WR | Tandon Doss | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens WR Tandon Doss is a candidate for a much bigger role in the team's offense after WR Anquan Boldin was traded to the San Francisco 49ers in the offseason. Doss should compete for playing time behind WRs Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones and could become the No. 3 receiver. WRs LaQuan Williams, David Reed, Deonte Thompson and Aaron Mellette are the other receiving options that will compete in offseason workouts and training camp. Baltimore is open to signing a veteran wideout to compete in camp, as well.

Doss caught a career-high seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in his second year in 2012, and he expects more from himself this year. Doss said he's completely healthy right now and has worked hard on his durability. He missed the last two games of the regular season with an ankle injury and dealt with a hamstring injury during training camp. He's up to 210 pounds and has improved his quickness. "I'm quick and strong and I've got the speed and can outsmart the linebackers, use my quickness and be able to catch the ball," Doss said. "I've always been one of the strongest receivers, just not the widest. I've got a little strength on me. I feel fast and quick. I've put on weight too fast in the past, but now I put it on slow and I've been maintaining my speed and quickness."
