Fantasy Tip: Gillmore will be competing with Maxx Williams and Dennis Pitta behind Benjamin Watson, so he won't be worth drafting unless Watson is injured.

Fantasy Tip: Dixon and Gillmore should both be considered day-to-day at this point until more is known about their injuries. Both players are expected to be backups in 2016 but could be late-round draft options in some deeper fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Moore was one of the better players during the first two days of practice, so owners should keep an eye on a possible injury. Moore should have a chance to earn a roster spot with a strong preseason but probably will not be a great fantasy option.

Baltimore Ravens CB Jerraud Powers passed his conditioning test and has been cleared to participate in practice Saturday, July 30. Powers is expected to compete with CB Tavon Young for the nickel back job.

Baltimore Ravens WR Chris Moore has generated some buzz early in training camp because he has caught a 60-yard touchdown pass in each of the first two practices. Moore has received increased snaps during training camp because of the injuries to WRs Steve Smith (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee).
Fantasy Tip: The Ravens appear to be set with their top three receivers if Smith and Perriman are healthy, but Moore could compete for the No. 4 receiver job. Owners in most leagues probably can pass on Moore during their draft, but he could be a waiver wire option if he produces early in the season.

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson said he was still working on his timing after the first day of training camp Thursday, July 28, and at one point, he lined up on the outside in a four-receiver set.
Fantasy Tip: Watson isn't going to be able to duplicate the numbers he put up last year while in New Orleans, and he isn't worth drafting outside of leagues that require two tight ends.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said he wants to win the starting tight end job during training camp. He said he does not believe that he has lost a step even though he missed the last two years because of hip problems.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the preseason to see how Pitta is used in the offense. He was able to post solid numbers before he suffered his hip injuries but is now a risky option for fantasy owners. He is competing for playing time with Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams, so he may not be a great option in some fantasy leagues.

Free-agent OT Jake Long (Falcons) declined to sign an injury waiver Friday, July 29, and will not sign with the Baltimore Ravens. Long texted ESPN saying that his knee feels great, was enthused by Dr. James Andrews' review of his knee this week, and he looks forward to playing this season.

Fantasy Tip: Gillmore has ample competition to stave off, and this will only compound it. He's merely a watch-list player for now.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's tenacity and will has always been great. However, "Father Time" is undefeated. At 37, coming back from this catastrophic injury, it looks really bleak that Smith can be a dependable fantasy receiver. He'll be in the WR4 mix, but that's an area where you can find receivers with upside.
Fri, 29 Jul 2016 06:40:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Smith still holds clout in fantasy, but at 37, it's hard to envision a return to anything more than desperation WR3 or a high-end WR4. Perriman has the talent worth rolling the dice on as a WR5.
Fri, 29 Jul 2016 06:38:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Dixon is the only one of the trio that probably has a spot on the roster. T-Rich and Taliaferro are competing with others for the final running back spot. Neither is worth much fantasy consideration yet with so much depth and uncertainty on the roster. Dixon is in the RB5 mix.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace has a sizeable opportunity with the Ravens, who could lean heavily on him in the slot. He turns 30 in a couple of days, and this could be his last chance. He's in the WR5 flyer mix in fantasy.
