2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Baltimore Ravens
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Ravens had a really down year last season but still barely missed the playoffs, finishing at .500. They are better than that, though. The defense should perform better after a down year and the offense got a few more weapons this offense that should help. Baltimore has plenty of talent on the roster and a rebound should be expected. They have been a mainstay in the playoffs before last season. We still aren't sure they are a Super Bowl team once again but at least a playoff contender.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Running back Bernard Pierce battled nagging injuries much of last season and never looked fully healthy most of the season, which led to down numbers for him. He is healthy now, though, and should be in the mix for plenty of work with Ray Rice slipping last season. Pierce could overtake Rice at some point. Either way, Pierce is going to get work in at least a timeshare at running back. He showed what he can do his rookie season, so expect much better production from him this year now that he is healthy.
FANTASY DUD
As mentioned, running back Ray Rice was a mess last season. And he had an offseason to forget this year. Things are just trending the wrong way for him. He also had a ton of work early in his career, which could be impacting him. Rice might do better than last season but that isn't saying much. He is a back seeing his fantasy value go the wrong way. His best days are behind him.

Team Notes

Oct 23, 05:22 PM Baltimore Ravens DE Chris Canty (wrist) and LB Daryl Smith (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23. OT Eugene Monroe (knee) and OG Kelechi Osemele (knee) practiced in full.
Oct 23, 05:22 PM Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23.
Oct 23, 02:02 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Oct 20, 08:53 AM Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels was targeted by QB Joe Flacco nine times Sunday, Oct. 19, and caught six balls for 58 yards and a touchdown in Week 7. Daniels is second on the team with 27 catches, 275 yards and three touchdowns. 'He makes catches in traffic,' Flacco said. 'He obviously has held onto the ball a lot of times while getting hit by two guys, even one in the end zone. So, yes, I have a lot of confidence throwing to him.'

Fantasy Impact: Daniels has been a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end since entering the starting lineup. He has produced.
Oct 19, 12:52 PM Baltimore Ravens OT James Hurst will start at left tackle in Week 8 in place of OT Eugene Monroe (knee). OG John Urschel will start at left guard in place of OG Kelechi Osemele (knee).

Oct 17, 02:42 PM Baltimore Ravens DE Chris Canty (wrist) and DT Christo Bilukidi (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and have been ruled out for Week 7. OG Kelechi Osemele (knee) and OT Eugene Monroe (knee) did not practice and are listed as doubtful. WR Kamar Aiken (concussion), WR Marlon Brown (pelvis), DT Timmy Jernigan (knee) and LB Daryl Smith (non-injury) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.
Oct 17, 02:32 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for Week 7.
Oct 16, 05:02 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Oct 16, 01:42 PM Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe (knee) looked like he made progress in practice Thursday, Oct. 16. It is not clear if Monroe will be ready to play, but Monroe was moving well in practice.
Oct 16, 09:53 AM Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett has thrust himself into the lead running back role for the team. He is fourth in the NFL with 408 rushing yards and leads the league with 6.4 yards per carry. The team still wants to use RB Bernard Pierce as an important part of their running game.

Fantasy Impact: Forsett is a solid No. 2 fantasy back right now. He is getting plenty of total yards.
