Ravens place Breshad Perriman on IR

ESPN - [Full Article]

Placing first-round pick Breshad Perriman on injured reserve Tuesday just adds another question mark to the Baltimore Ravens' uncertain wide receiver situation for 2016.

The Ravens were hoping Perriman would play the final four games this season, which would give him some much-needed playing time and give the team some insight on what kind of impact it could expect from him going forward. Now, Baltimore doesn't know much more about Perriman than it did April 30, when the team used the No. 26 overall pick on him.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story wondered if Perriman is going to be an immediate starter and playmaker like Amari Cooper, or will he need time to develop as a backup like DeVante Parker. The Ravens hope Perriman's speed will be the perfect compliment to Joe Flacco's strong arm. Still, his inconsistent hands and unpolished route-running could make him a project in his first season of playing. Fantasy owners will have the same questions.
