2021 Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Team Outlook: Talented Lamar Jackson Still Needs Passing Breakthrough

  2021 Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Team Outlook: Talented Lamar Jackson Still Needs Passing Breakthrough A fantasy football breakdown of the Baltimore Ravens by high-stakes legend Shawn Childs CoachingJohn Harbaugh returns for his 13th season as the Ravens head coach. He has a 129-74 record with nine playoff berths and one Super Bowl title. The Ravens went 35-13 over the last three seasons, with Lamar Jackson making 37 starts. Harbaugh has one losing season in his career (5-11 in 2015). © Provided by Sports Illustrated Last year Baltimore dropped to 19th in offensive yards (2nd in 2019) while scoring 468 points (7th – 531 in 2019).

The Ravens have taken offense to suggestions that they were lacking at wide receiver, but their last three drafts make it clear that there’s a concerted effort going on to improve the group.

Rashod Bateman was a first-round pick and Tylan Wallace came in the fourth round, which means the Ravens have drafted six receivers over the last three years. They have 10 wideouts on the roster altogether, including free agent signee Sammy Watkins, and offensive coordinator Greg Roman thinks the new arrivals sets the stage for a more expansive offense in 2021.

“I don’t want to call it an embarrassment of riches, but when you talk about Hollywood [Marquise Brown] and Devin [Duvernay] and Miles [Boykin], I really feel good about the guys we have,” Roman said, via the team’s website. “This offense is really one that runs through Lamar. We’re always going to do what gives us the best chance to win. When you add talent like that, it’s really going to expand our profile quite a bit, actually. To play with the kind of balance that we really want to play with. I really think it will probably take some pressure off guys that have been here like Marquise, free him up a little bit as well. The field’s about 53 yards wide, and I think people are going to have to defend all 53 yards of it.”

With Roman Reigns at His Side, Paul Heyman Remains WWE’s Top Promo

  With Roman Reigns at His Side, Paul Heyman Remains WWE’s Top Promo After an iconic run as Brock Lesnar’s “advocate,” Heyman was hesitant to take another on-screen role. But working beside Reigns has proven to be a match made in heaven. For years, the mike drop has represented the most cutting way to close out a promo.Ever the innovator, Paul Heyman once again changed that distinction, introducing wrestling fans to the phone flip during the final segment of Talking Smack two Fridays ago.“I just knew, at the end of that promo, I wanted to do something,” Heyman says. “I don’t hold a microphone, so I needed to do the equivalent of a mike drop. The flip of the phone was what I had in mind.

Roman said that there will be “some things that people are going to see from us that they haven’t seen before,” which may call to mind some of the offseason chatter from the Ravens about how the offense would evolve. That didn’t happen as fully as many in Baltimore may have hoped, but they’ll get another bite at the apple this time around.

Greg Roman: Adding WRs in draft allows Ravens to “expand our profile” offensively originally appeared on Pro Football Talk

Adam Schefter makes surprising admission about bombshell Aaron Rodgers story .
Some fans are angry over Schefter’s admission, as they believe it was inappropriate for him to steal the spotlight just hours before the draft. Schefter also contradicted himself a bit. As Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk notes, Schefter’s initial tweet and ensuing ESPN story about Rodgers specifically said “league and team sources told ESPN on Thursday.” That doesn’t mesh with what Schefter told Patrick.If Schefter knew definitively weeks ago that Rodgers wants out of Green Bay, it would be awfully risky for him to sit on such a huge story.
