Snead caught five of seven targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Chiefs. Held to one catch for eight yards over the previous two weeks, Snead led the Ravens in catches, targets and receiving yards in Sunday's narrow defeat. He's still averaging just 2.8 catches for 30 yards per game with Lamar Jackson starting at quarterback, compared to 5.0 catches for 49.8 yards with Joe Flacco (hip) under center. Jackson's ankle injury might open the door for Flacco to rejoin the lineup, but it otherwise seems the Ravens are content to utilize a run-heavy game plan with the rookie taking snaps. Snead does at least get a favorable Week 15 matchup against the burnable Tampa Bay secondary.
Snead caught one of three targets for eight yards against the Falcons. A week after being held without a target, Snead was slightly more involved in the game plan this time around as he played the most snaps (66) of any Baltimore receiver. It only converted into three targets on those snaps, however, and he only brought in one reception for an eight-yard gain. Baltimore has been decidedly run-heavy in Joe Flacco's absence, so most of the Ravens' pass-catchers are seeing target reductions across the board. Barring a drastic change in how the offense functions under Lamar Jackson, Snead could continue to see a minimal role in the offense.
Snead was not targeted despite playing 49 of the Ravens' 70 offensive snaps against the Raiders. The former Saint went from being the most-targeted receiver against Cincinnati in Week 11 to being blanked in the box score in Week 12. The silver lining is that Snead's playing time did not take much of a dip, so he doesn't appear to be in danger of losing playing time. Snead will draw a familiar matchup against a former division foe, the Falcons, on Sunday.
Snead caught five of eight passes for 51 yards during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati. How will Baltimore's receivers be impacted with Lamar Jackson at quarterback? For Snead, the answer was not much. The off-season acquisition was targeted at least seven times for the seventh consecutive game and topped 50 yards for the sixth time during that span. He still hasn't found the end zone since Week 1, but Snead looks like he'll be about the same player no matter whether it's Joe Flacco (hip) or Lamar Jackson throwing him passes. Look for him to try to exploit an Oakland pass defense giving up 258 yards per game in Week 12.
Snead caught seven of eight targets for 58 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Steelers. Snead led the Ravens in targets, catches and receiving yards. The slot receiver has established some nice PPR value heading into Baltimore's Week 10 bye, having eclipsed five catches for 50 yards in five of the past six weeks. Snead's ceiling is capped, however: His season high in yardage is 60, and he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 1.
