Baltimore Ravens LBs Terrell Suggs (Achilles') and Elvis Dumervil (foot) are expected to be sidelined against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 27. They did not practice Thursday, Aug. 25.

  Ravens | Two Baltimore receivers won't play    Thu Aug 25, 04:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) are not expected to play Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Detroit Lions. They did not practice Thursday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: No sense in rushing either one back before Week 1. We see Smith as a solid WR5, as it is unlikely he gets back into the groove he was in before his injury last season. Having missed a whole season, Perriman is a bit behind and so we see him as no more than a WR7, if that.

  Ravens | Baltimore set for committee backfield?    Wed Aug 24, 01:23 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is still in line to be the starting running back, in the opinion of ESPN's Jamison Hensley, but RBs Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon project to share third-down work with RB Terrance West serving as a short-yardage back in the red zone.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman does solo work    Tue Aug 23, 11:12 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) participated in individual drills Tuesday, Aug. 23, which was expected.

Footballguys view: Perriman missed all of last year due to a knee injury and is basically a rookie again this year. He's missed all of training camp so far with a partially-torn ACL he suffered in June. We're not expecting much from him early in the season, but if he's healthy then perhaps he could make some plays later in the year.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman may play Saturday    Mon Aug 22, 08:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) has not been ruled out for the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 27. Head coach John Harbaugh said he wants Perriman to play if he is cleared to play.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta has broken finger    Mon Aug 22, 12:20 PM

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) is sidelined due to a broken finger, and there is concern that he could need a screw inserted if he returns before it heals.

Footballguys view: Another injury for Pitta. He's trying to come back from major hip problems, and now this finger issue will set him back a bit. The Ravens have a cluster of talented TEs with Ben Watson and second-year pro Maxx Williams leading the depth chart. Even if Pitta is healthy, we don't feel the veteran will make a fantasy impact in 2016.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman activated    Mon Aug 22, 12:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Perriman missed all of his rookie season last year, and he suffered a partially-torn ACL back in June and has not been able to participate in training camp because of it. He's not yet cleared to fully participate in practice, and it seems like Perriman is no lock to contribute early in the season. We hope he gets healthy and we can see him flash towards the midway point of the year.

  Ravens | Matt Elam needs surgery    Mon Aug 22, 11:55 AM

Baltimore Ravens FS Matt Elam (knee) requires surgery to clean out his knee, which he injured in the second preseason game. The surgery will not be a season-ending operation.

  Ravens | Elvis Dumervil returns    Mon Aug 22, 09:38 AM

Baltimore Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil (foot) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 22, and returned to practice.

Footballguys view: Foot surgery from earlier this offseason has kept Dumervil from practicing to this point. We don't think the Ravens need to rush the veteran pass-rusher out there at any time during the rest of the preseason. However, we should see Dumervil ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco expected to play vs. Detroit    Sun Aug 21, 12:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) has missed the first two preseason games but is expected to play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: All signs point to Flacco being ready to go for the season opener against the short-handed Bills defense. He should be a good streamer with the likely high volume of passes in Marc Trestman offense.

  Ravens | Kamar Aiken gets into the end zone    Sun Aug 21, 01:19 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken cashed in his only reception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Indianapolis Colts for a 14-yard touchdown.

Footballguys view: Aiken's role is shrinking with Mike Wallace coming on and Steve Smith returning to the lineup, but the high volume nature of this offense still makes him worth a later pick in PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Ryan Mallett keeps foot on the gas    Sun Aug 21, 01:19 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Ryan Mallett completed six of his eight pass attempts for 47 yards and a touchdown in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Indianapolis Colts. He did nothing to hurt his status as the primary backup to QB Joe Flacco.

  Ravens | Lardarius Webb looks good    Sun Aug 21, 01:18 AM

Baltimore Ravens S Lardarius Webb is trying to win the starting safety job opposite S Eric Weddle, and he looked like a good fit in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: Webb was once a shutdown corner, but injuries and age have taken that edge away. His ball skills and instincts could make him an excellent partner for Weddle in the back of the defense.

  Ravens | Terrance West leaves game briefly    Sat Aug 20, 10:17 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West (finger) left the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts in the first half due to a jammed finger, but he was able to return later.

Footballguys view: West had been generating a lot of momentum earlier in camp and the preseason, but Week 2 wasn't a tremendous success for him. The Ravens backfield is one of the murkiest in the league, and West is probably the third priority in PPR leagues, if not fourth with rookie Kenneth Dixon healthy.

  Ravens | Kamar Aiken's numbers could suffer    Fri Aug 19, 12:49 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken had 25 catches for 333 yards in eight games with WR Steve Smith last year, and Aiken had 50 catches for 611 yards in the eight games Smith missed.

