1. The Baltimore Ravens are happy they signed Nelson Agholor
When the Baltimore Ravens signed Nelson Agholor, many fans were disappointed. The addition of Zay Flowers and Odell Beckham was praised because the team can rely less on Agholor. Agholor has not been a game-changer, but he has been worth the contract he was given.
Nelson Agholor has 16 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown. He is outproducing both Odell Beckham and Rashod Bateman right now. This could be why the offense is in a funk, but it still speaks to the value that Agholor brings. As the number four, he can play all of the roles in the offense. So, he has had to fill in for both of those wide receivers and get work inside and outside.
As they have recovered the Ravens have let Agholor continue to get a big role in the offense.
Last year, the Ravens had DeMarcus Robinson as one of their top receivers, and he averaged 1.34 yards per route run. Many wondered if Agholor would even be better than Robinson as they would fit a similar role. Right now, Agholor is averaging 1.67 yards per route run. He was paid to be the number four wideout and is acting like the number two. That is a win.
