  Ravens | BAL unlikely looking at Anquan Boldin    Fri Jun 23, 04:23 PM

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) probably is not an option for the Baltimore Ravens at this point because the team is content with the receivers they have on the roster, in the opinion of the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: It's fun to think about Boldin playing in Baltimore again but the reality is he's unlikely to go there. Many reports indicate that Boldin wants to play for a contender and perhaps play near his home in Florida.

  Ravens | More 3-WR sets for Baltimore in 2017?    Thu Jun 22, 07:56 PM

Jeff Zrebeic, from the Baltimore Sun, believes the Baltimore Ravens are going to use more three-wide receiver sets in 2017. They used such formations on 58 percent of the offensive snaps in 2016, a mark that should increase this season. Joe Flacco ranked 11th in the NFL with 429 passing attempts with three or more wide receivers on the field last year. New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning led the league with 580 passing attempts in such personnel packages.

Footballguys view: This would be good news for Flacco's numbers, but could water down the production for the receivers. Mind you, this rhetoric could just be stemming from the fact that the Ravens don't really know how their receivers will shake out. Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace could both do really well, and Breshad Perriman has intriguing speed on the outside if healthy. We need to watch this very closely throughout the summer and preseason. We think Wallace and Maclin have a lot of value but Perriman could be good enough to throw all three receivers into inconsistent chaos.

  Ravens | Marlon Humphrey unlikely to work in slot    Wed Jun 21, 04:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey likely will not receive much playing time as a slot cornerback because defensive coordinator Dean Pees said the team sees Humphrey more as an outside cornerback.

  Ravens | James Hurst working at RT    Wed Jun 21, 02:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens OT James Hurst lined up as the starting right tackle during offseason workouts, but the team could add an offensive tackle during training camp to compete for the right tackle job, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

  Ravens | Jeremy Maclin had a torn groin    Wed Jun 21, 09:23 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) said that he played through a torn groin muscle last season.

Footballguys view: Something didn't seem right last year with Maclin after his Week 9 groin tear that caused him to miss four games. His groin tear didn't require surgery and Maclin is said to be at full strength now. The Ravens were wise to pick him up as they already have dynamic deep-threat receivers like Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman. Maclin can be that go-to guy on underneath routes and should become a favorite of QB Joe Flacco.

  Ravens | Danny Woodhead active in practice    Mon Jun 19, 09:48 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead was a popular target in the passing game during minicamp last week.

Footballguys view: Here is a drumbeat fantasy owners need to be listening for. There are 86 receptions missing from this offense with Dennis Pitta released. Those targets/catches aren't necessarily going to whatever tight end wins the starting job. Woodhead could certainly be in for some of those targets along with WR Jeremy Maclin. We think projecting Woodhead for 50-ish catches in 2017 sounds reasonable.

  Ravens | Chris Moore the fourth receiver    Mon Jun 19, 09:48 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Chris Moore will be the team's fourth receiver on the depth chart, according to owner Steve Bisciotti.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. A fourth-round pick out of Cincinnati in 2016, Moore brings a lot of speed to the field. He can track passes over his shoulder consistently and goes all out to make the catch. Moore is a one-trick, vertical receiver who we are monitoring in deep dynasty leagues.

  Ravens | Darren Waller active during Thursday practice    Fri Jun 16, 06:41 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Darren Waller received a lot of targets during practice Thursday, June 15, and head coach John Harbaugh said he saw a big jump from Waller during the minicamp.

Footballguys view: The tight end position is wide open right now with Dennis Pitta gone. The Ravens have Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams to compete at the position but Waller is a bit of a sleeper. Keep an eye on this battle during training camp, although we think the winner will not post 86 receptions like Pitta did in 2016.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams may not make camp    Thu Jun 15, 03:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams's (knee) status for training camp is in question, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Williams has been a bust with the Ravens, and this injury won't help that. Ben Watson and Crockett Gillmore are competing for the starting tight end job with Dennis Pitta done.

  Ravens | Jeremy Maclin will play in the slot    Thu Jun 15, 01:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin is expected to assume the slot receiver position with WRs Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman lining up on the outside.

Footballguys view: We expected this would be the outcome, and we believe it a good fit with Wallace and Perriman pulling enough coverage off him to give him some open space. We're not sold that he will return to his 1,329 yard, 10 touchdown production during the last year he was in Philly, but the 1,000 yard season when he first arrived in Kansas City seems possible.

  Ravens | BAL to focus on offensive line    Thu Jun 15, 02:17 AM

The Baltimore Ravens will focus on upgrading their offensive line following the signing of WR Jeremy Maclin and are not likely to add another wide receiver prior to camp.

Footballguys view: Maclin still has something left in the tank, so it makes sense to turn back to shoring up the offensive line. Quarterback Joe Flacco was sacked 33 times, which isn't the highest total in the league by any stretch, but absolutely can be improved upon. Keeping Flacco from being pressured will give Maclin a better chance to succeed. We still believe Maclin might end up in the slot with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman on the outside.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman shaken up    Wed Jun 14, 06:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman had the wind knocked out of him after he laid out for a deep pass during practice Wednesday, June 14, according to WR Mike Wallace. Perriman sat out the rest of practice after the incident.

