4. Is the Nelson Agholor emergence legitimate?
When the Baltimore Ravens started the season, it seemed pretty clear that Nelson Agholor would be the fourth threat at wide receiver. Zay Flowers has held it down as the number one, but neither Odell Beckham nor Rashod Bateman has stepped into the number two or three role.
This has led to Nelson Agholor playing a ton. With Beckham and Bateman injured, Agholor played a lot in weeks three and four. In weeks five and six, those two were back. However, Beckham ran 45 routes, Bateman ran 33, and then there was Agholor, who ran 50 routes. A lot of that has to do with his emergence in the slot.
The Ravens will mix in Beckham and Bateman on the outside, but it is Agholor who gets the work in the slot more often than either. Will this continue, or will Beckham and Bateman get healthy, leading to the Ravens playing them a bit more in the coming weeks?
