  Ravens | Mark Andrews not resting on laurels    Mon Jun 17, 10:34 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews looks bigger, faster and stronger, in the opinion of beat writer Jeff Zrebiec. He made a ton of plays the last couple of weeks, according to Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: Andrews was the best rookie tight end for the Ravens in 2018. They selected Hayden Hurst in the first round last year but he was banged up and didn't impress in 12 games with only 13 catches as a rookie. Andrews played in 16 games and snared 34 passes for 552 yards and three touchdowns. We should see a TEBC featuring both Andrews and Hurst for Baltimore's run-heavy offense in 2019.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson may work with QB guru    Thu Jun 13, 05:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson indicated he may work with noted 'quarterback guru' Tom House over the summer and confirmed he will throw to his teammates in either Baltimore or somewhere in Florida in July.

Footballguys view: It sounds like Jackson needs to. The reports from OTAs and minicamp were not kind about Jackson's progression as a passer. He's got time to improve, and it sounds like he'll use his 'off' time to get some more work in. Jackson's rushing ability and the improved playmakers around him could make him produce like a QB1 in some weeks for Fantasy GMs. Jackson is currently going off the board at QB22 (13.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Coach optimistic on Marquise Brown     Thu Jun 13, 12:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) hopefully will be ready for training camp as he recovers from foot surgery, head coach John Harbaugh said Thursday, June 13. Harbaugh added he's optimistic if Brown has no setbacks.

Footballguys view: The plan was always for Brown to be ready by training camp. The surgery Brown had was back in February, so he's on track with no known setbacks. Brown is a playmaker and should quickly become a favorite of QB Lamar Jackson.

  Ravens | Throwing coach for Lamar Jackson?    Thu Jun 13, 12:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson said Thursday, June 13, he might work with throwing coach Tom House before the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: It sounds like Jackson needs to. The reports from OTAs and minicamp were not kind about Jackson's progression as a passer. He's got time to improve, and it sounds like he'll use his 'off' time to get some more work in. Jackson's rushing ability and the improved playmakers around him could make him produce like a QB1 in some weeks for Fantasy GMs. Jackson is currently going off the board at QB22 (13.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Chris Moore a breakout candidate?    Sun Jun 9, 05:47 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Chris Moore is being hailed as a potential breakout candidate in 2019 by owner Steve Bisciotti and head coach John Harbaugh. 'It's up to the player to make the move and do something about it. But I would say Chris is ready to do that and has been ready to do that. He practices really hard, he works hard in the weight room, he knows the offense very well, and he makes spectacular catches out here very often.'

Footballguys view: Moore has been toiling away as a role player, and has also found ways to make an impact on special teams. With first-round pick Marquise Brown and third-round pick Miles Boykin sidelined by injuries, he could distance himself from the youngsters as a starter outside.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown out until camp    Thu Jun 6, 07:59 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) will not participate in practice until training camp.

Footballguys view: That was the plan with the rookie and there's nothing to change that. Brown, the team's 2019 first-round pick, had Lisfranc surgery back in February and was always likely to be ready only when training camp begins. He's on schedule to do that, and there are no known setbacks.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards says role not changing    Thu Jun 6, 07:36 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards said his role in the offense has not changed even though the team added RBs Mark Ingram and Justice Hill this offseason. He said he has been working with the first-team offense during practices.

Footballguys view: That's good and all, but Edwards role has to change once the games count. He's unlikely to beat out Mark Ingram for the top spot in the Ravens backfield. Edwards has fantasy value as a volume runner but without a lot of carries (and in a cramped backfield) there's just not much there for him in 2019 unless someone ahead of him on the depth chart gets hurt.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon back at practice    Thu Jun 6, 05:26 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (undisclosed) 'flashed his lateral movement' during organized team activities Thursday, June 6.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran back here. However, he's still behind Mark Ingram, Justice Hill, and Gus Edwards on the depth chart. We'll see if he can keep flashing his talent in practice and work his way into some role -- if he makes the team -- in 2019.

  Ravens | Miles Boykin gets in limited session    Thu Jun 6, 05:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Miles Boykin (hamstring) was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday, June 6.

Footballguys view: Boykin is a speed demon, so hamstring ailments really impact his game. The rookie from Notre Dame has the size (6'4" 220 pounds) to be at least a red-zone threat in 2019. He could win the No. 2 wide receiver job for the Ravens this season.

