6.199: Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu, OT, Oregon

Zay Flowers, WR (1.22)

Dynamic wide receiver from Boston College is already building chemistry with Lamar Jackson

Clemson star fortifies the Ravens dominant linebacking crew and could replace Patrick Queen after this season. 

Tavius Robinson, OLB, (4.124)

Seven sacks and five forced fumbles for Ole Miss star last season. 

Additions

Free agent signings: WR Odell Beckham, WR Nelson Agholor, CB Rock Ya-Sin

Odell Beckham, WR

Odell Beckham  Baltimore Ravens 2023 Fantasy Football Offseason Roundup

Can the 30-year-old wideout rekindle his All-Pro skills? Caught five touchdowns after getting traded to Rams in the second half of 2021, then tore his ACL in the Super Bowl. Massive upside with Lamar Jackson

Nelson Agholor, WR

The 30-year-old Agholor regularly finds his way to the end zone, with 28 receiving touchdowns since 2017. 

Departures

RB Kenyan Drake, WR Demarcus Robinson, WR Sammy Watkins, TE Josh Oliver, OT Ja’Wuan James, OG Ben Powers, Edge Justin Houston, Edge Steven Means, Edge Jason Pierre-Paul, DE Calais Campbell, CB Kyle Fuller, CB Marcus Peters, S Chuck Clark 

Kenyan Drake, RB

Veteran running back is the odd man out with J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill all healthy. 

Sammy Watkins, WR

NFL career could be over for 30-year-old wideout who caught only three passes in three games with Ravens in 2022. 

Demarcus Robinson, WR

Led Baltimore wide receivers in catches (48), targets (75) and yards (458), always reliable. Robinson was the Ravens’ only receiver to play in all 17 games.

Ben Powers, OG

Signed four-year, $52 million deal with the Broncos. Powers is an elite run-blocker and strong all-around guard. 

Justin Houston, Edge

Led Ravens with 9.5 sacks, but turned 34 years old in January. Totaled 14 sacks in two seasons with Baltimore. 

Jason Pierre-Paul, Edge

The 34-year-old Pierre-Paul finished with just three sacks and 18 quarterback hurries in 14 games played. 

Calais Campbell, DE

The six-time Pro Bowl selection was released to clear $7 million in cap space. Played 41 games over three years with the Ravens, posting 11 sacks and 36 quarterback hits.

Chuck Clark, S

Veteran leader was traded to the Jets to clear over $4 million in cap space. 

 

Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Outlook

The six most interesting Ravens fantasy options:

Lamar Jackson, QB

2019 MVP Lamar Jackson has the best situation of his career. An aggressive offensive coordinator in Todd Monken and a deep cadre of offensive weapons. 

J.K. Dobbins, RB

J.K. Dobbins, much to his frustration, was eased into his workload last year after recovering from ACL surgery. The 24-year-old RB with 4.3 speed is ready for a big season. 

Rashod Bateman, WR

Rashod Bateman Baltimore Ravens 2023 Fantasy Football Offseason Roundup

The talented first-round pick from 2021 has massive upside, but needs to be healthy. Rashod Bateman has only played in 16 games during his first two seasons. 

Odell Beckham, WR

Odell Beckham has tantalizing upside for the most talented receiver in Baltimore since Steve Smith

Zay Flowers, WR

Speedy (4.42) rookie wideout Zay Flowers brings massive big-play ability 

Mark Andrews, TE

One of the best tight ends in the NFL, Mark Andrews is just two years removed from the overall TE1 season. 

2023 Outlook

DraftKings Sportsbook Wins Over/Under: 9.5 Wins (-170, +150)
AFC North odds: +220

Despite all the injuries last year, the Ravens still won 10 games and made the playoffs. Just a remarkable performance. The Bengals’ recent success makes every team in this division a value, especially Baltimore at +220. 

The additions of Beckham and Zay Flowers provide critical insurance if Bateman is slowed again by injuries. The Ravens even have depth at the tight end position with Isaiah Likely. Head coach John Harbaugh needs to replace a lot on defense, and Baltimore has a brutal second-half schedule. They will play against Cleveland, Cincinnati, at the Chargers, at Jacksonville, at San Francisco, Miami and Pittsburgh all between Week 10 and Week 17. While their win total is heavily juiced to the over, I prefer backing the Ravens to win the AFC North, with consideration for over 11.5 wins at +180.
