Player Outlook
Mitchell could eventually emerge as the No. 2 running back in Baltimore this season behind Derrick Henry, but it might take some time. Mitchell is coming off a torn ACL in December, and coach John Harbaugh said Mitchell isn't expected to be ready until "sometime during the season." Unless Mitchell surprises us in training camp, he shouldn't be drafted until one of your last picks in the majority of leagues. And once he's healthy, Mitchell might have to compete with Justice Hill for the backup role. If Henry stays healthy all season, the No. 2 role for the Ravens will be irrelevant. However, a Henry injury could allow for Mitchell to have plenty of Fantasy value. He emerged for the Ravens in Week 9 in 2023 with 20.4 PPR points, and he scored at least 10.8 PPR points in four of six games before getting hurt. He's explosive, but we might not see the best of Mitchell again until 2025. He's a good stash candidate if your league has IR spots.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Starting camp on PUP list

    The Ravens placed Mitchell (knee) on the PUP list Monday, Ryan Mink of the team's official site reports. Mitchell, who is working his way back from a left ACL tear suffered last December, will unsurprisingly have to begin training camp on the PUP list. He can be moved to the active roster at any time during training camp and the preseason, once he's ready to practice, but if he remains sidelined by the time Week 1 rolls around, Mitchell will need to be moved to the reserve/PUP list and thus miss a minimum of four games to start the season. The undersized speedster is competing for a role behind Derrick Henry out of the backfield.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Won't be ready for training camp

    Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Mitchell (knee) won't be ready for the start of training camp but is "on schedule" in his recovery from an ACL tear sustained Week 15 last season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Harbaugh said Mitchell isn't expected to be ready until "sometime during the season." That's unsurprising given the timing of Mitchell's injury, but fantasy managers should brace for the eventuality that the second-year back isn't available Week 1, or at least not at full strength. Derrick Henry will work as Baltimore's clear No. 1 backfield option, but given that he's 30 years old, the team could want to keep him from the sort of league-leading workload he's handled in the past. If Henry ends up headlining a committee rather than serving as a true workhorse, more opportunities could be available to Mitchell, once healthy. At least to begin the regular season, Justice Hill and rookie fifth-round pick Rasheen Ali (biceps) may serve as the primary complementary options to Henry.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Looks set to back up Henry

    Mitchell (knee) appears poised to work in a complementary role in the Baltimore backfield in 2024 after Derrick Henry agreed to a two-year contract with the Ravens on Tuesday, Brian Wacker of The Baltimore Sun reports. Mitchell and Justice Hill now become the top backups to Henry, a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time NFL rushing leader, while J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) appears set to leave Baltimore in free agency and Gus Edwards is slated to join the Chargers. Both Mitchell and Hill boast speed and pass-catching chops, making them worthy complements to Henry's overpowering rushing style, though Hill has the benefit of not needing to work his way back from an ACL tear. General manager Eric DeCosta said in February that he's confident Mitchell will work his way back from injury and contribute during the 2024 season, according to Jonas Shaffer of TheBaltimoreBanner.com, but the timing of Mitchell's injury -- which he suffered in December -- makes his availability for Week 1 uncertain. Mitchell showcased elusiveness and big-play potential in limited action as a rookie, so if he can avoid losing his quick-twitch ability in the rehab process, he could prove to be a valuable contributor behind Henry, when healthy.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Moves to injured reserve

    The Ravens placed Mitchell (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Clifton Brown of the team's official site reports. The move is merely procedural after the Ravens confirmed Monday that Mitchell sustained a torn ACL in his left knee this past Sunday at Jacksonville. With Mitchell's season over and J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) also on IR, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will handle most of the backfield reps moving forward, though Melvin Gordon was signed off the practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Carted off in Jacksonville

    Mitchell was carted to the locker room shortly after being carried into the blue medical tent by staffers in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Banner reports. Mitchell went down grabbing his leg near the knee at the conclusion of a 13-yard run in the fourth quarter. He had nine carries for 73 yards and caught both of his targets for 15 yards prior to the injury. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill are the top remaining options in Baltimore's backfield with Mitchell hurt.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Sleeper RBs

