2024 Fantasy Outlook
The good news for Bateman is that he stayed healthy for most of the 2023 season, after missing 16 games over his first two years in the league. The bad news is that averaged 2.0 catches and 22.9 yards per game, mostly working as Baltimore's third or fourth wide receiver. The Ravens apparently expect more of the 2021 first-round pick in 2024, with coach John Harbaugh referring to Bateman as a starter in February and the team then signing him to a two-year extension in April. He may be more explosive this year after last offseason was devoted to rehab from Lisfranc surgery, but target volume remains a significant issue with the Ravens sure to prioritize WR Zay Flowers and TE Mark Andrews as the top passing-game targets in an offense that always ranks near the top of the league in pass attempts. While Bateman may well take a step forward, he's unlikely to see enough volume to make noise in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks

Bateman turned in an impressive effort during Monday's training camp practice, according to Ryan Mink and Matt Ryan of the Ravens' official site.
ANALYSIS
Per the report, Bateman recorded a catch Monday while falling to his back, grabbing the ball off his shoelaces in the process. Additionally, the wideout made a few more solid catches during the session, while dealing with rainy conditions. The 2021 first-rounder drew the praise of head coach John Harbaugh, who noted that he is "expected to be a top receiver in the league for us." As the coming season approaches, Bateman could be poised for a breakout campaign while working as one of Lamar Jackson's top targets alongside 2023 first-rounder Zay Flowers.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
2021
Bateman has shown flashes since going 27th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, but he missed the first five games of his rookie year on the heels of summer abdominal surgery and then missed the final 11 weeks of 2022 with a Lisfranc injury. He started well last year before the foot became a factor, catching eight of 16 targets for 226 yards and two TDs the first three weeks, buoyed by a pair of distance scores. He's only 23, but there's suddenly a lot more target competition after the Ravens signed Odell Beckham and drafted Zay Flowers in the first round. The switch from Greg Roman to Todd Monken at offensive coordinator promises a more pass-oriented offense, at least, giving Bateman some potential for a third-year breakout if he finally stays healthy. He averaged nearly 100 yards per game his final two seasons at Minnesota and ran a 4.39 40 at the 2021 combine, so the Ravens still seem to believe in his potential -- at least to a degree -- even after a pair of disappointing seasons.
Bateman's chances for rookie-year stardom took a hit last April when he landed in Baltimore, home of Mark Andrews, Marquise Brown and the NFL's top rushing attack. The 27th overall pick projected as Option C in the passing game, which he eventually became, but only after missing the first five weeks of the season to rehab from core muscle surgery. Bateman played every game after that, and ultimately had respectable averages (3.8 catches for 42.9 yards on 5.7 targets) despite seeing less than half his passes from Lamar Jackson. The outlook for Year 2 is much better, with Brown shipped to Arizona and both Bateman and Jackson healthy for summer practices. Andrews and Bateman now stand as the top pass catchers, with Baltimore presumably hoping the latter can become more of a downfield threat after seeing two-thirds of his targets within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage last year. The 22-year-old ran a 4.39 40 last spring, and he averaged 20.3 yards per catch during his huge sophomore year at Minnesota (career 16.3 YPC). Now the presumed leader of one of the NFL's youngest WR groups, Bateman doesn't lack for opportunity.
Drafted 27th overall out of Minnesota, Bateman should provide a boost for the Ravens' below-average receiving corps. Marquise Brown is as fast as advertised, but too slight for a big workload, and newly signed Sammy Watkins has had trouble staying healthy most of his career. Of course, tight end Mark Andrews is still Lamar Jackson's favorite target, and the Ravens' passing attack is likely to be among the lower-volume ones in the league as the run-first offense has a three-headed attack in Jackson, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. At 6-0, 190, Bateman has only average size - and in fact is on the slight side - but good speed (4.43 40), above-average athleticism (36-inch vertical, 123-inch broad jump) and excellent route-running and footwork. Unfortunately, he may be unavailable for the early part of the season, recovering from core muscle surgery in mid-August with an estimated recovery timeline of 6-8 weeks. It's a setback, to be sure, but Bateman should still be available for more than half of his rookie campaign.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Heavy scrutiny entering camp
WRBaltimore Ravens
July 20, 2024
After signing a two-year extension with the Ravens in April, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic believes that 2024 could be the long-awaited breakout season for Bateman.
ANALYSIS
After struggling to stay on the field over his first two years in the league due to injuries, Bateman was healthier in 2023, playing 16 regular-season games and finishing with 32 catches on 56 targets for 367 yards and one touchdown. The Ravens inked the 2021 first-round pick to an extension despite Bateman being rumored to be on the trading block, and Zrebiec relays that Bateman's goals for training camp are to stay healthy and work on his chemistry with quarterback Lamar Jackson. Bateman is currently slated as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Zay Flowers and ahead of veteran Nelson Agholor and 2024 fourth-round pick Devontez Walker.
