Ricky Ortiz: Done in New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints waived Ortiz on Sunday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Ortiz appeared in one game with the Saints last season, but he wasn't able to stick with the team through training camp. He could receive some interest around the league as a reserve fullback.

Saints' Ricky Ortiz: Inks deal with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz signed with the Saints' active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Zach Line (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, so Ortiz is being brought in to possibly fill a starting fullback role. It could be a one-game NFL stint for Ortiz if Line gets healthy before the playoffs, however.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz (ankle) was waived with an injury settlement by the Falcons on Monday, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Falcons' Ricky Ortiz: Misses practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz (ankle) was unable to suit up for Sunday's practice, Vaughn McClure of reports.

It's unclear how the veteran picked up the injury, but it's serious enough to force him out of practice. The team could hold Ortiz out of preseason action if they want to preserve him from further injury, but that remains to be seen.

Falcons' Ricky Ortiz: Collects third reception of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz hauled in his only target, picking up four receiving yards during Sunday's 24-10 win against the Panthers.

The 24-year-old fullback picked up his ninth career start Sunday and registered his third catch of the year late in the third quarter, when Matt Ryan found him for a four-yard gain on a drive that culminated in a 44-yard Mohamed Sanu touchdown catch. After beating out Daniel Marx and Luke McNitt for the starting role in training camp, Ortiz has been seldom utilized by the Falcons over the course of the season, playing on 11 percent of the offensive snaps and 17.9 percent of the special teams snaps. In Week 17, Ortiz and the Falcons wrap up a disappointing 2018 campaign against a Buccaneers defense that ranks 23rd in yards allowed per game (376.3) and 30th in scoring defense (28.7 points per game against).

Falcons' Ricky Ortiz: Slotted in as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz has been listed as the Falcons' starting fullback on the unofficial depth chart for Friday's preseason game against the Jets, Vaughn McClure of reports.

As the old Western adage goes, "This town ain't big enough for the both of us." The same almost certainly holds true for the Falcons' fullback competition, where Ortiz is now beginning to be a consistent presence on the first-team offense in 11-on-11 drills. Stanford's Daniel Marx already has been eliminated from the mix, meaning Ortiz and Luke McNitt are the only fullbacks currently remaining on the roster, with Ortiz being the man most likely to receive the starting nod for Friday's preseason opener in the Meadowlands.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz signed a contract with the Falcons on Wednesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Ortiz was recently let go by Baltimore after spending most of the 2017 season on injured reserve. The Oregon State product will compete with two undrafted rookie fullbacks in Luke McNitt (Nebraska) and Daniel Marx (Stanford) for a roster spot with Atlanta.

Ravens' Ricky Ortiz: Signed to reserve/future contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens signed Ortiz to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Ortiz spent the entirety of the season on the Ravens' practice squad. His signing could signal Baltimore's interest in reintegrating traditional fullbacks into the offense after a one-year hiatus.
