Baltimore Ravens

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

May 05, 10:53 AM Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett has a firm grip on the lead running back role after the Ravens waited until the fourth round to select RB Javorius Allen in the 2015 NFL Draft.
May 04, 05:22 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) may have an unclear future in Baltimore if he is even able to play next season. TE Maxx Williams was selected in the second round and is primed to take over Pitta's role if necessary.
Apr 29, 05:23 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Fitzgerald Toussaint signed his exclusive-rights tender Wednesday, April 29.
Apr 25, 09:52 PM Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he does not think the team needs to draft a wide receiver despite losing WR Torrey Smith to the San Francisco 49ers in free agency.
Apr 25, 09:42 AM Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker could be an option for the franchise tag next offseason if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement on a long-term deal before the tag deadline.
Apr 23, 04:42 PM Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) could be limited in offseason workouts with a wrist injury. 'I'm going to do everything I can. I don't know how much physically I can do. I'm definitely going to be out on the field,' Mosley said.
Apr 23, 03:12 PM Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent FS Will Hill signed his tender offer Thursday, April 23, according to sources. Hill received a one-year deal worth $1.54 million.
Apr 23, 01:52 PM Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent PK Justin Tucker has signed his one-year tender offer. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Apr 22, 12:13 PM Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) said he plans to participate in offseason workouts even though he underwent wrist surgery earlier in the offseason.
Apr 22, 11:53 AM Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) and OT Ricky Wagner (foot) had surgeries to correct Lisfranc sprains this offseason, according to a source.

Apr 20, 06:52 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is participating in the team's voluntary conditioning program that started Monday, April 20. Pitta's career remains in doubt after fracturing his right hip twice in the past two seasons and the Ravens don't expect to know his availability for the 2015 season until the summer.
Apr 17, 05:02 PM Baltimore Ravens exclusive rights free-agent TE Phillip Supernaw, SS Brynden Trawick, CB Rashaan Melvin and OT Ryan Jensen re-signed with the team Friday, April 17. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
Apr 09, 01:42 PM Free-agent OT Jah Reid (Ravens) signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, April 9, worth $745,000, according to sources.
Apr 07, 01:12 AM Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore was solid in his rookie season as a No. 2 tight end most of the year, and team owner Steve Bisciotti feels Gillmore could take a big step forward. 'When you have a guy like a Jason Witten who loves to block - doesn't just do it because he's being made to do it - and can get off the line of scrimmage, that can be a great weapon. I really would expect 30-40 balls to Crockett this year,' Bisciotti said.
Apr 04, 09:02 AM Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) underwent offseason surgery, according to league sources. The Pro Bowl linebacker is expected to make a complete recovery and should be able to participate in offseason workouts and practices.
