Lamar Jackson missed practice today with a stomach bug. Joe Flacco also sat out with his ongoing hip issue. The Ravens have yet to announce a starter for Week 11.

Fantasy Impact:

At this point, the only one of the three truly worth considering for your lineup may be Lamar Jackson. But with Jackson missing today's session, our guess is Robert Griffin III becomes even more likely to get the call if Flacco can't go.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Ross should be able to play through the groin injury as he did last week. If A.J. Green remains out, he could be productive, but it’s a tough matchup against the Ravens.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (right hip) missed practice again Thursday. Flacco’s absence doesn’t mean he won’t play against the Bengals. Lamar Jackson is expected to start if Flacco can’t play, though the team has flirted with the idea of starting Robert Griffin instead.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Ross had a solid game last week and could be leaned on again if A.J. Green can’t play against the Ravens.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (right hip) did not practice Wednesday. Flacco’s absence doesn’t mean he won’t play against the Bengals. Lamar Jackson is expected to start if Flacco can’t play, though the team has flirted with the idea of starting Robert Griffin instead.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco's status 'up in the air' for Week 11

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is nursing a hip injury that could threaten his availability for Sunday’s game against Cincinnati.

With the Ravens coming off a bye, Flacco received an additional week of rest and treatment after sustaining the injury on Nov. 4 in the opening minutes of a 23-16 loss to Pittsburgh.

Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that Flacco’s status against the Bengals is “up in the air” and could be a game-time decision.

Fantasy Impact:

If the 11-year veteran can’t go, either Griffin III or rookie Jackson will start for the first time with Baltimore. The team had a Week 10 bye after losing three-straight. The Ravens have also been wanting to get more snaps for Jackson before Flacco was injured, so this seems like it may be a good opportunity to turn things over to Jackson. Those in need of a QB, or in deep QB leagues, may want to consider picking him up if they didn't already.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco's hip injury may require surgery

Joe Flacco is having tests to determine the severity of his hip injury, source confirms. Going to be an interesting week in Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact:

The Ravens are on bye this week but that shouldn't stop you from adding Lamar Jackson if you are in a two quarterback or superflex league. There is some speculation this could end up keeping Flacco out for a prolonged period, and even if it doesn't, if the Ravens were thinking about making a move to Jackson to see what they have, this would be the perfect excuse, especially with the bye.

Raven's Beat: Team sticking with QB Joe Flacco for now

ESPN - [Full Article]

John Harbaugh is essentially sticking with Joe Flacco for now, but he has left an opening for Lamar Jackson.

Fantasy Impact:

Flacco's numbers have declined during Baltimore's three-game losing streak. He has thrown 12 touchdowns and six interceptions this season. His 84.2 passer rating ranks No. 25 and behind the likes of Ryan Tannehill and Eli Manning. What has hurt Flacco is playing behind a banged-up offensive line and throwing to receivers who've dropped the second-most passes in the NFL, the story all said. Harbaugh has opened the door for Jackson saying he wants more playing time for him.

Ravens WR Jordan Lasley (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 9.

Friday, November 2, 2018, 7:35pm

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot, questionable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 9. Collins should be fine to play but it’s a tough matchup and he’ll be running behind a banged up offensive line that is missing both starting tackles.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Olsen posted a 4-56-1 line on four targets against the Ravens. He has a great matchup against the Bucs this week.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. This is certainly worrisome, though it’s possible that the Ravens are just giving him as much rest as possible. We’ll see what he’s able to do on Friday.
