Ravens TE Mark Andrews roped in all 9 of his targets for 100 yards in Week 17's loss vs. the Steelers. The veteran hadn't recorded a game of 10+ PPR points since Week 12 vs. the Jaguars prior to Sunday. Fantasy managers who found their way to the championship round despite Andrews' lack of production were certainly happy to see this resurgence. Fellow TE Isaiah Likely is the only other Ravens' pass-catcher who recorded multiple receptions, hauling 3 of 5 targets for 13 yards and 1 TD. Week 17 is a reminder that despite a shoulder injury and QB Lamar Jackson missing time this season, Andrews remains a top-flight fantasy asset.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews managed just 4 catches for 53 yards on 7 targets in Sunday's win over the Broncos. He finished 2nd on the team in targets and led the group in yards in a game that saw QB Lamar Jackson leave early with a knee injury. WR Demarcus Robinson led in targets (8) and receptions (7), compiling 41 yards. WR Devin Duvernay caught all 6 of his looks for 34 yards. TE Isaiah Likely was the only other Raven to catch more than 2 balls (4-30 on 4 targets).

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely (ankle) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday’s game against the Broncos but isn’t a viable fantasy play.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely (ankle) was a full-go in Thursday's practice, putting him in line to return for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos. Likely isn't a viable fantasy play, but his presence takes TE Josh Oliver out of consideration in even the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos, but we'll track the rookie's progress over the next few days.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. He suffered an ankle injury in Friday's practice. Likely's absence probably just pushes an extra target or 2 Mark Andrews' way.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely was added to Friday’s injury report and limited in practice with an ankle. He’s listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jaguars. Likely, of course, isn’t much of a fantasy option with TE Mark Andrews healthy.

The Ravens expect TE Mark Andrews (knee, shoulder) to play today against the Panthers, NFL Network reports. An active Andrews belongs in nearly all fantasy football lineups. His return makes Isaiah Likely a bench guy.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (knee, shoulder) did not travel to New Orleans and has been downgraded to out for Monday night's game vs. the Saints. Rookie Isaiah Likely steps in as Baltimore's lead TE -- and potential team target leader with WR Rashod Bateman also out.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (knee, shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game vs. the Saints. He didn't practice all week and should obviously be on fantasy benches. Baltimore has a Week 10 bye, so we'll see if Andrews can make it back for Week 11. His absence on Monday night leaves TE Isaiah Likely as the Ravens' lead TE -- and potentially the top target in the passing game with WR Rashod Bateman done for the season. Note, though, that New Orleans ranks 1st in both adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs and Football Outsiders' TE coverage rankings.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (shoulder, knee) missed practice again on Friday. Baltimore still has 1 more practice ahead of Monday night's game vs. the Saints, but it's looking like Andrews will miss that one. His absence would make TE Isaiah Likely a viable Week 9 spot starter, despite the matchup against the league's top-ranked TE defense.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh announced Thursday that WR Rashod Bateman will have season-ending surgery for the Lisfranc injury to his left foot. That leaves Devin Duvernay and Demarcus Robinson as the team's top 2 wideouts. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that WR DeSean Jackson is also expected to be active for Monday night's game against the Saints. Rookie TE Isaiah Likely should see more opportunities as well, even after Mark Andrews is healthy. Losing Bateman certainly doesn't help QB Lamar Jackson, who's passing numbers have dipped since Bateman originally went down against Buffalo.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews is dealing with shoulder and ankle injuries, HC John Harbaugh said Monday. Neither is considered major. It sounds like Andrews at least has a chance to play against the Saints this weekend. But the Ravens have a Week 10 bye, so they could give Andrews extended time to heal up for the stretch run by holding him out this Sunday. We'll track his practice participation throughout the week. TE Isaiah Likely will be a viable fantasy spot starter if Andrews sits.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. The rookie was limited in practice all week and remains more of a dynasty stash than redraft option.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely (groin) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. The rookie has 4 catches on 9 targets through 2 games and shouldn't be in your Week 3 fantasy plans.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley believes TE Isaiah Likely has become a "leading candidate" for the team's #3 pass-catcher role behind TE Mark Andrews and WR Rashod Bateman. It's rare for a rookie TE to be a fantasy factor. And it's rare for a team to produce 2 fantasy-relevant TEs. So Likely would be the exception to a couple of rules. But the guy has been phenomenal this preseason, catching all 12 of his targets for 144 yards and a score on 42 snaps. And Baltimore's WR depth chart is weak behind Bateman. Likely has our attention as a possible last-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely exploded for 8 catches, 100 yards and a score in Sunday's preseason game vs. the Cardinals. The Ravens sat their key offensive starters -- and so did the Cardinals defense -- but it was an impressive performance nonetheless. Likely, of course, will play behind TE Mark Andrews when the games start to count. But, considering Baltimore's thin WR corps, there's a chance Likely sees enough work to make some noise. He's at least worth a look near the end of TE-premium drafts.

Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic calls TE Isaiah Likely “the talk of camp.” Zrebiec expects the rookie 4th-round pick to see a lot of time in the slot and hold a “major part” in the 2022 offense. In other words, look for Baltimore's rate of 2-TE sets to rise. There are certainly targets up for grabs in a unit that’s thin at WR. Likely isn’t a high-end athlete and goes nearly 6’5, 245 pounds, but he emerged from Coastal Carolina with a huge career line of 133-2,050-27. Likely at least needs to be on the radar in FFPC leagues.

The Ravens selected TE Isaiah Likely out of Coastal Carolina with the 139th overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft – 11 picks after adding TE Charlie Kolar. Likely jumped right in to tie for the team lead in TD catches as a true freshman. His biggest season came as a 2021 senior, when he claimed 24.3% target share and delivered a 59-912-12 receiving line. Likely ran a little slow (24th-percentile speed score for the position) but otherwise tested well. He’ll likely need further development before making an impact, but there’s long-term receiving upside.
