WR - FA
Week 13 Outlook
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver/returner Keenan Reynolds was released Friday during the team's first group of final roster cuts. He transitioned from quarterback to wide receiver/returner. During the final preseason game, he had two punt returns totaling only 10 yards.
Reynolds was a 2016 NFL sixth round draft pick out of Navy that made a crucial error on a punt return. Instead of calling "fair catch," he tried to run after the catch and he fumbled. Reynolds needs better ball judgement and route running skills.
Baltimore Ravens returner/wide receiver Keenan Reynolds fumbled and lost a critical punt return that was recovered in Thursday's 14-13 win against the New Orleans Saints. He should have called "fair catch" but instead, he tried to run and was tackled.
Reynolds is a 2016 six-round Navy-product that has transitioned from quarterback to wide receiver. In Thursday's game, he only had two punt returns for 10 yards and a fumble return. It is highly unlikely that he will be the returner for Week 1.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Keenan Reynolds records a 46-yard punt return during the Ravens first preseason game against the Washington Redskins. Reynolds made the transition from quarterback to wide receiver in 2016 after he graduated from Navy. Coach Harbaugh felt as though he did well in training camp.
Reynolds has been on the practice squad to allow him time to adjust to his new position. He was added to the active roster during the last game of last season but he did not play. He could compete with either Michael Campanaro or Tim White for a WR/RS position.
Former Naval Academy quarterback Keenan Reynolds, who was trying to catch on with the Ravens has a wide receiver, was released Saturday as part of their final cuts.
Reynolds struggled in camp at both wide receiver and return specialist, so his release is not entirely surprising. There have been rumors linking the Ravens to veteran return man Devin Hester, who would be a practical replacement for Reynolds and the injured/waived Michael Campanaro.
Keenan Reynolds admitted that he's not where he wants to be in his transition to WR in the NFL. He is said to be doing better when it comes to the return game.
Reynolds isn't expected to be fantasy relevant in 2016, but he could hold future value considering his slash nature. If he wants to stick with the Ravens he'll probably need to do it through the return game, so his progress in that area will be worth monitoring along with how he does as a new WR.
