Steve Smith Sr. reeled in eight-of-11 targets for 87 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

He got his day off to a good start by leaping a defender as part of a 23-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter. The real damage came after halftime when Smith went off for 55 yards on six receptions with two of those grabs coming on Baltimore’s game-winning drive. Smith tallied more yards Sunday than he did in his previous two games. Despite ending last year with a brutal Achilles injury, the 37-year-old looks like he still has plenty left in the tank. Smith Sr. will be in the WR3/4 mix next week against Oakland.

Breshad Perriman absorbed two-of-four targets for 22 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

Perriman hauled in an absolute rocket from Joe Flacco for a 15-yard gain in the second quarter but that was his only real highlight. Both of the passes he missed were catchable with Perriman dropping one of them. It’s good that Perriman is finally healthy after missing his whole rookie season but he’s not ready to be a fantasy contributor yet. He gets the Raiders in Week 4.

Mike Wallace collected three catches for 34 yards on six targets Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

He only caught one ball for seven yards in the second half as Joe Flacco went to his safety valve, Steve Smith Sr. Wallace had a touchdown in his grasp but couldn’t come down with it early in the third quarter. That ended Flacco’s streak of 21 completions in a row. We knew Wallace would cool off after erupting for three touchdowns in his first two contests. Wallace is still a terrific playmaker and one of the game’s fastest downfield receivers but he’s always been boom-or-bust when it comes to fantasy. He’ll be a WR3 next time out against Oakland.
Sep 25 - 5:55 PM

Dennis Pitta turned eight targets into six catches for 42 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

Pitta got off to a hot start with six catches in the first half but couldn’t haul in either of his second-half targets. He’s settled in nicely as Joe Flacco’s primary check-down man with 20 targets over the last two weeks. The 31-year-old hasn’t scored a touchdown yet but fantasy owners have to be pleased with his involvement so far. Pencil him in as an upside TE2 next time out against Oakland.
Sep 25 - 5:53 PM

Joe Flacco completed 29-of-40 passes for 214 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed three times for 12 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

Flacco set a Ravens’ record by completing 21 passes in a row in this game, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at his dreadful stat line. He tried his absolute hardest to give this game away with two fourth-quarter interceptions. The first came on a miscommunication with Dennis Pitta. The pass was deflected by Jalen Ramsey and eventually intercepted by Tashaun Gipson. Paul Posluszny came down with the second pick on a pass that was intended for Justin Forsett. Flacco, who is not known for his mobility, actually broke off a couple nice runs on Sunday including a seven-yard touchdown in the second quarter. This wasn’t a masterpiece by any stretch but Flacco did just enough to put Baltimore in the winner’s circle. He has a nice matchup waiting against the Raiders in Week 4.

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

Justin Forsett totaled 20 yards on seven carries and reeled in six-of-seven targets for 12 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

He drew the start and out-touched Terrance West 13-12, though West saw more carries. Forsett didn’t get much traction on Sunday, particularly in the first half when he was stuffed for only four yards on three carries. Right now the Ravens are just biding their time until fourth-round rookie Kenneth Dixon returns from a knee injury. Forsett won’t be much more than a flex consideration next week against Oakland.
Sep 25 - 5:45 PM

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot) is inactive for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Dumervil returned to practice this week but isn't game-ready yet. Look for him to return against the Raiders in Week 4. Albert McClellan will draw another start at left outside linebacker.
Sep 25 - 11:49 AM

Ravens declared RB Buck Allen, CB Will Davis, RB Kenneth Dixon, OLB Elvis Dumervil, DT Willie Henry, CB Jerraud Powers and G/C John Urschel inactive for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Allen has been a healthy scratch for all three games this season. Justin Forsett and Terrance West will continue to split up the rushing workload. Neither are appealing fantasy options. Ronnie Stanley (foot) is active for Week 3.
Sep 25 - 11:37 AM

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot) is questionable for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Dumervil was limited at practice all week but should make his season debut Sunday at Jacksonville. His return will send Albert McClellan back to the bench.
Sep 23 - 2:20 PM

Kenneth Dixon (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Dixon is believed to be targeting Week 4 to make his first NFL appearance, although he didn't practice this week and isn't known to be making any headway in his recovery. Dixon remains worth holding onto in 14-team leagues, and some deeper 12-team ones. He looked like the Ravens' best back in preseason games.
Sep 23 - 2:16 PM

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot) expects to play this week.

"At this point, it's heading in the right direction," he said. Dumervil returned to a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out nearly a month, but he expects to be ready for this weekend. If he is active, he will likely be limited.

Joe Flacco said he wants to "keep feeding" Mike Wallace targets.

"I know he's very confident, and we want to keep him that way," Flacco said. "The more and more he continues to feel like that is going to be better for our team." Wallace is third on the team with 12 targets, but he has scored all three of the Ravens' offensive touchdowns. With the Jaguars and Raiders next up on the schedule, Wallace should be starting on most teams the next two weeks.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

That puts him on track to play Sunday against Jacksonville. Dumervil hadn't practiced since August 22 after suffering a setback in his recovery from offseason foot surgery. Albert McClellan has been starting in his place.
Sep 21 - 4:31 PM

Justin Forsett played 41-of-75 snaps Week 2 against the Browns.

He almost doubled the playing time of Terrance West, who played just 21 snaps. Neither back put up big fantasy numbers even in a good matchup. Both are FLEX plays at best heading into a matchup with the Jaguars.
