The Saints have released running back Terrance West, according to multiple reports.
Jonathan Williams and rookie Boston Scott have both impressed at running back for New Orleans, which might have forced West out. The good news for West is that release gives him some time to find a new team ahead of the mass cuts set to take place after the preseason.
Terrance West has signed with the Saints.
The former third-round pick spent the past three seasons with Baltimore and opened 2017 as the starter, but Alex Collins took over the backfield when West was injured in Week 5. In New Orleans, West could have a significant early-season role with Mark Ingram suspended for four games, but he likely won't be worth anything more than a low-floor, late-round rental in fantasy drafts. That said, if he makes the final roster, the 27-year-old might be a good FLEX option to pair with Ingram for the first few weeks of the season.
Terrance West is not playing today.
West is apparently inactive as a healthy scratch, as Danny Woodhead is also healthy now and Baltimore's backfield has become crowded with Alex Collins and Javorius Allen already in the mix. Alex Collins establishing himself as a very good runner while West has been out with his groin injury, and West might not be active for the rest of the season.
Terrance West (calf) was a full participant in today's practice.
West missed the last four games while dealing with the calf issue, but it looks like he'll be out there this Sunday against the Packers. The bye week looks like it did him some good, but his role in the backfield is very much in the air. Alex Collins has averaged 5.6 yards per carry this season, and it'd be a major surprise if he didn't remain the lead guy in the backfield even with West back. West doesn't need to be on fantasy rosters quite yet.
Terrance West (calf) is out for Week 9.
West remains week-to-week while dealing with his calf injury, and the Ravens have a Week 10 bye that'll give him more time to heal up for Baltimore's next game after this Sunday. However, with Alex Collins emerging as a real force in the backfield, West is unlikely to return into a large role with the Ravens and can be dropped from fantasy teams.
Terrance West (calf) has been ruled out for Week 8.
It's not a surprise, as the Ravens are playing tomorrow night against the Dolphins, giving West less time to receiver from his calf injury. He remains week-to-week and should be considered questionable for Week 9.
Terrance West (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday.
West will miss his second game in a row with the calf injury. He's week-to-week, so West is probably on the doubtful side of things for Week 8, as the Ravens play the Dolphins in less than a week on Thursday Night Football.
Terrance West (calf) did not practice today.
West is considered week-to-week with his calf injury, and he probably won't be playing this week against the Vikings.
Terrance West (calf) has officially been ruled out for Week 6.
This was fully expected and is now official, as West is expected to miss some time with his calf. This might not be the only game he misses, and consider him questionable for Week 7 against the Vikings. Baltimore will roll with Alex Collins and Javorius Allen on Sunday versus the Bears.
Terrance West (calf) "expected to miss some time."
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says West won't have an "extended absence" because of his calf injury, so it sounds like he'll miss a game or two. Javorius Allen and Alex Collins will handle the load with West out of the lineup, and hopefully West is able to get back soon. He doesn't need to be kept on fantasy rosters if you are looking for roster space.
Terrance West gets carted off with a calf injury.
On the first drive of the game, West went down with a calf injury and is being called doubtful to return. Don't expect him to return against the Raiders. He had two carries for 17 yards before leaving.
Terrance West rushes four times in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.
He finished with negative-seven yards and didn't catch a pass. Baltimore should make it a two-man backfield with Alex Collins and Javorius Allen, and they started moving in that direction in Week 4. West can be dropped.
Terrance West fumbles in Week 3 loss to the Jags.
West carried six times for 26 yards, including the lost fumble, in London. He started the game despite being questionable coming in, but the fumble appeared to have landed him in the dog house, with head coach John Harbaugh visibly upset with West on the sidelines. Teammate Alex Collins played very well in the game, so West could potentially lose his starting role in the backfield—but we probably won't know until next week against the Steelers.
Terrance West (calf) is active for Week 3.
