  • John Harbaugh Defends Run-Heavy Approach

    Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Wednesday that he's "not apologizing" for quarterback Lamar Jackson's style of play or the team's run-first approach on offense. Baltimore scored just three points in the Divisional Round loss to the Bills, and offensive coordinator Greg Roman received criticism for what looked like a simplistic passing attack. The Ravens finished last in the NFL in passing for the first time since 2003. Harbaugh points out that they finished seventh in scoring in 2020, averaging 29.3 points per game. While Baltimore doesn't air the football out like other teams, they've also led the league in rushing each of the last two years, and Jackson has been a big part of that. Despite his limitations as a passer, Jackson remains a high-end QB1 for fantasy managers entering the 2021 season. Running back J.K. Dobbins will only see his stock rise as well in one of the NFL's most run-heavy offenses heading into his second season.

  • Ravens To Release Mark Ingram II

    The Baltimore Ravens will release veteran running back Mark Ingram II on Tuesday, according to league sources. The move will save the Ravens $5 million against the 2021 salary cap and will allow Ingram to get an early jump on free agency. Ingram was a healthy scratch in five of the team's final six games to close out the season, but he insists that he's healthy and has plenty to offer a team in 2021. The 31-year-old was a first-round pick out of Alabama back in 2011, but he's unlikely to be anything more than a backup if he lands with another team on the open market this offseason. J.K. Dobbins took over as Baltimore's lead back in the second half of the 2020 season, and Gus Edwards should continue spelling him next season. Ingram, a three-time Pro Bowler, had 72 carries for 299 yards (4.2 yards per attempt) and two touchdowns in 11 games (nine starts) in his second year in Baltimore.

  • Ravens Waive Robert Griffin III

    The Baltimore Ravens waived quarterback Robert Griffin III, defensive back Davontae Harris, wide receiver De'Anthony Harris and defensive back Tramon Williams on Monday. Griffin played in four games in his third season with the Ravens and made a start in place of Lamar Jackson after he contracted COVID-19 in the Week 12 loss to the Steelers. RG3 went just 7-for-12 for 33 yards and an interception in that start, also running the ball seven times for an additional 20 yards. The No. 2 overall pick might've played in his last NFL game, but he could also return to the Ravens if he goes unclaimed on waiver. The 30-year-old started just two games in three years for Baltimore and declined after he was named a Pro Bowler in his rookie season with Washington.

  • Lamar Jackson Ruled Out With Concussion

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is in the concussion protocol and will not return to Saturday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Buffalo Bills. Jackson went down hard in the second half and stayed on the ground for a few moments before exiting. The Bills currently lead 17-3 and Tyler Huntley is in at quarterback for Baltimore. Barring a stunning comeback, Jackson's season will end on Saturday. He finishes this game 14-for-24 for 162 yards and an interception with nine carries for 34 yards.

  • Ravens Expected To Explore Extension For Lamar Jackson

    The Baltimore Ravens are expected to explore a long-term contract extension for quarterback Lamar Jackson in the offseason. The Ravens are always open to early deals that make sense for both sides. The 2019 NFL MVP has one year left on his current deal and the Ravens will pick up his fifth-year option. Jackson still represents himself in contract negotiations, but perhaps he'll hire some representation to help him with his first big contract after his rookie deal. The 24-year-old wasn't as prolific as a passer or as a rusher in 2020, but his dual-threat ability under center still made him a high-end fantasy QB1. Jackson threw for just 2,757 yards with 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions this year, rushing the ball 159 times for 1,005 yards and seven touchdowns. He's had back-to-back seasons with 1,000 rushing yards and will once again be a top-five QB in fantasy drafts this fall.

  • Mark Ingram II Won't Play In Divisional Round

    Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram II will be a healthy scratch once again on Saturday when the Ravens face the Bills. No surprise here, as the Ravens seem intent on moving on from Ingram when the season ends and don't want a potential injury to complicate that. Barring a J.K. Dobbins injury, we won't see Ingram in a Ravens uniform again.

