  Ravens | Coach praises Terrance West    Wed Jun 22, 11:57 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West looked quick and fast during organized team activities, according to head coach John Harbaugh, and Harbaugh also praised West's improvements without the ball in his hands.

Footballguys view: West seems to have salvaged his career in Baltimore after failed stops in Cleveland and Tennessee. He could make the team as their 4th back if he can beat out Lorenzo Taliaferro and Trent Richardson, who is sidelined with knee surgery. If the Ravens cut West, he should draw interest from another team.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco has mental hurdle    Tue Jun 21, 02:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) doesn't have a problem with running or cutting or doing anything physically in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Flacco's main test is facing the thoughts of getting hit again. 'I don't expect to have those kinds of thoughts linger in my head,' Flacco said. 'But you never know until you get out there and do it again.' Flacco is expected to be ready to go for training camp.

Footballguys view: We'll all be watching to see how Flacco responds under pressure...and especially after he gets hit. He's cool under fire, and Flacco only has to overcome the mental part of his recovery. When he takes a hit and the knee feels okay, Flacco will be the QB he's used to being. Fantasy owners should consider him a low-end QB2. His current ADP is QB25 (14.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Michael Campanaro may not make team    Mon Jun 20, 03:54 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (calf) is at risk of not making the final roster if he cannot stay on the field during training camp, according to The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec. Campanaro missed most of last season with a back injury and is now dealing with a calf injury.

Footballguys view: Campanaro was a seventh-round pick in 2014, and he's running out of time to make a positive impression. Back and thigh problems have limited him to just eight games as a pro. With addition like Mike Wallace (free agency) and Keenan Reynolds (draft) this offseason, the Ravens may not have a spot for Campanaro in 2016.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta can still contribute    Mon Jun 20, 03:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has looked good, is moving well and is still capable of being a significant contributor, in the opinion of The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: We'd like to believe that is possible, but the Ravens are stacked at the position and there may not be a role for Pitta if he's able to make the team. Ben Watson was added in free agency, and he should be the leader at TE in 2016. Second-year pro Maxx Williams will also start to play a larger role this year.

  Ravens | Trent Richardson considered a long shot    Mon Jun 20, 01:24 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson (knee) is a long shot to make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Richardson has a new focus as he stares at a future that doesn't include football. The 3rd-overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft has bounced around the league and been one of the biggest busts in NFL draft history. He had a sore hamstring in minicamp, and now it's been revealed that Richardson needs arthroscopic surgery for a preexisting injury to his knee. We'd be shocked if he makes the Ravens 53-man roster.

  Ravens | Terrance West pushing for spot    Mon Jun 20, 12:54 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West is leaner and more explosive after he worked himself into the best shape of his career. He made some cuts over the past couple of weeks that he probably couldn't last year. If he continues to improve, it'll be hard to cut him.

Footballguys view: Justin Forsett is the clear-cut starter, but behind him there's a group of RBs--including West--competing for the primary backup spot. We'll be watching West in training camp and the preseason, but we think rookie Kenneth Dixon may be the best of the backs after Forsett.

  BAL | Rookie RB Kenneth Dixon impresses with quickness    Sun Jun 19, 06:13 PM

Baltimore Ravens rookie running back Kenneth Dixon, a fourth-round pick this year, may have the quickest feet on the team according to BaltimoreRavens.com writer John Eisenberg.

Footballguys view: Dixon's quickness is a thing to behold, although he's so quick that sometimes he'll trip himself up when making multiple moves in the open field. He's a rookie RB we like a lot in dynasty leagues. Dixon is going to compete for a spot behind starter Justin Forsett in 2016. He's competing with players like Javorius Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Trent Richardson, and Terrance West for a spot. We feel Dixon could be the primary backup behind Forsett as soon as this year, and he's got starter's upside for the future.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco to work out with teammates    Fri Jun 17, 07:02 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he plans to work out with some of his teammates over the next month to make sure his arm is strong enough for the work he will receive during training camp. He said he is not worried about his injured knee.

