Kamar Aiken caught 6-of-10 targets for 80 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Browns on Monday night.
He paced the Ravens in targets by a wide margin, as Buck Allen was second with five looks. Aiken's skill set, which isn't special, meshes well with Matt Schaub's noodle arm. Aiken runs routes in the short-to-intermediate areas of the field, and that's where Schaub likes to throw it. Aiken had a nice 27-yard catch-and-run on a 1st-and-20 play and scored a 15-yard touchdown on an out route, beating slot CB K'Waun Williams. Locked into a floor of 8-10 targets weekly, Aiken is a solid, though not very special, WR3 heading into Week 13 against Miami. Dec 1 - 12:37 AM

Kamar Aiken caught 5-of-8 targets for 50 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 11 win over the Rams.

Aiken and Crockett Gillmore each saw a team-high eight targets. Aiken scored the lone touchdown from three yards out after a Todd Gurley lost fumble at the Ravens' 42-yard line. Aiken will continue to pace the Ravens' receivers in targets, but doesn't have any big-play ability. He gets by on volume. Treat Aiken as a low-upside WR3 next week on the road against the Browns with Matt Schaub as his new quarterback after Joe Flacco tore his ACL on Sunday.
Nov 22 - 5:22 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 7-of-14 targets for 73 yards in the Ravens' Week 10 loss to the Jaguars.

With Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles') done for the season, Aiken stepped in as the No. 1 receiver in Smith's first absence. Aiken was the target on Joe Flacco's first nine throws that went to wide receivers. He dropped one early and was unable to reel in either of the two deep balls, but it's clear Aiken will be the target leader at receiver the remainder of the season. He's not a big playmaker, so is going to need plenty of volume to pile up stats. Aiken will be a WR3 next week against the Rams.
Nov 15 - 6:10 PM

Kamar Aiken secured 6-of-6 targets for 62 yards in the Ravens' Week 8 win over the Chargers.

A possession receiver for whom the Ravens do dial up occasional designed downfield shot plays, Aiken piled up chain-moving gains Sunday, primarily taking on Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers. As Steve Smith Sr. ruptured his Achilles' tendon against San Diego and is done for the year, Aiken is looking at No. 1 wideout duties for the Ravens the rest of the way. Baltimore goes on a Week 9 bye before hosting the Jaguars in Week 10.
Nov 1 - 4:57 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 1-of-3 targets for six yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Cardinals on Monday night.

His three targets were sixth-most on the team on a night Flacco threw 40 passes. With Steve Smith Sr. healthy, Aiken has fallen back into WR4/5 territory.
Oct 27 - 12:46 AM

Kamar Aiken secured 3-of-8 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to San Francisco.

Quiet most of the game with Steve Smith Sr. (back) active, Aiken finally made his presence felt on a terrific two-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter delivered on a rope by a rolling-out Joe Flacco. Aiken has been a pedestrian performer as the Ravens' No. 2 wideout, and was stretched thin while trying to fill in as the Ravens' No. 1 in Smith's absence. Aiken will be no more than a WR4/5 when Baltimore visits Arizona in Week 7.
Oct 18 - 7:58 PM

Kamar Aiken secured 4-of-9 targets for 78 yards in the Ravens' Week 5 loss to the Browns.

Targeted on several bombs, Aiken caught one for a gain of 48 in the first half, beating Browns CB Tramon Williams. With Steve Smith Sr. (back) tentatively set for Week 6 return, Aiken's fantasy value is in limbo. Joe Flacco did treat him like a No. 1 wideout in Sunday's loss, targeting Aiken a team-high nine times while FB Kyle Juszczyk ranked second with six. Barring a Smith Sr. setback, Aiken will be a WR4/5 when the Ravens take on the 49ers next.
Oct 11 - 5:11 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 5-of-7 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Week 4 win over the Steelers.

With Steve Smith Sr. in and out of the game with minor injuries, Aiken nearly doubled his 2015 receiving total. He made a beautiful grab on his third quarter touchdown, basket catching a Joe Flacco lob to the back of the end zone. Aiken has made some big catches this season, but even were Sr. to miss Week 5 (which is unlikely), he'd be little more than a WR5.
Oct 2 - 12:42 AM

Kamar Aiken secured 5-of-7 targets for 89 yards in the Ravens' Week 2 loss to the Raiders.

Sharing time with Marlon Brown opposite Steve Smith Sr., Aiken made a fourth-quarter impact with gains of 26 and 38 yards, the latter of which occurred on a catch-and-run crosser. Aiken is a serviceable real-life NFL role player, but he's stretched thin as a starter. Aiken won't be a Week 3 fantasy option against the Bengals' stingy secondary.
Sep 20 - 8:03 PM

Ravens No. 2 receiver Kamar Aiken caught just 1-of-3 targets in Baltimore's Week 1 loss to the Broncos, losing three yards.

Aiken drew fewer targets than FB Kyle Juszczyk. Aiken's on-paper role suggests he'll draw a decent amount of looks in the absence of Breshad Perriman (knee), but the reality is that it's a free for all behind Steve Smith Sr. Aiken can be dropped in re-draft leagues.
Sep 13 - 8:31 PM

Kamar Aiken is expected to start opposite Steve Smith in the Ravens' season opener.

With Breshad Perriman (knee) perhaps out until October, Aiken should start at least the first two games of the season. Aiken caught 24-of-32 targets for 267 yards and three touchdowns last season. He is worth an add in most leagues.

Sep 7 - 12:16 PM

Kamar Aiken caught two passes for 29 yards in the Ravens' third preseason game.

With Breshad Perriman (knee) still sidelined, Aiken once again got the start. He appears to clearly be the No. 2 behind Steve Smith, making him worth a late-round flier. Aiken has three catches for 42 yards this preseason.
Aug 29 - 9:58 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Aiken's second target was poorly-thrown ball that resulted in a Joe Flacco interception. Running with the first-team offense in the absence of Breshad Perriman, Aiken has just one grab through two preseason games. He's not on the re-draft radar.
Aug 22 - 11:59 PM

Kamar Aiken is listed with the first-team offense on the Ravens' first depth chart of training camp.

Crockett Gillmore is also ahead of rookie Maxx Williams at tight end, as expected. Aiken's primary competition is first-round pick Breshad Perriman, who opened camp with the first-team offense but "bruised and strained" his knee in the Ravens' first practice, and has been on the shelf ever since. To win the starting job, Perriman needs to get back on the field to beat out the steady Aiken.
Aug 6 - 7:02 PM

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken "consistently" practiced with the first-team offense at spring workouts, ahead of Breshad Perriman.

The Ravens aren't handing a starting job to first-round pick Perriman, who "needs to become more consistent" after showing a propensity for dropped passes in OTAs and minicamp. Perriman also struggled with drops at UCF. Unlike the Panthers last year with Kelvin Benjamin, the Ravens seem hesitant to throw Perriman into the fire. This is a camp battle to watch throughout August.
