Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman joins an offense that totaled a league-low 1,729 yards when targeting wide receivers in 2020.
Huddle Up: Bateman is Baltimore's latest attempt to find a go-to receiver for Lamar Jackson, but between Jackson's tendency to target tight ends and Baltimore's run-heavy approach, it is far from a guarantee that he will be the answer. He's a late-round flier in redraft leagues.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson had his fifth-year option exercised Friday, April 30.
Huddle Up: Jackson has played very well since entering the NFL and should continue to be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues in 2021.

Minnesota WR Rashod Bateman was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 27th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Baltimore was rumored to be in the market for a receiver, but this isn't a fantasy friendly landing spot. Bateman will have to compete with Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews in an offense that leans heavily on the running game. He's a WR5 until his role in the offense becomes clear.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will have his fifth-year option picked up by the team before the league-wide deadline Monday, May 3, according to head coach John Harbaugh. 'Guarantee it,' Harbaugh said Tuesday, April 27, 'He's definitely going to be our quarterback. ... That's the plan, absolutely.'
Huddle Up: There shouldn't have been any doubt about the impending official move, nor should Jackson's stock in dynasty leagues be in question. He's poised to be a top-five fantasy QB for a long time in Baltimore.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has started contract extension talks with the Ravens, according to general manager Eric DeCosta.
Huddle Up: Jackson has been one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL since he was drafted and will continue to be a valuable fantasy option because of his ability to run. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues in 2021.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is slated for a 'very big role' in the offense in 2021, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, and Hensley expects 1,100 rushing and double-digit touchdowns out of Dobbins.
Huddle Up: Dobbins ranked in the top 10 in rushing yards over the final five games of his rookie year, and if Baltimore allows him to lead the backfield for an entire season, a 1,000-yard campaign should be on tap.

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown has averaged 17.9 yards per reception across three career postseason games, catching 18 passes for 322 yards.
Huddle Up: Brown has looked the part of a No. 1 receiver in the playoffs, but unless Baltimore decides to open up its offense a bit in the regular season, he will likely remain a big play-dependent WR3 in 2021.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Sammy Watkins has passed his physical, the team announced Friday, April 2, and has signed a one-year, $5 million contract.
Huddle Up: If Watkins can stay reasonably healthy -- and that's a big if considering he's missed a total of 23 regular season games over the last five seasons -- he has a chance to lead the Ravens' WR corps and return WR3 production in 2021.

Free-agent WR Sammy Watkins (Chiefs) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens Friday, March 26, worth $6 million, according to a source. The deal includes $5 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Watkins should be one of the starting receivers for the Ravens next season and will see plenty of targets. He is going from one of the top passing teams to one of the top running teams in the NFL but could still be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Free-agent WR Sammy Watkins (Chiefs) has received interest from the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Watkins likely would be one of the starting receivers if he signs with the Texans. His fantasy value would be uncertain because of the team's quarterback situation. He would be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if Deshaun Watson remains the quarterback.

Free-agent WR Sammy Watkins (Chiefs) will meet with the Baltimore Ravens Tuesday, March 23, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Ravens have been looking for receiver help this offseason, and Watkins could push for a starting job if he signs with Baltimore. He could be a possible No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next season if he joins the Ravens.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is tied for second in the league with 29 runs of at least 20 yards since 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Jackson is simply electric in the open field. While there is no question he benefits from Baltimore having a dynamic threat next to him in the backfield (J.K. Dobbins in 2020), a speedster out wide (Marquise Brown since 2019) and a big-play tight end like Mark Andrews, defenses struggle to put a lid on Jackson even when they focus on stopping him as a runner. His rushing ability figures to keep him among the top fantasy quarterbacks for the foreseeable future.

Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent RB Gus Edwards received a tender offer Wednesday, March 10. The team did not disclose the level of the tender.
Huddle Up: Edwards will be sharing playing time with J.K. Dobbins next season, but they showed they can both be productive for fantasy players despite the committee. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back that could be a flex option against some opponents.

Contrary to a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has not started contract extension talks with the Ravens at this point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Jackson is still under contract for a few more years, so the two sides do not need to reach an agreement this offseason. Jackson is one of the better fantasy quarterbacks available and should be a weekly starting option in 2021.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins led all rookies with eight rushes of 20-plus yards in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Dobbins made the most of his limited carries, and he look the part of a RB1 in the second half of last season. With Mark Ingram out of the picture, Dobbins should at least by a RB2 in 2021.

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins has interest from the Chiefs in re-signing him. 'Sammy is a big part of this offense and when he's healthy, we're better,' general manager Brett Veach said. 'If there's a way we can make it work again, we'll certainly try to do that. Love having him around.'
Huddle Up: Watkins has been extremely brittle, but he could be a PPR WR4 if he's back with KC.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has rushed for at least 10 yards on 99 of his carries since entering the league in 2018 - 42 more than any other quarterback over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: It should come as no surprise a player that already has two 1,000-yard rushing seasons - with less than 200 carries each time - is so proficient at ripping off chunk gains on the ground. There's also no reason to expect him to stop anytime soon, as Baltimore has made it clear it wants to remain a running team and wants Jackson toting the rock around 10 times per game. Jackson should be considered a top-five fantasy quarterback again in 2021 despite coming off a slightly disappointing by his standards.

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown's six receiving touchdowns over the final six weeks of the season were the second most in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Brown enjoyed the most consistent stretch of his career in the second half of 2020, and he had 196 receiving yards across two playoff games to close the year. Baltimore will continue to utilize a run-heavy offense, but Brown is the top outside target and can be a WR3 with upside thanks to his big-play ability.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) is expected to play in Super Bowl LV, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Watkins will be making his first appearance of these playoffs, but he is an intriguing sleeper in Super Bowl fantasy contests. He has 24 catches for 464 yards in five postseason games with the Chiefs over the past two seasons, topping 60 yards in all of them.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) was a full participant in practice Friday, Feb. 5, and is listed as questionable for Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
Huddle Up: Watkins was able to put in his first full practice in awhile -- another strong sign that he will indeed play Sunday for the first time since Week 16 of the regular season. Of course we're likely going to have to wait until the official inactives list is posted Sunday, but it's not looking like Watkins will be on that list.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) was officially limited during practice Wednesday, Feb. 3.
Huddle Up: Watkins appears to be on track to play in Super Bowl LV, but fantasy players will know more in a few days. He will see a handful of targets if he is active and could be a starting option in some fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 29, and is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Super Bowl LV.
Huddle Up: It's important to remember the league makes each of its Super Bowl participants file an injury report as if it was playing at the end of the bye week for the big game. Watkins hasn't played since Week 16 but was reportedly close to going last weekend. His downgrade on Friday isn't the best news, but he is still expected to play barring a setback. Given his recent performances in the playoffs and Andy Reid's willingness to get him the ball in big spots, don't be surprised if Watkins fares well in his return to the field.

Baltimore Ravens TE Nick Boyle on Friday, Jan. 29, agreed to a two-year contract extension with the team that will run through the 2023 season.
Huddle Up: Boyle is known more for his blocking than receiving, and although he's caught a pair of touchdown passes in each of the last two seasons, he's only averaged 20 receptions a season over his six campaigns in Baltimore.
