  • J.K. Dobbins Close To Returning?

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins "is pushing" to get back on the field and will probably be the next player activated from the PUP list, head coach John Harbaugh told Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. The team is expected to re-evaluate his status on Monday. Dobbins is recovering from an ACL tear and other damage, but it appears that he is nearing a return to the field and should be ready for Week 1. As a rookie in 2020, he registered 805 rushing yards, 120 receiving yards, and nine touchdowns. He sports an ADP of 64 and should be viewed as a mid-range RB2 this coming season.

  • Mark Andrews Not Suiting Up Against Titans

    Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews won't play during the exhibition against Tennessee. With the veteran expected to be Lamar Jackson's No. 1 receiving option, John Harbaugh may continue to play it safe throughout the preseason. Charlie Kolar (hernia) will also be out, so Nick Boyle, Josh Oliver, Isaiah Likely, and Tony Poljan may all get some snaps on Thursday.

  • Lamar Jackson Won't Play In Preseason Opener

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson won't play during the preseason opener on Thursday against the Titans. This isn't a surprise, primarily since the 2019 NFL MVP may not get any reps until closer to Week 1. Even then, Jackson isn't a lock to see the field throughout the preseason. The 25-year-old has bulked since the end of last season. He has also demonstrated added "zip" to his throws in camp, so he has top-five fantasy upside at the position heading into the 2022-23 campaign. Regarding the exhibition versus Tennessee, Tyler Huntley, Brett Hundley, and Anthony Brown are listed behind Jackson on the depth chart, so there's a chance all of them will receive some snaps.

  • Devin Duvernay Returns To Practice

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Devin Duvernay (thigh) returned to practice on Saturday at training camp after missing the last five days with a thigh bruise. He's currently listed as the starting receiver alongside Rashod Bateman on Baltimore's depth chart. Duvernay should have added opportunities in the passing game in 2022 with Marquise Brown now in Arizona, but third-year receiver James Proche II has been lights-out in training camp and will also be competing for targets behind No. 1 Bateman. The 24-year-old caught 33 of his 47 targets for 272 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games (seven starts) in his second NFL season, but despite the bigger role in this run-first offense, he should be left to the waiver wire in standard 12-team leagues to open the year.

  • Tyler Linderbaum Likely Out A Few Weeks

    Baltimore Ravens first-round rookie center Tyler Linderbaum (foot) was injured in Friday's training camp practice and had an MRI exam that didn't show any real concerns. However, head coach John Harbaugh said that Linderbaum will likely be out for a week or two, which probably means he won't play in next Thursday's preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans. Centers Patrick Mekari, Trystan Colon and Jimmy Murray will get more playing time in training camp at the position until Linderbaum returns to action. The 22-year-old could return for the team's second preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals on Aug. 21.

  • James Proche II Playing Lights-Out In Training Camp

    Baltimore Ravens third-year wide receiver James Proche II has been standing out at training camp this summer. He's made a few plays in just about every practice so far and he's working pretty much every area of the field. Proche's precise route-running has made him a nightmare to cover on one-on-one drills. The former sixth-rounder in 2020 had a good camp last year as well, but his performance this summer is reassuring for a team that traded No. 1 receiver Marquise Brown this offseason. The 25-year-old is arriving early and staying late, and he's seeing more chances with Devin Duvernay (thigh) sidelined. Proche was targeted just 20 times in 14 games last year while catching 16 of them for 202 yards. If he's healthy, there's no reason why he shouldn't see more chances in 2022.

  • Ravens DL Calais Campbell Hints At Retirement After 2022

    After flirting with the idea of retirement late last season, Ravens defensive lineman Calais Campbell decided to return for a 15th season back in April. This season, the 35-year-old didn’t wait for the end of the year to start up the retirement talk once again, according to Nick Shook of NFL Network.  “I know I’ve […]

  • Rashod Bateman Dealing With Minor Injury

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman is dealing with an undisclosed minor injury at training camp, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Bateman missed Friday's practice, but Harbaugh said the 22-year-old probably could have practiced. He might sit out for another day or two, but fantasy managers shouldn't be concerned at all. With Marquise Brown now in Arizona, Bateman will be Baltimore's No. 1 receiver in 2022. The former first-rounder had 46 catches on 68 targets for 515 yards and one touchdown in 12 games (four starts) in his rookie season, but he should take a step up in Year 2 while hopefully becoming more of a downfield option for quarterback Lamar Jackson. Bateman should be considered a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 with upside in fantasy drafts.

