Rashod Bateman to undergo groin surgery, return in September

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Rashod Bateman will undergo groin surgery and return “some point in September” (per Ari Meirov)

Fantasy Impact: Bateman set to miss all preseason and maybe a few weeks of the regular season is far from good news for fantasy managers. Already playing in an offense that doesn’t throw the ball, Bateman being behind the jump in terms of getting the offense and on the same page as Lamar Jackson significantly hurts his fantasy potential. Bateman is worth monitoring on the waiver wire, but unless you’re in a dynasty startup, he’s not worth drafting.
