• Owen Daniels - TE
    Posted 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.

    Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Daniels' fantasy owners are hoping for a rebound game following his 2-34 showing last week in Tampa, but it's a tough matchup this week as the Falcons -- believe it or not -- allow the fewest fantasy points to opposing TEs.

  • Justin Forsett - RB
    Posted 10/16/14 2:16pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett has thrust himself into the lead running back role for the team. He is fourth in the NFL with 408 rushing yards and leads the league with 6.4 yards per carry. The team, however, still wants to use RB Bernard Pierce as an important part of their running game.

    Huddle Up: Forsett is definitely the Ravens' back you want to own, with Pierce a distant second. Forsett (14) and Pierce (15) combined for 29 carries and a TD in last week's blowout of the Bucs, while rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro ran only twice.

  • Owen Daniels - TE
    Posted 10/9/14 5:56pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (non-injury) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 9, because he is receiving the day off.

    Huddle Up: No worries for the Ravens' starter who has caught 9 of his 13 targets for 113 yards over his last 2 games.

  • Torrey Smith - WR
    Posted 10/7/14 11:28am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith has just 11 catches for 176 yards and a touchdown in the first five games this season. Smith is in the final year of his rookie deal, and a new deal is not imminent, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Couldn't be that the Ravens are suppressing Smith's numbers to keep his price down, could it? Torrey has definitely taken a back seat to Steve Smith in the Baltimore offense--that five-game stat line could have been a big week for Smith in a previous version of this offense--and there's little indication things will turn around any time soon. On the bright side, Smith could be a buy-low candidate in dynasty leagues given that he won't have any desire to return to this iteration of the Baltimore offense once his contract expires.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 10/3/14 4:21pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 3, and is probable for Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Unlike Week 4, Pierce should be active AND play this week, making the Ravens' RB situation a three-dimensional fantasy quagmire Sunday with Justin Forsett and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro also involved.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 9/29/14 10:17am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) was active in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers, but he said Sunday, Sept. 28, that he did not play as a 'precaution.'

    Huddle Up: Justin Forsett had a solid game and Lorenzo Taliaferro was serviceable in Pierce's absence. We'll see what the Ravens opt to do going forward, but Pierce was nothing special prior to his injury so there's no guarantee he returns to the starting gig.

  • Justin Forsett - RB
    Posted 9/29/14 10:17am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RBs Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro nearly split the carries in half in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers with RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) held out as a precaution. Forsett carried 14 times for 66 yards and a touchdown, while the rookie Taliaferro had 15 carries for 58 yards and a score. Forsett also added three grabs for 31 yards.

    Huddle Up: With Pierce closer to health, the Baltimore backfield will be a muddled situation. Forsett should hang on to his pass-catching and change-of-pace duties; the real battle will be between Pierce and Taliaferro for primary and goal line carries.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 9/26/14 3:45pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Pierce will return after a 1-week absence, but a potential 3-RB quagmire awaits fantasy owners in Baltimore with Justin Forsett, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Pierce all vying for carries in the Baltimore backfield.

  • Owen Daniels - TE
    Posted 9/25/14 10:31am ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels is expected to carry the majority of the workload at the position. The team still plans to utilize the position as much as before, and TE Phillip Supernaw said Daniels is moving as well as he has seen him move.

    Huddle Up: Daniels is intimately familiar with the role, having played for Gary Kubiak in this offense in Houston. So long as he's able to stay healthy Daniels will be a fantasy contributor--not to the extent Dennis Pitta was, but certainly worthy of weekly fantasy consideration.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 9/24/14 4:32pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (quadriceps) is participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24. Pierce missed the team's Week 3 game because of the injury.

    Huddle Up: This makes Pierce almost certain to return to action Sunday, but be prepared for a fantasy-unfriendly three-headed RBBC monster following rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro's breakout performance last week.

  • Dennis Pitta - TE
    Posted 9/23/14 7:14pm ET

    The Baltimore Ravens placed TE Dennis Pitta (hip) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Sept. 23, officially ending the tight end's season.

    Huddle Up: Rugged turn of events for Pitta, who went down on a non-contact play Sunday. Look for Owen Daniels, who was with offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak in Houston, to assume most of the TE workload. Daniels had a big Week 2 with a pair of TD grabs but has only 5 receptions for 42 yards in the Ravens' other 2 contests.

  • Dennis Pitta - TE
    Posted 9/22/14 1:11am ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) suffered a dislocated hip in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He will have tests Monday, Sept. 22, to check for a possible fracture.

    Huddle Up: Owen Daniels will be the Ravens starting tight end if Pitta misses time. Daniels is nothing more than a TE2 but he has more value in TD heavy leagues.

  • Dennis Pitta - TE
    Posted 9/22/14 7:03pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) also has a fracture in his right hip, according to a source. Pitta will likely undergo surgery for the dislocated and fractured hip.

    Huddle Up: Pitta will miss the rest of the 2014 season. Owen Daniels is now the Ravens starting tight end. He's nothing more than a middling TE2, although his value increases in TD heavy leagues.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 9/19/14 9:22pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh) practiced in full despite being listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. Pierce should play in the game.

    Huddle Up: Pierce is expected to play but might not be 100 percent. He's nothing more than a flex play this week if he's in the lineup, especially with Justin Forsett around to steal touches if Pierce isn't at full health.

