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.

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.
Jul 28 - 8:04 PM

The Baltimore Sun suggests Kamar Aiken is a legitimate competitor for the Ravens' No. 2 receiver job across from Steve Smith.

His competition is first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman. The Sun also leaves the door open for Aiken to serve as a third wide receiver, "or splitting time with Marlon Brown" behind Smith and Perriman. Our money is on Perriman winning the job, but we wouldn't entirely sleep on Aiken. Aiken is running with the first-team offense at spring practices, where he's "executed a series of acrobatic sideline catches and flashed speed on deep routes for touchdowns."
Jun 12 - 2:02 PM

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken is running with the first-team offense at OTAs.

The Ravens aren't handing the job opposite Steve Smith Sr. to first-round pick Breshad Perriman just yet. While Perriman's talent is very likely to win out in the end, he had enough red flags coming out of UCF that this could be something of a battle to watch. Aiken is no slouch himself, running 4.45 at 6-foot-1, 213 and coming off a 24-267-3 line as a sub-package receiver.
Jun 3 - 10:30 PM

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken is in the mix for a starting job right now.

Right now, the Ravens have senior citizen Steve Smith, Aiken, Marlon Brown and Michael Campanaro at wideout. They'll likely add talent to the position at some point in the draft, but Ozzie Newsome never drafts for need. So Aiken, a longtime reserve and special teamer, is at least in the mix for a rotational role in a Marc Trestman scheme that will have pass-game volume.
Apr 21 - 11:33 AM

Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Kamar Aiken to a one-year, $585,000 contract.

A fifth-year undrafted free agent, Aiken scored three touchdowns over the Ravens' final five games last season. For the regular season, he caught 24 passes for 267 yards. He'll have the inside track on a roster spot, especially with Torrey Smith poised to walk in free agency.
Mar 9 - 3:57 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 1-of-2 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Aiken capped off Baltimore's opening drive with a diving 19-yard score. It was his fourth touchdown of 2014-15, and third since the calendar flipped to December. A fourth-year undrafted free agent, Aiken posted a 24/267/3 regular-season line after previously never catching a pass. A restricted free agent going on 26, Aiken should be back in 2015 to compete for one of the Ravens' final receiver spots.
Jan 10 - 9:15 PM

Kamar Aiken was held without a catch on one target in Baltimore's Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

With Torrey Smith (knee) active, Aiken was sent back to a deep-reserve and special-teams role. He didn't go unnoticed, however, as Aiken scooped up a blocked punt for an 11-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Marlon Brown ran as the Ravens' No. 3 receiver and led the team with 5-66 on five targets.

Filling in for Torrey Smith (knee), Kamar Aiken caught 6-of-7 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 14 win over the Dolphins.

Aiken rotated series with Smith early on, but took over opposite Steve Smith Sr. after Torrey's pain apparently became too much. It was a nice day for the fourth-year undrafted free agent, but one he won't repeat even if Smith is inactive for Week 15.
