3. Does Isaiah Likely still have a role in the Baltimore Ravens offense?

Isaiah Likely had a huge year when you consider he was a rookie tight end. However, now you have to wonder how much of that had to do with him and how much of it had to do with the fact that the Ravens had nobody else to throw to. Now that the Ravens have so many more pass-catchers, does Likely get faded out?

Last year, he was competing with Demarcus Robinson and Desean Jackson. That had Likely third on the team in targets. Now, the Ravens have three wide receivers who should all get more targets. Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman, and Odell Beckham all need the targets, as does Mark Andrews. When you add in that Dobbins was not healthy and now may catch passes, is the piece of the pie much smaller this year? Even Charlie Kolar was drafted ahead of Likely has a chance to eat into his snaps and targets.

At the end of the day, Likely only had 373 yards. It was a fun story, but he was only a key part of the offense because the offense had serious issues. Now, he is just a fun role player who may get some snaps here and there. Or, we could find that Todd Monken still has a role for him.
