Alex Collins rushed ten times for 30 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

Collins still isn't used at all in the passing game, where Buck Allen dominated work again with eight catches on a team-high 11 targets on Sunday. Collins also isn't scoring touchdowns. Even though he is theoretically the Ravens' lead back, Collins is a mere low-end, low-floor flex option from week to week.

Ravens WR Chris Moore caught 2-of-8 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

He caught Joe Flacco's lone touchdown pass of the game after leading the Ravens in Week 6 receiving yards, albeit with only 44. Breshad Perriman (concussion), Mike Wallace (concussion), and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) are all banged up, so Moore's opportunities have increased. If those three stay out in Week 8 against the Dolphins, Moore will be worth a look as a deep-league WR4/flex.
Oct 22 - 5:14 PM

Ben Watson caught 5-of-5 targets for 38 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

With Baltimore's wideout corps all kinds of beat up, Watson led the team in receiving yards as Joe Flacco threw for just 186. Watson has been a low-upside, PPR-specific streamer option throughout the year. He will remain that in Week 8 against the Dolphins' leaky tight end coverage.
Oct 22 - 5:10 PM

Buck Allen rushed six times for 20 yards and caught 8-of-11 targets for 29 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

No member of the Ravens' offense got anything going all game, but Allen's high-volume receiving usage continues to make him as a weekly PPR factor. Albeit without much upside, Allen will remain a viable PPR flex option against the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 5:03 PM

Joe Flacco completed 27-of-39 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Vikings.

He took five sacks and fumbled three times, although all three were recovered by the Ravens. The good news is Flacco ultimately avoided turnovers. The bad news is he averaged under five yards per pass attempt, and the Ravens' passing game has continued to struggle mightily all year. Even against a pass-funnel Dolphins defense, Flacco will be tough to trust outside of two-quarterback leagues on Thursday Night Football in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 5:01 PM

Mike Wallace (concussion) has been ruled out for the rest of Week 7.

He finished with one catch for nine yards. Wallace tried pleading his case with Ravens coaches and medical staff to be allowed to return, but they did not relent. The Ravens are devastatingly short handed at wide receiver.
Oct 22 - 1:42 PM

Mike Wallace left Sunday's Week 7 game to be evaluated for a concussion.

He entered the game nursing a back injury. Wallace took a big hit on Baltimore's opening drive and immediately went to the locker room. The Ravens are already without Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder).
Oct 22 - 1:14 PM

Ben Watson (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Vikings.

He was listed as questionable, but Watson was always expected to play. He could see more usage than usual this week due to Baltimore's wide receiver injuries.
Oct 22 - 11:53 AM

Ravens DT Brandon Williams is active for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Williams is a difference-making run defender on the inside, so this is a blow to Vikings interior runner Latavius Murray's outlook. If the Vikings are smart, they will use Jerick McKinnon even more than usual this week, looking to attack the edges of Baltimore's defense as opposed to the interior.
Oct 22 - 11:52 AM

Mike Wallace (back) is active for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Unfortunately, multiple beat writers noted Wallace looked stiff and uncomfortable in warmups. He's a legitimate goose-egg candidate at less than 100 percent facing off with Xavier Rhodes. The Ravens' inactives are WR Jeremy Maclin, TE Maxx Williams, WR Chris Matthews, RG Matt Skura, RB Terrance West, and LB Tim Williams.
Oct 22 - 11:49 AM

Updating an earlier report, Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) is out for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Maclin was originally expected to play but had a setback during pregame warmups. This will be his second straight absence. With Breshad Perriman (concussion) also out, Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro will work as the Ravens' lead wideouts on Sunday.
Oct 22 - 11:01 AM

Ben Watson (questionable, knee) is expected to play Week 7 against the Vikings.

Watson seems to show up on the injury report every week but has yet to miss a game this season. That theme will continue Sunday at Minnesota. Watson had some streaming appeal early in the year but has quickly faded into the abyss. You can probably find a better tight end on the waiver wire.
Oct 22 - 9:00 AM

Mike Wallace (questionable, back) is expected to play Week 7 against the Vikings.

Wallace looked to be in trouble after sitting out Thursday's practice but was able to gain clearance after getting in a limited session on Friday. Baltimore's passing offense has been dismal this year and Wallace hasn't done much to move the needle. He's topped 60 yards in just one of six games this season. Likely to square off with Xavier Rhodes, Wallace won't be an appealing fantasy option at Minnesota.
Oct 22 - 8:59 AM

Jeremy Maclin (questionable, shoulder) is expected to play Week 7 against the Vikings.

The Ravens are also expected to have Mike Wallace (back) and Ben Watson (knee). Maclin got in a limited week of practice after sitting out against the Bears in Week 6. Despite his name recognition, Maclin has averaged just 24 yards during his three-game touchdown drought and should be avoided against a stout Vikings secondary.
Oct 22 - 8:59 AM

Ravens TE Maxx Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7.

He didn't practice all week. With Williams sidelined and Baltimore's top-two receivers less than 100 percent, Ben Watson (questionable, knee) should see an expanded role.