Footballguys view: Aiken was a good sleeper going at least 3-4 rounds after his high level of production in the second half of 2015, but Smith's return greatly caps his upside unless Smith suffers a setback or is a shadow of himself. He's dropping on our draft radar.

  Ravens | Steve Smith activated    Wed Aug 17, 02:04 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Aug. 17, and likely will participate in practice Monday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: We are so happy that Smith didn't retire. He may not be the player he used to be, but Smith has made a career of proving people wrong. We expect him to help move the chains for the Ravens passing game and see him as a WR5 for fantasy owners in 2016.

  Ravens | Mike Wallace endearing himself    Wed Aug 17, 09:53 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace has caught fade routes in the end zone, tough catches on back-shoulder throws and has been a frequent target on underneath routes in camp. He has been a reliable target as far as hands go. 'I think he is going to be a really big hit for us,' QB Joe Flacco said. 'We all know he can run. But just the way he runs his routes and how good is he at the top of it and coming back to you, and how sure his hands have been. I don't know if I've seen him drop a pass.'

Footballguys view: The Ravens were excited enough about Wallace to spend 4.5 million guaranteed dollars to land him. Breshad Perriman's continued knee issues could open the door for Wallace to be a boom/bust WR3/Flex and DFS option in a high volume pass offense. He's currently going in the 15th round or later.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman return date unknown    Tue Aug 16, 06:35 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) still hasn't returned from a nagging knee injury, and head coach John Harbaugh still has no update on the second-year receiver. Harbaugh has previously said that Perriman should be ready for Week 1, but he still hasn't been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Perriman missed all of his rookie season due to a PCL injury. In June, the second-year pro was diagnosed with a partially-torn ACL and his timetable for return was unknown. Not much has changed since then as we're still waiting on Perriman to get back on the field. Dynasty owners should still be intrigued by his upside, but there's little here for re-draft owners in 2016.

  Ravens | Kaelin Clay reverts to IR    Tue Aug 16, 05:48 PM

  Ravens | Joe Flacco not at full health    Tue Aug 16, 03:45 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) said his surgically repaired knee isn't fully recovered yet, but he did say the knee feels great and he has not missed any practice. Flacco doesn't know if he'll be playing in the Ravens' second preseason game this weekend.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Flacco is coming back from a major knee injury, and there's no need to trot him out there for some preseason action. Instead, the team needs to stay concentrated on having him ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Ravens | Chris Moore returns    Tue Aug 16, 11:37 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Chris Moore (leg) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Moore could play a big role by the end of the season if Breshad Perriman's knee still isn't right and Mike Wallace looks like a player in the winter of his career. Moore started training camp well, so we will be watching to see if he can generate more buzz in the preseason.

  Ravens | Terrell Suggs returns    Mon Aug 15, 09:43 AM

Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list and is practicing Monday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: The Ravens need pass rush punch from Suggs and Elvis Dumervil if their defense is going to work this year. Dumervil is still on the PUP/ankle with a foot/ankle issue. Suggs is coming back from his second torn achilles. He tore the left one last year, and the right one in 2012.

  Ravens | Keenan Reynolds struggling    Fri Aug 12, 04:53 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Keenan Reynolds has been dropping passes and punts on a daily basis during training camp and likely will need a strong preseason to make the 53-man roster.

Footballguys view: Reynolds, a converted QB from Navy, is a fine athlete but he's learning how to play WR and needs to be more consistent.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon performing well    Fri Aug 12, 04:49 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon has produced explosive plays in the running and passing game during training camp but is still behind RBs Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and Terrance West on the depth chart.

Footballguys view: Dixon is an exciting rookie RB because of his quickness and explosiveness. He's in the mix on the depth chart, and he may not be able to overtake Forsett as the lead back. Forsett is the starter, but make sure to keep Dixon on the waiver wire speed dial (or add him as a late-round pick) if you invest in Baltimore's backfield.

  Ravens | Terrance West scores a pair     Thu Aug 11, 11:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West ran nine times for 25 yards and two touchdowns and added one catch for seven yards in a 22-19 win over the Carolina Panthers in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: West got the short yardage work and was effective, but didn't blow us away. He was, however, working with backups so getting stuffed a few times at the line isn't a crisis. Reports out of camp have suggested West could be the best back on the team, so while we aren't drafting him as more than a late-flier or handcuff for Justin Forsett, he's worth keeping an eye on.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon runs well Thursday    Thu Aug 11, 11:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon had nine carries for a team-high 44 yards in a 22-19 win over the Carolina Panthers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Dixon was part of a rotation with Terrence West (who was the goal-line back) and Buck Allen and looked the best of the three. This is still Justin Forsett's backfield, but keep an eye on Dixon, as there is value in the backup here, given Forsett's age. We currently have Dixon as an RB5 but that could change with more nights like Thursday.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett looks great    Tue Aug 9, 01:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett looks like he did during his 2014 breakout campaign, according to Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. 'I see the same running back we had two years ago, in terms of his speed, his explosiveness, his vision,' Harbaugh said. 'He really looks good. I know there's a lot of talk about the other guys, but he's playing really well.'

