The Ravens chose Penn State DE Jayson Oweh with the 31st pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Much has been made of Oweh finishing 2020 with 0 sacks. But he still earned 1st-team All-Big Ten honors while collecting 6.5 tackles for loss in 7 games. Oweh’s biggest selling point, though, looks like his raw athleticism. He ran an absurd 4.37-second 40 at nearly 6’5 and 257 pounds. Even if you add the .05-second pro day adjustment, Oweh still generates the 2nd-best speed score among all edge prospects over the past 5 years (behind only Montez Sweat). Landing in Baltimore figures to mean an LB designation for Oweh in IDP leagues.
The Raiders have agreed to a 2-year, $26 million deal with DE Yannick Ngakoue, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's a questionable signing for a defense that has Maxx Crosby and 2019 first-round pick Clelin Ferrell in place, plus Carl Nassib, who arrived on a sizable free-agent deal last offseason. The money certainly points to Ngakoue taking over a primary pass-rushing role. We'll see what that means for everyone else's playing time. Ngakoue endured a rough 2020 that saw him get traded twice (from Jacksonville to Minnesota to Baltimore). His 8 sacks matched the previous season, but Ngakoue managed a career-low 11 QB hits (including just 3 over 9 games with the Ravens). We won't be pumped about Ngakoue in IDP drafts for 2021.
Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (shoulder) and OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) are active for today's game against the Titans. CB Jimmy Smith is also active for the 1st time since Week 14. Smith hasn't played more than half the snaps in a game since Week 9. A healthier Baltimore defense is obviously bad news for Tennessee's offense, though this game still carries plenty of shootout potential. The 54-point over/under comes in 3.5 points higher than any other game on the slate.
Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (shoulder) and OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Humphrey played through the issue last week and made it through a full practice Friday. So he should be good to go. Ngakoue also progressed from missing practice all last week and then sitting out the game to participating every day this week and finishing with a full Friday workout. So he appears on track to return. We'll check the status of both on Sunday.
Ravens EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) is inactive for today's regular-season finale against the Bengals. CB Marlon Humphrey, CB Marcus Peters and DE Calais Campbell, though, are all active after entering the day questionable.
Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (knee, shoulder), DE/OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh), CB Marcus Peters (calf) and DE Calais Campbell (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Humphrey, Peters and Campbell all finished the week with full practices, so we'd guess they'll be ready to play. Ngakoue, on the other hand, missed practice all week. There may be coaching decisions involved with playoffs starting next week, but Baltimore has not yet clinched their spot. We'll check on all statuses before the game Sunday.
Ravens DE/OLB Yannick Ngakoue suffered a thigh injury in Sunday's win over the Giants. We'll see about his status heading into the regular-season finale at Cincinnati.
Ravens CB Marcus Peters (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. With CB Jimmy Smith also out, it looks like Anthony Averett and Tramon Williams joining Marlon Humphrey as Baltimore's top 3 corners. The situation adds upside to Giants WR Darius Slayton, who has seen 17 targets over the past 2 weeks and sits at his cheapest DraftKings price of the season. Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) is active. He finished the week with his 1st full practice since suffering his calf injury way back in Week 9. So Campbell should be in for more playing time than he has seen the past 2 games following his return. That makes him an IDP lineup candidate for the 1st time in a while and stands as bad news for the Giants' run game.
Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) and CB Marcus Peters (calf) are inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Campbell's absence enhances the rushing matchup for Jacksonville RB James Robinson. A secondary missing Peters and CB Jimmy Smith helps the matchup for Jaguars WRs as well.
