Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jamison Hensley believes wide receiver Breshad Perriman "had the most impressive offseason" of any wideout on the club. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Perriman, who is entering his third season in the NFL, is coming off of an impressive offseason, per Hensley. After sitting out his entire rookie year in 2014 with a knee injury, he played in all 16 games for the Ravens in 2016 and accumulated a 33-499-3 stat line while averaging 15.1 YPC. With Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace primed to enter the upcoming campaign as the team's top two receivers, Perriman will likely open the year as Baltimore's WR3. He is a shot in the dark, boom or bust fantasy option for 2017.

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Ryan Mink believes the team "could employ a three-headed monster" backfield in 2017. (Source: BaltimoreRavens.com)

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens, who have tremendous depth at the running back position, could be a nightmare from a fantasy football perspective. Mink believes they "could employ a three-headed monster" backfield approach in 2017. Currently, Baltimore's RB depth chart consists of Kenneth Dixon, Terrance West and the newly acquired Danny Woodhead as the top three backs. While Buck Allen and Taquan Mizzell will likely compete for the fourth spot, sending the other to the taxi squad or waivers. However, with Dixon set to serve out his four-game ban for PEDs to open the year, both Allen and Mizzell's jobs could be safe until the former's Week 5 return. For Woodhead, barring injury, he is the safest RB to target in fantasy football drafts as his role on the team will likely be consistent throughout the course of the season -- he will be the Ravens' primary receiver out of the backfield/ third down back. For West, he is expected to enter the year receiving the bulk of the early-down carries until Dixon's return, at which time the latter will likely maintain that role for the duration. As volatile as Baltimore's backfield appears, I'd still target Woodhead as he is a solid fantasy producer when his health remains intact. In 2015, his last healthy season in which he played in all 16 games with the Chargers, he accumulated 178 touches for 1,091 total yards and nine touchdowns.

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec is reporting tight end Crockett Gillmore (undisclosed) is dealing with a "myriad" of injuries but should be ready for training camp. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gillmore, who is dealing with multiple injuries that likely include a back ailment, will likely be ready for the start of training camp in late July per Zrebiec. With Dennis Pitta and Darren Waller already lost for the 2017 season, Gillmore, who appears to be the healthiest of the Ravens' tight ends, has a prime opportunity to emerge as the starter. He is expected to compete with Nick Boyle, Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams, assuming the latter is ready, for the top spot on the depth chart for the remainder of the offseason. However, I'd expect Watson enter Week 1 as the starter as he is the proven veteran of the group.

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec believes tight end Maxx Williams (knee) may not be ready for the start of the 2017 regular season. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams, who is roughly eight months removed from a major knee surgery, is unlikely to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. In fact, Zrebiec believes the ailing tight end may not be ready for the start of the 2017 regular season and could open the year on the PUP list. With Dennis Pitta and Darren Waller already lost, the Ravens' once deep TE position is a tremendous question mark. They could add Gary Barnidge or Larry Donnell, who are both lingering on the open market. However, if Baltimore elects to move on with what they already have on the roster, Crockett Gillmore or Benjamin Watson are the likely favorites to enter Week 1 as the starter.

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens, who released Dennis Pitta in July after he suffered a season-ending hip injury, are now down their second tight end before the start of the 2017 season as Waller will be lost for the year as a result of his ban. Baltimore's TE depth chart currently consists of Benjamin Watson and Maxx Willaims, who are both coming off long-term injuries, Crockett Gillmore and Nick Boyle heading into training camp. The Ravens may now target Gary Barnidge, who is lingering on the free agent market, to bring in to compete for the starting job in 2017.

Jeremy Maclin played the majority of last year with a torn groin (Source: The Kansas City Star)

Fantasy Impact: After leaving Kansas City for Baltimore in the offseason the loss of pace that was reported could be related more to the injury he was playing through, rather than getting older. While it is still very early in the offseason, the outlook of Maclin's draft pedigree is going to be reliant on his ability to get down the field and the strength in his groin.


Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson has returned to the practice field on Tuesday after suffering an Achilles injury last season, according to Ryan Mink of Baltimoreravens.com. He has been limited to individual drills while nearing the end of his rehab. (Source: Baltimore Ravens)

Fantasy Impact: Watson steps up just when TE Dennis Pitta goes down for his third hip injury. A 14-year veteran, Watson will more than likely be the leader of the squad. The Ravens still have much depth at TE with Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams, Darren Waller and Nick Boyle.

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the Baltimore Ravens have released tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) with an injury waiver on Wednesday. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Just days after Pitta dislocated his hip for the third time in four years, Baltimore released the injury-plagued tight end with an injury waiver. He'll likely undergo surgery to repair the injury, but that will not save his season or his career for that matter. It wouldn't be a shock if Pitta announced his retirement sooner rather than later.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro sprained his toe during Wednesday's OTA practice. According to Head Coach John Harbaugh, the injury is not serious but he will be out for a little while. (Source: Baltimore Ravens)

Fantasy Impact: Campanaro was signed in 2014 and has not played a complete season due to one injury after another. He has recorded 12 receptions for 137 yards and 89 rushing yards in three seasons. He has shown some skill on the field as a receiver and a returner but he is not a reliable player to remain on the field. Too injury-prone.

Baltimore Ravens running back Terrance West has signed his RFA tender on Monday. (Source: Ravens on Twitter)

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.