  Ravens | Crockett Gillmore misses practice    Tue Jun 13, 09:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, June 13, because of a hamstring injury he suffered during organized team activities last week. Head coach John Harbaugh said Gillmore's injury is not very serious.

Footballguys view: Gillmore has a chance at more playing time and more targets with Dennis Pitta gone. He's competing with guys like Maxx Williams and Ben Watson for the top spot on the depth chart at tight end.

  Ravens | Benjamin Watson accepts pay cut    Tue Jun 13, 09:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson agreed to restructure his contract last week, which dropped his base salary from $3 million to $1.25 million, according a source.

Footballguys view: Watson missed all of last year due to an Achilles' injury. He is working his way back this offseason and could be the team's leading tight end with Dennis Pitta gone. Watson can make up to $3 million this season if he meets certain incentives.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman displaying confidence    Tue Jun 13, 04:14 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is exuding confidence this offseason, so much so that QB Joe Flacco claimed you can see Perriman's confidence in his eyes.

Footballguys view: Perriman has the natural skill set to exude confidence if healthy. He's big, fast and physical...a combination that can be incredibly tough to cover. Perriman is entering his third season, and the 2015 first round pick has been on the sidelines due to knee injuries for most of his career. If healthy, Perriman could catch 50 or more passes for a Ravens offense that needs help at the WR position...even with the signing of Jeremy Maclin.

  Ravens | Two Ravens back in action    Tue Jun 13, 11:55 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (Achilles') and TE Darren Waller (undisclosed) were back at practice Tuesday, June 13.

Footballguys view: With Dennis Pitta gone, the Ravens need one of their tight ends to emerge. That could very well be Watson. A free agent addition in 2016, Watson's season was cut short by this Achilles' injury. Those aren't as devastating as they used to be, and Watson could be the lead tight end for the Ravens. He had 74 receptions, 825 yards, and 7 touchdowns in 2015 with the Saints but should not produce at that level in 2017. If healthy, projecting him for around 35 catches is more accurate.

  Ravens | Baltimore may still pursue Eric Decker    Mon Jun 12, 03:56 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker could still be traded for or signed by the Baltimore Ravens even with the Ravens signing WR Jeremy Maclin.

Footballguys view: The Ravens need all the help they can get at the wide receiver position. Maclin gives them another veteran to go along with Mike Wallace, but that's about it for experienced wideouts. Adding Maclin and Decker may seem a bit outlandish, but never say never in this crazy league.

  Ravens | Jeremy Maclin chooses Ravens    Mon Jun 12, 03:47 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) signed a two-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens Monday, June 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: He choo-choo-chooses the Ravens like Ralph chose Lisa on the Simpsons. Maclin chose Balitmore over both Philadelphia and Buffalo. His final year in Kansas City was cut short and hampered by a groin injury, and when healthy he may not quite be the speed merchant he was a few years ago. He could man the slot for the Ravens with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman cleaning up on the outside.

  Ravens | Nick Boyle the potential starter    Sun Jun 11, 09:39 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Nick Boyle is a sleeper candidate to replace free-agent TE Dennis Pitta (hip) as the starter this season, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick out of Delaware in 2015, Boyle hasn't done much as a pro with only 24 catches for 197 yards in two seasons. The Ravens have Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams ahead of Boyle on the depth chart but those guys haven't been practicing due to various injuries. We'll see this play out in training camp, but if those three are healthy then we can't see Boyle winning the job outright.

  Ravens | Jeremy Maclin taking his time     Thu Jun 8, 03:14 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) left his visit with the Baltimore Ravens without a contract Thursday, June 8. Head coach John Harbaugh said Maclin wants some time to make a decision.

Footballguys view: Maclin is coming off a down 2016 during which he had injury issues, but he should be able to land somewhere and is just a season away from back to back 1,000 yard years. Fit is critical, and we do like what he could bring to Baltimore.

  Ravens | Barrett Burns joins Ravens    Wed Jun 7, 05:07 PM

Undrafted free-agent TE Barrett Burns (Appalachian State) signed with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, June 7. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Burns isn't very athletic but he was a solid red zone weapon in college. He takes the place of Dennis Pitta, who was released after his third serious hip injury.

  Ravens | Baltimore will meet with Jeremy Maclin    Wed Jun 7, 02:14 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) is scheduled to meet with the Baltimore Ravens after finishing his meeting with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Maclin has a few suitors out there including the Ravens and the Bills. There's not much proven talent behind Mike Wallace at the WR position in Baltimore. Adding Maclin would make sense as he could start and become a reliable target for QB Joe Flacco.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta waived/injured    Wed Jun 7, 01:20 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was waived/injured Wednesday, June 7.

Footballguys view: That's likely a wrap for his pro career. Hip injuries kept him from staying on the field, but Pitta fought back hard to get back in 2016 and had a great season with 86 catches. The Ravens clear up $2.5 million in cap space with this move and could be in the market for guys like WR Jeremy Maclin or WR Eric Decker.

