Aiken finished the 2016 season with 29 catches on 50 targets, racking up 328 yards (11.3 YPR) and one touchdown in the process.

EDGE Analysis

Aiken entered the year as a trendy sleeper candidate following a strong 2015 campaign when he produced 75 receptions for 944 yards and five touchdowns. However, his high production in 2015 was at least partially a function of the Ravens' serious attrition at wide receiver with both Steve Smith Sr. and Breshad Perriman suffering season-ending injuries at different points of the year. The Ravens had a full complement of receivers this year with Smith and Perriman both healthy and the addition of Mike Wallace. With that, Aiken got lost in the shuffle and saw his target and snap counts plummet. Even with Smith officially retired, it appears unlikely the impending unrestricted free agent, Aiken, will be back in Baltimore in 2017. Depending on where he lands, Aiken has shown that he can be a competent No.2 or No.3 in an NFL offense when given the opportunity.

Aiken was held without a catch on two targets in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Aiken was entrenched in a minor role in the offense again Sunday as he saw just two targets on the 33 offensive snaps he played. Although Aiken's snap count has remained reasonably consistent over the second half of the season, even with Breshad Perriman's ascension, his target volume has taken a significant dip. Aside from a four-game stretch in October in which he saw just under 5.0 targets per game, Aiken has averaged just 2.54 targets per game in his 11 other outings. He'll face the Bengals on the road in Sunday's season finale.

Aiken caught both of his targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Although he was lightly used Sunday with just two targets, Aiken made the most of his opportunities Sunday as he reeled in his first touchdown of the season. His five-yard touchdown grab marked just his third target inside the red zone this season and his second target inside the 10 yard line. Aiken does appear to be locked in as Baltimore's No.3 receiver over Breshad Perriman, but his low target volume coupled with his lack of explosiveness puts a definite cap on his upside. Furthermore, Baltimore tends to run the ball in the red zone or look towards the likes of Steve Smith or Mike Wallace, which limits Aiken's scoring chances.

Aiken caught one of four targets for 10 yards in Monday's loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Monday was yet another quiet outing for Aiken as he only saw four of quarterback Joe Flacco's 52 pass attempts thrown his way. He was only able to corral one of those targets, which went for a 10-yard pickup to give the Ravens a fresh set of downs. He's up to 25 catches on the season and he's on pace to play half as many snaps as he saw all of last season, making him a non-entity in most formats.

Aiken caught all three of his targets for 41 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

A thigh injury had Aiken listed on the injury report leading into Sunday, but he was able to play through it and he caught everything thrown his way. Unfortunately, Aiken was targeted on just three of Baltimore's 50 passing plays while the likes of Dennis Pitta, Mike Wallace, and Steve Smith all saw seven or more targets. In fact, Aiken has only seen five or more targets just once in the five games the Ravens have played since their bye week. Aiken and the Ravens will head up to Foxborough for a Monday night clash with the Patriots in Week 14.

Aiken (thigh) is active for Sunday's game against Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Although Aiken will be active, the wideout has seen just 13 combined targets over four games since the bye week, and is continuing to lose snaps to Breshad Perriman on the outside. Having been held out of the endzone all season and never seeing more than six targets in a single game, Aiken doesn't offer much fantasy upside in Week 13.

Aiken (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being able to log full practices Thursday and Friday, Aiken is still present on the injury report heading into the weekend due to a thigh issue. Aiken has already begun losing some snaps to second-year receiver Breshad Perriman, and that trend could continue Sunday if Aiken is still hampered. In any case, Aiken is unlikely to see much more than half of the offensive snaps Sunday as Baltimore's No.3 option on the outside.

Aiken (thigh) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Aiken is thus on track to play Sunday against the Dolphins, though his fantasy value remains modest at this stage, as long as both Mike Wallace and Steve Smith are healthy enough to play. In Week 12, Aiken turned his 35 snaps on offense (out of a possible 68) into two catches for 30 yards, bringing his season-long stat line to 21/236/0 over 11 contests.

Aiken (thigh) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With 21 catches for 236 yards in 11 games to date, Aiken's fantasy value remains modest, especially as long as both Mike Wallace and Steve Smith are healthy enough to play.

Aiken caught both of his targets for 30 yards in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Although he was able to catch both passes thrown his way, it was still a rather muted outing for Aiken. He's only seen five or more targets in a game three times this season despite playing in an offense that is third in the NFL in terms of pass attempts. Aiken is a reasonably reliable third receiver, but most of his work comes on short and intermediate routes while Mike Wallace, Steve Smith, and now Breshad Perriman see most of the downfield targets. He remains without a touchdown on 21 receptions this season, which is a frustrating dropoff from his 2015 campaign when he reached paydirt five times. His lack of volume inhibits his value in PPR formats and his lack of big play potential makes him difficult to roster in standard formats.
