Shark Bites

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (foot) was on the field for the start of OTAs on Monday. He's expected to be "eased back into action this summer" after undergoing Lisfranc surgery in November. Bateman has struggled to stay on the field through two NFL seasons, missing 16 of 34 games. But he's flashed when healthy and remains an intriguing prospect. We'll be keeping a close eye on the Ravens offense this summer after they made an OC change to Todd Monken and added Odell Beckham and Zay Flowers to the WR corps.

The Ravens and WR Rashod Bateman have agreed to a contract extension that keeps him in Baltimore through the 2026 season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Bateman had been scheduled to hit free agency next offseason. The 2021 first-round pick has underwhelmed through three NFL campaigns, missing 17 games of 51 regular-season games and failing to reach 50 yards in 25 of the other 34. HC John Harbaugh said back in February, though, that he expected Bateman to take a big step in 2024 and get the ball "a lot more." There's certainly opportunity for Bateman in Baltimore's current WR corps. But he can't be considered more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts considering his career thus far.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (foot) is not listed on the final Week 12 injury report. He tweaked his foot on Wednesday but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Bateman will play vs. the Chargers on Sunday night. But, assuming WRs Zay Flowers and Odell Beckham suit up, Bateman isn’t a viable fantasy option.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman left Wednesday's practice with a foot injury. But HC John Harbaugh said afterward the wideout "should be fine," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This is a particularly worrisome situation, however, for a guy who lost most of 2022 to a foot injury that continued to inhibit him through this past summer. We don't yet know if it's the same foot or a related issue. Of course, Bateman's latest ailment could deliver little to no fantasy impact because he's averaging just 2.0 receptions per game this season.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. Bateman totaled just seven catches for 59 scoreless yards over the first three weeks of the season and isn't a recommended Week 5 fantasy play.

Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. Bateman totaled just seven catches on nine targets through the first three games of the season and can't be trusted in Week 5 fantasy lineups.
