Baltimore Ravens news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 13:26:34 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 24, with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a torn medial collateral ligament. Free-agent QB Jimmy Clausen (Bears) was subsequently claimed.
Fantasy Tip: Matt "Pick Six" Schaub will start with Flacco out, and Flacco is expected to recover in time for the 2016 season. As for Schaub, he shouldn't be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (forearm) remains part of the team's 2016 plans at the age of 31. "I would expect Justin back next year full-speed, ready to go," head coach John Harbaugh said. "He's under contract and a big part of what we're doing going forward." Forsett signed a three-year, $9 million deal with the Ravens this year, but only the $2.1 million signing bonus and his 2015 salary ($900,000) are guaranteed.
Fantasy Tip: Forsett finished with decent numbers despite being on a bad team. He ran 151 times for 641 yards (4.2 yards per rush) with two touchdowns. He also had 31 catches for 153 yards. He'll be an RB2 consideration in traditional drafts, but expect him to have competition in the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett will miss the rest of this season with a broken arm, giving Javorius Allen the starting reins at running back. If Allen is available in seasonal leagues, he's worth an immediate pickup.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco likely will not participate in any of the offseason workouts, so owners will need to monitor his rehab. Flacco could be a No. 2 quarterback for fantasy teams in 2016 if he is healthy. Matt Schaub will take his place for the rest of this season but is not a great fantasy option.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) said he tore the anterior and medial collateral ligaments in his knee in Week 11, although he has yet to have an MRI exam. Flacco is expected to miss the rest of the year, and it'll be the first time he has missed a game since being drafted in 2008. Flacco had started 122 straight games, which was the fifth-longest streak in NFL history. QB Matt Schaub will finish the season as the starter.
Fantasy Tip: You can obviously cut Flacco in any deep redraft leagues at this point. Injuries have decimated Baltimore's skill players this year, leaving nothing intriguing for fantasy players left with Schaub at the helm now and Justin Forsett (broken arm) also out for the year.

Fantasy Tip: Gillmore had jelled nicely with Joe Flacco this season, but that's out the window now with the Ravens turning to Matt Schaub for the starting quarterback duties. The quarterback chance is likely to crush Gillmore's fantasy appeal.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett is done for the season due to a broken arm, so Allen will take over the primary ball carrier duties. He'll be a nice bargain going forward in FantasyScore, and those in standard fantasy formats will want to nab him off the waiver wire if you need running back help.

Fantasy Tip: Javorius Allen likely will receive most of the carries for the rest of the season. Allen has posted decent numbers in limited playing time this season and should be an attractive option if he is still available in leagues.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 13:15:52 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Matt Schaub should be the new starting quarterback with Flacco out for the season. Schaub has thrown two interceptions in limited playing time this season and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on the severity of the injury, Forsett could be out for the rest of the season. As long as he is out, Javorius Allen should start in his place and is worth an immediate pickup in seasonal leagues.
