  • Rashod Bateman Receives Praise From Teammate

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman had a decent rookie year, finishing with 46 catches for 515 yards and one touchdown. However, that was with Marquise Brown on the roster. But after Hollywood was dealt to the Arizona Cardinals during the 2022 NFL Draft, Bateman is now projected to be the team's No. 1 wideout on the depth chart. He clearly can make some noise from a fantasy standpoint, with tight end Mark Andrews recently taking the time to praise the speedster due to his speed and ability to run routes. With Baltimore looking to utilize the passing attack more often this season, Bateman is someone to watch, although his outlook won't be as bright if Lamar Jackson doesn't return to MVP form.

  • Marcus Peters Could Be Ready By Week 1

    Baltimore Ravens three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters (knee) tore his ACL in a Sept. 9 practice and missed the entire 2021 season, but as long as he continues to progress, he should be back at some point over the summer, which would give him a chance to play in Week 1. Peters' focus isn't on being on the field for the start of training camp at the end of July, and the Ravens won't be rushing him back after the first major injury of his career. The goal will be to have Peters on the field in September. The 29-year-old has been working hard in his rehab and spent considerable time rehabbing at the team's facility in recent weeks. Getting Peters back on the field will be a huge boost to a Ravens secondary that was decimated by injuries in 2021.

  • J.K. Dobbins Unlikely To Play In Preseason

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee), who tore the ACL in his left knee in the final preseason game last fall, is highly unlikely to play in the preseason this year. There have been reports that Dobbins also sustained LCL damage to his knee, although the Ravens have only confirmed the torn ACL. The 23-year-old was mostly a bystander during organized team activities, although he did catch some balls from the Jugs machine. There has been outside pessimism about Dobbins' availability and effectiveness in 2022, but the Ravens say he's on track and expect him to be a factor. The most logical expectation is for him to start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Dobbins will be an extremely risky RB2/3 selection for fantasy managers coming off his serious knee injury.

  • Tyus Bowser Expected To Be Ready For Training Camp

    Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Tyus Bowser (Achilles) tore his Achilles in the Jan. 9 regular season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but head coach John Harbaugh thinks he'll be back for training camp next month. "I think Tyus will be back for the start of the season. I think Tyus will be back for training camp. That's my prediction. That's my timeline, so I'm going to stick with that," Harbaugh said back on Jan. 31. Bowser showed up for the start of the offseason program without a boot on his foot or an obvious limp, but he's still only about 5 1/2 months removed from surgery, and the timetable for Achilles returns has been anywhere from nine to 12 months. But other players have returned much earlier, and Bowser has a chance to be ready by Week 1. It would be huge for Baltimore's D, as Bowser is one of the best athletes on the team.

  • Isaiah Likely Has Impressed This Offseason

    Baltimore Ravens fourth-round rookie tight end Isaiah Likely has impressed this offseason with his ability to get open and his large catch radius. "Watch out for this guy," safety Tony Jefferson said. "He's going to be really good." Likely caught several touchdown passes during red-zone drills as the star of the final day of mandatory minicamp. Quarterback Lamar Jackson said "the sky's the limit" for Likely. The 22-year-old from Coastal Carolina was extremely productive in college, and he finished 2021 with 59 catches for 912 yards and 12 touchdowns, but he's a little small and slow at his position by NFL standards. Mark Andrews is the clear No. 1 pass-catching tight end for Baltimore, but Likely is one to keep an eye on as he competes with Josh Oliver and fellow rookie Charlie Kolar this summer.

  • Lamar Jackson Bulks Up

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson confirmed that he added 12 to 15 pounds of muscle mass this offseason. He said he usually played at between 205 and 208 pounds, but he's now at 220 pounds. "I just wanted to do it. See how I look, see how I feel," Jackson said. "And I feel good." The 25-year-old has been training hard in the offseason, and the ball was leaving his hand in a different way with more zip on his passes when he reported to mandatory minicamp. Jackson also worked with 3DQB throwing mechanics coach/trainer Adam Dedeaux this offseason. He finished last year on a disappointing note when he missed the final four games of the year due to an ankle injury, but Jackson is motivated to rebound and he has the talent to finish as a high-end QB1.

  • Devin Duvernay Has Opportunity For A Bigger Role

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Devin Duvernay has a chance to earn a bigger role this year after the team decided to trade Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals. Rashod Bateman is now the team's presumed No. 1 pass-catcher, and Duvernay is on a mission to win a starting job once training camp begins next month. Duvernay made the Pro Bowl as a kick returner last year and improved as a receiver with 33 catches for 272 yards and two touchdowns. The 24-year-old will have a big opportunity, especially if they don't add a veteran wideout before camp after they didn't draft a receiver. Duvernay is strong after the catch and is one of the fastest players in the NFL, so he can make noise with the ball in his hands. He could replace Brown as the Ravens primary deep threat, but in this run-first offense, it's going to be hard to trust any receiver in Baltimore's offense on a weekly basis for consistent production in fantasy.

  • Jaylon Ferguson Dies At 26

    Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson has died at just 26 years old. "It's with great sadness that we announce the passing of Baltimore Ravens LB Jaylon Ferguson. The family asks for your prayers and privacy during this trying time," Safarrah Lawson said in a statement. Ferguson was a third-round selection by the Ravens in 2019 out of Louisiana Tech, and he had recorded 67 tackles (44 solo), 13 tackles for loss, 17 QB hits, 4.5 sacks, two passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 38 games (10 starts) in his three NFL seasons with Baltimore. RotoBaller offers its condolences to Ferguson's family and friends at this difficult time.
