Ravens snap-count analysis: Anthony Averett receives career-high workload as injuries force lineup tinkering

Ravens offensive snap counts vs. Washington Football Team 10/4/20

Orlando Brown Jr. T 57


Matt Skura C 57

D.J. Fluker T 57


Tyre Phillips G 50

Bradley Bozeman G 47

Lamar Jackson QB 47

Marquise Brown WR 43


Nick Boyle TE 38

Mark Andrews TE 37

Willie Snead IV WR 32

Myles Boykin WR 31

Patrick Ricard FB 25

Gus Edwards RB 22

J.K. Dobbins RB 21

Devin Duvernay WR 16

Mark Ingram II RB 14

Patrick Mekari G 11

Robert Griffin III QB 10

Ben Powers G 7

Ben Bredeson G 4

James Proche II WR 1

Observations: Phillips and Bozeman did not play the entire way. With the game in hand late, perhaps the Ravens simply wanted to take a look at their reserve options on the interior offensive line. As a result, Bredeson saw his first NFL action. Snead and Boykin played season-low snap counts while Boyle and Ricard saw their workloads increase sharply from the previous week, indicating that the Ravens were more run-oriented. We’ve come to expect the democratic rotation at running back, but it was still striking to see Ingram on the field for just 14 snaps. He routinely played 30 snaps or more in 2019. Duvernay received his promised increase in work, though Jackson targeted him just twice.

Malik Harrison LB 9

Khalil Dorsey CB 4

Observations: With Smith limited by a knee injury, Averett played a career-high snap count, more than doubling his total from the previous week. With Derek Wolfe out, Washington received a healthy dose of experience after not playing at all in Week 3. Ward and Ellis played season-high snap counts. While Queen is pushing toward every-down status, fellow rookie Harrison has been stuck in a reduced role since he played 21 snaps in Week 1. The Ravens eased McPhee’s workload slightly, something they’ll probably look to do when they can after the veteran broke down last season.
