  Ravens | Big expectations for J.K. Dobbins?    Fri Apr 9, 10:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is slated for a 'very big role' in the offense in 2021, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, and Hensley expects 1,100 rushing and double-digit touchdowns out of Dobbins.

Footballguys view: Dobbins could easily finish 2021 as a RB1 for Fantasy GMs. He should cross the 1,000-yard line as a runner, and it would make sense if the Ravens threw more passes his way. Dobbins has a current ADP of RB19 (3.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown steps up in playoffs    Fri Apr 9, 09:38 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown has averaged 17.9 yards per reception across three career postseason games, catching 18 passes for 322 yards.

Footballguys view: Brown really thrived in the postseason. He only had one 100-yard game in 2020, but if he continues on the track he had in the playoffs then he could be in for career-best numbers this season. Fantasy GMs should consider Brown a WR3 with upside for 2021.

  Ravens | Sammy Watkins passes physical    Fri Apr 2, 01:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Sammy Watkins has passed his physical, the team announced Friday, April 2, and has signed a one-year, $5 million contract.

Footballguys view: Watkins has talent when healthy but staying on the field has been a problem for him. The Ravens need help at the wide receiver position...they have for some time now...and Watkins is the latest in a line of trying to make that happen. In their run-heavy offense he could perform like a flex play for Fantasy GMs.

  Ravens | Baltimore adding Sammy Watkins    Fri Mar 26, 06:46 PM

Free-agent WR Sammy Watkins (Chiefs) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens Friday, March 26, worth $6 million, according to a source. The deal includes $5 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: The Ravens continue to look for upgrades at the wide receiver position. Watkins has a ton of skill but injuries have held him back in his pro career with multiple teams. If healthy, Watkins could be a top target for QB Lamar Jackson. However, with the Ravens run-heavy offense Fantasy GMs should not look at him as more than a 'what the heck' flex.

  Ravens | Baltimore to meet with Sammy Watkins    Mon Mar 22, 02:25 PM

Free-agent WR Sammy Watkins (Chiefs) will meet with the Baltimore Ravens Tuesday, March 23, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Watkins hasn't gotten much interest on the open market. The Ravens are constantly looking for help at the wide receiver position, so it makes sense they are looking at the former first-round pick. If healthy (a big IF), Watkins can provide speed and experience to an offense.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson no stranger to explosive runs    Mon Mar 22, 12:42 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is tied for second in the league with 29 runs of at least 20 yards since 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Jackson is simply electric with the football in his hands. He can eat up yards quickly and has no problem changing direction at speed. The Ravens will look to add more weapons around him in the passing game, but running will still be a large part of his game.

  Ravens | Marcus Peters restructures    Fri Mar 12, 09:46 AM

Baltimore Ravens CB Marcus Peters restructured his deal Friday, March 12, to free up $3.5 million of salary cap space.

Footballguys view: The cap room should help retain running back Gus Edwards, who would have an almost identical salary if the team tenders the restricted free agent at a second round level.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards could still land extension    Wed Mar 10, 05:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards remains a candidate for a multi-year extension after signing a $3.4-million, second-round tender Wednesday, March 10, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.

Footballguys view: It's something the Ravens will explore but at least they have him dialed in for 2021. A second-round tender means they really want to keep him and no team should make a run at the veteran power back as they'd have to surrender a second-round pick to sign him away from Baltimore. He'll work in tandem with J.K. Dobbins this season.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent RB Gus Edwards received the second-round tender offer Wednesday, March 10, according to a source.

  Ravens | Mark Andrews in contract talks    Tue Mar 9, 12:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews has begun preliminary contract discussions with the team Tuesday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Andrews was a helluva find for the Ravens in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft - a year when they selected a tight end (Hayden Hurst) in the first round. He's a favorite target of QB Lamar Jackson and a fantasy favorite for GMs out there. Expect Andrews to sign a deal that makes him one of the highest-paid tight ends in the league.

  Ravens | BAL unlikely to sign top WR    Tue Mar 2, 10:10 AM

Free-agent WRs Allen Robinson (Bears) and Kenny Golladay (Lions) are unlikely to be on the Baltimore Ravens' radar. However, they could sign one or two of the second-tier receivers.

Footballguys view: That's a move perhaps the team should consider. The Ravens have not had a WR eclipse 800 receiving yards since 2016. QB Lamar Jackson would greatly benefit as a passer if he had a legit no.1 WR like Golladay or Robinson.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson has not started talks with BAL    Mon Mar 1, 02:30 PM

Contrary to a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has not started contract extension talks with the Ravens at this point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Ravens have insisted that something could be worked out with Jackson before the start of the regular season. He's under contract through the 2022 season, so they have time...although the price is going to go up the longer they wait.

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Dez Bryant said he hopes to play two more seasons but indicated that he likely will not re-sign with the Ravens.

Footballguys view: Bryant is not what he used to be but he could still latch on with a team as veteran depth. He'll likely have to wait for a new opportunity, and he could go into training camp without a team. Maybe we're wrong and some team wants to sign him in the spring, but this is where Bryant is at in his career.

  Ravens | J.K. Dobbins delivered big plays    Sat Feb 20, 09:34 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins led all rookies with eight rushes of 20-plus yards in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Dobbins is only going to get better as his pro career churns on. The rookie averaged a healthy 6.0 yards per carry in 2020, and he finished the year as the no.20 fantasy running back in standard-scoring formats. He's got the ability to be a RB1 for Fantasy GMs and he's in the run-heavy offense to do just that in 2021 and beyond.

Baltimore Ravens WRs Devin Duvernay and James Proche are expected to 'take the next step in their development and become more vital playmakers' on offense next season, according to comments made by general manager Eric DeCosta on Thursday, Feb. 18.'We're excited about both those guys - we really are,' DeCosta said.

Footballguys view: Duvernay has the speed to take the top off the defense. We like his skill set, but the Ravens run-heavy offense will hold his production down. We'll see what kind of steps he can take in 2021.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson moves the chains with his feet    Mon Feb 15, 01:53 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has rushed for at least 10 yards on 99 of his carries since entering the league in 2018 - 42 more than any other quarterback over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Jackson is going to continue being dangerous as a runner in 2021, but we'll see if he can make strides as a passer. The team has a low-volume passing attack, but to take that next step we need to see Jackson become more dangerous with his arm.
