  Ravens | Marquise Brown expected to miss more time    Mon Aug 2, 01:53 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown's (hamstring) hamstring injury is more serious than the team initially thought, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: This is not the injury you want to see with a super fast and super quick receiver like Brown. Hamstring injuries can linger if not given time to rest. Brown has missed the last three practices because of the injury.

  Ravens | Justin Houston agrees to terms    Sat Jul 31, 11:45 AM

Free-agent DE Justin Houston (Colts) agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, July 31, on a one-year contract worth up to $4 million, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: The Ravens defense gets another pass-rusher with Houston joining the fold. He reportedly turned down significantly more money from other clubs in order to join the Ravens, according to Schefter's sources. Houston is not the player he used to be, but the Ravens will be able to get effective play and plenty of pressure from him in their aggressive defense.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson tests positive for COVID    Wed Jul 28, 01:18 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) tested positive for COVID-19 recently, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Jackson will have to go into the COVID protocol and will miss time in training camp and the preseason. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the league is "now going through science." While the Ravens are without their franchise quarterback, Trace McSorley and Tyler Huntley are getting more work.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards to miss early part of camp    Tue Jul 27, 02:45 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards (illness) recently tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the first 10 days of training camp, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: Edwards is a seasoned veteran who doesn't need every rep to be ready for the start of the regular season. However, he does need to get healthy and get out there for at least one preseason game. Edwards has tons of power and will work as a big-bodied complementary back to J.K. Dobbins. He's got enough fantasy potential to be a flex option for Fantasy GMs in 2021.

  Ravens | PUP list for Nick Boyle    Thu Jul 22, 06:00 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Nick Boyle (knee) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Boyle is a key to the Ravens running game and they missed him in the second half of the season. He should be able to get on the field for the season opener against the Raiders.

  Ravens | Ronnie Stanley on PUP list    Thu Jul 22, 05:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 22.

Footballguys view: There is no sign that he won't be ready for the Week 1 tilt against the Raiders, but this is worth watching just in case. Stanley is the cornerstone of the offensive line and his return should boost an offense that was faltering the last time we saw them vs. the Bills in the playoffs.

Baltimore Ravens third-round pick DB Brandon X. Stephens signed his rookie, four-year deal Wednesday, July 21. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Stephens is a converted running back with a high ceiling at cornerback. His physical style of play will fit in well with the Ravens corners.

Baltimore Ravens third-round pick OL Ben Cleveland (Georgia) signed a four-year contract Tuesday, July 20. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

  Ravens | QB Jackson Taking Unnecessary Risk    Mon Jul 12, 12:45 PM

Mike Florio, from Pro Football Talk, reports Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson seems to be taking unnecessary risks as video has emerged of him playing defensive back and receiver on an asphalt basketball court.

Footballguys view: Jackson is having some fun out there on the basketball court, but on the verge of a contract that will make him one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league perhaps he should reconsider. He wasn't hurt, but the possibility is there on asphalt. Sure, it could happen anywhere but why take the risk? The Ravens are going to take care of Jackson, and the sooner the better for both sides. We'll see if they get him a new contract before the start of training camp.

  Ravens | Tylan Wallace in rare company    Sat Jul 3, 11:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Tylan Wallace was one of three receivers in the 2021 draft class to average more than 3.0 yards per route run in both 2019 and 2020.

Footballguys view: Wallace has track speed and was a deep threat, arguably the nation's best, for Oklahoma State over the last few years. He averaged over 100 yards per game over the last three seasons and his 43 contested catches are the most in the FBS during that time. Wallace will be a deep threat for the Ravens while working on his route running and release against press coverage in the pros.

  Ravens | Rashod Bateman lighting up practice    Tue Jun 29, 12:14 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman has wowed in practice this spring. Throughout the spring, Bateman backed up the scouting report about being an exceptional route-runner with how smoothly and succinctly he maneuvered all over the field. No one got open more consistently. Bateman has had some drops, which plagued him in college as well.

