    Ravens' Willie Snead: Caught passes during minicamp

    Willie Snead (finger) caught passes in team drills during June's mandatory minicamp, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.The fact Snead has been cleared to catch passes suggests his surgically repaired finger is a thing of the past. After a 2018 campaign in which his efficiency and production dipped after Lamar Jackson took over at quarterback, Snead's full health should allow him to focus on developing better chemistry with his signal caller.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Recovering from finger surgery

    Willie Snead had offseason surgery on his finger, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.Snead has been limited throughout the spring but is pushing to get on the field. He also mentioned losing 10 pounds during the offseason in an effort to add speed and get more separation from defensive backs. Entering the second season of a two-year, $7 million contract, Snead figures to reprise his role in the slot while Marquise Brown (foot), Chris Moore, Miles Boykin (hamstring), Seth Roberts, Michael Floyd and a few other players compete for snaps outside. Roberts also has a long track record of playing the slot, so it's possible the Baltimore Ravens move Snead outside more often if he does in fact look faster once he's cleared for full practice participation.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Leads team in catches

    Willie Snead recorded a team-high 62 receptions for 651 yards and a touchdown on 91 targets in his first season with the Baltimore 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.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Solid effort in wild-card loss

    Willie Snead brought in three of six targets for 50 yards in the Baltimore 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.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Quiet effort Week 16

    Willie Snead was not targeted in Saturday's 22-10 win over the Chargers.Snead was on the field for 42 of the Baltimore 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.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Productive in Week 15 win

    Willie Snead brought in five of six targets for 58 yards in the Baltimore 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.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Leads team in receiving

    Willie 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 Baltimore 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.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Quiet again

    Willie 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 Baltimore 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.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Role bottoms out

    Willie Snead was not targeted despite playing 49 of the Baltimore 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.

    Ravens' Willie Snead: Totals 51 yards

    Willie 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.
