7. Is it time to start moving away from Arthur Maulet?

Arthur Maulet had a nice run as a starter, but it appears the team is moving away from him. In week four, he came back fully healthy from an offseason injury. Maulet played 63.8% of the snaps. That went down to 34.8% against Pittsburgh, but that is because of the way they run their personnel.

In week six, Maulet played 56.4% of the snaps, then 80% of the snaps against the Lions. However, he dropped to 70.1% against Arizona before playing just 42.9% last week. It is clear that the team is ready to move him into a more limited role, and it started with the return of Worley last week.

Maulet allowed big catches to Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Tyler Lockett. In a game where not many other leaks occurred, he stood out as a weak spot. When the Ravens get Marcus Williams back their best grouping will be Williams and Stone deep, with Hamilton in the slot. Now that Worley is back, the team might as well start moving Hamilton into the slot more and moving Maulet Iout. That started on Sunday.
