Alex Collins - RBPosted 3/31/18 6:44pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins has 'proven' he can be the starting running back, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Collins should handle the power back role for Baltimore next year, and he can be a RB2 in standard formats.
Ben Watson - TEPosted 3/28/18 9:24am ET
Free-agent TE Benjamin Watson (Ravens) agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, March 28. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Watson will have some fantasy luster in the offense, but his upside is limited to a mix-and-match TE2.
Ben Watson - TEPosted 3/27/18 1:42pm ET
Free-agent TE Benjamin Watson (Ravens) visited the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, March 27, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Any target of Drew Brees is a worthwhile fantasy asset, but Watson would need to stave off Coby Fleener and Josh Hill, among others, in order to become fantasy relevant in the Big Easy.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 3/22/18 3:23pm ET
Free-agent WR Mike Wallace (Ravens) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 22, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Wallace likely will take over the role that Torrey Smith had last season. He is coming off a solid 2017 season when he recorded 748 yards and four touchdowns. He has fantasy value because of his big-play ability and can be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 3/20/18 9:10am ET
Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) reportedly signed a one-year contract worth $5 million with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, March 20.
Huddle Up: The Colts need help and depth in a lots of places, and Grant should see a significant amount of time on a team that doesn't have any proof players at receiver besides T.Y. Hilton. Ideally, Grant ends up being Indianapolis's third receiver who gets some run in the slot. He could flirt with fantasy relevancy in 2018, but he would probably need an injury to Hilton or Chester Rogers in order for it to happen.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 3/18/18 4:51pm ET
Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (ankle) passed a physical with the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, March 18, but left without a deal. He will visit with the Oakland Raiders next, a source said.
Huddle Up: Grant had a deal in place with the Baltimore Ravens, but he flunked their physical due to an ankle injury he suffered in the regular season finale. It appears the minor setback will not keep him from finding a home soon. Indy might be a better landing spot for his fantasy appeal, since Oakland has Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson, etc.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 3/18/18 6:17pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree will be 'a reliable receiver' for QB Joe Flacco, according to retired WR Anquan Boldin. 'I had a chance to play with Crab for two or three years out in San Francisco,' Boldin said. 'Like I said, competitive guy, he?s a crafty guy, a veteran guy, a guy that can really catch the ball.'
Huddle Up: Crabtree should immediately become Baltimore's top possession guy, and he's also been productive in the red zone. The Baltimore passing game isn't great, but Crabtree should still be a solid WR3 in 2018.
Michael Campanaro - WRPosted 3/17/18 3:23pm ET
A return by free-agent WR Michael Campanaro (Ravens) has not been ruled out by Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. The GM said the door hasn't been closed on Campanaro, and the team has had conversations with him.
Huddle Up: Campanaro hasn't really been much of a factor on the offensive side of the ball, but he has shown glimpses of brilliance on special teams. That's where his value is to his real-life team, and his fantasy value remains rather minimal regardless of where he lands.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 3/17/18 3:22pm ET
Free-agent WR Mike Wallace (Ravens) could still return to the Baltimore Ravens, as general manager Ozzie Newsome said he hasn't closed to door on re-signing the veteran. The club has had conversations with Wallace.
Huddle Up: Wallace has bounced around the league, spending his five seasons with three different teams. He has re-emerged in Baltimore with 124 catches and 1,765 yards with eight touchdowns over the past two years with the Ravens. The team has signed Michael Crabtree and John Brown during the offseason, so it's uncertain if and where Wallace would fit in. His fantasy value might be higher elsewhere.
Ryan Grant - WRPosted 3/17/18 4:29pm ET
Free-agent WR Ryan Grant (Redskins) will visit with the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Grant had agreed on a deal with the Baltimore Ravens, but an ankle injury suffered in the regular season finale caused him to fail the physical and nullify the deal. It would be ironic if Grant landed in Oakland, as the Ravens turned to former Raiders WR Michael Crabtree after getting away from Grant.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 3/14/18 10:24am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin is being released Wednesday, March 14, according to a source. He would have been a salary cap hit of $7.5 million.
Huddle Up: Maclin's release really opens the door for John Brown and Ryan Grant to make some noise in Baltimore, especially if Mike Wallace is not re-signed. Brown, Grant, Breshad Perriman and Chris Moore would lead a subpar receivng corps, but the Ravens could very well draft another receiver. This is a situation to perennially stay away from.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 3/13/18 7:10am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead will be released Tuesday, March 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Woodhead still has sneaky PPR value, maybe as a RB4, depending on where he lands.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 3/13/18 2:11pm ET
Baltimore Ravens exclusive rights free agent RB Alex Collins received a tender offer Tuesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Collins took over the starting job during the regular season and finished with 973 yards and six touchdowns. He should receive most of the work at running back next season and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 3/2/18 6:29pm ET
The Baltimore Ravens are doing 'considerable work' on the quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, and La Canfora believes the Ravens could spend an early-round pick on a potential successor for QB Joe Flacco.
