Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 6/13/19 9:08am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson said Thursday, June 13, he might work with throwing coach Tom House before the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Jackson derived the bulk of his fantasy value from his legs last season while completing 58.2 percent of his passes for 1,201 yards, six TDs and three interceptions. Draft Jackson as a QB2 for now, any strides he makes with his passing will only push him toward QB1 range.
Marquise Brown - WRPosted 6/13/19 9:19am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) hopefully will be ready for training camp as he recovers from foot surgery, head coach John Harbaugh said Thursday, June 13. Harbaugh added he's optimistic if Brown has no setbacks.
Huddle Up: Brown was the first wide receiver selected in the NFL Draft, but health and location (landing in an aerially-challenged offense) concerns say that Brown is nothing more than a late-round flyer in non-dynasty leagues.
Chris Moore - WRPosted 6/9/19 2:47pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Chris Moore is being hailed as a potential breakout candidate in 2019 by owner Steve Bisciotti and head coach John Harbaugh. 'It's up to the player to make the move and do something about it. But I would say Chris is ready to do that and has been ready to do that. He practices really hard, he works hard in the weight room, he knows the offense very well, and he makes spectacular catches out here very often.'
Huddle Up: Moore, a fourth-round pick in 2016, has 44 career receptions for 490 yards and four touchdowns over three years in the league. He'll enter the year behind Willie Snead and rookie Marquise Brown on the team's depth chart, battling Jordan Lasley, Miles Boykin, and Michael Floyd for targets from sophomore QB Lamar Jackson.
Gus Edwards - RBPosted 6/6/19 4:36pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards said his role in the offense has not changed even though the team added RBs Mark Ingram and Justice Hill this offseason. He said he has been working with the first-team offense during practices.
Huddle Up: The Ravens are expected to run a lot this season, so Edwards should receive plenty of touches. Fantasy players should monitor the team's running back situation to see how the runners will be used in the offense. Edwards can be at least a No. 3 running back in standard leagues if he is the starter.
Marquise Brown - WRPosted 6/6/19 4:59pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) will not participate in practice until training camp.
Huddle Up: Brown should be ready for the start of training camp and will need time to build chemistry with Lamar Jackson. The Ravens were not a great passing team when Jackson took over as the starter but will be working with a new offensive scheme. Brown could be a late-round option in deeper leagues but will not be a weekly starting option.
Marquise Brown - WRPosted 6/5/19 7:27am ET
Baltimore Ravens first-round pick WR Marquise Brown has agreed to a four-year contract Wednesday, June 5. Financial terms weren't disclosed, and the deal includes an option for a fifth year.
Huddle Up: Brown is recovering from a foot injury that should keep him grounded until training camp. He's a WR4 prospect, but he could enhance his value if he hits the ground running in camp.
Marquise Brown - WRPosted 5/31/19 6:22pm ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) remains on track to return from foot surgery in time for training camp.
Huddle Up: Missing time won't help him build chemistry with Lamar Jackson, but Brown's electric speed should allow him to turn simple passes into big plays. Jackson's current limitations as a passer pushes Brown into WR4 territory for now, but the speedy receiver has enough upside to warrant a first-round selection in rookie drafts.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 5/30/19 6:35pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson 'is not going to be running 20 times a game' in 2019, according to owner Steve Bisciotti.
Huddle Up: While it is understandable that the Ravens want to keep Jackson from taking a beating, he isn't going to become a pure pocket passer any time soon. Jackson's dynamic running ability should keep him in the QB1 mix, even if he remains inconsistent throwing the ball.
Breshad Perriman - WRPosted 5/26/19 5:47pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Breshad Perriman has been 'taking passes to the house on an already daily basis' during OTAs, according to Carmen Vitali of Buccaneers.com.
Huddle Up: There's been nothing but positive reports about Perriman this offseason, but you have to take it all with a grain of salt until he produces in games that matter. At best, he's a late-round lottery ticket.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 5/24/19 7:03am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson struggled with his accuracy in organized team activities, and he especially had trouble in the red zone. Jackson showed increased velocity, but several of his passes wobbled through the air. Jackson has impressed with his work in the team's conditioning program this offseason.