  Ravens | Baltimore possible for Eric Decker    Wed Jun 7, 12:19 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker will be traded or released this week. One of the teams the Jets are talking to regarding a possible trade are the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are in the market for WR help, and that's why they're looking at recently released Jeremy Maclin. That makes Decker a potential addition as well, and expect the Ravens to take a look at him. He missed 13 games in 2016 but when healthy Decker can provide a team with a sound receiver and red-zone threat. He would provide a great complement to WR Mike Wallace in Baltimore.

  Ravens | Jeremy Maclin to visit Ravens    Tue Jun 6, 09:27 AM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) has plans to visit the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, June 7.

Footballguys view: Maclin has a couple of teams interested (Bills, Ravens) and there could be more. The Ravens don't have much behind Mike Wallace in terms of proven talent. Maclin may not be the speed merchant he once was, but he could be added and become a favorite target for QB Joe Flacco.

  Ravens | Baltimore could be Jeremy Maclin suitor    Sat Jun 3, 12:50 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) could be a target for the Baltimore Ravens, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley, who believes Baltimore would be the 'perfect landing spot' for the 29-year-old receiver.

Footballguys view: The Ravens don't have much for experience or proven talent at the WR position other than Mike Wallace. They've got 2015 first-round pick Breshad Perriman, but he is unlikely to be as reliable as a veteran like Maclin. We should see Maclin land with a new team some time before training camp.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta has dislocated hip    Fri Jun 2, 06:43 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has been diagnosed with a dislocated hip and is expected to undergo surgery at some point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The surgery will knock him out for the 2017 season. The continued hip problems will likely end his pro career. The Ravens move forward with Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams as the main TEs on the roster. That's a nice collection, and we'll see which one emerges during the rest of OTAs, minicamp and training camp.

  Ravens | Darren Waller dealing with injury    Fri Jun 2, 05:16 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Darren Waller (undisclosed) has been dealing with an undisclosed injury during the offseason.

Footballguys view: The Ravens have already lost last year's top TE Dennis Pitta for the year to another hip injury. They have depth at the position, but there are question marks. Waller, a converted wide receiver, has seen his pro career held back by injury and suspension.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta's career could be over    Fri Jun 2, 04:15 PM

Updating a previous report, the Baltimore Ravens fear that TE Dennis Pitta (hip) fractured and dislocated his hip for the third time in the last four years. His career likely will be over if the diagnosis is confirmed.

Footballguys view: Pitta missed all of the 2015 season due to hip problems that limited him to seven games combined in 2013 and 2014. He did have a career resurgence last year with 86 catches in 2016. Now, he's done for the season and perhaps will hang up his cleats.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) reinjured his hip during OTAs on Friday, June 2, and is undergoing tests to determine the severity of the injury, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.

Footballguys view: This is not good news. We'll learn more about the severity in the near future, but Pitta's career may be done as chronic hip problems have plagued him in recent years.

  Ravens | Danny Woodhead being utilized     Thu Jun 1, 10:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead was a frequent target of QB Joe Flacco during practice Thursday, June 1, and Woodhead was used in a variety of ways throughout the session.

Footballguys view: Message! Woodhead is a reliable target who creates mismatches every time he's on the field. The potential to be a RB2 in PPR leagues is always there with him based on Woodhead's skill set and his role with his new team. He's got a current ADP of RB32 (7.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman lighting it up in camp    Thu Jun 1, 10:25 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman made multiple long catches in 11-on-11 drills in practice Thursday, June 1.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Ravens and Perriman's dynasty owners here. Perriman, a first-round pick in 2016, missed all of his rookie season due to a knee injury. He's a speed receiver who can get on top of the defense in a hurry. It sounds like Perriman is making big plays and a big impression so far. Consider him a late-round flier in your draft if you have the roster space.

  Ravens | Javorius Allen must be decisive     Sun May 28, 11:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen has been told he needs to be more decisive when running the ball and needs to hit the hole harder.

Footballguys view: Allen only made an appearance in eight games last year, and he was a healthy scratch for the Ravens down the stretch. The team went out and added veteran RB Danny Woodhead in free agency, so Allen is not guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster. He may be safe for a bit as Kenneth Dixon is suspended the first four games of the 2017 season.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman impressing at OTAs    Thu May 25, 04:13 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is making his mark at organized team activities. TE Dennis Pitta said no one on the Ravens is making more plays at OTAs than Perriman.

Footballguys view: Perriman is a player to watch so long as he can stay healthy. A first-round pick in 2015, Perriman missed his rookie season due to a knee injury. Last year (also a bit banged up), Perriman had 33 catches for 499 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He's worth taking a late-round flier on just because of his size/speed combination and the lack of proven WRs not named Mike Wallace in Baltimore.

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams (knee) underwent knee surgery this offseason, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Williams is recovering well and is expected to be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick in 2015, Williams has seen his pro career held back by injuries and inconsistencies. He'll be ready for camp (most likely) but the Ravens are stacked at the position. Williams will compete for targets with Ben Watson, Dennis Pitta and Crockett Gillmore.