Huddle Up: Even if the Ravens go with a quarterback early on in the draft, Flacco should still be the starter next season. That said, he is a low-ceiling QB2.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 2/26/18 7:40am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead is believed to be in jeopardy of being cut this offseason.
Huddle Up: He wasn't a real good fit in the offense and could still provide small spurts of PPR viability. Depending on where he lands, he could be a solid RB4.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 2/2/18 8:23pm ET
Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said there are 'bigger fish to fry' than finding QB Joe Flacco's replacement, and Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun believes the Ravens won't be looking at quarterbacks in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Flacco is solid enough as far as NFL starters go, but he's firmly in the QB2 range for fantasy purposes. He has just one 4,000-yard season under his belt, and he has thrown for 20 touchdowns or less in four of his last five seasons.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 1/4/18 8:42am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins wasn't guaranteed the starting spot for 2018 as head coach John Harbaugh said the team is looking to upgrade everything.
Huddle Up: Collins broke through with 973 rushing yards (4.6 yards per carry), six touchdowns, 23 receptions and 187 receiving yards this season. He should be in a good spot to at least be part of a 50-50 split. He'll be a low-end RB2 in next year's drafts.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 1/4/18 9:12am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco may be mentoring a successor in the near future, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said the Ravens will 'for sure' be talking about drafting a quarterback this year with Flacco turning 33 years old in a couple of weeks. Baltimore has not selected a quarterback in the first five rounds of a draft since they took Flacco with the 18th overall pick in 2008.
Huddle Up: The bottom line is that Flacco is not good, and he hasn't been good for a while. The Ravens need new life at the quarterback position to replace Flacco's rotting corpse. As has been the case every season since 2008, don't draft Flacco as your starting fantasy quarterback.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 12/31/17 5:25am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (knee) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Wallace was listed as questionable on the injury report but participated in all three practice sessions during the week, including the final two as a full participant. With WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) doubtful to play and the Ravens battling for a playoff spot, Wallace should be viewed as a WR3 option this week.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 12/31/17 12:32pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Wallace should serve as the team's top receiver against the Cincinnati Bengals and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for fantasy owners.
Chris Moore - WRPosted 12/30/17 11:40am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Chris Moore (knee) likely will be in the starting lineup for the Week 17 game if WR Jeremy Maclin is ruled out for the game.
Huddle Up: Moore has received some targets over the last few weeks but is not a strong fantasy option in any league.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 12/29/17 8:53am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) remains out of practice Friday, Dec. 29, and appears unlikely to play in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Mike Wallace is worth flex consideration against the Cincinnati Bengals this week.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 12/29/17 3:58pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 29, and he is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Wallace could have a big role in the offense in regular season finale if he is healthy, as Jeremy Maclin (knee) is doubtful and unlikely to play once again.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 12/29/17 3:58pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 29, and he is listed as doubtful for the Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Maclin should be avoided in all seasonal fantasy leagues and in DFS play heading into the regular season finale.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 12/28/17 12:15pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: That's now two practices missed in a row for Maclin. The Ravens' receiving corps has disappointed all year, but Mike Wallace has flex appeal if Maclin is out.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 12/28/17 1:37pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Wallace looks to be the main receiver for the Ravens in Week 17 as Jeremy Maclin appears to be on the wrong side of a questionable tag. At best, though, Wallace is a flex for those still in the fantasy playoffs.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 12/27/17 12:37pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) was not able to practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Maclin is not the wide receiver you want to rely on for those with fantasy leagues still going. He hasn't done anything since early November and you probably didn't make it this far with him in the starting lineup. Keep him benched even if he plays.
Mike Wallace - WRPosted 12/27/17 1:52pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: It would be a shame for Wallace to miss the last game of the year if Jeremy Maclin doesn't play. Wallace has averaged eight targets in his last two games and would be a solid WR3 candidate if Maclin is out.
Alex Collins - RBPosted 12/26/17 6:38am ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins has a good matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17 as the Bengals are the second-worst team at defending the position in the last five weeks.
Huddle Up: The Bengals have allowed five fewer rushing scores than the Houston Texans, and they're just three points behind them. That's how susceptible to yardage they are through the air and on the ground. Collins has been held in check the last two weeks, but he's a bright spot RB2 play in the finale.
Justin Tucker - PKPosted 12/25/17 6:52pm ET
Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker reached 200 career field goals after converting on all three of his tries in the team's Week 16 game Saturday, Dec. 23. He reached that number on 222 attempts (90.9 percent), becoming the first kicker in NFL history to have a success rate of higher than 90 percent with 200 or more field goals made.
Huddle Up: For anyone who needed more proof that Tucker is the top kicker in the game today, well, here you go. The 28-year-old is enjoying another fantastic season in 2017, having converted on 32-of-35 field goal attempts, and just continues to be as consistent as one can be at his position.
