Still No. 3 on the Ravens' depth chart, Terrance West has been the No. 1 playmaker for the Baltimore offense so far this training camp. He's hitting holes, making cuts to elude tackles and producing big gains consistently.
With each passing training camp practice, West looks more like the potential filled third-round pick from 2014 and not a back who has bounced around three teams in the past three seasons.
"I think I’ve been focused, but I’m more dialed in because of the situation I was in and coming to Baltimore," West said. "This is my hometown, so there’s a lot at stake."
The story sums up the fantasy impact nicely: Ravens coach John Harbaugh hasn't officially named a starting running back this year, and it seems like the team is taking a wait-and-see approach in the backfield. This is the deepest running back group in Ravens' history, and Baltimore could either go with the hot hand from week to week or stick with one back if someone clearly steps up. Almost one full week into camp, Justin Forsett and Buck Allen are taking the reps with the first two teams, which doesn't come as a surprise. Forsett has led Baltimore in rushing the past two years, and Allen started the final six games of last season. Both have been solid in training camp. But West has put himself in the conversation with his impressive start to camp. He has clearly caught the attention of the coaching staff.
