Ravens snap-count analysis: Marquise Brown steps into role as clear No. 1 wide receiver

Ravens offensive snap counts vs. Philadelphia Eagles 10/18/20

Orlando Brown Jr. T 73


Matt Skura C 73

Bradley Bozeman G 73


Lamar Jackson QB 73

Ronnie Stanley T 73

Marquise Brown WR 62

Nick Boyle TE 56


Tyre Phillips G 54

Willie Snead IV WR 49

Mark Andrews TE 37

Miles Boykin WR 33

Gus Edwards RB 32

J.K. Dobbins RB 30

Patrick Ricard FB 28

Devin Duvernay WR 26

Patrick Mekari G 19

Mark Ingram II RB 9

Ben Powers G 3

Observations: Marquise Brown played a career-high snap count and almost doubled Boykin’s workload. The team’s top three wide receivers (Brown, Snead and Boykin) played similar snap counts in the first three weeks of the season, but Brown has emerged as a clear No. 1 with Duvernay taking on a larger role every week. The Ravens went with a more run-oriented attack, evidenced by Boyle playing significantly more than Andrews, who had a quiet afternoon. Ricard also played more than he had in the previous three weeks. With Ingram sidelined by an ankle injury, Edwards and Dobbins played season-high snap counts.

Jihad Ward DT 20

Malik Harrison LB 8

Anthony Averett CB 5

Chris Board LB 3

Observations: As expected, Ellis inherited Brandon Williams' workload after the starting nose tackle went on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Ravens also asked more of Campbell, who delivered with his best game of the season. Judon played 17 more snaps than he did in Week 5. Smith seems to become more essential every week. With Averett sidelined for much of the game, the veteran cornerback played almost as much as Humphrey and Peters. Gilchrist played a significant role in secondary for a second straight week. Harrison does not seem to be making any move to take snaps away from Fort. McPhee, who’s delivered major production the last two weeks, played a season-high snap count.
