Justin Forsett - RBPosted 1/29/16 9:34am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (forearm) said he should be 100% in 'a couple of weeks.'
Huddle Up: Forsett should be back at work in plenty of time to start offseason workouts with the Ravens, but it remains to be seen if he'll simply return to his feature-back job or if he'll have to share more with Javorius Allen.
Kamar Aiken - WRPosted 1/26/16 7:25pm ET
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Kamar Aiken is expected to be re-signed this offseason, according to Clifton Brown of CSNMidAtlantic.com.
Huddle Up: Aiken stepped up when Steve Smith Sr. went down and led the team with 75 receptions for 944 yards and five TDs. If he is indeed re-signed, he'll combine with Smith and second-year wideout Breshad Perriman to give the Ravens a decent WR trio.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 1/21/16 2:07pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is six weeks removed from surgery to fix two torn knee ligaments, and he said his rehab is 'going really well.' He's confident that he'll be fully recovered by the start of the regular season in September. 'I'm coming along great,' Flacco said. 'I don't think there is any way I'm not going out there ready to go right away. Don't quote me. But that's just me. I have no timetable. I'm really taking it day by day and getting better and better each week.'
Huddle Up: Flacco just turned 31 after failing to play full season for the first time in eight years with the Ravens and should be good to go come next August/September.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 1/21/16 8:26pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken, Breshad Perriman and others may have more company next season. General manager Ozzie Newsome said the Ravens have to add depth at wide receiver this offseason, whether it be through the NFL Draft or through free agency.
Huddle Up: Aiken had a solid season-ending stretch after Smith was lost for the season in Week 8 while Perriman will be starting from square one after missing the entire 2015 with a knee injury.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 1/7/16 9:47am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said there still is no timetable on whether he will be able to play football again. The Ravens may consider releasing Pitta at some point this pffseason since he has a $6.6 million salary cap figure for 2016.
Huddle Up: At this juncture it's tough to see Pitta making it back to the NFL, and even tougher seeing him return to a role with any fantasy value.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 1/7/16 4:19pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is expected to be fully recovered and ready to begin the next season on time, doctors told him.
Huddle Up: Like fellow first-round WR Kevin White, Perriman's 2015 rookie season was a total wash, and we'll have to monitor his progress all offseason.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 12/30/15 4:25pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith announced on his Twitter account Wednesday, Dec. 30, that he will officially return to the Ravens in 2016. Smith previously had announced before the season that he would retire.
Huddle Up: As great, tough and seemingly ageless as he has been, Smith will turn 37 in May and will be coming off a torn Achilles. If any player, though, can defeat that combo, it's Triple-S.
Javorius Allen - RBPosted 12/22/15 12:25am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen was benched during the team's Week 15 game after he fumbled the ball in the first quarter of the game. It was his second fumble in his last seven touches. Head coach John Harbaugh said Allen's benching likely will not carry over to the Week 16 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Definitely something to factor in with the rookie Allen, but he'll get another opportunity as fellow RB Terrance West hasn't exactly lit it up with 62 yards on 14 touches the last two weeks.
Matt Schaub - QBPosted 12/18/15 6:35pm ET
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he isn't naming a starting quarterback for Week 15 against the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Dec. 18, even though QB Matt Schaub (chest) is listed as probable. QB Jimmy Clausen is another option to start against the Chiefs. Clausen took at least half of practice repetitions both Wednesday, Dec. 16, and Thursday, Dec. 17, according to offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. Harbaugh said Schaub has a chance to be 100 percent healthy by Sunday, Dec. 20. It's highly unlikely that QB Ryan Mallett will see playing time Sunday after being signed this week.
Huddle Up: Bank on Schaub starting after he was able to practice if full both Thursday and Friday but check in before kickoff to make sure.
Matt Schaub - QBPosted 12/17/15 10:43pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (chest) put in a full practice Thursday, Dec. 17, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: There's one more practice day remaining this week, but it's looking like Schaub will return and play Sunday after sitting out last week's beatdown by the Seahawks. A definite upgrade over Jimmy Clausen, who threw for 274 yards and interception while failing to get Baltimore into the end zone in Week 14.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 12/16/15 4:31pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (back) is out for Week 15, and he's likely done for the season, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Gillmore's season started strong, but injuries have taken their toll down the stretch -- as they have for the team as a whole -- and the end of the season can't come soon enough in Baltimore.
