WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Rashod Bateman | Ravens WR

Rashod Bateman (groin) is officially active for Week 9.

A groin issue popped up again for Bateman, but the rookie receiver is OK to play against the Vikings. Still, it’s a little more difficult to trust Bateman in fantasy lineups with this minor ailment he’s now dealing with.

The Ravens have activated Rashod Bateman from injured reserve.

Baltimore’s first-round pick will make his debut tomorrow, and he could have a sizable role with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) out. Based on how much the Ravens have thrown this year, Bateman is worth an add in all leagues.

The Ravens have activated Rashod Bateman from injured reserve.

Bateman started his rookie campaign on IR, but he's worth considering as an intriguing flier—though Marquise Brown and Sammy Watkins are healthy and should remain the top two wideouts on a run-heavy offense. The first-round pick out of Minnesota might be a better dynasty prospect, but we are high on the talent.

Rashod Bateman has been placed on injured reserve.

Bateman will miss the first three games of the season, which means he won’t return in September. That said, IR is better than the PUP list, and Baltimore’s first-round pick is still worth late-round consideration as a stash in redraft leagues.

Rashod Bateman is having groin surgery.

The rookie receiver is having surgery either today or tomorrow, and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh says he'll be back some time in September and terms it "pretty good news." This falls in line with what it sounded like would be the timeline yesterday. It's unfortunate that the first-round pick likely won't be ready for opening day, but he can give the Baltimore passing attack a boost when he makes his debut during the first week of the season.

Rashod Bateman will miss "a number of weeks" with a leg injury.

It was thought to be a groin injury that Bateman was dealing with, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh says it's a leg issue that will keep him out for a stretch of weeks, but not months. Hopefully the first-round rookie receiver is able to make his debut sometime during September, but we might not get a clear timeline until closer to the start of the regular season.

Rashod Bateman (groin) is at least week-to-week.

Bateman went down in practice this morning with what is being called a groin/core muscle injury, and he looked to be in obvious discomfort while heading off the field. The rookie receiver is now set to miss most if not all of the preseason, and his Week 1 appears to be in jeopardy. Bateman has been impressing when he's been on the field in camp, but he might now start the season on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Rashod Bateman | Ravens WR

The Ravens have selected Minnesota wide receiver Rashod Bateman with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

A possession receiver that can play outside or in the slot, Bateman has a somewhat strange pre-draft process with smaller-than-expected measurements (six-foot, 190 pounds) and a faster-than-expected 40 time (4.39). But looking at the tape, Bateman won with strength and craftiness (a comparison for him is Michael Thomas), which we think he will be able to bring to Baltimore. Ideally, the offense will end up funneling targets to Bateman early in his career to maximize his fantasy value, but it might be asking too much alongside Sammy Watkins and Marquise Brown (as well as Mark Andrews at tight end) in a run-heavy offense. The full scouting report for Bateman can be viewed in the link below.
