Rashod Bateman placed on IR, out first three weeks

The Baltimore Ravens have placed rookie wide receiver Rashod Bateman on IR with a groin injury (per Adam Schefter)

Fantasy Impact: With Bateman on IR, he’ll miss the first three weeks of the NFL season. It’s a bummer Bateman’s career has started with injury but hopefully the groin will be fully ready to go once he returns off IR. This injury might push Bateman off manager’s draft boards and if that is the case, he’s 100% worth monitoring on waivers. Personally, drafting Bateman in the late rounds of a draft to ensure he’s on your team isn’t a bad idea.
