Ricard (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Analysis: Ricard opened the week as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to the knee issue, but he put in full workouts Thursday and Friday. As such, Ricard likely won't face any restrictions in the Week 16 matchup. The fullback/defensive lineman saw his most involvement in the passing game of the season in last week's win over the Jaguars, hauling in two of three targets for 10 yards.
Ricard caught two of three targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 40-14 win over Jacksonville.
Analysis: The three targets set a season high, as the 26-year-old has the ball in his hands. Ricard has played at least 50 percent of the offensive snaps in each of the past three games and should continue to mostly operate as a blocker.
Ricard secured both of his targets for 11 yards during Tuesday's 34-17 win over the Cowboys.
Analysis: Ricard came off the COVID-19 list just one day prior to Tuesday's contest, but he ended up handling a season-high 55 percent of offensive snaps. Most of the fullback's workload came as a blocker, of course, but his two catches also tied a season-best mark.
Ricard was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.
Analysis: Ricard will be available for Tuesday's game against the Cowboys. He plays a ton on offense, often logging more than 25 percent of the snaps, but the fullback rarely touches the ball.
Ricard was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.
Analysis: The outbreak in Baltimore continues. Ricard has either tested positive for the virus or was in close contact with an infected person. Regardless, he won't be available for Week 12 and will need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities. The Ravens don't have another fullback on their roster.
Ricard signed a two-year contract extension with the Ravens on Tuesday, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Analysis: Ricard plays a key role in Baltimore as a fullback and depth defensive lineman. He's proven a versatile offensive weapon this season, performing well as both a blocker and pass catcher, so it's not much of a surprise to see Baltimore opting to lock him up through 2021. However, Ricard doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration.
Ricard caught all three of his targets for a season-high 27 yards while playing 29 of the Ravens' 72 offensive snaps (40 percent) in Sunday's 41-7 win over the Texans.
Analysis: As usual, Ricard saw snaps in all three phases of the game, but he didn't record any defensive statistics during his 12 plays on that side of the ball. Instead, he made his biggest impact as a fullback, finishing third on the team in receiving yards on the day while also bulldozing open lanes for the Ravens' ballcarriers, who racked up 263 yards on the ground. Ricard typically sees more tepid involvement as a pass catcher, so don't expect him to see enhanced involvement in the game plan in the weeks to come.
Ricard (back) is officially listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Ricard appears to have fully recovered from his back injury. The 25-year-old will draw his usual start at fullback and provide the Ravens with depth along the defensive line in Kansas City.
Ricard (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Ricard was a full participant in Friday's practice, which bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday. If he's able to go, the 25-year-old will play his usual role as a fullback and defensive lineman for Baltimore.
Ricard (undisclosed) is officially active for Sunday's tilt against the Dolphins.
Analysis: Ricard was dinged up leading up to Sunday, but as evidenced by this news, is all set for the regular season opener. It's likely that the 25-year-old will serve his usual dual-role as a fullback and defensive lineman for the Ravens in Week 1.
