Griffin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 tilt against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

With Joe Flacco (hip) back in uniform as Lamar Jackson's backup in Week 15, Griffin bumps back down to the inactive status he frequently was saddled with before Flacco's recent four-game absence.

Griffin will serve as the Ravens' No. 3 quarterback during Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin returns to the No. 3 role on Baltimore's depth chart, with Joe Flacco (hip) back to full health and slotting in as the No. 2 option behind rookie Lamar Jackson. The veteran played 21 offensive snaps across three games as Jackson's backup, completing two-of-six pass attempts for 21 yards. Griffin no longer holds fantasy appeal as a handcuff, and is not worth roster consideration in most formats.

Griffin is on track to fill the No. 2 quarterback role for the Ravens on Sunday against the Bengals with Lamar Jackson expected to start for the injured Joe Flacco (hip), Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Jackson is slated to receive the majority of the snaps under center in his first NFL start, which differs from an earlier report that suggested the rookie and Griffin might split the work in more equitable fashion. It's still expected that Griffin will see the field in some capacity for the first time since 2016, as he was out of football in 2017 and has been inactive through the Ravens' first nine games this season. Barring an in-game injury to any of the starting quarterbacks around the league in Sunday's action, Griffin and the Saints' Taysom Hill still appear to be two of the likelier backup signal-callers to accrue statistics in Week 11. With six teams on bye and options likely limited in two-QB leagues, that's enough to make Griffin someone worth considering for fantasy players who don't have two starting quarterbacks available for lineups this week.

Griffin practiced with the Ravens' starters at Thursday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Joe Flacco's (hip) availability for Sunday's game against the Bengals in question, coach John Harbaugh relayed earlier in the week that both Griffin and Lamar Jackson would be candidates to start if Flacco can't play. Considering Jackson has dressed as the No. 2 signal-caller throughout the season, he seemingly represents the likelier option of the two if a replacement is needed, but the rookie was unable to get in any work at Thursday's practice while battling a stomach issue, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. That left Griffin as the team's only healthy quarterback at practice, allowing him to pick up valuable reps. The statuses of Flacco and Jackson will bear monitoring heading into the Ravens' final practice of the week, but their absences Thursday increase the possibility of Griffin seeing his first NFL regular-season action since 2016.

Griffin and Lamar Jackson will both be candidates to start if Joe Flacco (hip) isn't available for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's never quite been clear whether Griffin or Jackson is the No. 2 quarterback, as the decision to keep the rookie active for games is dictated by his role as a rushing threat in certain packages. Jackson would obviously be the far more interesting choice, but it isn't out of the question that the Ravens could go with Griffin if they believe he's clearly superior as a passer. Flacco appears truly questionable for Week 11.

Griffin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's season-opening tilt against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran will give way to first-round pick Lamar Jackson as Joe Flacco's backup to start the season. Griffin may frequently be subject to inactive status as long as both Flacco and Jackson are healthy, considering the former's solid grip on the starting job to open the season and the team's desire to develop the latter as much as possible during his first season.

Coach John Harbaugh won't reveal whether Griffin or Lamar Jackson is the primary backup to Joe Flacco, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given that they haven't carried three quarterbacks into Week 1 since 2009, the Ravens' decision to do so this season seems like a strong hint they don't think Jackson is ready to play. Of course, the team does list Jackson in the second spot on the depth chart, nestled between Flacco and Griffin. We should have our answer Sunday morning when the team releases its inactive list for Week 1 against the Bills.

Griffin will start the year as Baltimore's No. 2 quarterback, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lamar Jackson accounted for six touchdowns during the preseason, but he completed just 50 percent of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt. The Ravens reportedly will turn to Griffin if Joe Flacco suffers an injury early in the season, though it won't come as any surprise if Jackson ultimately climbs higher on the depth chart.

Griffin earned a spot on Baltimore's initial 53-man roster, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach John Harbaugh typically only carries two quarterbacks, but Griffin carved out a third spot with his solid performance this preseason. It isn't quite clear if the Ravens would turn to Griffin or Lamar Jackson in the event of a Joe Flacco injury/benching.

Griffin completed nine of 15 passes for 66 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and added 41 yards on five rushes in the Ravens' 27-10 preseason win over the Dolphins on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin has been somewhat of a forgotten man in the team's quarterback competition, with all the focus centered on whether first-round pick Lamar Jackson could overtake incumbent Joe Flacco. However, Griffin has been doing his best to make it a three-man competition, with Saturday's performance his latest solid preseason effort. Factoring in his numbers against the Dolphins, Griffin has completed 27 of 41 passes (65.9 percent) for 243 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, more than holding his own in the battle. Whether it will be enough to nudge the Ravens into keeping three quarterbacks remains to be seen, but the former first-round pick figures to at least made enough of an impression to garner interest from other teams if he doesn't make final cuts.
