WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

The Packers signed Ryan Grant.

This might be a bit confusing on first glance because the Packers had former running back Ryan Grant from 2007-2012 (a two-time 1,200-yard rusher for them), but Green Bay is signing the free agent receiver that played four years for Washington, last season for Indianapolis, and the early part of this season in Oakland. Grant has a chance to immediately carve out a role with the Packers, but he's not a recommended fantasy pickup at the moment.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

The Raiders have released Ryan Grant.

Grant was inactive last week, and the team is now releasing him to make room for linebacker Justin Phillips with injuries hitting the defense. Oakland is still pretty thin at receiver, but this could mean the recently acquired Trevor Davis will have an offensive role, or Grant may even be brought back in the near future.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant is inactive for the Raiders.

The Raiders are going with just four active wide receivers today. Grant should not be owned outside of very deep draft leagues.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

The Raiders signed Ryan Grant.

Grant, who spent last year with the Colts after spending his first four NFL seasons with the Redskins, is a familiar player for Jon Gruden, as the former fifth-round receiver played for Jay Gruden in Washington. Oakland has added Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams, J.J. Nelson, and Ryan Grant to go along with 2018 seventh-round pick Marcell Atman in a totally revamped receiving corps, so the team is less likely to worry about targeting a receiver in this month's draft if players go flying off the board at the position. As things stand, Grant will likely be the team's primary No. 3 receiver, which could lead to some FLEX consideration in deeper leagues, but we'll see how the draft goes.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant (toe) has officially been ruled out for the Divisional Round.

Grant didn't practice all week for the Colts and remains week-to-week with his toe injury. Indianapolis will rely on Dontrelle Inman, Chester Rogers, and Zach Pascal stepping up around T.Y. Hilton in the receiving corps, as they have been, when they face Kansas City this Saturday.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant (toe) has been ruled out for Saturday's playoff game.

Grant didn't practice all week and was said to be not ready to face the Texans in the Wild Card Round, and the Colts have officially ruled him out. Hopefully Grant can make a push to play in the Divisional Round if the Colts advance.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches one pass against the Titans.

Grant gained four yards on his lone Week 17 reception, brining his 2018 regular season total to 35 receptions for 334 yards and one touchdown in 14 games. Now Grant will play in the postseason in his first year with Indy.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches one pass in win over the Colts.

It went for five yards. Grant has had his moments this year, but fantasy owners can look elsewhere for Week 17.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches two passes against the Cowboys.

Granted gained 16 yards on his two Week 15 receptions. Grant is more of a solid real-life contributor than he is a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches 15-yards pass in win over the Texans.

It was his only reception of the game. Grant isn't a recommended fantasy option heading into next week's matchup against the Cowboys.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant held to one reception in Week 12 win.

It went for three yards on his only target. Grant isn't a recommended on a spread-the-wealth offense, but he will look to make an impact next Sunday against the Jaguars.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches two passes in Week 11.

Grant gained 15 yards on his two receptions versus the Titans. Grant isn't getting enough looks to be a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches one pass in Week 10.

Grant gained six yards in his return to the lineup after missing two games with an ankle injury. Dontrelle Inman appears to be the preferred No. 2 wide receiver option for the Colts right now, so Grant doesn't need to be on fantasy rosters.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant (ankle) was limited in today's practice.

This was Grant's first practice since his Week 6 ankle injury, so he's headed in the right direction and appears to have a good chance of returning as the Colts come off their bye week. Grant isn't a recommended fantasy option right now, but if he can return it'll be a boost for Indy's offense.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant (ankle) is out for Week 8.

This is Grant's second straight missed game, and he doesn't need to be kept on fantasy rosters right now. Hopefully he's able to get back on the field soon, though.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant (ankle) is out for Week 7.

Grant didn't practice all week, so this was expected. This snaps a 69-game streak of consecutive games played, which currently ranks fourth among active receivers. T.Y. Hilton (hamstring/chest) is expected to return this week, so Grant's absence doesn't have big fantasy implications.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches two passes in Week 6.

Grant gained 24 yards on his two receptions (five targets) against the Jets. He also had a pass go off his hands and get intercepted by the Jets on a turnover-filled day for the Colts. Grant will look to bounce back with a big game next week against the Bills.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches six passes against the Patriots.

Grant was targeted nine times in the Thursday night loss, gaining 58 yards on his six receptions. The former Redskin continues to work as a starting receiver for Indy, but there are probably better, higher upside options for your fantasy lineup at the moment.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches five passes against the Texans.

