Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 7/19/17 6:56am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman has had the most impressive offseason at the position, according to beat writer Jamison Hensley. Perriman caught just 33 of the 66 targets to him last season, which was the lowest success rate among receivers on the team.
Huddle Up: Perriman experienced growing pains, but he missed his entire rookie season and has been playing catch up. He has a ton of speed, but he'll need to show more to be more than a dependable WR4 rotation player in fantasy.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 7/19/17 9:05pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead has impressed his new teammates thus far -- specifically QB Joe Flacco -- not just with what he can do after making a reception, but also before making the catch. 'Really, ever since we lost Ray Rice, we haven't had a type of back that's quite like how Ray was and quite like how Danny is in the passing game,' Flacco said. 'They just have a very good feel for when they're open and how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes, and you can already see that. You can see he has a really good feel for those kinds of things. If you remember back, obviously, Ray was really good at doing that, and that gives a lot to your offense for sure.'
Huddle Up: One way to make an immediate impact on a new team is to be on the same page with your quarterback, and that clearly appears to be the case here as it pertains to Woodhead. While he won't dominate the touches out of the backfield, the eight-year veteran still figures to play a crucial role in Baltimore, and could end up providing notable valuable in PPR fantasy leagues as a result. He deserves consideration in deeper standard formats, too.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 7/7/17 6:58pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West is projected to be the starter in Week 1, according to Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com, with RB Danny Woodhead seeing some carries but being used mainly in the passing game.
Huddle Up: With a four-game suspension looming for Kenneth Dixon, West could have some flex value early in the year. Long term, Woodhead is probably the safest Baltimore back to own because of his role in the passing attack.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 7/7/17 7:37pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon could have a bigger role in the offense this year, according to Ryan Mink of BalitmoreRavens.com.
Huddle Up: Dixon closed last year on a high note, but a four-game suspension and the signing of Danny Woodhead quickly derailed the hype train. He could still end up leading the backfield when all is said in done, and Dixon could be a sneaky pick in the later rounds.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 7/6/17 8:12pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin has averaged 67 catches, 913 receiving yards and six touchdowns over his seven NFL seasons, and since 2010, only one Baltimore receiver has reached all those marks in a single season.
Huddle Up: Maclin is expected to work out of the slot, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him become Joe Flacco's favorite target. He is worth a look as a WR3.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 6/21/17 6:23am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) said that he played through a torn groin muscle last season.
Huddle Up: Maclin slumped to a 44-536-2 clip last season, and he did miss four games due to injury. He's 29 now and could still have some productivity left as a WR3 in fantasy.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 6/19/17 6:48am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead was a popular target in the passing game during minicamp last week.
Huddle Up: Woodhead has durability concerns and isn't that great of a runner, but he has two 76-plus-catch seasons on his resume. He'll be a back-end option in PPR leagues.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 6/15/17 10:58am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin is expected to assume the slot receiver position with WRs Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman lining up on the outside.
Huddle Up: Maclin fills one of the voids left behind by Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and Dennis Pitta, among others. He will be able to make an immediate impact as the Ravens' starting slot receiver and could turn into Joe Flacco's safety blanket. That being said, drafting Maclin as a WR3 or higher would be a reach.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 6/14/17 3:42pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman had the wind knocked out of him after he laid out for a deep pass during practice Wednesday, June 14, according to WR Mike Wallace. Perriman sat out the rest of practice after the incident.
Huddle Up: Perriman should be fine moving forward and likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Ravens in 2017. He posted 499 yards and three touchdowns in his first full season in the NFL last season and should improve on those numbers if he is healthy. Owners in most leagues should consider him a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 fantasy receiver.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 6/13/17 6:44am ET
Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) signed a two-year, $11 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens that includes $6 million in the first year.
Huddle Up: Maclin could emerge as the team's best receiver relatively quickly, but he shouldn't be used as more than a WR3 in fantasy.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 6/13/17 1:14pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is exuding confidence this offseason, so much so that QB Joe Flacco claimed you can see Perriman's confidence in his eyes.