  Ravens | Hayden Hurst a no-go on Thursday    Thu Jun 6, 02:30 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (hamstring) was held out of organized team activities Thursday, June 6, for precautionary reasons after tweaking a hamstring, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Hurst has a ton of talent but these injuries are starting to be a concern. He was banged up as a rookie and only played in 12 games, catching just 13 passes for 163 yards and one touchdown. The 2018 first-round pick needs to stay healthy and prove that he's a better option than fellow second-year tight end Mark Andrews.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown agrees to deal    Wed Jun 5, 10:27 AM

Baltimore Ravens first-round pick WR Marquise Brown has agreed to a four-year contract Wednesday, June 5. Financial terms weren't disclosed, and the deal includes an option for a fifth year.

Footballguys view: Brown is one of the most electric players with the rock in his hand. During his college career at Oklahoma, Brown frequently made would-be defenders look silly in the open field with his quickness and speed. That's going to be his role with the Ravens. Brown can become a favorite target of QB Lamar Jackson, especially because he can take any short pass and turn it into a long gain. The rookie is recovering from Lisfranc surgery he had in February but there have been no known setbacks and he should be ready for the start of training camp.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon sidelined    Fri May 31, 09:30 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (undisclosed) has been unable to participate in OTAs this week because of an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: Dixon being banged up is nothing new. There is no word on what this injury is, so it's difficult to speculate how long he's going to be out. Free agent addition Mark Ingram should be the Ravens lead back in 2019. Gus Edwards, rookie Justice Hill and Dixon (when healthy) will compete to establish a pecking order behind Ingram.

  Ravens | Miles Boykin nearing return    Fri May 31, 09:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Miles Boykin (hamstring) is nearing his return from a hamstring injury that has sidelined him during OTAs.

Footballguys view: Good news for the rookie receiver here. Boykin has a ton of speed and could turn into a favorite deep target of QB Lamar Jackson. He's got rare size and length for the position and knows how to track passes downfield and win contested catches. We are very interested in Boykin in dynasty formats.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown on the mend    Fri May 31, 09:22 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) remains on track to return from foot surgery in time for training camp.

Footballguys view: That was the plan all along. Brown had Lisfranc surgery back in February and didn't get to workout in the pre-draft process. When healthy, Brown is an explosive receiver who uses quickness and speed to create his own space before and after the catch. He's the type of big-play weapon who can take short passes and turn them into long gains. We are most certainly watching his progress closely because he could be a main weapon for the Ravens passing game when healthy.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson to stay in pocket?    Thu May 30, 09:35 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson 'is not going to be running 20 times a game' in 2019, according to owner Steve Bisciotti.

Footballguys view: Jackson has to get better at making plays from the pocket. His running ability, incredible in and of itself, has to be more of a complementary weapon to his arm. Jackson should still run plenty in 2019, but the team wants him to stay healthy and to do so the second-year pro must become more nuanced as a passer.

  Ravens | Two BAL WRs ailing    Thu May 30, 12:48 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) and WR Miles Boykin (hamstring) remain out of practice Thursday, May 30.

Footballguys view: Boykin has been out of action with what is being called a minor hamstring injury. The third-round pick from Notre Dame needs to get on the field ASAP because he could end up winning a starting job with the Ravens as a rookie. Brown, the team's first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft, is a big play waiting to happen. He had Lisfranc surgery back in February and has been recovering ever since. The word is that Brown will be ready for training camp.

  Ravens | Gerald McCoy having dinner with coaches, players    Tue May 28, 08:05 PM

Free-agent DT Gerald McCoy (Buccaneers) is having dinner with Baltimore Ravens coaches and players Tuesday, May 28, after meeting with the team. McCoy's visit has been 'great,' according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are making a big push for McCoy. Speculation is that the Browns feel good about their chances, but we'll see if Baltimore has the money and opportunity that McCoy wants.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson struggles with accuracy    Fri May 24, 10:03 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson struggled with his accuracy in organized team activities, and he especially had trouble in the red zone. Jackson showed increased velocity, but several of his passes wobbled through the air. Jackson has impressed with his work in the team's conditioning program this offseason.

Footballguys view: This report doesn't mean Jackson's a bust or anything like that, but we will be following the clues we get out of Ravens camp this year. His elite athleticism gives Jackson QB1 upside for Fantasy GMs but he has to become more of a threat as a passer or defenses will catch up to his one-dimensional game. The ability as a passer is there, the Ravens just have to find a way to bring it out of their young quarterback. He's currently going off the board at QB21 (13.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Antoine Wesley playing well    Thu May 23, 10:48 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Antoine Wesley made 'a handful of nice plays' during OTAs Thursday, May 23, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Wesley left Texas Tech early and was an undrafted free agent for the Ravens this year. He's 6'5" 200 pounds and caught 88 passes for 1,410 yards and nine touchdowns last year for the Red Raiders. He fell undrafted because of concerns about his speed and athleticism. Wesley has great hands, concentration and can win passes 'above the rim.' We'll see if he can make the Ravens practice squad or 53-man roster...so keep an eye on him in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Ravens | Jaylen Smith banged up    Thu May 23, 10:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jaylen Smith (leg) had his leg wrapped and was a limited participant in OTAs Thursday, May 23.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Louisville in 2019, Smith's production fell off without his college quarterback Lamar Jackson....good thing he's reunited with him in Baltimore. Smith is a size/speed prospect with inconsistent production. We'll see if better coaching and catching passes from Jackson again will help. Smith is a player to watch in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Ravens | Michael Floyd gets one-year deal    Sat May 18, 02:25 AM