Footballguys view: This is one of the most consistent drumbeats from the offseason - Bateman is consistently impressing in camp. Expect this type of performance to continue into training camp as well. The Ravens have a run-heavy offense, so the system could limit his numbers. However, Bateman is a great route runner with the savvy of a veteran. From a fantasy perspective he's more of a deep flex play as a rookie, but in dynasty formats his ceiling is sky high as he continues to learn and grow in the NFL.

  Ravens | Two pass rushers could be options    Mon Jun 28, 03:15 PM

  Ravens | Quick impact for Rashod Bateman    Wed Jun 23, 11:03 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman looks ready to be 'a significant contributor from Day 1,' according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: That makes sense. Bateman is a refined route runner who can gain separation against most any coverage. His ability to get open and strong hands should make him a trusted target for QB Lamar Jackson in 2021. The Ravens aren't going to fill the air with footballs, so that limits the fantasy potential of Bateman as a rookie.

  Ravens | Jaylon Moore's spot in jeopardy?    Wed Jun 23, 10:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jaylon Moore is behind a number of other receivers on the depth chart, and it is 'hard to imagine a scenario' where Moore makes the roster, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Moore was undrafted in 2020 and is a long shot for the 53-man roster. He played in college for the UT Martin Skyhawks where he showed off track speed and a nose for the end zone. We'll see if Moore can earn a spot on the practice squad.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson represented by mother    Wed Jun 23, 12:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is negotiating a contract extension with his mother representing him as his business manager.

Footballguys view: We'll see what kind of deal Jackson can get from the Ravens. He's unlikely to best the contract that Patrick Mahomes received from the Chiefs, but Jackson is in line to be one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league. The Ravens wanted to get something done with Jackson before the start of training camp. That gives them about a month to get this big-money deal done.

  Ravens | Sammy Watkins showed out at minicamp    Mon Jun 21, 12:23 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Sammy Watkins was the best receiver at the team's minicamp as he made several contested grabs. QB Lamar Jackson said it's fun to throw to Watkins.

Footballguys view: This sounds about right. Watkins is a former first-round pick and nobody has ever questioned his talent on the field. However, he's struggled to stay healthy and truly play up to his potential as a pro. Watkins is a nice addition for the Ravens, and Jackson should have fun throwing to him...so long as the veteran receiver can stay healthy.

  Ravens | John Harbaugh talks left guard competition    Sat Jun 19, 05:00 PM

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh called the left guard competition 'wide open' between rookie third-round pick OG Ben Cleveland and third-year OG Ben Powers on Friday, June 19. 'Nobody has separated at this point, but you're not going to separate in something like this,' Harbaugh said. 'But we've got candidates, for sure, and they're all high-level candidates. So, I'm excited about that and can't wait to see it play out. If you like football and you're a real student of the game, you'll be watching that left guard battle during training camp.'

Footballguys view: Either player would be an asset for the running game, but neither is known for their pass blocking. That makes them a good fit for the Ravens offense, even if the team may pass more this year after they added three receivers in the draft and free agency.

  Ravens | Ja'Wuan James not ruled out for 2021    Fri Jun 18, 04:34 PM

Baltimore Ravens OT Ja'Wuan James (Achilles) has a chance to be available in November or December depending on how his recovery goes, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: The Ravens will turn to Alejandro Villanueva to replace Orlando Brown, but if he is struggling or gets hurt, James could actually be an upgrade from the former Pittsburgh Steeler. General manager Eric DeCosta got a steal at two years for nine million if James can play this year.

  Ravens | Rashod Bateman under the weather    Wed Jun 16, 09:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (illness) missed practice with an illness Wednesday, June 16, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

  Ravens | Extension for Lamar Jackson top priority    Wed Jun 16, 05:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is in line for a contract extension, and the team hopes to reach an agreement before the start of training camp, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Jackson's extension is considered the top priority for the Ravens.

Footballguys view: With the fifth-year option, Jackson is under contract with the Ravens through the 2022 season. Paying him now makes sense because his price tag is just likely to go up after this year. Jackson is going to be asked to do more as a passer in 2021, and he's in line to be one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL. We'll see if the Ravens can get something done with him before the start of training camp.

