Player Notes
Feb 27 3:30pm ET

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said that wide receiver Rashod Bateman is going to get the ball "a lot more" next season and said that he expects the wideout to take a big step forward in 2024. Odell Beckham Jr. may not return in free agency, which would help, but most fantasy managers will likely want to see it before believing Harbaugh's words. The 24-year-old disappeared more often than not in his third NFL season in 2023, finishing with just 32 receptions for 367 yards and one touchdown on 56 targets in 16 regular-season games. A lot more would have been expected of the former first-rounder had we known he was going to stay healthy all year. Unless Zay Flowers or tight end Mark Andrews miss time with injury in 2024, Bateman will have an uphill battle to climb again for consistent fantasy value.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said that wide receiver Rashod Bateman will be a starter in 2024 and will be playing a lot of snaps. Harbaugh said Bateman has become a "great, great route-runner. Rashod Bateman has a great future." The former first-rounder's numbers weren't very great in his third year in the NFL in 2023, as he caught just 32 passes for 367 yards and one touchdown on 56 targets in 16 regular-season games. Rookie first-rounder Zay Flowers became quarterback Lamar Jackson's top target once tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) went down with an injury in Week 11. But even before then, the 24-year-old Bateman had taken a back seat to Flowers and was even overshadowed by Odell Beckham Jr. and Nelson Agholor at times. Despite Harbaugh's words, Bateman has an uphill battle to climb for an expanded role as long as Flowers and Andrews stay healthy in 2024.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman found the end zone just one time all season, and that was in Week 11, which happened to be his only reception in that game. His best game in terms of targets and receptions was in Week 17, when the offense demolished the Miami Dolphins. He hauled in four of his six targets for 54 yards in that matchup. In Week 18, rookie Zay Flowers (calf) is doubtful and Odell Beckham Jr. is taking the week off. That means Bateman and Nelson Agholor come into the matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers as the top two receivers. They'll have quarterback Tyler Huntley throwing the ball instead of Lamar Jackson, but Bateman could receive enough targets to constitute a flex play.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman shed any injury designation after popping up on the injury report this week due to an illness. That doesn't automatically make him a starting option in any fantasy format, however. Bateman hasn't scored double-digit fantasy points in any game this season in any format. He has scored one touchdown this season and that was his only catch in that game. His game-high reception mark sits at three and his highest yardage total is just 36. Fantasy managers can find better value elsewhere this week as Bateman goes up against a solid Rams secondary.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman (illness) returned to a full practice on Thursday after he sat out with an illness on Wednesday. Coming off a bye, Bateman should now be good to go for the Week 14 contest versus the Los Angeles Rams. Even with tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) expected to miss the rest of the year, Bateman just hasn't done anything to show that he warrants much fantasy attention. The 24-year-old is clearly behind rookie first-rounder Zay Flowers in the pecking order in 2023, and he might be behind veteran Odell Beckham Jr. as well. Bateman has only one touchdown on the year, 22 receptions and 236 yards in 11 game. He doesn't have more than three receptions or 36 receiving yards in a single contest this season.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman missed Wednesday's practice with an illness. The wideout is likely to return to practice as soon as Thursday, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Assuming that statement from Harbaugh comes to pass, Bateman should be in no danger of missing a Week 14 clash against the Los Angeles Rams. If for some reason Bateman ends up not playing this weekend, it would provide more chances for Zay Flowers, Odell Beckham Jr., and even Nelson Agholor.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman has yet to secure a double-digit fantasy outing this season but over the last couple of weeks, he seems to be trending in the right direction. Bateman popped up on the injury report earlier this week with a foot issue but has since been removed from the report and looks to be a full go for the game against the Chargers. While there should be more targets to go around with Mark Andrews (ankle) out, Bateman isn't necessarily a lock to receive more work. He's a desperation flex play at best right now.

Baltimore Ravens wide receivers Rashod Bateman (foot) and Devin Duvernay (knee) upgraded to full participants in practice on Thursday. They had been limited on Wednesday. At this point, it's safe to say that both pass-catchers will play in Week 12 versus the Los Angeles Chargers, barring a setback. With that said, neither player has occupied a central role within the offense this season. They can be left on waivers in most fantasy leagues despite an enticing matchup.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman (foot) left practice early on Wednesday after falling down while running a route. The 23-year-old wideout was looking at his surgically repaired foot after he fell down so there was some concern. The team will see how Bateman feels on Thursday but he should be fine overall, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Bateman scored his first touchdown of the season last week but has put together a disappointing season overall. He has just 20 receptions (31 targets) for 215 yards and the lone score. With that said, the Ravens would love to have him out there for Week 12 against the Chargers to help mitigate the loss of dynamic tight end Mark Andrews (leg), who is now out for the year.

Dynasty | Rashod Bateman scored his first touchdown of 2023 in the Ravens victory over the Bengals in week 11 Dynasty Analysis: There's not much of a story here and the third-year dynasty bust had only one reception on two targets. The Ravens don't produce prolific receiver production outside of the tight end position and Bateman badly needs a career-reboot with a new team if dynasty coaches hope to ever see him reach his potential. Unfortunately, he'll likely return for his final contract season in 2024. He's listed as DLF's WR53.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman finally found the end zone during the 34-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. The Minnesota product finished with one catch for 10 yards and a touchdown on two targets which isn't exactly fantasy-friendly despite finding the end zone. Now that Mark Andrews (ankle) may be out for the season, there will be some more targets to spread around the offense, but Bateman is third fiddle at the very best. He may see some extra work against the Chargers in Week 12, but that still doesn't make him a starter except for very deep leagues.

Dynasty | Rashod Bateman produced 25 yards on 2-of-4 receiving during the Ravens loss to the Browns in week 10. Dynasty Analysis: Bateman has yet to produce more than three receptions in any single game and his high-water mark for yardage on the season stands at 36. He also has exactly zero touchdowns. The soon-to-be 24-year-old has been a bust and is showing no signs of improvement in his third year. To be fair, the Ravens don't have an offense that creates fantasy relevance from the receiver position so it's possible Bateman is simply a product of the system. 2024 stands to be his contract year as it's a certainty the team will not exercise his fifth-year option as a former first-round selection. He's listed as DLF's WR52 and is quickly becoming an afterthought in dynasty.

Baltimore Ravens wide receivers Rashod Bateman (back) and Odell Beckham Jr. (rest, knee) have been removed from the injury report and do not carry a designation into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. Bateman's role has fluctuated this season, but he played 57 percent of snaps in Week 9 while managing to command a season-high five targets. Meanwhile, Beckham has struggled to stay on the field but flashed talent when healthy. Just last week, he caught five passes for 56 yards and one touchdown. Both receivers have respectable roles in the Baltimore offense, but it's far more difficult to trust them than it is to trust someone like Zay Flowers, Gus Edwards, or Mark Andrews. For the time being, Bateman and Beckham don't belong in fantasy lineups.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman (back) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice session. The young wideout was a late addition to the injury report as he appears to be dealing with a back issue. Possibly, the Ravens limited him in order to manage his reps. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too worried about Bateman sitting out in Week 10. He hasn't been much of a factor in the offense lately. At this point, fantasy managers shouldn't consider Bateman anything more than a WR4, assuming he suits up for this game against the Cleveland Browns.
