Huddle Up: Bateman had seven catches for the second time in the last four games and set a season high in targets. It has been an inconsistent rookie campaign for Bateman, but with one game to go, he has flashed enough potential to generate some buzz ahead of next season.

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman registered one reception for five yards on two receptions in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Bateman has been super inconsistent, as he was blanked in Week 13, posted a career-high 103 yards last week on seven grabs, then this. As such, he cannot be trusted for fantasy purposes at this critical juncture.

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman posted seven receptions for a career-high 103 yards on eight targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Bateman had his first 100-yard performance, and it was a little surprising coming on the heels of Week 13 when he was blanked on just one target. He is still only worth a look as a WR5 heading into Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman was unable to catch his only target in Week 13 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Bateman's previous two games in which he was essentially sharing snaps with Sammy Watkins served as a precursor for his disappointing performance in this one, although it is still surprising that a receiver the team is so infatuated with would ever get shut out - especially against Pittsburgh's short-handed secondary. With three straight duds on his resume as a tertiary option at best in a struggling offense, Bateman belongs on fantasy benches in most leagues.

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman caught all four of his targets for 31 yards in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers keep waiting for the breakout game to come for Bateman, but it is hard for him to do so when Lamar Jackson isn't clicking on all cylinders - and that was definitely the case in this contest. The other problem is that the rookie is clearly behind Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown on the priority list. Especially on a team that still considers itself a run-based unit, it will be difficult for Bateman to be anything more than a WR3 in fantasy.

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman posted three receptions for 29 yards on six targets in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Bateman was a hot addition off the waiver wire with Hollywood Brown missing due to a thigh injury, but the rookie first-round pick did next to nothing. His fantasy appeal remains limited to deeper leagues heading into Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns.

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Bateman will have a few days to recover, so he still has a good chance to play in the Week 11 game. He has posted 80 yards in two of the last three games and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues if he is active for the game.

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman caught six passes for 80 yards against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: Bateman matched Mark Andrews' eight targets with both trailing Marquise Brown's 13. The fact that the rookie was far more involved than a returning Sammy Watkins (1-7-0 on three targets) is a very encouraging sign, and Bateman's steady work since coming back from his own injury should be enough to earn him a roster spot in most leagues.