    It's tough to fully trust Mitchell since the Ravens haven't turned the backfield over to him yet, but you can see the upside every time he touches the ball. He had 10 total touches in Week 14 against the Rams and averaged 6.0 yards per carry. He was at 7.1 yards per carry in Week 12 at the Chargers, and he's shown the ability to score from anywhere on the field. This could be a great week to get Mitchell involved in the passing game since the Jaguars are No. 1 in most receptions allowed to running backs. And eight running backs have scored at least 13.2 PPR points against Jacksonville this season. I like Mitchell as a flex in all leagues.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Sleeper RBs

    Mitchell will hopefully continue to get more playing time for the Ravens following their bye in Week 13, and he's scored at least 10.9 PPR points in three of his past four games. In Week 12 at the Chargers, Mitchell handled 11 total touches (two catches for 25 yards on two targets), and he averaged 7.1 yards per carry. He has the ability to change the game with one play, but unfortunately, he shares playing time with Gus Edwards and Justice Hill. I would still use Mitchell as a flex option against the Rams this week, and hopefully the Ravens give one of their best playmakers more touches as the season goes on.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Role continues to expand

    Mitchell carried the ball nine times for 64 yards in Sunday's 20-10 win over the Chargers. He added two catches on two targets for 25 yards. Mitchell drew the first carry of the game for the Ravens and ultimately led the backfield with 11 touches. As has been the case, he was explosive with the ball in his hands, as his longest rush went for 29 yards, and he also chipped in with a 14-yard reception. Mitchell saw double-digit carries for the second time in his last four games and should continue to see his role expand once the Ravens return from their bye in Week 14.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Sleeper RBs

    Gus Edwards has the best chance to take advantage of this Chargers defense, but I like Mitchell as a sleeper for this week as a flex option in all leagues. The Chargers are No. 7 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs, and in Week 10 they allowed both Detroit running backs in Jahmyr Gibbs and David Montgomery to each score at least 17.6 PPR points. Mitchell still hasn't had more than 10 total touches in a game this season, but he's scored at least 13.6 PPR points in two of his past three outings. He can help your Fantasy team win a week with one big play against this defense.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Sneaky Sleeper (Lineup Decisions)

    It would make a ton of sense for the Ravens to lean on Mitchell in a crucial division game -- the Bengals are on the road on a short week, they're coming off a game they were pulverized on the ground in, and Mitchell has relatively fresh legs. But there are certain situations like near the goal line and on passing downs where Mitchell simply cannot be expected to play. That limits the expectation on his volume, but he has the speed to do some damage even if he has 7 to 10 touches. He's tough to trust as a must-start running back, but in deeper leagues he's a flex with higher upside than D'Onta Foreman (with Khalil Herbert expected back for the Bears), Kareem Hunt (tough matchup in a downgraded offense), Jahan Dotson, Odell Beckham or Luke Musgrave.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Role could grow in Week 11

    Head coach John Harbaugh said Mitchell will be "more involved this week" during the Ravens' matchup with the Bengals on Thursday than he was in a Week 10 loss to the Browns, Brian Wacker of The Baltimore Sun reports. After Mitchell turned in a nine-carry, 138-yard rushing performance in a blowout win over Seattle in Week 9, Harbaugh spoke of expanding the rookie's role in the backfield rotation alongside Gus Edwards and Justice Hill. The coach held true to that promise early in Sunday's 33-31 loss to Cleveland, and Mitchell came through with an electrifying 39-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, then helped set up a field goal on the next possession with a 32-yard catch and run. However, the rookie was then curiously phased out of the game plan in the second half, as he played only four snaps and received just one touch as the Browns overcame a 24-9 deficit. Harbaugh's latest comments offer hope that Mitchell could cut further into Hill's workload, but Edwards seems firmly rooted in place as the No. 1 option.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Expected to suit up Sunday

    Mitchell (hamstring), who is officially listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday versus the Browns, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Mitchell practiced in full Friday after tweaking his hamstring in practice earlier in the week, and he's on track to suit up for Sunday's divisional matchup. The rookie's status will be made official roughly 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1:00 p.m. kickoff. Mitchell put up a 9-138-1 statline on the ground versus Seattle in Week 9, but he did so on only 13 offensive snaps. If active Sunday, it remains to be seen whether he'll be put in position to handle more playing time alongside Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Trending toward playing

