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

Apr 29, 03:23 PM Baltimore Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley will compete with OT Eugene Monroe for the starting left tackle job during training camp, according to offensive line coach Juan Castillo.
Apr 29, 01:03 PM Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe (shoulder) is unlikely to be cut after the team drafted OT Ronnie Stanley in the first round. The team could opt to start Stanley at guard, and Monroe's injury is a factor as well.
Apr 29, 11:23 AM Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) will have screws removed from his surgically repaired right foot this week and will be out four to six weeks. He could miss spring workouts.
Apr 26, 02:13 PM Ohio State DE Joey Bosa and other pass-rushers are the focus of the Baltimore Ravens with their No. 6 pick in the NFL Draft, according to a source. Bosa and Oregon DE DeForest Buckner are considered the top-two pass-rushers in this year's draft class. Owner Steve Bisciotti said young pass-rushers are an emphasis in this year's draft because the Ravens don't know how long their dynamic pass-rushers in LBs Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs have left.
