RB - BAL
Week 17 Outlook
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.
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.
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.
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.
Terrance West totals 55 yards against the Steelers
Terrance West rushed 10 times for 27 yards and caught all three of his targets for 28 yards on Sunday against the Steelers.
West was outshined by Kenneth Dixon on the ground, but, as usual, provided solid production in the passing game. West now has five straight games with at least three catches, giving him more value in PPR leagues than in standard formats. Expect West and Dixon to again split work in Week 17 against the Bengals.
Terrance West gains 122 total yards against the Eagles
Terrance West gained 77 yards on 13 carries and caught four passes for 45 yards on Sunday against the Eagles.
West out-snapped Kenneth Dixon 26-15 and out-touched Dixon 17-9 on Sunday, once again clouding the running back picture for the Ravens. It appears that the Ravens rely on West more when protecting a lead, and Dixon more when chasing points. That makes both West and Dixon risky options in Week 16 against the Steelers.
