Joe Flacco - QBPosted 5/24/16 10:45am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) will miss all of the organized team activities this offseason because he is still recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Flacco said he has made big improvements in his recovery, and head coach John Harbaugh said Flacco should be ready for training camp. QB Ryan Mallett will work with the first-team offense during the workouts.
Huddle Up: There are no major changes within the Baltimore offense so it's not critical for Flacco to be on the field. Fantasy owners banking on any member of the Ravens' offense, however, will certainly want to see him getting full reps in training camp to ensure Baltimore's attack won't be dragged down by lesser quarterback play like it was after Flacco was injured late last season.
Lorenzo Taliaferro - RBPosted 5/19/16 3:52pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro may be on the roster bubble in training camp. His physical running style is something the team needs, but his health has been unreliable thus far.
Huddle Up: Could it come down to Taliaferro versus Trent Richardson? Curious minds will be keeping tack.
Marlon Brown - WRPosted 5/13/16 3:22pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Marlon Brown (failed physical), DB Jermaine Whitehead, S Nick X. Perry and DE Nordly Capi were released Friday, May 13.
Huddle Up: Brown had a splashy debut in 2013, catching 49 passes for 524 yards and seven TDs as an undrafted rookie but has posted a 38-367-0 stat line since and now is looking to get healthy and find a new team.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 5/6/16 3:48pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon signed his rookie deal Friday, May 6.
Huddle Up: The fourth-round pick will be more of a third-down option more than anything, but that has some upside in a Marc Trestman offense.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 4/18/16 1:35pm ET
Free-agent RB Trent Richardson (Raiders) signed an undisclosed deal with the Baltimore Ravens Monday, April 18.
Huddle Up: The former first-round pick has been a massive disappointment since joining the league, and he may be on his last chance in the NFL. In theory he'll be an ideal complement to Justin Forsett... if he's finally able to live up to his potential.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 4/15/16 12:25pm ET
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta's restructured deal has injury waivers for 2016, 2017 and 2018, with base salaries of $1 million, $5.5 million and $5.5 million. His salary cap numbers are $3.2 million, $7.7 million and $7.7 million.
Huddle Up: Again, best of luck to Pitta in his attempt to resurrect his career, which has seen him play only seven games in the last three seasons combined.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 4/14/16 11:21pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) told his former college coach, Sean Beckton, that he is "100 percent" recovered from knee surgery.
Huddle Up: We should know by the time the Ravens' first OTA practice ends this spring how the 2015 first-rounder truly is progressing after his rookie season was a frustrating wash.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 4/12/16 4:35pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will attempt to play in 2016, according to a source. Pitta is expected to participate in the team's offseason workouts and the spring practices, with the hope being he will be ready for full contact this summer and into the fall when the season begins. Pitta also restructured his contract Tuesday, April 12. Terms weren't disclosed, but he will have the chance to earn some of his $5 million base salary in incentives.
Huddle Up: It would be quite the comeback for Pitta, who only has played in three games since the start of the 2014 season. It would also make for a crowded TE depth chart in Charm City with Maxx Williams, Crockett Gillmore and newly signed Benjamin Watson already in place.
Chris Matthews - WRPosted 4/7/16 5:39pm ET
Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent WR Chris Matthews signed his exclusive-rights tender Thursday, April 7.
Huddle Up: The Super Bowl XLIX standout is sticking with the Ravens and will be fighting for a reserve role after catching nine passes for 97 yards and a TD in four games with the team a season ago.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 4/5/16 3:47pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is running, according to head coach John Harbaugh, but he didn't know at what intensity level.
Huddle Up: It continues to be a slow and largely unquantifiable progression for the 2015 first-round pick who missed all of his rookie season. Fantasy GMs are going to need some sure signs of advancement before they invest in him this summer.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 4/5/16 10:12pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett, who is already lifting weights again, plans to get X-rays next week to determine how far along he is in his recovery from a broken arm. 'I'm excited to get back this season,' Forsett said. 'Big expectations for myself and I'm just ready to get back at it and be 100 percent.'
Huddle Up: This will be a crossroads year for Forsett, who just turned 30 and is injury-shortened season removed from his career year (1,529 total yards, 8 TDs) in 2014. Bouncing back from the broken arm, however, shouldn't be an issue.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 4/4/16 1:48pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) said he's getting better and better each week as he recovers in his rehabilitation form a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Flacco said he believes he's on track for training camp, but he hasn't been given a timetable for a return.
