  Ravens | Mike Wallace goes to NFI list    Thu Jul 28, 08:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Thursday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Already? Self-proclaimed "better than he ever was with the Steelers" Wallace failed the conditioning test twice. He will pass it eventually but it makes us feel even more confident in our assessment of him as a WR6. Wallace just isn't someone anyone--Ravens included--can depend on.

  Ravens | Two Ravens revert to IR    Thu Jul 28, 07:53 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Cavellis Luckett (undisclosed) and CB Jumal Rolle (undisclosed) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, July 28, after being waived/injured Wednesday, July 27.


  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon day-to-day    Thu Jul 28, 04:39 PM

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) is considered day-to-day because of his medial collateral ligament sprain. Head coach John Harbaugh said Dixon could return to practice as early as Friday, July 29.

Footballguys view: He already had a lot of work to do in order to get a significant piece of the carries away from Justin Forsett, who is still considered the starter. His durability was a pre-draft concern, so this will just reinforce that. We think he looks like an RB5 or so right now, but every snap he misses sets him further back.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco happy with practice    Thu Jul 28, 04:37 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) said he felt comfortable during practice Thursday, July 28, but wishes he was able to complete more passes. He did not try to run during practice but did move around the pocket. It is not known if he will receive any playing time in the first preseason game or if the team will hold him out until the third preseason game.

Footballguys view: As Flacco is coming off an injury, the Ravens may take it easy with him, so we might not see him do much before Week 1. We're not sure how well he'll play and the receiving options around him are middling, so right now we see him as a low-end QB2 with upside, but we could see him rise up the rankings as his reps get more numerous and we see how healthy he is.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon has knee injury    Thu Jul 28, 01:52 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 medial collateral ligament sprain, according to a source. The injury is considered minor, but the team likely will proceed with caution.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the rookie here. A minor MCL sprain could shut him down for a week or so. He's competing for a backup spot behind starter Justin Forsett in 2016.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon exits with injury    Thu Jul 28, 11:54 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (leg) left practice Thursday, July 28, with a leg injury.

Footballguys view: One of the concerns around Dixon was his durability, as he had knee issues in 2013 and missed two games last season with an ankle issue. If he can stay healthy, he could be a very good back but his physical running style might make that hard to do. As of now, we see him as no more than a RB3/RB4 with a little upside if something happens to Justin Forsett.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett expects to be bell cow    Wed Jul 27, 10:01 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett expects to hang onto the starting job and do the bulk of the work at the running back position ahead of RBs Javorius Allen, Kenneth Dixon, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Terrance West. The team also has RB Trent Richardson (knee) competing for a roster spot. While Forsett might be optimistic, he is 31 and the team is leaning toward reducing his carries.

Footballguys view: Forsett seems to have recovered from his broken arm, but that age is a concern to some. The veteran back has low mileage on his body as he didn't start getting a large workload in the pros until a couple of years ago. As the Ravens will reduce his carries a little we expect him to be more of an RB3 than the RB2 he might be if he got 20-25 carries every game.

  Ravens | Jake Long to meet with doctor    Wed Jul 27, 06:16 PM

Free-agent OT Jake Long (Falcons) is scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews to have his surgically repaired knee examined before the Baltimore Ravens finalized a deal with him. Long suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in 2013 and 2014.

Footballguys view: Long's career has been derailed by injuries, so it's wise for the Ravens to fully examine him before finalizing any sort of contract with the veteran tackle. If he's cleared, Long is no lock to make the 53-man roster as a reserve tackle for the Ravens.

  Ravens | Baltimore waives two players    Wed Jul 27, 05:50 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Cavellis Luckett (undisclosed) and DB Jumal Rolle (undisclosed) were waived/injured Wednesday, July 27.


  Ravens | Joe Flacco will wear knee brace    Wed Jul 27, 04:51 PM

Baltimore Ravens OB Joe Flacco (knee) said he will be wearing a brace on his surgically repaired knee during practices and all of the regular season games.

Footballguys view: Flacco is coming back from a major knee injury, so Ravens fans should be happy he's wearing a brace for added protection. He can scramble, but that's not a major part of his game so we don't think the brace will be a problem for Flacco.

  Ravens | Mike Wallace fails conditioning test    Wed Jul 27, 04:24 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace failed his conditioning test Wednesday, July 27. He will be able to take the test again Thursday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Wallace certainly is not the same player he was when he splashed onto the scene with the Steelers. The failure of the conditioning test is a bit of a red flag, but fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting him to light up the box score anyway. We have a feeling the speedy, one-route receiver will pass the test soon enough.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta cleared to practice    Sun Jul 24, 10:11 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has been cleared to participate in the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Pitta is attempting an unlikely comeback from two hip fractures, but the Ravens would be happy to welcome back his services on a team with injury issues at wide receiver. If he is good enough to make the team, then Pitta could cost size/speed wide receiver to tight end convert Darren Waller a spot on the 53.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco not placed on PUP list    Sat Jul 23, 03:56 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to training camp next week.

