Baltimore Ravens news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:11:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pitta has battled two serious hip injuries in recent years and is unlikely to have much fantasy relevance in 2016, especially considering that the Ravens also have TEs Benjamin Watson, Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore on their roster. The 30-year-old veteran is not worth drafting in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Fantasy Tip: It's definitely encouraging news for Flacco and the Ravens as Flacco has been recovering from a torn ACL. Flacco is still not worthy of starting fantasy quarterback status even at full health, however. He has not thrown for more than 4,000 yards or 27 touchdowns in any season.

Fantasy Tip: Smith and Perriman are still expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, although neither of them will probably play much in the preseason. Richardson can be avoided in fantasy drafts, while Smith and Perriman should be drafted as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 and WR5, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Aiken should still see a decent amount of targets even with Smith, Wallace and Breshad Perriman in the mix. Even with the large number of mouths to feed, Aiken is still a WR4 consideration heading into 2016.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) is already throwing like his regular, healthy self, according to WR Kamar Aiken. Aiken said Flacco looked the same as he always has when the caught passes from him for the first time this offseason. "He looks 100% to me," Aiken said. Aiken added that Flacco didn't have any "limp or lags" and that he was surprised Flacco looked as good as he did. "I'm just happy to get him back."
Fantasy Tip: This is certainly good news for Flacco and the Ravens offense heading into training camp. Flacco probably still isn't at maximum health, but it looks like he can get there by the start of the regular season. Even with good health, though, Flacco is comfortably a backup fantasy quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Flacco has some better prospects at receiver this year if Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman prove healthy, but the gunslinger has always been a better real life QB than fantasy one. Take him as a serviceable backup and not as a QB1.

Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) is expected to be at full strength when training camp starts later this month. CB Will Davis (knee) will also return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered late last season.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker has been one of the better kickers in the NFL over the past few years. The Ravens may have seen a dip in their production on offense, but Tucker could still be a decent option in most fantasy leagues.

Baltimore Ravens K Justin Tucker has vowed not to re-sign with the team after this season if the two sides cannot come to an agreement on a long-term deal before the Friday, July 15 deadline, according to his agent Rob Roche. The franchise tag for kickers this season is $4.5 million, which is what Tucker would be earning if he can't secure his desired long-term contract prior to Friday afternoon.
Fantasy Tip: Tucker has a real gripe here. Not only has he been one of the most consistent kickers in fantasy over the past few seasons, he's actually the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history. By comparison, Baltimore has been offering him less money than what Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby makes. Regardless of where he plays, Tucker is still one of the upper echelon legs to lean on in any fantasy league.

Fantasy Tip: Dixon will likely take a backseat to Justin Forsett and Javorius Allen in the pecking order, but he has appeal in dynasty formats. He might not have a lot of fantasy value entering the season unless something happens to Forsett or Allen. See how things shake out in training camp.

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is still the "clear lead dog" in the Ravens' backfield, according to Ryan Mink of baltimoreravens.com. The starting job is Forsett's to lose, with RBs Javorius Allen, Kenneth Dixon, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrance West and Trent Richardson lurking behind him.
Fantasy Tip: Baltimore is deep at running back, but Forsett is a proven success and should be the lead back as long as he's healthy. Allen and Dixon are probably the most likely to compete for playing time, and both are worth late-round picks in traditional fantasy leagues. Forsett has more value in PPR leagues and should be viewed as an RB3 in such formats.
