Ravens release initial depth chart

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Crockett Gillmore, who is atop the tight end depth chart, has always been the clear favorite to start. Wide receiver Kamar Aiken, listed as the starter opposite Steve L Smith, was more productive than Marlon Brown last year, and unlike Brown and first-round pick Breshad Perriman, he’s stayed healthy and had a strong start to camp.

Lorenzo Taliaferro is listed as the No.2 running back behind Justin Forsett. Forsett, Taliaferro and Javorius Allen all complement each other very well. Forsett has vision and experience, and does most things, including picking up blitzes and catching the ball out of the backfield, well. Taliaferro is the power guy, and Allen has good hands and is extremely elusive

Fantasy Impact: 

Gillmore is a deep sleeper at tight end. He was a former third round pick, so he's no slouch. It's no sure thing that Maxx Williams overtakes him this season. We're expecting Perriman to win the starting job, but he has to get healthy. Taliaferro appears to be the best handcuff for Forsett, though the team would likely use a committee in the event of a Forsett injury.
