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 S Kyle Hamilton (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Jaguars. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Ravens S Kyle Hamilton suffered a low-grade MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Rams. HC John Harbaugh told reporters Monday that Hamilton "looks like he'll be day-to-day" and added that "he'll have a chance to play" Sunday against the Jaguars. If Hamilton can't go, S Geno Stone would gain playing time.

Ravens S Kyle Hamilton left Sunday's game against the Rams in the first half with a knee injury and did not return. We'll see about his status heading into a Week 15 trip to Jacksonville.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Hamilton will have an MRI Monday.

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.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel said Monday afternoon that RB Derrick Henry is not in the concussion protocol, contrary to what ESPN's Adam Schefter reported this morning. "We checked on him last night, then checked on him in the morning," Vrabel said. We'll keep an eye on Henry throughout the week, but it sounds like he should be available for next Monday night's game vs. the Dolphins.

Titans RB Derrick Henry has been placed in concussion protocol, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's the first documented concussion for Henry, and he has an extra day to get cleared with Tennessee playing Miami next Monday night. But he's still more likely than not to miss that game. Henry's absence would leave rookie Tyjae Spears as the Titans' clear lead back -- and a comfortable fantasy starter.

Titans RB Derrick Henry exited in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Colts to get checked for a concussion and did not return. That likely means he's been diagnosed with a concussion, although that hasn't been confirmed by the team. We'll update Henry's status when we know more. His absence would turn RB Tyjae Spears into an easy fantasy starter.

Ravens DL Justin Madubuike entered the league concussion protocol after Sunday night's win over the Chargers. Fortunately for his return timeline, Baltimore gets a Week 13 bye. We'll watch Madubuike's status heading into a Week 14 home date with the Rams. Most players have made it back after missing a single game this season.

Sunday night saw an interesting shift occur in the Ravens’ backfield. Rookie RB Keaton Mitchell led the team with 64 rushing yards on 9 carries in Week 12 vs. the Chargers. Mitchell also roped in 2 catches for 25 yards as a pass-catcher. His teammate Gus Edwards wasn’t too far behind in the box score (8 carries, 26 yards), but the veteran appeared on 26.7% of Baltimore’s offensive snaps. By contrast, Mitchell saw a season-high 46.4% snap rate and played on 59.5% of the Ravens’ early downs. Has Mitchell become the Ravens’ RB1? It’s tough to say as of now, and they are set to go on bye in Week 13. Still, this’ll be a situation worth monitoring approaching the fantasy playoffs.

Ravens WR Zay Flowers (hip) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Chargers. He was sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full practice on Friday and told reporters that he’d play in this one. Flowers seems safe to get into fantasy lineups against the Chargers’ 29th-ranked WR defense.

Titans RB Derrick Henry took advantage of a plus matchup with Carolina in Week 12. The veteran tallied two short-range TDs and a modest 4.2 YPC (18 attempts), but note that two of his rushes came from the 1 yard-line. Henry also topped 9,000 career rushing yards in today’s effort. Next up: A favorable home matchup with Indianapolis. Beyond that, Henry’s schedule remains without a problematic spot.

Ravens WRs Zay Flowers (hip) and Odell Beckham (shoulder) are expected to play vs. the Chargers tonight. Both guys were full participants in Friday's practice. Flowers expressed no concern about the hip on Friday and seems safe to get into Week 12 fantasy lineups. Beckham, on the other hand, admitted that he'll be playing through pain. There's likely re-injury risk if he takes a hit or lands hard on that injured shoulder.

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 Zay Flowers (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Chargers. He returned to a full practice on Friday after being sidelined on Thursday and told reporters that he’ll play. We’ll look for further updates on Flowers’ status, but he can stay penciled into Week 12 fantasy lineups for now. The matchup is awesome against the Chargers’ 29th-ranked WR defense.

Ravens WR Zay Flowers (hip) went from a limited practice on Wednesday to no practice on Thursday. It looks like he hurt his hip on Wednesday and is in danger of missing Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. We'll see if Flowers is able to practice tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

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 TE Mark Andrews will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair his injured ankle, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. "Andrews is likely out for the year, though as John Harbaugh said, there’s a chance he could return if Baltimore makes a deep playoff run," Garafolo adds. Andrews can be dropped from all redraft rosters.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that TE Mark Andrews' ankle injury wasn't as bad as initially feared, according to Luke Jones of WNST in Baltimore. "There might be an outside chance he could get back at some point in time," the coach added. Andrews reportedly still needs to meet with a foot specialist to learn more about his recovery timeline. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says "it would have to be a deep playoff run" to give Andrews a chance to return. Dropping Andrews this week in your redraft league -- unfortunately -- looks like the right move.
