  Ravens | Javorius Allen fumbling away role?    Sun Aug 30, 07:57 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen fumbled the ball before crossing the goal line in his first game replacing RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee) as the backup running back against the Washington Redskins in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 29. 'You have to hold on to the football,' head coach Jim Harbaugh said. 'It's just not possible to put runners out there that fumble the football. He's going to have other opportunities and chances going forward, and I really believe he's going to be a very good player. But, he's going to have to learn from that.'

  Ravens | Two linemen not expected to play    Fri Aug 28, 04:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe (forearm) and OG Kelechi Osemele (Achilles') are not expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, since neither participated in practice this week.

Footballguys view: It's not a big deal...yet. Justin Forsett was able to overcome a shaky offensive line to have a huge season last year, and the lack of playmakers beyond Steve Smith are more of a concern for Joe Flacco. Marlon Brown could be a vertical threat but he's not proven. As always though, we'd rather have these guys get healthy than hurt in a meaningless preseason game.

  Ravens | Will Hill signs two-year deal    Thu Aug 27, 02:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens FS Will Hill signed a two-year deal Thursday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: The Ravens defense is a little bit of a question mark, and we have them ranked as a No. 2 team defense. Hill should help a little of he can stay out of trouble (he was suspended in all three of his previous seasons).

  Ravens | No timetable for Breshad Perriman    Thu Aug 27, 01:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) has no timetable for his return, according to head coach John Harbaugh. His recovery has been slower than expected.

Footballguys view: Harbaugh said the recovery has been taking longer than expected, and that's going to hurt his fantasy value. He was already ranked as a WR5, but that might drop now as well. This could help Marlon Brown's fantasy value, though he remains as more of a WR4/5 guy. Justin Forsett could catch an enormous amount of balls though, and he was already a rock-solid RB2. Steve Smith is going to have to carry the load so he might outproduce our WR4 expectations of him, while tight end Crockett Gilmore seems to be the beneficiary in the passing game. While just a TE3 before this news, you can probably bump him up a rank or so to a TE2, if not a high end one, as OC Marc Trestman likes to utilize tight ends.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta's status unknown    Wed Aug 26, 12:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta's (hip) status is unknown as to whether he will play this season, according to QB Joe Flacco.

Footballguys view: Pitta is trying to make it back, but his injury was so severe that he might never play in the regular season again. In the meantime, the Ravens are going to turn to second-year pro Crockett Gillmore and rookie Maxx Williams at the position.

  Ravens | Lardarius Webb unlikely to go    Wed Aug 26, 11:05 AM

  Ravens | Lorenzo Taliaferro injured    Mon Aug 24, 03:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee) is expected to be sidelined for a few weeks because of a medial collateral ligament sprain.

Footballguys view: Taliaferro cannot be counted on to be available for Week 1 of the regular season. We should see rookie Buck Allen take over as Justin Forsett's primary backup in Baltimore.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco struggles Saturday    Sat Aug 22, 09:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco finished 3-of-7 for 23 yards and two interceptions in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: It's hard to get too concerned about Flacco, as we still see him as a high-end QB2. Losing Torrey Smith is a concern, as is the fact that the rookie replacement for him, Breshad Perriman, has missed the last dozen practices due to injury. Perriman is no more than a WR5, though he might produce more if he gets time to sync with Flacco.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams struggling?    Fri Aug 21, 09:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams has made far fewer plays in the passing game than TE Nick Boyle during training camp.

Footballguys view: Tight ends take some time to develop in the NFL. Williams was our favorite tight end from this draft class, but he may not make a fantasy-relevant impact for a year or two. Stay tuned to his progress through the preseason.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman has sprained PCL    Thu Aug 20, 02:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) has been sitting out because of a sprained posterior cruciate ligament. Perriman is wearing a brace on his injured knee.

Footballguys view: The rookie is behind due to this injury. Dynasty owners should be adding him and tracking his progress as there's a lot of natural talent there. Re-draft owners should not be adding Perriman until he's healthy and in the starting lineup.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman remains sidelined    Wed Aug 19, 12:16 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is present for the team's joint practice with the Philadelphia Eagles but is not participating in any drills.

Footballguys view: Perriman is unlikely to practice this week. If he can't get on the field for the third preseason game, he becomes a late round flyer because he'll likely start very slow.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman should return in a week    Tue Aug 18, 10:41 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is healing slowly, though the results of his MRI were normal, according to a source. He's expected back in a week or so.

Footballguys view: We've been waiting to see Perriman do his thing. The rookie has exciting upside because of his speed and ball-tracking ability. Perriman is behind his teammates since he missed so much time. However, he's got the best natural ability of all the receivers behind Steve Smith. When he gets up to speed, he could be challenging to start on the outside.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman's absence upsets coach    Mon Aug 17, 09:04 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) missed his 14th consecutive practice Monday, Aug. 17, and head coach John Harbaugh wasn't happy about it. 'I hate that he's missing it, hate that he's not out here,' Harbaugh conceded over the weekend. 'I have a knot in the pit of my stomach in some ways about it. In other ways, I know it's all out of our control, and I'll put it in God's hands and let him take care of it. To me, that's the best strategy, right there,' said Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Perriman has the speed to stretch the field, and the rookie does a good job tracking passes over his shoulder. He's raw as a route-runner, and Perriman is behind everyone because of his missed time in camp.