Footballguys view: A good sign for Flacco here. Even though he's not on PUP, we think the Ravens take it easy on Flacco in camp and the preseason.

  Ravens | Kamar Aiken not a projected starter    Thu Jul 21, 07:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith and Mike Wallace are projected as the two starting wide receivers for Baltimore, according to ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: We have both ranked as WR4/WR5 options. Smith was on fire last year before he got hurt so we could see a return to similar production, but he's old and it's hard to buy in heavy on that. Wallace has failed everywhere he's gone after he left the Steelers, and we don't know that we can get enthusiastic about a new spot for him just because Joe Flacco has an immense arm. We feel better about Old Man Smith over Wallace, in point of fact.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco looks like himself    Tue Jul 19, 03:20 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is already throwing like his regular, healthy self, according to WR Kamar Aiken. Aiken said Flacco looked the same as he always has when the caught passes from him for the first time this offseason. 'He looks 100% to me,' Aiken said. Aiken added that Flacco didn't' have any 'limp or lags' and that he was surprised Flacco looked as good as he did. 'I'm just happy to get him back.'

Footballguys view: Great news for the Ravens here. Flacco will be eased into training camp and the preseason as he continues to recover. Fantasy owners should look at Flacco as the mid-range QB2 he's always been for most of his career. Year two of the Marc Trestman offense should have a few more wrinkles for the passing attack.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco will be ready for first day    Mon Jul 18, 12:37 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) said he plans to be practicing on the first day of training camp Thursday, July 28.

Footballguys view: That's great news for the Ravens, but expect the team to take it easy on him as we go through camp and the preseason. In fact, it would be a bit of a surprise if we see Flacco play in the preseason given the nature of his knee injury. All signs point to Flacco being ready to go by Week 1 of the regular season.

  Ravens | Justin Tucker gives Ravens ultimatum    Thu Jul 14, 07:35 PM

Baltimore Ravens K Justin Tucker has vowed not to re-sign with the team after this season if the two sides cannot come to an agreement on a long-term deal before the Friday, July 15 deadline, according to his agent Rob Roche. The franchise tag for kickers this season is $4.5 million, which is what Tucker would be earning if he can't secure his desired long-term contract prior to Friday afternoon.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon has quick feet    Wed Jul 13, 09:28 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon may have the quickest feet of the team's running backs, and he's dynamic running and catching the football.

Footballguys view: Dixon is an exciting rookie RB who is currently a reserve behind starter Justin Forsett. His foot frequency is amazing, but we'd like to highlight his ability to gain yards after contact. In 2015, Dixon was 5th in the FBS with an average of 3.59 yards rushing after contact. At 210 pounds, Dixon is not the biggest back but he is relentless and fights for yards. Grab him later in your drafts as a handcuff to Forsett, or jock-block the Forsett owner and stash Dixon as a sleeper.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett the lead back    Tue Jul 12, 05:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is still the 'clear lead dog' in the Ravens' backfield, according to Ryan Mink of baltimoreravens.com. The starting job is Forsett's to lose, with RBs Javorius Allen, Kenneth Dixon, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrance West and Trent Richardson lurking behind him.

Footballguys view: He's the lead dog and a fine all-purpose back--when healthy. Forsett missed the final six games of the 2015 season with a broken forearm, but he's back healthy and ready to lead this team on the ground. The veteran back is a good receiving back as well, so there's no need for him to come off the field unless he needs a breather. Fantasy owners are cool on his prospects for this year as Forsett has a current ADP of RB32 (7.10) in 12-team PPR leagues. There's a chance Forsett could catch 70 passes and finish the season as a top-15 fantasy RB, so get him at a value while you can.

  Ravens | Justin Turner may want top kicker deal    Fri Jul 8, 04:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker likely wants to receive a better deal than the four-year, $17.2 million deal New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski signed last year. The Ravens have until July 15 to sign Tucker to a long-term deal or he will play under the one-year franchise tender of $4.572 million. In the opinion of CSNMidAtlantic.com's Clifton Brown, the Ravens want to sign Tucker to a new deal and Tucker wants to stay.

