John Brown - WRPosted 8/11/18 9:11am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown made three impressive catches during practice Saturday, Aug. 11, and continues to be the best receiver during training camp, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley. Brown and QB Joe Flacco have shown great chemistry throughout camp.
Huddle Up: Brown appears to be on track to be one of the starting receivers for the Ravens as long as he can stay healthy. He has been productive in the past and is an attractive fantasy option because of his big-play ability. He has a chance to be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in leagues.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 8/9/18 8:37pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed seven of his 18 passes for 119 yards and rushed five times for 21 yards and a touchdown in a 33-7 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: His rushing ability gives him QB1 upside whenever he does have the chance to start, but Jackson will ultimately have to prove he can deliver from the pocket if he is going to be successful. In the meantime, he is a must-own option in keeper formats.
Hayden Hurst - TEPosted 8/8/18 12:21pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst has proven to be a playmaker this offseason and has improved his route-running, according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
Huddle Up: Hurst figures to start immediately, although fellow rookie Mark Andrews will also contribute. Hurst is merely a backup fantasy tight end at this point.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 8/2/18 8:33pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed four of his 10 pass attempts for 33 yards, a touchdown and an interception and ran eight times for 25 yards in a 17-16 preseason win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: Jackson made some plays with his legs but was inconsistent as a passer. He isn't a lock to contribute in redraft leagues this year, but he has QB1 upside because of his rushing ability and is a must-own option in keeper formats.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 7/31/18 9:26am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree has been 'a popular target' for Joe Flacco in red zone drill this summer, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.
Huddle Up: This should not come as a surprise, as Crabtree was also a favorite of Derek Carr near the goal line for the Oakland Raiders. Baltimore also doesn't possess much size at receiver outside of Crabtree, as John Brown and Willie Snead are both six feet tall and weigh less than 200 pounds. Crabtree should be a fine WR3 with WR2 upside in fantasy this season.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 7/22/18 1:21pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has shown 'accelerated improvement' and is 'way ahead of the curve now,' according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
Huddle Up: ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports Jackson has already moved ahead of Robert Griffin III on the depth chart. Joe Flacco isn't in any immediate danger of losing his starting job, but Jackson's name will come up throughout the season anytime he has a bad game or two. The rookie is a great best-ball lottery ticket and has QB1 upside if he manages to become the starter at some point in 2018.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 7/22/18 1:44pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is 'moving and grooving better than he has in several years,' according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
Huddle Up: Flacco was limited throughout training camp and the early part of last season with a back injury, but ESPN's Jamison Hensley noted he looked nimble on a run-pass option and sprinted 20 yards during Sunday's practice. Flacco is locked in as Baltimore starter to be on the season, but the presence of Lamar Jackson will keep pressure on him throughout the season. He's an uninspiring QB2 in most leagues.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 7/21/18 6:50pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman said he has some nervousness as he enters a 'make-or-break year,' but he is trying to avoid putting extra pressure on himself.
Huddle Up: Injuries have completely derailed his career, and he might not even make the 53-man roster. Even if he does make the team, he's no more than lottery ticket in dynasty leagues.
Hayden Hurst - TEPosted 7/21/18 7:46pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst said he knows there is pressure on him to produce immediately, but he has 'a lot of confidence' in his football ability.
Huddle Up: Rookie tight ends don't typically provide a lot of fantasy value, but Hurst could have a big enough role to be a TE2 in deeper leagues. He's also one of the best prospects at the position in rookie drafts.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 7/20/18 6:36pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson was on the field at the same time as QB Joe Flacco for a few plays during training camp Thursday, July 19.
Huddle Up: Flacco is still expected to open the year as the starter, but Jackson may have some packages or at least some gadget plays. He probably needs an injury to Flacco to be a useful fantasy asset this year, but he's a must-own option in keeper formats because of his dual-threat potential.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 7/19/18 5:58am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman will likely have his $649,485 roster bonus picked up by the deadline Saturday, July 21. He'll have to battle for a spot on the 53-man roster.
Huddle Up: Perriman still has tools that made him a first-round pick in 2015, but he has missed so much time that he is really behind the 8-ball. He's probably not worth drafting unless one of the top three receivers go down.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 7/18/18 12:34pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco 'got a lot of good work in' with his wide receivers last week, according to WR Willie Snead.
Huddle Up: Flacco hasn't usually been one to go the extra mile during the offseason, so it's reassuring to see him make the effort to build better chemistry with his receivers. There is an underrated crop of pass-catchers in Baltimore, but Flacco has proven time and again that he is not a reliable starting fantasy quarterback and he could eventually be overtaken by talented rookie Lamar Jackson.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 7/6/18 8:17pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree's 579 career receptions are more than the rest of Baltimore's receivers combined, and Crabtree's eight touchdown receptions last year were just three fewer than all of Baltimore's receivers combined.
Huddle Up: Crabtree should immediately become Joe Flacco's most dependable target, especially in the red zone. He's a WR3 candidate in 2018.
Hayden Hurst - TEPosted 6/19/18 1:14pm ET
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst singed his four-year rookie deal Tuesday, June 19. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Hurst should immediately be given a sizable role in Baltimore's offense as he aims to be the Ravens next Todd Heap. That being said, rookie tight ends are notorious for disappointing in their inaugural seasons. Draft Hurst as a backup in redraft leagues.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 6/17/18 8:20pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he plans to have throwing sessions with his receivers over the summer. 'So we'll be getting together, and it'll be good for us,' Flacco said.