Footballguys view: There's a chance that Flacco is ready for the start of training camp provided he doesn't suffer any setbacks. The team should limit him in the preseason even if he is practicing in August. The plan is for Flacco to be ready and as near full strength as possible for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Ravens | Two others unlikely to play much    Thu Jun 16, 07:37 PM

  Ravens | Steve Smith won't play much    Thu Jun 16, 07:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') probably won't play much in the preseason, if at all, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: As we've said before, this is expected. They don't want to risk a guy who is a big part of their offense in the most meaningless part of the season. Smith should be a solid WR4 this year, but we don't expect the eye-popping numbers he was putting up last season.

  Ravens | Trent Richardson expecting surgery    Thu Jun 16, 07:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson (knee) will likely need arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason for a pre-existing issue. He will miss some time, but the extent of that missed time was not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We weren't exactly holding our breath to begin with and we aren't really shocked there is a hiccup as there always is with Richardson. He's going to have a hard time making a dent in the rotation while he's on the trainer's table, and with Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and rookie Kenneth Dixon in front of him, Richardson is likely to be cut from yet another team.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco feels good    Thu Jun 16, 01:57 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) doesn't have any tentativeness while running and cutting during practices. However, getting hit in the pocket will be an adjustment, since that's how he suffered the injury. Flacco said he feels good enough to play now if he had to.

Footballguys view: We're not worried about Flacco, but we also don't love him as a fantasy starter. He's a low-end QB2 or a high-end QB1, though if the offense clicks he could produce better numbers. You just can't be confident about it.

  Ravens | Trent Richardson not practicing    Thu Jun 16, 12:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is not on the field for the final day of mandatory minicamp Thursday, June 16.

Footballguys view: Trent Richardson: letting teams and fantasy owners down with authority since 2012. If there is a more perfect definition of "disappointing" than Richardson's career, we'd like to know. He's got a tough battle to even make the roster, and needs all the reps he can get. We wouldn't roster him, as we're not sure the Ravens will either.

  Ravens | Steve Smith day-to-day    Wed Jun 15, 06:02 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') said he is day-to-day and is being smart with his rehabilitation. He is not concerned with playing the preseason if it does not happen.

Footballguys view: He shouldn't be, and the team and fans shouldn't be either. At 4,000 years old (or 37), Smith is clearly on the downside of a nice career. He had a great season last year before his injury, but it's hard to comfortably predict a 37-year old receiver is going to pick up where he left off after an Achilles injury. We have him as a WR4 or WR5 right now, though that could climb. At this point you're hoping to get him at value (his ADP is currently 113 overall and he's WR46) and then see him recapture some of the 2015 magic.

  Ravens | More cap space with Eugene Monroe gone    Wed Jun 15, 04:35 PM

The release of free-agent OT Eugene Monroe (Ravens) gave the Baltimore Ravens $6.5 million in added salary cap space. They will also take on $2.2 million in dead money this year and $4.4 million in dead money in 2017.

  Ravens | Eugene Monroe released    Wed Jun 15, 03:37 PM

Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe was released Wednesday, June 15, after trade talks with the New York Giants fell through, according to sources. The Giants, San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks could still have interest in Monroe, however.

Footballguys view: He'll land somewhere pretty soon, as there are many OL needy teams even beyond those listed above.

  Ravens | Eugene Monroe being held out    Wed Jun 15, 12:16 PM

Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) is being held out of practice during mandatory minicamp this week because of a potential trade for him. Head coach John Harbaugh explained Monroe's situation as a 'front-office-type situation.' Monroe hasn't practiced this offseason after he had season-ending surgery last year, but he has been medically cleared to practice.

Footballguys view: Now it seems like he will be traded. While Monroe isn't a Hall of Famer, he has something left in the tank and there are plenty of OL-needy teams who could be calling for his services.

  Ravens | Eugene Monroe on the move    Wed Jun 15, 08:39 AM

Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe is expected to be traded or released by the end of the day Thursday, June 16.

Footballguys view: While he's not a Pro Bowler, there are plenty of offensive line challenged teams who might take a chance with him.

  Ravens | Mike Wallace turning heads in spring    Wed Jun 15, 01:02 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace impressive team officials with his effort level during organized team activities (OTAs), and he is expected to see plenty of chances this summer with WR Steve Smith (Achilles') still rehabbing his injury and WR Breshad Perriman (knee) nursing an injury.