Huddle Up: The Jeremy Maclin signing hurts Perriman's fantasy stock, but he could be undervalued heading into his third year. The upside is evident with Perriman, and this might be the year he puts it all together. Drafting him as a WR4 or lower is ideal.
Ben Watson - TEPosted 6/13/17 6:21pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson agreed to restructure his contract last week, which dropped his base salary from $3 million to $1.25 million, according a source. Watson can make up to $3 million this season if he meets certain incentives.
Huddle Up: Watson is expected to compete for the starting tight end job during training camp if he is recovered from the torn Achilles' tendon he suffered in 2016. He has played well in the past but would only be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in most leagues.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 6/7/17 10:20am ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was waived/injured Wednesday, June 7.
Huddle Up: It's been a rough career of injuries for Pitta, and it's likely a career that is now over. Benjamin Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams will assume tight end duties with Pitta gone. Watson will start, but he's a No. 2 fantasy tight end.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 6/2/17 12:28pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) reinjured his hip during OTAs on Friday, June 2, and is undergoing tests to determine the severity of the injury, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome. 'This is incredibly disappointing, obviously for Dennis, and for the Ravens,' Newsome said in a statement.
Huddle Up: It was reportedly a non-contact injury and Pitta could not put any weight on his leg when trying to get up. This is at least his third hip injury and the tone of Newsome's statement suggests they are not optimistic about it. No. 2 tight end Benjamin Watson is recovering from a torn Achilles', while Maxx Williams underwent offseason knee surgery. As a result, Gary Barnidge may be getting a call very soon.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 6/2/17 1:15pm ET
Updating a previous report, the Baltimore Ravens fear that TE Dennis Pitta (hip) fractured and dislocated his hip for the third time in the last four years. His career likely will be over if the diagnosis is confirmed.
Huddle Up: Pitta has had problems with his hips for years and probably will not be able to come back from this latest injury. Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams likely are the two top candidates to start at tight end for the Ravens and could both be No. 2 fantasy tight ends.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 6/2/17 3:43pm ET
Updating an ongoing story, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has been diagnosed with a dislocated hip and is expected to undergo surgery at some point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Pitta likely will miss at least the 2017 season and may have to retire because of the injury. Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams probably will compete for the starting tight end job during training camp and the winner could be a No. 2 tight end in some leagues.
Michael Campanaro - WRPosted 6/1/17 12:20pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (toe) suffered a sprained toe at organized team activities this week and did not practice Thursday, June 1. Head coach John Harbaugh said the injury is more of a nuisance.
Huddle Up: Campanaro has a good chance to break out this year, but injuries have always been a hindrance for him. Don't view Campanaro as more than a late-round flier.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 6/1/17 7:25pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman made multiple long catches in 11-on-11 drills in practice Thursday, June 1.
Huddle Up: The start of Perriman's career has been derailed by injuries, but he will be no worse than the No. 2 receiver in Baltimore this year. A breakout campaign is a real possibility, and he is worth the gamble as a WR3.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 6/1/17 7:44pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead was a frequent target of QB Joe Flacco during practice Thursday, June 1, and Woodhead was used in a variety of ways throughout the session.
Huddle Up: Woodhead is as dangerous as any back in the passing game, and he has been effective in the red zone throughout his career. He is a RB3 candidate in standard leagues and a potential RB2 in PPR formats.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 5/25/17 1:13pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is making his mark at organized team activities. TE Dennis Pitta said no one on the Ravens is making more plays at OTAs than Perriman.
Huddle Up: Perriman looks a lot like a guy who will break out in 2017. Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken are gone and Perriman is now the No. 2 receiver behind Mike Wallace. Perriman may frustrate at times, but in standard leagues he deserves a look as a WR3.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 5/19/17 7:15pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman said he is 'expecting a huge year' for himself, and head coach John Harbaugh said Perriman 'has to be out there making a difference.'
