Ravens' Justin Tucker: Perfect in Week 11
Tucker converted all three of his field-goal attempts and made his only extra-point try during Sunday's win over the Bengals.
Tucker logged his third consecutive perfect game, including a long field-goal try of 56-yards. The talented kicker accounted for 10 of Baltimore's total points during Sunday's 24-21 win against Cincinnati. He'll look to log another strong outing against the Raiders in Week 12.... See More ...

Ravens' Gus Edwards: Benefits from Jackson's presence
Edwards benefited from the rushing threat posed by quarterback Lamar Jackson during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati, Childs Walker of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The undrafted rookie out of Rutgers had a minimal role prior to Sunday, getting most of his work during garbage time or in special packages alongside Jackson. The familiarity working with Jackson paid off in a big way Sunday, as Edwards posted a 17-115-1 rushing line while piling up yards on zone-read runs that forced the defense to devote at least one defender to the quarterback. Starting running back Alex Collins took just seven carries for 18 yards and a touchdown, essentially disappearing from the offense once the Ravens settled on the zone-read packages as their best method to move the ball. Edwards could have another busy afternoon Week 12 against the Raiders, but there's also a chance he sees his role drastically reduced if Joe Flacco (hip) is able to play. Given the favorable matchup, Baltimore likely is leaning toward the Jackson-Edwards plan for another week.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Joe Flacco: Iffy for Week 12
Coach John Harbaugh relayed after Sunday's 24-21 win over the Bengals that it might be tough for Flacco (hip) to play next weekend against the Raiders, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Of course, there's less urgency to get Flacco back on the field following the effort of Lamar Jackson in his first NFL start Sunday. In addition to completing 13 of 19 passes for 150 yards (with a pick), Jackson helped spark the Baltimore offense by running for 117 yards on 27 carries.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Willie Snead: Totals 51 yards
Snead caught five of eight passes for 51 yards during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati.
How will Baltimore's receivers be impacted with Lamar Jackson at quarterback? For Snead, the answer was not much. The off-season acquisition was targeted at least seven times for the seventh consecutive game and topped 50 yards for the sixth time during that span. He still hasn't found the end zone since Week 1, but Snead looks like he'll be about the same player no matter whether it's Joe Flacco (hip) or Lamar Jackson throwing him passes. Look for him to try to exploit an Oakland pass defense giving up 258 yards per game in Week 12.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Gus Edwards: Emerges for 115 yards in win
Edwards ran for 115 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati. He added a two-point conversion on the day.
Edwards tied the game up late in the third quarter with a weaving inside run for an 11-yard score. He did it again on the next play for the two-point conversion. The undrafted rookie out of Rutgers had a solid 42-yard outing in Week 6, but nobody could have been expecting this caliber of performance. How the the workload between him and Alex Collins is distributed moving forward will be something to monitor, considering the latter managed just seven carries Sunday, only one of which came in the second half. Edwards has logged just 32 carries this season, but his 5.6 yards per tote are a full two yards more than Collins' 3.6 figure. A favorable matchup awaits in Week 12 against a Raiders run defense giving up 4.8 yards per carry.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Alex Collins: Finds end zone, bench
Collins ran for 18 yards and a touchdown on seven carries during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Bengals.
Collins put the Ravens up following the team's opening drive, taking a zone hand-off and bouncing right for a seven-yard touchdown. The fun kind of ended there, as undrafted free agent Gus Edwards came out of nowhere for a 115-yard day. Collins garnered just one one-yard carry in the second half. That dynamic will be worth watching, as Edwards offers the same bulk the Ravens seem to like in their backs, but at a more efficient clip than Collins (5.6 YPC, compared to Collins' 3.6). Collins has scored five times in his last five games and is therefore difficult to ignore, but it may be that the Ravens have grown tired of his three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust approach. Next up in Week 12 is a bottom-10 Raiders run defense surrendering 4.8 yards per game.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Lamar Jackson: More runs than pass attempts in win
Jackson completed 13 of 19 passes for 150 yards and an interception during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati and added 117 yards on 27 carries.
Runs of 12 and 21 yards helped ease Jackson in during his first drive as a starter, setting up an Alex Collins touchdown. Though he completed a solid clip of his passes, the majority of those throws were underneath and a scramble-turned-interception to start the second half showed some of the lack of comfort Jackson appears to still have as a more traditional passer. There's no question that Jackson gives defenses a lot to think about, but how he's to be evaluated from a fantasy perspective is unlike that of just about any other passer in the league. Do the rushing yards make up for a conservative passing offense? If starter Joe Flacco (hip) doesn't return in Week 12, Jackson will enjoy a friendly matchup against an Oakland defense similar in scheme as Cincinnati, one that sports a bottom-five ranking in opponent passer rating allowed and bottom 10 in YPC allowed (4.8)....

