Zay Flowers Won't Face Action From NFL

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers was allegedly involved in a domestic investigation in February, leading to uncertainty surrounding his status on the field in 2024. On Thursday, the NFL announced there was insufficient evidence that Flowers engaged in any activity that violated the league's personal conduct policy. That said, there will be no action taken by the NFL, and Flowers is free to participate in all team activities. The 23-year-old is on track to contribute in 2024 after a 77-catch, 858-yard, five-touchdown rookie campaign. Although he did a lot of his damage with Mark Andrews (ankle) out of action, the former Boston College star has plenty of ability and should push to compile WR2 numbers in his sophomore campaign.

Baltimore County Police Suspends Investigation Of Zay Flowers

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers was reportedly being investigated by Baltimore County Police for his alleged involvement in a domestic violence incident. However, the investigation has been suspended, and he will not face charges. It's unclear what the alleged incident was, but his availability for the organization is now unlikely to be affected. The 2023 first-round pick posted 77 catches on 108 targets for 858 yards and five touchdowns in his first season out of Boston College. He should remain a top-two target in Lamar Jackson's passing offense along with tight end Mark Andrews in 2024.

Zay Flowers Catches Four Passes In Playoff Win

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers faced a significant challenge in Saturday's Divisional Round game, shadowed by elite talent Derek Stingley Jr. for most of the match. The rookie first-round pick ended up catching four of his five targets for 41 yards in the team's 34-10 victory over Houston. After spending one half shadowed by Stingley and another half securing the win with the run, Flowers had limited opportunities to produce. Houston, recognizing the threat posed by Flowers, made efforts to neutralize him or, at the very least, slow him down. Baltimore will face either the Bills or Chiefs next week at M&T Bank Stadium, and both teams rank in the top 10 in DVOA against the pass while being stingy against receivers. However, the game script is likely to favor Flowers, as the game is expected to stay more competitive, preventing the ability to run the clock out for an entire quarter.

Zay Flowers Officially Good To Go For Divisional Round

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) was able to put in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday and has been removed from the final injury report this week. He is cleared to play on Saturday against the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round. The Ravens held Flowers out in a meaningless Week 18 regular season finale, and he's ready to rock for the team's first playoff game after having a bye in the wild-card round. Even if tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) comes off Injured Reserve to play for the first time since Week 11, Flowers should be heavily targeted by quarterback Lamar Jackson against a Texans defense that was much more friendly to opposing receivers to close out the regular season. In the regular season opener against Houston, the first-round wideout caught a season-high-tying nine of 10 targets for 78 yards. Flowers is a fine DFS target at his $6,000 DraftKings price tag.

Zay Flowers Says He's Ready To Go

Both Baltimore Ravens wide receivers Zay Flowers (calf) and Devin Duvernay (back) were full participants in practice on Wednesday. Flowers, who did not play in the Week 18 regular season finale as a precaution in a meaningless game, said he feels great and is ready to go for the Divisional Round of the playoffs this Saturday against the Houston Texans. The 23-year-old rookie was listed as limited on Tuesday's injury report and he probably could have played in Week 18 had it been a game that mattered. Flowers, who had a solid 77-858-5 line during the regular season on 108 targets, should operate as Baltimore's No. 1 receiver for quarterback Lamar Jackson, giving him plenty of DFS appeal in what could end up being a shootout against the upstart Texans. Duvernay will likely be more of a factor on special teams if he's activated from Injured Reserve to play on Saturday.

Zay Flowers Returns To Practice On Tuesday

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) returned to practice on Tuesday after sitting out all of the team's practices during the bye week. It's obviously great news for quarterback Lamar Jackson, as Flowers could be an X-factor in Baltimore's potential Super Bowl run. Flowers has been nursing a calf injury since the Week 17 win over the Miami Dolphins. The rookie led the team in targets (108), receptions (77), and receiving yards (858) this year and is set to face a Houston Texans defense that surrendered 258 receiving yards to Amari Cooper a few weeks ago. The team's official practice report later in the day will indicate whether he practiced in full or was limited, but either way, this is a great sign for his chances to suit up for Saturday's playoff game.

