Mike Wallace - WRPosted 6/28/16 1:24am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace said he isn't as fast as he was as the slot receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers four years ago, but he thinks he can still get it done. 'I think I've gotten better, even though (the) numbers don't say so,' Wallace said. 'I think I'll get better this year, and I'll show some people I have a lot up my sleeve.'
Huddle Up: Wallace will have a strong-armed quarterback better suited to capitalize on his strengths. And even if he isn't quite as fast as he used to be, he has enough speed to carve out a Torrey Smith-like role in the Baltimore offense.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 6/20/16 5:23pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has looked good, is moving well and is still capable of being a significant contributor, in the opinion of The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.
Huddle Up: Pitta has been sidelined for a while so anything the Ravens get from him will be gravy. He'll also have to nudge aside Maxx Williams and Ben Watson for targets in Baltimore.
Terrance West - RBPosted 6/20/16 5:23pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West is leaner and more explosive after he worked himself into the best shape of his career. He made some cuts over the past couple of weeks that he probably couldn't last year. If he continues to improve, it'll be hard to cut him.
Huddle Up: Even if West is better he's still facing an uphill battle with Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon firmly ahead of him on the depth chart and Lorenzo Taliaferro and Trent Richardson right alongside him. Okay, so maybe not Richardson, but that's still a lot of players to overtake to reach a meaningful level of fantasy touches.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 6/17/16 2:16pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) doesn't have any tentativeness while running and cutting during practices. However, getting hit in the pocket will be an adjustment, since that's how he suffered the injury. Flacco said he feels good enough to play now if he had to.
Huddle Up: Flacco's six missed games last season were the first of his eight-year career, and he heads into summer ranked as The Huddle's 21st-ranked fantasy QB.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 6/17/16 2:18pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson will likely need arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason for a pre-existing issue. He will miss some time, but the extent of that missed time was not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Officially consider T-Rich's comeback attempt in more danger than it already was.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 6/15/16 9:42am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace impressed team officials with his effort level during organized team activities (OTAs), and he is expected to see plenty of chances this summer with WR Steve Smith (Achilles') still rehabbing his injury and WR Breshad Perriman (knee) nursing an injury.
Huddle Up: Wallace has struggled mightily to be fantasy relevant since leaving Pittsburgh a few years back, but in Baltimore he'll have a strong-armed quarterback not afraid to throw the deep ball so Torrey Smith-type numbers aren't out of the question.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 6/15/16 9:42am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro might be competing with RB Terrance West and RB Trent Richardson for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart behind RBs Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon.
Huddle Up: The Ravens do seem to have their running back depth chart set, so barring injury the three bigger backs will likely be battling for one roster spot--and one that doesn't appear to offer much in the way of fantasy upside.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 6/15/16 9:42am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is expected to be absent for the team's three-day mandatory minicamp as he continues to rehab his knee injury.
Huddle Up: The Ravens will start worrying about Flacco if he isn't taking significant reps in training camp. For now, no worries and plenty of reps for the backups.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 6/15/16 9:42am ET
As expected, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is not expected to participate in the team's three-day minicamp as he continues to rehab his Achilles' injury. He might be available for training camp and the preseason.
Huddle Up: With Joe Flacco also sitting out OTAs there's no rush to get the veteran Smith back on the field. He can start reclaiming some of his fantasy value by demonstrating he's healthy when training camp rolls aorund.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 6/14/16 12:45pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) received a stem-cell injection Tuesday, June 14, and doesn't have a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He's expected to be fine for the season, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Is this actually positive health news for a change for the troubled 2015 first-round pick? Could be, but let's wait and see where things are come training camp and the preseason before we make any definitive proclamations.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 6/12/16 1:34pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) suffered a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He'll be evaluated by Dr. James Andrews Monday, June 13, to determine if season-ending surgery is required.
Huddle Up: Some players are simply cursed by the injury gods, and if the prognosis is indeed bad Monday, it could mean a second straight lost season for the 2015 first-round pick who has yet to play an NFL snap.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 6/12/16 9:55pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles) has not be able to participate in organized team activities this offseason and is not sure when he will be able to return. Smith said he will need to do something during training camp in order to be ready for the regular season.
Huddle Up: Coming back from a Achilles rupture would be too much for most 37-year-old WRs, but we know Smith isn't most WRs. Look to see him in the preseason if not training camp.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 6/7/16 4:00pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is making good progress in his recovery and should be able to participate during training camp as long as he does not suffer any setbacks, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: So far, so good this offseason for Flacco, who missed the last six games of 2015 and is currently the Huddle's 21st-ranked QB.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 6/5/16 1:56pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (shoulders) ran routes and did individual work during the first week of organized team activities. He didn't do full-team drills. He also dropped 15 pounds in the offseason and is in camp at 260 pounds.
Huddle Up: The 2014 third-round pick led Baltimore TEs with 33 catches for 412 yards and four TDs but the signing of free-agent Benjamin Watson and the continued development of 2015 second-round pick Maxx Williams could conceivably relegate Gillmore to the third spot on the TE depth chart.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 5/26/16 3:01pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson is dealing with a hamstring injury Thursday, May 26, that he suffered last week.
Huddle Up: Not surprising, but definitely something that doesn't belong on the itinerary of player with a whole bunch to prove and coming off a season out of the league.
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.
