|It will certainly take a few things to work in his favor, like the Ravens becoming a top 5 passing team, or injuries taking out Bateman and OBJ, but there is a world where Zay Flowers becomes a fantasy steal. With multiverses being so popular at the box office lately, imagine a scenario where Flowers is thrust into an every-down role because of nagging injuries to the starters. He's uncoverable in the slot, looks like his role model Steve Smith Sr., and Jackson has evolved as passer. He uses his slippery wiggle to make plays after the catch and becomes a reliable weekly WR3.
Unfortunately, there is an equally possible scenario where the receivers stay healthy, or the passing game struggles to gel and Flowers is deployed sparingly as he develops as a young player (much like Steve Smith Jr.). If you've noticed a boom/bust sort of theme to this Ravens outlook you aren't wrong. Draft them in the right spot and they could contribute to a championship run. Overdraft, or rely too heavily on any one guy, and disaster could loom. Either way, I think Flowers is a year away from being a bigger part of offense, but don't be afraid to make him a priority waiver add.

Ravens with three healthy WRs

|With Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashod Bateman ruled out, here are the #Ravens' WRs on 53-man roster:

FFToday's Take: The Ravens will be short-handed at receiver this week which may be just fine if they lean on the running game against the Browns. Agholor is likely the biggest beneficiary of the Beckham and Bateman absences. He's likely to play in two-wide receiver sets with Flowers.
