The Ravens have ruled CB Marlon Humphrey (calf) out for Saturday's game against the Steelers. They list S Kyle Hamilton (knee), CB Brandon Stephens (ankle), and CB Ronald Darby (illness) as questionable. We've had Humphrey, Hamilton, and Stephens out of the DB rankings all week. Even if Hamilton and/or Stephens plays, there's little reason for Baltimore to keep either starter on the field for usual full-time duty. Darby remains in there because he's a fill-in level DB. If he's active, he'll be OK to use in deeper IDP leagues.

Ravens S Kyle Hamilton (knee) and CB Brandon Stephens (ankle) went inactive for Sunday's win over the Dolphins. CB Marlon Humphrey left the game with a calf injury. Baltimore clinched the AFC's top playoff seed anyway. Given that, it's hard to imagine the Ravens playing any of those defenders for the Week 18 matchup with Pittsburgh. We'll see whether the team reveals any specific plans for who else will play no or limited snaps. Geno Stone and Marcus Williams played full time at safety vs. Miami. Stone figures to play in Week 18. (He's the third safety.) Williams, however, could be another candidate to sit. He has dealt with multiple injuries throughout the season. Ronald Darby (100%) and Rock Ya-Sin (81%) led CBs in playing time vs. the Dolphins.

Ravens S Kyle Hamilton (knee) and CB Brandon Stephens (ankle) are inactive for today's game against the Dolphins. We've moved S Geno Stone up the DB rankings some. That improves the matchup for Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill, who you were already playing anyway. The spot gets a little better for QB Tua Tagovailoa as well, though he remains a risky option and sits just outside the top 12 in our Week 17 QB rankings.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that S Marcus Williams will "be out for a while" with the pectoral injury he suffered Sunday, according to multiple reports. Harbaugh said Williams is considering surgery and that the injury doesn't necessarily end his season. That it even could, though, makes Williams droppable in nearly all IDP leagues. We've already removed him from our rest-of-season rankings. Geno Stone filled in for Williams against the Texans and figures to start next to Kyle Hamilton going forward. Stone has spent most of his time at deep safety -- likely Williams -- which limits his fantasy upside. Hamilton remains the more intriguing IDP because of his higher snap count "in the box." A trailing Houston offense went pass-heavy in the opener, sending tackle opportunities further downfield. Brandon Stephens, who you might see listed as a safety, started at CB for Baltimore in the opener. He can also be an IDP option if you lost Williams.

Ravens DL Calais Campbell (thigh), EDGE Odafe Oweh (illness) and Brandon Stephens (illness) are active for today's game against the Bengals.

Ravens CB Anthony Averett (knee) and S Brandon Stephens (shoulder) are active for today's game against the Browns.

Ravens CB Anthony Averett (knee) and S Brandon Stephens (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Both players finished the week with a full Friday practice and seem likely to play. We'll check their statuses Sunday.
