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

Aug 31, 02:23 PM Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) is not participating in practice Monday, Aug. 31.
Aug 31, 12:02 PM Baltimore Ravens WR DeAndre Carter, WR Aldrick Robinson and WR Trent Steelman were cut Monday, Aug. 31.
Aug 30, 08:02 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Javorius Allen fumbled the ball before crossing the goal line in his first game replacing RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (knee) as the backup running back against the Washington Redskins in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 29. 'You have to hold on to the football,' head coach Jim Harbaugh said. 'It's just not possible to put runners out there that fumble the football. He's going to have other opportunities and chances going forward, and I really believe he's going to be a very good player. But, he's going to have to learn from that.'

Aug 28, 04:32 PM Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe (forearm) and OG Kelechi Osemele (Achilles') are not expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, since neither participated in practice this week.

Aug 27, 02:02 PM Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) has no timetable for his return, according to head coach John Harbaugh. His recovery has been slower than expected.
Aug 26, 12:13 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta's (hip) status is unknown as to whether he will play this season, according to QB Joe Flacco.
Aug 26, 11:13 AM Baltimore Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (hamstring) is unlikely to play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees said that Webb's status is absolutely a concern.

Aug 22, 09:22 PM Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco finished 3-of-7 for 23 yards and two interceptions in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Impact: Don't panic just yet but keep an eye on Flacco the rest of the preseason. He has a lot of new receivers to work with on offense, which is a bit of a concern.
Aug 21, 09:22 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams has made far fewer plays in the passing game than TE Nick Boyle during training camp.