West made the trip to London and he's ready to go for the 9:30 AM ET start time against the Jaguars. Still, he's a risky fantasy option after missing some practice time while he also has to deal with Javorius Allen and Alex Collins in the backfield for touches.
Terrance West (calf) is back practicing for the Ravens.
He missed the last two days of practice, but returning today certainly helps his chances of playing on Sunday in London. West is likely to be listed as questionable when the official injury report for the game is released later today
Terrance West (calf) did not practice today.
This makes two straight days of missed practice for the Ravens running back. The Ravens travel to London for this Sunday's game, so it's possible they decide to just leave West home. Expect Javorius Allen and Alex Collins to carry the load against Jacksonville this Sunday.
Terrance West (calf) did not practice for the Ravens today.
West left Sunday's win with the injury, and he's also being pushed by Javorius Allen and Alex Collins for backfield work. Hopefully West is able to practice and play this week, but he's looking like a risky option even if he suits up in London on Sunday.
Terrance West scores in Week 2 win.
West rushed eight times for 22 yards, including a four-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He also caught two passes for 23 yards. Javorius Allen, though, handled 19 touches and turned them into 101 yards and a score, as it looks like he quickly took over the backfield for Baltimore. West also has Alex Collins pushing him for work, so it will be difficult to trust him in Week 3 against the Jaguars in London.
Terrance West scores in Ravens' Week 1 win.
West carried 19 times for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals. Danny Woodhead went down with a hamstring injury, but Javorius Allen actually led the team with 21 carries in the game. Perhaps it was because the Ravens pretty much had the game in hand, but Allen could be a major threat to West's workload. The good news is the Ravens ran the ball 42 times in the game and appear poised to pound the rock this season to help out their top defense. Baltimore plays Cleveland in Week 2, and West should be a fine FLEX option.
Terrance West rushed five times for 17 yards on Saturday night.
Baltimore's starter also caught a six-yard pass. Due to Danny Woodhead's injury history, West has sneaky workhorse potential on a team that will win with their defense in 2017. He still has an ADP in the triple digits, making the 26-year-old a potential steal in fantasy drafts.
Terrance West gets stuffed in preseason game against the Dolphins.
West had six carries for -2 yards while adding one reception for six yards. As evident based on his stats, West had no room to run against Miami, getting hit almost immediately on his carries. He did have a six-yard carry, but that was pretty much it. The interior offensive line of Baltimore looks like it could be an issue this season.
West impressive in Ravens' preseason win.
The 26-year-old rushed five times for 23 yards and one touchdown as the lead back for Baltimore. Kenneth Dixon's season-ending injury opened up a big opportunity for West, and he should handle a large chunk of the rushing attempts for the Ravens in the regular season, splitting time with Danny Woodhead. He'll look to keep it up against Miami next week.
Terrance West thinks you should draft him in fantasy football.
"It'd be smart to grab me. That's the smart way to do it," West said. When asked, "why's that?" by a reporter, the 26-year-old running back responded, "Why's that? You'll see." With Kenneth Dixon out for the season with a torn meniscus, West could be in for a sizable workload this year. Currently going late in fantasy drafts, West will be a big bargain if he lives up to his word.
Ryan Mink of the Ravens' official team site thinks the team might use a RBBC this season.
Mink wrote that the Ravens "could employ a three-headed monster this season" in the backfield, with Terrance West, Danny Woodhead, and Kenneth Dixon. It's easy to predict roles to start the season, as West is likely to get a lot of early down work and Woodhead should take almost all the passing downs while Kenneth Dixon is suspended for four games. When Dixon returns, the situation could become murky for fantasy purposes. The team is high on the second-year back Dixon, but if West plays lights out to open the season he could runaway with a feature role. Woodhead is likely the safest of the Ravens running backs (especially in PPR leagues), with a clear role on third downs.
Greg Roman says he is "very excited about Terrance West."
