|Kenneth Dixon likely to see more work -- Mon Oct 24 6:10 pm --|
Rookie limited to 16 yards on nine touches in first three games
|Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he would like to see rookie RB Kenneth Dixon play more. He's had limited carries since coming back from sprained knee. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Dixon saw three and two carries, respectively, over Weeks 5 and 6 before getting one Sunday, so it is anyone's guess as to how much of a bump Harbaugh is expecting. Despite an eight-carry, 10-yard effort from Terrance West in Week 7, he hasn't really given the Ravens much reason to diminish his workload. Still, don't be surprised if Baltimore moves forward with something approaching a 60/40 split with Dixon on the lesser end of the equation.
|Ravens release RB Justin Forsett -- Tue Oct 4 1:00 pm --|
Kenneth Dixon set to make his debut Week 5
|Two days after deactivating Justin Forsett and one day after coach John Harbaugh was non-committal about Forsett’s future, the Ravens parted ways with the veteran running back. The organization informed Forsett of his release on Tuesday. (Baltimore Sun)|
FF Today's Take: Forsett was released prior to Week 1 in a move to the help the team with the salary cap. This time it's permanent. With Forsett out, Terrance West and rookie Kenneth Dixon are the frontrunners to be fantasy relevant with Javorius Allen filling a change of pace role.
|Ravens won't commit to Terrance West -- Mon Oct 3 6:00 pm --|
Baltimore backfield in flux
|Ravens coach John Harbaugh wouldn't commit to Terrance West as the featured back going forward. "If you're playing hard, smart and is fundamentally sound and is productive, you'll be out there again," Harbaugh said. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: West gave the Ravens 113 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries against the Raiders in Week 4, so it is fair to say he'll get a shot to further solidify his hold on the job against the Redskins in Week 5, when rookie Kenneth Dixon is expected to make his NFL debut. Expect West to handle the early-down work for now, while Dixon takes over the passing-down duties as early as this week. West is now on the flex radar and Dixon needs to be added in all leagues.
| Terrance West to start for Ravens -- Sun Oct 2 8:15 am --|

FF Today's Take: The Ravens run game has been dismal over the first three weeks. West is worth of Flex consideration against the Raiders. There's a chance Javorius Allen could be active for the first time this season.