The Baltimore Ravens have picked up wide receiver Mike Wallace's 2017 option. (Source: Baltimore Ravens on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wallace will return to the Ravens for 2017. Wallace rejuvenated his career in his first year with Baltimore in 2016. After putting up a 39-473-2 stat line with the Vikings in 2015, he bounced back last season catching 72 targets for 1,017 yards and four touchdowns including two games of at least 100 yards receiving. Barring a change in personnel, Wallace will be atop Baltimore's wide receiver depth chart in 2017.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon is suspended for four games for violating the league's PED policy. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dixon, who was expected to enter 2017 atop Baltimore's running back depth chart, was suspended for the first four games of the year for PED use by the NFL. The impending second-year rusher came on strong at the end of the 2016 season scoring all three of his touchdowns from Week 14 and beyond. This will be the second consecutive year Dixon will be sidelined for the month of September -- he missed the first four games of 2016 with an MCL injury.

Ryan Mallet has re-signed with the Ravens on Wednesday but the terms of the deal aren't known yet. Mallet will return as Joe Flacco's backup in Baltimore. Mallet has tossed seven touchdowns in his career to 10 interceptions. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mallet isn't a great backup quarterback but likely returns on a cheap deal. Joe Flacco is durable so Mallet will likely remain on the bench. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Ravens draft a QB late in the draft.

The 49ers will reportedly sign Pro-Bowl FB Kyle Juszczyk barring any negotiation issues. He played for the Baltimore Ravens the past four seasons. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: He appeared in all 64 regular season games with Baltimore after getting drafted in the fourth round in 2013. Shanahan had fullback Patrick DiMarco in the Atlanta offense and Juszczyk would immediately step into a similar role. He’s known for being useful in the passing game, with 97 career receptions for 769 yards and five touchdowns.

Former Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith officially announced his retirement from the NFL Friday. (Source: Steve Smith on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith played 16 seasons in the NFL with two teams, the Panthers (2001-2013) and the Ravens (2014-2016). He finished his career with 1,031 receptions for 14.731 yards receiving and 81 touchdowns and is ranked seventh on the all-time yards receiving list and 12th on the all-time receptions list at the time of his retirement. Smith was voted to five Pro Bowls and was a two-time first-team All-Pro selection. However, he has never been a part of a team that advanced to the Super Bowl. He will be in the Hall of Fame conversation in five years.


Joe Flacco completed 32 of 49 passes for 267 yards and an interception on Sunday against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Flacco set a franchise record with 4,317 passing yards this season, but had a very rough 20:15 TD:INT ratio. Flacco will never be a great fantasy quarterback, but if the Ravens stick with a more pass-happy approach as they did in 2016, he should be a low-end QB2 for 2017.

Baltimore Ravens tight end Nick Boyle makes his first two catches of the season in Sunday's 38 - 6 win against the Miami Dolphins. Boyle returned recently from serving a 10-game suspension for his second violation of the NFL's drug policy.

Fantasy Impact: Boyle was targeted twice in Sunday's win. An excellent blocking tight end, Boyle also has good receiving abilities. He had two receptions for 24 yards, averaging 12 yards per carry. He has become a nice target for Flacco and a nice addition back to the tight end group after Maxx Williams being out on injured reserve and Crockett Gillmore still suffering with his thigh injury.

Kamar Aiken was not present at Ravens’ practice on Thursday. The Baltimore wide receiver is dealing with a thigh issue. (Source: CSN Mid Atlantic )

Fantasy Impact: Kamar Aiken was a valuable fantasy option at this point last season filling in for the injured Steve Smith Sr. This season however, Aiken has been borderline invisible. Through 11 games he has amassed 21 catches on 36 targets for 236 yards and zero touchdowns. Of his 236 yards receiving, 119 of those yards came in Week 6 and Week 7 when Smith Sr. was out with an ankle injury. The Ravens offense has been dysfunctional all season and it appears as though Aiken has not been able to take advantage of his opportunities. Aiken has little to no value in dynasty leagues and is only worth consideration if Smith Sr. or fellow starter Mike Wallace were to go down with injury for any significant time.

Justin Tucker was a perfect 4-for-4 on field-goals attempts and 1-for-1 on his lone extra point attempt in Baltimore’s Week 12 win over Cincinnati Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Justin Tucker was the highest scoring fantasy player for the Ravens Sunday knocking in three field-goals longer than 50 yards. Tucker became the first kicker in NFL history to successfully convert three first-half field-goals from beyond 50. His kicks came from lengths of 57, 52 and 54 respectively. Tucker’s fourth field-goal came from 36 yards out and helped extend the Ravens’ lead early in the fourth quarter. Clearly the best and most constant kicker in the league, Tucker most likely won a lot of matchups for fantasy teams on Sunday. Tucker and the Raven’s host the Dolphins in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Forsett, 30, struggled this season as Baltimore's starter up until his benching in Week 4. He was deemed a healthy scratch and designated as inactive for the contest and was ultimately given his walking papers on Tuesday. He could catch on with another club who is in need of a running back at some point during the 2016 campaign.

Baltimore Ravens running back Javorius Allen is a healthy inactive for the second straight week. (Source: Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens are going with only two running backs again this week: Justin Forsett and Terrance West. Both should see prominent workloads once again against a beatable Browns defense and are worth FLEX consideration. Allen being a healthy scratch two weeks in a row is cause for alarm, and at this point there isn't much reason to hang on to him in all but the deepest of leagues.


