|2022 was mostly a wash for Bateman as a promising start was dashed by a broken foot in Week 8. Health has been an issue for the former 1st rounder, as he's only played 19 games in his two seasons. Even more concerning is that even after seven months of rehab, Bateman still needed a "cortisone type shot" in his foot and missed several days of minicamp earlier this month. While Bateman and the Ravens hope that will be a non-issue by Week 1, the signing of OBJ might have a bigger impact on Bateman's role than his foot. Finances and hype have knocked Bateman down a peg in the pecking order, and that's not a great place to be on a team transitioning into an entirely new offense.
At best Bateman is the third passing option between Andrews and OBJ, and will stay there until he proves otherwise by being healthy and efficient. I haven't even mentioned the addition of 22nd overall pick Zay Flowers, and how he'll be another mouth to feed. I do think one of these receivers is going to be a surprise fantasy value, but like lots of players on this offense, the range of outcomes varies wildly. For now, add Bateman at the end of your drafts and hope the foot holds up.

FFToday's Take: The Ravens receiving room didn't have much value outside of Zay Flowers last season. Agholor finished the year with a 35-381-4 line and wasn't much of a fantasy factor. At best he'll be fourth in the pecking order for targets next season behind Flowers, TE Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman.
