2015 DRAFT GUIDE

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

Jun 25, 03:03 AM Free-agent CB Antoine Cason (foot) will miss the 2015 season due to surgery he underwent on Tuesday, June 23. Cason (Ravens) did not specify what type of surgery he had, but an Instagram post showed his right foot was heavily bandaged.
Jun 24, 04:43 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore showed an improved ability to catch passes in traffic this offseason and was one of the surprises during the offseason workouts. He is expected to compete for the starting tight end job during training camp.
Jun 21, 05:02 PM Free-agent CB Aaron Ross (Ravens) worked out for the St. Louis Rams last week, according to a source.
Jun 20, 04:02 PM Baltimore Ravens C Jeremy Zuttah (hip) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, June 18, as he continues to recover from hip surgery this offseason.
Jun 19, 02:32 PM Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) said he'll be full-go once training camp begins. Mosley is recovering from wrist surgery and practiced in a limited capacity while wearing a brace during minicamp.
Jun 19, 02:22 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was not medically cleared to practice in minicamp as he continues to recover from his second dislocated and fractured hip in as many years. Even if he's cleared, Pitta will need to decide for himself if he wants to continue playing.
Jun 18, 08:32 PM Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Butler showed the ability to create separation and work both the sidelines and the middle of the field Thursday, June 18, in the Ravens' final minicamp practice. 'Jeremy Butler, he might have had 1,500 yards in a three-day minicamp,' quarterback Joe Flacco said. 'He was incredible. He caught the ball extremely well. Little things here and there to work on, but the biggest thing is catching the ball ? He's just a big, strong body and catches the ball really well. It's exactly what he showed last year in training camp, I thought, and he's just coming out here and doing more of that,' said Flacco.
Jun 17, 10:03 PM Baltimore Ravens CB Lardarius Webb would like to be the team's primary punt returner this season, in addition to being a starting cornerback. He has previous experience returning punts but has been used mainly in a fair-catch role since the 2011 season. He was spotted catching punts in practice this week along with CB Asa Jackson and WRs DeAndre Carter and Steve Smith, although Smith is unlikely to be used in the role due to his importance to the offense. WR Michael Campanaro (quadriceps) is also in the mix, although he will be sidelined until training camp.

Jun 07, 09:42 AM Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco may be asked to restructure his contract in the near future because his salary cap figure for 2016 will be $28.5 million.
Jun 04, 04:32 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett could see an increased role in the passing game under new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. Forsett said he's excited about being used more as a receiver and is making sure his route-running is up to part so he can be ready for when he's called upon in that area.
Jun 04, 03:32 PM Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has been able to some things during organized team activities, and head coach John Harbaugh is not ruling out Pitta playing in 2015. 'Dennis is out there for about half the practice and he's doing a good job, too, so we're not counting him out at all,' Harbaugh said. It is not known if Pitta will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Jun 03, 09:53 PM Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett expects to have a bigger role in the passing game in 2015. "I was a third down back in the past. That's how I got my start was being a third down back, picking up blitzes, running screens and routes out of the backfield." Forsett said. "I haven't spent much extra time running routes because outside of last year, I have always been used that way. I am ready for it," said Forsett.
Jun 03, 02:13 PM Baltimore Ravens WR Aldrick Robinson (knee) is believed to be dealing with a sprained medial collateral ligament. He likely will be sidelined until the start of training camp.
Jun 02, 11:13 PM Baltimore Ravens WR Aldrick Robinson (knee) suffered a sprained knee during organized team activities (OTAs), according to a source. More tests will be conducted to determine the severity of his injury.