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. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Despite having a productive preseason and appearing to be a viable depth player in Baltimore's questionable receiving core, Jeremy Butler was released by the Ravens this afternoon. (Source: ProFootballTalk via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a somewhat surprising move by Baltimore's front office, as the aging Steve Smith is returning from injury and former first-round pick Breshad Perriman remains an unknown quantity. It appears, however, that the front office and coaching staff have faith that those two players, along with Kamar Aiken, can effectively shoulder the receiving burden in Baltimore.

Josh Johnson wasn't overly impressive against New Orleans on Thursday night, but didn't make any major mistakes, completing 18-of-24 passes for 181 yards. Johnson added 7 carries for 19 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: In a larger sample size than his previous preseason outings, third-stringer Josh Johnson capitalized on his athleticism in the red zone, converting a 2-yard touchdown for the Ravens' only offensive touchdown of the evening. That said, he took 3 sacks, arguably trying to make too much happen with his legs, and probably won't push for a roster spot given the Ravens' need for depth on the defensive side of the ball and at other offensive skill positions. Altogether, Johnson put together a nice preseason but isn't likely to be fantasy-relevant this year.

Fantasy Impact: Baltimore's crowded backfield is appearing be trimming down as the 2016 season approaches under two weeks away. With Taliaferro set to miss the first six games of the season and Kenneth Dixon dealing with his own ailment, it looks like it will be Justin Forsett, Buck Allen and Terrance West as Baltimore's top three backs in Week 1 barring unforeseen changes to the roster.

Ravens' number two kicker Will Lutz connected on one extra point attempt and a 39-yard field goal attempt against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Lutz isn't going to threaten for a starting position in Baltimore but could catch on with another organization, or land with the Ravens later this season in the event of an injury to Justin Tucker.

First-year running back Stephen Houston benefited from fellow running back Kenneth Dixon's absence against Detroit, turning six rushing attempts into 11 yards on the ground, losing one fumble.

Fantasy Impact: Houston didn't impress against what had been a rather porous Detroit front seven, and is unlikely to make the Ravens' active roster, even with Dixon out.

The Baltimore Ravens have waived RB Trent Richardson (knee) on Tuesday. Richardson was placed on the PUP list prior to the start of training camp due to a minor knee injury. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Trent Richardson will once again attempt to rejuvenate his career in a new city as the Ravens waived the running back on Tuesday. Richardson struggled to remain on the field during his short stint in Baltimore as he suffered a minor knee injury during offseason workouts. Richardson may not catch on with another club anytime soon and sho6uld remain off of the fantasy radar entering the 2016 season.

WR Marlon Brown was placed on season-ending injured reserve today due to a back injury he has battled the last several weeks. Brown is the 20th Raven placed on injured reserve this season, a franchise record. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown hasn't seen the field in any productive capacity in a while, but his injury does have implications for what's sure to be an open competition at the WR spot this off-season. The third-year receiver produced only 112 yards on 14 receptions this season and with Steve Smith, Sr. returning, Kamar Aiken coming into his own, and 2015 first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman waiting in the wings there might not be much space for Marlon Brown on offense in 2016.

Clausen completed 26 passes on 45 attempts for 281 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. His otherwise positive fantasy stats were offset by two interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Clausen was abused throughout the night, taking two sacks and five hits and ultimately being forced into two interceptions, but the backup quarterback was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise ugly loss. The Ravens have another difficult matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers next week and Jimmy Clausen will likely continue to battle Matt Schaub for the starting job this week. In spite of his efforts, Clausen should remain off the radar in standard fantasy leagues and be considered a desperation play in deep two-QB leagues.

Baltimore Ravens have decided to waive rookie wide receiver Cam Worthy on Wednesday and sign former Carolina Panther's safety Tom Nelson. Worthy injured his right foot during the OTA's in June. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Worthy played college football at East Carolina and 55 receptions for 1,016 yards with four touchdowns last season (ESPN). According to NFL.com, he lacks the quickness and athleticism to be a top ranking WR. The Ravens are deep in the WR department so he should not be missed.

Supernaw is part of the diluted Ravens TE squad. He joined the Ravens last year during the offseason, after a short stint with the Houston Texans. Supernaw first signed with the Texans after starting for four years at Ouachita Baptist University. (Source: Aaron Wilson - Baltimore Sun)

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens need solid TE play if they plan to keep Kubiak's offensive playbook. Supernaw has not had much of a chance to prove himself, but the Ravens apparently seem comfortable with him and Gilmore. If the Ravens don't add more TE talent in the draft Supernaw has fantasy sleeper potential.


Running back Bernard Pierce has been in the spot light for two days. On Wednesday morning, he was arrested for DUI. Later that day, the Baltimore Ravens terminated his contract. On Thursday, he was claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Pierce, 24, had a promising rookie career when he started with the Ravens in 2012. That changed in 2013 when he was plagued with injuries, averaging 2.9 yards per rush. In 2014 he only averaged 3.9 yards per rush causing him to lose the starting spot to Justin Forsett. With the Jaguars, this veteran will stand a better chance of getting a starting spot.

