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.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman is active for today’s game against the Chargers. OC Greg Roman suggested earlier in the week that Bateman would be on a snap count in his NFL debut, so we'd try not to use him in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Ravens OC Greg Roman said Thursday that there's a "chance" WR Rashod Bateman (core) makes his debut against the Chargers this weekend. “He’s looking good," Roman added. "I don’t think we’re going to throw him into the fire every play. I think we’re going to build him into the plan every week.” It sounds like Bateman will be on some type of snap count if he does play on Sunday. The rookie isn't a Week 6 fantasy option but is still a nice bench stash for the 2nd half of the season.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (core) won't play vs. the Colts tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie has been practicing for a couple of weeks now and should be close to making his debut. WR Miles Boykin (hamstring) is expected to be activated from IR and make his 2021 debut tonight. He'll be no better than 3rd on the WR depth chart behind Marquise Brown and Sammy Watkins.

The Ravens did not place WR Rashod Bateman on the active roster, so he won't play vs. the Broncos on Sunday. It's not a major surprise considering the rookie just returned to practice this week after mid-August core-muscle surgery. We'll see if Bateman is ready to debut in Week 5. He remains a nice stash in deeper fantasy leagues.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (core) has been activated from IR. That makes him eligible to play this weekend -- but doesn't necessarily mean that he will. We'll keep an eye on Bateman's practice participation this week. The rookie makes a nice stash in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams. Baltimore also activated WR Miles Boykin (hamstring) from IR.
