Baltimore Ravens Week 6 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 6 roundup for the Baltimore Ravens in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 11

Fantasy surprise: WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham missed two games with an ankle injury and hasn't been productive when he's been on the field. He is averaging a career-low 4.9 fantasy points per game this season. Beckham was a fantasy must-have from 2014 to 2020, when he averaged double digits per game in each of those seasons. His previous career low was 9.2 points per game, which was in 2021. Lamar Jackson's favorite target at wide receiver has been rookie Zay Flowers, and it doesn't look like that will change. -- Jamison Hensley

NFL.com -- Rank: 10

Sunday's loss hurt more than the Week 3 stunner against the Colts did, in my opinion. Sure, falling to a backup QB isn't ideal, but Gardner Minshew is decent, as are the Colts; plus, that game was straight-up fluky in a lot of ways. Week 5? The Ravens just gave Pittsburgh the win. They had chances to step on the Steelers' necks multiple times throughout, but dropped passes, turnovers (two by Lamar Jackson late) and special-teams breakdowns started the avalanche, with Pickett-to-Pickens finishing it. The Ravens are a good team. My suspicion is they'll snap out of whatever funk they're in and realize it. Maybe the trip to London will be cleansing. Or at least more cleansing than their last trip overseas.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 11

What happened to the offense against the Steelers? Lamar Jackson and the passing game kept missing big chances with drops and poor throws.

USA Today -- Rank: 10

It's been an uneven start, to say the least, but it's also unusual to play four of five away from home so early in the season — and Baltimore's three-game roadie winds to a conclusion Sunday in London.

The Athletic -- Rank: 11

Wide receiver Zay Flowers, the No. 22 pick, is third among all rookies with 317 receiving yards, and he's carrying a huge chunk of the Ravens' passing game. He's 11th in the league in team target percentage (28.6 percent), according to TruMedia. In the "new guy" category, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has a lot fewer catches (seven) than he had offseason headlines during his free agency.

FOX -- Rank: 9

The epitome of a "what the hell just happened" loss. Lamar Jackson's receivers dropped seven balls. Zay Flowers lost his footing on a probable touchdown. The Ravens gave up a 41-yard, go-ahead touchdown to a Steelers team that managed just 289 yards of offense. I'm not going to panic because this feels like a fluky loss — but regardless of how they happen, losses have a way of coming back to bite you.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 9

Odell Beckham Jr. has seven catches for 79 yards in the three games he has played this season. The Ravens paid Beckham $15 million for this season and it looks like they got left holding an empty bag. And they could use him, too; the Ravens' pass-catchers had way too many drops and mistakes in a winnable game against the Steelers.

PFT -- Rank: 13

If felt like the Ravens were trying to lose to the Steelers. And the Ravens still almost won.
