IND WR Kamar Aiken - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

This Jaguars defense is fourth in PPR points allowed to fantasy WRs. Jacksonville is also first in our aFPA vs. WR rankings. It's a brutal spot. Kamar Aiken is not a fantasy starter, especially this week.

IND WR Kamar Aiken - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Tennessee Titans

Donte Moncrief's stats are slowly deteriorating with Kamar Aiken earning more time in the Colts offense. He's still not on the fantasy radar, but this trend should be monitored, especially when Andrew Luck comes back.

BAL WR Kamar Aiken - Week 1, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Buffalo
Kamar Aiken was the most productive WR in Baltimore last year, especially after Steve Smith Sr. went down with an Achilles tear. He was only 56 yards shy of his first career 1,000-plus yard season, and he wound up with five receiving touchdowns – sadly that led the Ravens.

Aiken will face Buffalo as the only Baltimore holdover who doesn’t have any injury issues. As a result, he’s probably the safest option for fantasy owners. However, with Joe Flacco coming off an injury, the depth chart crowded with free agent acquisition Mike Wallace, freshly healthy Breshad Perriman, and the seemingly healed Smith, it’s probably better to take a wait-and-see approach with the entire Ravens’ offense. Aiken has upside as a deep league player only this week.

BAL WR Kamar Aiken - 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Kamar Aiken showed huge improvement in his second season as a Raven, putting up 944 yards and five touchdowns on 75 receptions. Aiken took on a more prominent role after Steve Smith Sr. got hurt on November 1st, seeing 83 of his 127 targets over the second half of the season. Aiken has a good chance of returning to a starting role, as Smith Sr. and last year’s first-round pick Breshad Perriman are both still recovering from injuries, and veteran Mike Wallace is the only real competition on the outside.

Fantasy Downside
The depth chart does look awfully busy in Baltimore, with Perriman, Smith Sr., and Wallace all vying for roles. Additionally, fourth-round pick Chris Moore may get a chance if none of the other players can distinguish themselves in camp. Also, while Aiken was the top option last year, he had only about a 23-percent share of the targets, which was similar to what Smith Sr. saw prior to his injury. Coordinator Marc Trestman’s offense throws a lot of passes, but also spreads the ball around. Aiken may struggle to achieve big-time numbers on this roster.

2016 Bottom Line
Aiken did most of his damage after Joe Flacco was lost with a season-ending knee injury, so he could improve with a healthy Flacco this year. When all is said and done, Aiken is probably the best combination of youth – 27 years old – and proven ability in the receiving corps, and entering the season healthy gives him a leg up on the other guys. He should be considered a high floor option for owners to take as a backup, and he’s excellent value at the end of drafts (which is where his ADP is).

BAL WR Kamar Aiken - Week 17, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Cincinnati

Kamar Aiken had eight catches for 66 yards last week with Ryan Mallett making his first start for the Ravens at quarterback. Aiken led the team in targets again, and he remains the WR1 on the roster in the team’s final week of the season.

The Ravens will have a tough time passing against the Bengals top ten pass defense, but Aiken should get plenty of targets again, making him a viable fantasy option. Because of the matchup and quarterback issues, he’s more of a WR3 than a WR2 option in most leagues, but fantasy owners shouldn’t neglect the fact that he’s caught at least five passes in every game since Steve Smith Sr. was injured.

BAL WR Kamar Aiken - Week 16, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Pittsburgh

Kamar Aiken had a great game against the Chiefs last week, catching eight balls for 128 yards and a touchdown. The Ravens have to be happy to see the third year player out of UCF putting up some consistent numbers as they look to next year and see which players should remain after this lost 2015 season.

Aiken goes up against a struggling Pittsburgh defense this week that had given up the second most passing yards in the league this year, and is tied for 22nd in most touchdown passes allowed to opposing offenses. Aiken is risky because of the issues at the quarterback position, but in a game that should feature a lot of the Ravens throwing the ball, he has low-end WR2/3 potential for fantasy owners needing a sleeper.

BAL WR Kamar Aiken - Week 15, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Kansas City

Kamar Aiken isn’t lighting the world on fire as the Ravens’ top guy in the passing offense, but he’s quietly putting up consistent numbers. He’s had at least five catches in six straight games now and had five receptions for 90 yard last week against Seattle. The Ravens were crushed, but Aiken managed to still turn in an adequate day.

This week, Aiken will go up against a Kansas City pass defense that’s been very average this season, giving up 22 touchdown passes on the season to opposing passers. Expect another day of five to seven catches and 70 to 100 yards from the UCF product, which should be good for low-end WR3 numbers in most fantasy leagues.
