Fantasy Football Player Notes

2024 Draft Rankings

Derrick Henry Note

Some players are simply built differently. Henry has and remains one of those guys. Last year, at age 29, he ranked first in rushing attempts and second in rushing yards while showing little drop-off in his efficiency metrics. Last season, among 68 qualifying backs, Henry ranked ninth in explosive run rate and 11th in yards after contact per attempt (per Fantasy Points Data). While he will cross the dreaded age 30 threshold this year, it's tough to project a drop-off for Henry and any reasons that he can't continue to chug along as an RB1., especially when Henry has proven over the last two seasons that his pass game utility should increase despite his advancing age. Over the last two years, Henry has ranked 11th and 14th in TPRR and seventh and first in YPRR among backs. The big fellow isn't slowing down. Continue to believe in the King in 2024 as the Ravens' workhorse back.

Lamar Jackson Note

Jackson logged his first top-three fantasy quarterback finish last year since 2019. In both years, Jackson hoisted the MVP trophy. Maybe he goes for a third piece of hardware. His rushing ability remains a huge part of his excellence after ranking first in rushing yards per game, third in red zone carries, and fourth in rushing touchdowns last year. Jackson also remains one of the best passers in the NFL, although no one wants to admit that when they enter a Jackson discussion. In 2023, Jackson ranked 10th in passer rating from a clean pocket, first in CPOE, sixth in adjusted completion rate, and fourth in hero throw rate. Jackson has difference-maker top-three upside at the quarterback position still in 2024.

Mark Andrews Note

Before he was lost to injury in Week 11, Andrews was still producing as an elite tight end. In Weeks 1-10, he ranked third in target share (22.1%), fifth in YPRR (2.05), and fifth in FD/RR (0.102). Andrews has been a round two or three selection over the last few years. In 2024, Andrews comes at a discount, but make no mistake, he still has TE1 overall upside and remains a difference-making fantasy asset. He should challenge Zay Flowers for the team lead in targets this season.

Zay Flowers Note

Flowers had his moments as a rookie. While he didn't live up to the preseason hype, it wasn't a dreadful rookie showing by any stretch, especially after Mark Andrews was out. Without Andrews, Flowers saw his first read share increase to 30.7%, and his FD/RR rate increased ever so slightly from 0.081 to 0.085. Flowers, during that stretch (eight games), earned six end zone targets, which was awesome compared to the single end zone target he saw in Weeks 1-10. With Odell Beckham Jr. gone in 2024, the Baltimore passing attack will further consolidate around Flowers and Andrews.

Keaton Mitchell Note

We'll see when Keaton Mitchell is active this season after tearing his ACL in Week 14, but when he's ready to go, Mitchell should be the primary backup to Derrick Henry in Baltimore. Mitchell was impressive in his rookie season. Among 71 qualifying backs, he buried the competition ranking first in explosive run rate, missed tackles forced per attempt, and yards after contact per attempt (per Fantasy Points Data). Mitchell could have some stand-alone flex appeal working alongside Henry this season, but it likely won't be a consistent stream of fantasy points.

The Baltimore Ravens signed wide receiver Rashod Bateman to a 2-year contract through the 2026 season. Ravens OC Todd Monken says he's seen "tremendous growth" from WR Bateman and expects him to receive the ball a lot this season per Ryan Mink, Editorial Director for the Ravens.

Devontez Walker Note

Devontez Walker's college career showcased his explosiveness and knack for making big plays, especially evident in his remarkable dominator rating at Kent State. Despite his impressive physical attributes and speed, Walker's limitations in generating yards after the catch are notable. Drawing comparisons to Marvin Jones, he presents significant upside but also carries a boom-or-bust label, highly dependent on his landing spot for optimal performance. Joining the Ravens in the fourth round offers him the opportunity to work with Lamar Jackson, but he faces competition for targets in a crowded receiving corps led by Zay Flowers and Mark Andrews. Walker's success in the NFL may hinge on his ability to carve out a role in a balanced offensive scheme.
