Charlie Kolar Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh says TE Mark Andrews' ankle injury against the Bengals appears likely to end his season, according to multiple reports. That would obviously be a huge loss for the Baltimore offense. Andrews accounted for 23.5% of the team's receiving yards this season entering Thursday night -- despite missing the season's first game. He also leads the team in receiving yards per game and sports the highest receiving success rate among Ravens with at least 10 receptions. TE Isaiah Likely dominated playing time at the position after Andrews left. His 29 routes against the Bengals ranked second on the team, according to Pro Football Focus, trailing only WR Zay Flowers. Likely drew just 2 targets, though, and finished with 0 receptions. He'll be worth some waiver-wire attention ahead of Week 12. But don't count on Likely stepping in for starter-level fantasy production. WR Odell Beckham enjoyed arguably his best performance as a Raven. He led the team with 7 targets and 4 receptions, delivering 116 yards. It was Beckham's largest yardage total since Week 2 of 2019. Unfortunately, he also suffered a shoulder injury in the fourth quarter. We'll see about the severity of that injury heading into Week 12, with Baltimore's bye to follow. Losing Andrews hurts QB Lamar Jackson, but he gets the league's best QB-scoring matchup vs. the Chargers in Week 12. So we might need to wait until after the Week 13 bye to actually see the negative impact.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely drew just 1 target in Sunday's win over the Texans, despite TE Mark Andrews being inactive. Likely caught that lone target for 4 yards. TE Charlie Kolar also drew 1 target, which fell incomplete. QB Lamar Jackson attempted just 22 passes. Only WR Zay Flowers (10 targets) drew more than 3 targets. Don't plan to use Likely in Week 2, even if Andrews remains out.

The Ravens have activated TE Charlie Kolar from IR. Kolar has yet to play a game this season because of a sports hernia, but he has been practicing for several weeks. “He’s looked really good,” HC John Harbaugh told the team’s website. “He’s a young player, and he missed a lot of time during training camp so he’s still developing, but he’s out there [and] he looks good. He’s so talented, he’s so big, he has great hands. He had three good weeks of practice, so I anticipate him being brought up this week.” Kolar will have to contend with a crowd at TE, including Mark Andrews' expected return from injury, Josh Oliver, Nick Boyle and fellow rookie Isaiah Likely. It'll be tough for Kolar to carve out a significant role the rest of the way -- perhaps even to make the game-day roster.

Ravens TE Charlie Kolar will undergo sports-hernia surgery early next week, HC John Harbaugh said. That figures to threaten the rookie's availability for the start of the season. Kolar, of course, is unlikely to be a 2022 fantasy asset. He's just a dynasty stash.

Iowa State TE Charlie Kolar went to the Ravens in the 4th round of the NFL Draft. Kolar enjoyed a highly productive college career that found him a finalist for the John Mackey Award each of the past 2 seasons. The 6’7, 252-pounder averaged 4.4 receptions, 42 yards and 0.6 TDs per game over the past 3 years. He then delivered an 87th-percentile speed score and tested out well athletically. Kolar looks more like a “move” TE than a blocker, which should be good for his fantasy upside. Don’t be surprised if his career starts slowly, though. He’ll, of course, open his career behind Mark Andrews in Baltimore.
