Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

-A 4-star recruit, Bateman (6’0, 190) delivered a strong 51-704-6 freshman line at Minnesota. He really broke out as a sophomore (60-1,219-11).

-The 21-year-old originally decided to opt out of the 2020 campaign due to COVID before changing his mind and re-joining the team in late September. He played in 5 games before electing to sit out the remainder of the season.

-In 2020, he posted 36-472-2, hitting 100 yards in 3 of 5 appearances.

-Bateman wins with excellent releases and route-running. There’s some Keenan Allen to his game.

-With the Ravens, Bateman profiles as the instant co-#1 alongside Marquise Brown.

-Bateman figures to do most of his damage on short/intermediate routes, while Brown handles the deeper routes.

-Baltimore also added veteran Sammy Watkins in free agency. Only 28, Watkins has missed 14 games over the past 3 seasons (all in Kansas City).

-Watkins’ inability to flourish with the Chiefs indicates that Bateman should outproduce him this fall.

-Still, Baltimore’s ranked 32nd in pass attempts in back to back seasons — both under current OC Greg Roman. The Ravens ranked 26th in total plays last year; 7th in ’19 (Lamar Jackson’s breakout year).

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

When it comes to the pass catchers, the Ravens are as deep as they’ve been in years. Marquise Brown, Sammy Watkins and Mark Andrews don’t look flashy on paper, but they’re enough to forecast an inconsistent year 1 for Bateman.

Once again, Baltimore will remain run-heavy.

Still, we buy the talent here, and it wouldn’t be a shock if Bateman ends the year as Baltimore’s 2nd most targeted pass catcher. He’s a late-round stash for summer drafts.

According to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic, Ravens WR Rashod Bateman has given the Ravens, “every reason to believe he’ll be a significant contributor from Day 1.” Zrebiec adds that Bateman “hasn’t looked like a rookie.” It's tough to expect consistent fantasy contributions given a run-heavy offense and the presence of Mark Andrews, Marquise Brown and Sammy Watkins. But there’s a real chance that Bateman’s role grows as the season rolls along. He's heavily discounted with a WR62 price in FFPC best ball drafts.

The Ravens selected Minnesota WR Rashod Bateman with the 27th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Bateman has as strong a production profile as any WR in this year’s class. He turned in a rare true freshman breakout season in 2018, ranking 2nd to only then-junior Tyler Johnson in all major receiving categories (51-704-6). Then he exploded for 1,219 yards and 11 scores on 60 catches as a sophomore alongside Johnson. Bateman was named First-Team All-Big 10 and Big Ten receiver of the year. He contracted COVID last summer and originally decided to opt out of the 2020 season. He eventually changed his mind and played in 5 games before electing to sit out the remainder of the season. Bateman was as dominant as ever, though, averaging 7.2 catches and 94.4 yards per game. He surprised with a 4.43-second 40 time at his Pro Day -- although he came in much smaller than expected at 6’0 and 190 pounds. Bateman looks and plays bigger on tape. And he has an impressive combination of releases and route running. We see shades of Keenan Allen and Davante Adams in his game. A final note: Bateman brings positional versatility after playing 87% of his snaps on the outside in 2019 and then 61% in the slot this past season. This isn’t an ideal landing spot with the Ravens, who have ranked dead last in passing attempts in each of the last 2 seasons.
