5. Should the Baltimore Ravens start to move Marlon Humphrey around?

One question we had entering the Lions game was whether the Ravens would use Marlon Humphrey like they used to and have him follow wide receivers around. The team had the chance against Amon-Ra St. Brown, who motions a lot and moves in and out of the slot. However, they did not.

The game was won in the trenches, and this note did not impact the game. Still, St. Brown had 102 yards, and a lot of that came in the slot against Arthur Maulet. Maulet is fine but is clearly the Ravens' weakest secondary member, so it is tough to see the Ravens decide to settle for lining him on the Lions' only threatening skill player in that game.

The Ravens are still working Humphrey back to health after his foot injury, so they may not have wanted to put that stress on him. We will not see him follow anyone against Arizona, so it may be a little more time until this question gets raised again. It will be interesting to see how they handle the slot moving forward.
