3. Will Odell Beckham bounce back for the Baltimore Ravens in a big way?
While the biggest takeaway from week one was that Zay Flowers looks like the real deal, an underrated takeaway may be that Odell Beckham has a chance to have an even better stat line in the coming weeks. Beckham caught a deep pass in this game, and he and Lamar Jackson may just be getting started on those connections.
With Flowers playing so close to the line, he may end up with more targets and catches, but what will open things up for him is Beckham running deep down the field. When teams adjust to Flowers and creep up, Beckham will be in line for a massive game.
Beckham had 41% of the team's air yards in this game. He had an average depth of target of 14. Meanwhile, Flowers had an average depth of target of 2.8. It is clear that they have contrasting roles. So, Flowers will take work underneath, but when it is time for the big plays down the field, Jackson will connect with Beckham.
He looked like a legitimate threat in this game, and Jackson will soon feel more comfortable, and will certainly be pushing them all down the field more.
