Shark Bites

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said after Thursday night's preseason opener that WR James Proche didn't play because of an unspecified "soft-tissue deal." The coach indicated that it's minor and said the young wideout will miss "a week or 2." We'll keep an eye out for more details.

Ravens WR James Proche (groin) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. He played just 5 snaps in the opener, so there's no fantasy impact here.

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.

The Ravens added SMU WR James Proche in the 6th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more productive receiver over the past 2 seasons. Proche hauled in 93 balls for 1,199 yards and 12 TDs as a junior in 2018 and then racked up 111 catches, 1,225 yards and 15 scores last year. He tied LSU’s Justin Jefferson for most catches in the country, ranked 13th in receiving yards and finished 4th in receiving TDs. Proche has experience playing both outside and in the slot. And he has some of the most reliable hands in this WR class, dropping only 9 of 312 catchable targets (2.9%) for his career. The knocks against Proche: He faced lower-level competition in the American Conference, is on the small side at 5’11, 201 pounds and is already 23 years old.
