The Ravens expect QB Lamar Jackson (knee, illness), TE Mark Andrews (thigh) and WR Marquise Brown (knee) to play against the Bengals today. All were listed as questionable, but you should expect to have them in your fantasy football lineups. We'll confirm their statuses with the inactives come out.
Ravens DE Derek Wolfe is officially questionable vs. the Bengals on Sunday, listed with an elbow injury. He put in full workouts Wednesday and Thursday before missing Friday. The elbow issue is a carryover from the previous week, but HC John Harbaugh revealed Friday that Wolfe missed the win over Washington because of COVID-like symptoms with the DE and his wife. Wolfe did not turn out to have COVID and should be ready to play against Cincinnati. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning.
Ravens CB Marcus Peters (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Peters put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
The Ravens list WR Marquise Brown (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he's clearly on track to play. But it's at least notable because it's the 1st time Brown is on the injury report this season. He's a risk/reward Week 5 fantasy play.
Ravens TE Mark Andrews (thigh) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bengals. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday's practice. We haven't heard anything to suggest that Andrews is in danger of missing this one, but check back around noon ET on Sunday to make sure Andrews is active.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bengals. He sat on Wednesday with a knee issue and Thursday with an illness — both reportedly minor — and then put in a full workout on Friday. Pencil Jackson into Week 5 fantasy lineups for now. Just check back at noon ET on Sunday to make sure he’s active.
Ravens TE Mark Andrews was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a thigh issue. Tomorrow's practice report and final designation will tell us how worried we need to be about Andrews. Stay tuned.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. Insider Jason La Canfora confirms that Jackson is still expected to play against the Bengals this weekend, but it's clear that he won't be at 100%. It's probably reason enough to fade him in DFS -- but an active Jackson remains a strong season-long starter.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson didn't practice Wednesday, and the team lists him with a knee issue. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, however, that the Ravens aren't concerned and that the move was for "precautionary reasons." We'll certainly watch his status leading up to Sunday's game against Cincinnati, but plan to have Jackson available for your fantasy football lineup.
Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (concussion, neck) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Ravens. He put in a full practice on Saturday, though, so he seems likely to play. Watkins remains tough to trust in fantasy lineups, and his presence also knocks WR Mecole Hardman out of consideration.
Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (concussion, neck) returned to a limited practice on Friday. That gives him a shot to play against the Ravens on Monday night. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status.
Chiefs HC Andy Reid confirmed that WR Sammy Watkins is in the concussion protocol and revealed that Watkins is also dealing with a neck injury. That obviously makes him iffy for Monday night's showdown with the Ravens. Watkins' absence would turn WR Mecole Hardman into a legit fantasy option.
Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins left in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Chargers after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit. He's presumably getting checked for a concussion. We'll pass along an update on Watkins when we get one.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh said RB J.K. Dobbins will have a "significant" role this season. We'll need to wait for Week 1 to see exactly what that means, but we've been expecting the rookie to be a fantasy factor all offseason. Dobbins remains a recommended target in the 6th or 7th round of fantasy drafts.
Ravens WR Miles Boykin caught just 13 balls as a rookie last year. But WRs coach David Culley likes the growth he's seen from Boykin this offseason. "Basically, I’m starting to see right now ... that he’s starting show his 6-4, 225, because he’s comfortable in our system," Culley said. "He knows what we’re doing right now. He’s playing much faster and he’s playing stronger." Boykin is in line to be in Baltimore's starting lineup opposite WR Marquise Brown this season. He'll likely be 3rd in line for targets (behind Brown and TE Mark Andrews) in a run-heavy offense, so weekly consistency might be tough to come by. But we like him as a late-round flier in best-ball drafts.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson was back on the practice field on Monday, as expected. He missed a couple of days with a groin injury, but it shouldn't be an issue going forward, barring a setback. We didn't move Jackson in the QB rankings.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson missed the past 2 days of practice while dealing with a groin injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. HC John Harbaugh would call it only a "soft-tissue" injury, and the team reportedly expects Jackson to return to the field Monday. So this doesn't look like a reason to alter your draft-day outlook for Jackson. It will certainly be a situation worth monitoring, though.
Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins has missed the past few days of practice with a groin injury. No word on the severity, but Watkins has obviously had trouble staying healthy throughout his career. We'll let you know when he's able to get back on the field.