Zay Flowers Not Practicing To Begin Bye Week

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) is not participating in the first of three bye-week practices. The talented rookie did not play in the season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but other notable starters like Odell Beckham Jr. and Lamar Jackson were held out, too. He is dealing with a calf injury, so the team is likely to be careful with him during the week off. Flowers accumulated 108 targets, 77 receptions, 858 yards, and five touchdowns during his debut campaign. He'll likely rest up this week as the Ravens wait to see who they will face in the Divisional Round next weekend at home.

Zay Flowers Doubtful To Play In Week 18

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) didn't practice all week and is listed as doubtful to play on Saturday night in Week 18 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens have the top seed in the AFC and a first-round bye in the playoffs locked up, so they will be resting some players this weekend. In addition to Flowers on offense, quarterback Lamar Jackson, receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and right guard Kevin Zeitler (knee, quadriceps) won't play. Receiver Tylan Wallace (knee) is also questionable to play. Fantasy managers are going to have to ignore Flowers this week and will probably want to ignore Baltimore's offense entirely with quarterback Tyler Huntley making his first start of the year against a Steelers team still fighting for a playoff spot. With both OBJ and Flowers out, Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor will be the team's top two receivers in addition to tight end Isaiah Likely.

Zay Flowers Misses Another Practice

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) was held out of practice for the second straight day on Wednesday. Flowers played through his calf issue in the Week 17 beatdown of the Miami Dolphins and caught all three of his targets for 106 yards and a touchdown while playing a season-low 56 percent of the offensive snaps. The first-rounder can probably play through the injury in this weekend's regular season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, but with the Ravens having already locked up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, he's a candidate to be rested this weekend. Baltimore has already announced that star quarterback Lamar Jackson will not play in Week 18. If Flowers is held out, Odell Beckham Jr., Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor would see more opportunities with Tyler Huntley running the offense.

Zay Flowers Listed As DNP Tuesday

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report. Flowers missed two practices last week before returning to practice on Friday and playing in the Week 17 blowout win over the Miami Dolphins, where he did not look injured at all on his way to three catches for 106 yards and a touchdown. The 23-year-old wasn't believed to have suffered any kind of setback with his calf last Sunday, so he should return to practice later this week and be ready to play in Week 18 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday. However, now that the Ravens have locked up the No. 1 seed in the AFC and a first-round bye in the playoffs, there's no telling who they might be looking to rest in a meaningless game for them in Week 18.

Zay Flowers Gets Loose For First 100-Yard Day

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers satisfied his fantasy managers on just one play in Week 17's 56-19 rout of the Miami Dolphins, sprinting deep down the field for a 75-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Flowers closed with three receptions for a career-high 106 yards, so it could have been an entirely different scenario had he not beaten Miami's banged-up secondary for a house call. All told, however, the 23-year-old rookie first-rounder put a bow on a successful campaign despite some expected ups and downs. Flowers' regular season may be finished, since the Ravens nabbed the No. 1 seed in the AFC with Sunday's win. Depending on Mark Andrews' (ankle) availability, MVP candidate Lamar Jackson is likely going to rely on Flowers as the top target in Baltimore's passing game during at least the early portion of the postseason.

Zay Flowers Active In Week 17

As expected, Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) is officially active to face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday in a big matchup in the AFC in Week 17. Flowers will suit up for this one, but there's a chance that the 23-year-old first-round wideout could have his snaps limited, making him a little extra risky in starting fantasy lineups with championships on the line. In the impressive Monday night beatdown of the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16, Flowers showed out, catching nine of a season-high 13 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown. Despite the fact that he may not be 100 percent in this one, fantasy managers would be hard-pressed to bench the Ravens' leading receiver in a game that should be high-scoring. Flowers is on the WR2/3 borderline.

Zay Flowers Expected To Play In Week 17

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) is currently listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 17 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Despite the questionable tag, Flowers is expected to suit up for this game. The young wideout missed the first two practices of the week before returning to the field on Friday. It doesn't sound like Flowers is going to be 100 percent healthy, but he should still be able to contribute. Fantasy managers will have to check back ahead of game-time for another update on his status. Barring any setbacks, Flowers should be out there this weekend.