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Ryan Mink believes the team "could employ a three-headed monster" backfield in 2017. (Source: BaltimoreRavens.com)

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens, who have tremendous depth at the running back position, could be a nightmare from a fantasy football perspective. Mink believes they "could employ a three-headed monster" backfield approach in 2017. Currently, Baltimore's RB depth chart consists of Kenneth Dixon, Terrance West and the newly acquired Danny Woodhead as the top three backs. While Buck Allen and Taquan Mizzell will likely compete for the fourth spot, sending the other to the taxi squad or waivers. However, with Dixon set to serve out his four-game ban for PEDs to open the year, both Allen and Mizzell's jobs could be safe until the former's Week 5 return. For Woodhead, barring injury, he is the safest RB to target in fantasy football drafts as his role on the team will likely be consistent throughout the course of the season -- he will be the Ravens' primary receiver out of the backfield/ third down back. For West, he is expected to enter the year receiving the bulk of the early-down carries until Dixon's return, at which time the latter will likely maintain that role for the duration. As volatile as Baltimore's backfield appears, I'd still target Woodhead as he is a solid fantasy producer when his health remains intact. In 2015, his last healthy season in which he played in all 16 games with the Chargers, he accumulated 178 touches for 1,091 total yards and nine touchdowns.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon is suspended for four games for violating the league's PED policy. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dixon, who was expected to enter 2017 atop Baltimore's running back depth chart, was suspended for the first four games of the year for PED use by the NFL. The impending second-year rusher came on strong at the end of the 2016 season scoring all three of his touchdowns from Week 14 and beyond. This will be the second consecutive year Dixon will be sidelined for the month of September -- he missed the first four games of 2016 with an MCL injury.

The 49ers will reportedly sign Pro-Bowl FB Kyle Juszczyk barring any negotiation issues. He played for the Baltimore Ravens the past four seasons. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: He appeared in all 64 regular season games with Baltimore after getting drafted in the fourth round in 2013. Shanahan had fullback Patrick DiMarco in the Atlanta offense and Juszczyk would immediately step into a similar role. He’s known for being useful in the passing game, with 97 career receptions for 769 yards and five touchdowns.

The Baltimore Ravens have parted ways with RB Justin Forsett on Tuesday. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Forsett, 30, struggled this season as Baltimore's starter up until his benching in Week 4. He was deemed a healthy scratch and designated as inactive for the contest and was ultimately given his walking papers on Tuesday. He could catch on with another club who is in need of a running back at some point during the 2016 campaign.

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens are going with only two running backs again this week: Justin Forsett and Terrance West. Both should see prominent workloads once again against a beatable Browns defense and are worth FLEX consideration. Allen being a healthy scratch two weeks in a row is cause for alarm, and at this point there isn't much reason to hang on to him in all but the deepest of leagues.


The Baltimore Ravens have placed RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) on the PUP list. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Baltimore's crowded backfield is appearing be trimming down as the 2016 season approaches under two weeks away. With Taliaferro set to miss the first six games of the season and Kenneth Dixon dealing with his own ailment, it looks like it will be Justin Forsett, Buck Allen and Terrance West as Baltimore's top three backs in Week 1 barring unforeseen changes to the roster.

Category: Injury Updates


First-year running back Stephen Houston benefited from fellow running back Kenneth Dixon's absence against Detroit, turning six rushing attempts into 11 yards on the ground, losing one fumble.

Fantasy Impact: Houston didn't impress against what had been a rather porous Detroit front seven, and is unlikely to make the Ravens' active roster, even with Dixon out.

Fantasy Impact: Trent Richardson will once again attempt to rejuvenate his career in a new city as the Ravens waived the running back on Tuesday. Richardson struggled to remain on the field during his short stint in Baltimore as he suffered a minor knee injury during offseason workouts. Richardson may not catch on with another club anytime soon and sho6uld remain off of the fantasy radar entering the 2016 season.

Teams are still not expressing interest in free agent running back Ray Rice, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. (Source: Mike Florio)

Fantasy Impact: Florio notes that the next wave of looks Rice is likely to receive will come once training camp injuries begin. Even so, it's hard to imagine Rice receiving a significant role or playing time, at least early on in the 2015 season.


Running back Bernard Pierce has been in the spot light for two days. On Wednesday morning, he was arrested for DUI. Later that day, the Baltimore Ravens terminated his contract. On Thursday, he was claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Pierce, 24, had a promising rookie career when he started with the Ravens in 2012. That changed in 2013 when he was plagued with injuries, averaging 2.9 yards per rush. In 2014 he only averaged 3.9 yards per rush causing him to lose the starting spot to Justin Forsett. With the Jaguars, this veteran will stand a better chance of getting a starting spot.

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jamison Hensley believes wide receiver Breshad Perriman "had the most impressive offseason" of any wideout on the club. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Perriman, who is entering his third season in the NFL, is coming off of an impressive offseason, per Hensley. After sitting out his entire rookie year in 2014 with a knee injury, he played in all 16 games for the Ravens in 2016 and accumulated a 33-499-3 stat line while averaging 15.1 YPC. With Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace primed to enter the upcoming campaign as the team's top two receivers, Perriman will likely open the year as Baltimore's WR3. He is a shot in the dark, boom or bust fantasy option for 2017.

Jeremy Maclin played the majority of last year with a torn groin (Source: The Kansas City Star)

Fantasy Impact: After leaving Kansas City for Baltimore in the offseason the loss of pace that was reported could be related more to the injury he was playing through, rather than getting older. While it is still very early in the offseason, the outlook of Maclin's draft pedigree is going to be reliant on his ability to get down the field and the strength in his groin.


Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro sprained his toe during Wednesday's OTA practice. According to Head Coach John Harbaugh, the injury is not serious but he will be out for a little while. (Source: Baltimore Ravens)

Fantasy Impact: Campanaro was signed in 2014 and has not played a complete season due to one injury after another. He has recorded 12 receptions for 137 yards and 89 rushing yards in three seasons. He has shown some skill on the field as a receiver and a returner but he is not a reliable player to remain on the field. Too injury-prone.

The Baltimore Ravens have picked up wide receiver Mike Wallace's 2017 option. (Source: Baltimore Ravens on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wallace will return to the Ravens for 2017. Wallace rejuvenated his career in his first year with Baltimore in 2016. After putting up a 39-473-2 stat line with the Vikings in 2015, he bounced back last season catching 72 targets for 1,017 yards and four touchdowns including two games of at least 100 yards receiving. Barring a change in personnel, Wallace will be atop Baltimore's wide receiver depth chart in 2017.

Former Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith officially announced his retirement from the NFL Friday. (Source: Steve Smith on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith played 16 seasons in the NFL with two teams, the Panthers (2001-2013) and the Ravens (2014-2016). He finished his career with 1,031 receptions for 14.731 yards receiving and 81 touchdowns and is ranked seventh on the all-time yards receiving list and 12th on the all-time receptions list at the time of his retirement. Smith was voted to five Pro Bowls and was a two-time first-team All-Pro selection. However, he has never been a part of a team that advanced to the Super Bowl. He will be in the Hall of Fame conversation in five years.

Kamar Aiken was not present at Ravens’ practice on Thursday. The Baltimore wide receiver is dealing with a thigh issue. (Source: CSN Mid Atlantic )

Fantasy Impact: Kamar Aiken was a valuable fantasy option at this point last season filling in for the injured Steve Smith Sr. This season however, Aiken has been borderline invisible. Through 11 games he has amassed 21 catches on 36 targets for 236 yards and zero touchdowns. Of his 236 yards receiving, 119 of those yards came in Week 6 and Week 7 when Smith Sr. was out with an ankle injury. The Ravens offense has been dysfunctional all season and it appears as though Aiken has not been able to take advantage of his opportunities. Aiken has little to no value in dynasty leagues and is only worth consideration if Smith Sr. or fellow starter Mike Wallace were to go down with injury for any significant time.

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. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec via Twitter)

Despite having a productive preseason and appearing to be a viable depth player in Baltimore's questionable receiving core, Jeremy Butler was released by the Ravens this afternoon. (Source: ProFootballTalk via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a somewhat surprising move by Baltimore's front office, as the aging Steve Smith is returning from injury and former first-round pick Breshad Perriman remains an unknown quantity. It appears, however, that the front office and coaching staff have faith that those two players, along with Kamar Aiken, can effectively shoulder the receiving burden in Baltimore.

WR Marlon Brown was placed on season-ending injured reserve today due to a back injury he has battled the last several weeks. Brown is the 20th Raven placed on injured reserve this season, a franchise record. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown hasn't seen the field in any productive capacity in a while, but his injury does have implications for what's sure to be an open competition at the WR spot this off-season. The third-year receiver produced only 112 yards on 14 receptions this season and with Steve Smith, Sr. returning, Kamar Aiken coming into his own, and 2015 first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman waiting in the wings there might not be much space for Marlon Brown on offense in 2016.

Baltimore Ravens have decided to waive rookie wide receiver Cam Worthy on Wednesday and sign former Carolina Panther's safety Tom Nelson. Worthy injured his right foot during the OTA's in June. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Worthy played college football at East Carolina and 55 receptions for 1,016 yards with four touchdowns last season (ESPN). According to NFL.com, he lacks the quickness and athleticism to be a top ranking WR. The Ravens are deep in the WR department so he should not be missed.

Former Baltimore Ravens kick returner/wide receiver Jacoby Jones did not stay unemployed for long. Nine days after being released from the Baltimore Ravens, Jones signs a two-year contract with the San Diego Chargers. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec is reporting tight end Crockett Gillmore (undisclosed) is dealing with a "myriad" of injuries but should be ready for training camp. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gillmore, who is dealing with multiple injuries that likely include a back ailment, will likely be ready for the start of training camp in late July per Zrebiec. With Dennis Pitta and Darren Waller already lost for the 2017 season, Gillmore, who appears to be the healthiest of the Ravens' tight ends, has a prime opportunity to emerge as the starter. He is expected to compete with Nick Boyle, Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams, assuming the latter is ready, for the top spot on the depth chart for the remainder of the offseason. However, I'd expect Watson enter Week 1 as the starter as he is the proven veteran of the group.

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec believes tight end Maxx Williams (knee) may not be ready for the start of the 2017 regular season. (Source: Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams, who is roughly eight months removed from a major knee surgery, is unlikely to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. In fact, Zrebiec believes the ailing tight end may not be ready for the start of the 2017 regular season and could open the year on the PUP list. With Dennis Pitta and Darren Waller already lost, the Ravens' once deep TE position is a tremendous question mark. They could add Gary Barnidge or Larry Donnell, who are both lingering on the open market. However, if Baltimore elects to move on with what they already have on the roster, Crockett Gillmore or Benjamin Watson are the likely favorites to enter Week 1 as the starter.