Updating a previous report, the Baltimore Ravens signed WR Michael Floyd (Redskins) to a one-year contract on Friday, May 17. Financial terms were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: This is Floyd's fifth team in the last four years. We'll see if he can stay healthy and work his way up the depth chart. The Ravens have continued to revamp their WR corps as they look for quality weapons to put around QB Lamar Jackson.

  Ravens | Baltimore playing it safe with Miles Boykin    Fri May 17, 02:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens third-round WR Miles Boykin (hamstring) is expected to be handled cautiously during OTAs next week as he works through a minor hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Boykin was their third-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. During his time at Notre Dame, Boykin used his size and speed to make big plays. He'll need to develop better separation at the pro level, but Boykin can win at the catch point. The Ravens have reworked their WR corps this offseason looking for weapons in the passing game. Boykin could be a favorite target for QB Lamar Jackson when healthy.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown a no-go for OTAs    Fri May 17, 02:02 PM

Baltimore Ravens first-round WR Marquise Brown (foot) will not be on the field for OTAs as he continues his recovery from Lisfranc surgery.

Footballguys view: This was expected when 'Hollywood' Brown was drafted. Brown had surgery back in February and has not suffered any known setbacks in his recovery. He should be ready to go by training camp and could immediately be one of the most dynamic players on the team when healthy.

  Ravens | Michael Floyd joining Ravens    Fri May 17, 10:03 AM

Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Redskins) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Baltimore Ravens Friday, May 17. The deal is pending a physical.

Footballguys view: It's amazing that Floyd keeps getting shots in the NFL. This is his fifth team in four years and Floyd just has 20 catches over the last two seasons. The Ravens don't have a stable wide receiving corps but they do have some young talent that could take over. Floyd might stick as veteran depth in the room, but he's not a lock for the 53-man roster.

  Ravens | Shane Ray headed to Ravens    Fri May 17, 09:24 AM

Free-agent DE Shane Ray (Broncos) agreed to an undisclosed deal, pending a physical, with the Baltimore Ravens Friday, May 17.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick of the Broncos in the 2015 NFL draft, Ray only played one full 16-game season in Denver. When he did, Ray was quite productive with 8.5 sacks. Nagging injuries, including a wrist injury that bothered him for around two seasons, set in with Ray and he was never the same. If healthy, Ray has good burst and a nose for the quarterback. We'll see if a fresh start in Baltimore gets Ray's career back on track.

Free-agent LB Pernell McPhee (Redskins) is a player that the Baltimore Ravens are considering signing.

Footballguys view: McPhee appeared in 13 games last year for Washington, compiling just 11 tackles, one fumble recovery and two passes defensed. A fifth-round pick for the Ravens back in 2011, McPhee was with the team for four seasons. He could come back to Baltimore as a part-time outside linebacker.

Undrafted rookie free-agent WR Joe Horn Jr. (Missouri Western) signed an undisclosed contract with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday, May 14. LB Ejuan Price was released to make room for him on the roster.

Footballguys view: Horn is the son of former Saints star receiver Joe Horn, and he tried out with the Ravens during rookie minicamp. The team liked what they saw and signed him to the 90-man roster. We'll see if Horn can make the Ravens practice squad in 2019.

  Ravens | Joe Horn Jr. making good first impression    Sun May 5, 02:52 AM

Undrafted free-agent WR Joe Horn Jr. - son of the former Pro Bowl wide receiver - is trying out for the Baltimore Ravens during the team's rookie minicamp and has 'looked really good,' according to head coach John Harbaugh.'I guess the thing that struck me about him was he looked like Joe Horn. ... Quick, fast, really good hands, in and out of breaks. You can tell he's worked with his dad a lot on technique. I just thought he looked excellent,' Harbaugh told ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: It's a feel-good story to be sure as Horn Sr. was a fan favorite when he was scoring touchdowns and making cell phone calls from the end zone with the Saints. The truth of the matter is Horn Jr. is likely angling for a spot on the Ravens practice squad. They have added a ton of talent to the WR corps this offseason, and Horn Jr. is no guarantee to make the team.