Grant gained 64 yards on his five receptions in the Week 4 overtime loss. If T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) misses time, Grant might become the top wide receiver for Andrew Luck, which could carry some FLEX appeal. Through four games, Grant is on pace for 72 receptions, 752 yards, and four touchdowns.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant scores in Colts' loss.

Grant was targeted five times, catching three passes for 35 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles. The touchdown was a five-yarder in which Grant made a great catch in the corner of the end zone on a fade. Grant will have productive weeks as Indy's No. 2 receiver, but he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches both targets in Week 2.

Grant gained 30 yards on his two receptions, with gains of 21 yards and nine yards against his former team. Grant is more of a real-life contributor than a fantasy contributor at the moment.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant impresses in Colts debut.

Grant caught a team-high eight passes for 59 yards as a tough, reliable target for Andrew Luck underneath. It's worth noting that the Colts aired it out 53 times, but Grant looks like he could be a solid PPR option this season because he has Luck's trust on a team that doesn't have an established wideout behind T.Y. Hilton. The former Redskin will take on his former team next Sunday.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant has separated himself as the Colts' No. 2 receiver.

Over the weekend, Colts head coach Frank Rreich said "T.Y. (Hilton) and Ryan Grant have really separated themselves" at the position. Then Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni followed it up by saying that Grant "does what we ask guys to do on a consistent basis, and that's just improve every single day," while also talking about how Grant does the little things correctly like getting the correct release, running the route correctly, and springing a big run with a block. Last season, Grant had 45 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns with the Redskins, and he was an obvious favorite of Redskins head coach Jay Gruden. Things can change, but it looks like Grant will be the starter opposite Hilton, which would mean he has some late-round fantasy appeal with Andrew Luck throwing him passes.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant is signing with the Colts, according to James Jones.

The former NFL receiver James Jones is breaking some news this offseason, and he says Grant was deciding between the Colts and Raiders, opting to sign with Indianapolis. With Donte Moncrief gone, Grant will have a chance to emerge as the team's number two receiver behind T.Y. Hilton, which could lead to solid fantasy value. Unless the Colts add anyone else in free agency or the draft, Grant might compete with Chester Rogers for the number two role. It's reportedly a one-year deal for Grant, which will let him try to play well and earn a bigger contract next offseason. It's good to see him land in a nice spot after the Ravens failed him on his physical and voided his four-year deal with them.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant's contract with the Ravens is void, according to Adam Schefter.

After NFL Network's Ian Rapoport just reported that the Ravens had concerns about Grant's physical and made it sound like the deal was ready to fall apart, it appears it did indeed fall apart. Grant will unfortunately have to look for a new team after he had a really nice $29 million deal from Baltimore. Meanwhile, the Ravens are set to turn their attention to former Raiders receiver Michael Crabtree, who has torched the Ravens in their matchups over the last three seasons, so it's not a surprise they'll go after him.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant has yet to sign his deal with the Ravens.

Baltimore announced they agreed to the contract yesterday, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says a something popped up during Grant's physical that makes them concerned about the amount of guaranteed money they gave to him in the deal. We would think something gets worked out, but there's a chance the agreed-upon deal falls apart and the two sides go their separate ways. As more information becomes available, we will update you.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

The Ravens announced they agreed to sign wide receiver Ryan Grant.

Since the new league year has started, Grant can now sign his deal with the Ravens. After the release of veteran receiver Jeremy Maclin earlier today, Grant looks like a clear top-three option in Baltimore's receiving corps with John Brown and Breshad Perriman. Grant isn't a recommended 2018 fantasy selection just yet, but he's someone to keep an eye on.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

The Ravens are expected to sign wide receiver Ryan Grant, according to Ian Rapoport.

The 2014 fifth-round pick of the Redskins had a big of a breakout season with Washington last year, catching 45 passes for 573 yards and four touchdowns, and he's cashing in with a very nice payday of four years, $29 million, according to Rapoport. Redskins head coach seemed to really love Grant's reliability at receiver, and it's not surprising that the Ravens appear to covet it. Depending on the status of Jeremy Maclin and Breshard Perriman, it's possible Grant is a top-two receiver with John Brown for the Ravens in 2018. The signing cannot become official until the start of the new league year tomorrow at 4:00 PM ET.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant caught two passes for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

The Redskins didn't have the season they wanted, but injuries and inconsistency at the wide receiver position gave Grant an opportunity for extended playing time, and he stepped up with career-highs across the board with 45 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns. He won't be a fantasy option in 2018.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant leads team in receiving as Redskins improve to 7-8.

