Alex Collins - RBPosted 9/23/18 9:22pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins ran for 68 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries and added three catches for six yards in Week 3 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Collins had himself a reasonably productive fantasy day, but Baltimore's insistence on giving Javorius Allen meaningful work in the passing game and near the goal line is keeping him from enjoying RB1 production. Owners should stay the course with Collins, however, as he is clearly the lead back for a team that should be able to remain in positive game scripts more often than not. Keep him in lineups as an RB2 in Week 4 when Baltimore visits the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Javorius Allen - RBPosted 9/23/18 9:39pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen managed only seven yards on six carries and 19 yards on three catches, but he scored one rushing and one receiving touchdown in Week 3 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Allen has been about as pedestrian as a running back can be the season, averaging exactly two yards per carry and 5.4 yards per reception, yet Baltimore continues to use him in high-leverage fantasy situations like passing downs and near the goal line. He has scored at least once in every game and has four total, nearly half of his production over the first three years of the career combined. Once regression finds him, he will quickly go from being a flex play to mere bench depth in most leagues.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 9/23/18 10:00pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree finished with seven catches and 61 yards on 10 targets in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Crabtree has amassed 10 targets in back-to-back games, although his 117 yards on the 12 receptions he has made over that time isn't exactly the stuff of legend. Nevertheless, he appears to have earned complete trust in Joe Flacco in the short passing game, and his volume - assuming it continues - is going to keep firmly on the WR3 radar. Keep him in lineups - especially PPR - in Week 4 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
John Brown - WRPosted 9/23/18 9:53pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown turned nine targets into five receptions for 86 yards in Week 3 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Brown was advertised as the Ravens' top receiver during camp and has lived up to the hype through three weeks, scoring at least 13 points in PPR leagues in each game. Durability has been his biggest obstacle throughout his career, so this kind of production should be much more the rule than the exception going forward. Brown should be started as a solid WR3 option in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
C.J. Mosley - LBPosted 9/20/18 10:43am ET
LB C.J. Mosley (knee) participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 20, after sitting out the previous day.
Huddle Up: An encouraging sign for Mosley, who suffered a bone bruise a week ago Thursday night in the Week 2 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Now let's see if Mosley can continue the momentum in practice Friday.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 9/20/18 2:17pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins (illness) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Collins appears to be on track to play in Week 3 but has received less than 10 carries in each of the first two games. He should receive more work this week against the Denver Broncos but may only be a flex option in standard leagues.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 9/19/18 1:48pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins (illness) was unable to practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: Collins is a little green in the gills, so he was held out of practice. It's unlikely to be something which keeps him from playing in Week 3. So far Collins has not lived up to his sleeper fantasy status, turning in two stinkers to open the season. If he continues to make his fantasy owners sick with mediocre lines, Javorius Allen could continue to dig into his workload.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 9/14/18 6:39am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins played 42 snaps in Week 2 for 49 percent of the offense.
Huddle Up: Javorius Allen played an identical amount of snaps. Allen had six rushes for just eight yards, but he reached the end zone. He caught five balls for 36 yards. Collins rushed nine times for 35 yards and caught three balls for 55 yards. Collins was slightly more efficient, but it looks like a 50-50 split for now. Both are RB3 possibilities.
Javorius Allen - RBPosted 9/14/18 6:40am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen played 42 snaps for 49 percent of the offense in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Allen and Collins played the same amount of snaps, but Collins had three more rushes and was more efficient in yardage. However, Allen reached the end zone. The duo looks to be in a 50-50 split as RB3s.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 9/13/18 8:50pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw 376 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions on 32-for-55 passing Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Cincinnati Bengals. Flacco also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: The yardage and pair of scores were nice, but he lost a little luster in leagues that heavily deduct for turnovers. Flacco returns home for a Week 3 title with the Denver Broncos and should be closer to a reserve than a starter in fantasy leagues.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 9/13/18 9:06pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree caught five passes for 56 yards Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: The veteran possession receiver was good for 11 PPR points, which is acceptable if that is considered a down game. He's a borderline WR3/flex play most weeks and occasionally offers WR2 utility with the right matchup. Week 3 vs. the Denver Broncos probably won't be that matchup.
John Brown - WRPosted 9/13/18 9:02pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown caught four passes for a team-high 92 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Two TDs in two games as a Raven is a good start ... Brown gets a few extra days of rest and comes back for a Week 3 meeting with the visiting Denver Broncos. He's a risk-reward play with a touch matchup.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 9/13/18 8:57pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins rushed nine times for 35 yards and added three receptions for 55 yards Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Collins lost a short TD plunge to Buck Allen, and while Collins' 12 PPR points are acceptable, gamers were hoping for a larger workload. Baltimore faces the Denver Broncos in Week 3.
Javorius Allen - RBPosted 9/13/18 8:53pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen rushed six times for eight yards and a touchdown Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Cincinnati Bengals. He hauled in five passes for 36 yards.
Huddle Up: Allen has carved out a decent role for PPR gamers in the first two weeks. The loss of Kenneth Dixon makes Buck Allen a fine fantasy addition, if he is somehow still available in your league. Baltimore hosts the Denver Broncos in Week 3, making Allen a suspect play.
