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

May 23, 08:33 PM Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) will miss all of the organized team activities this offseason because he is still recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Flacco said he has made big improvements in his recovery, and head coach John Harbaugh said Flacco should be ready for training camp. QB Ryan Mallett will work with the first-team offense during the workouts.

May 20, 03:53 PM Baltimore Ravens LB Zach Orr is the leading candidate to start at inside linebacker in 2016, but he will have to win the job during training camp. LBs Arthur Brown and Albert McClellan could also be options for the job, but the team may also consider signing a veteran free agent if no one on the roster is able to handle the job.
