  Ravens | Kenjon Barner visiting Ravens    Sat Aug 8, 09:48 AM

Free-agent RB Kenjon Barner (Falcons) is visiting the Baltimore Ravens and beginning the testing process Saturday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: The Ravens already have a jam-packed backfield but may be looking for another body in the room. Barner is a good all-purpose back but would be a long-shot to make the 53-man roster.

  Ravens | James Proche may be returner    Fri Aug 7, 06:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR James Proche is considered the leading candidate for the punt returner job this season. WR Willie Snead and Marquise Brown are also options for the job.

Footballguys view: Proche is a quality slot receiver with top notch hands, but he doesn't provide the speed third round pick Devin Duvernay brings to the table, so special teams is his best path to making the team.

  Ravens | Matt Skura expected to practice soon    Fri Aug 7, 06:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens C Matt Skura (knee) should be on the practice field in the near future, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said Skura being placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list was a precautionary move.

Footballguys view: Skura had a severe leg injury end his 2019 and his 2020 was no sure thing, but it looks like he could be ready for the season. The Ravens could use the stability on the interior offensive line as they are also replacing possible Hall of Famer Marshal Yanda at guard.

  Ravens | Trace McSorley has good chance to make team    Fri Aug 7, 03:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Trace McSorley likely will make the final roster since John Harbaugh said the team plans to keep three quarterbacks on the active roster.

Footballguys view: McSorley is part of the "Taysom Hill" wave of third quarterbacks with top-end athleticism and ability to be used in multiple ways, but in the Ravens offense he could actually be a viable backup if Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin III both go down.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown bulks up    Wed Aug 5, 12:53 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown said he added 23 pounds this offseason and currently weighs 180 pounds.

Footballguys view: That's a lot of weight to add and just be 180 pounds but Brown was never a big guy anyway. Brown is incredibly explosive and dangerous in the open field. If healthy, Brown can be a favorite target of QB Lamar Jackson in 2020.

  Ravens | Jacob Breeland likely to miss season    Fri Jul 31, 10:26 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Jacob Breeland (knee) is expected to miss the 2020 season as he continues to recover from knee surgery.

Footballguys view: Breeland was picked up by the Ravens as a UDFA out of Oregon in 2020. A left knee injury in October last year ended his final season with the Ducks. That same injury is going to cause him to miss his first pro season. He's got build up speed but lacks separation on short-to-intermediate routes.

  Ravens | J.K. Dobbins loves fit in Baltimore    Fri Jul 31, 12:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins says he is motivated after falling to the second round of the draft. 'I don't need any fuel, but it added fuel,' Dobbins said. 'It was kind of shocking, but I fell to the right team.'

Footballguys view: It's almost unfair that the Ravens got Dobbins. He is such a perfect fit for the team for this season and certainly into the future when he'll likely get the primary role. Dobbins is a three-down back who can thrive as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. The rookie from Ohio State is going to work in tandem with Mark Ingram this year. Dobbins has a current ADP of RB34 (7.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Baltimore not ruling out Antonio Brown    Thu Jul 30, 02:18 PM

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is a player the Baltimore Ravens are willing to consider, but he is dealing with off-field issues at this point, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: The league has to make a decision on Browns availability. Once the legal stuff is dealt with and the league says he can play, Brown should latch on with a team quickly. He's caught passes from QB Lamar Jackson this offseason and the superstar quarterback has pushed for Brown to be added. We'll see if the Ravens get the deal done...if/when Brown is cleared to play.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown in for huge jump?    Thu Jul 30, 11:38 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown is in line for a huge jump in 2020, according to quarterback Lamar Jackson. Brown has bulked up after an injury-riddled rookie season. 'I feel like he's going to have a huge jump, more than people may think,' Jackson said. 'He was hurt last year, people didn't know that, but he went out there and battled his tail off each and every game on a messed up foot. Now his full potential is going to show this year I feel. He's still young, but he's going to show off. My job is to get the ball out quicker, because he's a lot faster with that foot 100 percent.'