  • Justice Hill Building Momentum

    Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill, a third-year running back trying to secure a job in training camp, has quietly built momentum. He is looking quick and is showing no signs of the Achilles tear that kept him off the field all of last season. Hill has also caught some passes out of the backfield, showcasing his athleticism. It's worth noting with both J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee) trying to return from torn ACLs that kept them out in 2021. Edwards is behind Dobbins and may not be ready for the start of the regular season, which could give Hill an opportunity, especially if Dobbins is limited. Hill isn't a player that you need to be drafting in standard-sized leagues, but he's a name to keep an eye on in this backfield early on.

  • Ravens Agree With Rookie David Ojabo

    The Baltimore Ravens agreed to terms with Michigan rookie outside linebacker David Ojabo (Achilles) on his four-year rookie deal on Tuesday, ending his training camp holdout. The Ravens weren't exactly in a rush to sign Ojabo, who tore his Achilles at a pro-day workout earlier this year. Baltimore expects the second-rounder to return at some point this season, but that could be a stretch. The 22-year-old played under Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald in college, so he should fit in with the team's defensive scheme when he's healthy. If not for his Achilles injury earlier this year, Ojabo would've likely come off the board in the first round of the draft.

  • Gus Edwards Could Miss "Chunk Of Time"

    Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to training camp, leaving question marks about his status for Week 1. When providing an update about the Ravens backfield, Jamison Hensley of ESPN described teammate J.K. Dobbins (knee) as expected to be ready for Week 1 but Edwards as further behind in his recovery, noting he could miss a "chunk of time" to start the season. Edwards already finds himself in a difficult situation, competing for carries with Dobbins in an offense that does not typically pass to their running backs. Additionally, they recently brought in veteran running back Mike Davis and drafted sixth-round rookie Tyler Badie. It continues to look like Edwards will not be ready for the start of the season, and he may need to earn back his role when he returns if Davis or Badie are productive while he is sidelined.

  • Devin Duvernay Suffers Thigh Bruise

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Devin Duvernay (thigh) reportedly suffered a thigh bruise, but it is not believed to be a major concern. Head coach John Harbaugh described it as "nothing serious," stating, "He could have come back; I just said, No, not tonight." Duvernay and fellow receivers James Proche II and Tylan Wallace are expected to compete for the No. 2 receiver role behind Rashod Bateman. While tight end Mark Andrews will lead the way followed by Bateman, there will be plenty of opportunity available for Duvernay if he can earn the role, which would make him an intriguing late-round target in fantasy drafts.

  • Broncos, Ravens DE Wolfe announces retirement

    After 10 seasons in the NFL, defensive end Derek Wolfe has announced his retirement. He spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Broncos and the final two with the Ravens.

  • Lamar Jackson's Throws Have More Zip On Them

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson bulked up in the offseason, and it has shown on his throws so far in training camp. He has thrown the ball with more velocity and had tighter spirals. Jackson was 12-for-17 (70.5%) on his passes in team drills on Thursday, including a 55-yard touchdown pass to rookie Isaiah Likely. "He's strong and he looks great," head coach John Harbaugh said. Jackson also worked on cleaning up his throwing mechanics in the offseason, so that likely has played a big part as well. The 25-year-old disappointed in 2021 due to a late-season injury, but he's determined to bounce back for fantasy managers as a top-five signal-caller.

  • Charlie Kolar To Undergo Hernia Surgery

    Baltimore Ravens tight end Charlie Kolar (hernia) will undergo sports hernia surgery "early next week," according to head coach John Harbaugh. He is expected to miss significant time. Kolar was selected with the 128th pick of the 2022 NFL Draft after compiling 168 catches for 2,181 yards and 23 touchdowns at Iowa State. Unquestionably, the rookie has plenty of talent. However, with Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman predicted to see most of Lamar Jackson's throws in 2022-23, Kolar wasn't forecasted to contribute much on the fantasy end.

  • J.K. Dobbins Pleading His Case To Practice

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) appeared on several occasions to be trying to convince team officials to green light him to return to practice at training camp on Wednesday. He was seen having animated conversations with general manager Eric DeCosta, team president Sashi Brown and outside linebacker Justin Houston. Head coach John Harbaugh said Dobbins has made it clear he thinks he's ready to practice, but "that's up to the doctors." The 23-year-old began camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list after missing all of last year. Although his knee injury was more serious than Gus Edwards', it looks like Dobbins is on track to return before his backfield mate. Both RBs are questionable for Week 1 at this point, but Dobbins is expected to be the primary back in Baltimore's run-first offense once he's healthy.

