Chris Godwin (ACL) returns to training

Fantastic Impact: This is Chris Godwin’s first practice with the team since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in the Week 15 loss to the Saints last season. Godwin’s return so soon is a great sign for his fantasy value, as it likely means he could be ready to go when Week 1 rolls around. The former Penn State Nittany Lion was WR6 in the full PPR leagues before his 2021 season was cut short, so he’ll be looking to pick up where he left off. Godwin saw 9.1 targets per game, which was good enough for the 10th most in the NFL. The additions of Julio Jones and Russell Gage will be offset by the losses of Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski, so the target share shouldn’t decrease for the sixth-year pro. Godwin is currently drafted as a WR21, but his ADP will skyrocket if the team confirms he’ll be ready for the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

Rashod Bateman misses training

Fantastic Impact: Bateman taking time off from training appears to be purely a precautionary decision, with coach John Harbaugh saying the WR probably could have trained, but he also said it’s also possible he could be left out. training on Saturday. That being said, Bateman is clearly the No. 1 WR for the Ravens, so it’s no surprise they’re vigilant when it comes to his health. But, offshore’s status will certainly be one to watch day to day until he returns to full training. As far as fantasy goes, the second has the potential to be a high-end WR2 with immense upside as one of Lamar Jackson’s prime targets.
