The Ravens selected North Carolina WR Devontez Walker in Round 4 of the NFL Draft. Walker’s path to the draft was a long one that included a 2019 ACL tear and multiple transfers. He entered scouts’ radar in 2022 at Kent State, where he tallied 58-921-11 in 12 games. Walker accounted for 29.6% of the team’s catches, 35.6% of the receiving yards, and 64.7% of the receiving TDs. Strong marks – the kind you want to see from a guy facing a lower level of competition. A transfer to North Carolina paired Walker with top-10 QB prospect Drake Maye. However, Walker didn’t play a full season, as an eligibility battle with the NCAA limited the Carolina native to eight games. When active, he filled an outside, vertical role. That led to a massive 18.2-yard aDOT and 17.0 yards per catch. The nearly 6’2, 193-pounder effectively used his 83rd percentile wingspan to snag 10 of 17 contested catch opportunities (58.5%). Walker also boats NFL-caliber speed on tape. According to tracking data from Zebra Sports, he hit a Senior Bowl-high 21.18 MPH. Walker’s negatives come from a lack of proven post-catch ability and a thin route portfolio. Overall, we’re intrigued by the size/athleticism package. In Baltimore, Walker finds intriguing opportunity behind No. 1 WR Zay Flowers. Walker will primarily compete for snaps with Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor. The rookie at least has a shot to provide some spike weeks for best-ball teams. Longer term, he has the potential to develop into a field-stretching No. 2 WR for QB Lamar Jackson.

Ravens QB Tyler Huntley will start Saturday's regular-season finale vs. the Steelers, HC John Harbaugh said Wednesday. QB Lamar Jackson will get the day off after Baltimore clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed last week. We'll see whether Baltimore plans to play other key regulars like RB Gus Edwards, WRs Zay Flowers and Odell Beckham, and TE Isaiah Likely. They'd all make for risky Week 18 fantasy starts.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson dominated the Dolphins with 321 yards and 5 TDs in Week 17. The five scores tied a career high, and he did so on only 21 pass attempts. Isaiah Likely (2), Zay Flowers, Justice Hill, and Patrick Ricard accounted for Jackson’s TDs against a previously surging Miami defense. Baltimore clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC, so Jackson – and other key starters – might rest Sunday vs. Pittsburgh.

The forecast for today's Rams-Ravens game calls for a 97% chance of rain with winds of 10-15 mph and gusts up to 30. Expect lots of running from both offenses in this one. The over/under has dropped from 45.0 to 42.0 -- although the Ravens are still implied for a solid 24.75 points. See the updated projections for this game.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) is not listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He missed Thursday’s practice but was a full-go on Friday. Consider Jackson’s fantasy outlook for this weekend’s game vs. the Rams unaffected.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson missed Thursday's practice with an illness. This is unlikely to keep him out of this weekend's game vs. the Rams, but Jackson's status is worth checking back on tomorrow afternoon.

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 QB Lamar Jackson completed just 13 of 23 passes for 223 yards in Sunday's loss to the Browns. He did find WR Odell Beckham Jr. for a 40-yard TD but also tossed 2 INTs. In spite of running for 41 yards on 8 carries, Jackson posted a third straight weak fantasy score. It was also the fifth time among his past six games that Jackson accounted for 1 TD or fewer. Baltimore entered the game ranked first in the league in rushing TDs, second in rushing attempts, 31st in pass attempts and 21st in TD passes. That has to factor into Jackson's projection the rest of the way. He does, however, get positive QB-scoring matchups in four of the remaining six games.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson played fine in Sunday's lopsided win over the Seahawks, completing 21 of 26 passes (80.8%) for 187 yards (7.2 per attempt) and running for 60 yards on 10 rushes. But Jackson missed out on the team's 4 offensive TDs. Gus Edwards ran for two scores. Keaton Mitchell added another from 40 yards out. And then QB Tyler Huntley threw the team's lone TD pass to Odell Beckham Jr. after Jackson had been pulled late. That all made for a frustrating fantasy day for Jackson. But there's nothing to worry about here going forward, and it wasn't wrong to play Jackson against a Seattle defense that has been friendlier to offensive passing than rushing on the season. Jackson gets a tough matchup with the Browns in Week 10, but he threw for 2 TDs and ran for 2 more at Cleveland back in Week 4.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson posted MVP-like numbers in Week 7’s win vs. the Lions, completing 21 of 27 passes for 357 yards with 3 TDs. He also added 36 rushing yards and a TD on the ground in the contest. Jackson’s 33.9 fantasy points on Sunday are his highest total in a game since Week 3 of 2022 vs. the Patriots (39.4). This game was also the first time Jackson has thrown for 3 or more TDs since that aforementioned showdown vs. the Patriots one year ago. We like his chances of having another stellar outing in Week 8 vs. the Cardinals.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 21 of 30 passes for 223 yards with 1 TD and INT apiece in Week 6’s win vs. the Titans. He also led the contest with 62 yards on 13 carries. Though Jackson has yet to exceed 250 passing yards in a game in 2023, his rushing output is excellently sustaining his fantasy value. The former MVP leads all QBs with 327 rushing yards and ranks tied for first at the position with 4 rushing TDs this season. Next weekend, Jackson will square off against the Lions in Week 7.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson recorded 2 passing TDs and 2 rushing TDs against the Browns in Week 4. The former MVP completed 15 of 19 attempts for 187 passing yards and ran the ball for 27 yards on the ground in the victory. Despite missing WRs Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashod Bateman, Jackson put up a classic fantasy superstar performance. Next week, he’ll have a chance to post big numbers against a struggling Steelers defense in Pittsburgh.
