Baltimore Ravens

AFC North

Wide Receiver Ryan Grant, who reached an agreement with the Baltimore Ravens on a $29 million deal, failed his physical and his deal is null and void, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Grant will now have to look elsewhere for a deal, as Schefter is reporting that the Ravens are turning their attention to Michael Crabtree. Grant had secured a surprisingly large payday from the Ravens -- $29 million over four years, with $14.5 million guaranteed and a $10 million signing bonus -- and it's unlikely he will be able to secure such a contract elsewhere after this failed physical.

The Ravens have released 29-year-old wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. The team saves $5 million in cap space with the move. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Maclin was deemed expendable by the team after Baltimore signed free agent wideouts John Brown and Ryan Grant. Maclin was again hampered by injuries in 2017, as he hasn't played in more than 12 games in a season since 2015. His value will ultimately be determined by his landing spot.

The Baltimore Ravens officially tendered running back Alex Collins as an exclusive rights free agent. (Source: Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Collins was a waiver wire hero last season who rushed for 973 yards and scored six touchdowns in Baltimore's final seven games. The Ravens also cut Danny Woodhead and could add competition via the draft or from Kenneth Dixon, but Collins should enter training camp as Baltimore's starter and is in the RB2 mix.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Ravens have re-signed offensive lineman James Hurst to a 4-year deal worth $17.5 million, with $8 million guaranteed. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's quite a large contract for a player of Hurst's talent level. He's been a decent pass-blocker for the Ravens, but has really struggled to open up holes in the ground game. If his contract does anything, it raises the value of all offensive lineman on the open market.

Justin Tucker perfect Sunday

Mon, Jan 1st 10:34pm EST
By Steve Painter

Justin Tucker was 2-for-2 in field goals and 3-for-3 in extra points in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Many times this season, Tucker was considered the Ravens best offensive weapon. He is a solid kicker and usually perfect.

Baltimore's defense allowed 222 yards through the air, along with three touchdowns, and 146 yards on the ground in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Bengals. Maurice Canady led the team in tackles with eight, seven of those solo. Matthew Judon had a sack. Collectively, the defense recorded three TFL and one QB hit. Chris Moore had an outstanding 87-yard kick return. DB Anthony Levine (foot) left in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact: Baltimore's defense finished the year as a top-12 unit, allowing 325 yards per game. The unit kept the team in the playoff hunt all the way but they couldn't stop the Bengals when it counted.

Danny Woodhead had one carry for three yards and four receptions on six targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Woodhead didn't have much of an impact after returning from a hamstring injury in Week 11, he just never looked 100%. He is signed through 2019 but is no lock to return with a $2.5M salary.

Javorius Allen had five carries for 37 yards in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Allen has made a positive impact in his limited role this year and will possibly be used in the passing-down role in 2018, his contract year.

Mike Wallace had five receptions on 13 targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Wallace finishes out the year with 52 receptions, 748 yards, and four touchdowns as he developed into the team's most reliable receiver. The Ravens will likely prioritize re-signing the free agent this offseason.

Joe Flacco completed 25 of 47 pass attempts for 203 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Ravens’ loss to the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Flacco had a mediocre season at best and going into 2018 he will certainly not be in consideration in single quarterback leagues. But given how he closed the season, he should be a viable option in two-quarterback leagues.

Benjamin Watson had 61 receiving yards on seven catches in Baltimore’s loss to Cincinnati on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Watson had a solid game in the finale in a week that saw many players sitting out at all positions. The Ravens need to get back to using the tight end in 2018 and if they do, Watson could be a top-15 tight end.

C.J. Mosley makes six stops

Sun, Dec 24th 10:35pm EST
By Matthew Terelle

Baltimore Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley turned in a solid performance against the Colts in Week 16. The star linebacker made six solo tackles, including two for a loss, while adding one pass defended. The Ravens went on to win 23-16.

Fantasy Impact: Mosley continues to be one of the top IDP options in fantasy. In addition to high tackle totals, he has flashed big-play ability time and time again in his career. He will finish the season against the Bengals.

Chris Moore had two receptions on two targets for 29 yards in Saturday's 23-16 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Moore was a fill-in for the inactive Jeremy Maclin (knee) and his fantasy value is minimal at this time.

Terrance West is healthy enough to play after recovering from a calf injury but is a healthy inactive for the Ravens on Sunday, according to multiple reports. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Alex Collins playing well, Danny Woodhead returning, and Buck Allen seemingly ahead of West on the depth chart, West is the odd man out in Baltimore for the time being and has no short-term fantasy value.

Baltimore safety Eric Weddle turned in a productive game in Week 9 against the Titans. Weddle had four tackles, an interception, and one pass deflection as the Ravens lost to Tennessee 23-20.

Fantasy Impact: Weddle now has three interceptions on the year, which ties him with several other players for third-most in the league. He has also chipped in 40 total tackles and one forced fumble. The Ravens are on bye in Week 10 but will be back in action against the Packers in Week 11.

Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs picked up a sack in Week 9's 23-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The sack registered as his only tackle of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Suggs only has 25 tackles on the year, but he has registered 5.5 sacks, which gives him some value in IDP leagues. He will be on his bye in Week 10 before traveling to Green Bay to face the Packers in Week 11.

Breshad Perriman had three receptions on seven targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Hopefully, Perriman will convert targets into more receptions ROS but it is good to see him getting a nice number of targets. The Ravens have a favorable ROS schedule so perhaps the team can use the Week 10 bye to get healthier heading into their Week 11 matchup with Green Bay.

Ryan Mallett went 3-for-7 for 20 yards and a touchdown in relief of Joe Flacco during the Ravens' 40-0 win over the Dolphins on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: After Flacco left the game with a concussion he suffered on a very dirty hit from Kiko Alonso, Mallett came in and led the Ravens into the end zone. Mallett isn't an intriguing fantasy option even if Flacco misses extended time though.

Baltimore cornerback Brandon Carr had a productive game in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings. Carr finished with six total tackles, one interception, and one pass defended. The Ravens went on to lose to the Vikings, 24-16.

Fantasy Impact: Carr has been an asset as an IDP player, posting 21 tackles, three interceptions, and seven passes defended. With lockdown corner Jimmy Smith playing on the other side of him, look for quarterbacks to continue to test Carr. That bodes well for his fantasy prospects going forward as he should continue to see plenty of opportunities to make tackles after the catch.

Bobby Rainey has been signed to the 53-man active roster ahead of the Ravens Week 6 game against Chicago. (Source: Ravens wire via USA Today )

Fantasy Impact: Rainey has been added to supplement the absence of Terrance West, but don't expect him to take any sizable role. He was with the Ravens during the preseason but didn't make the final roster so he is somewhat familiar with the offense. He has been fairly productive in his career but hasn't been able to find a stable role with any team and shouldn't be on your roster unless another Baltimore back were to get hurt.