Matt Schaub - QBPosted 12/12/15 3:55pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (chest) is not expected to play in the Week 14 game against the Seattle Seahawks because of his chest injury. QB Jimmy Clausen likely will start if Schaub is ruled out.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks' defense was an elite fantasy play before Schaub was injured but now they could decide matchups in the first round of fantasy playoffs. Buck Allen is really the only Ravens offensive player worth starting this week and even he's a risky play.
Matt Schaub - QBPosted 12/11/15 6:27pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (chest) did not practice Friday, Dec. 11, but is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Seattle Seahawks. If Schaub doesn't play, QB Jimmy Clausen would be the starter.
Huddle Up: We'll have to wait until game day to be sure, but a full week of missed practices for Schaub would certainly seem to add up to the first Baltimore start for Clausen. If so, it would be Clausen's second start of the season against Seattle, and the first resulted in Clausen's Bears getting blanked 26-0 in Week 3. If Seahawks' D wasn't hot enough, the heat has now been turned up a notch or three.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 12/10/15 12:21am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: Crockett's status for this week's game is up in the air. If he can't play against the Seahawks. Maxx Williams will get the start in a good matchup versus Seattle. However, Williams isn't a recommended fantasy play.
Matt Schaub - QBPosted 12/10/15 11:47pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (shoulder, knee) and TE Crockett Gillmore (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: The Ravens likely will need to see some strides from Schaub on Friday, or backup Jimmy Clausen might be in line to get his second start against the Seahawks this season, playing for different teams.
Matt Schaub - QBPosted 12/9/15 4:22pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (shoulder, knee) is out of practice with shoulder and knee injuries Wednesday, Dec. 9. QB Jimmy Clausen is taking the first-team repetitions.
Huddle Up: The veteran Schaub is said to be experiencing soreness and was kept out of the team's first workout of the week, but the general feeling is he'll be able to return to practice and play against the visiting Seahawks on Sunday.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 12/8/15 10:27pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is out of surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn medial collateral ligament Tuesday, Dec. 8. He will rehabilitate in Florida with Dr. James Andrews for a week or so.
Huddle Up: Flacco was injured in Week 11 and now will have the offseason to rehab and recover. The Ravens are hopeful he'll be ready by the start of training camp.
Javorius Allen - RBPosted 12/7/15 9:04am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen carries 17 times for 63 yards in the Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins, and he added team-highs with 12 receptions, 107 yards and a touchdown with 13 targets in the win. His 12 catches were one shy of a club record.
Huddle Up: Allen has capitalized on a pair of favorable matchups to deliver fantasy helpers--primarily as a receiver in Marc Trestman's offense. You know, the offense that generated a gazillion targets for Matt Forte last year. Interesting to see what Baltimore's plan for 2016 is with Justin Forsett returning. Neither is the bell cow back you traditionally associate with the Ravens, but both have pass-catching acumen.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 12/7/15 11:19pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TEs Crockett Gillmore (back) and Maxx Williams (concussion) have a really good chance to play against the Seattle Seahawks this week, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Williams missed the Week 12 loss to the Dolphins while Gillmore departed the contest early and finished with only one catch for seven yards. Fantasy owners will need to monitor Baltimore practice reports throughout the week.
Matt Schaub - QBPosted 12/7/15 11:21pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (head) passed the concussion tests after the team's Week 13 game and passed them again Monday, Dec. 7, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Schaub has thrown for 540 yards and three TDs in his two starts but faces a sizable step up in competition this week in the visiting Seahawks.
Javorius Allen - RBPosted 12/1/15 10:07am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen carried 12 times for 55 yards in the Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns Monday, Nov. 30. He also had four receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Allen was solid in his first start in place of the injured Justin Forsett, and he scored his first NFL touchdown. Terrance West also saw some carries for the Ravens as Baltimore apparently didn't want to overwork Allen in his new role as the team's feature back.
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.
