Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (knee) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He missed practice time this week with a knee problem and an illness, but neither seemed like a serious issue. Keep him locked into fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Ravens CB Marcus Peters (questionable, thigh) is "ready to rock" for today's game against the Bengals. He'll be a boom-bust option for IDP lineups.

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.

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.

Ravens DE Derek Wolfe is inactive for today's game at Washington with an elbow injury. That should push Jihad Ward into the starting lineup.

Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He missed practice Thursday and Friday with a calf injury and doesn't look like a good bet for IDP lineups this weekend. We'll update his status Sunday morning.

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 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.

Jaguars TE Josh Oliver broke his foot in Sunday's practice, HC Doug Marrone announced. Oliver will undergo surgery on Tuesday and figures to miss a big chunk of the season. He's off the redraft radar. Oliver's absence basically guarantees that Tyler Eifert will open the season as Jacksonville's lead TE. He's worth a look at the end of fantasy drafts.

Update: Oliver has been placed on IR and will miss the 2020 season.

ESPN's David Newton believes RB Mike Davis "might have the edge" for the Panthers' #2 RB job. His competition is Reggie Bonnafon and Jordan Scarlett. The battle is irrelevant as long as RB Christian McCaffrey is healthy, of course. We wouldn't bother spending a pick to "handcuff" CMC at this point.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley says Ravens rookie RB J.K. Dobbins will "be the primary backup in 2020 to Mark Ingram." Backup is probably the wrong word for this description, but we certainly won't be surprised if Dobbins opens his debut season running behind Ingram. The veteran didn't miss a game last season until Baltimore's meaningless finale, while averaging 5.0 yards per carry and 9.5 yards per catch for the year. We do, however, project the rookie to outscore Ingram -- who will turn 31 in December -- in fantasy for the season.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh sees more deep passes as the next evolution in QB Lamar Jackson's game. "Those corners are going to be one-on-one and those safeties are going to be one-on-one against receivers, especially on some downfield throws, and we got to make them pay for it. We absolutely have to make them pay," Harbaugh said. "The ability to make them pay for tilting their defense toward stopping our run game with a really, really efficient passing game. I do believe that's the next step of this offense. I really do believe Lamar is going to take the next step." Jackson was already efficient on deep balls last year, posting the league's 6th highest passer rating on throws 20+ yards downfield, according to Pro Football Focus. But he ranked just 19th with 55 pass attempts of 20+ yards. It sounds like Harbaugh wants that number to rise in 2020. Baltimore certainly has the right guys at WR to make that happen. Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and Devin Duvernay all boast plus speed.

According to ESPN's Jamison Hensley, Ravens GM Eric DeCosta had this to say of rookie RB J.K. Dobbins: "We think he's a three-down back. He's been extremely durable. He's an outstanding fit for what we like to do." That doesn't come as a surprise after the team drafted Dobbins in Round 2 and talked about being surprised that he lasted so long. But it's certainly reassuring for the rookie's fantasy outlook -- especially for dynasty leagues.
