Devin Duvernay: Shows flashes as rookie

Duvernay had 20 catches for 201 yards on 26 targets and added four rushes for 70 yards as a rookie. He also ran one kick back for a touchdown.

Analysis: The rookie out of Texas was impressive on a per-target basis but consistent playing time was hard to come by. Duvernay finally cracked the receiver rotation after the Week 7 bye, averaging a 52 percent snap share over his next six games. He caught nine of 12 targets for 111 yards in that stretch but his snaps and production fell off a cliff down the stretch with one catch for no gain over his final four games. Looking long-term, this was not a disappointing season for Duvernay and there is plenty of room for development in Year 2. Duvernay will have a better chance at surpassing Miles Boykin for the No.2 role out wide with a year of NFL experience under his belt. There's also the distinct possibility that neither Dez Bryant nor Willie Snead will be back next season, so there should be a path for Duvernay to find his way onto the fantasy radar.

Devin Duvernay: Two touches in win

Duvernay caught his lone target for no gain and rushed once for seven yards in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants. He also returned to punts for 36 yards and two kicks for 39 yards.

Analysis: Duvernay took over as the primary punt returner and immediately showed promise, recording returns of 23 and 13 yards. However, the rookie third-rounder continues to stay out of the offensive game plan, as he's recorded just six receptions for 27 yards over the last six contests.

Devin Duvernay: Minimally involved Sunday

Durvernay wasn't targeted during Sunday's 40-14 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: The 23-year-old played only four offensive snaps as his role continues to diminish in Baltimore's offense. Duvernay played 75-plus percent of the offensive snaps Weeks 12 and 13, but he's barely been on the field the past two weeks.

Devin Duvernay: Role drops off Monday

Duvernay was not targeted on nine offensive snaps Monday against the Browns.

Analysis: The rookie was hardly involved Monday after seeing his snap shares tick up dramatically in recent weeks. Duvernay had played at least 41 snaps in each of his last two games before Monday's outing. The dropoff coincides with Willie Snead's return from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Duvernay could be looking at a minimal role in the offense down the stretch now that Snead is healthy.

Devin Duvernay: Draws just one target in Week 13

Duvernay had a two-yard reception on one target against the Cowboys.

Analysis: The rookie played a heavy percentage of the snaps -- 80 percent, 44 snaps overall -- but the production lagged behind on Tuesday. In fairness, Baltimore attempted just 17 passes all game, but Duvernay still saw just one target on a night where he played nearly every snap and Dez Bryant was out. In all, Duvernay has now played more than 50 percent of the snaps in three of his last four games, and has played over 75 percent of the snaps in the last two games. Duvernay's role is starting to solidify within the offense, but the targets are still hard to come by at this stage.

Devin Duvernay: Second-leading receiver in loss

Duvernay secured all three targets for 20 yards and returned two kickoffs for 44 yards in the Ravens' 19-14 loss to the Steelers on Wednesday.

Analysis: The rookie third-round pick put together his second three-catch tally of the last three games, which was good enough to place him second in both receptions and yardage on the Ravens in Wednesday's defeat. Duvernay has yet to top three grabs or 45 receiving yards in any contest, but he's seen double-digit snaps from scrimmage in eight consecutive contests while also continuing to hold down primary kick-return duties. Duvernay will look to reconnect with Lamar Jackson (reserve/COVID-19) for a favorable matchup against the Cowboys in a Week 13 Tuesday night battle.

Devin Duvernay: Snags just one pass Sunday

Duvernay was targeted twice and caught a five-yard pass in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Duvernay started off Week 11 with an impressive 37-yard kick return, and he added a short reception on the second drive of the game. He received his second target of the game late in the third quarter on a deep pass from Lamar Jackson. Duvernay failed to track it, though, and Amani Hooker ended up intercepting the pass. While the rookie third-round pick has shown flashes this year, his fantasy value remains low with no touchdowns and no games with more than 45 receiving yards.

Devin Duvernay: Starting to make impact

Duvernay caught all three of his targets for 45 yards Sunday against the Patriots.

Analysis: The rookie is quietly coming along and getting more involved in the offense. Duvernay played his highest snap share of the season Sunday (55 percent) and has played 99 snaps in three games since the bye compared to Miles Boykin's 75. The rookie is mostly being used on the left side of the formation, mixing between outside and slot duties. Duvernay faces a shaky Tennessee secondary on Sunday.

Devin Duvernay: Barely involved in win over Colts

Duvernay lost a yard on his only carry during Sunday's 24-10 win over Indianapolis.

Analysis: Duvernay logged his first career game without a target versus Indianapolis, and his 25 percent of offensive snaps were less than any contest this season aside from Week 9. The rookie third-round pick was listed as questionable with a thigh injury before suiting up, and he did still contribute on kick returns, so it's possible that the Ravens were simply trying to preserve Duvernay's health with a lesser workload. He'll look to get back on track against the Patriots.

