Baltimore Ravens 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 QB Lamar Jackson (knee) opened the week listed as a DNP on Wednesday's practice report. Ravens HC John Harbaugh said, "I’m just going to leave all that stuff alone and focus on the game and have the guys ready for the game," when asked about Jackson. That's not a particularly encouraging quote to hear from a coach about their QB. Fantasy managers should probably expect backup QB Tyler Huntley to once again get the nod in Week 18 vs. the Bengals.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hip) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice. It's confirmation that he'll be ready for roll for Saturday's must-win game vs. the Jaguars.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that he's still not sure if QB Lamar Jackson (knee) will be ready to play vs. the Bengals this weekend. "I don’t have an expectation until I hear more today,” Harbaugh said. "I’m just going to listen to the doctors and to Lamar and we’re prepared." The Ravens have clinched a playoff spot, but the Bengals would lock up the AFC North title with a win over the Bills tonight. That might ultimately impact whether Jackson plays this weekend. Stay tuned.

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.

The Ravens are being "extra cautious" in continuing to hold QB Lamar Jackson out with his knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team does expect Jackson back at least for the start of the playoffs, Rapoport adds. We'll continue to monitor Jackson's progress.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 17 contest vs. the Steelers. Fantasy managers will once again look to backup QB Tyler Huntley as the leader of the Ravens' offense. Huntley is a low-end QB2 option that only warrants consideration in superflex leagues. He's only exceeded 15 fantasy points once since taking over in Week 13 vs. the Browns. It's hard to trust a guy like that with a fantasy title on the line.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) didn't practice again on Thursday. Backup QB Tyler Huntley is looking like he'll get the nod again for Week 17 vs. the Steelers. We'll let you know if anything changes tomorrow.

As expected, Titans RB Derrick Henry (hip) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Cowboys. He'd be playing if this game meant anything to Tennessee and will be back out there for the finale against Jacksonville. Rookie Hassan Haskins is expected to operate as Tennessee's lead back tonight but should be considered just a low-upside RB3 in fantasy lineups. The Titans are implied for 13.25 points.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero has confirmed what we all suspected: that the team "fully" expects RB Derrick Henry to be ready for full use against the Jaguars in Week 18. Henry is doubtful for tonight's game against the Cowboys, listed with a hip issue. But he finished the week with 2 limited practices. He's clearly just being held out of a game that has no bearing on the Titans' playoff hopes. Pelissero added that rookie RB Hassan Haskins is in for a big role and didn't mention RB Julius Chestnut in his report. So Haskins sounds like the guy if you need a Titans runner. We wouldn't go out of our way to target this situation, however, in what Vegas projects to be the lowest-scoring offense of Week 17.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. Jackson is still reeling from an injury that has kept him out since Week 13. It remains to be seen if we will see Jackson in Week 17 action vs. the Steelers on Sunday night. The practice week is still early though. We'll know more by tomorrow.

The Titans list RB Derrick Henry as doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Cowboys. He has been listed with a hip issue all week but put in limited practices Tuesday and Wednesday after sitting out Monday. This is clearly a move by the Titans to save up some key players for a Week 18 meeting with the Jaguars that will determine whether they make the playoffs. With Henry out and Dontrell Hilliard already on IR, the Titans will turn to Hassan Haskins and Julius Chestnut. With 11 and 5 carries for the season, respectively -- 7 and 2 targets -- neither is a strong bet to grab the clear backfield lead. Try to avoid this offense altogether in your Week 17 fantasy football lineups.

Tennessee's Week 18 game against the Jaguars will determine the AFC South champion. The Titans can't get a Wild Card spot, which makes their game vs. the Cowboys on Thursday night meaningless. Jim Wyatt of the team's official website believe the Titans will hold out some starters out of that one. The big question, of course, is whether that will include RB Derrick Henry. We'll keep you updated on the situation. If Henry is held out, rookie Hassan Haskins would step in as Tennessee's lead back and enter the RB3/Flex conversation.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh wouldn't say Monday if he expects to get QB Lamar Jackson (knee) back for Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers. "We'll just have to see," Harbaugh said when asked if Jackson will practice this week. The Ravens clinched a playoff spot with the Week 16 win over the Falcons but are still fighting for the AFC North title, needing to win the final 2 games to wrap it up. We'll keep you updated on Jackson's status throughout the week.

Titans RB Derrick Henry (hip) was listed as a non-participant at practice on Monday. The Titans are set to face the Cowboys on Thursday night in Week 16. With the quick turnaround, it'll be essential to see Henry log some participation soon. However, this injury didn't seem to affect the veteran on Saturday vs. the Texans. That certainly bodes well for his Week 17 availability. We'll keep an eye on this as we get closer to Thursday.

Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 23 times for 126 yards and a TD in Saturday's loss to the Texans. That marked a disappointing performance vs. his previous 4 meetings with the Texans, each of which found Henry exceeding 210 rushing yards and scoring at least 2 TDs. But it's tough to complain about the big guy averaging 5.5 yards per rush against a defense that knew he was coming the whole time. Henry boosted that by scoring his TD from 48 yards out, meaning that he averaged 3.5 yards on his other 22 attempts. He gets a tougher matchup with the Cowboys on Thursday night of Week 17.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews led the team in targets (5), receptions (3) and receiving yards (45) in Sunday's win over the Falcons. But he didn't have much chance to deliver truly helpful fantasy football stats. Baltimore attempted just 17 passes for the game. QB Tyler Huntley completed 9 of those for 115 yards and 1 TD. We'll see whether QB Lamar Jackson can make it back for a Week 17 home date with the Steelers.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson's status for Week 17 remains uncertain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jackson has yet to practice since going down with a sprained PCL in Week 13. He's been doing some straight-line running, per Rapoport, and is expected to get back on the field for "football-related movements" this coming week. But whether he plays vs. the Steelers next weekend will depend on how that knee responds and Baltimore's standing in the playoff race. Jackson is more likely to play if the Ravens lose to the Falcons today, which would leave a playoff spot still in doubt. Stay tuned.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) did not practice again on Wednesday. Backup Tyler Huntley (right shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion after not appearing on the injury report on Tuesday. It seems fantasy managers should not anticipate having Jackson available. The troubling issue here is that it's unclear who will start on Saturday vs. the Falcons given the Huntley development. Check back tomorrow once we learn more.

Titans RB Derrick Henry was listed as a DNP on the injury report on Wednesday with an undisclosed "non-injury related" designation. Henry had been listed as limited on Tuesday, so this is a bit odd. It is hard to give fantasy advice based on this little information. We'll keep you posted as we learn more about this news.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) did not practice on Tuesday. The former MVP is still dealing with an injury that has kept him out since Week 13. Wednesday’s report will be telling as to whether or not we will see Jackson in action vs. the Falcons on Saturday. Jackson would be considered a top 10 option at the position for fantasy if he does play. Check back as we learn more information.
