  Ravens | John Brown 'better than advertised'    Tue Aug 14, 09:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown has been 'a complete receiver for us,' according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Brown will rival Michael Crabtree for weekly ranking and value as long as he is healthy, and if Crabtree draws Tre'Davious White Week 1, Brown will be more valuable in the matchup against the Bills. Reserve a late-round pick for Brown, but be ready to move on if he gets dinged and can't get back on the field, a common scene from recent years.

  Ravens | John Brown remains standout performer    Sat Aug 11, 12:11 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown made three impressive catches during practice Saturday, Aug. 11, and continues to be the best receiver during training camp, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley. Brown and QB Joe Flacco have shown great chemistry throughout camp.

Footballguys view: Flacco still has a big arm and loves to stretch the defense vertically. That's exactly the skill set Brown brings to the wide receiver position. Brown is currently going undrafted in 12-team PPR leagues but keep his name on your waiver wire speed dial.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson runs for TD    Thu Aug 9, 11:37 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed seven of his 18 passes for 119 yards and rushed five times for 21 yards and a touchdown in a 33-7 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Jackson still has work to do as a passer, but his touchdown run was too easy against NFL defenders and highlighted what makes his long-tern fantasy ceiling as high or higher than any other 2018 rookie quarterback.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman shows some life    Thu Aug 9, 11:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman caught three passes on four targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in a 33-7 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Perriman is playing for his roster spot and did a lot more to impress than he did in the Hall of Fame game. He's still barely rosterable in dynasty leagues.

  Ravens | Tony Jefferson not worried about injury    Wed Aug 8, 07:49 PM

  Ravens | Hayden Hurst has made strides    Wed Aug 8, 03:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst has proven to be a playmaker this offseason and has improved his route-running, according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.

Footballguys view: Hurst flashed a bit for the Ravens during the Hall of Fame Game earlier this month. The rookie from South Carolina is set to be the team's lead tight end and should become a favorite target of QB Joe Flacco. Rookie tight ends may take some time to produce at a fantasy relevant level but some Fantasy GMs are taking Hurst at TE21 (14.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Baltimore Ravens WR Jaelon Acklin (undisclosed) reverted to the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Aug. 7.


  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon, Maxx Williams leave early    Tue Aug 7, 04:56 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (undisclosed) and TE Maxx Williams (ankle) left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 7, and walked off the field with athletic trainers.

Footballguys view: Both of these players have quite the injury history, so this situation is worth monitoring...but only for Fantasy GMs in dynasty leagues.

  Ravens | Several players back at practice    Sat Aug 4, 12:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (hamstring), TE Mark Andrews (undisclosed), LB Tyus Bowser (undisclosed) and OT Greg Senat (undisclosed) all returned to practice Saturday, Aug. 4, after missing time over the past week.

Footballguys view: Dixon's absence was short enough that it shouldn't affect his status in the backfield. He's a battle with Javorius Allen for touches behind Alex Collins. Allen is the more reliable player, but Dixon has more talent and upside.

  Ravens | Marshal Yanda activated    Sat Aug 4, 12:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens OG Marshal Yanda (shoulder) passed his physical Saturday, Aug. 4, and has been activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Yanda is one of the best in the league and his return represents a big boost to this offensive line, and offense in general. The Ravens should be more productive than last year, which is a good sign for Alex Collins.

  Ravens | Hayden Hurst scores Thursday    Thu Aug 2, 11:45 PM

  Ravens | Two catches for Breshad Perriman    Thu Aug 2, 11:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman had two catches for 19 yards and a drop in a 17-16 preseason win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Perriman's hold on a roster spot is getting more tenuous by the day. His size and speed could get him picked up by another team if he doesn't make the Ravens, but he's not worth a roster spot in typical dynasty leagues right now.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards tallies 11 touches    Thu Aug 2, 11:39 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards rushed 10 times for 35 yards and caught one pass for 23 yards in a 17-16 preseason win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: If Kenneth Dixon can't get healthy in training camp, Edwards has a shot at a roster spot, but he's a street free agent level talent.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson uneven in debut    Thu Aug 2, 11:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed four of his 10 pass attempts for 33 yards, a touchdown and an interception and ran eight times for 25 yards in a 17-16 preseason win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Jackson's debut had a ton of attention, but failed to deliver. This will strengthen the narrative that he needs a redshirt year to learn the offense and adjust to the pro game, and probably earn Robert Griffin III a roster spot as the backup.

  Ravens | Michael Crabtree seeing action in red zone    Tue Jul 31, 12:26 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree has been 'a popular target' for Joe Flacco in red zone drill this summer, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: Crabtree has a great catch radius and he is effective in close quarters on contested balls. He is as good a bet as any to lead the team in receiving touchdowns this year. Flacco did well with a similar receiver in Anquan Boldin, although they didn't click as a red zone combo.

  Ravens | John Brown keeps impressing    Sat Jul 28, 09:41 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown continued to 'stand out' among the receivers during practice Saturday, July 28, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: When Brown is healthy, there's no doubt he can make plays. The Ravens have revamped their WR corps this offseason, going to free agency for the likes of Brown, Michael Crabtee and Willie Snead. The only Ravens WR Fantasy GMs are drafting is Crabtree, currently going off the board at WR28 (6.05) in 12-team PPR leagues. If Brown impresses in training camp and the preseason, keep him on your waiver wire speed dial in deeper leagues.

  Ravens | Tyus Bowser leaves practice    Fri Jul 27, 05:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Tyus Bowser (undisclosed) left practice early Friday, July 27, but did not appear to be favoring anything when he was walking off the field.

Footballguys view: Bowser has a ton of upside as a pass rusher, and can also drop into coverage. The Ravens defense is deep, so they can afford losing him for some period of time if this ends up being serious, but he is poised to do more in the defense this year.

  Ravens | Chris Moore has solid practice    Fri Jul 27, 05:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Chris Moore was one of the standout performers during practice Friday, July 27, and appears to be the leading candidate for the No. 4 receiver job, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: Moore has the speed and game to operate well on deep balls, and he has the longest tenure with the team of any receiver on the roster. If John Brown's injury issues are present in camp or the preseason, Moore will be on our late round radar, assuming he keeps this up.

  Ravens | Two Ravens idle Friday    Fri Jul 27, 09:25 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (hamstring) and TE Mark Andrews (undisclosed) are out of practice Friday, July 27.

Footballguys view: Dixon hasn't played since 2016. While he is more talented than Javorius Allen, Allen has been so dependable that he is going to figure into the backfield is some way. The Ravens backfield is very productive and support two fantasy relevant backs, so one of Dixon or Allen will pay dividends on a late pick. As long as Dixon is sidelined, Allen is the favorite.

  Ravens | John Brown turns in solid practice    Thu Jul 26, 11:36 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown had his best practice of training camp Thursday, July 26, catching a 50-yard touchdown and adding a difficult catch along the sideline, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: The only thing holding Brown back from fantasy relevance is his sickle cell condition that makes it hard for him to stay healthy. He is definitely a top late round pick with his proven quality game and clear path to a starting job in an offense that uses Joe Flacco's arm to take frequent deep shots.

  Ravens | Mark Andrews remains sidelined    Thu Jul 26, 02:57 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Thursday, July 26, and has missed the last three practices.

Footballguys view: Andrews is a little bit of a project, but could be a good seam receiver if he can stay on the field by improving his blocking. He can line up in various positions, so we are anxious to see him compete in camp.

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring Thursday, July 26, and left practice.

  Ravens | Jaleel Scott has bad day    Thu Jul 26, 11:19 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jaleel Scott dropped three passes in individual sessions Thursday, July 26.

Footballguys view: Rookies can have a rough time entering the NFL, and drops can be a symptom of that. We aren't expecting big things from him this year, so while he is worth watching, he's not worth rostering.

