|Colts WR2: Chester Rogers or Ryan Grant?|
Camp battle to watch
By: Mike Krueger | Wed May 9, 11:00 am
|Both Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers will soon be battling it out for the role of WR2 - aka T.Y. Hilton’s lead sidekick - in a revamped and redesigned Colts’ offense that’s desperate for some juice. Both wideouts have plenty to prove. Both, too, have plenty of opportunity. (Indianapolis Star)|
FFToday's Take: Both wide receivers will be dealing with the challenge of learning a new offensive scheme but the biggest hurdle for Rogers will be remaining healthy. He battled hamstring injuries last season limiting him to 10 games. Grant was signed as a free agent this off-season and had modest success last year in Washington (45-573-4). This will be a situation for fantasy owners to watch during training camp.
|Ravens swap out Ryan Grant for Michael Crabtree|
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Mar 16, 5:00 pm
|The Baltimore Ravens reached a three-year agreement with Michael Crabtree on Friday.
Terms weren't disclosed but Crabtree received a three-year, $21 million deal, including $15 million in first two years and $11 million guaranteed ($7 million signing bonus), a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal could be worth up to $20 million in first two years. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Ravens had agreed with former Redskins' receiver Ryan Grant on a four-year contract but Grant failed a physical due to a foot injury. However, Grant has since been cleared by an independent doctor leading to speculation that the Ravens simply preferred Crabtree over Grant once Crabtree became available. In any case, Crabtree should be the Ravens primary option on the outside after the Ravens released Jeremy Maclin. Mike Wallace led Baltimore in receiving last year and finished as the WR38 in PPR leagues.
|Ravens release Jeremy Maclin|
$5 million in cap savings
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Mar 14, 3:00 pm
|The Ravens have released veteran wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, as Baltimore continues to shake up that unit.
Releasing Maclin brings $5 million in cap savings. He was going to count $7.5 million against the salary cap in 2018 and was reportedly due a $1 million roster bonus Friday. (BaltimoreRavens.com)|
FFToday's Take: Ravens have brought in John Brown and Ryan Grant in free agency to replace Maclin who has missed 8 games the last two seasons, averaged 42 catches, 488 yards and 2.5 TDs during that time. Maclin will be 30 in May and while he's struggled recently, he should find a home relatively soon, perhaps in Philadelphia.
