Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 8/25/16 1:29pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) are not expected to play Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Detroit Lions. They did not practice Thursday, Aug. 25.
Huddle Up: Both players have been dealing with injuries this offseason, and Smith is especially no surprise to be sitting out preseason action. Perriman is more disappointing as we haven't seen much of him over his first two years. As it stands, Smith is in low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 territory, while Perriman is more of a deep flier in later rounds.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 8/24/16 10:23am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is still in line to be the starting running back, in the opinion of ESPN's Jamison Hensley, but RBs Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon project to share third- down work with RB Terrance West serving as a short-yardage back in the red zone.
Huddle Up: As an undersized journeyman, Forsett's reign atop the depth chart could be short lived, and the potential of a multi-faceted rushing attack isn't ideal for his fantasy stock. West presents nice value as a late-round flier in standard and touchdown-heavy settings, whereas Allen presents similar potential in PPR leagues. Dixon is likely the most talented back of the quartet, but expect him to have to bide his time for an opportunity in 2016. The rookie is nothing more than a stash option at this point.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 8/24/16 10:53am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman has shown better pass catching ability during training camp, according to offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. 'I think his hands and his concentration have even gotten better since he first got here,' Trestman said. 'He's much more sure-handed -- not that he wasn't -- but he's become even more sure-handed and I think that goes with confidence.'
Huddle Up: Perriman's hands have been questioned dating back to college, but he also missed his entire rookie season, which is likely a bigger hurdle. Also, with Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and Mike Wallace currently ahead of Perriman, the sophomore has a steep climb to being a reliable fantasy commodity. His size and speed remain intriguing, but he still hasn't shown anything on the field to elevate him above late-round flier territory.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 8/22/16 9:06am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Perriman has the speed to be a factor in fantasy, and he's a nice late-round target as a WR5. He'll have a couple of weeks to add to that in camp.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 8/22/16 5:10pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) has not been ruled out for the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 27. Head coach John Harbaugh said he wants Perriman to play if he is cleared to play.
Huddle Up: Perriman has not played since being drafted last season, but it appears he has a chance to play this preseason. He should have a decent role in the passing game if he is able to stay healthy and can be a late-round option in deeper leagues.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 8/21/16 9:08am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) has missed the first two preseason games but is expected to play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 27.
Huddle Up: Flacco appears to be on track for the start of the season and probably will see limited work against the Lions. Flacco will have some weapons to work with this season but probably is best as a No. 2 quarterback for fantasy owners.
Terrance West - RBPosted 8/20/16 7:17pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West (finger) left the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts in the first half due to a jammed finger, but he was able to return later.
Huddle Up: West scored a pair of touchdowns in the preseason opener, but wasn't as prolific against Indy. He outperformed Buck Allen again, and held serve against Kenneth Dixon, too. West is looking good for the No. 2 tailback job behind Justin Forsett, but nothing is settled yet. The former Towson standout is only worth a late-round pick in most standard fantasy leagues.
Kamar Aiken - WRPosted 8/18/16 9:49pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken had 25 catches for 333 yards in eight games with WR Steve Smith last year, and Aiken had 50 catches for 611 yards in the eight games Smith missed.
Huddle Up: Aiken is a popular fantasy sleeper, but if Smith and Breshad Perriman stay healthy, Aiken could struggle to make an impact. He is worth a late-round grab, but don't overpay.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 8/17/16 11:03am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace has caught fade routes in the end zone, tough catches on back-shoulder throws and has been a frequent target on underneath routes in camp. He has been a reliable target as far as hands go. "I think he is going to be a really big hit for us," QB Joe Flacco said. "We all know he can run. But just the way he runs his routes and how good is he at the top of it and coming back to you, and how sure his hands have been. I don't know if I've seen him drop a pass."
