  • BAL Wide Receiver #3
    All of the Ravens’ inactives are key players dealing with a myriad of injuries. OBJ (ankle) and Hill (toe) were ruled out on Friday, which could pave the ways for Gus Edwards and Rashod Bateman to have more impactful days for fantasy. Edwards can be treated as a touchdown-dependent RB2, while Rashod Bateman is a fringe WR3/WR4 in what looks like a very wet day in Baltimore.
  • BAL Cornerback #44
    Humprey continues to be sidelined with a foot injury that he suffered in the preseason and will now miss his third-straight game to open the season. Ronald Darby and Rock Ya-Sin will be leaned on as the Ravens’ top two corners for this week, while Marcus Williams (pectoral) and EDGE Odafe Oweh (ankle) will also be sidelined.
  • BAL Tackle #79
    Stanley, along with center Tyler Linderbaum (ankle) will both miss their second-consecutive game with their ailments. Neither was expected to play in Week 3 after missing practice all week, but a Week 4 return could be on the radar considering neither was placed on injured reserve after their injuries. Patrick Mekari will take Stanley place along the left side of the line, while center Sam Mustipher is expected to fill in for Linderbaum.
  • BAL Running Back #43
    Hill was absent from all three practices this week, and the Ravens signed Kenyan Drake on Wednesday, signaling that Hill was unlikely to play on Sunday. Hill’s absence will make the Ravens backfield a weird one to rely on for fantasy purposes. Melvin Gordon was active in Week 2 but didn’t receive a touch, and Drake only recently joined the team but spent the preseason with the Colts. Gus Edwards feels like the only running back on this team to trust in Week 3, and will be a touchdown dependent RB2/RB3.
  • BAL Wide Receiver #3
    Beckham missed all three practices this week despite head coach John Harbaugh downplaying the severity of his injury. OBJ did try to play on his injured ankle in Week 2 against the Bengals, so it’s possible he’ll only miss one or two games, but we know he’s at least out for Week 3 against the Colts. Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor could both benefit from OBJ’s absence, but it was Bateman who led all receivers in second-half snaps (21) after OBJ was ruled out.
  • BAL Wide Receiver #3
    Beckham suffered an ankle sprain in the Ravens’ Week 2 win over the Bengals, and has now missed back-to-back practices to start the week. Head coach John Harbaugh downplayed the severity of Beckham’s injury on Monday, but his absences suggest there’s at least a chance he could miss Week 3 against the Colts. If Beckham is unable to go, Rashod Bateman and perhaps Nelson Agholor could be in line for busy days. Agholor surprised everyone last week with a 5-63-1 line in the Ravens’ win.
  • BAL Running Back #43
    Hill is dealing with a turf toe injury that could sideline him for Week 3 against the Colts. His injury is likely what led the team to sign Kenyan Drake, who could be in line for backup duties behind Gus Edwards if Hill is unable to go. Edwards would have the most to gain if Hill sits, while Drake and Melvin Gordon could sprinkle in on a much lighter note.
  • BAL Running Back #43
    Hill did not practice today and looks like a long-shot to suit up on Sunday. The Ravens signed Kenyan Drake to their practice squad as a potential insurance option. He will likely be called up to the active roster on Saturday. Assuming Hill can’t go, Gus Edwards could handle the bulk of Baltimore’s work between the tackle. He will sit on the RB2/3 border if Hill is ruled out.
  • BAL Wide Receiver #3
    Other Ravens to miss practice were RB Justice Hill (unknown), OL Ronnie Stanley (knee), OL Tyler Linderbaum (ankle), CB Marlon Humphrey (foot), and S Marcus Williams (pec). Earlier in the week head coach John Harbaugh had mentioned that he didn’t believe Beckham’s injury was too serious and that they would manage his reps this week, so this missed practice seems to be one way to limit damage. The more concerning issue for the Ravens is the continued absence of Ronnie Stanley and Tyler Linderbaum. Being down multiple starting offense linemen for a game against the Colts would not be ideal.
  • BAL Running Back #31
    Drake, released by the Colts in August, will return to Baltimore after seeing 109 carries and scoring four touchdowns for the Ravens in spot duty last season. Drake will likely play behind Justice Hill and Gus Edwards, but could see playing time if Hill or Edwards get banged up.
