Terrance West notched 45 yards on 10 carries and snagged his only target for eight yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.
West opened the third quarter with a 15-yard burst but averaged just 3.33 yards on his other nine totes. That 15-yard run was the longest by a Raven this season. West outgained Justin Forsett on the ground but Forsett took on a much larger role in the passing game with seven targets compared to only one for West. Neither players will be appealing flex options next week against the Raiders. Sep 25 - 5:48 PM

Terrance West rushed 11 times for 42 yards in the Ravens' Week 2 win over the Browns.

Making his return to Cleveland, West again failed to stand out and was out-touched by Justin Forsett 17-12. West caught 1-of-3 targets for 15 yards but dropped his first pass. Through two weeks, preseason puff-piece star West has rushed for just 74 yards on 23 carries (3.2 YPC). This has become a backfield situation to simply avoid heading into Week 3 at the Jaguars.

Terrance West rushed 12 times for 32 yards in the Ravens' Week 1 win over the Bills.

He caught both of his pass-game targets for six yards. Justin Forsett and West were the only running backs the Ravens dressed in the opener, and the two split work pretty evenly after Forsett got the "start." West figures to be the preferred option near the goal line, but the Ravens never got there with their lone touchdown coming from 66 yards out by Mike Wallace. West will be on the RB3/FLEX map next week against the Browns on the road.
Sep 11 - 5:42 PM

The Ravens are dressing only two running backs for Week 1 against the Bills.

Fullback Kyle Juszczyk will be available as a third running back in case of emergency. Buck Allen, who was expected to open the year as Baltimore's passing-down back, was a healthy scratch. That means backfield work will be split between Justin Forsett and Terrance West. Forsett will get the start but West will have an important role as well. West is likely the favorite for goal-line carries and could make for an interesting RB3 in fantasy.
Sep 11 - 12:01 PM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley calls Terrance West the Ravens' "presumed starter" following Justin Forsett's release.

West outplayed Forsett in training camp and the preseason, earning the promotion. While West is now the favorite for early-down and red-zone work in the Ravens' backfield, pass-catching extraordinaire Buck Allen is also set up for increased usage and could become the Ravens back to own in PPR leagues. Impressive rookie Kenneth Dixon (MCL) will miss the next few weeks.
Sep 3 - 4:19 PM

Terrance West had seven carries for 43 yards in Baltimore's third preseason game.

West played behind Justin Forsett and Kenneth Dixon. He got short-yardage work with the first team, but did most of his damage against backups. With Dixon dealing with a knee injury, West could be the favorite for Baltimore's No. 2 role.
Aug 27 - 9:59 PM

Updating a previous item, Terrance West left Saturday night's preseason game with a jammed finger, but was able to return.

He'll be fine. West saw some run with the first-team offense against the Colts, but he was the No. 3 back through the rotation behind Justin Forsett and Buck Allen. West managed nine yards on three carries with a 19-yard reception before exiting. He worked ahead of rookie Kenneth Dixon.
Aug 20 - 8:58 PM

Terrance West rushed nine times for 25 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' preseason opener against the Panthers.

Justin Forsett got the night off, and Buck Allen received the start. West was next man up and came on with the Ryan Mallett group. West took a pair of handoffs from the one-yard line early in the second quarter, getting stuffed on the first before converting the second for a score. He later scored again from two yards out in the third quarter, suggesting goal-line work could be his calling. West has been a training camp standout and carried it over to game action. As long as he keeps it up, West has a real chance at pushing Forsett and Allen for early-down carries.
Aug 11 - 10:33 PM

Ravens OC Marc Trestman confirmed Terrance West is off to a hot start in training camp.

"He’s running aggressively," Trestman said. "He’s much improved in terms of his understanding of pass protection, which is critical to getting on the field. He’s got a tremendous attitude, in the classroom, on the field." Ravens coaches and beat writers have been talking up West since the spring. It's looking very much like West could have a prominent ball-carrying role to begin the season.
Aug 6 - 11:57 AM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes Terrance West has "put himself in position" to potentially be the starting running back.

West has dropped 15 pounds since the end of last season, and it's showed on the practice field. Per Hensley, West has been the "No. 1 playmaker" on offense through the first week of training camp. "He's hitting holes, making cuts to elude tackles and producing big gains consistently," writes Hensley. Coach John Harbaugh has declined to name a starter, and is letting Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, and West duke it out this preseason. West might finally be realizing his potential after being a wasted third-round pick of the Browns.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports RB Terrance West has "been the Ravens’ most explosive offensive player."

He added West has also "been the most impressive back so far." It is high praise for West, but it does not come out of the blue. West reportedly shined all spring, and coach John Harbaugh said he did a "great job" during the offseason program. He still faces a tough climb to carries in a loaded backfield, but it sounds like he is well on his way to a roster spot.
Aug 2 - 11:16 AM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said RB Terrance West did a "great job" during the offseason program.

"I would say he's in the best shape of his life," Harbaugh said. "I think he's really done a good job with improving on this spring, and I can't wait to see him in training camp." Harbaugh's comments jibe with what beat reporters observed this spring. West faces an uphill climb to fantasy relevance in a loaded backfield, but it looks like he has the inside track on a roster spot.
Jul 23 - 11:09 AM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec said Terrance West is "leaner and more explosive" than in the past.

While the "best shape of his life" narrative is always eye-roll inducing, there are plenty of backs who have taken the next step simply by getting in shape. Reportedly down 15 pounds, West could be the next in that long line, but he faces a tough climb to relevance in a loaded backfield. On the bright side, West has worked ahead of Lorenzo Taliaferro all spring.
Jun 20 - 11:34 AM

Ravens re-signed RB Terrance West to a one-year contract.

He officially signed his exclusive-rights tender. West is reportedly down to 219 after shedding 15 pounds this offseason. He’ll return behind Justin Forsett/Buck Allen.
Apr 6 - 4:27 PM

Terrance West wants to play between 215-220 pounds in 2016.

West is already down to 219 after suiting up at 234 last season. "I’m quick on my feet regardless, but I think with me cutting a little bit of weight, I can move better, stuff like that, and stay on the field longer," West said. The No. 94 overall pick of the 2014 draft needs to try something, as he's the owner of an extremely disappointing 3.87 YPC through 233 career carries. West is firmly behind Justin Forsett and Buck Allen on the depth chart for the time being.