Devin Duvernay: Suits up Sunday

Duvernay (thigh) is listed as active Sunday against the Colts.

Analysis: Duvernay's out there if you need him, but so far the 2020 third-rounder hasn't had steady volume in the Baltimore passing offense, a context that has yielded the 5-foot-11, 200-pouner an 11/129/0 stat line through seven games. In the Ravens' Week 8 loss to the Steelers, Duvernay's lone catch (on three targets) went for a 39-yard gain.

Devin Duvernay: Picks up thigh injury

Duvernay (thigh) was added to the injury report after a limited practice Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Duvernay has been a consistent source of big plays for the Ravens recently, as he doesn't get thrown to often but tends to gain chunks when targeted. Given his previous absence from the injury report, he may have picked up this injury during Friday's practice.

Devin Duvernay: Makes big play against Steelers

Duvernay caught one of three targets for 39 yards against the Steelers.

Analysis: The rookie was responsible for Baltimore's longest play from scrimmage -- a 39-yarder to help put the Ravens in scoring position. Duvernay may start becoming a bigger part of this offense, too. Miles Boykin continues to see his snap share decline while Duvernay played 37 snaps -- good for a 45 percent snap share -- that represented a career-high. Duvernay and the Ravens face the Colts in Indianapolis on Sunday.

Devin Duvernay: Nabs all three targets

Duvernay caught all three of his targets for 31 yards Sunday against the Eagles.

Analysis: The rookie continues to make the most of his opportunities, having caught 10 of his 12 targets for 90 yards through six games. His snap count ticked up Sunday as well, seeing 26 snaps for 36 percent of the Ravens' total offensive plays. Sunday marked the highest snap count of Duvernay's young career by eight plays. The Ravens are on a bye in Week 7 and it would not be surprising to see them try to get the rookie more involved when they return to action.

Devin Duvernay: 59 yards from scrimmage

Duvernay caught both of his targets for 17 yards and added a 42-yard rush Sunday against the Bengals.

Analysis: The rookie showed his explosiveness on an end-around that went 42 yards but that was his lone splash play of the day. Baltimore's passing game couldn't get in gear otherwise with just 19 completions for 180 yards, so Duvernay's lack of output in that facet of the game wasn't necessarily his fault. His speed will keep him as part of the game plan, but Duvernay is still struggling to carve out significant snap counts as he played just 29 percent of them Sunday. He will face the Eagles in Week 6.

Devin Duvernay: Plays season-high in snaps

Duvernay caught one of two targets for four yards against the Football Team.

Analysis: The rookie's fantasy output was minimal, but it's worth noting that he played a season-high 16 snaps. Meanwhile, Miles Boykin played a season-low 54 percent of the snaps -- 31 total -- and drew four targets. Duvernay isn't positioned to overtake Boykin just yet, but Boykin's struggles in drawing targets relative to his high snap count may open the door for the rookie to show what he can do. Still, Duvernay would only be a speculative add in deep redraft leagues at this stage until he carves out a higher snap share in the offense. Baltimore hosts Cincinnati on Sunday.

Devin Duvernay: Scores TD on kick return

Duvernay caught two of three targets for seven yards and totaled 119 yards and a touchdown on two kickoff returns in Monday's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Duvernay had more kickoff return yards than Lamar Jackson had passing yards, and the rookie speedster's 93-yard kickoff return touchdown in the second quarter was Baltimore's only first-half touchdown. While Duvernay's involvement on offense is limited, he's carving out value in leagues that reward return yardage.

Devin Duvernay: Snags another pass Week 2

Duvernay caught his lone target for a 19-yard gain during Sunday's 33-16 win against the Texans.

Analysis: On an afternoon in which the Ravens attempted only 24 passes and ran the ball 37 times, target distribution leveled off behind the top two options Marquise Brown (six) and Miles Boykin (five), as Baltimore's other seven pass-catchers all garnered between one and three targets from Lamar Jackson. The fact that Duvernay is in the mix is encouraging, as he was one of four Ravens wide receivers to get thrown to in the contest, though he only played nine percent of the offensive snaps. Barring an injury on the depth chart in front of him, Duvernay so far appears to be more of a dynasty league addition than a viable fantasy asset for 2020.

September 22, 2020 6:48 PM EST

Devin Duvernay: Makes catch in debut

Duvernay caught his lone target for a 12-yard gain Sunday against the Browns.

Analysis: The rookie got involved early, making his first and only catch on Baltimore's opening possession and his reception helped set up a touchdown. Duvernay wasn't a factor the rest of the way, though, as he ended up with just 11 total snaps and no other targets. He has his work cut out for him in terms of moving past either Willie Snead or Miles Boykin for snaps.
