Terrance West signs RFA tender

Baltimore Ravens running back Terrance West has signed his RFA tender on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

On the same day that LeGarrette Blount has been linked to the Ravens, West signed his one-year RFA tender. The third-year veteran is expected to open the 2017 season as Baltimore's starting running back on early downs due to Kenneth Dixon's four-game suspension, while Danny Woodhead assumes the role of the team's primary receiver out of the backfield as well as their third down back. However, when Dixon returns, similar to last season, West's role, plus, his fantasy value will likely begin to diminish as the former is viewed the Ravens' long-term solution at running back. West should be targeted at the back-end of fantasy drafts for 2017.

Terrance West's stock is at an all-time high after this offseason

The Ravens added no running backs from the draft, Kenneth Dixon is suspended for the first four games, and West is first on the depth chart, making this an ideal situation for the former Browns running back.

Fantasy Impact

Justin Forsett had a breakout year back in 2014, but since his fall, the Ravens' backfield has been open to competition. West's competition this year are 2016 fourth-round pick Dixon, who will start off this season suspended, and former Chargers back Danny Woodhead, who is more of a pass catcher than a pure runner. This is West's spot for the taking, even though he was only okay last year. In 2016, West ran 193 times for 774 yards and five touchdowns while catching 34 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown.

Terrance West is 'No. 1 back' on Baltimore's depth chart

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told the media Terrance West is currently the No. 1 running back on the team's depth chart.

Fantasy Impact

With Kenneth Dixon suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season due to a violation of the NFL's PED policy, West is currently the No.1 running back on Baltimore's depth chart. Despite the addition of Danny Woodhead who is a career role player and pass-catching specialist, West is still expected to open the upcoming season as the starter. However, West's role could diminish once Dixon returns from his ban. Expect Dixon and Woodhead -- if they both could remain healthy -- to garner the most fantasy value on the Ravens' RB depth chart in the 2017 fantasy football campaign.

Terrance West receives tender

The Baltimore Ravens placed an original round tender on running back Terrance West Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

West received an original round tender from the Ravens Tuesday which correlates to a third round selection and $1.797 in guaranteed money. While he played in all 16 games in 2016, the first the first time he accomplished that feat as a pro, he produced career-high numbers -- West accumulated 774 yards rushing and five touchdowns on the ground while catching 34 targets for 236 yards and a touchdown as a receiver. With Kenneth Dixon emerging as a potential stud, West will likely enter 2017 No. 2 on the Ravens' running back depth chart but should continue to have a notable role in the offense.

Terrance West unproductive in season finale

Terrance West gained 18 yards on five carries and caught four passes for 17 yards on Sunday against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Kenneth Dixon was more productive than West in the game, out-touching him 13 to seven and out-gaining him in yards by a margin of 63 to 35. West is a restricted free agent, so it's unclear whether he'll return to Baltimore. If he does, he'll likely be more of a handcuff to Dixon, at best.