  • Mark Andrews Has Great Divisional Matchup

    Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews will look to make a big impact on Saturday night when the Ravens face the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional Round. While Andrews has been on a downwards swing over the past few games, he gets a matchup against a Bills Defense that allows the eighth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends. If you're playing a Saturday-only DFS slate, Andrews is the top tight end play, while DFS managers playing in the Saturday/Sunday slate could find value by using Andrews over the more obvious choice, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

  • Marquise Brown Looks To Continue Momentum

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown opened the postseason with seven catches for 109 yards against the Titans, his first 100-yard game since Week 1. And while expecting him to hit that mark again against Buffalo on Saturday might be a stretch, Brown has been playing strong football in the second half of the season. Since Week 12, he has six receiving touchdowns and should see six or more targets on Saturday. The Bills Defense has been better against the pass than against the run, but Brown should find himself well-positioned for success due to his role as Lamar Jackson's top receiver, with the threat of the run game helping to open up passing lanes.

  • J.K. Dobbins A Strong Fantasy Option Against Bills

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins saw his carries drop into single digits last week for the first time since Week 10, but the rookie rusher should be considered a top RB play in DFS contests for Saturday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo's run defense has proven to have some holes in it, as they allowed the 13th-most fantasy points to the position during the regular season. Gus Edwards could siphon off some work, but Dobbins is clearly the running back to play in this backfield this week because of his upside.

  • Lamar Jackson A Strong Divisional Round Play

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is averaging 94.3 rushing yards per game over his past six appearances. Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills allowed seven rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks this season, tied for the third-most in the NFL. Saturday's Divisional Round contest between the two teams is shaping up to be a strong opportunity for Jackson to post big numbers on the ground. Buffalo has been good at forcing turnovers, so Baltimore's best game plan might be to keep the ball on the ground as much as possible. Consider Jackson a top DFS play.

  • Marcus Peters, Matt Judon Remain Out Wednesday

    Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters (back) and linebacker Matt Judon (illness) remain out of practice on Wednesday for the second straight day. Both players will need to get in at least a limited practice on Thursday to have a shot at suiting up for the Divisional Round matchup against the Bills on Saturday night. Baltimore's defense will need all the healthy bodies they can get against a Bills offense that has taken off in 2020 in quarterback Josh Allen's breakout season. The Ravens blitzed the most in the NFL this year, while Allen was the most successful signal-caller against pressure, so something has to give this weekend. We'd temper expectations for Baltimore's defense in the Divisional Round, especially if Peters and/or Judon cannot play.

  • Ravens Defense Will Bring Pressure Against Bills

    The Baltimore Ravens Defense doesn't plan to change their blitz-heavy approach against Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen in the Divisional Round matchup this Saturday night. Allen was among the best QBs at handling pressure in 2020, with the Ravens having blitzed an NFL-high 41 percent of the time this season. Allen has thrown a league-leading 19 touchdowns against pressure this year. The 24-year-old signal-caller was named to his first Pro Bowl after becoming the first QB to surpass 4,500 yards passing, 35 passing TDs and five rushing touchdowns in a single season. Allen was held to his second-lowest completion rate of his career (43.6 percent) on 17-for-39 passing and was sacked six times in a loss to Baltimore in 2019, and the Ravens D is hoping to do something similar this weekend. Allen will have a challenge against the Ravens, but his athleticism, improved accuracy and decision-making and dual-threat ability with his arm and legs will continue to make him a popular DFS choice in the postseason.

  • Lamar Jackson Could Play In First Snow Game Against Buffalo

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is wary of potentially playing in his first ever snow game in the Divisional Round on Saturday against the Buffalo Bills. "Saturday would be my first time playing football in the snow, if it does. Hopefully, it don't," Jackson said. As of Tuesday, there's a 40 percent chance for snow showers in Buffalo on Saturday night. The reigning MVP wore a glove on his left hand in the second half of the wild-card win over the Titans because he jammed his thumb, and he could stick with it in snowy conditions this weekend. Snowy conditions won't make Jackson particularly intriguing for fantasy managers, but it might mean that he runs the ball more often after rushing for 136 yards and a touchdown against Tennessee. Already a run-first offense, Baltimore could stick with the ground game even more against Buffalo.

  • Matt Judon, Marcus Peters Miss Practice Tuesday

    Baltimore Ravens pass-rusher Matt Judon (illness) and cornerback Marcus Peters (back) both were unable to participate in Tuesday's walk-through practice. The Ravens are likely just being cautious and holding Judon and Peters back early in the week ahead of the Divisional Round matchup against the Bills on Saturday. Peters had four solo tackles and has picked off passes in each of the last two weeks. They'll certainly need him to help slow down Bills quarterback Josh Allen and No. 1 wideout Stefon Diggs. Judon, a Pro Bowler each of the last two seasons, had 50 combined tackles, 21 QB hits and six sacks in 14 games this season. Baltimore's defense has been strong all year and could surprise against a high-flying Bills offense, especially with a chance for inclement weather in Buffalo this weekend.