Huddle Up: Injuries derailed the start of his career, but with Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken no lonhger around, Perriman should be line for a career year if he can stay healthy. He is a high-risk, high-reward WR3 candidate.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 5/18/17 2:16pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is developing a rapport with QB Joe Flacco. Perriman feels like he has a rhythm with Flacco now after working out with his quarterback for several weeks this offseason. 'We've been working every day running routes,' Perriman said. 'I feel like it's been paying off and we're getting on the same page.'
Huddle Up: Perriman's game seems to be coming together in his third year in the NFL. Last year was his first year actually playing, and he did alright. The stars are aligned for him to have a breakout season, including Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken being gone. He has WR3 upside in standard leagues.
Terrance West - RBPosted 5/8/17 3:12pm ET
Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent RB Terrance West signed his tender offer Monday, May 8. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: West appears to be the leading candidate for the starting running back job in 2017 but probably will not be a three-down back with the addition of Danny Woodhead. West probably should be seen as a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
Terrance West - RBPosted 5/4/17 8:05am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West is in a favorable position after the team didn't draft a running back in the 2017 NFL draft or free agency.
Huddle Up: West posted a 193-774-5 line rushing and a 34-236-1 line through the air, many of which were career highs. With Kenneth Dixon suspended four games, West is set to see the lion's share. He's a solid RB2 in fantasy.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 4/19/17 11:53am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he will continue to wear a knee brace in order to protect his surgically repaired knee.
Huddle Up: Flacco threw for a career-best 4,317 yards in 2016 with 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He will not have Steve Smith next season but should have a decent receiving corps and several options at tight end. Owners in all leagues should consider Flacco as a low-end No. 2 quarterback.
Terrance West - RBPosted 3/28/17 8:46am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West is the lead running back, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: West averaged 4.1 yards per carry in 160 rushes as the starter. He rushed for 655 yards, five touchdowns, caught 30 balls for 207 yards and another score as a starter. Things could change in the draft, but for now, West is a low-end RB2 in fantasy.
Dennis Pitta - TEPosted 3/22/17 6:50am ET
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta took a $2.5 million pay cut over the next two seasons. He will make $2.5 million in base salary in 2017 along with a $500,000 roster bonus. He was previously scheduled to earn $5.5 million. This gives Baltimore an additional $2.5 million in cap space in 2017 and 2018.
Huddle Up: Pitta led all tight ends with 86 catches last year. Coming off of two serious hip injuries with his career in limbo, it was an outstanding feat. His 729 yards not withstanding, his 8.5 yards per catch and two touchdowns left a lot to be desired. He's a low-end TE1 in standard formats, but he'll receive a slight boost in PPR leagues entering his age-32 season.
Kamar Aiken - WRPosted 3/21/17 5:56am ET
Free-agent WR Kamar Aiken (Ravens) is expected to sign with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Two years ago, Aiken had a 75-944-5 campaign that expressed optimism for 2016. He fell flat last season, but he's still just 28 in May. There are enough weapons around him that he could develop a nice role worth a WR5 flyer in fantasy.
Kamar Aiken - WRPosted 3/21/17 6:39am ET
Free-agent WR Kamar Aiken (Ravens) agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts, according to his agent, David Canter.
Huddle Up: Aiken had a 75-944-5 campaign in 2015, but he fell flat last season. He's still just 28 in May. There are enough weapons around him that he could develop a nice role worth a WR5 flyer in fantasy.
Kenneth Dixon - RBPosted 3/9/17 1:28pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon has been suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the league policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Huddle Up: Although the Ravens certainly didn't agree to terms with Danny Woodhead solely to cover themselves for such an occurrence, it now makes a bit more sense why Baltimore sought him in free agency. Dixon's stock obviously takes a hit, probably to the point where he will be a late-round pick at best in redraft leagues this summer.