Footballguys view: We feel like every time Wallace is with a new team, we get some variation on this headline. Admittedly he's a better fit in Baltimore than in Minnesota and with Breshard Perriman recovering from injury, could be the deep guy for the offense. We see him as a WR4 but with upside. Again though, buyer beware as he has been hyped before and fallen short.

  Ravens | Three BAL RBs up for just one spot?    Wed Jun 15, 01:00 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro might be competing with RB Terrance West and RB Trent Richardson for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart behind RBs Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon.

Footballguys view: We think Taliaferro will be fine, as West hasn't impressed so far in his career and Trent Richardson is Trent Richardson. No matter what, this isn't the relevant part of the backfield battle. Forsett and Allen holding off Dixon is the part you want to watch. We lean towards Forsett, but Dixon isn't far behind. No matter what, right now there is little clarity and if you have to draft today, we'd say none of them are better than an RB4 because of it, though we expect Forsett or Dixon to take the lead and then put up RB3 numbers at the very worst.

  Ravens | Keenan Reynolds ready to transition    Wed Jun 15, 12:59 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Keenan Reynolds missed two organized team activities (OTAs) due to Navy graduation festivities and another because the team had to forfeit it due to a collective bargaining agreement violation. He is making the transition from quarterback in college to wide receiver in the pros, so he needs to make up time and show rapid improvement.

Footballguys view: Reynolds was a triple-option quarterback who is quick and agile, but likely just a special teamer this year. Missing time won't help change that anytime soon.

  Ravens | No minicamp for Joe Flacco    Wed Jun 15, 12:59 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is expected to be absent for the team's three-day mandatory minicamp as he continues to rehab his knee injury.

Footballguys view: They'll let that go, as Flacco already has all the nuances of the offense down. Plus, they need him healthy for the season. Flacco never kills it in fantasy, something we see continuing this year, so our expectations are pretty mellow--a low end QB2 or a great QB3.

  Ravens | Steve Smith to miss minicamp    Wed Jun 15, 12:58 AM

As expected, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is not expected to participate in the team's three-day minicamp as he continues to rehab his Achilles' injury. He might be able for training camp and the preseason.

Footballguys view: They'll handle him with kid's gloves, as they should. He knows the offense and the team so missing some time is no biggie. He started off the 2015 NFL season on fire before his Achilles injury, but we aren't sure he can replicate it. We see him as a WR4 for now, but he could move up the rankings if we see him practice.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams tries to stay relevant    Wed Jun 15, 12:56 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams had a promising finish to his rookie season, but he faces plenty of competition for targets with WR Dennis Pitta back from injury and veteran WR Benjamin Watson joining the fray. He cannot afford to fade into the background with all of the competition.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman receives good news    Tue Jun 14, 11:29 AM

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) received a stem-cell injection Tuesday, June 14, and doesn't have a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He's expected to be fine for the season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That is comforting news. We love Perriman's upside, and it was disappointing to see him miss his rookie season in 2015. The Ravens have Steve Smith, Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken as veterans who are competing to establish a pecking order in camp. Smith is the top wideout, but Perriman could work his way up the depth chart behind him if the second-year pro stays healthy and impresses.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman having surgery    Mon Jun 13, 12:54 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) will have arthroscopic surgery Tuesday, June 14, to determine if he'll need reconstructive surgery, according to a source. However, Dr. James Andrews revealed that Perriman may not have a significant anterior cruciate ligament tear.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about the severity of this injury in the future. Perriman missed all of his rookie season in 2015 with a PCL injury, and we hate to see him miss some/most/all of his second season. The Ravens could be in a pinch at WR without Perriman. Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and Mike Wallace will be their top-3 wideouts in 2016.

  Ravens | No timetable for Steve Smith     Sun Jun 12, 05:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') has not be able to participate in organized team activities this offseason and is not sure when he will be able to return. Smith said he will need to do something during training camp in order to be ready for the regular season.

