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 LB Roquan Smith sat out Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury. We didn't see any report of the issue coming out of Sunday's win over the Lions. Smith did play 89% of snaps as opposed to his usual 100%. But so did four other usual full-timers before leaving the blowout victory early. We'll track Smith's status through the week.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews found the end zone twice on Sunday vs. the Lions, with catches on 4 of 6 targets for 63 yards. WR Zay Flowers was also productive in the contest, hauling 4 of 6 targets catches for 75 receiving yards. This was a rather impressive performance from the Ravens’ offense considering how tough the Lions’ defense has been to open 2023. We like their odds of continuing their dominance next week vs. the lowly Cardinals.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson posted MVP-like numbers in Week 7’s win vs. the Lions, completing 21 of 27 passes for 357 yards with 3 TDs. He also added 36 rushing yards and a TD on the ground in the contest. Jackson’s 33.9 fantasy points on Sunday are his highest total in a game since Week 3 of 2022 vs. the Patriots (39.4). This game was also the first time Jackson has thrown for 3 or more TDs since that aforementioned showdown vs. the Patriots one year ago. We like his chances of having another stellar outing in Week 8 vs. the Cardinals.

The Ravens have ruled S Marcus Williams (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Lions. That leaves S Geno Stone to start in his place. Stone has been the better fantasy producer between them on the season. You can now find him in our Week 7 DB rankings.

Ravens S Marcus Williams left Sunday's win over the Titans with a hamstring injury. We'll watch for more on his status ahead of a Week 7 matchup with Detroit.

Ravens WR Zay Flowers logged 6 catches for 50 receiving yards on Sunday vs. the Titans. The rookie also recorded his first career TD in the second quarter of the contest. TE Mark Andrews recorded a team-high 69 receiving yards with 4 catches on 6 targets in Week 6. The Ravens’ passing game hasn’t been explosive thus far in 2023, but Flowers and Andrews routinely deliver fantasy-viable production weekly. They’ll go up against the Lions in Week 7.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson completed 21 of 30 passes for 223 yards with 1 TD and INT apiece in Week 6’s win vs. the Titans. He also led the contest with 62 yards on 13 carries. Though Jackson has yet to exceed 250 passing yards in a game in 2023, his rushing output is excellently sustaining his fantasy value. The former MVP leads all QBs with 327 rushing yards and ranks tied for first at the position with 4 rushing TDs this season. Next weekend, Jackson will square off against the Lions in Week 7.

Titans RB Derrick Henry shined as the lone bright spot in Week 6’s loss vs. the Ravens. The veteran received 12 carries for 97 rushing yards and a TD in the contest. Though his teammate RB Tyjae Spears didn’t cut into the Titans’ rushing workload much this week (4 carries, 15 yards), the rookie led all pass-catchers with 48 receiving yards on Sunday. No other Titan amassed more than 25 yards or exceeded 3 catches. This wasn’t a banner showing for the Tennessee offense, especially with QB Ryan Tannehill being hampered by an ankle issue. Fortunately, they’ll be headed into a bye week in Week 7.

Ravens S Kyle Hamilton got ejected midway through the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Titans after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Titans WR Chris Moore. The play clearly earned the personal-foul call, but Hamilton's ejection seemed to surprise everyone. We wouldn't bet on it costing him further game time.

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (shoulder) is active for this morning's game against the Titans. The rookie makes his NFL debut alongside Justice Hill and Gus Edwards in Baltimore's backfield. Mitchell shouldn't be in season-long fantasy lineups but might be worth stashing in deeper leagues as we monitor his role.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey is active for today's game against the Steelers. That marks his first appearance of the season amid a foot injury. The return of the defense's top corner obviously helps the group on whole. Humphrey doesn't make for a top IDP play this week.

Ravens RB Justice Hill (foot, hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Steelers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. But Hill is a risky fantasy play after totaling just three carries on seven snaps last week.

Ravens S Marcus Williams looks ready to play for the first time since suffering a pectoral injury in Week 1. He put in full practices all week and was left off the final injury report. That should knock S Geno Stone back out of the lineup. CB Marlon Humphrey (foot) might be ready to return as well. He put in a full practice Friday after two limited workouts. Humphrey remains questionable for the game, though. We'll see about his status over the weekend.

Ravens RB Justice Hill (foot, hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Steelers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so he should play. But Hill would be a risky fantasy start after totaling just three carries on seven snaps last week.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. Bateman totaled just seven catches for 59 scoreless yards over the first three weeks of the season and isn't a recommended Week 5 fantasy play.

Ravens RB Justice Hill was limited in Wednesday's practice with foot and hamstring injuries. He played just seven snaps with the foot injury last week and now has this hamstring issue. We'll see what Hill does in practice over the next couple of days, but he's not looking like a good Week 5 fantasy play.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. Bateman totaled just seven catches on nine targets through the first three games of the season and can't be trusted in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Titans RB Derrick Henry dominated the RB workshare in Week 4 vs. the Bengals. The veteran back recorded 22 carries for 122 yards and 1 rushing TD in a game where his rookie teammate Tyjae Spears saw just 6 attempts. To make matters even better, fantasy managers got a bonus passing TD from Henry off of a trick play at the end of the second quarter. Spears had recently been eating into Henry’s workload and playing a considerable number of snaps, so we’ll see if this is more of a fluke or a trend next week vs. the Colts.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews found the end zone twice on Sunday, hauling all 5 targets for 80 yards in the victory vs. the Browns. Rookie WR Zay Flowers had a quiet day, though 3 catches on 4 targets for 56 yards are respectable totals. The Ravens’ passing attack has yet to go full throttle this season, though Week 5 vs. the Steelers will be a good spot for these pass-catchers to thrive.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson recorded 2 passing TDs and 2 rushing TDs against the Browns in Week 4. The former MVP completed 15 of 19 attempts for 187 passing yards and ran the ball for 27 yards on the ground in the victory. Despite missing WRs Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashod Bateman, Jackson put up a classic fantasy superstar performance. Next week, he’ll have a chance to post big numbers against a struggling Steelers defense in Pittsburgh.