Zay Flowers Questionable For Week 17

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) was limited in practice on Friday and is listed as questionable to suit up on Sunday to face the Miami Dolphins in Week 17 action. The good news is that the first-rounder was able to practice at all on Friday after skipping practice sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. In the event that Flowers doesn't play on Sunday, receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor, and tight end Isaiah Likely would be in line for more targets in the passing attack. The 23-year-old Flowers has been Baltimore's leading receiver this year with tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) going down with a season-ending injury, so his absence would be bad news for quarterback Lamar Jackson in this high-profile matchup. Flowers should be considered on the WR2/3 borderline if he plays. Check back on Flowers' status on Sunday morning 90 minutes before kickoff.

Zay Flowers Misses Second Practice This Week

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) did not practice on Thursday, making it the second consecutive practice missed due to his calf injury. In Week 16, the rookie had an impressive showing, catching nine of 13 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers. Flowers has emerged as Lamar Jackson's preferred target at wide receiver, leading the team with a 24.6% target share and 752 receiving yards on the season. The Ravens have one more practice this week to gauge Flowers' readiness for a critical Week 17 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. If he can't go then Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashod Bateman will see more targets than usual.

Zay Flowers Listed As DNP For Walkthrough

The Baltimore Ravens listed rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) as a limited participant for their walkthrough practice on Wednesday. The Ravens took it easy on Wednesday after beating the San Francisco 49ers handily on Monday night. If the 23-year-old is able to return to practice on Thursday, he should have a pretty good shot at playing in another big game this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Flowers caught nine of his season-high 13 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown against the Niners and has now hauled in 21 of his 33 targets for 164 yards and three touchdowns in the last four games. In a game that should feature plenty of points in Week 17, Flowers deserves to be started by fantasy managers with everything on the line if he's active. If he doesn't play on Sunday, Odell Beckham Jr. and Nelson Agholor would see more targets, as well as tight end Isaiah Likely.

Zay Flowers Scores On Christmas In Big Win

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers found pay dirt again for his fifth touchdown of his career in the 33-19 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted 13 times in this game and caught nine of them for 72 yards and a touchdown. Right after the defense forced a turnover, Flowers got open in the back of the end zone for a nine-yard score in the third quarter which gave the Ravens an 18-point lead. The rookie continues to get all sorts of targets both underneath and over top of the defense. His role will likely continue in Week 17 when the Ravens host the Miami Dolphins to see who will get the number-one seed in the AFC.

Zay Flowers Officially Active On Monday Night

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers (foot) is officially active ahead of Monday's showdown with the San Francisco 49ers. The wideout carried a questionable tag heading into this contest. However, he practiced fully on Friday and Saturday, so there was little doubt concerning his availability. At any rate, Flowers has had an adequate rookie campaign, amassing 65 catches for 680 yards. He also has three touchdowns, with two occurring in the last three games. As a result, Flowers should at least remain in the flex conversation despite a challenging matchup on tap.

Dec 25, 2023 7:03 PM EST

Zay Flowers Gets In Full Practice Session

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers (foot) was a full participant during Friday's practice session. The young wideout reportedly injured his foot during last week's game. That resulted in him being limited to start the week, but is back to being a full participant in practice. Right now, Flowers appears to be on track to suit up against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. Flowers is looking to bounce back after his disappointing outing last week. He'll have some WR3 appeal in PPR formats for this upcoming matchup.

Dec 22, 2023 10:04 PM EST

Zay Flowers Limited Thursday With Foot Injury

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers (foot) was limited in the team's practice on Thursday for their first practice of the week. Flowers injured his foot at the very end of Sunday night's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the Ravens aren't concerned that the injury is serious or that it will keep him from playing on Christmas night in a potential Super Bowl preview against the San Francisco 49ers. The matchup isn't the greatest one for the first-rounder, but Flowers is still probably the best bet for fantasy production from Baltimore's group of wideouts and should be considered a high-end WR3/low-end WR2 for fantasy purposes in Week 16. We'd certainly expect him to bounce back from his one-catch, seven-yard performance in Week 15, and don't forget he's scored twice in the last three games.
