Baltimore Ravens 2024 Projections: Scariest Rushing Attack in the League


2024 Ravens Projections

It's a Madden player's dream. Derrick Henry and Lamar Jackson are together in the same backfield. Projecting this team is easy—just one rushing yard for every mile from here to the sun. In reality, the team's playcalling and target share history mixed with each player's individual talent was used to create these 2024 Baltimore Ravens projections.


Major Additions and Losses

The Ravens had a solid offseason all things considered. They lost Odell Beckham Jr. but surely Rashod Bateman, Devontez Walker, or Nelson Agholor can pick up the slack. While not offensive, retaining Justin Madubuike is a big booster for the team and will help them remain a run-first, grind-it-out, style team.


The defense had an overhaul of the staff but added some serious firepower at corner. The offense still has the same major pieces and a shiny toy at running back. Derrick Henry has gravitational pull, and the efficiency of the rushing game and play action should be noticeable.



If this is what Ryan Tannehill can do on 4th & 2, stars save the rest of the NFL with Lamar back there.


Baltimore Ravens 2024 Quarterback Projections

It's not quite the MVP season Lamar had, but he's firmly a quarterback to target in fantasy football this year. Projecting a 9% TD% is malpractice, but his rushing production and passing efficiency will keep him competitive even without it.


He'll attempt 463 passes for 3472 yards and 23 touchdowns on a 65% completion rate. 23 passing touchdowns put him at a 4.9% TD%, which is more in line with his career averages than the nine. The real money is going to be made on the ground, where in 144 attempts he'll get 840 yards and eight touchdowns. He had a career-low as a starter last year, but with Henry back there he can return to 2021 form on the ground.



The pull Henry has is going to make plays like this regular. Other QBs will fill in for about a game's worth of snaps, whether due to injury or benching from an early lead. They'll grab 186 passing yards and an extra TD for the pass catchers.


Receiving Projections

Here come the career highs for Rashod Bateman. 18% target share across the whole season would set career highs in yardage, receptions, and touchdowns. Unfortunately, it still amounts to 603 yards on 53 receptions and won't help our fantasy teams.


Zay Flowers is the player to have here, with 123 targets for 85 receptions, 1,001 yards and seven touchdowns. He'll be comfortably a WR2 for fantasy teams, and is a value at ADP right now. Agholor and the other WRs/TEs not named Andrews or Likely will combine for just under 500 yards, and are best ball throw-in late in drafts.




The gravity Henry has won't just be seen in the run game, these Zay Flowers screen passes are going to hit different in 2024.


Mark Andrews is the most underrated tight end in dynasty right now. He'll continue to quietly produce (he had the most fantasy points per route run among tight ends last year) and 127 targets for 935 yards is extremely attainable. Isaiah Likely is the tight end handcuff of all handcuffs, but unless Andrews gets injured or they change their scheme, 33 targets for 310 yards is his median outcome.


Baltimore Ravens Rushing Projections


Derrick Henry to the moon. His efficiency dwindled behind the anemic Tennessee line, but he'll return to form with 310 carries for 1426 yards and 14 touchdowns. Heck, 14 might be too low for the king.


The other running backs on the roster will combine for 104 rushes for 437 yards and four touchdowns. The most talented backs on the roster other than Henry are Keaton Mitchell and Rasheen Ali, but with Mitchell's injury, Ali is likely the handcuff to have.


Baltimore Ravens 2024 Projections and Closing Thoughts

The rushing offense is going to be potent in Baltimore. Investing in the rushing game is a solid strategy in redraft right now, with each piece either appropriately valued or a little low in ADP. Derrick Henry, Mark Andrews, and Lamar Jackson are every-week starters, while Zay Flowers is a WR2 going for WR3 prices. Bateman truthers, I'm sorry, but even career highs don't look pretty for what was once a hopeful profile.