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens, who released Dennis Pitta in July after he suffered a season-ending hip injury, are now down their second tight end before the start of the 2017 season as Waller will be lost for the year as a result of his ban. Baltimore's TE depth chart currently consists of Benjamin Watson and Maxx Willaims, who are both coming off long-term injuries, Crockett Gillmore and Nick Boyle heading into training camp. The Ravens may now target Gary Barnidge, who is lingering on the free agent market, to bring in to compete for the starting job in 2017.

Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson has returned to the practice field on Tuesday after suffering an Achilles injury last season, according to Ryan Mink of Baltimoreravens.com. He has been limited to individual drills while nearing the end of his rehab. (Source: Baltimore Ravens)

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the Baltimore Ravens have released tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) with an injury waiver on Wednesday. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Just days after Pitta dislocated his hip for the third time in four years, Baltimore released the injury-plagued tight end with an injury waiver. He'll likely undergo surgery to repair the injury, but that will not save his season or his career for that matter. It wouldn't be a shock if Pitta announced his retirement sooner rather than later.

Baltimore Ravens tight end Nick Boyle makes his first two catches of the season in Sunday's 38 - 6 win against the Miami Dolphins. Boyle returned recently from serving a 10-game suspension for his second violation of the NFL's drug policy.

Fantasy Impact: Boyle was targeted twice in Sunday's win. An excellent blocking tight end, Boyle also has good receiving abilities. He had two receptions for 24 yards, averaging 12 yards per carry. He has become a nice target for Flacco and a nice addition back to the tight end group after Maxx Williams being out on injured reserve and Crockett Gillmore still suffering with his thigh injury.

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens need solid TE play if they plan to keep Kubiak's offensive playbook. Supernaw has not had much of a chance to prove himself, but the Ravens apparently seem comfortable with him and Gilmore. If the Ravens don't add more TE talent in the draft Supernaw has fantasy sleeper potential.

Justin Tucker was a perfect 4-for-4 on field-goals attempts and 1-for-1 on his lone extra point attempt in Baltimore’s Week 12 win over Cincinnati Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Justin Tucker was the highest scoring fantasy player for the Ravens Sunday knocking in three field-goals longer than 50 yards. Tucker became the first kicker in NFL history to successfully convert three first-half field-goals from beyond 50. His kicks came from lengths of 57, 52 and 54 respectively. Tucker’s fourth field-goal came from 36 yards out and helped extend the Ravens’ lead early in the fourth quarter. Clearly the best and most constant kicker in the league, Tucker most likely won a lot of matchups for fantasy teams on Sunday. Tucker and the Raven’s host the Dolphins in Week 13.

The Ravens allowed 28 points to the Raiders and didn't record a sack.

Baltimore Ravens release cornerback Kyle Arrington due to a failed physical designation. Last season he suffered a concussion during the preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers and was placed on injured reserve. His release creates $2.1 million in salary cap space. (Source: Baltimore Ravens)

Fantasy Impact: Arrington signed in 2015 and in 15 games (four starts), he recorded 28 combined tackles (6 assist) and three passes defended. Not a big impact. The team is shaking up the secondary with two new cornerback signings to go along with a crowded CB depth chart including veterans Jimmy Smith & Shelton Price, newly signed Brandon Carr and draft pick Marlon Humphrey.

The Ravens have signed CB Marlon Humphrey, LB Tyus Bowser, OL Nico Siragusa, OL Jermaine Eluemunor, and S Chuck Clark, leaving just their two third-round picks unsigned. (Source: Pro Football Talk)

Fantasy Impact: Humphrey and Clark will both add depth to the Ravens' secondary, with Humphrey likely to see extensive action behind Jimmy Smith and Brandon Carr. Bowser was added to help with arguably their biggest issue on defense, pass rush. With Elvis Dumervil out, he'll likely compete for the starting spot opposite Terrell Suggs. Those three could add enough for this defense to be a reliable fantasy pickup, especially with so few trustworthy defenses. Siragusa and Eluemunor are both expected to play guard, adding depth to the position. The Ravens' offensive line was one of the best just a few seasons ago, but they have lost starters over the years. No one is set to start opposite Marshal Yanda, so it is possible one or even both of these rookies could see plenty of playing time.

Baltimore Ravens veteran safety Eric Weddle made seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 19-14 win against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Weddle is a tough, athletic safety that brings lots of experience to this secondary. He is all over the offense. He has started all 12 games and has made at least one tackle, solo or assisted, in all 12 games. He has recorded 58 tackles, eight passes defensed and two interceptions.

Baltimore Ravens rookie outside linebacker Matt Judon sacked Ben Roethlisberger in Sunday's 21 - 14 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was known as the sack leader while playing at Grand Valley State.

Fantasy Impact: Judon, a 2016 fifth-rounder received three solo tackles in Sunday's game and one sack in the fourth quarter. Judon is becoming a valuable asset to the Ravens defense especially with outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil being sidelined with a foot injury. Judon has a career 13 total tackles and three sacks (NFL).

Fantasy Impact: While this single injury is unlikely to derail the 2016 Baltimore Ravens defense as a whole, it does place the onus for improvement rushing the passer and stopping the run on players who haven't yet made an impact during their time with the club, like Kapron Lewis-Moore and Brent Urban. Time will tell if the Ravens can improve on their 2015 performance, but this is nevertheless a disappointing continuation of the injury narrative that haunted last year's squad.

