NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport believes QB Lamar Jackson will get the exclusive franchise tag. The exclusive tag would allow Baltimore to set the price in a potential deal, while the non-exclusive variety would net the team only two 1sts. Rapoport makes clear that a trade is unlikely, although such an outcome isn’t totally dismissed. An exclusive tag for Jackson would cost Baltimore roughly $45 million.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman is making good progress in his recovery from November foot surgery, HC John Harbaugh said Thursday. "He's going to be ready to soon run at full speed," Harbaugh said. Bateman flashed early this past year with 2-59-1 and 4-108-1 lines to open the season, but a Lisfranc injury to his left foot limited him to just 4 more games the rest of the way. It doesn't sound like that'll be an issue in 2023, though, setting up the 23-year-old Bateman as an intriguing post-hype sleeper. We'll see who Baltimore hires at OC and if that new OC opens up the passing game.

Ravens OC Greg Roman announced Thursday via management firm AthletesFirst that he's "stepping away from the team to pursue other opportunities." Roman's offenses obviously leaned heavily on the run across his 4 years in Baltimore, which made plenty of sense with Lamar Jackson at QB. But Roman's rushing lean predated that stint. All 6 of the previous offense for which he served as OC -- 4 in San Francisco, then 2 in Buffalo -- ranked among the league's top 9 in rushing attempts. Across his 10 years as a coordinator, just 3 Roman offenses ranked lower than 3rd in carries. Only 1 of those 10 finished lower than 4th in rushing yards, and that came back in 2011, his 1st season at the post with the 49ers. We'll see where Roman lands and who the Ravens select to follow him. Of course, the status of Jackson for 2023 and beyond will likely matter even more for projecting both the player and the Ravens offense. Jackson is set to hit unrestricted free agency in March, but we'd be surprised if Baltimore lets him hit the open market. Baltimore's offense promises to be 1 of the more intriguing storylines to watch this offseason.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews snagged 5 of 10 targets for 73 yards in Sunday’s loss to Cincinnati. He tallied chunk gains of 29 and 25 yards alongside a less-than-100% Tyler Huntley. Andrews, 28 in September, is under contract for 3 more seasons. We’ll see if the Ravens can lock up Lamar Jackson long-term.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins rushed 13 times for 62 yards in Sunday’s loss to Cincinnati. He saw only 1 more attempt than Gus Edwards (12-39) and added 4-43-1 as a receiver. Afterwords, Dobbins expressed frustration with the lack of carries. "I'm a guy who feels like I should be on the field all the time," Dobbins said. "It's the playoffs. Why am I not out there?” The 24-year-old was specifically referring to QB Tyler Huntley’s 4th-quarter fumble on a goal line sneak. 2023 turns up a contract year for Dobbins.

Ravens QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder, wrist) is active for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. NFL Network reported this morning that Huntley is expected to start but that Baltimore might also use QB Anthony Brown. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Stacey Dales reports that Ravens QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder, wrist) is expected to start tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. He's officially listed as questionable with a wrist issue and what's been reported as tendonitis in his throwing shoulder. Dales hears that Huntley "made good progress" throughout the week -- but adds that there's a "possibility" that QB Anthony Brown also plays tonight. This is a situation to steer clear of in fantasy lineups of all types.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (concussion) cleared the league's protocol and doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. This would be a pretty good spot for Ravens RBs in a world where QB Lamar Jackson was healthy and under center. The Bengals' defense ranks 22nd in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA over their last 4 games. Unfortunately, the offense isn't as strong with QB Tyler Huntley or rookie QB Anthony Brown as the starter. Edwards is a ho-hum RB2 that would need to find the end zone to really pay off for fantasy purposes. There are likely better options available for playoff contests.

Ravens QB Tyler Huntley (right shoulder, wrist) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. When asked on Friday, HC John Harbaugh declined to name a starter for this contest. Huntley himself said "it's a game-time decision" regarding his availability despite upgrading to full practice participation to end the week. Rookie QB Anthony Brown would be the starter should Huntley be inactive. Neither Huntley nor Brown are considering strong fantasy options this weekend.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (concussion) upgraded to limited participation in practice on Thursday. We'll see if he'll be cleared to play in Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. Check back tomorrow for more updates.

Ravens QB Tyler Huntley (right shoulder, wrist) logged limited practice again on Thursday. We'll get a better view of his availability for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates.

Ravens QB Tyler Huntley (right shoulder, wrist) practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday. As we shared earlier, it's looking pretty unlikely that we see QB Lamar Jackson in Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals, so the health of Huntley will be extremely important. Without Jackson or Huntley, the Ravens would be potentially forced to roll out UDFA rookie QB Anthony Brown again. We'll consider this possibility more as we receive updates on Huntley throughout the week.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he'll be able to log participation this week in advance of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. Be sure to check back for updates.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) is facing an "uphill battle" to play in Sunday night's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He is working, he is trying, he is rehabbing," Rapoport said. "The knee is just not quite right." Jackson went down on December 4 and was initially expected to miss no more than 3 weeks. He's now 5-and-a-half weeks removed from the injury. We'll get Baltimore's first practice report of the week later today, but it sounds like we should expect Tyler Huntley to be under center on Sunday night.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals with a head injury. Now in the concussion protocol, his availability for next weekend's Wild Card game is in question. We'll track his progress this coming week.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews is INACTIVE for today's game vs. the Bengals. Baltimore is clearly conceding this game, accepting its fate as the AFC's #6 seed. Assuming the Ravens don't somehow pull off a win here, the Chargers will be locked in as the AFC's #5 seed.

Ravens QB Tyler Huntley (right shoulder, wrist) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bengals. That leaves QB Anthony Brown under center. The undrafted rookie completed just 58% of his passes in college and went 3-of-5 for 16 yards in his only action this season back in Week 14. The Ravens passing game has little chance today.

The Ravens aren't expected to announce their starting QB for today's game vs. the Bengals until pregame warmups, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. QB Lamar Jackson (knee) is out, QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder, wrist) is officially questionable and QB Anthony Brown reportedly took 1st-team reps in practice this week. We'll try to find out who will be under center before kickoff, but this is obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins will not play against the Bengals today "and instead will begin focusing on next weekend’s wild-card game." Dobbins was not listed on this week's injury report but had the August 2021 ACL tear and surgery on that same knee this October. Assuming he didn't suffer a setback over the past couple of days, Dobbins should be busy in next weekend's Wild Card game. His absence today figures to leave Gus Edwards as Baltimore's lead ball carrier, with Justice Hill and Kenyan Drake behind him.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson's status for the playoffs is "up in the air," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jackson still hasn't practiced since going down with a sprained PCL on December 4. He reportedly thinks he'll be ready to go next weekend, but the team isn't sure. Jackson's knee is "still not feeling quite right," Rapoport hears. "And because of the way Jackson plays the QB position, because of how active he is, because of how athletic he is, he needs that knee to be 100%." Jackson's status will be the biggest storyline of next week, leading up to the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