Huddle Up: Wallace has a golden opportunity to return to fantasy relevance. He's a WR4 with the opportunity for more with so many injuries and questions on the Ravens' roster.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 8/17/16 2:23pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Aug. 17, and likely will participate in practice Monday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Huge news for the tough-as-nails 37-year-old wideout, who is coming back from a double Achilles rupture. The Ravens' WR picture is starting to gain some clarity, and it will grow even clearer if Smith can come close to full participation this preseason.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 8/16/16 4:17pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said his surgically repaired knee isn't fully recovered yet, but he did say the knee feels great and he has not missed any practice. Flacco doesn't know if he'll be playing in the Ravens' second preseason game this weekend.
Huddle Up: The Ravens are understandably taking the pracautionary route with their starting QB after he missed the final six games of last season, but there's been no indication that the start of this regular season is in any kind of danger. He's a low-end QB2 at this point.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 8/16/16 7:27pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman still hasn't returned from a nagging knee injury, and head coach John Harbaugh still has no update on the second-year receiver. Harbaugh has previously said that Perriman should be ready for Week 1, but he still hasn't been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Another week of camp, same old story with the 2015 first-round pick who has yet to see a down of NFL action -- regular season, preseason or otherwise. He should be available after your league drafts, so if you feel taking the flyer of flyers, Perriman is your wideout.
Terrell Suggs - LBPosted 8/15/16 9:46am ET
Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list and is practicing Monday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Suggs shouldn't be relied on as anything more than a reserve IDP player in deep formats.
Terrance West - RBPosted 8/12/16 8:43am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West ran nine times for 25 yards and two touchdowns and added one catch for seven yards in a 22-19 win over the Carolina Panthers in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: West has been making some noise during training camp, and he is worth a gamble as a RB4 in case he can wrestle the starting role away from Justin Forsett.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 8/12/16 8:43am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon had nine carries for a team- high 44 yards in a 22-19 win over the Carolina Panthers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Dixon is part of deep group vying for touches behind Justin Forsett. Draft him as a RB5 and hope he can eventually emerge as the main backup.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 8/11/16 7:39pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) will not play against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 11. He could be in action for the Ravens' third preseason game.
Huddle Up: Flacco is still recovering from ACL surgery and the Ravens obviously aren't going to rush him back to play in a preseason game. Flacco is expected to be ready for Week 1 when the Ravens take on the Bills.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 8/9/16 3:30pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett looks like he did during his 2014 breakout campaign, according to Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. 'I see the same running back we had two years ago, in terms of his speed, his explosiveness, his vision,' Harbaugh said. 'He really looks good. I know there's a lot of talk about the other guys, but he's playing really well.'
Huddle Up: After 1,529 total yards and eight TDs in 2014, Forsett played in only 10 games and slipped to 794 and two this past season. He'll turn 31 in October so banking on a near-full revival is certainly a risky proposition.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 8/4/16 9:48am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: Dixon is expected to be the team's third running back, but Terrance West is making noise in the RB4 competition. West could pose a threat to Dixon's touches if he's as explosive as advertised. Both backs are RB5 considerations in fantasy.
Terrance West - RBPosted 8/4/16 1:07pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West has put himself in position to compete for the starting running back spot with an electric camp, in the opinion of beat writer Jamison Hensley.
Huddle Up: West would have to leapfrog Javorius Allen and Justin Forsett, and there's a lot of training camp to go. It seems a bit premature, but West could be entering the RB4 realm in fantasy.
Justin Tucker - PKPosted 8/4/16 3:01pm ET
Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker claims he could hit a field goal of more than 84 yards in the ideal conditions. 'We think about these things really specifically, if you send me out there you have a reason for it -- because they think I can make a kick,' Tucker said Thursday, Aug. 4, on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. 'To me it doesn't matter where I just have to hit a good ball. If conditions are prime -- like last season, we opened up in Denver, the weather was warm and the field was nice, you're up in altitude so the ball just carries and in pregame I hit the cross bar from 85. So if the situation is just prime, maybe 84 and a half yards.'
Huddle Up: Just wondering: Should that be worth eight points in leagues that reward bonus points for made kicks longer than 40 yards?
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 8/2/16 8:16am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) suffered a finger injury in a scuffle at training camp Monday, Aug. 1. He is expected to miss a few days.
