    Ravens' Chris Givens: Struggles after trade to Baltimore

    Givens caught 19 passes for 346 yards and a touchdown on 53 targets in 12 games with the Ravens in 2015. Traded from the Rams to the Ravens for a conditional draft pick in early October, Givens did nothing to suggest that he's a part of the team's future, whereas Kamar Aiken and Jeremy Butler both impressed late in the season. Even if he returns in 2016, Givens will face an uphill battle to earn a roster spot.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Catches one pass against Kansas City

    Givens was targeted five times, but managed just a 17- yard catch in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. With a career yards-per-catch average of over 16.5, Givens' value is based solely around his ability to get deep. From Weeks 7 through 13, Givens wasn't catching many passes, but was gaining chunks of yardage when he did, recording a reception of 20 or more yards in five of six games. With Jimmy Clausen under center, Givens has caught just one pass over the past two weeks. Should the Ravens switch over to the cannon-armed Ryan Mallett to close the season, Givens speed may be put to better use.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Doesn't get any targets

    Givens wasn't targeted in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks. Givens still played quite a few offensive snaps, but he already had his turn to make an impression, and the Ravens are now evaluating other young wide receivers. Givens may be the best-known name among the bunch, but former UDFAs Jeremy Butler and Daniel Brown have shown more promise.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Catches three balls against Dolphins

    Givens caught just three of his eight targets for 68 yards in Sunday's loss to Miami. It was encouraging to see Givens receive eight targets, but the 26-year-old receiver still only has four catches in the two games started by quarterback Matt Schaub. Givens may struggle to find room against the talented Seahawks secondary next week.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Catches just one pass in win

    Givens caught one pass for 48 yards on three targets in Monday's 33-27 win over the Browns. Givens took advantage of a coverage breakdown for his lone reception of the game, and he could have had a touchdown if Matt Schaub hadn't underthrown the ball. Though he should continue to get some shots down the field, Givens isn't getting enough targets to warrant consideration outside of very deep formats. He and Jeremy Butler have essentially been Co-No. 2 wideouts the last two games.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Quiet despite seven targets

    Givens caught just two of the seven balls thrown his way for 25 yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Rams. Quarterback Joe Flacco tried to keep Givens involved by throwing to him a healthy seven times, but the veteran receiver failed to capitalize. Givens hasn't been much of a factor this season, even with his increased role in the wake of Steve Smith's season-ending Achilles injury.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Catches first touchdown of season

    Givens caught four passes for 37 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Sunday's 22-20 loss to the Jaguars. With Steve Smith (Achilles) out for the season, Givens and Kamar Aiken were the starting wide receivers. Givens struggled to get open against man coverage, but he did find a soft spot in a zone for an easy 14-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Although Aiken is the clear lead target, Givens surely earned himself at least one more week as the No. 2 wide receiver. The matchup will be much tougher this time around, with Baltimore facing the Rams instead of the Jaguars.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Listed as starter on depth chart

    Givens is listed as the starter across from Kamar Aiken on the Ravens' latest depth chart, the team's official website reports. With Steve Smith (Achilles) out for the season, the Ravens will likely look to Givens for big plays and to Aiken for short and intermediate gains. Not that both players won't get a variety of opportunities, but Aiken is the clear favorite to lead the team in targets, especially with Givens likely to be on a short leash in the starting role. Givens has mostly been unimpressive to this point in his career, but his deep speed could mesh well with Joe Flacco's big arm.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Could take on expanded role

    With Steve Smith (Achilles) out for the season, Givens is one of five healthy wide receivers on Baltimore's active roster, the team's official website reports. Givens hauled in three of his four targets for 57 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers, receiving extra playing after Steve Smith (Achilles) was injured. Smith's snaps and targets will likely be divided among a slew of players, but Givens and Kamar Aiken are the most intriguing options of the bunch. The Ravens have a Week 9 bye, followed by a Week 10 home game against the Jaguars.

    Ravens' Chris Givens: Catches two passes in loss

    Givens caught both of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the 49ers. Givens didn't play many snaps and surprisingly didn't get any looks down the field, but with Marlon Brown still struggling, both Givens and Jeremy Ross have the opportunity to push for more playing time. Though he seems like a nice fit with Joe Flacco's big arm, Givens is unlikely to see more than three or four targets in any given game. Steve Smith is still the only Baltimore wide receiver worthy of consideration in most leagues.
