Ravens RB Alex Collins (illness) did not practice Wednesday. “Illness” rarely keeps a player from playing on Sunday, so Collins should be out there.

Redskins sign WR Breshad Perriman

NBC Sports - [Full Article]

According to multiple reports, the Redskins are going to sign former Baltimore Ravens receiver Breshad Perriman. He had worked out for the team earlier today.

Fantasy Impact:

We all know the story of Perriman by now, he was the 26th overall pick in the 2015 draft. His problems started right away as he missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury. Perriman’s best year came in 2016, when he played in 16 games and caught 33 passes for 499 yards and three touchdowns. But he couldn’t build on that season in 2017 as he was limited to 11 games with a concussion and he caught just 10 passes for 77 yards.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) will miss time

The Cincinnati Bengals could be without running back Joe Mixon for an undetermined period of time.

Mixon will undergo arthroscopic surgery Saturday to clean up the knee he injured in Thursday night's win against the Baltimore Ravens, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo reported, via sources informed of the situation.

The timeline for Mixon's return won't be clear under after the procedure is completed, Pelissero and Garafolo reported.

Related players: Mark Walton, Tra Carson, Giovani Bernard

Fantasy Impact:

Bernard should see feature back touches with Mixon sidelined and may have that sort of value for a full month if Mixon's recovery doesn't go smoothly. Consider Bernard a high-end RB2 while Mixon is out. Walton and Carson are next up on the depth chart.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) practiced fully Wednesday. Eifert has a nice matchup with the Ravens, who have struggled to cover the tight position. He only played 40% of the snaps in Week 1, however.

Ravens WR Janarion Grant (hand, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) to miss some time

Haven't heard any definitive diagnosis on running back Kenneth Dixon's knee injury, but the expectation is he'll miss some time.

Related players: Alex Collins, Javorius Allen, Patrick Ricard

Fantasy Impact:

Dixon limped off in the final two minutes of yesterday's blowout over the Bills. Injuries have been a significant issue for the third-year RB and now it looks like he's going to miss more time. It should mean a bump in work for Collins and Allen.

Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 1.

ESPN: It takes a year for TEs to catch on in NFL

Monday, September 3, 2018, 9:02am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Over the past 15 years, only two rookie tight ends have produced more than 600 yards receiving. The Giants’ Evan Engram totaled 722 yards receiving last season, and John Carlson recorded 627 with the Seahawks in 2008.

Of the 18 tight ends drafted this year, only three are projected starters: Hayden Hurst, Miami’s Mike Gesicki and the New York Jets’ Chris Herndon.

Fantasy Impact:

The biggest reason, the story said, is that tight end is a position different than any other on offense. Like offensive linemen, tight ends have to learn the concepts of blocking schemes. Like wide receivers, tight ends have to understand the nuances of route-running. The story also noted Jason Witten, Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates all totaled fewer than 45 catches and 550 yards receiving in their rookie seasons. Each one eclipsed 80 receptions and 950 yards the next.

Ravens make Robert Griffin III their QB2

Tom Pelissero on Twitter - [Full Article]

Some clarity here: My understanding is the Ravens aren’t trading RG3 and the plan is he’ll enter the season as No. 2 QB.

Related players: Lamar Jackson, Joe Flacco

Fantasy Impact:

The rookie Jackson gets to sit and learn, according to Pelissero. RG3 showed enough this preseason that he will start the year backing up Flacco.
