Date:

Kamar Aiken (thigh) is active for Week 7 against the Jets.

Aiken played nearly 80 percent of Baltimore's Week 6 snaps with Steve Smith Sr. inactive, but he finished fourth on the Ravens in targets. Aiken does have a good Week 7 matchup. He's worth a look if you're desperate at wideout.
Oct 23 - 12:01 PM

Kamar Aiken (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Jets.

Aiken showed up on the injury report Thursday but has practiced on a limited basis the last two days. He'll be ready to roll on Sunday. Aiken's role takes on greater significance with Steve Smith Sr. still nursing an ankle sprain. Regardless, he isn't a recommended fantasy play.
Oct 21 - 3:00 PM

Kamar Aiken (thigh) was limited at Thursday's practice.

It's not ideal, but Aiken should be fine for Sunday's game against the Jets. Aiken earned a season-high six targets with Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) sidelined in Week 6. We'd expect him to see a similar workload on Sunday.
Oct 20 - 3:36 PM

Kamar Aiken hauled in four-of-six targets for 64 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to the Giants.

It was a quiet 64 yards for Aiken, but it was still a vast improvement from his previous five outings. Aiken entered Sunday’s game with just 28 receiving yards all season. He tallied 52 just in the second half on Sunday including 22 on a gut-check fourth-down conversion late in the fourth quarter. Aiken’s role will probably disappear when Steve Smith Sr. returns from his ankle injury. The Ravens will be back at Metlife Stadium next week for a date against the Jets.
Oct 16 - 5:47 PM

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken failed to reel in any of his three targets in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Redskins.

It's only notable in that Aiken's playing time will rise if Steve Smith (ankle) is sidelined for an extended period. Smith was playing a ton of snaps in the slot. Aiken is the Ravens' next-best slot receiver with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman stationed on the boundaries.
Oct 9 - 4:36 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 3-of-4 targets for nine yards in the Ravens' Week 4 loss to the Raiders.

A rotational slot receiver behind Steve Smith and Mike Wallace, Aiken is playing about a third of the Ravens' offensive snaps while sharing time with Breshad Perriman and rookie Chris Moore. Aiken has no value in re-draft leagues.
Oct 2 - 5:25 PM

Kamar Aiken (thigh) is questionable for Week 4 against the Raiders.

Aiken has practiced fully the last two days and is obviously in no danger of missing Week 4. The real problem is that Aiken's role in the Ravens' offense has disappeared. After leading the team in yards last season, Aiken has taken a backseat to Steve Smith Sr., Mike Wallace and even Dennis Pitta in 2016. He wasn't even targeted in Week 3.
Sep 30 - 3:54 PM

Kamar Aiken (thigh) returned to Ravens practice Thursday, getting in a "full" session.

Aiken will be good to go for Week 4, but has fallen off the map in the Ravens' receiver corps. He has three catches for 19 yards.
Sep 29 - 7:53 PM

Kamar Aiken didn't catch a pass on one target in the Week 2 win over the Browns.

Just days after saying he wanted to play more offense, Aiken appeared to play less, as he looked to be the No. 4 or 5 receiver after being the No. 3 in the opener. Aiken has no season-long value at the moment.
Sep 18 - 6:00 PM

Kamar Aiken said he "definitely wants(s) to be out there more" on offense.

Aiken played just 36-of-68 snaps in the Week 1 win over the Bills as the No. 3 receiver in Baltimore's five-man rotation. He made the most of his two targets, catching both for 14 yards. "I would much rather play more receiver, but for right now, what the team needs is special teams, so I'll do special teams," Aiken said. Aiken led the Ravens in receiving last season, but he probably needs a Steve Smith Sr. or Mike Wallace injury to come back into significant playing time.
Sep 16 - 9:17 AM

Kamar Aiken caught 2-of-2 targets for 14 yards in the Ravens' Week 1 win over the Bills.

Aiken rotated in behind starters Steve Smith Sr. and Mike Wallace and is probably going to get lost in this committee if everybody stays healthy. Breshad Perriman and rookie Chris Moore also saw snaps in the rotation. Aiken could need an injury to come into some WR3 value at some point this season.
Sep 11 - 6:21 PM

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.