Huddle Up: Flacco is trying to develop chemistry with some new additions to the receiving corps, and the presence of Lamar Jackson probably adds a little motivation. Even with some extra work over the offseason, Flacco is a midrange QB2, at best.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 6/16/18 6:25pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson took all the reps during team drills Thursday, June 14, and had his best day throwing the football, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Jackson will probably need an injury to Joe Flacco to make a significant impact in redraft leagues this year, but his Michael Vick-like skills make him a must-own option in keeper formats.
John Brown - WRPosted 6/14/18 8:45am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown (knee) returned to practice Thursday, June 14.
Huddle Up: Brown could have some luster in the slot as a WR5 in fantasy.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 6/13/18 10:50am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco appears to be more motivated this offseason as a result of the Ravens drafting QB Lamar Jackson and signing QB Robert Griffin III, according to FS Eric Weddle.
Huddle Up: Flacco needed some motivation following a lackluster 2017 campaign. The starting job is his to lose as he enters his 10th season, but both Jackson and Griffin give Baltimore options and more creativity with play calling. As it stands, Flacco is cemented in backup fantasy quarterback territory.
Terrance West - RBPosted 6/13/18 1:05pm ET
Free-agent RB Terrance West (Ravens) is signing an undisclosed deal with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, June 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This is a good situation for West to be signed in to, at least for the first four games of the season. Mark Ingram will be suspended during that time and West may carve out a nice role if he stays in shape and learns enough of the offense. Even so, he's merely a late-round flier.
John Brown - WRPosted 6/13/18 3:35pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, June 13, because of a knee injury he suffered Tuesday, June 12.
Huddle Up: Brown probably will sit out the rest of the minicamp to make sure he will be ready for training camp. Brown should be a top three receiver for the Ravens this season if he is healthy and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 5/25/18 10:38am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree was called 'the guy' by QB Joe Flacco when the latter was asked about chemistry with his new receivers following an OTA session on Thursday, May 24.
Huddle Up: The Ravens did well to add a plethora of veteran receivers such as John Brown and Willie Snead, but Crabtree is the only receiver on the roster who has experienced any prolonged NFL success. Owners should expect well over 100 targets for Crabtree, who should be able to contend for WR2 status in fantasy if he can stay healthy this season.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 5/24/18 11:46am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco was relatively mum regarding his opinion of the Ravens selecting QB Lamar Jackson with their first pick. 'When you draft anyone in the first round, there is always a plan,' Flacco said. 'What that plan is? I don't know. I'm worried about right now.'
Huddle Up: Flacco has to be a little miffed that his career-long franchise used their first-round pick on a fellow quarterback. Flacco's job is in trouble, but he was never a reliable fantasy asset anyway. He can be avoided in traditional leagues.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 5/17/18 6:59pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens' decision not to select a running back in the 2018 NFL Draft is a sign that they are comfortable with RB Alex Collins as their starter, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Collins proved to be a workhorse between the tackles once he was given a chance, and he should remain the lead back on early downs and near the goal line this year. He won't do a lot in the passing game, but draft him as a RB2 in standard formats.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 5/5/18 11:08am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has been impressive with his accuracy and smarts during the rookie minicamp, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Jackson likely will spend his rookie season as the No. 2 quarterback for the Ravens but could start as soon as 2019. He will be a popular pick in keeper leagues but will not have a lot of value in standard leagues.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 5/5/18 8:11pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson's role in the offense is a work in progress, according to head coach John Harbaugh, but Harbaugh said the staff is working on finding the best ways to put Jackson in position to make plays.
Huddle Up: Jackson may have a small package of plays he runs this season, but he's not taking Joe Flacco's job this year. Still, his long- term potential as a dual-threat quarterback make him worth rostering in keeper leagues and dynasty formats.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 4/29/18 2:18pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will face 'no urgency' in regards of being rushed into the starting lineup, according to NFL.com's Jim Trotter.
Huddle Up: According to Trotter, the plan with Jackson is to start at ground zero and throw everything at him to see what he does well and what they need to focus on. It makes sense, as Joe Flacco is a serviceable quarterback. Whenever Jackson becomes the starter - most likely 2019 - he should be considered a potential QB1 in fantasy given his incredible ability as a runner. As for 2018, he may possess more fantasy upside than any other backup quarterback.
Jaleel Scott - WRPosted 4/29/18 2:34pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jaleel Scott is expected to compete for the No. 4 receiver job and could also be a red zone target because of his size.
Huddle Up: Scott would have value in fantasy leagues if he becomes a productive red zone target, so he could be a waiver wire option during the season.
Jaleel Scott - WRPosted 4/28/18 10:36am ET
The Baltimore Ravens selected New Mexico State WR Jaleel Scott with the 132nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Scott is one of the taller receivers in the drafts, so he could be a red zone target. He probably will not be an option in standard leagues but could be a late-round pick in keeper leagues.
Mark Andrews - TEPosted 4/27/18 7:18pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens selected Oklahoma TE Mark Andrews with the 86th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Andrews will give the Ravens some beef at the tight end position, as he can be a mismatch for smaller linebackers trying to cover him. He is a tight end in the mold of Dennis Pitta, and if he can block it will be an added bonus.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 4/27/18 8:53pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will not unseat QB Joe Flacco as the team's starter in 2018, according to head coach John Harbaugh. 'Joe Flacco is our quarterback, and that's the thing that you've got to remember. Lamar's gonna have a great chance to develop. I think you get to this stage in a quarterback's career, you see it done in New England and you've seen it done in a lot of places,' Harbaugh said.
Huddle Up: Jackson will be holding the clipboard, seeing his only game action in the preseason or if disaster strikes during the regular season such as a long-term injury to Flacco. Jackson is a nice dynasty pick in most fantasy leagues, but in seasonal plays he'll only be a waiver wire addition in season if he even sees the field at all.