    Mitchell (hamstring) is expected to play in Sunday's matchup against the Browns, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. That the 21-year-old practiced fully Friday was likely a positive indication anyway, but this is a great development regardless for the rookie's availability. It's worth noting the Ravens haven't made an official designation regarding his status, but that should be officially cleared up before the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. The speedy running back has been electric in his first real opportunities after missing the beginning of the season due to a shoulder injury, but he played only 13 offensive snaps total in the demolition of the Seahawks in Week 9. It's unclear if the playing time will dramatically rise in what figures to be a much more competitive contest.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Nursing hamstring injury

    Mitchell was a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to a hamstring injury. Mitchell wasn't included on the Ravens' initial Week 10 injury report released Wednesday, so his limitations in Thursday's session seem to be indicative of an in-practice setback. The rookie out of East Carolina will still have a chance to practice again in some capacity Friday to put himself in a better position to play Sunday against the Browns, but the mid-week appearance on the injury report suddenly halts some of the momentum Mitchell had built over the past week. Head coach John Harbaugh had previously suggested that Mitchell would become a regular part of the backfield rotation with Gus Edwards and Justice Hill after busting out for 138 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in the Ravens' blowout win over the Seahawks this past Sunday.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Could be part of backfield rotation

    Ravens head coach John Harbaugh suggested Monday that Mitchell could be in line for an uptick in snaps moving forward as part of a three-man committee with Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, Jonas Shaffer of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports. "I'm sure there'll be a rotation," Harbaugh said. Though Harbaugh didn't go into specifics regarding what Mitchell's role might look like in the weeks to come, the undrafted rookie out of East Carolina may have earned himself a regular share of the backfield snaps and touches after a breakout performance in this past Sunday's 37-3 win over Seattle. After recording no carries in his first two NFL games, Mitchell gained 11, nine, nine and eight yards on four totes in the second quarter, then added a 40-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and a 60-yard scamper in the fourth. Given that Mitchell's 138 rushing yards didn't come purely in garbage time, he may have a good chance at usurping Hill for the top change-of-pace role behind Edwards, who should remain Baltimore's preferred early-down and goal-line back. Hill actually led the trio of backs with 13 carries (for 40 yards) against Seattle, though six of those touches came in the fourth quarter. Moreover, Hill is averaging a more modest 4.3 yards per carry and 4.5 yards per reception this season, while Mitchell has flashed more big-play upside, albeit in a smaller sample. Mitchell doesn't look to be a dependable option in fantasy lineups at this time, but he profiles as an intriguing speculative pickup in the event he pushes into a larger role on the heels of his big Week 9 outing.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: No injury designation for Week 9

    Mitchell (hamstring) has no injury designation for Week 9 and will play in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. The rookie has played two offensive snaps all season, registering zero rushing attempts while catching his lone target for nine yards. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill should continue to handle the backfield work for Baltimore.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Unavailable Sunday

    Mitchell (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game with the Cardinals. Mitchell will be forced to sit out after he suffered a hamstring strain in Week 7 versus the Lions. The running back was able to practice in full Friday, but he'll now shift his focus to returning in Week 9 against Seattle.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Chance to play Sunday

    Mitchell (hamstring) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Cordell Woodland of 105.7 The Fan reports. The 21-year-old running back out of East Carolina seems to be trending in the right direction to play this Sunday, as he went from limited participation in Thursday's practice to a full workload Friday. Mitchell has appeared in two games for the Ravens since coming off injured reserve, playing primarily on special teams (52 percent of snaps).

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: No practice Wednesday

    Mitchell (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Mitchell received his first regular-season snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Lions, but he injured his hamstring along the way and now is considered week-to-week. He's unlikely to practice this week or play in Sunday's game at Arizona.

  • Ravens' Keaton Mitchell: Questionable to return

    Mitchell exited Sunday's game against the Lions with a hamstring injury. Mitchell did not play an offensive snap during his season debut last week against Tennessee. The undrafted rookie did log the first carry of his NFL career for nine yards during Sunday's contest, though it appears he sustained some sort of hamstring injury during the second half. With Baltimore up by more than four scores in the fourth quarter, it's unlikely that Mitchell will return even if he is able to overcome this hamstring injury. If he does not return, his next chance to play would come Sunday, Oct. 29 versus Arizona.
