  • Ravens Were Willing To Extend S Chuck Clark In 2022

    Headshot for Chuck Clark

    Things changed significantly for the Ravens at the safety position during the 2022 offseason. One of the results of their moves made on the backend was veteran Chuck Clark being traded at the start of the 2023 league year. Clark, a 2017 sixth-round pick, established himself as a full-time starter midway through the 2019 season, and […]

  • Kyle Hamilton Expected To Play Bigger Role In 2023

    Baltimore Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton earned the top grade among safeties in the NFL in his rookie season last year, according to Pro Football Focus. Hamilton spent more time in the slot and near the line of scrimmage than in a traditional safety location, though, and he also didn't see significant starting snaps until later in the season. With the Ravens trading Chuck Clark to the New York Jets this offseason, Hamilton will occupy safety more as it's traditionally defined in his sophomore season. The former first-rounder is excited about the expanded role. "I feel like I can slide into that role for sure and perform at a high level," Hamilton said. "I feel like that's what the Ravens drafted me for and that's what I'm here for, and I feel like I can definitely produce."

  • Devin Duvernay Practicing In Limited Capacity

    Headshot for Devin Duvernay

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Devin Duvernay (foot) has practiced in a limited capacity at organized team activities. "Duv has been out there working hard, and he's kind of building stamina back up and everything," commented head coach John Harbaugh. "He's doing a good job." The 25-year-old suffered a broken metatarsal in his foot during practice at the end of the season and underwent surgery as a result. He finished the 2022-23 campaign with career-highs in catches (37), receiving yards (407), and touchdowns (four). That said, even if Bateman is ready to roll for Week 1, his impact as a positional asset for fantasy managers will likely be capped. However, he's undoubtedly a difference-maker as a return man.

  • Rashod Bateman "Right On Schedule"

    Headshot for Rashod Bateman

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman (foot) has participated in OTAs, albeit in a limited capacity. The 23-year-old was limited to six games last season, but his year ended abruptly after he underwent Lisfranc surgery in November. Fortunately, head coach John Harbaugh provided a positive update, reporting the wideout is "right on schedule" regarding his rehab efforts. There is still a way to go before the 2023-24 campaign starts, so nobody knows for sure if he'll be ready for Week 1. However, things will be different for Bateman this season once he returns to the field, especially with the Ravens bolstering the receiving corps during the offseason by adding Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Zay Flowers. As a result, he may not be as productive for fantasy managers.

  • Lamar Jackson Expects To Run Less In 2023

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson talked quite a bit with the media on Wednesday at organized team activities about throwing more and running less in 2023 in offensive coordinator Todd Monken's new offensive scheme. Monken already hinted at the same thing earlier this offseason, and it makes sense given that Jackson has missed important games down the stretch in each of the last two seasons due to lower-body injuries. The 26-year-old signed a five-year, $260 million contract extension just before this year's NFL draft and will remain in Baltimore for the foreseeable future, where his elite dual-threat playmaking abilities will keep him as a top-five fantasy QB, even if he has fewer designed runs.

  • Ravens Sign Angelo Blackson

    The Baltimore Ravens signed veteran free-agent defensive tackle Angelo Blackson to an undisclosed deal on Wednesday. Blackson played in 32 games (12 starts) for the Chicago Bears over the last two years and recorded 65 tackles (34 solo), 2.5 sacks, four tackles for loss, 10 QB hits, one interception and three passes defensed. The 6-foot-4, 315-pounder will turn 31 years old this November. He was originally a fourth-round pick by the Tennessee Titans in 2015 out of Auburn, and Blackson has racked up 166 tackles (98 solo), 8.5 sacks, 15 tackles for loss, 27 QB hits, one interception, eight passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in eight NFL seasons. Blackson will likely be depth for the interior of Baltimore's defensive line in 2023.

  • Lamar Jackson Reports To Day 2 Of OTAs

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has reported to Day 2 of organized team activities on Tuesday after he did not attend the first day on Monday, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. With the Ravens implementing a new offensive scheme this year under offensive coordinator Todd Monken, it's a great sign that Jackson is present in order to get to work with the rest of his teammates. Right before this year's NFL draft, Baltimore and Jackson worked out a five-year contract extension worth $260 million ($185 million guaranteed) to make him the league's highest-paid player. The 26-year-old dual-threat QB might not have as many designed runs in this new offense, but he's still one of the most dynamic signal-callers in the league and should definitely be considered a top-five fantasy QB heading into 2023.

  • Rashod Bateman Practicing This Week

    Headshot for Rashod Bateman

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman (foot) joined the team on Monday for the first practice of organized team activities. He will likely be eased back in training camp this summer, but it's a good sign that he's already back on the field learning the new offense under offensive coordinator Todd Monken. The third-year wideout has made steady progress since Lisfranc foot surgery last November ended his 2022 season after only six games. The 23-year-old averaged 19.0 yards per catch last year on 15 receptions for 285 yards and two touchdowns. The former first-rounder has had his issues with injuries, but Bateman has shown big-play potential when healthy. The Ravens have a few more capable receivers around him in 2023, but Bateman still figures to be quarterback Lamar Jackson's top target.

