2016 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Baltimore Ravens
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Ravens had a rare poor season last year. They really struggled on both sides of the ball, mainly because of some devastating injuries. The team should be better just by staying healthy. But the defense still has some concerns and the running game needs to get going to help the offense click. There are some concerns for this team, making them more of a .500 team than a playoff team.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Mike Wallace has been a dud in recent years but he seems setup for a much better season this year. He moves to an offense that likes to stretch the field. He seems to be a much better fit for the Ravens. Wallace will be the top big-play threat in the offense and get weekly chances to stretch the field. He'll be erratic but likely to post better numbers than past season, giving him a bump in fantasy value.
FANTASY DUD
He had a breakout year last year in a tight-end friendly offense, but Benjamin Watson moves to Baltimore to start this year. A repeat of last season shouldn't be expected. The Ravens will utilize the tight end but not nearly as often as the Saints did last year. Watson will have some good games and post decent numbers but should be erratic along the way. He is going to be more of a spot start or No. 2 for fantasy teams.

Team Notes

Jun 22, 12:13 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West looked quick and fast during organized team activities, according to head coach John Harbaugh, and Harbaugh also praised West's improvements without the ball in his hands. 'Young guys, young running backs, the thing that they always have to learn ? They usually know how to run the ball, and he's proven he can do that,' Harbaugh said. 'The next part of it is the pass protection and the alignments and assignments and lining up outside the box and those kinds of things. I think he's really done a good job with improving on this spring, and I can't wait to see him in training camp.'

Fantasy Impact: West has a lot of competition for playing time, so nothing is certain with him right now.
Jun 21, 02:13 PM Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) doesn't have a problem with running or cutting or doing anything physically in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Flacco's main test is facing the thoughts of getting hit again. 'I don't expect to have those kinds of thoughts linger in my head,' Flacco said. 'But you never know until you get out there and do it again.' Flacco is expected to be ready to go for training camp.
Jun 20, 03:53 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has looked good, is moving well and is still capable of being a significant contributor, in the opinion of The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.

Fantasy Impact: Pitta is a huge health risk but can be a fantasy difference maker if playing, so don't discount him just yet.
Jun 20, 01:33 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson (knee) is a long shot to make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Fantasy Impact: Don't bother with Richardson on your fantasy roster.
Jun 20, 01:03 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West is leaner and more explosive after he worked himself into the best shape of his career. He made some cuts over the past couple of weeks that he probably couldn't last year. If he continues to improve, it'll be hard to cut him.
Jun 17, 07:13 PM Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he plans to work out with some of his teammates over the next month to make sure his arm is strong enough for the work he will receive during training camp. He said he is not worried about his injured knee.
Jun 16, 07:43 PM Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') probably won't play much in the preseason, if at all, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Jun 16, 07:43 PM Baltimore Ravens LBs Terrell Suggs (Achilles') and Elvis Dumervil (foot) are not expected to see much playing time during the preseason, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Jun 16, 07:43 PM Baltimore Ravens LBs Terrell Suggs (Achilles') and Elvis Dumervil (foot) are not expected to see much playing time during the preseason, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Jun 16, 07:13 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson (knee) will likely need arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason for a pre-existing issue. He will miss some time, but the extent of that missed time was not disclosed.

Fantasy Impact: He should be ready for the start of the year but this could hurt his chances to grab a lot of playing time with his new team.
Jun 16, 02:13 PM Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs (Achilles') looks good and is rehabbing at the team's facility, according to head coach John Harbaugh. However, there is no clear timetable for when Suggs will begin practicing.
Jun 16, 02:13 PM Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) is six weeks removed from surgery and is expected to be ready for training camp.
Jun 16, 02:13 PM Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs (Achilles') has a real chance to be ready for the season, but he's unlikely to play in the preseason, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Jun 16, 02:03 PM Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) doesn't have any tentativeness while running and cutting during practices. However, getting hit in the pocket will be an adjustment, since that's how he suffered the injury. Flacco said he feels good enough to play now if he had to.
Jun 16, 12:13 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is not on the field for the final day of mandatory minicamp Thursday, June 16.
Jun 15, 06:23 PM Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil (foot) said recently underwent a foot procedure but should be able to return to action for training camp.
