Lardarius Webb: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Webb was a full practice participant throughout the week, making his questionable status a bit of a surprise. He did miss the entire preseason, so while he's more likely to play than not, Webb shouldn't be considered a sure thing. In the event that he's unable to play or somewhat limited, it isn't entirely clear which Baltimore corner would account for Webb's snaps. Asa Jackson and Chykie Brown are the leading candidates, with Jackson currently projected as the team's nickelback. IDP owners should probably look elsewhere this week, as Webb is always a solid candidate for pass defenses and interceptions, but isn't particularly consistent when it comes to tackles.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Webb only played in sx games last season for the Ravens, and will look to bounce back from an ACL injury that ended his 2012 season. Webb and the Ravens' defense lost many key pieces, but added other high profile free agents this offseason as replacements. Webb is a surprisingly good run-stopper for his size, so he could be a solid IDP option in leagues that differentiate between safeties and cornerbacks.
Webb picked off five passes during the 2011 season, and then grabbed three more in two playoff games. He also went the entire season without giving up a touchdown pass. This year you can expect quarterbacks to target the other members of Baltimore's secondary, although Webb is a good tackler despite his stature, so he could still rack up some tackles.
Webb should see the field in nickel and dime packages, and if injuries are a concern again he will be one of the first in line to start. He should factor heavily into the return game as well.
Webb may not even be ready to play to start the season after an ACL tear in December landed him on Injured Reserve. He'll need time to get up to full speed before he can be counted on as a nickel back and return man again.
Webb likely won't see much of the field considering his rookie status and the Ravens' depth in the secondary. He has speed to burn, however, and is a potential kick return candidate.
