What You Need to Know:

– GM Eric DeCosta had some good things to say about Bateman at the Scouting Combine in March: “The thing I’ve been impressed [about] with Rashod [is] his route running, [he has] very, very good hands and his attitude this year – his ability day-in and day-out to compete, to learn the offense, to challenge the defensive backs every single day, and he made plays when he had the chance. He’s very strong to the football. We think he’s going to make a big, big jump this year in his second year, and we’re very excited for his future.”

– After the team traded Marquise Brown on Night 1 of the NFL Draft, DeCosta added that Bateman “has had a tremendous offseason so far.”

– In his final college season, Bateman led all Power 5 WRs in yards per route run from the outside, according to Pro Football Focus.

– He needed August surgery for a groin injury and missed the team’s first 5 regular-season games (as well as the final 3 of the preseason).

– Bateman garnered 6+ targets in 5 straight contests once he did get onto the field as a rookie. He drew 15.3% target share over the 12 games he played.

– Bateman’s playing time dipped in the middle of that span, but he rebounded to exceed 80% snap share in each of his final 4 games – his 4 largest playing-time shares of the year.

– Bateman’s rookie-year average target depth checked in between 8.8 and 9.6 yards, depending on the source. Both numbers fell 4+ yards short of the average for his college career. Marquise Brown also exceeded both numbers by a decent amount in each of his 3 Ravens seasons. So there’s upside in that area.

– Though he spent ample time both inside and outside as a college receiver, Bateman worked almost exclusively outside as an NFL rookie: 81.7% of routes, according to Pro Football Focus. That position also tends to support deeper ADOT.

– Lamar Jackson posted his lowest PFF passing grade and NFL passer rating of the past 3 years in 2021, leaving rebound potential in his passing performance.

– The departures of Brown and Sammy Watkins leave behind 31.9% of WR target share from last year’s team.

– The Ravens went from 2 straight years of just 44% passing on offense to 56.4% last season, which began with the team losing its top 3 RBs to training-camp injuries. That leaves a wide range of potential outcomes for 2022’s pass-run split.

-- The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec highlighted WR Rashod Bateman among his "stock up" players through the 1st week of training camp. "He consistently made plays in all areas on the field and cut out the drops that were happening too often in minicamps," Zrebiec wrote.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

It’s difficult to know how much we should expect the Ravens to throw this year. They appeared ready to pass more heading into last season, with moves such as the Bateman selection and Sammy Watkins signing. But then Marquise Brown requested a trade, reportedly because the offense was too run-heavy – despite 2021’s swing. If Baltimore stays close to its 2022 passing rate, then Bateman’s target-volume upside climbs well beyond where we have him projected. Even if they swing further back toward pre-2021 levels than we’ve predicted, there’s room for Bateman to deliver WR3-level fantasy numbers. As long as summer hype doesn’t push him higher than mid-WR3 ADP, the 2nd-year man will make for an intriguing selection.

Mark Andrews, TE BAL

10:25am EDT 9/26/22

Andrews dominates Ravens receiving

Ravens TE Mark Andrews racked up 8-89-2 receiving on 13 targets in Sunday's win over the Patriots. That accounted for 44.8% of QB Lamar Jackson's total pass attempts, with just 1 other Raven topping 2 targets. That was WR Rashod Bateman, who caught 2 of 4 looks for 59 yards. WR Devin Duvernay and TE Josh Oliver snagged Jackson's other 2 TD passes. New England ranked among the league's toughest matchups for TEs last season. Although the Pats missed S Kyle Dugger in this game, let the result remind you that we need not fear matchups when it comes to Andrews. Bateman will generally find more favorable conditions than he had Sunday.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson delivered big numbers in Sunday's come-from-ahead loss to the Dolphins. He ran for 119 yards on 9 attempts, with most of that coming via his 79-yard TD dash in the 3rd quarter. Jackson also racked up 318 yards and 3 TDs through the air, finding TE Mark Andrews, WR Rashod Bateman and WR Demarcus Robinson for scores. Bateman (4-108) and Andrews (9-104) each delivered big lines, combining to claim 62% of Jackson's targets for the game.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman accounted for nearly all of his Week 1 receiving yardage with a 55-yard TD in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's 24-9 win over the Jets. Bateman totaled just 59 yards on 2 receptions in the game. His 5 targets led Baltimore WRs and ranked 2nd on the team but accounted for just 16.7% of Lamar Jackson's 30 pass attempts on a surprisingly sluggish offensive day for the Ravens. Potentially tough matchups with the Dolphins, Patriots and Bills come the next 3 weeks.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec highlighted WR Rashod Bateman among his "stock up" players through the 1st week of training camp. "He consistently made plays in all areas on the field and cut out the drops that were happening too often in minicamps," Zrebiec wrote. "The 2021 first-round pick has a no-nonsense and business-like demeanor." Bateman has a massive opportunity in 2022 with the departure of WR Marquise Brown and his 146 targets from a year ago. He's an attractive target at his 7th-round ADP.

Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic named James Proche the standout WR of Ravens minicamp/OTAs. Of course, we’re talking about padless practices, and Zrebiec even points out that Proche won the offseason over his first 2 seasons. Still, the long-time beat writer credits Proche’s toughness, confidence and good hands as reasons for him to be a “bigger contributor” this fall. Clearly, Baltimore has a major need at WR behind Rashod Bateman. A veteran signing remains likely, but there could be some deep league value to mine if Proche can lock down a steady role. At 5’11, 201 pounds, Proche was a considered a productive, sure-handed prospect coming out of SMU. He's tallied 17 catches through 2 pro seasons.

Dynasty Write-up
A training-camp groin injury delayed Bateman's debut and challenged the judgement of his rookie season. The late-1st-rounder would benefit if the Ravens continue 2021's lean toward throwing the ball much more. And Marquise Brown's departure sets Bateman up for a big spike in target share.
