Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett is likely to see another substantial workload, as offensive coordinator Marc Trestman is a big believer in the running game, and the team will maintain the same zone blocking system they had last year under former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.
Fantasy Tip: Trestman also likes to use screen passes and throws to running backs out of the backfield, so Forsett could be a huge addition for fantasy owners in points per reception (PPR) leagues. He had 44 catches last season. Under Trestman in Chicago, Matt Forte had 102 receptions, so keep that in mind on draft day.

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore has bulked up to 275 pounds during the offseason, but has maintained his speed. He is considered the favorite to start. While his strength is blocking, he has good hands, too.
Fantasy Tip: Gillmore will have rookie Maxx Williams breathing down his neck for touches in the passing game, but to start Gillmore should be the primary option. He isn't quite Top 15 at his position in terms of fantasy appeal, so he'll go mostly undrafted in standard leagues. However, he could emerge as a bye-week replacement or waiver wire add if he gets off to a good start.

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken worked consistently with the first-team offense throughout minicamps and organized team activities (OTAs). He is trying to hold off WRs Marlon Brown and Breshad Perriman for the starting job opposite WR Steve Smith Sr.
Fantasy Tip: Aiken still has a lot of work to do if he is to win a prominent role, but he appears to have a leg up for now. Watch him in training camp and the preseason before considering him for a spot as a WR3/4 or flex fantasy option in standard formats.

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman struggled with dropping routine passes in offseason workouts while making difficult grabs. He needs to become more consistent if he is to edge out WRs Kamar Aiken and Marlon Brown for a starting job.
Fantasy Tip: Perriman has good size which intrigues the team. He might not be a fantasy option off the bat, but down the stretch he could emerge as a useful WR3/4 or flex fantasy option.

Fantasy Tip: The starting tight end job is looking more and more like it's Crockett Gillmore's to lose. If Pitta opens the season on the PUP list, he'll be forced to miss at least the first six games of the season. Gillmore should be taken as a TE2 with Maxx Williams also in the mix.

Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Campanaro said he's feeling confident heading into training camp because he's in good health. Campanaro said it was hard missing six games due to a nagging thigh injury last year, but that he just needs to trust his talent and go out and play this year.

Fantasy Tip: Perriman will still need to beat out the likes of Marlon Brown and Kamar Aiken during training camp and preseason in order to win the No. 2 job behind Smith. Even if Perriman doesn't win the gig, he should still be used frequently in the Ravens' offense. Feel free to draft him as your fourth wide receiver.

Fantasy Tip: There was no disclosure of the injury or its extent, so this will be a situation to monitor throughout training camp and the preseason. Allen is expected to compete with Lorenzo Taliaferro for the backup running back spot behind Justin Forsett.