  • Joe Flacco - QB
    Posted 9/18/14 6:47pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (illness) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Flacco, who sat out Wednesday, looks good to go Sunday in Cleveland.

  • Joe Flacco - QB
    Posted 9/17/14 3:45pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Flacco appeared to come out of last Thursday's win in good shape and practiced Tuesday, but he created a mini buzz as a Wednesday no-show for undisclosed reasons. A source, however, has told the Baltimore Sun it's "nothing serious." If Flacco is back in full Thursday, consider it a non-issue.

  • Joe Flacco - QB
    Posted 9/17/14 3:56pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday Sept. 17, as he is dealing with a cold.

    Huddle Up: Yeah, definitely nothing serious as reported earlier.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 9/12/14 12:10am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce had 22 carries for 96 yards in the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Pierce, benched for the second half in Week 1 after a second-quarter fumble, started Thursday night and finished with a game-high 23 touches for 103 total yards. That had to be a little disappointing for those who used a high waiver claim on Justin Forsett, who finished with 12 touches and 72 yards. This likely could be the Ravens' rotation going forward, though, with Pierce starting and Forsett spelling him as a change-of-pace back.

  • Steve Smith - WR
    Posted 9/12/14 10:22am ET

    Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith was targeted 10 times in Week 2 and hauled in six catches for 71 yards. WR Torrey Smith had just three targets and caught one pass for 10 yards in the game.

    Huddle Up: Through the first two games at least the Baltimore offense is running through Steve Smith and the tight end position. Feels like a good fantasy buy-low opportunity on Torrey Smith, but there's a definite risk that, as opposed to playing the Andre Johnson role in Gary Kubiak's Baltimore version of his Houston offense, this is how the Ravens passing game will break down the rest of the way.

  • Ray Rice - RB
    Posted 9/9/14 10:38am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, free-agent RB Ray Rice's (Ravens) description of what happened in the domestic dispute to the Baltimore Ravens is consistent with the elevator video, according to sources. However, seeing the video stunned the team owner and prompted Rice's release.

    Huddle Up: There's no question the video is shocking, and it's not surprising that seeing it prompted the owner to call for Rice's release. It hasn't helped that the league has mishandled the situation from the beginning.

  • Justin Forsett - RB
    Posted 9/9/14 3:56pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RBs Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett will 'both play a lot' in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday, Sept. 11, and RB Lorenzo Taliaferro 'will be a big part of it, too,' according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said Pierce is fine health-wise, but he was benched in Week 1 after fumbling. Forsett has the trust of offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak after the two worked together with the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Forsett had 16 of the team's 22 RB touches in Week 1, but don't count out Pierce just yet. His fumble was the first of his career and he's never missed a game in two-plus NFL seasons.

  • Ray Rice - RB
    Posted 9/8/14 3:24pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice has been released.

    Huddle Up: Rice was released after a video surfaced of him knocking out his girlfriend this summer. The Ravens will move forward with Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett as their top two backs. Pierce was benched last week after fumbling early. Forsett finished with 84 total yards and a score against the Bengals. Early reports suggest Forsett could get the start Thursday night against Pittsburgh but it's likely to be a committee approach going forward.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 9/3/14 3:27pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce has passed all aspects of the NFL concussion testing protocol and has practiced all week.

    Huddle Up: Looks and sounds like Pierce is in line to start and get the most of the work Sunday against Cincy so plug him in as a RB2 or 3 if you need him.

  • Owen Daniels - TE
    Posted 9/2/14 3:43pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels admitted that he was dealing with a hamstring issue during the last couple weeks of training camp.

    Huddle Up: If Daniels is gimpy, that only makes Dennis Pitta a stronger TE1 option this Sunday against the Bengals.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 8/25/14 10:14pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce is dealing with a mild concussion, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Pierce was hurt in the first quarter of the team's preseason game against the Washington Redskins and did not practice Monday, Aug. 25. Pierce said via his Twitter account that he is feeling fine.

    Huddle Up: Time is at least on Pierce's side as has an extra week to get ready for the games that matter, and the Ravens will need him given Ray Rice's season-opening 2-game suspension.

  • Bernard Pierce - RB
    Posted 8/23/14 8:50pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (head) left the third preseason game early and is going through the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Pierce will now have two weeks to get cleared for the opener against Pittsburgh. If Pierce can't go against the Steelers, Justin Forsett and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro would split the touches with Ray Rice suspended.

  • Owen Daniels - TE
    Posted 8/21/14 3:41pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (leg) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 21, and is not expected to play in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.

    Huddle Up: Dennis Pitta's value inches up with each day Daniels misses.

  • Lardarius Webb - CB
    Posted 8/21/14 3:54pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens CBs Jimmy Smith (chest), Lardarius Webb (back) and CB Asa Jackson (ankle) will not play in the third preseason game. All three players are expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

    Huddle Up: These are essentially the Ravens' top 3 CBs, so monitor the situation as we get closer to the Week 1 matchup with A.J. Green and the Bengals.

  • Lardarius Webb - CB
    Posted 8/18/14 11:16pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (back) will not play in the team's final two preseason games, according to head coach John Harbaugh on Monday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: The Ravens certainly want to avoid a repeat of 2012 when their top CB missed all but 6 games and will try to get him rested and ready for the Sept. 7 season opener against Cincy.