  Ravens | Darren Waller suspended    Fri Jul 1, 05:03 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Darren Waller has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are loaded at the TE position. They picked up Ben Watson in free agency to go along with second-year pro Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore. Add in a returning Dennis Pitta and you can see how there's no room for Waller on the 53-man roster. The converted WR from Georgia Tech had a couple of suspensions in college, so this is nothing new. He can participate in all of training camp and the preseason, but he'll have to be damn impressive to win a job.

  Ravens | Baltimore a run-first team    Fri Jul 1, 04:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Marc Trestman said the Ravens will continue to be a run-first team in 2016. 'We're always looking at ourselves as a team that should be able to run the ball first,' Trestman said. 'That's just the way we want to play it, and everything starts with the physicality of our run game, and the physicality of our runner. That's how we coach offense here, and everything starts there.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to keep this in mind when considering RB Justin Forsett. Last year, the Ravens used parts of the Gary Kubiak offense ran in 2014 while Trestman tried to implement some of what he did. This year, the Kubiak fingerprints will still be on this offense but Trestman should be a bit more comfortable with adding some of his scheme. Forsett needs to stay healthy, and if he does we see him as a low-end RB2 with upside. His current ADP is RB32 (7.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams could be stunted    Thu Jun 30, 07:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams may not see an ideal amount of targets due to the Ravens' depth at tight end this year. Williams isn't worried, though. He said the tight end group is going to make each other better and 'figure it out' as the season approaches.

Footballguys view: We'd agree with this assessment. Unless an injury to Ben Watson happens, we don't see Williams getting as much work as he could have. Williams is a fine prospect, and we love his upside in dynasty leagues. However, Watson is the better player now and should be the lead TE for Baltimore in 2016.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams more comfortable    Wed Jun 29, 07:41 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams said he is more comfortable entering his second season because he knows what to expect each day. Williams said he improved his strength this offseason but is not sure how much weight he gained. He is not sure what his role will be in 2016 because things can change before the start of the season.

Footballguys view: Williams was our favorite TE in last year's draft class. With experience from 2015, Williams should be better this season. However, the Ravens went out and signed Ben Watson in free agency...plus it looks like Dennis Pitta is going to be able to play again. Don't forget Crockett Gillmore too! As you can see, the Ravens TE situation is a bit messy. We think Watson is the lead TE for them in 2016 as Williams continues to develop his pro game.

  Ravens | Michael Campanaro healthy    Wed Jun 29, 07:26 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (calf) said he has completely recovered from the calf injury he suffered this offseason and is looking forward to training camp. He likely will have to compete with WRs Kaelin Clay and Keenan Reynolds for a roster spot.

Footballguys view: Campanaro is a player we're monitoring in deep dynasty leagues. He's a slot receiver with the quickness to get open on underneath routes. Campanaro is also dangerous after the catch, but he's not a lock for the 53-man roster.

  Ravens | Coach impressed with Mike Wallace    Wed Jun 29, 04:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace showed he is a complete receiver during offseason workouts and is expected to be a big part of the offense in 2016, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Wallace was a disappointment in his one year with the Vikings. He hasn't been a top-5 fantasy WR since he was with the Steelers in 2010 and 2011, and we're not expecting him to regain his form now that he's back in the AFC North. The Ravens are looking for someone to stretch the field, but Wallace may not be as fast as he used to be. Fantasy owners should consider him a WR6 who could have some splash plays here or there.

  Ravens | Baltimore in better shape offensively    Mon Jun 27, 01:36 PM

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he believes the offense is in better shape than he was last year because it will be the second year under offensive coordinator Marc Trestman, who will have more control of the offense. Trestman said the main focus for the offense is to cut down on the turnovers in 2016.

Footballguys view: The Trestman offense can produce big fantasy numbers, and the Ravens should be more comfortable with the system in 2016. We feel QB Joe Flacco could outperform his current ADP of QB25 (14.09) in 12-team PPR leagues. Veteran WR Steve Smith is their highest drafted receiver with a current ADP of WR38 (8.07). Keep both players in mind when looking for value in your drafts.

  Ravens | Mike Wallace not as fast    Mon Jun 27, 10:50 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace said he isn't as fast as he was as the slot receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers four years ago, but he thinks he can still get it done. 'I think I've gotten better, even though (the) numbers don't say so,' Wallace said. 'I think I'll get better this year, and I'll show some people I have a lot up my sleeve.'

Footballguys view: Wallace's game is all about speed to get by defenders on "go" routes. If he's not as fast, then he may not be as effective. Of course, he hasn't been a fantasy factor for a few years. Mostly, Wallace has disappointed since he left the Steelers. He was a top-10 fantasy WR with the Steelers, since then his highest ranking is 18th in 2014 when he was with the Dolphins. This season, we can only forecast Wallace as a WR6 for fantasy owners.

  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.

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.
