Rashod Bateman is OUT vs. Giants in Week 6

We break down the news that Bateman has a foot injury. What it means for Week 6 and beyond.

Friday update: Bateman, as expected, is out this week. Devin Duvernay has some appeal, but the only must start for pass catcher is Mark Andrews.

Thursday update: Bateman once again was not practicing on Thursday, per Jamison Hensley. At this point it would be a minor miracle to see him play in Week 6.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman did not participate in practice on Wednesday after sitting out against the Bengals on Sunday night with an ankle injury. The Ravens face the New York Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy football implications

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Bateman “might” be able to return as soon as the matchup against the Giants, but if he doesn’t, TE Mark Andrews and WRs Devin Duvernay and DeMarcus Robinson can expect to see plenty of targets. The Ravens may need to rely on their ground game against the Giants’ strong pass defense this weekend.

Before his ankle injury, Bateman had scored two touchdowns in the first two weeks of the season. His best game of the season saw him add 108 receiving yards in the Ravens’ loss agains Miami, though he finished his most recent game with just 17 yards over six targets against the Buffalo Bills.