  • Lamar Jackson Expected To Take Part In OTAs This Week

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson didn't attend the team's first of 10 organized team activity practices on Monday, but the Ravens are expecting him to be there for practices this week, according to multiple reports. The practices are voluntary until mandatory minicamp next month, but the team is also implementing a new offensive scheme under offensive coordinator Todd Monken. Jackson recently signed a five-year, $260 million contract extension that includes $185 million guaranteed, making him the league's highest-paid player. Baltimore has given Jackson more playmakers at the receiver position as well, so the Ravens aren't expected to be as reliant on the run in 2023. Despite injury concerns, the 26-year-old dual-threat signal-caller is an elite fantasy option at his position.

  • Josh Johnson Returns To Ravens

    Headshot for Josh Johnson

    Free-agent quarterback Josh Johnson, who has played for an NFL-record 14 teams, has signed with the Baltimore Ravens on Monday for the third time in his career, according to a source. Johnson was with the Ravens in 2016, 2021 and now again in 2023. The 37-year-old journeyman entered the NFC Championship game for the San Francisco 49ers against the Philadelphia Eagles when Brock Purdy injured his elbow, but Johnson was also forced to leave early with a concussion. In 10 NFL seasons, Johnson has completed 58 percent of his pass attempts for 2,280 yards, 13 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 39 games (nine starts). He figures to be the third-stringer in Baltimore behind Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley.

  • David Ojabo Past His Achilles Injury

    Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker David Ojabo (Achilles) is fully healthy and is determined to make the impact that he couldn't during his rookie season after suffering a torn Achilles last March at Michigan's Pro Day. Ojabo saw significant action in just one game, the regular season finale, in 2022. His upper body is noticeably bigger this offseason, and he said he gained "a solid five to 10 pounds of muscle." "Honestly I'm tired of hearing about it," Ojabo said. "It's in my past, I've grown from it. It's made me stronger. I'm ready to move on from it. I'm 110%. I honestly feel better. I feel more explosive. I'm excited." The 23-year-old could have been a first-rounder if not for his injury, and he should have every opportunity to earn a big role for the Ravens D in 2023.

  • Devin Duvernay Resumes Running

    Headshot for Devin Duvernay

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Devin Duvernay (foot) said he is back running after having foot surgery late last year and likes where he's at physically at this point in the offseason. Duvernay had surgery to fix a broken fifth metatarsal in his foot, but he's currently on track to be ready to go for training camp at the end of July. The 25-year-old wideout has been most valuable to Baltimore for his return skills on special teams, although he set career-highs in catches (37), targets (49), receiving yards (407) and touchdowns (three) in 14 games (13 starts) last year. The Ravens should have a more potent passing attack in 2023, but Duvernay will also have more competition for targets after the team added Odell Beckham Jr. in free agency and first-rounder Zay Flowers in the draft.

  • Ravens Hope To Use Lamar Jackson Less In Rushing Game

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Todd Monken was asked if quarterback Lamar Jackson could see his rushing usage come down in 2023. "The more talented you are around your quarterback, the less he has to take on that burden," Monken said. "As Lamar gets older, you want to take some of that (rushing) off the player, but he has a unique trait. You can't take that completely out of his toolbox because that's a huge weapon for him and for us." That said, Jackson will still likely see plenty of designed runs, but the team hopes its weapons including Mark Andrews, Rashod Bateman, Odell Beckham Jr., and Zay Flowers will raise the passing ceiling of the offense and preserve Jackson's legs as he enters his sixth NFL season.

  • Zay Flowers Thinks Offense Fits Him Well

    Headshot for Zay Flowers

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers, who was a first-round pick in this year's draft, thinks he will be a heavy contributor in Year 1 and said the offense "fits my style perfectly." The Ravens also took a look at Flowers as a punt returner during rookie minicamp over the weekend. Head coach John Harbaugh said the team will "absolutely" consider him as a returner on special teams in his rookie season. "I feel like I'm a complete receiver. I can do it all," Flowers said. "You name it, I'll be able to do it. I honestly don't have a preference, because I feel like I can run every route on the outside, and I can run every route on the inside." The 22-year-old should have a big role right away, but fantasy managers should be wary of overspending in redraft leagues given the Ravens' failure with young receivers in the past.

  • John Harbaugh Doesn't Rule Out Marcus Peters Return

    Headshot for Marcus Peters

    Free-agent cornerback Marcus Peters remains without a team after Baltimore chose not to re-sign him. However, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh didn't rule out bringing back the veteran, telling Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic, "you don't close the door on good players and good people." Peters landed in Baltimore in 2019 after the Rams traded him. He appeared in 37 games for the Ravens, totaling 138 tackles and eight interceptions. But unfortunately, he also missed time over the years due to injury. That said, the acquisition of Rock Ya-Sin seemed to crush any hope of Peters returning to the team, although that doesn't appear to be the case based on Harbaugh's comments.

  • Rock Ya-Sin Signs With Baltimore

    Headshot for Marlon Humphrey

    Free-agent cornerback Rock Ya-Sin agreed to a one-year deal with the Ravens on Wednesday. The terms weren't disclosed, but he could earn up to $6 million. The 27-year-old appeared in 11 games for the Raiders in 2022-23, totaling 45 tackles and seven passes defensed. Unfortunately, his year ended prematurely after suffering a knee injury in Week 13. With the Ravens opting not to re-sign Marcus Peters, Ya-Sin is expected to start opposite Marlon Humphrey during the 2023-24 campaign. Baltimore allowed 232.2 passing yards per game last season, so the team hopes the addition will improve things in that area.