  • Mark Andrews Stays Involved Against Titans

    Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews had four catches for 41 yards during the postseason win over the Titans on wild-card Sunday. While Andrews' workload lined up with what we've seen out of him throughout the year, his lack of volume has diminished his fantasy value, largely thanks to the team's commitment to getting things done on the ground. Nonetheless, the 25-year-old remains one of the best options in the league at the position, even if his fantasy success hinges on whether or not he finds the end zone in any given contest. Andrews will be a solid fantasy option not named Travis Kelce in the Divisional Round.

  • Marquise Brown Leads The Way In Win

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown racked up 109 yards off seven catches during the win over Tennessee on Sunday. Hollywood had arguably his best outing of the year, and though he didn't score a touchdown like he has in five of his previous six outings, he recorded over 100 receiving yards for the first time since Week 1. Despite Lamar Jackson throwing less than 200 yards in six of his last seven games, Brown remains one of the select few to get looks. Fantasy managers should keep him in mind for the Ravens' next postseason matchup, although he remains a semi-risky option due to the team's commitment to the run from week-to-week.

  • Gus Edwards Remains Involved In Win

    Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards finished with eight carries for 38 yards during the win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Despite getting a carry less than J.K. Dobbins, the rookie was more efficient between the two by racking up 43 yards and a touchdown. With Lamar Jackson and Dobbins working as the team's featured backs, Edwards has been relegated to an afterthought. While the upside is still there, he will be a risky option in any fantasy contest in the Ravens' next postseason matchup.

  • J.K. Dobbins Extends Scoring Streak

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins recorded 43 yards and a touchdown off nine touches during the postseason win over the Titans on Sunday. He also caught a pass for negative yardage. With the Ravens once again turning to the run, the rookie capitalized by recording his seventh-straight game with at least one trip to the end zone. Though Gus Edwards and Lamar Jackson, who combined for 24 carries on the afternoon, are still in the picture, Dobbins has significant upside moving ahead, especially when inside the red zone.

  • Lamar Jackson Records First Postseason Win

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson finished with 179 yards and an interception off 17-for-24 passing during the win over the Titans on Sunday. He also added 16 carries for 136 yards and a touchdown. Once again, the 24-year-old didn't do much throwing but managed to pick up his first postseason win by making some noise utilizing the run. With at least double-digit touches in each of Jackson's previous four contests, you can bet he will continue to be heavily involved in the Ravens' next postseason matchup.

  • Willie Snead IV Active For Wild-Card Game

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Willie Snead IV (ankle) is active for the wild-card playoff game against the Titans on Sunday. Cornerback Marlon Humphrey (shoulder), defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) and cornerback Jimmy Smith (ribs, shoulder) are also active, giving Baltimore's defense a boost against the NFL's leading rusher in Derrick Henry. Snead got in two limited practices this week and was expected to suit up, where he'll serve as the No. 3 receiver behind Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin. When you factor in tight end Mark Andrews, Snead is the fourth option for quarterback Lamar Jackson in a run-heavy offense. The 28-year-old has a low fantasy ceiling after catching 33 of 48 targets for 432 yards and three touchdowns in his 13 games in 2020. The Ravens Defense is healthy, but they are more of a fade in DFS against a strong Titans offense.

  • Mark Ingram II A Healthy Scratch Again

    Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram II is a healthy inactive yet again for the wild-card playoff game against the Titans on Sunday. Joining him on the inactive list are punter Johnny Townsend, wide receivers Chris Moore and James Proche II, outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson, offensive lineman R.J. Prince and defensive tackle Broderick Washington. Ingram saw some action in the Week 17 regular season finale against the Bengals -- nine carries for 39 yards -- but he hadn't played prior to that all the way back in Week 14 against the Browns. Rookie J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards have leapfrogged the veteran back on the depth chart, and Justice Hill is now serving as the No. 3 ahead of Ingram. Dobbins is the back you want to roster on Sunday in the wild-card matchup against Tennessee.
