Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Football News 2020

Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) and NT Brandon Williams (ankle) are doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans. Campbell is the defense's top-graded lineman in run defense, according to Pro Football Focus. Williams rates poorly in that area, but losing your starting NT isn't likely to help your run D. The pair of injuries improves the matchup for Titans RB Derrick Henry.

Ravens OLB Matt Judon (calf) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. After opening the week missing practice, Judon put in a limited Thursday workout and participated in full on Friday. That bodes well for his game status. Unfortunately, the Sunday night kickoff leaves you few options if you hope to wait for him. Baltimore also ruled out DE Calais Campbell (calf), as expected.

The Ravens have activated CB Marlon Humphrey from the COVID list, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. That should mean he'll be available for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. We've added Humphrey to the Week 10 DB rankings.

The calf strain that knocked Ravens DE Calais Campbell out of Sunday's game "will likely caust him to miss multiple weeks," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Campbell will reportedly have further tests to determine the severity, and the injury "does not sound long term." But you'll at least need to line up a Week 10 replacement for your IDP lineup. Campbell's snaps got spread around after he left the Colts game. DE Derek Wolfe might have been the greatest beneficiary, playing a season-high 75% of the snaps. He didn't see much boost on the stat sheet, though, with just 3 tackles, no tackles for loss and 0 QB hits.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell left in the 1st quarter of today's game against the Colts with a calf injury. He's questionable to return.

The Ravens have activated all the players who landed on the COVID list earlier this week for close contact with CB Marlon Humphrey. That means ILB Patrick Queen, OLB Matt Judon and S DeShon Elliott -- among others -- will be available for Sunday's game against the Colts. Humphrey remains out, of course, as the only one who tested positive.

This will be an interesting week for the Ravens defense. CB Marlon Humphrey landed on the COVID list at the beginning of the week after testing positive. His list of close contacts includes OLB Matt Judon, ILB Patrick Queen, S DeShon Elliott and ILB L.J. Fort -- as well as reserve ILB Malik Harrison. They all must isolate for at least 5 days. Whoever passes COVID testing at the end of that phase will still be available to play Sunday against the Colts. We'll certainly be watching for the sake of IDP lineups, as well as the Baltimore team defense's outlook.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey tweeted Monday that he has tested positive for COVID. Based on previous cases around the league, that likely knocks him out for at least the next 2 games. That would take Humphrey out of IDP lineups and weaken the Baltimore secondary for upcoming matchups with the Colts and Patriots. We’ll see whether any more positives turn up among Ravens or Steelers, whom Humphrey and the Ravens played yesterday.

Ravens OLB Matt Judon got ejected in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers for making contact with an official. He said after the game that the contact was accidental, coming when Judon tried to free his arm amid some post-play fighting -- but also took responsibility. We don't expect to see Judon suspended from any further game action.

According to multiple reports, the Vikings are trading DE Yannick Ngakoue to the Ravens for a 3rd-round pick in 2021 and a conditional 5th-rounder in 2022. Minnesota, of course, just acquired Ngakoue from Jacksonville before the season for a 2nd-round 2021 pick plus the same conditional-level selection. The veteran pass-rusher has produced, delivering 5 sacks in 6 games. Ngakoue will play OLB in Baltimore's 3-4 alignment, but he should retain his DL eligibility in IDP leagues. He figures to take playing time from OLBs Jaylon Ferguson and Tyus Bowser, across from Matt Judon. Minnesota, meanwhile, now counts Ifeadi Odenigbo and Jalyn Holmes as its top 2 DEs -- unless Danielle Hunter is nearing a return from his neck injury. Both teams are on bye this week, so we'll see what else we learn about both situations before their Week 8 contests.

Ravens CB Marcus Peters (thigh) and DE Derek Wolfe (elbow) are active for today's game against the Bengals. Each entered the day questionable but are fine to use at appropriate IDP levels. Each player presents a boom-bust profile against a Bengals offense with upside in both coverage and pressure stats.