Fantasy Impact: Terrell Suggs missed the entire 2015 season as he tore his Achilles early on in Week 1 of the campaign against the Broncos. Suggs, 33, is still one of the top pass rushers in the game, but returning to is old form comes into question as age plays a role in his recovery at this point of his career. Suggs is a leader to the Ravens on and off the field and his presence alone will bolster their defense that struggled at times last year. Consider Baltimore's D/ST a mid-range option entering 2016.

Baltimore Ravens resigned cornerback Shareece Wright to a three-year contract, according to the team's website. Wright fought hard to earn a spot on the team and came back strong after his shaky start against his former team, the San Francisco 49ers. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: During the second half of the season, the Ravens defense gave up the second-fewest yards (291.1) per game. Wright went from giving up 132 yards in his first game as a Raven to giving up 256 yards for the next 10 games. With Lardarius Webb being moved to safety, Wright and Smith as starters can be great at stopping the run or pass. Wright ended the season with 40 tackles, five passes defensed in 11 games.

Daryl Smith didn't exactly impress against the Seattle Seahawks, failing to make some tackles he should've, still the ILB managed eight total tackles on the afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: As alluded to above, Smith hasn't been lighting the stat sheet on fire with disruptive plays, but has been good for about eight tackles per game this year and his chipped in three sacks, as well. There is no elite IDP asset on the Ravens defense at the moment, but Daryl Smith has been a reliable fantasy producer, edging out fellow 'backer C.J. Mosley.

Category: Game Recaps


After reaching the top of the stat sheet for the first time in a while last week, Mosley was productive again against St. Louis, racking up 12 total tackles (seven solo, one for loss).

Fantasy Impact: We all know Mosley is a talented linebacker, but he dropped off the fantasy radar earlier this season due to inconsistent production. At this point, it's at least worth stashing C.J. Mosely on your bench as he could very well return to form as a week to week IDP fantasy asset.

Williams totaled five tackles (four solo) and managed one quarterback hit on Michael Vick.

Second-year DT Timmy Jernigan left Saturday's preseason contests against the Washington Redskins with an apparent knee injury during the fourth play of the game. (Source: Baltimore Ravens News)

Fantasy Impact: While the Ravens organization has not yet officially commented on the nature of Jernigan's injury, it becomes concerning in the context of the young player's history -- he missed four games in 2014 with knee trouble and did not participate in much of fall camp this year. His path to a starting position and high snap volume is clear with Haloti Ngata in Detroit, and Jernigan has proven himself an effective, disruptive player when given the chance, which makes these injuries somewhat frustrating from a fantasy perspective. IDP owners are probably best served taking a wait-and-see approach when it comes to Jernigan; he's a stash-worthy player until he strings together multiple healthy games during the regular season.

Jackson left the game in the second quarter from a knee injury. No official word given at this time as to whether or not Jackson will be playing in Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. (Source: Baltimore Sun)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson has not made impressive stats in his three-year career with the Ravens, playing a total of 17 games with 29 tackles, 28 of them last season. Jackson severely sprained his toe in Week 5 last season and was out for several weeks. The beginning of an injury-prone player.

He recorded 58 tackles, two interceptions and four forced fumbles in 12 games before he was cut from the Carolina Panthers. Cason will turn 29 in July. If he plays next season, he will be 30 by Week 1. He might be a done deal.

Head Coach John Harbaugh will not give any predictions but states that Brooks looks good in the first week of the OTAs. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

He played 11 games last season and recorded 19 tackles, one fumble recovery and two passes deflected. He will fall into the rotation behind newly signed free safety Kendrick Lewis.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson was a much sought-after cornerback that had interests from the Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs and the Seattle Seahawks. He finished his college career with 39 tackles and one interception before an injury he suffered in college. The Ravens can never have too many cornerbacks. With his speed and size, he would complement the secondary nicely if he can remain healthy.

Baltimore signed Bose after watching him at the Ravens mini camp but he was released when the team signed cornerback Kyle Arrington.

(Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Last season at Alabama, DePriest recorded 88 tackles, one forced fumble and three passes defensed and had a career 237 tackles, two sacks, three forced fumbles, two forced recoveries and one interception. With his tackling ability, the Ravens should re-sign him to the practice squad before he gets claimed by another team.

Baltimore Ravens strong safety Will Hill is looking forward to the 2015 season. He wants to hit people. Hill signed his $1.542 million tender offer earlier this year. He recorded 42 tackles in eight games last season. (Source: Baltimore Sun)

Fantasy Impact: Hill has noticeably added some upper body muscle to his 6'1" frame. It seems as though the offseason workouts are paying off. Hill will be competing for a starting spot against the former first rounder Matt Elam. Elam had a disappointing 2014 season and was the lowest-graded player on the Ravens defense, per PFF. Although Hill had some previous offseason issues, he appears to be on the straight-and-narrow now. He will probably get the starting spot. I would start Hill before Elam or Brynden Trawick.

Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw will get a chance to get more defensive snaps now that outside linebacker Pernell McPhee left in free agency to the Chicago Bears. According to Coach Harbaugh, Upshaw will probably be more involved in third down situations. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Upshaw was sackless for the regular 2014 season, probably a little "sack-shy" due to receiving over $62,000 in fines from the NFL for roughing the passer in four games. Upshaw is a very aggressive, run-down linebacker and hits his target like a freight train. He ends his season with 42 tackles.

