Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com expects the Ravens to employ a "three-headed monster" at running back this year.
Mink considers Terrance West the favorite for early-down work with Danny Woodhead serving as the go-to back on passing downs. He also expects a "bigger role" for Kenneth Dixon, though obviously that won't happen until he returns from his four-game suspension. Baltimore has led the league in passing attempts each of the last two seasons and should come out throwing again in 2017. Of Baltimore's three backs, Woodhead's volume is the safest. Jul 7 - 4:39 PM

Ravens senior offensive assistant Greg Roman said, "I'm looking forward to [Terrance West] toting the rock this year."

West has been considered the Ravens' starter during Kenneth Dixon's four-game suspension, but Roman is suggesting that West will not be benched when Dixon returns. Earlier this month, ESPN's Jamison Hensley called West the "unquestioned starter." Dixon and West will battle for carries, and Danny Woodhead will be used on passing downs and in the red zone.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Terrance West has "looked good" this offseason.

"I think he worked really hard in the offseason," Harbaugh added, "and he has improved." The coach tabbed West as the starter in late-March, and nothing notable has changed on the depth chart since. In fact, ESPN's Jamison Hensley called West the "unquestioned starter" in the article relaying Harbaugh's comments. Danny Woodhead is a threat both on passing downs and in the red zone and Kenneth Dixon will be back from his suspension after four games, but West still looks like a value in the double-digit rounds.

Ravens re-signed restricted free agent RB Terrance West to a one-year, $1.797 million contract.

The Ravens entered last week's draft as one of the NFL's likeliest teams to draft a running back, yet they emerged without a single skill-position player added. That means West is sitting atop the depth chart in Baltimore, at least until Kenneth Dixon returns from his four-game suspension. West totaled career highs in yards from scrimmage (1,010) and touchdowns (6) last season. He'll be worth a mid- to late-round look in fantasy drafts.
May 8 - 5:45 PM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes "everything has fallen in place" for Terrance West this offseason.

Hensley notes the hiring of coach Greg Roman, the four-game suspension of Kenneth Dixon, and the lack of competition added in free agency or the draft as wins for West. Danny Woodhead might quibble with the last point, but he is probably not a real threat to West's work on early downs. Coach John Harbaugh said West was atop the depth chart at the end of March, and he has a good chance to stay there throughout at least the early part of the season.

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.
Mon, Dec 19, 2016 11:11:00 AM

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.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 05:04:00 PM

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.
