2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Baltimore Ravens
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Ravens will contend for the playoffs because of an above-average defense. This unit will keep them in plenty of games. The concern is the offense, which lacks some playmakers in the passing game and an elite talent offensively. The offense could be pretty ho hum at times this year, causing the Ravens to lose some games that might normally win. Baltimore should challenge for a playoff spot, though, but don‚??t expect a big run in the playoffs if they happen to get in this year. The Ravens aren‚??t quite as good of a team as past seasons.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
The Ravens hope rookie Breshad Perriman will emerge as the go-to target in the passing game. Perriman should start from day one and serve as the top deep threat for the team, a team that will take shots downfield. Perriman should take over Torrey Smith‚??s role in the passing game, playing a similar style of football. Perriman might have a few erratic games along the way but he has good potential as a heavily targeted receiver in this passing game. It wouldn‚??t surprise to see him crack that 1,000-yard mark as a rookie.
FANTASY DUD
It took some time but Justin Forsett had a breakout season last year. He was one of the most consistent backs in the game and posted big numbers as the starter for the Ravens. The concern is Forsett turns 30 during the season and never topped 620 yards before last year. Can he repeat his huge season last year? The odds sure seem against him, so don‚??t overvalue him come draft day. The Ravens have a couple younger backs that could make a push for playing time if Forsett shows any signs of slowing down.

Team Notes

Jul 30, 05:22 PM Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) suffered a minor knee injury during practice Thursday, July 30, and could miss a day or two of practice.
Jul 30, 12:42 PM Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) said his broken wrist is close to 100% and that he has been cleared to participate in contact drills.
Jul 30, 12:12 PM Baltimore Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 30, because he was not able to pass the conditioning test.
Jul 29, 01:53 AM Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore has bulked up to 275 pounds during the offseason, but has maintained his speed. He is considered the favorite to start. While his strength is blocking, he has good hands, too.
Jul 29, 01:53 AM Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is likely to see another substantial workload, as offensive coordinator Marc Trestman is a big believer in the running game, and the team will maintain the same zone blocking system they had last year under former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.
Jul 24, 05:12 PM Baltimore Ravens CB Terrence Brooks (knee) was officially placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, as expected, Friday, July 24.
Jul 24, 05:12 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was officially placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 24.
Jul 22, 01:22 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro is expected to be pushed by RB Javorius Allen for the No. 2 running back job, but he likely will enter training camp as the favorite for the job because of his experience.
Jul 21, 08:42 AM Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is expected to open the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to sources. This would mean he'll miss at least the first six games. He has rehabilitated the hip to the point where he's able to do some route running and individual drills, but wasn't allowed to fully participate during the Ravens' offseason practices.
Jul 20, 04:22 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore has improved catching the football this offseason. He has shown strong hands and supposedly has hardly let the ball hit the ground.
Jul 16, 12:42 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett averaged 5.4 yards per carry last season and also had 17 rushes of more than 20 yards, which was the most among running backs in both categories.
Jul 12, 09:43 AM Baltimore Ravens WR Marlon Brown worked out four days a week during the offseason and watched more film than in the past. He has impressed wide receivers coach Bobby Engram, 'You really saw Marlon come on strong the last half of last season, and we see the same thing in OTAs and minicamp,' he said. 'He's made a lot of plays, and he understands multiple positions. He's a worker and he's a technician who's learning how to continue to hone his craft.' Head coach John Harbaugh also noted, 'He's just a really gifted player. Like I said, I have high hopes for him. I really want to see him break out.'
Jul 10, 09:43 PM Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said QB Matt Schaub has helped him understand the concepts of offensive coordinator Marc Trestman's system.

Jul 09, 02:43 PM Baltimore Ravens P Sam Koch agreed to a five-year contract extension with the team Thursday, July 9. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Jul 08, 12:23 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore appears to be the most likely candidate to start at tight end this season since he is the closest thing the team has to a two-way tight end.
