Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Terrance West is currently the No. 1 running back on the depth chart.
That could certainly change during the offseason, but it is a reminder West is likely to retain a role in Baltimore's backfield, especially with Kenneth Dixon suspended for the first four games. West rushed 193 times for 774 yards (4 YPC) and five touchdowns last season. Mar 28 - 11:31 AM

Ravens tendered restricted free agent RB Terrance West at the original-round level.

It sets him up for a $1.797 million salary. West was as pedestrian as usual last season, averaging 4.01 yards per carry -- his career high -- and losing playing time to promising rookie Kenneth Dixon as the year progressed. West shouldn't be guaranteed a spot in the Ravens' running back committee for 2017.
Mar 7 - 9:37 PM

Terrance West managed 18 yards on five carries and caught 4-of-5 targets for 17 yards in the Ravens' Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

A pedestrian back who belongs in the JAG conversation, West had some quality fantasy moments this year based only on sheer opportunity. He was outplayed by Kenneth Dixon down the stretch and will have to compete for a roster spot in 2017. West turns 26 later this month. An impending restricted free agent, West figures to receive the lowest possible tender when they are handed out in March.
Jan 1 - 4:17 PM

Terrance West rushed 10 times for 27 yards and caught all three of his targets for 28 yards in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

West got the start, but he shared time pretty evenly with Kenneth Dixon while both backs lost passing-down work to FB Kyle Juszczyk, who played a large percentage of the fourth quarter with the Ravens in comeback mode. West did not find much success on the ground, but he did do good work in the passing game including a long gain on a swing pass in the third quarter. That play was basically his final contribution, however. West will look to do better in the season finale in Cincinnati next week, but the now three-way timeshare makes him a low-upside fantasy option at best.

Terrance West played 26-of-58 snaps (45%) Week 15 against the Eagles.

After being out-snapped 42-14 by Kenneth Dixon against the Patriots in Week 14, West took back control of the backfield against the Eagles, out-snapping Dixon 25-15. This situation is a fluid as any backfield in the league week-to-week, making it difficult to trust either back as anything more than a FLEX play.

Terrance West rushed 13 times for 77 yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for 45 yards in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Eagles.

Many assumed the backfield reins had been handed to Kenneth Dixon after last week's Monday night breakout against the Patriots, but Dixon took a backseat with only six touches to West's 17 in this game. This backfield could conceivably continue to flip flop on a weekly basis. Baltimore's Week 16 matchup against Pittsburgh suggests Dixon will be the better fantasy bet in that game.

The Ravens have averaged 21.1 fewer rushing yards since OC Marty Mornhinweg took over for Marc Trestman.

Trestman, of course, was fired in part because of his failure to commit to the running game. Since his dismissal, the Ravens have run the ball almost two fewer times per game. All of this is bad news for Terrance West, who appears to be behind Kenneth Dixon on passing downs and is perhaps losing his early-down role to the rookie as well. Even in a good matchup against the Eagles, West is not a realistic fantasy option this week.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 09:23:00 AM

Terrance West rushed two times for two yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for 24 yards in the Ravens' Week 14 loss to the Patriots.

According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, West was out-snapped 42-14 by Kenneth Dixon on Monday night. Dixon was in on 60 percent of the snaps, marking the first time this season he's played more than 45 percent of the downs. The Ravens fell behind 23-3 at one point, which certainly played a role in Dixon's heavier usage. He's better as a pass catcher than West, and the Ravens weren't even trying to run the ball in this one. Dixon ended up leading the team with 11 targets. Things should be closer to even next week against the Eagles, but Dixon was impressive in the second half Monday and may have earned the larger role moving forward. West will be tough to trust as anything more than an RB3 in Week 15.

Terrance West supplied 50 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries and also caught three passes for 18 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

The Ravens barely acknowledged their running game until late as West rushed just four times for 11 yards in the first half. West caught the Dolphins napping on a three-yard touchdown catch on Baltimore's opening drive. He added to his haul with a nine-yard rushing score in the fourth quarter. West and Kenneth Dixon were announced as co-starters, though West won the touch battle 13-10. West has averaged just 10.3 carries over his last three games. He’ll be a borderline RB2 next week in Foxboro. That will be a Monday Night game.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 04:45:00 PM

Terrance West managed 48 yards on 13 carries and caught 3-of-4 targets for 16 yards in the Ravens' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

For the first time this year, West was out-snapped and out-touched by Kenneth Dixon, who appears to be emerging as Baltimore's lead back. The Ravens have never seemed committed to West, even in spurts where he has run well. He's devolving into a risky flex option ahead of a Week 13 date with the Dolphins.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 06:47:00 PM

Terrance West rushed eight times for 42 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 11 loss to the Cowboys.

West was running hot early in this one, piling up 34 yards on his first three carries, including an 18-yard touchdown right through the middle of the defense in the first quarter. As they always seem to do, the Ravens moved away from the run game and threw the ball 35 times on 52 plays. Kenneth Dixon also was mixed in to split work with West. West added an 11-yard catch. He's become impossible to trust with the Ravens unable to decide how they want to play on offense. West will be a back-end RB2 next week against the Bengals.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 06:36:00 PM

Terrance West totaled 65 yards on 21 carries while securing one-of-two targets for 12 yards Thursday in the Ravens' Week 10 win over the Browns.

It was better than West’s previous two outings but still nothing to write home about. The 21 carries were his most since Week 6 against the Giants. West has averaged a paltry 2.73 yards per carry over his last four outings. He’ll be a back-end RB2 against Dallas in Week 11.
Fri, Nov 11, 2016 12:49:00 AM

Terrance West rushed 15 times for 21 yards in the Ravens' Week 9 win over the Steelers.

He added a six-yard reception. West got the start, but was mostly rotating with Kenneth Dixon. By Pro Football Focus' count, West out-snapped Dixon just 30-20. He out-touched Dixon 16-11. If there's a silver lining, it's that Dixon was just as ineffective as West. Despite today's horrid outing and burgeoning timeshare, West will remain in the RB2 mix against the Browns' bottom-two run defense in Week 10.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 05:34:00 PM

Terrance West rushed eight times for 10 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.

He had a 49-yard run negated by a holding penalty on LG Alex Lewis, and was barely heard from otherwise. It's not surprising West struggled against the run-tough Jets, but it is surprising that he only saw eight touches in a game where the Ravens' backup running backs got next to no work. In 12-team leagues, West is worth holding onto through the Ravens' Week 8 bye. Baltimore faces a struggling Pittsburgh run defense in its next game.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 04:30:00 PM

Terrance West cruised to 87 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries and caught four-of-six targets for 36 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to the Giants.

West got off to a sluggish start before breaking off a 33-yard run in the second quarter. He finished the first half with 12 carries for 60 yards and a touchdown while adding two catches for 20 yards. West had a chance to find pay-dirt in the third quarter after Mike Wallace’s 70-yard catch set Baltimore up with a first-and-goal at the three-yard-line. Instead West was stuffed three times on the next four plays including on fourth down from the one. West redeemed himself by punching in a two-yard score with 2:04 remaining in the fourth quarter to give Baltimore a three-point lead. He’s now rushed for 295 yards and three touchdowns over his last three contests. West will be an obvious RB2 against the Jets in Week 7.
