Floyd agreed to a deal with the Ravens on Friday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Floyd spent 2018 in Washington but failed to make much of an impact with 10 receptions for 100 yards and one touchdown in 13 games. The 29-year-old could seemingly carve out a role behind Willie Snead and rookies Marquise Brown (foot) and Miles Boykin (hamstring). It's worth remembering Floyd hasn't topped 500 receiving yards since 2015 with the Cardinals, and that the Ravens feature a low-volume passing attack with Lamar Jackson under center.
Floyd caught 10 of 24 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in 13 games with Washington in 2018. The 13th overall pick from the 2012 NFL Draft was released by New Orleans at the end of the preseason, eventually catching on with Washington in mid-September and then making his season debut Week 5. He actually started the final two games of the campaign, with terrible injury luck for the Redskins freeing up a spot in three-wide formations. Floyd didn't do the best job making a case for his NFL future, producing just 4.2 yards per target with one reception for every 34.5 snaps. Now scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, the 29-year-old wideout will need to battle for a roster spot regardless of where he ends up this offseason.
Floyd had one catch (three targets) for a seven-yard touchdown in Saturday's 25-16 loss to Tennessee. Floyd was able to catch his first touchdown pass of the season after moving up to third on the depth chart with Maurice Harris (concussion) ruled out. While the score was nice, the overall lack of involvement severely limits Floyd's fantasy appeal. (He hasn't caught more than two passes in a game all season.) The veteran shouldn't draw much fantasy interest even if Harris can't play against the Eagles in Week 17.
Floyd caught two of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over Jacksonville. Floyd has made a decent case to usurp an ice-cold Maurice Harris for the No. 3 wideout role, and yet the two players still seem to be sharing snaps. Regardless, there isn't much production to be had in the Washington offense, particularly with a tough road matchup against the Titans on tap in Week 16.
Floyd was held without a catch on two targets in Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants. Floyd played 31 of 62 snaps (50 percent) on offense, finishing fourth among Washington wide receivers. He could get a few more chances if Josh Doctson (concussion) misses time, but a Week 15 contest at Jacksonville doesn't provide much cause for optimism, nor does the Redskins' quarterback situation with Josh Johnson expected to start.
