  Ravens | Justin Forsett almost 100%    Thu Jan 28, 10:30 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (forearm) said he should be 100% in 'a couple of weeks.'

Footballguys view: Forsettt should be the lead back for the Ravens once again. However, he's going to have to prove that he can be durable enough for a sizable role like he was in 2014. Forsett only played in 10 games in 2015 and had just two 100-yard games.

  Ravens | Kamar Aiken should return to Baltimore    Tue Jan 26, 05:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Kamar Aiken is expected to be re-signed this offseason, according to Clifton Brown of CSNMidAtlantic.com.

Footballguys view: This has to be an easy call for the WR-starved Ravens. Steve Smith is returning in 2016, and Breshad Perriman is going to be back after missing his entire rookie season in 2015. That makes Aiken the favorite for the team's WR3 going forward.

  Ravens | Baltimore wants to add receiver    Thu Jan 21, 06:04 PM

Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken, Breshad Perriman and others may have more company next season. General manager Ozzie Newsome said the Ravens have to add depth at wide receiver this offseason, whether it be through the NFL Draft or through free agency.

Footballguys view: With Joe Flacco saying he'll re-work his contract to help the team, we assume free agency is a primary focus. That's only good for an offense which is depending on an aging star like Smith to carry its weight.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco's rehab going well    Thu Jan 21, 12:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is six weeks removed from surgery to fix two torn knee ligaments, and he said his rehab is 'going really well.' He's confident that he'll be fully recovered by the start of the regular season in September. 'I'm coming along great,' Flacco said. 'I don't think there is any way I'm not going out there ready to go right away. Don't quote me. But that's just me. I have no timetable. I'm really taking it day by day and getting better and better each week.'

Footballguys view: We expect him to be fine next year, and likely a solid low-end QB1, high end QB2 option.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco willing to restructure    Thu Jan 21, 12:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he's motivated to restructure his contract this offseason in order to help the team gain extra salary cap space for free agency. Flacco's cap number moves to $28.55 million in 2016, which ranks third in the NFL. He'll make $18 million next year even if he doesn't agree to restructure.

Footballguys view: He knows the team needs help, and it's a positive sign that something will get moving sooner than later that he's talking about it.

  Ravens | Kamar Aiken has coming out season    Mon Jan 18, 03:22 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken finished the 2015 season with 75 catches for 944 yards and five touchdowns. They were all career-highs.

Footballguys view: Aiken stepped up after Steve Smith went out and was a consistent number one in an offense that was operating with backup quarterbacks down the stretch. He should play a big role in the offense next year and provide an obstacle for the younger receivers on the depth chart.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco has big cap hit    Fri Jan 8, 08:11 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is scheduled to count $28.55 million against the salary cap in 2016. General manager Ozzie Newsome said he believes the team may not have to restructure Flacco's contract this offseason in order to fill the roster.

Footballguys view: Flacco has a huge number, and the team will happily pay his number. The Ravens should bounce back in a huge way next season.

  Ravens | Steve Smith likely back for camp    Thu Jan 7, 02:28 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is expected to be ready for training camp, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: One more time for Smith, who was on fire before his injury. He may not be quite the same player coming off an Achilles injury but it's a boost for the offense heading into 2016.

  Ravens | Steve Smith expected to be ready    Thu Jan 7, 02:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is expected to be ready for training camp this summer, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman should be ready    Thu Jan 7, 02:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is expected to be fully recovered and ready to begin the next season on time, doctors told him.

Footballguys view: We think Steve Smith will return as well, so with him and Perriman around the offense should bounce back nicely in 2016.

  Ravens | Terrell Suggs wants to come back    Thu Jan 7, 02:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs (Achilles') said he wants to come back for another season in 2016.

  Ravens | Still no timetable for Dennis Pitta    Wed Jan 6, 08:14 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said there still is no timetable on whether he will be able to play football again. The Ravens may consider releasing Pitta at some point this pffseason since he has a $6.6 million salary cap figure for 2016.

  Ravens | Steve Smith out of walking boot    Tue Jan 5, 01:30 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') shed his walking boot Monday, Jan. 4, after eight weeks, and he said he has more four more weeks of rest before he can start to move around. 'I won't be ahead of schedule. If anything, to be safe, I'll be behind schedule. With an injury like this, you don't want to be ahead of schedule. That takes away a lot of stuff.'

Footballguys view: We're so happy that Smith chose not to retire and he will return for the 2016 season. He'll be eased back into action this offseason, but there's a chance he could be ready to go for the start of training camp.

  Ravens | Chuck Jacobs signed to Reserve/Futures contract    Mon Jan 4, 04:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Chuck Jacobs was signed to a Reserve/Futures contract Monday, Jan. 4.