Footballguys view: Message! Forsett's current ADP of RB34 (8.01 in 12-team PPR) is too low, but if he keeps impressing in camp we predict it will rise. In 2014, Forsett finished as a top-10 fantasy RB in standard-scoring leagues. Last year, a broken forearm held him to just 10 appearances. Savvy fantasy owners can scoop up Forsett and perhaps get RB2 value. The Ravens offense should look more cohesive with QB Joe Flacco healthy, plus the team is in year two with OC Marc Trestman.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams exits    Mon Aug 8, 11:21 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams (undisclosed) left practice Monday, Aug. 8, with an apparent injury.

Footballguys view: And then there was one. Ben Watson is the last healthy tight end of the Ravens top four. Wide receiver convert Darren Waller should get a lot of practice snaps at his new position.

  Ravens | Four Ravens out    Mon Aug 8, 09:31 AM

Baltimore Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley (undisclosed), WR Michael Campanaro (undisclosed), WR Chris Matthews (undisclosed) and WR Chris Moore (leg) are out of practice Monday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: Moore was building momentum as a deep threat with Mike Wallace getting in the mix and Breshad Perriman still out, but that has come to a halt with his leg injury. This Ravens offense could have a revolving door of top RB and WR options as players get healthier and younger players start to come on as the season progresses.

  Ravens | Two Ravens TEs sit    Mon Aug 8, 09:30 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (finger) and TE Crockett Gillmore (hamstring) are out of practice Monday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: Ben Watson has the starting job held down right now, and 2015 second-rounder Maxx Williams has also had a good summer so far. The Ravens have four good receiving tight ends, but the chances of them all being healthy at the same time seem low.

  Ravens | Ronnie Stanley left practice Saturday    Sun Aug 7, 11:48 AM

Baltimore Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley (undisclosed) left practice early Saturday, Aug. 6, because of a soft tissue injury but considers it a minor setback.

Footballguys view: Eugene Monroe's retirement left the Ravens with a large hole at left tackle. Stanley is plan A, so hopefully he can stay on the field as he gets ready to ramp up his level of competition.

  Ravens | Kamalei Correa overwhelmed?     Sat Aug 6, 10:17 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Kamalei Correa was listed as the backup to weakside linebacker Zach Orr on the first depth chart released Friday, Aug. 5, and defensive coordinator Dean Pees said they may be preventing Correa from becoming comfortable by asking him to play too many positions.

Footballguys view: Correa has been getting under the skin of his teammates in a good way in camp, but he has been learning multiple positions, so Pees isn't offbase here. Correa still projects as a long-term starter, and one who can provide versatility to a defense that has aging outside linebackers and one unproven inside linebacker position.

  Ravens | Competition helping Maxx Williams     Sat Aug 6, 08:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams has looked healthier and stronger during training camp this year, according to beat writer Mike Preston, and Preston believes the added competition from TE Dennis Pitta and TE Benjamin Watson is making Williams a better player.

Footballguys view: Williams probably won't have fantasy relevance this year, but his improvement is making him poised to take over the Ravens tight end position in the future. He's definitely still worth the stash in dynasty leagues even though he isn't on the redraft radar.

  Ravens | Victor Ochi applying pressure    Fri Aug 5, 09:50 PM

Baltimore Ravens DL Victor Ochi was called 'explosive' by head coach John Harbaugh, and Ochi has impressed Harbaugh with his ability to rush the quarterback.

Footballguys view: The undrafted rookie was highly productive on a small school level at Stony Brook. He has an outside chance to make the team at a position that is manned by two veterans who are getting to the autumns of their careers.

  Ravens | Kamalei Correa works with first-team    Fri Aug 5, 09:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Kamalei Correa has been working with the first-team defense during training camp.

  Ravens | Justin Tucker boasts strong leg    Thu Aug 4, 01:32 PM

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker claims he could hit a field goal of more than 84 yards in the ideal conditions. 'We think about these things really specifically, if you send me out there you have a reason for it -- because they think I can make a kick,' Tucker said Thursday, Aug. 4, on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. 'To me it doesn't matter where I just have to hit a good ball. If conditions are prime -- like last season, we opened up in Denver, the weather was warm and the field was nice, you're up in altitude so the ball just carries and in pregame I hit the cross bar from 85. So if the situation is just prime, maybe 84 and a half yards.'

Footballguys view: Because you need to know everything. We already think highly of Tucker. In so far as kickers are concerned, he's less odd than most. That said, this is a mighty claim, and if he can hit it from anywhere, at any time, he can be a help in leagues that reward you for distance on field goals.
