Shark Bites

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.

11:10am EDT 10/18/20

Ravens CB Marcus Peters (thigh) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He entered the day questionable but played through the same issue last week and didn’t miss a snap in the blowout win over the Bengals. Peters is good to go if you have him in your IDP plans.

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.

11:10am EDT 10/11/20

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (thigh) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday's practice, but we never heard any concern over his status. Andrews remains a must-start.

11:10am EDT 10/11/20

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so the knee shouldn’t be an issue.

11:10am EDT 10/11/20

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.

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.