  Ravens | Two Baltimore WRs absent    Sat Aug 15, 03:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens WRs Marlon Brown (back, hamstring) and Kamar Aiken (undisclosed) did not practice Saturday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: The Ravens have two of their top five receivers healthy right now. Slot receiver Michael Campanaro, who scored a long touchdown in the opening preseason game, has a chance for a decent sized role in the offense if this continues.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman not at practice    Sat Aug 15, 03:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) will not practice Saturday, Aug. 15, as he continues to nurse his injured knee. Perriman has not practiced since hurting his knee in late July.

Footballguys view: Perriman has been out longer than expected, which is never a good sign. If he doesn't get back on the field soon, it will limit his possibilities for the early season, if not the whole season. Perriman was raw for a first-round pick and needs these practice and preseason reps to get seasoned. Expect a slow start for Perriman and downgrade him on your draft cheatsheet until he returns.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman not too far behind    Mon Aug 10, 07:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) has yet to practice with the team in training camp, but offensive coordinator Marc Trestman doesn't think Perriman's absence will set him back from learning the offense. Head coach John Harbaugh said Perriman is 'getting closer' to returning, and he didn't rule him out for the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 13. WR Kamar Aiken has a better grasp of the No. 2 receiver job with injuries to Perriman and WR Marlon Brown. The Ravens don't think Perriman's injury is serious, and he has time to catch up even if he misses the game Thursday.

Footballguys view: Perriman may not be too far behind, but the missed time in training camp will hold him back when he eventually returns. We like the rookie's speed and big-play ability, but he's raw as a route-runner who may take time to develop.

  Ravens | Steve Smith in final season    Mon Aug 10, 01:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith has announced that he will retire after the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: And there you have it. Smith has been one of the best receivers over the last 15 years. He's fiery, and Smith has played with that chip on his shoulder for his entire career. Smith faded at the end of last season, but he's still a full-time player for the Ravens and he should be capable of getting 1,000 yards receiving this season.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett ready for encore    Sat Aug 8, 09:57 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett said he plans to prove the team made the right decision re-signing him in the offseason. 'I'm going on my eighth year, and my mindset is I don't ever want to be comfortable,' Forsett said. 'As soon as you get comfortable, that's when bad things happen. I've got to go out there and continue to show that I deserve to be here.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should be looking at Forsett as a low-end RB1. He's currently going off the board at RB11 (2.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Baltimore Ravens DE Brent Urban (biceps) suffered a torn biceps and could miss the entire 2015 season. Urban will be sidelined for 12 weeks because of the injury.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are missing multiple wide receivers and guards, and have now lost two players slated for roles in their defense this year. It has been a rough opening to camp for the perennial playoff team.

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore is listed with the starters on the Ravens' first official depth chart.

Footballguys view: No big shock here. Gillmore is a second-year tight end from Colorado State, and he should begin the season as the starter. However, we're expecting rookie Maxx Williams to take over as the lead tight end someday.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams leaves practice    Thu Aug 6, 01:28 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams (eye) left practice early Thursday, Aug. 6, after he was poked in the eye.

Footballguys view: That's a painful injury, but it's not one that should keep the rookie tight end out of action for long. Williams is a talented move tight end with soft hands and a large frame. He reminds us of a young Jason Witten, and Williams is going to compete with Crockett Gillmore for the starting tight end job in Baltimore.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman remains out    Thu Aug 6, 12:22 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 6. Perriman suffered the injury during the first day of practice and has missed the last six practices.

Footballguys view: Perriman is trying to overtake Kamar Aiken and Marlon Brown (who is also banged up) to start opposite Steve Smith. This missed time can't be helping, but if he gets back on the practice field soon and impresses, we won't hold it against him in our rankings.

Baltimore Ravens WR Marlon Brown (back) recently underwent an MRI for a nerve issue in his back. Head coach John Harbaugh said he is not sure when Brown will return to practice.

Footballguys view: Brown is in the mix for the WR2 job with the Ravens. With this back problem (and with rookie WR Breshad Perriman banged up), Kamar Aiken could be the guy that takes the lead early on in camp.

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) will miss at least a few more days of practice because of his knee injury, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) missed a fourth straight practice Monday, Aug. 3, due to his bruised knee.

  Ravens | Matt Elam out for the season    Mon Aug 3, 03:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens FS Matt Elam (biceps) will have surgery on his torn biceps soon and will officially be out for the season.

Footballguys view: Elam was set to give the Ravens quality depth behind Will Hill at the safety position. He's been a disappointment to this point in his career, but Elam had trimmed his body fat in an effort to play with better quickness and agility. Now, he'll have to wait until next season to show what he can do.

Baltimore Ravens FS Matt Elam (arm) will likely miss the entire 2015 season with a torn biceps muscle suffered during a full-contact practice Sunday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Look for Will Hill and Kendrick Lewis to cement full-time roles in this secondary with Elam out. He was not returning the expected performance on a first-round pick and the Ravens defense might not be hurt that much by his absence.
