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 TE Mark Andrews (quad) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He put in a full practice on Friday and should be ready for his usual role today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) is expected to play vs. the Bengals today. He was a full participant in Friday's practice and should be ready for a full workload today.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals. He was upgraded to full participation in Friday's practice, though, seemingly putting him on track to play. We'll get Baltimore's inactives around 11:30 am on Sunday. An active Andrews will be a must-start in fantasy lineups.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) remained limited in Thursday's practice. His status for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals is still uncertain. Check back tomorrow to see how Andrews is listed on the final injury report.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited in all three practices last week before missing the Texans game, so this doesn't tell us much about his Week 2 availability. We'll update Andrews' status again tomorrow.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday that S Marcus Williams will "be out for a while" with the pectoral injury he suffered Sunday, according to multiple reports. Harbaugh said Williams is considering surgery and that the injury doesn't necessarily end his season. That it even could, though, makes Williams droppable in nearly all IDP leagues. We've already removed him from our rest-of-season rankings. Geno Stone filled in for Williams against the Texans and figures to start next to Kyle Hamilton going forward. Stone has spent most of his time at deep safety -- likely Williams -- which limits his fantasy upside. Hamilton remains the more intriguing IDP because of his higher snap count "in the box." A trailing Houston offense went pass-heavy in the opener, sending tackle opportunities further downfield. Brandon Stephens, who you might see listed as a safety, started at CB for Baltimore in the opener. He can also be an IDP option if you lost Williams.

Titans RB Derrick Henry assumed his usual role as the clear carry leader in Sunday's loss to the Saints. Henry rushed 15 times (for 63 yards), while rookie Tyjae Spears claimed the other 3 RB carries. Spears picked up 27 yards, including a long gain of 17. He also factored significantly into the receiving game. Spears' 4 targets edged Henry's 3, and the rookie had a fifth negated by a defensive penalty. Spears logged just 1 catch (officially) for 1 yard. Henry caught 2 of 3 looks for 56 yards, delivering the team's longest play with a 46-yard catch-and-run. Spears also notably drew a target on each of Tennessee's first two third-down plays. The rookie has to grow his role further to become a standalone fantasy option, but this was a decent start. Henry gets a better matchup with the Chargers in Week 2.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson threw for just 169 yards on 17-of-22 passing in Sunday's win over the Texans. He added 38 yards on 6 carries to lead the team in rushing but didn't score via run or pass. Jackson did throw an INT and take 4 sacks. Baltimore RBs accounted for all 3 TDs, with Justice Hill scoring twice after J.K. Dobbins' Achilles' injury. (Dobbins scored the other TD.) It was a disappointing fantasy day for Jackson, but there's no reason for concern on that front going forward.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely drew just 1 target in Sunday's win over the Texans, despite TE Mark Andrews being inactive. Likely caught that lone target for 4 yards. TE Charlie Kolar also drew 1 target, which fell incomplete. QB Lamar Jackson attempted just 22 passes. Only WR Zay Flowers (10 targets) drew more than 3 targets. Don't plan to use Likely in Week 2, even if Andrews remains out.

Ravens WR Zay Flowers drew 10 targets among QB Lamar Jackson's 22 pass attempts in Sunday's easy victory over the Texans. Flowers caught nine of them for 78 yards (8.7 yards per catch). Rashod Bateman and Odell Beckham Jr. garnered 3 targets apiece, tying RB J.K. Dobbins for second on the team (and Dobbins went down in the third quarter). We'll see whether target distribution continues to look similar. Flowers at least looks like the clear top choice among Baltimore wideouts for Week 2 against Cincinnati, though.

Ravens RB Justice Hill delivered 2 rushing TDs in Sunday's win over the Texans. His 8 carries tied J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards for the team lead, with 7 of those coming after Dobbins suffered a torn Achilles' tendon. Hill managed just 9 yards on his 8 attempts, splitting work evenly with Edwards after Dobbins went down. Edwards took his 8 carries for 32 yards and added a two-point conversion run. The two appear likely to split the backfield going forward, and we'd bet on the Ravens adding another RB.

Ravens S Marcus Williams injured his left shoulder in Sunday's game against the Texans and was ruled out shortly thereafter. We'll see about the severity. Williams lost seven games to a dislocated wrist last year, his first with Baltimore.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) is officially inactive for today’s game vs. the Texans. That leaves Isaiah Likely as Baltimore’s lead TE. In two games without Andrews and with QB Lamar Jackson last season, Likely registered a 20% target share and receiving lines of 7-77-1 and 1-24-1. He’s in a new offense this year with more target competition for Baltimore’s WRs. But Likely still looks like a lower-end TE1 option for Week 1. Andrews’ absence also moves Rashod Bateman, Zay Flowers, and Odell Beckham up the WR rankings.

On Saturday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported that Ravens TE Mark Andrews "is not likely to play" in Week 1 vs. the Texans. The veteran has dealt with a quad issue for a while and logged limited practice all week leading up to the 2023 season opener. Fantasy managers looking for a replacement should jump on the waiver wire now. Backup TE Isaiah Likely is an appealing option of note, as he's now the TE10 in our Week 1 rankings. Check those out before making a final decision.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s opener vs. the Texans. HC John Harbaugh has been coy on Andrews’ status all week. We’re tentatively projecting him to play on Sunday, but check back around 11:30 am ET for Baltimore’s inactives.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's seemingly on track to play in this weekend's opener vs. the Texans, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (quad) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's reportedly been dealing with this issue for about a week now, but the limited practice early in the week seemingly puts Andrews on track to play vs. the Texans on Sunday.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews has missed the last six practices with an undisclosed injury, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. Andrews is expected back on Wednesday for Baltimore's first official practice ahead of Week 1. “We’re still on 'don’t push the panic button',” HC John Harbaugh said. We're not adjusting Andrews' season-long or Week 1 projections right now but will keep a close eye on him heading into Sunday's opener vs. the Texans.

Ravens GM Eric DeCosta gushed about QB Lamar Jackson's standing heading into the season opener. "Lamar’s attitude has been excellent this year," DeCosta said. "I think last year was a challenging year for a lot of reasons, obviously, just where he was with his contract. This year, his enthusiasm has been fantastic. He’s throwing the ball very, very well. He’s been able to build a great rapport with the WRs very, very quickly. He’s taking care of his body. He seems really into the offense – he's excited about it. He has an awesome relationship with his coaches, and he worked very hard this offseason." With a pass-happier OC and significantly upgraded WR corps, Jackson's 2023 fantasy upside extends to the top of the QB position.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec writes that Ravens RB Justice Hill's stock is up. "You no longer should be asking whether Hill is a lock to make the team," Zrebiec adds. "It’s probably more pertinent to ask whether he’ll have a notable role on offense. He’s earned it with how he’s practiced this summer and played in the preseason." Hill has turned six preseason touches into 86 total yards, while playing ahead of RB Gus Edwards in the first exhibition. We still don't expect Hill to have tangible fantasy value behind a healthy RB J.K. Dobbins. But Hill might be the Ravens RB to own if Dobbins misses time.
