Giants' Damion Ratley: Blanked in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley failed to come down with his lone target in Monday's 26-16 loss to the Steelers.

Ratley played the fourth-most snaps (18) among Giants wide receivers, even with Golden Tate (hamstring) inactive. The lack of usage and production doesn't bode well for Ratley's chances of doing much once Tate gets back, which could be as soon as Week 2 against the Bears.

Giants' Damion Ratley: Set for larger role Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley is in line for a bigger role Monday against the Steelers with Golden Tate (hamstring) inactive, Matt Lombardo of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

As a member of the Browns last season, Ratley earned at least a 30 percent snap share in six different games, totaling 10 catches (on 18 targets) for 136 yards and no touchdowns in those outings. The output isn't impressive, to stay the least, and he'll be no better than fifth in the pecking order for targets behind Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram in Week 1.

Giants' Damion Ratley: Claimed by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Ratley was let go by the Browns on Saturday, but he didn't have to wait long to find a new squad. Last season with the Browns, Ratley caught 12 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown across 13 games. The Texas A&M product will now assume a similar depth role to what he had last season for the Giants with plenty of proven options ahead of him.

Damion Ratley: Let go by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley has been waived by the Browns, Jake Trotter of reports.

The 2018 sixth-round pick was limited by a groin injury throughout some of training camp, causing a bit of a slip in the depth chart behind the likes of Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones. It's possible, should Ratley make it through waivers unclaimed, the Texas A&M product could return to the team's practice squad, though Ratley's NFL experience might make him valuable enough to be a depth piece on another team's roster down the road.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (groin) participated in Thursday's practice, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ratley missed over a week of practices due to a groin injury. Now back on the field, he'll resume competing with Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones for reps behind unquestioned top receivers Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Has groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley didn't practice Sunday due to a groin injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

In 26 career appearances, Ratley has experienced at least 48 percent of the offensive snaps in a given game seven times, combining for an 18-229-0 line on 28 targets. Otherwise, he's managed seven catches (on 16 targets) for 115 yards and one TD in the other 19 games. Considering most of the wide receiver reps in the Browns offense are allotted to Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry (hip), Ratley is battling Rashard Higgins and rookie sixth-rounder Donovan Peoples-Jones for the snaps that linger. For the time being, though, Ratley will attempt to get past a health concern.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Scores in regular-season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley caught two of three targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-23 loss to the Bengals.

Ratley and quarterback Baker Mayfield hooked up on a 46-yard bomb on the Browns' third play of the game to give them an early 7-0 lead. The second-year wideout got over the top of the Bengals secondary and made a nice diving catch in the end zone for his only touchdown of the season. This was one of the few highlights for Ratley, who had just 12 catches while showing some big-play ability (16.7 YPC). The Browns did not have a reliable No. 3 wide receiver in 2019, as both Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway failed to hold onto that role. Ratley enters the offseason as the leading candidate on paper for that job in 2020 pending any additions in the draft or free agency, decisions a new head coach will have significant input into.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Three targets in Week 16 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley did not catch any of his three targets in Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Ravens.

Ratley was targeted deep early in the game on a third down and later had a red-zone target. He's emerged as the Browns' No. 3 wideout in recent weeks, but it has nothing to do with his production. Where others have failed, the Texas A&M product has been given an opportunity -- he's replaced Rashard Higgins, who is a special-teams player only now, and the departed Antonio Callaway. Ratley has just 10 catches for 136 yards since his promotion on the depth chart, and has been on the field for about a third of the team's offensive snaps.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Totals 33 yards in Week 15 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley caught two of two targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Cardinals.

Ratley was in the starting lineup for Sunday's contest, as head coach Freddie Kitchens went with with a three-wideout/two-back set. Despite the start, Ratley played the fewest snaps (21) among the team's wideouts, and the receptions were his first since Week 4. The Browns view running back Kareem Hunt as its third receiver, so Ratley is unlikely to make much impact over the final two weeks of the season.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Receives bump in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley played 16 snaps and failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 27-19 win over the Bengals.

Ratley had been an active part of the Browns' wideout corps to start the season but lost prominence when Rashard Higgins returned from a knee injury. Higgins has since failed to impress and did not see any offensive snaps Sunday, resulting in Ratley receiving his most playing time since Week 4 against Baltimore. He appears to have moved up the wide receiver depth chart, but that doesn't mean much in Cleveland's offense. The Browns are getting by with running back Kareem Hunt as a de facto third wideout, and will work David Njoku, who returned from a wrist injury Sunday, into a more prominent role going forward.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Week 6 against Seattle.

