Ravens LG Alex Lewis (ankle) is doubtful for Week 14.

Lewis returned to practice this week but was never expected to play. He's on track for a Week 15 return.
Dec 10 - 4:21 PM

Ravens LG Alex Lewis (ankle) is practicing again Saturday.

Lewis was limited Friday and likely will be again Saturday, but the two practices confirm he is well ahead of the initial six-week timetable. Lewis still seems unlikely to play Monday night, but he could be back Week 15.
Dec 10 - 11:59 AM

Ravens LG Alex Lewis (ankle) got in some work in Friday's practice.

Lewis is still highly unlikely to play this week, but it is a quick return for a player who was given a six-week timetable in mid-November. Coach John Harbaugh said Monday Lewis was still a "ways away," but it seems like he could have a shot to return next week. Marshal Yanda made the switch to left guard with Lewis out with Vladimir Ducasse filling in on the right side.

Mike Wallace notched six catches for 59 yards on seven targets Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Another status quo week for Wallace, who has logged between 57 and 62 yards in each of his last four games. At least the man is consistent. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Wallace hasn’t found the end zone during that span. He’s scored in three straight games against the Patriots, so something will have to give next week when the Ravens travel to Foxboro for Monday Night Football.
Dec 4 - 5:41 PM

Steve Smith Sr. absorbed six-of-10 targets for 53 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Somehow on a day when Joe Flacco threw for a season-high 381 yards, his best receiver managed just 53. Smith Sr. was still plenty involved, finishing second on the team in targets behind tight end Dennis Pitta. Four of Smith Sr.’s six grabs came before halftime including a 23-yarder on the Ravens’ opening drive. That would end up being his longest gain of the afternoon. Smith Sr. can be employed as a WR3 next week against New England.
Dec 4 - 5:26 PM

Kenneth Dixon covered 56 yards on six carries and reeled in four catches for 21 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Dixon looked explosive, averaging a robust 9.3 yards per carry. Unfortunately the Ravens threw 50 passes on Sunday, which left him with little to do. Terrance West out-touched Dixon 13-10 and scored a pair of touchdowns. We’re guessing the backfield distribution will be close to a 50/50 split next week against New England.
Dec 4 - 5:25 PM

Breshad Perriman delivered two catches for 59 yards and a touchdown on three targets Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Perriman broke loose for a 53-yard touchdown on a check-down pass from Joe Flacco early in the fourth quarter. That was his only notable contribution. After going his first eight games without a touchdown, Perriman has now found the end zone three times in his last four contests. It’s a good sign, but obviously not enough for us to consider Perriman as a realistic fantasy option.
Dec 4 - 5:23 PM

Joe Flacco completed 36-of-47 passes for 381 yards with four touchdowns and one interception Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Flacco was surgical on Sunday. He got off to a magnificent start by completing six-of-seven passes to six different receivers on the Ravens’ opening drive. Flacco had his most success throwing to Dennis Pitta, who shredded Miami for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Flacco’s obligatory bad interception came on a play-action pass intended for Mike Wallace. It was a poor decision by Flacco but Wallace gave up on his route, which allowed Byron Maxwell to swoop in for an easy pick. Aside from that, Flacco could do no wrong. He flourished when the Ravens went no-huddle and attacked the middle of the field. Sunday represented his highest yardage output since Week 2 of last season. Flacco will be an option in two-quarterback leagues next week against New England.
Dec 4 - 4:49 PM

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.
Dec 4 - 4:45 PM

Dennis Pitta snagged nine-of-11 targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Pitta ended a 17-game touchdown drought on Sunday and he did it with style. Baltimore made a point to attack the middle of the field, which, coincidentally, is where Pitta makes his living. His first touchdown came on a 13-yard pass Joe Flacco managed to squeeze between Isa Abdul-Quddus and Bacarri Rambo. He went for six again late in the first half, this time beating Rambo in zone coverage for a nine-yard score. Pitta did lose a fumble in the fourth quarter but the Ravens were way ahead at that point. His nine catches matched a season-high and the 90 yards he tallied were his most since Week 2. Pitta will be a TE2 consideration next week against New England.
Dec 4 - 4:44 PM

Ravens declared RB Buck Allen, LB Kamalei Correa, TE Crockett Gillmore, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, OL Ryan Jensen, G Alex Lewis and RB Lorenzo Taliaferro inactive for Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Allen missed the last two practices this week while dealing with a personal matter. Kamar Aiken (thigh) and Jimmy Smith (back) are both active for Baltimore.
Dec 4 - 11:37 AM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed Jimmy Smith (questionable, back) should return for Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Smith missed the last two weeks with a back injury but practiced fully and should be all set for Sunday's matchup against Miami. He's been Baltimore's best cover corner this year. It's a big boost to the Ravens' secondary.
Dec 2 - 1:18 PM

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (back) is practicing fully in preparation for Week 13.

Smith missed Baltimore's last two games with a back injury, and the Ravens failed to record an interception while allowing 280 passing yards per game in his absence. The Ravens D/ST has pumped out double-digit fantasy points in four of their last five games and will be a solid starting option at home against Miami in Week 13.
Dec 1 - 12:35 PM

Updating an earlier report, Jimmy Smith (back) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

He should return this week after sitting out the last two games with a back injury. Smith is the Ravens' best cover corner and is usually asked to defend the other team's top wideout. Because Jarvis Landry plays in the slot, Smith will likely draw DeVante Parker in coverage Sunday against Miami.
Nov 30 - 4:52 PM

Jimmy Smith (back) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

Smith has missed the past two games, but this puts him on track to return for Week 13 against the Dolphins. Smith would likely see a lot of DeVante Parker.
