem Mostert (Dolphins) was subsequently claimed.
Huddle Up: The season is over for Taliaferro, bringing clarity to the Justin Forsett handcuff situation as rookie Javorious Allen assumes the No. 2 role.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/14/15 10:46pm ET
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Smith is still dealing with four small fractures in his back. He's questionable for Sunday's game with the 49ers. Fantasy owners shouldn't rely on Smith to be active this week.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/13/15 5:26pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) could return in Week 6 against the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach John Harbaugh said he's hopeful that Smith plays this week.
Huddle Up: Smith sat out Week 5 after suffering a back fracture the previous week, and we'll see what he's able to do in practice this week. If Smith returns, of course, Kamar Aiken's value will drop after served as the team's No. 1 WR last Sunday with 78 yards on four catches.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 10/13/15 5:26pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (calf) moved around well in pre-game workouts in Week 5, and he could return for Week 6 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Gillmore, who had 10 catches for 152 yards and two TDs over the first 2 1/2 games, has missed the last two contests and we'll have to monitor his participation levels in practice this week.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 10/12/15 10:08pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett avoided a high-ankle sprain in a Week 5 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Head coach John Harbaugh said Forsett could still play this week.
Huddle Up: Forsett was injured in the fourth quarter Sunday but not before he posted his second straight 100-yard rushing game. Forsett owners will have to monitor his practice status throughout the week, and hopefully they have either Lorenzo Taliaferro or Javorius Allen as a fall-back option just in case.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 10/11/15 11:48pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) said he suffered an ankle injury late in the fourth quarter against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5 and did no return. 'I felt like if I went back out there I possibly could have damaged it more,' Forsett said.
Huddle Up: We'll know more about Forsett's injury in the next couple of days when the Ravens practice. If he's unable to play against the 49ers, rookie Buck Allen will likely get the start.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 10/9/15 3:47pm ET
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (calf) has been ruled out for the Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Gillmore will miss a second straight game, meaning more work for rookies Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle, who had four targets apiece but only netted 29 combined yards on five catches in Week 3.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/8/15 4:16pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith Sr. (back) did not practice again Thursday, Oct. 8, and he will not play in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: As expected, the veteran Smith will miss his first game as a member of the Ravens, leaving Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown and newcomer Chris Givens to fill in as the team's top WRs.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 10/7/15 5:10pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (calf) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Not a good sign that Crockett still wasn't able to practice with two weeks off, but see if he's able to get on the field over the next two days.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/7/15 5:10pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) is week-to-week with microfractures in his back, but he hasn't been ruled out for Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns yet, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh also said Smith won't need surgery and that his injury is a matter of pain tolerance. Smith won't be back on the field until he proves he can 'really function, protect himself, play hard and fast.'
Huddle Up: The ultra-tough Triple-S has had extra days to recover with the Ravens playing on Thursday last week, but we are still talking about broken bones here so expect him to miss at least one game.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/6/15 10:02am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) is day to day and hasn't been ruled out for Week 5, according to WR Kamar Aiken.
Huddle Up: Broken bones in his back? Ice up, son! You can't really surprised Smith might still go this week. Whether he can be effective, however, remains to be seen.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/4/15 12:10am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (back) is dealing with four microfractures in his back and won't play against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5, head coach John Harbaugh said Saturday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: As expected, Smith is out for Week 5 and he could be out even longer. The Ravens are in rough shape at receiver. Kamar Aiken is now Baltimore's top receiver. The team also traded with the Rams for Chris Givens on Saturday. Aiken is worth picking up as a WR3/4.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/3/15 12:31pm ET
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ribs) is dealing with four broken ribs, but it is not considered a long-term injury, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The original report has Smith as "week-to-week." There's a chance he could play in Week 5 against the Browns. Smith is a tough guy but the likely scenario is probably him missing at least one game. Kamar Aiken would become the Ravens' No. 1 receiver if Smith can't play. That's not great for the Ravens but it would put Aiken on the WR3/4 radar. Baltimore also acquired Chris Givens from the Rams on Saturday.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 10/2/15 12:26am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett ran for a game-high 150 yards on 27 carries Thursday, Oct. 1 in a 23-20 overtime win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Not only was it a game and season-high rushing performance, but it easily eclipsed his total (39-124) ground output from the first three games combined and hopefully the majority of his fantasy owners had still stuck with him to reap the benefits after enduring the slow start.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 10/2/15 2:12pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith Sr. (back) had just four catches for 24 yards in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday, Oct. 1, before a back injury forced him out for the rest of the game. Smith declined to talk about his availability for Week 5.
Huddle Up: The good news is that Smith will have an extra three days to recover before the Week 5 matchup against the Browns so start checking on his status in the middle of next week.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 10/1/15 4:56pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) reportedly has had arthroscopic surgery on his knee after he re-injured his posterior cruciate ligament Sunday, Sept. 27, in pre-game warmups. He's out indefinitely.
Huddle Up: Yikes -- this is quickly looking like a lost rookie season for the 26th overall pick, not to mention a huge blow for Ravens who were counting on the rookie to complement veteran Steve Smith Sr. who ranks fifth in the league with 25 receptions. No other Baltimore wideout has more than six catches, and don't be surprised if the Ravens look to add a WR to try and ease burden on the 36-year-old Smith and give QB Joe Flacco another target.
