West had 46 carries for 180 yards and four catches for 21 yards in six games with the Ravens. West, a Baltimore native, was traded from the Browns to the Titans in September, then later released by Tennessee in November. He caught on with his hometown team and even had a significant role in a few late-season games, but with Justin Forsett (arm) and Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) both expected back in 2016, West doesn't necessarily have a future in Baltimore.
West carried 13 times for 42 yards in Sunday's win over the Steelers. The second-year back saw an increased workload as the Ravens led throughout and looked to milk the clock, but responded with an underwhelming 3.2 yards per carry. Rookie Buck Allen was given another shot after being benched last week due to fumble issues, and he was able to rack up 114 total yards and a score on 23 touches. As such, West should remain the backup for the season finale against the Bengals.
West carried a team-high seven times for 35 yards and caught both targets for another 11 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The second-year back was the busiest member of the Baltimore backfield Sunday, as Buck Allen was benched after fumbling for the second straight week. The Ravens abandoned the run for the most part after going down big on the scoreboard, but West's average of five yards per carry was impressive versus a stout Chiefs run defense. Allen should get another chance to shoulder the load, but West could see an expanded role next week versus Pittsburgh.
West (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. West is in uniform Sunday, but he's working behind Javorius Allen, which limits his fantasy ceiling in Week 15.
West (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Added to the Thursday injury report as a limited participant, West was downgraded to a non-participant at Friday's session. He thus appears highly questionable for Sunday's game, with Terrence Magee next in line to serve as Javorius Allen's top backup.