Huddle Up: Expect the Ravens to bring Flacco along slowly, but all signs point towards him starting the season at the helm for Baltimore. If not, you can go ahead and downgrade the fantasy prospects of any and all members of the Ravens offense.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 4/3/16 1:52pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is continuing to make good progress in his recovery from a broken arm last season and has already begun lifting weights.
Huddle Up: The now 30-year-old Forsett should be just fine, health-wise, and is still atop the Baltimore RB depth chart, but don't be surprised if the team adds another back late in free agency or in the draft to help carry the load.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 4/3/16 2:06pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace is expected to have a big role in his team's offense in 2016, according to QB Joe Flacco, who added he was excited about the team's offseason additions.
Huddle Up: Wallace's targets and receptions have declined in each of the last two seasons in Miami and Minnesota, respectively, but his deep speed has its best fit in years with Flacco's big arm. Nonetheless, expect fantasy WR4 numbers at the best.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 3/22/16 6:06pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is expected to return for organized team activities this offseason. Head coach John Harbaugh said he doesn't know what percentage his injured knee is at, but he said everyone seems to be happy with Perriman's progress. 'He looks strong. I've seen him in there a few times in rehab,' Harbaugh said. 'Everybody tells me that he's right where he should be.'
Huddle Up: Another year, another watch in effect for the 2015 first-round pick whose entire rookie season wound up getting scuttled by a training-camp knee issue.
Chris Givens - WRPosted 3/17/16 10:39am ET
Free-agent WR Chris Givens (Ravens) agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Givens reunites with former Rams teammate Sam Bradford and gives the Eagles a deep threat--a piece not frequently used in a West Coast offense like Philly will run.
Marlon Brown - WRPosted 3/17/16 4:20pm ET
Free-agent WR Marlon Brown (Ravens) re-signed with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, March 17, on an undisclosed deal. He wasn't tendered as a restricted free agent last week.
Huddle Up: Brown is headed for his fourth season in Baltimore, but the fantasy fanfare remains lacking as he's coming off a career-low 14 catches for 112 yards a season ago and now the Ravens have added even more WR depth with the signing of Mike Wallace.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 3/2/16 11:37am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco agreed to a three-year extension Wednesday, March 2, through the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: Without knowing the details of the deal you would think the Ravens are now able to spread Flacco's payments over a longer period of time. Either way, Flacco is locked in as Baltimore's quarterback for the foreseeable future.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 3/1/16 5:28pm ET
Steve Smith called his torn Achilles the toughest injury of his 15-year NFL career and acknowledged that he remains in the early stages of his recovery, but the Baltimore Ravens WR seemed confident that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Smith will be 37 by the time the season rolls around, but even with the likelihood that he'll something less than the dangerous wideout he was in seasons past, he'll bea valuable veteran presence for the Ravens' young pass-catching crew, most notably second-year wideout Breshad Perriman, who missed his rookie season due to injury.
Justin Tucker - PKPosted 2/26/16 12:41pm ET
Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker had the franchise tag placed on him Friday, Feb. 26.
Huddle Up: Tucker is still ranked as one of the league's and fantasy's elite kickers, but it is a tad worrisome that his field-goal accuracy and point totals have gone done each of the last three seasons.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 2/25/16 7:25pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (forearm) will remain with the Ravens in 2016, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh also said the best running back will get the brunt of the carries.
Huddle Up: Forsett was on pace for a 1,270-total-yard season before breaking his arm in Week 11, but with the RB set to turn 31 this coming October and Javorious Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Terrance West the other backs of note on the Baltimore roster, don't be shocked to see the team another RB to the competitive mix this offseason.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 2/23/16 9:23am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco's agent will meet with the Ravens this weekend at the NFL combine to discuss a possible restructured deal. If Flacco's contract is restructured it would give Baltimore some breathing room on figuring out how to manage nearly $85 million in cap space from now until 2018.
Huddle Up: Flacco signed a big deal after leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl; now Baltimore is searching for a way to make the deal more cap-friendly while still keeping stability at the quarterback position.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 2/21/16 2:04pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco could restructure his contract before the start of free agency, according to ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley. Flacco has already said he would be willing to do so to give the Ravens more salary cap space. Hensley said the key for restructuring will be to give Flacco more money over the next three years than what he would earn in his current deal.
Huddle Up: Flacco is coming off an injury-shortened 10-game season but is scheduled to count a whopping $28.6 million against the cap this coming season, thanks to his remarkable 2012 postseason run. A creative restructure certainly could help benefit both sides.
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.