Grant caught four passes for 85 yards in the 27-11 victory. He's a trusted receiver for Kirk Cousins, but Grant won't be a reliable fantasy option in Week 17.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant caught two passes for 20 yards in Sunday's win over Arizona.

Grant is a better real-life target for Kirk Cousins than he is a fantasy option. You can ignore him for the fantasy championship.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches 28-yard pass in loss to the Chargers.

It was Grant's only reception of the game. He isn't a fantasy option for the 5-8 Redskins.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant scores in Week 13.

Grant was targeted a team-high eight times against the Cowboys, and he caught five passes for a team-high 76 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a play where he beat the Cover 2 zone and got between the corner and safety for a 24-yarder on a catch at the front pylon. Grant is a reliable player for Kirk Cousins and the offense, but he's not a recommended fantasy option, despite his contributions to the team in real life.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches one pass in Week 12.

Grant gained only three yards on his lone reception. While he's a consistent player for the Redskins, he doesn't get enough volume on offense to be a reliable fantasy option.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant scores in Week 11.

Grant caught all three targets for 59 yards and a touchdown against the Saints, with the score coming on a deep corner route where he was wide open for 40 yards. He's not a recommended fantasy option in Week 12 against the Giants.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant is out for the game with a concussion.

Grant took a huge hit over the middle from 329-pound Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph, and he's been declared out with a concussion. Before leaving the game, Grant was working as a reliable target for Kirk Cousins, catching three passes for 25 yards.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches all three targets in Week 9.

Grant gained 39 yards on his three receptions, including a long of 23 yards. He continues to be among the most consistent targets for the Redskins, so his playing time should remain steady in a volatile receiving group. Grant is on pace for 48 receptions, 508 yards, and four touchdowns this season.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant caught five passes for 38 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

At this point, it looks like Grant is the third best skill-position player on Washington's offense, as Jordan Reed can't stay healthy, Josh Doctson hasn't been consistent, and Terrelle Pryor doesn't even see the field anymore. That said, Grant is a better real-life option for Kirk Cousins than he is fantasy option.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches all three targets in Week 7.

Grant gained 19 yards on his three receptions against the Eagles. He's a solid contributor for the Redskins, but Grant is not on the fantasy radar right now.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant gets five targets in Week 6.

Grant caught three passes for 39 yards against the 49ers. He's an obvious contributor to the Redskins, but Grant is difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant scores against the Chiefs.

Grant had two catches for 16 yards, including a three-yard touchdown on an in-breaking route in the end zone against Marcus Peters. He's a contributor to the Redskins, but he's not a reliable fantasy option right now.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant gets four targets in Week 3.

Grant caught three of the targets for 31 yards against Oakland. He's not a fantasy option, despite his contributions to the Redskins.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant catches game-winning touchdown in Week 2 win over the Rams.

It went for 11 yards, and it was his only catch of the day. Grant is a favorite of Jay Gruden and the coaching staff, so he will continue to get chances to make plays for them. If Terrelle Pryor continues to struggle and Josh Doctson can't get fully healthy, Grant might find his way into two-WR sets. That said, he won't be a fantasy option in Week 3.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Ryan Grant gets six targets in Week 1.

Grant appeared to work as a clear top three wide receiver for Washington, catching four passes for 61 yards against the Eagles. Grant is a clear favorite of head coach Jay Gruden, but he shouldn't be in your fantasy lineup as at best the fourth option for Kirk Cousins.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Grant catches 17-yard catch in preseason opener.

The 26-year-old is battling with Brian Quick and a couple younger guys for snaps behind Jamison Crowder, Terrelle Pryor, and Josh Doctson. The Redskins play the Packers in next week's preseason game, and Grant will hope to make some plays against a weak secondary.

Ryan Grant | Packers WR

Jay Gruden says Ryan Grant has been the Redskins' "most consistent guy, without a doubt."

The Redskins head coach said Grant is the most consistent in terms of "as a far as being able to lineup everywhere, run the routes exactly how we want them at the right depth coming out of them." Grant has been working as a starting receiver over last year's first round pick Josh Doctson and has drawn good reviews this offseason. He might not hold off Doctson for the starting role, but it's clear Grant will be used more this season after he had only nine receptions in 2016.