Roman was fired as offensive coordinator of the Bills last season and is now a senior offensive assistant with Baltimore, and he is sure to bring some new run-play concepts to his new team. Talking about West, Roman also said, "I'm looking forward to him toting the rock this year." Kenneth Dixon is serving a four-game suspension to start the season, so West will be the early-down runner with Danny Woodhead as the passing-down option early on. If he gets off to a hot start, West could take the job and run away with it, making him an intriguing option in the mid-to-late rounds of fantasy drafts this summer.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said running back Terrance West "has improved."
Second-year back Kenneth Dixon is suspended for four games, leaving West as the clear starter to open the season. The Ravens added Greg Roman as a senior offensive assistant to help improve the running game. Roman was the OC for the Niners from 2011-2014 (with Jim Harbaugh, John's brother), and was the OC for the Bills in 2015 when they led the league in rushing. West says the addition of Roman will help make this year "great for running backs." Danny Woodhead is also in the backfield, mainly as a passing down back, but West will have a chance to secure the early-down role while Kenneth Dixon is out for the first four games. The Ravens have made it clear they want to run the ball more this season.
Terrance West is the Ravens' number one running back, John Harbaugh said at coaches breakfast during NFL Owners Meetings.
Second-year back Kenneth Dixon is suspended for four games, so it only makes sense for West to be considered the starter for now. Danny Woodhead is also in the mix as a third-down back for Baltimore. West might have a chance to run away with the early down role while Dixon is suspended.
Terrance West rushed five times for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
He also caught four passes for 17 yards. West has been outplayed by Kenneth Dixon down the stretch and will almost certainly not have a starting job in 2017. He finishes his first full season in Baltimore with 193 rushes for 774 yards (4.0 YPC) and five touchdowns, and added 34 catches for 236 yards and one touchdown.
Terrance West rushed 10 times for 27 yards in the Ravens' loss to the Steelers.
West was again outplayed as a runner by Kenneth Dixon, but he was able to add three catches for 28 yards (Dixon had one catch for one yard). The two should split the workload in Week 17 against the Bengals, but Dixon will be the better option.
Terrance West leads the Ravens in carries in Week 15.
West had 13 carries for 77 yards and four catches for 45 yards against the Eagles. It was kind of surprising to see West lead the Ravens backfield after taking a backseat in Week 14. The Ravens backfield is hard to predict, so West and Dixon are both FLEX options.
Terrance West takes a backseat to Kenneth Dixon in Week 14.
West had only two carries for two yards, and added four catches for 24 yards against the Patriots. West (six touches) didn't get much work behind rookie Kenneth Dixon (19 touches). West's best play was on a reception from Joe Flacco where he made a nifty move to make the first guy miss. West is a risky FLEX option against the Eagles next week.
Terrance West scores twice in Week 13.
West has ten carries for 50 yards and a touchdown along with three catches for 18 yards and a touchdown. West is performing well with his touches, but so is rookie Kenneth Dixon, so he finds himself in a split backfield. West is a FLEX option.
Kenneth Dixon finally takes over West as leader in Ravens' backfield.
Terrance West rushed 13 times for 48 yards, adding 16 yards on three catches. West saw two less touches than Dixon and gained 16 fewer yards than the rookie. It looks like West is--at best--the lesser half of a committee now, and Dixon could keep taking more work. West will be a weak FLEX for Week 13.
Terrance West scores 18-yard touchdown in Week 11.
West had eight carries for 42 yards and a touchdown. He also had an eleven-yard catch. Kenneth Dixon looked very good as well, and this may be trending towards more of a 50/50 split. West is still a decent FLEX option next week against the Bengals.
West inefficient with 22 touches in Ravens' win.
Even against the weak Cleveland defense, West couldn't get anything going, turning 21 carries into 65 yards and catching a 12-yard pass. He was severely outplayed by rookie Kenneth Dixon, who rushed 6 times for 38 yards, adding 5 catches for 42 yards. Over the past three games, West is averaging 2.18 yards per carry and has just 10 total fantasy points. Dixon deserves more touches next week against Dallas, and it will be at West's expense.