Huddle Up: Pitta is making his way back from a major hip injury, so this minor ailment is nothing. If he makes it back to his pre-injury form, he is a viable option at his position -- but not without great risk. Avoid him in drafts.
Terrance West - RBPosted 8/2/16 12:04pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West has been the team's most explosive player thus far in camp, according to beat writer Jeff Zrebiec. West is finding holes and breaking long runs in camp.
Huddle Up: West is battling several backs for the final running back spot on the roster, and it's clear he has an early lead. However, he'll need to win a slot with more upside for usage than the team's RB4. He's in the RB5 conversation in fantasy, but he has work to do.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 8/2/16 3:39pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson was waived Tuesday, Aug. 2. Free-agent WR Chuck Jacobs was subsequently signed.
Huddle Up: Well, not surprisingly the 2012 third-overall pick's Baltimore career is over before it ever really began as he's been unable to take part in training-camp practices due to knee and hamstring issues. The Ravens' fantasy RB situatiion, however, doesn't get much clearer without T-Rich as Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen, Terrance West, Lorenzo Taliaferr and fourth-round pick Kenneth Dixon are battling for playing time and touches.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 8/1/16 1:47pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace has been working with the first-team offense in practice. Injuries to WRs Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) helped facilitate Wallace going with the starters.
Huddle Up: Wallace certainly is filling a need at an injury-ravaged position in Baltimore, and his deep speed just might prove to be a good match with Joe Flacco's big arm -- something he didn't have that luxury in his previous two stops in Miami and Minnesota. That said, include Wallace on your WR sleeper lists.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 7/29/16 12:31pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace passed his conditioning test Friday, July 29, and he is taking part in practice.
Huddle Up: Not exactly a shining start for Wallace's Ravens' career as it took the deep threat an extra day to pass the team's conditioning test. But his presence is badly needed for a Ravens' WR corps starting camp without the injured Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman.
Crockett Gillmore - TEPosted 7/29/16 12:37pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore left practice Friday, July 29, with a hamstring injury that will require an MRI.
Huddle Up: Not good for Gillmore who was limited to 10 games a year ago due mainly to a calf injury. On the flip side, health issues could also bring some clarity to the Ravens' TE position, which also includes Ben Watson, Maxx Williams and the attempting-a-comeback Dennis Pitta.
Steve Smith - WRPosted 7/29/16 12:57pm ET
Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith suffered a double rupture of his Achilles last season, which surgeon, Robert Anderson, said was the first one he had ever seen.
Huddle Up: If it's possible to enhance his toughness resume, coming back strong from this age 37 would do the trick. So please excuse the wideout if he needs extra time this season.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 7/28/16 2:24pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett expects to hang onto the starting job and do the bulk of the work at the running back position ahead of RBs Javorius Allen, Kenneth Dixon, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Terrance West. The team also has RB Trent Richardson (knee) competing for a roster spot. While Forsett might be optimistic, he is 31 and the team is leaning toward reducing his carries.
Huddle Up: There is still fantasy fanfare regarding Forsett only two years removed from his 1,266-yard, eight-TD season but he was limited to 641 and two in 10 games last season due to a broken arm. Those totals will increase with better health fortune, but look for Allen, Dixon, et al to get mixed in as well, keeping Forsett out of serious fantasy-starter consideration in most leagues.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 7/28/16 2:27pm ET
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 medial collateral ligament sprain, according to a source. The injury is considered minor, but the team likely will proceed with caution.
Huddle Up: Tough break to open camp for the fourth-round pick, and definitely expect the Ravens to take it easy with the rook after what happened to their top pick a year ago in WR Breshad Perriman, who still is waiting to make his NFL debut.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 7/27/16 5:32pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace failed his conditioning test Wednesday, July 27. He will be able to take the test again Thursday, July 28.
Huddle Up: Not the way Wallace wants to make a first impression. The 30 year old Wallace is on his fourth and possibly final team with a chance to redeem himself after a terrible season in MIN. He'll be tested tomorrow and should be in camp soon.