Huddle Up: Jackson has tremendous upside due to his legs, but he's a work in progress through the air. The silver lining is he appears to be a hard worker, which provides hope for future development. Jackson is a midrange QB1 in fantasy.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 5/12/19 1:08pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco will be the only quarterback that works with the first-team offense during offseason workouts, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
Huddle Up: Flacco likely needs to work with the starting offense this offseason since he is learning a new offense. He will have a solid group of receivers to work with in 2019 but has thrown less than 20 touchdowns in three of the last four seasons. He should only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Justice Hill - RBPosted 4/27/19 9:49am ET
Oklahoma State RB Justice Hill was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens with the No. 113 pick of Round 4 in the 2019 NFL Draft on Saturday, April 27.
Huddle Up: Hill is a big play waiting to happen and gives Baltimore yet another explosive option in the offense. Hill has legitimate RB3 potential in 2019, although he'll need to stand out in the offseason and play his way into the No. 2 spot behind a well-worn Mark Ingram. Cautiously, Hill is a handcuff or a fourth back.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 4/26/19 10:39pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco is expected to be the team's starter for a while, according to GM John Elway, who said he envisioned Flacco and QB Drew Lock as a 'Brett Favre-Aaron Rodgers situation' with the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: For those that need a refresher, the Packers drafted Rodgers in 2005 but did not start him until 2008. That would put Lock on track for the starting nod for the 2022 campaign. Of course, that ignores just how poorly Flacco has played in recent years, and given how much Elway has struggled with QBs in a post-Manning world you have to wonder how long the leash would be if Flacco continues to trend downwards. At this point it's hard to see much value in Flacco or Lock in single-year leagues.
Marquise Brown - WRPosted 4/25/19 8:01pm ET
Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 25th pick in the NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Brown has electric speed, and with defenses focusing on Lamar Jackson and the running game, Brown should have some opportunities to turn short passes into big plays and to beat opponents down the field. He's a first-round candidate in rookie drafts.
Justin Tucker - PKPosted 4/24/19 8:04am ET
Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker agreed to a four-year, $23.05 million extension Wednesday, April 24, which makes him the highest-paid kicker in the league. He receives $12.5 million fully guaranteed in the first two years and an $8 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Tucker is a solid PK1 to target in the final rounds of drafts.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 4/16/19 9:39am ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson said Tuesday, April 16, that his 2018 accuracy issues were the result of his mechanics breaking down while trying to the ball out. As a result, Jackson said he's been working on his mechanics and consistency this offseason.
Huddle Up: Jackson can use work in all aspects of the passing game after completing only 58.2 percent of his attempts and throwing for 1,114 yards in seven regular-season starts as a rookie. He's a high-end QB2 consideration, though, due to his monster rushing upside.
Gus Edwards - RBPosted 4/15/19 4:42pm ET
Baltimore Ravens exclusive rights free-agent RB Gus Edwards signed his one-year tender offer Monday, April 15, and will make $570,000 in 2019.
Huddle Up: Edwards was a big part of the offense during the second half of the 2018 season but likely will lose the starting job with Mark Ingram on the roster. He could still see some carries during games but may only be a handcuff to Ingram in fantasy leagues.
Darren Waller - TEPosted 3/26/19 11:34pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller is 'interesting' and someone the team is going to give 'a chance of a lifetime' in 2019, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Huddle Up: Waller has consistently been hyped since entering the league in 2015 as a sixth-round college receiver in Georgia Tech's option offense who made the move to tight end shortly thereafter, but he has amassed only 18 receptions over that time. It's not unthinkable that Waller could break out in his age-27 season, but any hype with him needs to be tempered until after the draft because it is likely the Raiders will address the position. Dynasty leaguers could do worse than taking a shot on him, however.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 3/15/19 9:42am ET
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco said Friday, March 15, that he's as healthy as he's ever been and is planning to be the team's quarterback solution for the foreseeable future. 'I hope they are dragging me out of this building a long time from now,' Flacco said.
Huddle Up: Flacco just turned 34, but with the myriad rules now favoring the offense and the passing game, quarterback lifespans certainly are longer than they used to be. If the Broncos can shore up their offensive line and add a pass-catching weapon or two -- namely a threat at tight end -- Flacco could be in line for a solid QB2 bounce-back fantasy season this fall.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 3/14/19 11:57am ET
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco is entering his prime, in the opinion of general manager John Elway. Denver's offensive system is similar to the system Flacco succeeded in with former Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator and former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak. Furthermore, head coach Vic Fangio knows Flacco and coached with the Ravens when Flacco was there.
