Snead recorded a team-high 62 receptions for 651 yards and a touchdown on 91 targets in his first season with the Ravens in 2018. The former Saint was a consistent contributor in Baltimore's low-volume passing attack this past season. He saw at least five targets in 13 games and caught 64.4 percent of his looks while accounting for 18.5 percent of the team's air yards. Snead's reliable presence over the middle and as a downfield blocker make it likely that he'll be back for the second year of his two-year deal in Baltimore in 2019.
Snead brought in three of six targets for 50 yards in the Ravens' 23-17 wild-card loss to the Chargers on Sunday. Snead ended up co-leading the team in receptions on the afternoon alongside Kenneth Dixon, and he came just three yards short of matching the latter's team-high tally in that category. The fourth-year wideout thus put together a solid conclusion to what was a bounce-back campaign, following a forgettable 2017 in New Orleans in which he managed just eight receptions for 92 yards over 11 games. Conversely, Snead generated a 62-651-1 line for the Ravens in 2018, encouragingly posting a trio of five-catch efforts with Jackson under center during the regular season. Looking ahead to 2019, Snead will look to further his rapport with the young quarterback during what will be a contract year for the 26-year-old wideout.
Snead was not targeted in Saturday's 22-10 win over the Chargers. Snead was on the field for 42 of the Ravens' 62 snaps on offense Week 16, but he put up a zero for those hoping he'd be a PPR asset following back-to-back five-catch efforts. The slot man will look to get back on the same page with QB Lamar Jackson in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Browns.
Snead brought in five of six targets for 58 yards in the Ravens' 20-12 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. Snead paced the Ravens pass catchers in both receptions and receiving yards on the day, continuing what has been a nice bounce-back campaign. The 26-year-old now has back-to-back five-catch efforts, and he's totaled at least 50 receiving yards in five the last six contests. Snead's yardage upside remains relatively capped overall due to a combination of Lamar Jackson's current limitations as a passer and Snead's own slot role, but he's been a serviceable asset in PPR formats. He'll look to generate another solid line against the Chargers in Week 16 Saturday night showdown.
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.