Footballguys view: As a rookie in 2019, Brown flashed in about three games and mostly disappointed in the rest. Brown erupted in Week 1 for 147 yards and 2 touchdowns. After catching 8 passes for 86 yards in Week 2, Brown never approached those numbers again but did add another multi-touchdown game in Week 12. He's a WR3 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2020.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson wants Antonio Brown on team    Wed Jul 29, 03:26 PM

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) worked out with Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson this offseason, and Jackson said he still hopes the Ravens sign Brown.

Footballguys view: Brown is waiting for the league to make a decision on his playing status. He vacillates between wanting to play and retiring seemingly every week or so. We think Brown plays, perhaps for the Ravens (or Seahawks), once the league gives the green light.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards signs tender    Tue Jul 28, 02:36 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards signed his exclusive-rights tender Tuesday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Edwards is a talented back but he's buried on the depth chart, especially after the team added Ohio State RB J.K. Dobbins in the 2020 NFL draft. We'll see Edwards compete for the no.3 role on the Ravens behind Dobbins and Mark Ingram.

  Ravens | Andre Smith opting out    Tue Jul 28, 10:49 AM

Baltimore Ravens OT Andre Smith has opted out of the 2020 season.

Footballguys view: The veteran was likely going to be a swing tackle for the Ravens this season. The team will now try to add more depth on the outside since they already have plenty of depth when it comes to interior offensive linemen.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards' roster spot in jeopardy?    Thu Jul 23, 11:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards was forced down the depth chart following the arrival of second-round draft pick J.K. Dobbins. However, ESPN's Jamison Hensley believes his roster spot is safe after rushing for at least 700 yards in consecutive seasons despite the fact Baltimore has yet to carry four running backs on its season-opening roster in 12 seasons under head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Edwards has gotten better each year and he has shown good burst for a big back that is tough to bring down. He could be a breakout player on his second team, or a good #2 to Dobbins long term if the Ravens re-sign him next year when he hits restricted free agency. Justice Hill could end up being closer to the roster bubble than Edwards.

  Ravens | Devin Duvernay signs contract    Wed Jul 22, 04:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens third-round draft choice WR Devin Duvernay signed a four-year contract with the Ravens Wednesday, July 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Duvernay can flat out fly. In addition to getting by defense in a hurry, Duvernay does a good job of tracking passes over his shoulder. Duvernay has toughness to his game and can toy with defenders after the catch. We'll see where the rookie can fit in behind Marquise Brown in the Ravens pecking order at the wide receiver position.

  Ravens | Patrick Queen agrees to rookie deal    Wed Jul 22, 02:40 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Patrick Queen agreed to terms Wednesday, July 22, to his four-year rookie contract. As NFL rules dictate, the first-round pick's deal comes with a team option for a fifth year, and the financial terms follow slotting requirements.

Footballguys view: Queen has good speed for the linebacker position. He finds his way to the ball quickly and cleanly, plus Queen has the ability to make plays in coverage. Queen is a high-upside inside linebacker who can start and star from day one.

  Ravens | Three to compete for OLB job    Sat Jul 18, 06:00 PM

Baltimore Ravens LBs Tyus Bowser, Jaylon Ferguson and Pernell McPhee will compete for one of the starting outside linebacker jobs during training camp.

Footballguys view: Bowser was a second round pick in 2017 and has the highest ceiling. Ferguson was a third round pick last year and more of a natural sack artist. McPhee has the most experience by far and started seven games for the Ravens last year, but the team might be hoping one of the youngsters steps up and outplays him in camp.

  Ravens | Ben Powers to push for starting job    Sat Jul 18, 05:43 PM

Baltimore Ravens OG Ben Powers is expected to compete with OG D.J. Fluker for the starting right guard job during training camp.

Footballguys view: There are huge shoes to fill at the spot as Marshal Yanda retired this offseason, but Fluker can move bodies in the running game and Powers was drafted in the fourth round last year to be Yanda's eventual replacement. The Ravens brought in Fluker to hedge against Powers not being ready, and Fluker's experience probably makes him the favorite to win the job.

  Ravens | Mark Andrews delivered on third down    Fri Jul 17, 10:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews had 17 receptions on 36 targets for 269 yards on third down in 2019, leading all tight ends in each category.

