Ravens' Willie Snead: Makes splash play against Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught one of two targets for 32 yards Sunday against the Eagles.

Snead again was lightly used Sunday, but he managed to make a splash play with a strong run after the catch on a 32-yard gain. He was on the field for 67 percent of the snaps, a slight uptick from his 60 percent clip Week 5. Snead is on a bye Week 7 before returning to action Week 8 against the Steelers, and while he'll still see plenty of playing time, the Ravens may start diverting more of their targets to young players like Devin Duvernay.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Held without a catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead was held without a catch on three targets Sunday against the Bengals.

The veteran had caught all 10 of his targets on the year entering Sunday but was shut out by the Bengals. Snead played just 60 percent of the snaps -- 38 total -- which is in line with his season average outside of the Chiefs game in which he played 84 percent of the snaps. Despite playing a relatively high percentage of the snaps, Snead is not a major part of the passing game. He and the Ravens will travel to Philadelphia for a Week 6 showdown with the Eagles.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Efficient on low target volume
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught both of his targets for 20 yards against the Football Team.

The veteran slot receiver has caught all 10 of his targets this season for 117 yards and a touchdown. While that's great efficiency, it also shows that Snead isn't drawing targets at a high rate (2.5 Tar/Game). He hasn't seen more than two targets in any game since the season opener, and he hasn't scored since then, either. Snead is a low-volume slot receiver in this offense. He will face the Bengals on Sunday.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Quiet against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught both of his targets for a total of four yards Monday against the Chiefs.

Snead played the most snaps (47) of any Baltimore receiver but didn't factor much into the passing game. He was fifth among pass-catchers in targets and only mustered four yards on his two catches. Snead has now seen just two targets in each of his last two games after a big season opener with four catches for 64 yards and a touchdown. He will face Washington in Week 4.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Efficient on low volume
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught both of his targets for 29 yards Sunday against the Texans.

The veteran slot receiver continues to be effective when targeted, having caught all six of his targets for 93 yards and a touchdown through two games. Snead has a catch of at least 20 yards in each game as well. While Snead is effective in his role, it's not a role that adds up to much volume. He ranks fourth on the team in target share, and Baltimore has attempted a league-low 50 passes as a team. Snead and the Ravens will take on the Chiefs in Week 3.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Contributes to rout Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught all four of his targets for 64 yards and a score in Sunday's 38-6 win over the Browns.

The veteran slot receiver played the second-most snaps among Baltimore receivers Sunday and tied for second on the team in targets as Lamar Jackson was spreading the ball around. Snead was extremely effective with his opportunities, though, as he caught all of his targets, including a 19-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Baltimore's passing game still flows through Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown, but Snead is still the primary slot receiver in an explosive aerial attack.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Drops weight during offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead said Wednesday that he feels faster after losing seven pounds during the offseason, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

The change could help Snead gain separation from cornerbacks, but blocking is also a huge part of his distinct role in Greg Roman's offense. Despite signing a one-year, $6 million extension last fall, Snead isn't likely to see a big increase from last year's total of 46 targets.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Faces competition from rookies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead's passing game role will likely be affected by the Ravens' draft, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Baltimore nabbed Devin Duvernay and James Proche in the draft, and given that receiver was considered by most to be the Ravens' most pressing need entering the draft, this is a problem for Snead. Both players project to start out in the slot, which is where Snead plays. Duvernay poses the biggest immediate threat as he was taken in the third round and is the second-fastest receiver on the team behind Marquise Brown. Zrebiec notes that Snead's blocking ability is important in Baltimore's offense, so his role isn't completely going away. But from a fantasy aspect, Snead's stock is trending down with the Duvernay and Proche additions.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Plenty of action in upset loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead hauled in six of eight targets for 56 yards in the Ravens' 28-12 divisional-round loss to the Titans on Saturday.

Snead checked in as the Ravens' runner-up in receptions, receiving yardage and targets to top option Marquise Brown. The veteran was a frequent target of Lamar Jackson's in the fruitless comeback effort, and he played his usual steady role in the short-to-intermediate passing window. Despite its relatively productive conclusion, Snead's 2019 season was largely a disappointment from a fantasy perspective, as he saw significant downturns in catches (31) and receiving yards (339) compared to the 62-651 line he'd generated in 2018. While he did make up for it to an extent with a career-best five touchdown grabs, it remains to be seen if it's enough for Baltimore to keep him on the books for $5.4 million next season.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Records four touches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught three of five passes for 22 yards during Sunday's 28-10 win over the Steelers, and failed to gain any yards on his lone carry.