Ratley has been filling in off and on for the likes of Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway, and has even taken on meanginful snaps shares in several of Cleveland's games this season. The team enters Week 6 with a fully healthy receiving corps, however, as Rashard Higgins will be on the active roster for the first time since Week 1 after overcoming a knee injury. With the position group intact for the time being, Ratley seems unlikely to be part of the team's game plan in the immediate future.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Takes over for Callaway
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley was targeted twice without a catch in Monday's 31-3 loss to the 49ers in Week 5.

Ratley had a relatively high profile through the first four games while Rashard Higgins (knee) and Antonio Callaway (suspension) were unavailable, but he was back to fourth on the depth chart with Callaway making his season debut Monday. However, Callaway looked rusty, which led to Ratley serving as the third wideout in the second half. Callaway is still considered the third wide receiver but clearly needs to acclimate to game conditions after being away from the Browns for the first four weeks of the season.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Fills in for Landry
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 40-25 win over the Ravens in Week 4.

Ratley moved up the depth chart after Jarvis Landry was removed late with a concussion, which leaves Landry's status unclear for Week 5 against the 49ers on Monday night. Add in the altercation between Odell Beckham and the Ravens' Marlon Humphrey, which could lead to a league review, and the Browns may be short on wideouts next week. Ratley at times has been operating as the No. 3 wideout through the first four weeks with Rashard Higgins (knee) sidelined and Antonio Callaway suspended for the first quarter of the season. It was presumed Ratley would fall out of the mix when Callaway returns for Week 5, but the second-year wideout may be needed for a more prominent role pending the status of Landry and Beckham.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Gets larger share of snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley caught three of five targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Rams in Week 3.

He was targeted three times in the red zone (one catch, nine yards) and is getting increased looks with Rashard Higgins (knee) unavailable. Ratley played 79 percent of the offensive snaps (57 of 72) against the Rams, up from 61 percent the previous week. Higgins was able to practice in a limited fashion last week, so Ratley may be challenged for the No. 3 wideout spot next week at Baltimore. With Antonio Callaway set to complete his four-game suspension next week, Ratley and Higgins will remain in the mix at least one more week, although the Browns' wobbly offense has been unable to lend much value to any of its depth wideouts.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Increased playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley caught two of three targets for 50 yards in Monday's 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Ratley received a bigger share of playing time in Week 2 as Rashard Higgins (knee) was held out of the contest. Ratley has caught four of the five balls thrown his way, but he's fighting for scraps after quarterback Baker Mayfield feeds Odell Beckham (21 targets) and Jarvis Landry (14).

Browns' Damion Ratley: Two catches in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley caught both of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 43-13 loss to the Titans in Week 1.

Ratley (35 snaps) and Rashard Higgins (32) essentially shared the third wideout role while Odell Beckham (73 snaps, 11 targets) and Jarvis Landry (73, seven) dominated the targets for the position group. Ratley, a 2018 sixth-round draft pick, will likely continue in a similar role for the next three weeks until the Browns welcome back Antonio Callaway from a four-game suspension.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Makes roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (hamstring) made the Browns roster and opens the season as the fifth wideout on the depth chart.

Ratley appeared in his first preseason game in the fourth week, getting one target over his 27 snaps. A 2018 sixth-round draft pick out of Texas A&M, Ratley brings speed to the position, which likely played a factor in general manager John Dorsey's decision to keep him. He'll get at least four weeks to prove he belongs before Anthony Callaway (suspension) returns to the team.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (hamstring) is expected to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Lions, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Coach Freddie Kitchens said the same thing last week, but Ratley was unable to play against the Buccaneers. Ratley, who has yet to make an appearance in the preseason, is on the roster bubble entering the final exhibition contest. The Browns likely have two spots still up for grabs, with performances from players like Ratley on Thursday expected to help the front office and coaching staff settle the decision.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley is expected to make his preseason debut Friday against the Buccaneers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ratley, a sixth-round draft pick in 2018, is fighting for a roster spot after missing the past two games and most of camp with a hamstring injury.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Returns to team work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (hamstring) is participating in team drills at Monday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ratley sustained the hamstring injury in late July but returned to practice late last week, though he apparently didn't get enough work in to play in Saturday's preseason contest. The 24-year-old caught 13 of 20 targets for 144 yards in 13 games last season, but he may need to perform well in the last two preseason games to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.
