Ravens' Willie Snead: Makes three catches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught three of five targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 23-17 win over the Bengals.

Snead finished second on the team in targets, but he did virtually nothing of note as his longest gain went for just 10 yards. The absence of Marquise Brown (ankle) had little impact on usage for the veteran, who had received five targets in two of the previous three games and averaged 53 yards per game over that stretch. Snead is far from a bankable fantasy option seemingly regardless of who's in the lineup, and this should remain the case in next week's away matchup with the Seahawks.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Grabs four passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught four of five passes for 51 yards during Sunday's 26-23 overtime win against the Steelers.

It doesn't look like much, but Snead's four receptions were his most since Week 16 of the 2018 season. The veteran target is catching passes at an impressive 17.1 yards-per-reception clip, but it's hard to get much consistency in Baltimore's unconventional offense. He has a favorable matchup in Week 6 against a Bengals defense surrendering 12.3 yards per catch, the eighth-highest rate in the league.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Scores 50-yard TD in garbage time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught both of his targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 40-25 loss to the Browns.

Garbage time scores count just the same as all others, and anybody who plugged in Snead was rewarded with a 50-yard touchdown in the final minute after he had posted a dud up until that point. Snead has only eight catches through four games, but he's managed to top 40 yards three times. He also has two touchdowns on the season heading into the Ravens' Week 5 trip to Pittsburgh.

Ravens' Willie Snead: More involved against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught three of five targets for 47 yards Sunday against the Chiefs.

Snead is now up to 93 yards on the season and has posted at least 40 yards in two of his three games. Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews will continue to be the primary options in this offense, but Snead plays the most snaps of any Baltimore skill player, so the targets could start to tick up over time.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Limited impact against Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead had just one catch for five yards on one target Sunday against the Cardinals.

Marquise Brown is staking his claim to being Baltimore's top receiver over Snead, who has just three catches for 46 yards on four targets to start the year. Snead is tied for fourth on the team in target share and has seen three or less targets in six of his last eight regular-season games dating back to last year. It's unlikely that he'll continue to be a non-factor in this offense, but it's fair to wonder whether he'll be anything more than the No. 3 target behind Brown and Mark Andrews.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Finds end zone in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead brought in two of three targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 59-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.

Snead entered the season as the Ravens' top receiver on the depth chart, but as was demonstrated Sunday, rookie Marquise Brown could make that designation obsolete in short order. However, Snead did make his fantasy mark in Sunday's deconstruction of the Dolphins with a 33-yard scoring grab early in the second quarter, and he could well thrive against plenty of single coverage in many games this season if Brown continues to prove as big a threat as he was Sunday. Snead will look to build on his solid start to the season when the Ravens take on the Cardinals in Week 2.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Gets rested Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead did not play in Thursday's preseason win over the Eagles.

Baltimore opted to rest several offensive starters Thursday, including Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram. Snead has already locked in a starting role as the slot receiver for the Ravens, so there was little need to expose him to further game action if the purpose of that tilt was to get reps for younger players. It's unclear whether Baltimore will play any starters in its preseason finale, but either way, Snead figures to be on the field when the Ravens open up in Miami on Sept. 8.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Scores in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught his lone target for a 10-yard touchdown during Thursday's 29-0 win over the Jaguars.

Lamar Jackson capped Baltimore's third drive of the game with a quick out to Snead, who swiveled through the defense for a 10-yard score. A lot will be made in the coming days of Jackson sticking in and delivering in the pocket after an offseason focused on his ability to run. If Jackson is able get the ball out quickly and let Snead do his thing in the open field, the veteran receiver will be a commodity given the fact that Michael Crabtree and John Brown are no longer on the depth chart.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Back for minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 no longer a concern. 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Solid effort in wild-card loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Quiet effort Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Productive in Week 15 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Leads team in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Quiet again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Role bottoms out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Totals 51 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Tops 50 yards again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Willie Snead: Leads team in receiving in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead caught five of 11 targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 36-21 loss to Carolina.

Snead saw just one fewer target than John Brown and Michael Crabtree combined on the day but still failed to do much with the opportunity in what was Joe Flacco's worst game of the season in terms of passing yards. The 26-year-old has made at least five grabs in all but two weeks this season yet still has not surpassed 60 receiving yards in a single contest. He'll look to break that streak Week 9 at home against Pittsburgh.