Footballguys view: The Ravens lost Breshad Perriman to a knee injury last week, and that is likely to knock him out for the second year in a row. Getting Smith back healthy is going to be a boost for the Ravens passing attack. We can't wait to see him back on the field looking like his old self. Monitor his progress in training camp as the regular season draws near. Fantasy owners should consider Smith a WR4 in 2016, and he's got a current ADP of WR38 (8.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman down again    Sat Jun 11, 05:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) suffered a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He'll be evaluated by Dr. James Andrews Monday, June 13, to determine if season-ending surgery is required.

Footballguys view: More bad news for Perriman here as he missed all of his rookie season in 2015 due to a PCL injury. He's got talent, but his career is getting off to a rocky start with another (likely season-ending) injury. The Ravens will move forward with Steve Smith, Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken as their top three WRs in 2016.

Baltimore Ravens rookie OT Ronnie Stanley is expected to start right away, according to head coach John Harbaugh. A battle for playing time at the position should take place between Stanley and OT Eugene Monroe (shoulder). Monroe is recovering from shoulder surgery and hasn't been at organized team activities, which has allowed Stanley to get all the repetitions with the first-team offense. Stanley could also be moved to left guard, but he hasn't played there in practices yet. Stanley also never played guard in college.

  Ravens | Two Ravens RBs back from injury    Tue Jun 7, 04:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens RBs Trent Richardson (hamstring) and Kenneth Dixon (hamstring) participated in organized team activities Tuesday, June 7.

Footballguys view: Richardson is making one--perhaps final--effort to resurrect his career with the Ravens. A hamstring injury isn't what he needs when he has to prove that he can stay in shape and get back to being a dominant runner like he was in college at Alabama. Dixon is quicker than fast and can be difficult to bring down in the open field. Justin Forsett is the starter, but fantasy owners need to watch the competition behind him to see who emerges as a potential handcuff or waiver-wire addition.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is making good progress in his recovery and should be able to participate during training camp as long as he does not suffer any setbacks, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Flacco's timetable has always been somewhere during training camp. He may not be ready right at the beginning of camp, but we expect to see him practicing at some point in August. The team should severely limit him in camp with the target of having him start in Week 1.

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (shoulders) ran routes and did individual work during the first week of organized team activities. He didn't do full-team drills. He also dropped 15 pounds in the offseason and is in camp at 260 pounds.

Footballguys view: The Ravens have an interesting collection of TEs on the roster. Gillmore is going to compete with free agent addition Ben Watson and second-year pro Maxx Williams for snaps. The trio may end up becoming a TEBC for the Ravens, and that hurts the fantasy value of all three.

  Ravens | Keenan Reynolds signs rookie deal    Tue May 31, 05:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Keenan Reynolds signed his four-year rookie contract Tuesday, May 31. Financial terms were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: Reynolds can do a bit of everything. He was a QB for Navy, but he lined up at RB during the week of practice for the East-West Shrine Game earlier this year. Reynolds can also play WR if the Ravens want him to. His incredible versatility is coupled with amazing athleticism. The Ravens would be wise to at least use Reynolds as a gadget player this year.


  Ravens | Breshad Perriman an improved player    Sat May 28, 10:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman said the injury that kept him out all of last season made him a better person and a better player.

Footballguys view: We were big fans of Perriman when he came out of UCF last year and the Ravens picked him up in the first round of the draft. Perriman has a good size/speed combination and he's tough to bring down after the catch. A PCL injury knocked him out of his entire rookie season. Perriman has talent, and we'll be excited to see if he can start playing up to his potential in 2016.

  Ravens | Trent Richardson's conditioning in question    Fri May 27, 02:39 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) missed the entire first week of organized team activities after he tweaked his hamstring, and head coach John Harbaugh said Richardson must get healthy. Richardson has struggled with injuries and conditioning in his three-year career, averaging only 3.3 yards per carry. He needs a strong offseason and training camp in order to win a spot on the roster.

Footballguys view: Sometimes the headlines can be written months in advance. Richardson is down with a hamstring injury, and that comes back directly to his conditioning. He's fallen out of favor with multiple teams due to conditioning problems and issues (obviously) with motivation. Richardson's career will likely end as a cautionary "what might have been" tale.