Fantasy Impact: Guy, 25, has the heart of a hard-nosed defender. At 6'4", he ranked 61 among defensive lineman, according to Pro Football Focus. Guy played 11 games with the Ravens last season and made 16 tackles and one pass deflection. He will feel right at home with DeAngelo Tyson, Brent Urban and Kapron-Lewis Moore.

Kendrick Lewis started his career with the Kansas City Chiefs, but more recently he played for Houston Texans. Lewis joins the Baltimore Ravens as a 5 year veteran of the NFL. He has started all but 3 of the 69 games he has played. He adds speed and ball tracking ability to the Ravens' secondary. Lewis has also been recognized as a very instinctive run stopper. (Source: Baltimoreravens.com - Garrett Downing)

Fantasy Impact: Kendrick Lewis is a solid addition to the Baltimore Ravens secondary. He adds speed, experience and most importantly depth. The Ravens DST was a top 7 finisher in fantasy last year even with their injury riddled secondary. Lewis and the rest of the ravens DST will be causing havoc on opposing offenses next season and appear to be a consistent fantasy DST option.

This five-year veteran out of the University of Massachusetts played every game, started two of them with no injuries. He ends his season with 28 combined tackles, two forced fumbles, one interception and one recovered fumble.


Baltimore Ravens rookie outside linebacker Matt Judon sacked Ben Roethlisberger in Sunday's 21 - 14 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was known as the sack leader while playing at Grand Valley State.

Fantasy Impact: Judon, a 2016 fifth-rounder received three solo tackles in Sunday's game and one sack in the fourth quarter. Judon is becoming a valuable asset to the Ravens defense especially with outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil being sidelined with a foot injury. Judon has a career 13 total tackles and three sacks (NFL).

Fantasy Impact: Terrell Suggs missed the entire 2015 season as he tore his Achilles early on in Week 1 of the campaign against the Broncos. Suggs, 33, is still one of the top pass rushers in the game, but returning to is old form comes into question as age plays a role in his recovery at this point of his career. Suggs is a leader to the Ravens on and off the field and his presence alone will bolster their defense that struggled at times last year. Consider Baltimore's D/ST a mid-range option entering 2016.

Bowser was added to help with arguably their biggest issue on defense, pass rush. With Elvis Dumervil out, he'll likely compete for the starting spot opposite Terrell Suggs. Those three could add enough for this defense to be a reliable fantasy pickup, especially with so few trustworthy defenses. Siragusa and Eluemunor are both expected to play guard, adding depth to the position. The Ravens' offensive line was one of the best just a few seasons ago, but they have lost starters over the years.

In 19 games, Rolle recorded 22 tackles, three interceptions and four passes defended.

Baltimore Ravens resigned cornerback Shareece Wright to a three-year contract, according to the team's website. Wright fought hard to earn a spot on the team and came back strong after his shaky start against his former team, the San Francisco 49ers. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: During the second half of the season, the Ravens defense gave up the second-fewest yards (291.1) per game. Wright went from giving up 132 yards in his first game as a Raven to giving up 256 yards for the next 10 games. With Lardarius Webb being moved to safety, Wright and Smith as starters can be great at stopping the run or pass. Wright ended the season with 40 tackles, five passes defensed in 11 games.

Baltimore Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome stated in a previous article that Brooks would miss the first six games of the season. Head Coach John Harbaugh will not give any predictions but states that Brooks looks good in the first week of the OTAs. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Brooks has been practicing 11-on-11 scrimmages in the OTAs. He is a very aggressive player who plays like a cornerback with a 38" vertical leap and his speed. He played 11 games last season and recorded 19 tackles, one fumble recovery and two passes deflected. He will fall into the rotation behind newly signed free safety Kendrick Lewis.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson was a much sought-after cornerback that had interests from the Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs and the Seattle Seahawks. He finished his college career with 39 tackles and one interception before an injury he suffered in college. The Ravens can never have too many cornerbacks. With his speed and size, he would complement the secondary nicely if he can remain healthy.

Will Hill likes to hit people

By Stacie Rigby

Baltimore Ravens strong safety Will Hill is looking forward to the 2015 season. He wants to hit people. Hill signed his $1.542 million tender offer earlier this year. He recorded 42 tackles in eight games last season. (Source: Baltimore Sun)

Fantasy Impact: Hill has noticeably added some upper body muscle to his 6'1" frame. It seems as though the offseason workouts are paying off. Hill will be competing for a starting spot against the former first rounder Matt Elam. Elam had a disappointing 2014 season and was the lowest-graded player on the Ravens defense, per PFF. Although Hill had some previous offseason issues, he appears to be on the straight-and-narrow now. He will probably get the starting spot. I would start Hill before Elam or Brynden Trawick.

He has started all but 3 of the 69 games he has played. He adds speed and ball tracking ability to the Ravens' secondary. Lewis has also been recognized as a very instinctive run stopper. (Source: Baltimoreravens.com - Garrett Downing)

Fantasy Impact: Kendrick Lewis is a solid addition to the Baltimore Ravens secondary. He adds speed, experience and most importantly depth. The Ravens DST was a top 7 finisher in fantasy last year even with their injury riddled secondary. Lewis and the rest of the ravens DST will be causing havoc on opposing offenses next season and appear to be a consistent fantasy DST option.
