2016 Week 1 vs BUF (2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Kamar Aiken is third on the Ravens receiver depth chart and was not a focus of the Ravens game plan. Aiken made his first catch working back to Flacco gaining 16. Aiken's second catch was a quick screen that was quickly diagnosed by the defense. An injury may be the only circumstance that brings Aiken back to fantasy relevance. Pitta working underneath and playing in the slot may be the biggest blow to Aiken's production.

2015 Week 2 vs OAK (7 / 5 / 89 / 0 rec)
Aiken caught the first pass of the game and promptly fumbled as he tried to turn and run. On the next drive, Aiken converted on a key 3rd down to keep the drive moving and was targeted in the end zone on 3rd-and-goal but was unable to come down with the difficult catch. Aiken roasted the defense late in the first quarter and should have had an easy 45-yard touchdown grab. He was 10 yards beyond the nearest defender but Flacco threw an absolute duck that forced Aiken to stop and try to come backwards for the football. Aiken displayed nice wheels as he took a crossing route for a long 38-yard gain in the 4th quarter. Aiken showed off the ability to catch with his hands and made a couple nice grabs extending far away from his body. He has a big catch radius. Overall, it was a strong performance from Aiken despite the early fumble and Aiken looks to have solidified his grasp on the starting #2 WR job.
2015 Week 3 vs CIN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kamar Aiken was barely utilized against the Bengals. He received two deep shots from Flacco but was minimally involved in the offense. Aiken has the talent of a 3rd or 4th receiver and is inadequate as a #2 option for Joe Flacco. Expect Aiken's role to shrink further with the return of Breshad Perriman in the coming weeks.
2015 Week 4 vs PIT (7 / 5 / 77 / 1 rec)
Kamar Aiken made his first catch on a crossing route and slipped a tackle for 14 yards.

Aiken made the biggest play of the game on a leaping 20 yard sideline reception to move the Ravens into position to send the game into overtime. During the first possession of overtime Flacco threw another sideline strike to Aiken who had it knocked out his hands before he could secure the potential big play. Aiken's final catch was a crossing route thrown slightly behind him for a gain of 11.

Aiken showed his strong hands, quickness and toughness in the short passing game so expect Flacco to look his way often.
2015 Week 10 vs JAX (14 / 7 / 73 / 0 rec)
Kamar Aiken dropped his first target over the middle on a slant route. The following play Aiken was targeted again but was not on the same page as Flacco.

It was announced as a knee sprain and Aiken returned to the field. Aiken caught another slant against off coverage for 9 yards on 3rd and 7. Aiken was peppered with targets but was inefficient. However with his hands and the trust of Flacco Aiken should continue to make plays on short and intermediate routes.

Kamar Aiken had a 10 yard reception negated by an offensive pass interference penalty. Aiken made his first catch on slant from Flacco in front of Janoris Jenkins for 6 yards.

2015 Week 14 vs SEA (7 / 5 / 90 / 0 rec)
Kamar Aiken is the only wide receiver left on this roster that began the seasons with the team. He was surprisingly effective in Week 14 setting a season high in yards with 90. He had five catches on seven targets and set up the Ravens second field goal to end the first half with two big catches of 37 and 21 yards on back to back plays. The Ravens offense was shut out in the second half but Clausen was able to hook up with Aiken on a few jump balls. He was the Ravens only consistent threat to move the football down the field all game.
2015 Week 15 vs KC (12 / 8 / 128 / 1 rec)
Aiken was a bright spot for a Ravens team that was playing from behind much of the day on Sunday, as he hauled in eight of his team-high 12 targets for 128 yards ñ which included a long touchdown as time expired in the first half. Facing 3rd and 10 from the Chiefs 48-yard line, Jimmy Clausen would connect with Aiken for a 48-yard score to close the gap to 24-14. The Ravens would continue to air it out in the second half, but two Clausen interceptions helped to seal the victory away for the Chiefs. There is no word on Week 16's starting quarterback at this time, but Aiken remains the top receiving option regardless of who is at the helm.

2015 Week 17 vs CIN (13 / 5 / 76 / 0 rec)

Aiken again beat Kirkpatrick on a curl route and turned up field for 13 yards.
2014 Week 14 vs MIA (7 / 6 / 65 / 1 rec)
Kamar Aiken has been a consistent receiver for Flacco all season. Aiken is always where he is supposed to be, catches the ball very well, and has good speed to beat coverage deep.
