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 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 TE Mark Andrews injured his left ankle on the opening possession of Thursday night's game vs. the Bengals. He was able to limp off the field under his own power and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more. Isaiah Likely will take over as Baltimore's lead TE for however long Andrews is out.

Update: Andrews went into the x-ray room on crutches, according to the Prime TV broadcast. Don't expect to see him back out there tonight.

Update: Andrews has officially been ruled out.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that he wishes RB Keaton Mitchell had gotten more touches in the Week 10 loss to the Browns -- and that it's something he'll look to correct in Thursday night's game vs. the Bengals. “Looking back on it, would we have wanted him out there more? Yeah. And think that'll factor into this game plan," Harbaugh said. Mitchell finished the Browns game with just three carries and two targets. One of the carries went for a 39-yard TD, and his only catch went for 32 yards. We'll see exactly how much Mitchell's role expands going forward. He remains an exciting stash but would be tough to trust in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews caught just two passes for 44 yards among 4 targets in Sunday's loss to the Browns. Baltimore attempted only 23 passes for the game, though, and ran a mere 50 offensive plays. (They averaged 64.7 per game entering Sunday.) The performance also came against Cleveland's No. 1 rated defense in both pass DVOA and overall DVOA. And if you're thinking that playing Andrews in such a matchup was a mistake, remember that he posted a 5-80-2 receiving line in the first meeting. Baltimore attempted just 19 passes in that meeting. Andrews remains a weekly fantasy starter across matchups.

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 RB Keaton Mitchell ran three times for 34 yards and caught 1 of 2 targets for 32 more yards in Sunday's loss to the Browns. The rookie scored on the ground for the second straight week, and both scores have come from 39+ yards out. That points to the home-run speed Mitchell brings to every touch. But we also can't bet on him scoring regularly from long distance. Don't let the two straight games with a TD mask the mere 10 and 4 touches Mitchell has logged. There' might be some sell potential here if you snagged Mitchell off waivers this week and see a RB-needy team in your league. Week 11 includes byes for Jonathan Taylor, Alvin Kamara, Rhamondre Stevenson and Bijan Robinson.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Browns. He'll carry some re-injury risk and isn't a high-level IDP play. But his presence helps the Baltimore D.

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Browns. He was added to the injury report on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday, so we’re not expecting the hamstring to be a problem.

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Browns on Sunday, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Mitchell was added to the injury report on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. The hamstring shouldn't be an issue tomorrow. Mitchell's role remains uncertain, though, and the matchup is tough against Cleveland's fourth-ranked RB defense. See where the rookie sits in the Week 10 RB Rankings.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns after sustaining a hamstring injury during the practice week. He saw limited work Thursday and Friday. Missing Humphrey would leave Baltimore without its top cover guy. The Ravens will have S Marcus Williams, though. He practiced in full all week and is off the final injury report after missing the past three contests with a hamstring injury.

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Browns. He was added to the injury report on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. The rookie should play be available this weekend, but check back around 11:30 am ET on Sunday when we get Baltimore’s inactives.

Much has been made of Titans QB Will Levis' arm strength -- and for good reason. That's arguably been his biggest selling point since he was a prospect. And we saw it pay off in three long TD passes in Levis' initial start. But his first two outings have also featured the two largest collective target shares all season for Titans RBs. Tennessee targeted RBs on 20.3% of pass attempts over the season's first six games. That has jumped to 26.5% over the past two weeks. We'll see whether things stay that way with more Levis games. But it's at least a help to the opportunity counts for both Derrick Henry and Tyjae Spears for now. That can only help Henry in this week's matchup with the Bucs, who have been tougher on RB scoring than on opponent passing games.

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with a hamstring. That usually means the player was injured in practice. We'll see if Mitchell is able to get on the field tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Browns.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that he expects to keep RBs Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and Keaton Mitchell involved going forward. “Those three backs are gonna be all playing a lot," Harbaugh said. "I’m sure there will be a rotation.” Harbaugh added that snaps will be determined by which RB has the hot hand and who's not tired, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. Mitchell certainly earned a role going forward with his 138-yard, one-TD effort in the win over Seattle. Note that, before QB Lamar Jackson was pulled in the fourth quarter, Mitchell and Hill had both tallied eight opportunities (carries + targets) to Edwards' five. If this is truly a three-way split, it'll be tough to count on any of these guys as more than RB3 or flex plays. We'll keep a close eye on the backfield usage this weekend.

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 RB Justice Hill tallied a team-high 13 carries in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. He took those for just 40 yards (3.1 per rush), though, ranking fourth on the team in that category. Don't read too much into that workload, though. Hill, Gus Edwards, and rookie Keaton Mitchell all finished the first half with 4 carries. Edwards ran just one more time after the break before sitting out the rest of the game. Mitchell led Hill 9-8 in carries before Hill claimed the team's final 5 RB rushing attempts of the game. That came with QB Tyler Huntley in the game, after Baltimore pulled Lamar Jackson amid a lopsided victory. Hill also drew just a single target, which fell incomplete. It was Mitchell's first game of significant use. And we're guessing the Ravens took the opportunity to rest Edwards for the second half because of the toe issue that kept him out of Wednesday's practice. Hill will need to do more to become a fantasy option again. Mitchell looks more interesting for Week 10 waivers.

Bet you didn't guess who would lead the Ravens in rushing yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. Undrafted rookie RB Keaton Mitchel racked up 138 yards and a TD on 9 carries in the lopsided victory. The speedster delivered a 40-yard TD sprint in the third quarter, as well as a 60-yard fourth-quarter run. Mitchell logged his final 2 carries in the fourth quarter, after QB Tyler Huntley had entered the game. But he finished the first half tied with RBs Gus Edwards and Justice Hill at 4 carries. Mitchell finished 4 carries ahead of Edwards for the game and led Hill as well before Hill handled the team's final 5 RB rushing attempts. This should be enough to keep Mitchell involved going forward. If he stays involved to the same degree he did against Seattle, this will become a frustrating backfield to project and use in fantasy football lineups. Baltimore gets a negative RB-scoring matchup with Cleveland in Week 10, so you'll probably want to keep Ravens RBs out of your lineup. A more neutral spot against Cincinnati follows before an upside matchup with the Chargers. Let's hope for role clarity at least ahead of that one.

Ravens S Marcus Williams (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Seahawks. That's not great news for Baltimore's secondary, but Williams has missed more games than he has played this year and been less than 100% even on the field at other times. S Geno Stone has played well in Williams' absence.

Titans RB Derrick Henry posted 22 carries for 101 rushing yards in Week 8’s victory over the Falcons. The veteran also added 4 catches for 21 receiving yards on Sunday. His teammate Tyjae Spears was essentially an afterthought in the contest, tallying 6 total touches for a combined 36 yards. Conflicting reports have swirled regarding whether or not Henry will remain with the Titans following Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline. Regardless of where he suits up next week, he’ll be a solid fantasy starter. The Titans next play on Thursday night vs. the Steelers.

The Ravens have ruled S Marcus Williams (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals
