Ravens Beat: WR Kamar Aiken 'stole the show' during second OTA practice

Baltimore Ravens - [Full Article]

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken quite simply just gets the job done, and he does it in a variety of ways.

He stole the show last week during the Ravens’ second OTA practice open to the media. Aiken hauled in a deep bomb, stretched for a fingertips grab over the middle, tiptoed the sideline and out leapt a defender for a score.

Aiken was a jack-of-all-trades last season too in a breakout campaign. He caught 24 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season. He scored a 19-yard touchdown against the New England Patriots in the divisional playoffs.

With Torrey Smith in San Francisco and Jacoby Jones in San Diego, Aiken now has a chance to become a starting wide receiver. There’s a lot of competition for the spot, but Aiken is competing on the first team and looks to have just as much a chance as any other.

Fantasy Impact: 

Aiken was 12th in the league in fantasy points (PPR) per target last season. Breshad Perriman figures to win the starting job opposite Steve L Smith, but Aiken could serve as the team's WR3 or even start if Perriman struggles out of the gate.