It was a quiet day for most of the Ravens' weapons, as Lamar Jackson and other front-line players were rested and Baltimore's defense smothered a depleted Pittsburgh squad. Snead was among the exceptions. His five targets were his most since Week 6 and his four touches and 22 yards were his most since Week 5. That should tell you all that you need to know about his role in this offense. After a bye, the Ravens will play the Texans, Bills or Titans in the divisional round. Snead caught five of seven targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in games against Houston and Buffalo this season.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Playing time, targets wane
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead was held without a catch on his lone target Sunday against the Browns.

Snead played just 41 percent of the snaps Sunday and was not involved in the passing game while Marquise Brown and Seth Roberts played the most among the Baltimore wideouts. With some key starters sitting out in Week 17, Snead could be more featured in the offense than usual. He won't have the benefit of catching passes from Lamar Jackson, however, as Robert Griffin will be getting the start while Jackson is rested for the playoffs.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Target volume dips
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught his lone target for 15 yards in Thursday's 42-21 win over the Jets.

Snead's volume dropped off Thursday after he saw multiple targets in six straight games. That said, Snead hasn't had more than 20 receiving yards in any game since Week 5. With a small target share and a low average depth of target (9.1), Snead doesn't have much in the way of peripheral numbers to portend a major turnaround down the stretch.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Finds end zone vs. Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught three of four targets for 13 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Bills.

Snead tied for the team lead in targets, and although none of his catches went for more than seven yards, he salvaged his performance with a short touchdown grab in the fourth quarter. The veteran now has three touchdowns in his last three games, giving him a new career high of five for the season. Snead hasn't surpassed 18 receiving yards in any of his last eight outings, however, and will be a risky fantasy play Thursday against the Jets.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Held to 12 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught one of two targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over San Francisco.

Snead actually led all Ravens wide receivers in yardage, with only tight ends Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst surpassing Snead's meager total. Another tough defense looms in Buffalo in Week 14, so Snead will be tough to trust in Baltimore's run-first attack.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Tallies two touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught two of three targets for 14 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 45-6 win over the Rams.

Snead's receptions were duplicates of each other, as they both came from seven yards out and ended in pay dirt. Those scores marked Snead's first touchdowns since the first month of this season, doubling his total tally to four. Considering his last four stat lines have been nearly identical aside from Monday's touchdowns, Snead's upside remains relatively restricted.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Held to 13 yards in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught two of three targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 41-7 win over the Texans.

Lamar Jackson and the Ravens' offense continue to dazzle, but Snead has largely been left out in the cold. During Baltimore's last five games, during which the team has averaged 36 points per game, he's averaging 12.0 receiving yards per game and hasn't topped 20 yards since Week 5. Snead has shown the ability in the past to make a difference even with limited opportunities, but he just hasn't done so lately. Next up is a matchup against the Rams' 15th-ranked pass defense.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Snags two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught two of three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 49-13 win over the Bengals.

Snead played a season-low 22 offensive snaps, which could simply be a result of the blowout nature of this contest. There weren't many opportunities for Snead to make an impact, either, as Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin combined for 22 passing attempts. Still, this is becoming a theme for Snead, as he hasn't surpassed four receptions or 61 yards in a game this year.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Snags both targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught both of his targets for 15 yards Sunday against the Patriots.

Just days after receiving a contract extension, Snead made good on both of his chances against New England, including a crucial fourth-down conversion. The slot receiver sees an uneven target share, logging three games with five targets and five games with three targets or less. He hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 4 against the Browns and hasn't gone over 20 yards in any of the last three weeks. Snead draws a favorable matchup against the Bengals in Week 10, but it'd take a fantasy roster facing major bye-week attrition to put him on the radar as a possible starter.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Receives one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead agreed to a one-year, $6 million extension Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The deal is fully guaranteed and locks Snead into the 2020 campaign with the Ravens. He's proved to be a solid fit with Lamar Jackson, reeling in 15 of 22 targets for 223 yards and two touchdowns in seven games this season. Those numbers aren't eye-popping, but they are decent enough in a run-based offense, and behind more explosive options like tight end Mark Andrews and rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (ankle).

Ravens' Willie Snead: Catchless in Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead was held without a catch on just one target and added a two-yard rush Sunday against the Seahawks.

Baltimore attempted its fewest number of passes Sunday as the Ravens leaned heavily on Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram in the run game. With that, there weren't many targets to go around, even with Marquise Brown sidelined. Snead still played a high snap count (over 60 percent) and remains involved in the offense, but he is still a distant third behind Brown and Mark Andrews in terms of targets in a low-volume passing attack. The Ravens are on a bye before returning to action Nov. 3 against the Patriots.