Mark Andrews - TEPosted 9/13/18 9:21pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews caught three passes for 17 yards an his first NFL touchdown Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Andrews caught three balls to TE Nick Boyle's two and Maxx Williams' trio. All told, none of the Baltimore tight ends are worth rostering in fantasy at this time. Week 3 brings a matchup with the Denver Broncos, which could pave the way for a DFS play, but guessing which tight end to utilize is a fool's errand.
Willie Snead - WRPosted 9/13/18 9:09pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Willie Snead caught five passes for 54 yards at the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, Sept. 13.
Huddle Up: Snead scored in the opener and was good enough for a WR3 or flex start in PPR formats this week. He will face the Denver Broncos in Week 3 and should be a fringe lineup decision with a tough opponent.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 9/12/18 8:38am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is expected to miss several weeks with a knee injury suffered in Week 1, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Alex Collins had a 7-13-1 line last week, but he vaults to RB2 status with Dixon out of the picture.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 9/12/18 8:40am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins has an opening to more snaps with RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) out several weeks.
Huddle Up: Collins had just seven rushes for 13 yards, but he took one to the house last week. He'll likely share touches with Javorius Allen, but Collins is in the RB2 area.
Willie Snead - WRPosted 9/9/18 5:32pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Willie Snead racked up four receptions for a game-high 49 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: The newcomer Snead made his presence felt with six targets, tying a team high in the rout. He and Joe Flacco had a nice rapport in this one, but the Ravens were also able to do pretty much whatever they wanted. The Week 2 divisional game on Thursday against the Bengals should be much more challenging. Treat Snead as a WR5 in most fantasy leagues despite his solid day.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 9/9/18 5:30pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins rushed seven times for just 13 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Collins had his workload curtailed, mostly due to the lopsided nature of the game. Kenneth Dixon and Javorius Allen saw a larger role than expected, but Collins is still believed to be the top tailback on the team. Treat him as a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Thursday's Week 2 game in Cincinnati.
Javorius Allen - RBPosted 9/9/18 5:27pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen ran four times for 17 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and he added five receptions for 15 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Allen was seeing an increased workload with the game out of hand. He had a total of nine touches, second-most for the Ravens backfield behind Kenneth Dixon. That was simply a result of the lopsided score, and the starting tailback remains Alex Collins.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 9/9/18 5:25pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon racked up 13 carries for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 win against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Dixon was seeing a little extra work with the game well out of hand, so don't look too much into the fact that he had 13 total touches to just eight for Alex Collins. Still, Dixon could be worth a roster spot down the line, especially if something happens to either Collins or Buck Allen.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 9/9/18 4:59pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco completed 25-of-34 passes for 236 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 1 rout of the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Flacco spread it around to his new receivers, hitting newcomers John Brown, Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead with touchdown strikes. It's unlikely they'll post 47 points on a weekly basis, but the Baltimore offense looks to have a lot more weapons and therefore Flacco has a little more fantasy appeal than recent seasons. It's a quick turnaround for the Ravens, as they hit the road for Cincinnati on Thursday to kick off Week 2.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 9/9/18 5:41pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree hauled in three receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills on six targets.
Huddle Up: Crabtree had to share the wealth with fellow newcomers John Brown and Willie Snead, as those receivers also scored. Despite the even numbers across the board, Crabtree is still the preferred fantasy option among the Baltimore receiving corps. The Ravens travel to meet the Bengals in Week 2 on Thursday.
John Brown - WRPosted 9/9/18 5:36pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown posted three receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Brown made his presence felt with four targets, highlighted by a seven-yard touchdown grab to close out the scoring in the first quarter. He looks like a solid WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.
Nick Boyle - TEPosted 9/9/18 11:23pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Nick Boyle tied for the team lead with six targets, finishing with three catches for 40 yards, in a Week 1 versus the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Boyle is most likely just keep in the seat warm for rookie Hayden Hurst, who is expected to miss most of September. It bears mentioning, however, that Joe Flacco loves to throw to his tight ends, so Boyle could serve as a temporary last-ditch option for owners of Delanie Walker should they strike out with other options on the waiver wire this week. For what it's worth, the Cincinnati Bengals provide a solid matchup for him in Week 2.
Hayden Hurst - TEPosted 9/7/18 9:14am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) did not practice Friday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: The rookie first-round pick had surgery to repair a foot stress fracture midway through the preseason and is not ready to return to the field. Veterans Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams are expected to be the Ravens' top two tight ends to open the season but both are well off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of leagues.
Terrell Suggs - LBPosted 9/7/18 9:23am ET
Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs (undisclosed) is not practicing Friday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: The 35-year-old Suggs doesn't have any known injuries, and speculation is that it's simply a veteran's rest day, as he was afforded last season. Expect the Ravens' veteran defensive leader to be out there at full strength Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 9/1/18 6:37pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will likely be used as a 'secret weapon' in the red zone and other packages, according to John Eisenberg of BaltimoreRavens.com.
Huddle Up: Even if he is used in the red zone, Jackson still only needs to be owned in dynasty leagues for now.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 8/25/18 7:10pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed seven of his 10 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for 39 yards and a touchdown in a 27-10 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins Saturday, Aug. 25.
Huddle Up: Jackson might not overtake Joe Flacco this year, but he has the highest ceiling of any of the rookie quarterbacks because of his rushing ability, and he is a must-own player in keeper formats.