Footballguys view: Andrews should have a bigger opportunity in the passing game this year with Hayden Hurst gone to Atlanta via trade. He has a chance to overtake Zach Ertz to be the #3 fantasy tight end and may even go third in some drafts.

  Ravens | Mark Andrews intends to play in 2020    Thu Jul 16, 02:03 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews intends to play in 2020, despite having Type 1 diabetes, as indicated by recent comments he made. 'We've got a big year coming up. I want to be able to do a lot of things, and ... just being able to help this team win is exciting for me,' Andrews said during a Zoom call with the Children with Diabetes Foundation.

Footballguys view: This is good news for Andrews fantasy teams, but this situation could change at any moment and there is likely to be at least a few players who sit out the season because they are in higher risk groups or otherwise weigh sitting out as the better choice than playing.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson exceptionally elusive    Tue Jul 14, 08:04 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson led the league with 47 carries in which he ran at least five yards before getting contacted in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Jackson had a lot of opportunities to decide when he would run and he chose well. He also possesses as much natural speed and elusiveness as any quarterback since Michael Vick. The offensive line lost possible Hall of Famer Marshal Yanda but otherwise the offense should be even better this year.

  Ravens | Malik Harrison under contract    Mon Jul 13, 05:41 PM

Baltimore Ravens third-round draft choice LB Malik Harrison signed a four-year contract with the Ravens Monday, July 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Harrison should start right away next to first round pick Patrick Queen, which could lead to a some rough times early against the Houston and Kansas City passing games in Week 2 and 3. Harrison is excellent against the run, but might leave the field on passing downs as a rookie.

  Ravens | Tavon Young ready    Thu Jul 2, 11:16 AM

Baltimore Ravens DB Tavon Young (neck) is ready to go. 'He looks healthy on the computer,' defensive coordinator Don 'Wink' Martindale said last week, via the team's official website. 'He says he's healthy. He's ready to go. Tavon is ready to go, and if he tells me he's ready to go, I believe in him 100 percent. And he'll be ready to go, so I'm excited about that.'

Footballguys view: The team also brought back Jimmy Smith in free agency, so they should be as strong from 1-4 at corner as any team in the league. The Ravens defense will be breaking in two rookie linebackers, but they added Calais Campbell up front to help a pass rush that doesn't have any impact players on the edge other than Matt Judon, who is coming back this year on the franchise tag.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson focused on silencing critics    Wed Jul 1, 12:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has his mind set on winning a playoff game in an effort to silence remaining critics following his MVP 2019 campaign. 'I need to win a playoff game before anything because I'm tired of that already,' Jackson said. 'Once I get tired of something, I have to make it happen. So, that's my goal right now; focus on being a better player all around. Not just a (better) player, but teammate as well.'

Footballguys view: The critics are still there for Jackson, mainly because of his lack of postseason success. We'll see the Ravens run through the regular season once again and they should win the AFC North title in 2020. Then, Jackson will have to work his magic in the playoffs to see if he can get the Ravens to the Super Bowl.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown ready to roll    Sun Jun 28, 12:10 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown 'had a great offseason physically,' according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Footballguys view: Brown entered last year as a rookie still recovering from the Lisfranc injury that kept him from participating in the pre-draft process. His rookie season was full of ups and downs, but this year he's looking to post great numbers. The Ravens have a run-heavy offense, but Brown is the preferred wide receiver on the team. He's a WR3 for Fantasy GMs with the upside to be more if he pays off on his big-play ability.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards expects all RBs to have role    Wed Jun 17, 05:40 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards said he believes the team will be able to keep the top four running backs involved in the offense this season.

Footballguys view: Edwards is correct but that role for some (himself included) is going to be limited unless someone gets banged up. They already have veteran Mark Ingram as a quality starter but in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft they acquired arguably the best running back in the class by selecting J.K. Dobbins from Ohio State. Those two will serve as the 1-2 punch for the Ravens on the ground. Edwards will give the team some power and could see time on third-down-and-short situations or near the goal-line.
