Kamar Aiken caught 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards in Baltimore's third preseason game.
Even with Ben Watson going down on the first play of the game, Aiken was a distant second to Mike Wallace in targets. Aiken has still had a solid preseason and may have the most secure role in the Ravens' pass-catcher corps. Aiken's ability to play all three receiver positions should keep him among Baltimore's top-three wideouts if/when Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles) comes back. Aug 27 - 8:59 PM

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Clifton Brown reports Kamar Aiken is the Ravens' No. 2 receiver heading into camp.

In a show of how confusing the receiver situation is in Baltimore, ESPN's Jamison Hensley listed Mike Wallace as the No. 2 receiver on Thursday. Steve Smith Sr. is the consensus No. 1, but that assumes he is healthy coming off an Achilles' tear at age 37. It is likely someone in the Ravens' receiving corps returns solid fantasy value this season, but it is basically impossible to pick who that will be at this point.
Jul 22 - 2:39 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec considers Kamar Aiken to still be the Ravens' "best option" as the No. 2 receiver.

Aiken has become the forgotten man after the addition of Mike Wallace and returns to health by Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee). As the lone member of this quartet for the second half of last season, Aiken produced a 75-944-5 line as the Ravens' No. 1 receiver. An underrated athlete with a workmanlike game, Aiken ran a 4.45 forty at 6-foot-1, 213 coming out of UCF in 2011. Perriman figures to get every opportunity to win the No. 2 job, but Aiken won't go away quietly.

Ravens re-signed WR Kamar Aiken to a one-year, $2.55 million contract.

A restricted free agent, Aiken was offered a second-round tender. Aiken turned 127 targets into 75 catches for 944 yards and five scores last season, but his role in the offense should be dramatically reduced with Mike Wallace in the fold and Steve Smith (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) expected back healthy.

Ravens extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent Kamar Aiken.

The tender is worth $2.55 million. With Steve Smith going down with an Achilles' injury and Breshad Perriman sidelined by a knee injury, Aiken was thrust into the limelight last season, catching 75-of-127 passes for 944 yards and five scores. Baltimore will hope Aiken does not have to fill in as the No. 1 receiver moving forward, but he is a quality complementary weapon who should thrive in a secondary role. Aiken is the clear front-runner for the No. 3 job entering the offseason program.
Mar 8 - 12:12 PM

CSN Mid-Atlantic confirms the Ravens are expected to tender restricted free agent Kamar Aiken.

Re-signing Aiken is an easy decision with the Ravens lack of receiver depth. Aiken managed a 75/944/5 line with Steve Smith injured during the second half and Breshad Perriman missing his entire rookie year. The Ravens shouldn't count on Aiken as more than a No. 3 wideout.
Jan 22 - 6:21 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 5-of-13 targets for 76 yards in the Ravens' Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

Aiken had a pretty solid season as the Ravens' No. 2 receiver. Of course, after Steve Smith Sr. went down with a torn Achilles' in Week 8, Aiken took over as the default No. 1 guy. From Weeks 10-17, Aiken never saw fewer than seven targets in a game and averaged 10.25 targets per contest. He finished the year with a 75-944-5 line. Aiken will be a restricted free agent this offseason and should be slapped with the second-round tender as a former UDFA. Aiken will likely be the No. 3 receiver next season behind Smith Sr. and Breshad Perriman, the 2015 first-round pick who missed his entire rookie year with a knee injury.
Jan 3 - 11:29 PM

Kamar Aiken caught all eight of his targets for 66 yards Week 16 against the Steelers.

Aiken did not make any highlight plays, but he was a reliable option for Ryan Mallett all day. He left the game briefly in the second half with a hand issue, but he returned to the game. Aiken said after the game he did not expect the hand injury to result in any missed time. Aiken now has at least seven targets in each of his last seven games and will remain a reliable WR3 next week against the Bengals.

Kamar Aiken secured 8-of-12 targets for 128 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 15 loss to Kansas City.

A magnet for Jimmy Clausen's passes all game, Aiken's biggest play occurred on a Hail Mary touchdown catch at the end of the first half. He also made a number of terrific sideline receptions. Down the fantasy stretch, Aiken has settled in as a reliable WR3 option every week. His box-score outlook will be favorable against the Steelers' sub-par secondary in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 04:40:00 PM

Kamar Aiken secured 5-of-7 targets for 90 yards in the Ravens' Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.

Fantasy owners forced to start Aiken against Richard Sherman's Seahawks should be more than pleased with this result; Jimmy Clausen hit Aiken on a few jump balls and he was Baltimore's lone consistent means of moving the ball in an impossible matchup. Regardless of Matt Schaub's (shoulder, chest) availability, Aiken will be a low-end WR3 option when the Ravens take on the Chiefs next.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:18:00 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 6-of-11 targets for 48 yards in Baltimore's Week 13 loss to Miami.

Aiken's 11 targets were behind only Buck Allen, but he couldn't get anything going downfield with a checkdown-heavy Matt Schaub. He was mostly shut down by Brent Grimes. Aiken isn't more than a volume-dependent WR3. He's not a recommended fantasy play against Seattle in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 05:19:00 PM

Kamar Aiken's 32 targets over the last three games is tied for fifth-most over that span.

Aiken has the seventh-most receptions with 18 and has 203 receiving yards and two touchdowns over that span. He has the twelfth-most fantasy points among wide receivers over the last three weeks. Even with Matt Schaub running the show, Aiken should remain a high-volume WR3 the rest of the way.
Thu, Dec 3, 2015 11:05:00 AM

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 05:22:00 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.
