The Ravens and WR Rashod Bateman have agreed to a contract extension that keeps him in Baltimore through the 2026 season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Bateman had been scheduled to hit free agency next offseason. The 2021 first-round pick has underwhelmed through three NFL campaigns, missing 17 games of 51 regular-season games and failing to reach 50 yards in 25 of the other 34. HC John Harbaugh said back in February, though, that he expected Bateman to take a big step in 2024 and get the ball "a lot more." There's certainly opportunity for Bateman in Baltimore's current WR corps. But he can't be considered more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts considering his career thus far.

Ravens WR Zay Flowers (calf) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Steelers. He joins QB Lamar Jackson and WR Odell Beckham on the sidelines for this one. QB Tyler Huntley starts with WRs Rashod Bateman, Nelson Agholor, Laquon Treadwell, and Tylan Wallace.

Ravens WR Zay Flowers (calf) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Steelers. He played through this injury last week, so this is very likely a case of Flowers getting some rest in a meaningless finale. He should be ready for Baltimore's playoff opener in a couple of weeks. WR Odell Beckham (rest) has been ruled out for Week 18. The Ravens will trot out some combination of WRs Rashod Bateman, Nelson Agholor, Laquon Treadwell, and Tylan Wallace with QB Tyler Huntley.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (foot) is not listed on the final Week 12 injury report. He tweaked his foot on Wednesday but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Bateman will play vs. the Chargers on Sunday night. But, assuming WRs Zay Flowers and Odell Beckham suit up, Bateman isn’t a viable fantasy option.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman left Wednesday's practice with a foot injury. But HC John Harbaugh said afterward the wideout "should be fine," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This is a particularly worrisome situation, however, for a guy who lost most of 2022 to a foot injury that continued to inhibit him through this past summer. We don't yet know if it's the same foot or a related issue. Of course, Bateman's latest ailment could deliver little to no fantasy impact because he's averaging just 2.0 receptions per game this season.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. Bateman totaled just seven catches for 59 scoreless yards over the first three weeks of the season and isn't a recommended Week 5 fantasy play.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. Bateman totaled just seven catches on nine targets through the first three games of the season and can't be trusted in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Ravens WRs Odell Beckham (ankle) and Rashod Bateman (hamstring) have been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. That leaves Nelson Agholor as Baltimore's No. 2 WR and Devin Duvernay as the No. 3. Expect a run-heavy attack from the Ravens, with WR Zay Flowers and TE Mark Andrews dominating targets.

Ravens WRs Odell Beckham (ankle) and Rashod Bateman (hamstring) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. They're both looking iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. Their absences would leave Nelson Agholor as Baltimore's No. 2 WR. We'll see how Beckham and Bateman are listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He said his hamstring tightened up late in last week's loss to the Colts. We'll track his status over the next few days, but Bateman shouldn't be in your Week 4 fantasy plans.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman dealt with hamstring trouble late in Sunday's loss to the Colts. He said afterward that the hamstring tightened up on him but that he doesn't believe it's anything serious, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. We'll look for further updates on Bateman and track his practice participation this coming week. Despite WR Odell Beckham's absence, Bateman mustered just one catch for six yards against the Colts.

Ravens WR Odell Beckham (ankle) has been ruled out for this weekend’s game against the Colts. It’s a surprise after NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said early in the week that Beckham’s injury wasn’t expected to cost him time. His absence should mean a significant playing-time boost for WR Rashod Bateman, who’s been the clear No. 3 WR in snaps through two weeks.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh says the ankle injury that knocked WR Odell Beckham Jr. out of Sunday's win over the Bengals is minor. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Beckham is "managing the issue" and that it's not expected to cost him game time going forward -- "if all goes well." We'll watch Beckham's status heading into a Week 3 home date with the Colts. WRs Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay each gained significant playing time Sunday vs. Week 1. Nelson Agholor went from 0 Week 1 targets to leading the Week 2 receiving production, but his playing time didn't grow with Beckham going down.

WR Nelson Agholor led the Ravens with 63 receiving yards in Sunday's win over the Bengals. His 5 catches tied TE Mark Andrews for the team lead and included a 17-yard TD. Agholor benefited from WR Odell Beckham Jr. leaving early with an ankle injury. WR Zay Flowers fell just 1 yard short of Agholor, with a 4-62 receiving line on 5 targets. WR Rashod Bateman drew just three looks, catching all three for 18 yards. We'll see about Beckham's status for a Week 3 home date with the Colts. Even if he's out, though, we wouldn't make Agholor a priority pickup on waivers this week.

Ravens WR Odell Beckham has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals with an ankle injury. We'll update his status when we know more. Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman, and Nelson Agholor will operate as Baltimore's top three WRs the rest of the way.

Ravens WR Zay Flowers drew 10 targets among QB Lamar Jackson's 22 pass attempts in Sunday's easy victory over the Texans. Flowers caught nine of them for 78 yards (8.7 yards per catch). Rashod Bateman and Odell Beckham Jr. garnered 3 targets apiece, tying RB J.K. Dobbins for second on the team (and Dobbins went down in the third quarter). We'll see whether target distribution continues to look similar. Flowers at least looks like the clear top choice among Baltimore wideouts for Week 2 against Cincinnati, though.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) is officially inactive for today’s game vs. the Texans. That leaves Isaiah Likely as Baltimore’s lead TE. In two games without Andrews and with QB Lamar Jackson last season, Likely registered a 20% target share and receiving lines of 7-77-1 and 1-24-1. He’s in a new offense this year with more target competition for Baltimore’s WRs. But Likely still looks like a lower-end TE1 option for Week 1. Andrews’ absence also moves Rashod Bateman, Zay Flowers, and Odell Beckham up the WR rankings.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh likes what he's seen from WR Rashod Bateman (foot) in his first couple of practices since being activated from the PUP list. “I think we'll see as we go, but it's very promising right now," Harbaugh said. "He looked good to me, and I'm excited to see him out there. Obviously, it's big for us.” Bateman missed a ton of reps in new OC Todd Monken's offense this spring and summer. But he still has a month to go before the start of the season. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his health and standing in the offense.

The Ravens have activated WR Rashod Bateman from the physically unable to perform list, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. Bateman missed the first 12 practices of training camp while working back from the foot injury that ended his 2022 early. Bateman had an offseason setback that required a cortisone injection. We'll see how he progresses through the rest of August. Bateman has moved down our WR rankings since the start of camp, though.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec tweeted on Monday that Ravens WR Rashod Bateman was seen running on a side field at practice. This is the first time Bateman, who remains on the PUP list while recovering from offseason foot surgery, was seen doing such activity. Zrebiec also noted that Bateman was "moving pretty well," which may signal a potential return to workouts with the team. This isn't a massive update by any means, but when paired with HC John Harbaugh's comments at the end of last week that Bateman might be back soon, it's intriguing, if nothing else. Bateman's absence has (to some degree) allowed for the spotlight to be focused on rookie WR Zay Flowers in camp. As Flowers' star ascends, Bateman's appeal in fantasy continues to dwindle. We'll continue to monitor this situation as more information becomes available. Check out where Bateman sits in our current WR rankings.
