- Updated: Tuesday, July 11th


In addition to viewing our 2017 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you find our 2017 fantasy football projections for the Baltimore Ravens:

Quarterbacks

PlayerComp.Att.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Joe Flacco427.9668456325.515.127.7821.6272.12
Only Drew Brees (673) threw more pass attempts than Flacco (672) last season, but the Ravens actually led the NFL in pass attempts in 2016. That said, Flacco was incredibly inefficient as he set or tied career lows in both Y/A (6.4) and TD% (3.0) in 2016. It should help that he's another year removed from his torn ACL and the addition of Jeremy Maclin helps to fill the void left by Steve Smith's retirement.

Running Backs

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Danny Woodhead96.3409.93.766.7567.94.5146.98
Missing the majority of the 2014 and 2016 seasons, Woodhead has played just 21 games over the past three years. That said, he has more than 75 receptions in each of his previous two full seasons and he should easily lead the Ravens backfield in receptions in 2017. And even though Woodhead is more valuable in PPR formats, he has finished as a top-24 fantasy running back (standard scoring) in each of his past three full seasons.
Terrance West135.2550.56.116.2116.20103.27
With Dixon suspended for four games, West heads into the season as the early-down starter. Depending on how well he plays during that stretch, the more likely that he maintains that role once Dixon's suspension ends.
Kenneth Dixon117.3504.13.618.51360.588.61
Missing four games as a rookie (knee), Dixon will miss four games to start his second season (PED suspension). While I expect Dixon to lead the backfield in touches from Weeks 5 to 17, his suspension and the addition of Woodhead limits his upside for a true breakout in 2017.

Wide Receivers

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Jeremy Maclin86.81119.66.7000152.16
Last season was a year to forget for Maclin (and his fantasy owners). Before last season, however, Maclin had 85-plus catches and 1,000-plus yards in each of his previous two seasons. Given the departure of targets from last year's squad, Maclin could bounce back in a big way with good health.
Mike Wallace72.3986.64.93.824.20130.48
Fantasy owners don't get excited when they draft 60 Minutes, but perhaps they should. Even though Wallace had his first 1,000-yard season since 2011, he has finished as a top-30 fantasy wide receiver (standard scoring) in seven of eight seasons since entering the league in 2009.
Breshad Perriman50719.94.600099.59
Entering the NFL with a freakish combination of size and speed, Perriman missed his rookie season due to injury and finished with just 33 catches for 499 yards and three touchdowns last year. If it weren't for the addition of Maclin in free agency, Perriman would be poised for a breakout for a team that led the NFL in pass attempts last year. Even so, he should post better numbers in 2017 than he had last season.