  Ravens | Jordan Lasley making early impression    Wed Jul 25, 02:39 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jordan Lasley has been one of the standout performers during the early part of training camp because his route running is allowing him to get open on a consistent basis.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick out of UCLA in the 2018 NFL draft, we'll monitor Lasley in deep dynasty leagues. The Ravens revamped their WR corps this year, and guys like Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead are ahead of the rookie on the depth chart. Most importantly, we'll be watching in the preseason to see what kind of connection Lasley has with fellow rookie Lamar Jackson.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson to see regular-season snaps    Tue Jul 24, 11:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is 'one way or another ... going to be out there, taking snaps,' according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Jackson has been the talk of Ravens camp...just ask Joe Flacco. Whether it's as a quarterback or as a gadget player, expect the Ravens to get Jackson's athleticism on the field one way or the other. It's not outrageous to spend the last pick in your draft on Jackson...just to see what happens.

  Ravens | Hayden Hurst back to practice    Tue Jul 24, 01:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, July 24, after missing two due to a reported soft-tissue injury. CB Jimmy Smith (Achilles') and TE Mark Andrews (undisclosed) were among eight players who did not practice Tuesday, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: Hurst and Andrews have been missing time due to soft tissue injuries. The pair of rookie TEs will compete to establish a pecking order at the position. We could see Hurst end up winning the job in the Ravens revamped passing attack.

  Ravens | Jimmy Smith on sidelines    Mon Jul 23, 01:04 PM

Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (Achilles') is not participating in practice Monday, July 23.

Footballguys view: Smith has practiced earlier in training camp but the team is going to bring him along slowly. Expect him to get some days off during camp. It's remarkable to consider that he's avoided the PUP list as Smith injured his Achilles' last December. When healthy, Smith is one of the top corners in the game and one of the Ravens best defenders.

  Ravens | Two rookie TEs on sidelines    Mon Jul 23, 01:01 PM

Baltimore Ravens TEs Hayden Hurst (undisclosed) and Mark Andrews (undisclosed) are not participating in practice Monday, July 23.

Footballguys view: We like both of these rookie prospects in dynasty leagues. They've been missing time early in camp due to 'soft tissue' injuries. When healthy, expect Hurst to compete to be the lead tight end. Andrews is a fine receiving threat but he might begin his pro career as the second or third tight end on the depth chart.

  Ravens | Tim White off to good start    Sun Jul 22, 06:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Tim White has performed well during the early part of training camp and appears to have decent lead over other receivers for one of the final roster spots, in the opinion of The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: White had a good summer last year, but a thumb injury ended his preseason. His ability to return punts should give him an edge to make the final roster.

  Ravens | Hayden Hurst remains out    Sun Jul 22, 06:04 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (undisclosed) did not participate during practice Sunday, July 22. Hurst has missed the last two practices.

Footballguys view: Hurst has a minor soft tissue issue, but the team will be cautious with the first-round pick. If this stretches out for a week or more, it could affect how ready he is at the demanding tight end position.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco showing off athleticism    Sun Jul 22, 04:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is 'moving and grooving better than he has in several years,' according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.

Footballguys view: Flacco had a serious knee injury recovery and then back issue to work through during the last two camps. This year, it appears he is at full speed, and first-round pick Lamar Jackson is already impressing to put pressure on him. Flacco could have an 2017 Alex Smith-like resurgence if he can harness these factors.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson impressing coaches    Sun Jul 22, 04:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has shown 'accelerated improvement' and is 'way ahead of the curve now,' according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.

Footballguys view: If Jackson doesn't play this year, it will only be because the Ravens are winning and Joe Flacco is playing well. On a team with a less-established starter, Jackson would be on the fast track to playing and shaking up fantasy leagues a la Deshaun Watson. Keep him on your redraft radar.

  Ravens | Hayden Hurst confident    Sat Jul 21, 10:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst said he knows there is pressure on him to produce immediately, but he has 'a lot of confidence' in his football ability.

Footballguys view: Hurst was a first-round pick, but he isn't the physical marvel that 2017 first-round trio OJ Howard, David Njoku, and Evan Engram presented, and he's not an elite two-way tight end. There's a lot of targets at tight end up for grabs for the Ravens, but Hurst should go undrafted in fantasy leagues and only get interest with a hot start. Third-round pick Mark Andrews is also very capable as a receiver and should figure into the tight end picture immediately.