Footballguys view: Undrafted in 2013 out of Utah State, Jacobs is a smaller/electric receiver who thrives off run-after-the-catch ability. We'll see if he can make an impact as a return man or receiver for the Ravens in the offseason.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams closes year strong    Sun Jan 3, 07:51 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams set career highs in catches, targets and yards in a 24-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17, catching six of his 10 targets for 53 yards.

Footballguys view: Williams was pressed into duty by injuries, but he showed requisite toughness in extended playing time. He'll be a sleeper in drafts this summer.

  Ravens | Kamar Aiken could set franchise record    Wed Dec 30, 03:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken needs five catches to pass Derrick Mason for the most consecutive five-catch games in one season for the Ravens. Mason had eight such games in 2007.

Footballguys view: Expect Aiken to hit that mark. Next year, with the return of Steve Smith, his role will change. However, Aiken has gotten a ton of valuable experience this year as the team's top target.

  Ravens | Steve Smith coming back in 2016    Wed Dec 30, 12:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith announced on his Twitter account Wednesday, Dec. 30, that he will officially return to the Ravens in 2016. Smith previously had announced before the season that he would retire.

Footballguys view: Woo hoo! You don't have to be a Ravens fan to appreciate what Smith brings to the field. It was sad to see him go down with a season-ending injury knowing that he planned to retire. Now, he's going to come back for one more season. This year was a wash for the Ravens, but getting Smith back will help greatly in 2016.

Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen carried 18 times for 79 yards and a touchdown and had five catches for 35 yards in a 20-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Allen bounced back after a fumble problem last week and greatly rewarded anyone who took a chance on him. He'll be a flex play against Cincinnati next week.

Baltimore Ravens QB Ryan Mallett won his team debut, completing 28 of his 41 passes for 274 yards and a touchdown in a 20-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Mallett threw with better touch and anticipation than he had at Houston, and obviously had a very auspicious start to his Ravens career. He'll have another chance to stake a claim to a long-term backup role against Cincinnati next week.

  Ravens | Javorius Allen benched in Week 15    Mon Dec 21, 06:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen was benched during the team's Week 15 game after he fumbled the ball in the first quarter of the game. It was his second fumble in his last seven touches. Head coach John Harbaugh said Allen's benching likely will not carry over to the Week 16 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Allen has to take care of the rock if he wants to continue as the team's lead back. With Allen benched, the Ravens turned to Terrance West as their primary back. West only had 35 yards rushing on seven carries against the Chiefs in Week 15.

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 21. Free-agent LB Chris Carter (Bengals) was signed in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Gillmore will be an interesting prospect in deeper leagues next year, but he should be facing a much improved Maxx Williams in 2016. Williams is set to be the lead TE eventually for the Ravens, but Gillmore may be too good to play a small role.

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken caught eight passes for 128 yards, including a 48-yard touchdown pass, in a 34-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Aiken's touchdown came on a poorly defended hail mary at the end of the first half. He'll be a high ceiling WR3/Flex against the Steelers next week.

  Ravens | Jimmy Clausen delivers mixed numbers    Sun Dec 20, 06:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Jimmy Clausen was 26 of 45 for a career-high 281 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. One of those interceptions was a pick-six, which sealed the Kansas City Chiefs' 34-14 win.

Footballguys view: Clausen continues to look like he belongs in the NFL at least as a competent backup. He had a few throws he would want back in the second half, but he kept a very undermanned Ravens offense somewhat viable through the air. He'll face the Steelers next week unless Matt Schaub is ready to go.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is hopeful to return to the NFL next season, provided that he is healthy enough to do so, according to multiple sources who have maintained regular contact with him. He is no longer using a walking boot and has resorted to hydrotherapy in order to minimize atrophy.

  Ravens | Baltimore non-committal on QB    Fri Dec 18, 04:51 PM

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he isn't naming a starting quarterback for Week 15 against the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Dec. 18, even though QB Matt Schaub (chest) is listed as probable. QB Jimmy Clausen is another option to start against the Chiefs. Clausen took at least half of practice repetitions both Wednesday, Dec. 16, and Thursday, Dec. 17, according to offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. Harbaugh said Schaub has a chance to be 100% healthy by Sunday, Dec. 20. It's highly unlikely that QB Ryan Mallett will see playing time Sunday after being signed this week.

Footballguys view: Schaub is the better starter for both the Ravens passing game options and the Chiefs D/ST fantasy prospects. We'll be watching this one Sunday morning to help break some ties on close calls.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (chest) put in a full practice Thursday, Dec. 17, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Footballguys view: Put your helmet back down Jimmy Clausen, Schaub might be back! It doesn't make much of a difference for fantasy GMs though as we would avoid both of them as no better than a QB3 this week against a tough Kansas City defense.