  • Lamar Jackson Having Mutual Conversation With Ravens

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is practicing at training camp despite not having reached a long-term contract extension with the team. Jackson told reporters on Thursday that "we're having a mutual conversation" and "we're keeping it in house." The 25-year-old signal-caller doesn't have an agent, but head coach John Harbaugh said, "both sides are motivated to get the job done." Earlier in the year, the Ravens took the stance that they were waiting for Jackson to seriously approach them about a new deal. "I just want to win at the end of the day. I just want to be great." Jackson is motivated to be great again after a disappointing 2021 season that ended with him on the sidelined due to injury. With better health, he should bounce back as a top-five fantasy QB.

  • Lamar Jackson Practicing Despite Contract Situation

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson practiced with the team on Wednesday at training camp, and teammates said there was no indication that his contract was on his mind. Jackson is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and his base salary of $23 million is guaranteed in 2022, but he has no guarantees beyond this year. An injury at practice could reduce his future earning potential. If Jackson plays out this year on his rookie deal, he'd be a free agent next March, but the Ravens would presumably use the franchise tag on him. His presence on the field this week indicates he's willing to play this year without a new deal. Contract issues aside, the 25-year-old should be considered a top-five fantasy QB despite disappointing in 2021 due to an injury late in the year.

  • Gus Edwards Considered Questionable For Week 1

    Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (knee), who is on the Physically Unable to Perform list to begin training camp, is considered questionable for Week 1 against the New York Jets. Fellow running back J.K. Dobbins (knee), whose ACL tear was accompanied by further damage, is also on the PUP, so the big storyline this summer will be whether veteran Mike Davis will have to open the season as the team's lead back. When the Ravens entire backfield is healthy, Edwards figures to be the No. 2 behind Dobbins as a power runner between the tackles. The 27-year-old has had over 700 rushing yards in each of his three NFL seasons, but his lack of pass-catching chops limits his fantasy upside.

  • Wayne Gallman Not Expected To Join Ravens

    Free-agent running back Wayne Gallman had a workout with the Baltimore Ravens on Monday. The organization also had Corey Clement workout for the team. They eventually decided to sign Clement to a deal. He's expected to serve as depth in the crowded Ravens backfield. The fact that the Ravens signed Clement means that they will likely won't pursue Gallman. The 27-year-old had a limited role in the Atlanta Falcons backfield last season. Before that, Gallman saw success with the New York Giants during the 2020 campaign. Possibly, Gallman gets a chance with another organization before the season begins. Regardless, it's unlikely that Gallman or Clement will make an impact in fantasy football.

  • Ravens Sign Corey Clement

    With Baltimore Ravens running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee) opening training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, the team signed free-agent running back Corey Clement to an undisclosed deal, according to a source. Before signing Clement, the Ravens also worked out veteran Wayne Gallman on Monday. Clement will provide another body for the running back room in camp behind Mike Davis, rookie Tyler Badie, Justice Hill and Nate McCrary. The 27-year-old spent the 2021 season with the Dallas Cowboys, carrying the ball 33 times for 140 yards and catching six of seven targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in 17 games (zero starts). It would be a big surprise if Clement ends up with a big role in Baltimore in 2022.

  • Ravens Restructure CB Marlon Humphrey's Contract

    The Ravens entered today with the least cap space in the league, so a move to generate some financial wiggle room was likely necessary at some point. To that end, the team has re-worked cornerback Marlon Humphrey‘s deal, reports ESPN’s Field Yates (Twitter link).  The Ravens are converting $8.965MM – almost the entirety of Humphrey’s scheduled $10MM […]

  • Ravens Reinstate Devon Williams

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Devon Williams was reinstated on Friday, only a few days after landing on the reserve/did not report list. Williams was signed as an undrafted free agent this offseason after compiling 35 catches for 557 yards and four touchdowns at Oregon in 2021. With the lack of established options on the receiving end for the Ravens, at least outside of Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman, Williams has a chance to carve out a role for the team in 2022-23. However, he'll need to scratch and claw for a spot on the depth chart.
