Ravens' Isaiah Likely expected to play 'significant snaps' early

Baltimore Ravens fourth-round rookie tight end Isaiah Likely "figures to playing significant snaps from the jump" in the regular season," writes Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Zrebiec says Likely "quickly emerged as a popular target" for Lamar Jackson on a team that lacks reliable pass-catching talent beyond Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman. The Ravens are expected to feature two tight ends as much as any team in the league, so Likely's potential emergence shouldn't cut into Andrews' playing time or volume.

numberFire's models currently project Likely for 27.6 targets, 18.7 receptions, 187.6 yards, and 1.68 touchdowns this season.