Ravens' Ty Montgomery: Suits up Sunday
Montgomery is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
He'll join a Baltimore backfield led by Alex Collins, that also includes Javorius Allen and Gus Edwards. Montgomery's ability as a pass catcher and blocker should prove to be an asset to the Ravens, but he'll be a speculative fantasy play until it's established that he's a key cog in the team's passing attack....

Ravens' Tavon Young: Ready to rock Sunday
Young (ankle) will suit up for Sunday's game versus the Bengals.
Young isn't guaranteed defensive snaps in the Ravens' scheme, and the Bengals don't throw the ball an extraordinary amount, so his IDP value is low. The third-year pro has just 11 tackles and a pass breakup in the last four games, but he had four stops against the Bengals when the teams met in Week 2.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Ronnie Stanley: Slots in Sunday
Stanley (ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bengals.
Stanley is returning from a one-game absence due to this ankle injury, and he was aided in recovery by a bye week. The 24-year-old will start at left tackle.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Tony Jefferson: Ready to play Sunday
Jefferson (thigh) will play in Sunday's game versus the Bengals.
Jefferson has been nursing this thigh injury throughout November but hasn't missed a game. The sixth-year pro has 54 tackles, one sack and three pass breakups in nine games, so his IDP value isn't flashy.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Joe Flacco: Officially inactive Sunday
Flacco (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
With Flacco out, 2018 first-rounder Lamar Jackson is in line to start at QB for the Ravens on Sunday, while backup Robert Griffin is a candidate to see the field in certain situations. Looking ahead, ESPN's Jamison Hensley relays that Flacco will not require surgery to address his hip issue. Additionally, though the veteran signal-caller could also potentially sit out next week's contest against the Raiders, Flacco is not expected to miss time beyond that.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Set for Week 11 start, per report
Jackson will receive the starting assignment for Sunday's game against the Bengals and is expected to take the bulk of the snaps behind center, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Prior reports noted that Jackson was merely expected to start with Joe Flacco (hip) unlikely to play, but this latest nugget offers some confirmation. Because the Ravens have frequently made use of two-quarterback sets throughout the season, it's expected that Jackson and top backup Robert Griffin will share the field in tandem at various points during the game. Since the assumption is that Jackson will handle the majority of the snaps, he'll profile as the better fantasy play of the two and could be a high-upside option -- albeit a somewhat risky one -- even in leagues that start only one quarterback due to his dynamic running skills. As for Flacco's outlook beyond Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the veteran signal-caller won't require surgery to address the injury, which likely takes a long-term absence off the table put still puts his status in jeopardy for the Ravens' next game Nov. 25 against the Raiders....

Ravens' Robert Griffin: Likely ticketed for backup role
Griffin is on track to fill the No. 2 quarterback role for the Ravens on Sunday against the Bengals with Lamar Jackson expected to start for the injured Joe Flacco (hip), Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
According to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Jackson is slated to receive the majority of the snaps under center in his first NFL start, which differs from an earlier report that suggested the rookie and Griffin might split the work in more equitable fashion. It's still expected that Griffin will see the field in some capacity for the first time since 2016, as he was out of football in 2017 and has been inactive through the Ravens' first nine games this season. Barring an in-game injury to any of the starting quarterbacks around the league in Sunday's action, Griffin and the Saints' Taysom Hill still appear to be two of the likelier backup signal-callers to accrue statistics in Week 11. With six teams on bye and options likely limited in two-QB leagues, that's enough to make Griffin someone worth considering for fantasy players who don't have two starting quarterbacks available for lineups this week....

Ravens' Joe Flacco: Unlikely to require hip surgery
Flacco, who is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals and is highly unlikely to play, isn't expected to require surgery to address his right hip injury, Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network report.
Surgery almost certainly would have spelled an end to Flacco's season, but the Ravens are apparently optimistic that the veteran signal-caller's injury isn't nearly that severe. According to the report, Flacco "should be ready" to go within the next week or two, though his availability for the Ravens' subsequent Nov. 25 contest against the Raiders is in "jeopardy," according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. After missing all three of the Ravens' practices this week, Flacco will cede his first start since 2015 to rookie first-round pick Lamar Jackson, who is expected to see the bulk of the snaps behind center. Coach John Harbaugh left open the possibility earlier in the week that he could use both of his active quarterbacks in the contest, so backup Robert Griffin may also be in store for some light snaps, presumably on passing downs....
