Ravens Beat: Breshad Perriman 'has a shot' to become team's WR1 as a rookie

Tuesday, May 19, 2015, 5:17pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman enters a very favorable position to put up some big numbers in his rookie season. He is the decided favorite to begin the season as a starter over Marlon Brown, Kamar Aiken and Michael Campanaro. He has a shot to become the Ravens' No. 1 receiver because coach John Harbaugh talked about how he wanted to reduce Steve L Smith's snaps to save on his wear and tear. And Perriman's speed is the perfect complement to Joe Flacco's strong arm.

Perriman probably won't make many short lists for rookie of the year before the season, because he's considered a more raw prospect than some of the wide receivers taken in the first round. He has to improve his route running and consistency catching the ball, which is why he fell to the Ravens at No. 26 overall.

"We got a guy with a tremendous amount of talent who’s only going to get better," assistant general manager Eric DeCosta said. "I’m not going to say he’s 'elite' or this or that, but he’s a very talented guy. He’s motivated, he’s smart, it’s important to him, comes from a football family, and he’s on the come [up], and we’re going to get the most out of him as we can."

Fantasy Impact:

The interesting takeaway here may be that the team would like to limit Smith's snaps, though that may not be easy given the team's situation at receiver. Harbaugh recently talked up Brown, so perhaps he's planning to play Brown over Smith in some situations.

Scouting Report

Divisional Round – Steve Smith Sr. vs. New England

Steve Smith Sr. had a nice game in last week’s victory over the rival Steelers, bringing veteran route running and toughness to the Baltimore passing game, and ending up with five catches and 101 yards. Smith is coming off an inconsistent but productive 1,000+ yard season with the Ravens, and he’ll be eager to show up against the Patriots.

He will likely see a lot of Darrelle Revis however, hurting his chances to blow up. Smith has been a little bit feast or famine this year anyway, and I would expect that to continue in this matchup, We have him as a borderline top ten WR this week, putting him in low-end WR2 territory in most fantasy playoff formats.
