Ravens training camp highlights & lowlights: 7/26/18 Another exciting day of practice as the Baltimore Ravens worked in front of the big set of bleachers Authentic Za'Darius Smith Jersey , allowing fans to experience football in the front row. Fans certainly saw their fair share of touchdowns, too, with multiple deep shots landing in the arms of the receivers.Note: Today the Ravens did not wear padsPlayer of the day: John BrownYou can always feel the tension of a big play in progress. The quarterback going through his progressions, until finding the big route down the sideline and launching the football into the sky. Fans begin oohing as they see the battle between cornerback and receiver, hoping the catch is made. Today, John Brown caught that football, 50-yards deep and into the endzone for the touchdown. Joe Flacco’s deep ball is ready for action, even against sophomore cornerback Marlon Humphrey.DefenseSpeaking of Marlon, unfortunately, today he had a rough practice. Tim White, John Brown and Jordan Lasley all managed to beat him for touchdowns.Patrick Onwuasor intercepted a ball against the starters and had a lane to the endzone with maybe two men left to beat. While defensive coordinator Don Martindale mentioned Kenny Young jockeying for the starting role, I believe Patrick’s consistently ahead of the linebackers trying to steal the position beside C.J. Mosley.Tavon Young produced another strong practice, this time bullying Jaelon Acklin on a short throw in one-on-one drills. Fans were calling for a flag, but there certainly was not enough contact to draw one. Young is going to produce strong results in the slot this season.OffenseThe offense produced multiple big plays, including Hayden Hurst hauling in an 18-yard catch, one which we’ve all seen many times in the form of Dennis Pitta. It’s good seeing the first-round pick back on the field after missing a couple practices.Breshad Perriman continues to deliver. He produced a 15-yard catch against the starting defense, then hauled in another later on. I’m excited to see him play next week.It wasn’t all pretty by the receivers today though, as Jaleel Scott dropped two passes during drills without coverage. He later couldn’t complete a catch which was behind him. He managed to get one hand on the ball, but couldn’t rope it in. I have not seen anything of note after his redzone touchdown earlier last week. He may be fighting for a roster spot more than some believe. QB that needs to be in your lineup in Week 5:Matt Ryan Youth Maurice Canady Jersey , Atlanta Falcons:Matchup: @ SteelersWeek 4 Stats:419 Passing YDS, 3 TD, 29.3 PTSMatt Ryan has been a marvel through four games this year. He’s currently the second highest scoring quarterback in fantasy football, averaging 27.2 PTS per week. He finally has a receiver who likes to visit the end zone in Calvin Ridley, the rookie is currently leading the league in receiving touchdowns. And he has a terrific match up this weekend with a dreadful Steelers defense. This should be another shootout and I’m expecting excellent numbers for Matty Ice in Pittsburgh. Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesQB I am hesitant about in Week 5:Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles:Matchup: vs. VikingsWeek 4 Stats: 348 Passing YDS, 2 TD, 1 Fumble, 20.7 PTSTwo weeks removed from returning to the turf, I’m still not sold that Carson Wentz is totally healthy. He has fumbled in both games and hasn’t looked like the star the world saw last season. Both games have been nail-biters and this week he faces his toughest test of 2018 so far, the Vikings D. Everson Griffen won’t be in pads, but I’m severely worried about Doug Pederson’s signal caller, and I think Nick Foles should have never been pulled from the starting rotation.Photo by Mitchell Leff/Getty ImagesQB that I am avoiding in Week 5:Russell Wilson, Seattle SeahawksMatchup: vs. RamsWeek 4 Stats: 172 Passing YDS, 21 Rushing YDS, 9 PTSWhat a disappointment Russell Wilson has been to start off 2018. To give him the benefit of the doubt, this is the worst supporting cast that Pete Carroll has ever provided him with. Injuries have plagued this unit the entire year. Doug Baldwin returned last week against the Cardinals but was visibly not the same player and looks to be playing at less than full strength, promising tight end Will Dissly was lost for the season, and they still cannot manage to get Wilson much pass protection. This week against the Rams’ stout defense , I want no part of Russell Wilson.Photo by Ralph Freso/Getty ImagesRB that needs to be in your lineup in Week 5:Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys:Matchup: @ TexansWeek 4 Stats:156 Rushing YDS, 4 Receptions, 88 Receiving YDS, 1 Receiving TD, 34 PTSAlthough having some knee and ankle soreness this week in practice, Zeke should be good to go on Sunday against the Texans. After having the second-highest rushing total of his career on Sunday against Detroit, he should be ready to feast on Houston’s defense that has allowed 26-plus RB FPTS in 3 of the 4 games they’ve played in this season.Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty ImagesRB I like in Week 5:Adrian Peterson, Washington RedskinsMatchup: @ SaintsWeek 4 Stats: BYEAdrian Peterson has found a career resurgence in the nation’s capital. The former Oklahoma Sooner has provided a veteran leader in the locker room and has been an absolute monster on the field. After manhandling Arizona in the opener, his tour against his former clubs continues with this week’s stop in the Big Easy on Monday Night Football.Photo by Rob Carr/Getty ImagesRB to keep an eye on in Week 5:Nyheim Hines, Indianapolis ColtsMatchup: @ PatriotsWeek 4 Stats:10 Rushing YDS, 9 Receptions, 63 Receiving YDS, 2 Receiving TD, 28.3 PTSEven in defeat last weekend against the Texans, Nyheim Hines put the AFC on notice. I don’t expect the same output tonight at Gillette, but with Marlon Mack, T.Y. Hilton, and Jack Doyle all inactive James Hurst Jersey , he’s going to get the opportunity for another breakout performance.Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesRB that I am avoiding in Week 5:Joe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals:Matchup: vs. DolphinsJoe Mixon will be suiting up this Sunday for the first time since Week 2 on Thursday Night Football in Baltimore. He missed two games after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. He was a limited participant in practice this morning and knowing how well Giovani Bernard has been playing in Mixon’s absence, I’d be shocked to not see a committee approach in Week 5. Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesWR that needs to be in your lineup in Week 5:Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams:Matchup:@ SeahawksWeek 4 Stats: 9 Receptions, 162 YDS, 2 TD, 37.2 PTSCooper Kupp is the best receiver on the best team in the National Football League. Let that sink in. He ravaged the Vikings defense last week on Thursday Night Football for 37.2 PTS. The former 3rd round pick is averaging six receptions and a touchdown per game this season. The Legion of Boom is no more, Kupp is ready to put the league on noticePhoto by Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesWR to keep an eye on in Week 5:Julian Edelman, New England Patriots:Matchup: vs. ColtsJulian Edelman returns from his four-game suspension this evening against the Colts. The veteran wideout will be participating in his first regular season game since 2016 after missing all of last season with a torn ACL. Look for Tom Brady to get Edelman going early tonight against a weak Colts’ secondary.Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty ImagesWR I am hesitant about in Week 5:Devin Funchess, Carolina Panthers:Matchup: vs. GiantsWeek 4 Stats: BYEAs much as I like rollin’ with the Funchess, I’m going to sit Week 5 out. The Panthers match up with the improved Giants’ secondary a week removed from their bye, and with Janoris Jenkins likely to shadow the former Wolverine and cut into his already minuscule target share, I’m not foreseeing the best outing on Sunday.Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty ImagesWR that I am avoiding in Week 5:Sammy Watkins, Kansas City Chiefs:Matchup: vs. JaguarsWeek 4 Stats: 0 Receptions, 0 YDS, 0 PTSFirst off, I would like to thank Sammy Watkins for winning me my Week 4 matchup. Up 25 points going into Monday Night Football, I did not expect the best outing against the Broncos, but a hamstring injury kept Watkins out of the first half and the remainder of the game and I was able to sleep soundly Monday night. This week he’s good to go Authentic Marlon Humphrey Jersey , the downside is that he will be matched up with A.J. Bouye and the Jacksonville Jaguars. I can’t expect him to put up a worse outing than last week, but it’s not going to be pretty.Photo by David Eulitt/Getty ImagesTE that needs to be in your lineup in Week 5:Eric Ebron, Indianapolis Colts:Matchup: @ PatriotsWeek 4 Stats: As much as I talk down Eric Ebron, tonight he should be in for the game of his life. The Colts’ decimated arsenal makes him Andrew Luck’s top target against a mediocre New England secondary. He’s always a threat to score in the red-zone, but I expect his target share to get close to double digits when looking at who’s suiting up alongside him.Photo by Bobby Ellis/Getty ImagesTE to keep an eye on in Week 5:George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers: Matchup:vs. CardinalsWeek 4 Stats: 6 Receptions, 125 YDS, 1 TD, 24.5 PTSAs much as I expected to see a major drop off in the effectiveness and confidence in the 49ers last week after losing Jimmy Garappolo for the season to a torn ACL, I was enlightened to see them come out swinging against the Chargers. They got out to an early lead in what many expected to be a tune-up game for Philip Rivers’ squad. Kittle was a major factor and he is currently leading the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards. He should be in for another good showing against the Cardinals.Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesTE I am hesitant about in Week 5:Rob Gronkowski, New England PatriotsMatchup: vs. ColtsWeek 4 Stats: 4 Receptions, 44 YDS, 8.4 PTSIf you have Rob Gronkowski, you are no-question starting him tonight, but there are major red flags. He hasn’t scored since the season opener. He has less than five receptions in three of the four games he’s been active in this season. On the flip side, the Colts have allowed the 7th most FPTS to tight ends this year. I’m not expecting much from him tonight and if New England goes way up in the first half, I wouldn’t count on Gronk playing in the second.Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesThursday Night Football Starts & Sits: Indianapolis Colts (1-3) vs. New England Patriots (2-2)Colts:Andrew Luck: StreamNyheim Hines: FlexJordan Wilkins: SitRyan Grant: FlexZach Pascal: Deep SleeperChester Rogers: SitEric Ebron: StartColts D/ST: Sit Adam Vinatieri: StartPatriots:Tom Brady: StartJames White: StartSony Michel: StartJulian Edelman: FlexJosh Gordon: SitRob Gronkowski: StartPatriots D/ST: StreamStephen Gostkowski: Start