Huddle Up: The addition of Flacco was a divisive move by the Broncos. Flacco is 34 years old, so it's hard to believe he's in his prime. If Denver can get a couple solid years out of him then it will be a win. Nonetheless, he is not and has never been a reliable starting fantasy quarterback.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 3/13/19 1:26pm ET
Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco has officially been traded from the Baltimore Ravens with the league's new year beginning Wednesday, March 13, at 4 p.m. EDT. Baltimore receives a 2019 fourth-round pick from Denver.
Huddle Up: Flacco is a fringe QB2 in deeper leagues and has a suspect cast of receiving options at his disposal. Look for safer options or players with far more upside to man your backup spot.
John Brown - WRPosted 3/12/19 9:45am ET
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown plans to sign a three-year contract with the Buffalo Bills worth $27 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Brown had a big first half of the 2018 season but struggled once Lamar Jackson took over as the starting quarterback. He likely will compete for a starting job with the Buffalo and can still make big plays. He can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
John Brown - WRPosted 3/6/19 4:24pm ET
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown is expected to seek $8 million to $9 million per season in his next contract, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Brown struggled during the second half of the season but played well with Joe Flacco as the quarterback. He should receive interest from multiple teams and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his situation.
Gus Edwards - RBPosted 2/27/19 1:55pm ET
Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards is the starting running back at this point but will have competition for the job, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Edwards took over the starting job during the second half of the season and finished with 718 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games. He appears to have good chemistry with Lamar Jackson and could be a No. 2 running back in most leagues if he keeps the starting job.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 2/25/19 11:40am ET
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree is expected to be released Monday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: By the time he was able to rectify those issues, the Ravens made the change from Joe Flacco to Lamar Jackson and became the most run-heavy team in the league. Crabtree should not struggle to find work on the open market as a complementary wideout, but he should no longer be considered a primary option. Depending on his next landing spot, the 31-year-old may have enough left to be considered a touchdown-dependent WR3 in fantasy. Baltimore figures to be targeting receivers heavily again this offseason.
Michael Crabtree - WRPosted 2/25/19 2:35pm ET
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree's release was made official Monday, Feb. 25, saving the Ravens $4.6 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Crabtree is over the hill, before the 2018 season he stringed together seasons with nine, eight and eight touchdowns in succession. He'll land somewhere, but he can't be seen as more than a WR4.
John Brown - WRPosted 2/21/19 6:31pm ET
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown could be pursued by the Cleveland Browns in free agency to fill a need for a deep threat in the passing game, in the opinion of Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Brown was off to a fast start in 2018 before the Ravens made the move to Lamar Jackson at quarterback and adopted a run-heavy approach. Baker Mayfield could make better use of Brown's big-play potential, allowing him to become a touchdown-dependent WR3.
Lamar Jackson - QBPosted 2/19/19 6:07pm ET
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is expected to be the focal point of an offense that is undergoing a 'reimagining,' according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. 'We're really looking at this as a completely new beginning as if we were a new staff. I think we have run an offense here that has been kind of morphed over the years, and we really want to start fresh, start new, and (with) everything from our language, our formations, how we do everything, rebuild the thing from the ground up. That's one angle. The other angle is really, how do we want to move forward with Lamar Jackson? He's a unique player with a unique skill set, so let's build an offense that really accommodates that, as opposed to try to fit him into something that other people had once done,' Roman told The Athletic.
Huddle Up: All six of Roman's offenses with San Francisco and Buffalo finished inside the top 10 in rushing attempts and yardage, so it would be a shock if an offense built around Jackson - a more dynamic athlete than Colin Kaepernick and Tyrod Taylor - doesn't do the same. The trick will be to develop Jackson enough as a passer so defenses cannot load the box. So long as he can stay healthy, expect Jackson to be a high-upside fantasy QB1 in 2019.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 2/18/19 12:23pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco passed his physical, making it possible for the Broncos and Baltimore Ravens to make their traded official in March. The Broncos agreed to trade the better of their fourth-round picks for Flacco.
Huddle Up: The move came at the bewilderment of many, with Flacco's ceiling being about as high as Case Keenum's. Nonetheless, Flacco has proven to be a backup fantasy quarterback throughout his mediocre career.
Joe Flacco - QBPosted 2/17/19 11:49am ET
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco also was coveted by the Washington Redskins, helping spark the Broncos to make the trade with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, Feb. 13.
Huddle Up: Just as the QB he is replacing (Case Keenum) was in 2018, value Flacco as a mid-to-low-end QB2 next season in an offense that isn't expected to feature a high volume of passes.
