Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list on Tuesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: The ACL injury Mitchell suffered in Week 15 is a sad end to what was a brief moment of brilliance. Given how late in the season his torn ACL occurred, it seems unlikely that the undrafted free agent will be able to take part in training camp or start the 2024 regular season on time. The Ravens will move forward with Gus Edwards as the lead back and Justice Hill as the change-of-pace/primary passing-down option.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (knee) suffered a torn ACL, according to sources Monday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Mitchell was already expected to miss the remainder of the season due to a significant knee injury he suffered Sunday night. He's expected to make a full recovery, and Gus Edwards likely will be an RB3 option moving forward.

Updating an earlier report, Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (knee) has a "serious injury" to his knee, according to head coach John Harbaugh, who added that "it looks like he won't be back for the rest of the season."
Huddle Up: The injury to Mitchell robs Baltimore of one of its most explosive players and thrusts Gus Edwards back into a prominent role. Justice Hill could also see more work, and the team will reportedly elevate Melvin Gordon to the 53-man roster. At this point, only Edwards is guaranteed fantasy value in the final weeks, and even that could be dicey based on a mix of tough matchups and potential seeding considerations.

Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell (knee) left the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to a knee injury, and he was unable to put any weight on the knee as he was helped off before being carted off to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Mitchell was having a nice night, running nine times for 73 yards with two receptions for 15 yards, before departing. It appears Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will once again be leaned upon heading into Week 16 if Mitchell is forced to miss time. It's a tough break for fantasy managers, especially after the playoffs, as Mitchell was easily the most explosive Baltimore tailback lately.

Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell rushed nine times for 54 yards in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams, while posting an 8-yard catch on two targets.

Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell ran nine times for a game-best 64 yards in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Mitchell hasn't found the end zone in the past two games, but he has seen his touches continue to grow. He had a career-high 11 total touches on Sunday Night Football, and he can safely be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell had eight carries for 33 yards in a Week 11 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. He added an eight-yard reception.
Huddle Up: While Mitchell's numbers weren't great, his usage was encouraging. He had just five fewer touches than Gus Edwards and seven more than Justice Hill. If his role continues to expand, he could deliver for fantasy owners down the stretch. At worst, he's worth stashing if he's still floating around on waivers.

Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell is averaging 12.3 yards per carry after contact and has forced a broken or missed tackle on nine of his 12 career carries, according to Sports Info Solutions.
Huddle Up: Although he has only logged somewhat significant time in two games, Baltimore is going to have a very hard time keeping Mitchell in something of a specialty role if he proves to be even half this elusive moving forward. To that end, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told the media recently that Mitchell will likely begin to see more work - starting in Week 11 against a Cincinnati Bengals defense that just gave up 150 rushing yards to Devin Singletary. While the Ravens probably will not give the 190-pound Mitchell too much work anytime soon, he has already proven he can do a lot with a little. He is, at worst, a high-end flex option at this point.

Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell will get more snaps in Week 11, head coach John Harbaugh said on Monday, Nov. 13. "Looking back on it, would we have wanted him out there more? Yes," Harbaugh said. "I think that'll factor into this game plan."
Huddle Up: Mitchell has proven to be quite the explosive weapon the past two weeks, with the rookie tallying 200 total yards and two long touchdowns on just 15 touches. Despite only four touches in Week 10, Mitchell still managed to have an impressive day, with a 39-yard touchdown run and a 32-yard reception. That kind of efficiency means there's big upside here should Mitchell find increased work in the Ravens' offense, but unless he fully takes the reins of the rushing attack, Gus Edwards and Lamar Jackson cutting into his opportunities may make it difficult for him to post consistent production when the big play doesn't come. Consider Mitchell a flex option with upside going into Week 11.

Baltimore Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell ended up with three runs for 34 yards and a 39-yard touchdown run in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns, while also adding a 32-yard reception on his only catch on two targets.
Huddle Up: If Mitchell is still available in your fantasy league, he isn't a bad addition to squirrel away on the bench. He had an unexpected 138 rushing yards and a touchdown last week, and two plays of 32 or more yards Sunday. With Gus Edwards going for just 2.2 yards per rushing attempt in Week 10, it's hard to believe the Ravens won't try to work the explosive Mitchell more into the game plan going forward.
