Shark Bites

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (core) will return to practice this week, HC John Harbaugh said. The rookie is eligible to come off IR for Week 4, although he might not be ready to play after being sidelined since mid-August. Bateman is a fine stash in deeper fantasy leagues, but don't plan on using him in your starting lineup for at least a couple more weeks.

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.
