Ravens' Nick Boyle: Roster spot seemingly safe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle is "solidified in his role" despite the Ravens taking two tight ends in the first three rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Baltimore already had a crowded tight end depth chart before the draft, but the additions of Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews complicate things further. Because the Ravens spent valuable draft capital -- a pair of top-100 picks -- on those two, it's clear that the Ravens intend to incorporate both of them into the offense in short order. Fortunately for Boyle, it doesn't appear the rookie infusion will hurt his role much. Boyle is still a key cog in the run game as a blocker and was on the field for 66 percent of the Ravens' offensive snaps in 2017. Hurst and Andrews may cut into his snaps and targets to an extent, but it doesn't seem his roster spot is in jeopardy unlike that of 2015 second-rounder Maxx Williams.

Ravens' Nick Boyle: Heavy blocking duties in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle recorded 28 receptions for 203 yards and no touchdowns on 37 targets over 15 games in 2017.

Entering the year, Boyle had some buzz as a potential sleeper at tight end, considering his main competition at that position for targets was an aging Ben Watson coming off an Achilles injury. Boyle did play a significant role, seeing 64 percent of the offensive snaps to tie with Watson for second among Ravens skill position players; however, his primary duties were centered around blocking. He is a reasonably reliable pass-catcher in his own right, having caught 54 of 66 targets in his career, but Watson was simply better suited to handle most of the target volume in the short and intermediate passing game. If Watson, whose contract expired, does not return, Boyle should have a chance to see an uptick in volume in the passing game; that said, the Ravens value Boyle's blocking a fair amount, and the team may want to see what it has in former second-rounder Maxx Williams when it comes to being the pass-catching tight end in 2018.

Ravens' Nick Boyle: Catches one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Browns

Boyle is an important piece for the Baltimore rushing attack, but his role as the No. 2 tight end doesn't lead to many targets. He's caught exactly one pass in each of Baltimore's five games since a Week 10 bye.

Ravens' Nick Boyle: Sees two targets in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle caught a two-yard reception in his return to action Sunday against the Packers.

The Delaware product played a healthy number of snaps, seeing 43 of a possible 59 plays, which was the most among Baltimore's tight ends. Boyle was still quiet in terms of his impact in the passing game, however, as he saw fewer than four targets for the fourth time in his last five games. As it stands, Boyle is primarily a blocking tight end that does have pass-catching ability but doesn't see enough volume to garner much fantasy interest.

Ravens' Nick Boyle: Practices without issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle (toe) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

As expected, Boyle is ready to go, as the Ravens come out of a bye week. He'll step back in as the No. 2 tight end Sunday in Green Bay, providing a boost to the Baltimore rushing attack.
