Joe Flacco needs to make up for lost time. The Ravens forfeited two of their 10 voluntary offseason practices last week after breaking NFL rules. It's the third time since 2010 that the NFL has disciplined coach John Harbaugh and his team for an offseason violation.
As the story said, this impacts the chemistry-building of Flacco and Baltimore's revamped passing game the most. Among the 19 wide receivers and tight ends on the roster, 12 are in their first year with the Ravens, including Crabtree, Brown, and Snead. What helps is the Ravens starting training camp a week earlier than usual. Baltimore's first full-team practice is scheduled for July 19 because the Ravens play in the Hall of Fame game.
BAL WR Willie Snead - Week 18 Fantasy Football Outlook
Wildcard Round vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Willie Snead suffered along with the rest of the Ravens receiver corps when Lamar Jackson took over at quarterback seven games ago. While he did have three games with five catches, he also had four games with either one or zero catches. The Ravens have gone to a run-heavy approach and there’s no reason to think that changes against the Chargers this week in the playoffs. With excellent receivers available this week for other teams, there’s no reason to look to Snead or any other pass-catcher in Baltimore.