Baltimore Ravens first-round draft choice LB Odafe Oweh signed a four-year contract with the Ravens Friday, June 11. The deal includes a fifth-year option, but financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Oweh has all the traits you want in a top pass rusher, but he didn't record a sack last year at Penn State. He'll play right away in the effort to replace Matt Judon, who signed with the Patriots in free agency.

  Ravens | No offer for Todd Gurley    Thu Jun 10, 04:34 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Todd Gurley (Falcons) had a positive meeting with the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, June 10, but left without a contract offer, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Just like with the Lions at the end of May, Gurley gets to workout but he gets no contract offer. Teams are likely just updating their emergency lists. Gurley is getting some attention but may not find a new home until training camp. There's a chance he doesn't get a new team until the start of the regular season too. He's not the player he used to be but he's not yet done playing in the NFL.

  Ravens | Todd Gurley visiting Ravens    Thu Jun 10, 08:01 AM

Free-agent RB Todd Gurley (Falcons) is visiting the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, June 10.

Footballguys view: Gurley had a visit with the Lions near the end of May but left without a contract. They were likely just updating their emergency list. Perhaps the Ravens will feel differently and sign the veteran back. If signed, Gurley would give them veteran depth behind J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards.

  Ravens | Early day off for Marquise Brown, Rashod Bateman    Tue Jun 8, 06:35 PM

Baltimore Ravens WRs Marquise Brown and Rashod Bateman didn't practice Tuesday, June 8, due to 'muscle-type issues,' according to head coach John Harbaugh. 'We've had other guys, especially the receivers and the 'DBs.' They do a lot of running, so that comes up a little bit in this heat,' Harbaugh said.

Footballguys view: The Ravens aren't going to let their wide receivers overdo it. Cramping and overheating can happen when temperatures rise. They'll get them hydrated, rested and get Brown and Bateman back out there ASAP.

  Ravens | More receiving work ahead for J.K. Dobbins?    Tue Jun 8, 04:47 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins made 'a good number of catches' in practice Tuesday, June 8, continuing a theme head coach John Harbaugh is trying to emphasize this offseason - getting the running backs more involved in the passing game.

Footballguys view: Dobbins is the lead back in the Ravens RBBC with Gus Edwards making it on the field as a power back. We could see Dobbins build on the 18 catches he had in 15 games as a rookie in 2020. Projecting Dobbins for around 25-30 catches (and maybe more) sounds about right. Keep an eye on his receiving work in training camp and the preseason. Dobbins has a current ADP of RB15 (3.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

He still has to pass a physical, but it doesn't include his Achilles' injury. No issues are expected. The deal also includes $500,000 in guaranteed money this year. So the Ravens are paying him $500,000 to rehab this year and have him under contract for more than $8 million next year.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards extended    Mon Jun 7, 11:51 AM

Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent RB Gus Edwards signed a two-year, $10 million extension Monday, June 7.

Footballguys view: The team covets Edwards ability to grind out tough yardage and drag would-be tacklers with him. Edwards should get more touches this year with the departure of Mark Ingram (Texans). He'll work in a RBBC with starter J.K. Dobbins, and Edwards could see his ADP rise (RB42, 9.08) as we get closer to the regular season. Edwards has plenty of flex appeal with his natural talent and the opportunity he has on a run-heavy team like the Ravens.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson to air it out?    Sun Jun 6, 08:37 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson might have some games where he is 'letting it rip,' according to head coach Greg Roman. 'Our goal is to win, and if teams are giving us opportunities to throw the ball deep, it's upon us to work hard and figure that out and really take advantage of that because those are game-changing plays,' Roman said.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are going to be a run-heavy team with Jackson at quarterback. He needs to show growth as a passer, and the Ravens once again worked diligently to get better talent around him. Jackson may 'let it rip' from time to time, but he's still a threat to score as a runner anytime he has the ball and from anywhere on the field.
