Ravens' Nelson Agholor: Re-ups with Baltimore
The Ravens signed Agholor to a one-year contract extension Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Agholor will stick with the Ravens after a solid first season with the team in 2023 in which he caught 35 of 45 targets for 381 yards and four touchdowns. The 6-foot speedster didn't enjoy a significant uptick in his overall production compared to his previous two-year span with the Patriots, but his pass-catching efficiency greatly improved, as he had caught just 68 of 117 targets during this stint in New England. He also was reserved into much more of a depth role in Baltimore while playing behind top wideouts Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman and Odell Beckham, the latter of whom currently is set for free agency after he also signed a one-year contract with the Ravens last offseason. Agholor, who is entering his age-31 season, should reprise a role as a depth piece in Baltimore's receiving corps behind Flowers and Bateman as well as standout tight end Mark Andrews next season....

Ravens' Nelson Agholor: Efficient first season in Baltimore
Agholor finished the regular season with 35 catches for 381 yards and four touchdowns on 45 targets.
The veteran was a reliable target in the Ravens passing game as he notched a strong 78 percent catch rate over a 45-target sample. Agholor was primarily used on short and intermediate routes, as evidenced by his 8.8 ADoT. He also had a low target-per-route percentage of 13.1, which ranked in the 17th percentile among receivers. In fairness, Baltimore had plenty of mouths to feed with the likes of Zay Flowers, Odell Beckham, Mark Andrews (pre-injury) and Rashod Bateman all in the fold. Agholor signed with Baltimore as a free agent in 2023 on a one-year deal, so his future with the team is uncertain beyond this season. He projects to have a similar role if he returns next season, but the 30-year-old could opt to hit the market in hopes of landing with a team that will feature him more. Agholor's season is not yet finished, though, as the Ravens host the Texans in the divisional round on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Nelson Agholor: Minimal usage against Jaguars
Agholor was held without a catch (one target) on 27 snaps Sunday against the Jaguars.
The veteran saw his snap count scale back Sunday as he dropped from 42 snaps against the Rams in Week 14 to just 27 (39 percent) against the Jags. Still, Sunday's game was more in line with Agholor's usage over the course of the season than his game against L.A. Outside of the Rams performance, Agholor has drawn two or fewer targets each week since Week 6. Baltimore's primary loadout at receiver consists of Zay Flowers, Odell Beckham and Rashod Bateman, which does not leave much room for significant contributions from Agholor most weeks considering the offense's preference for bigger personal groupings that feature at least one tight end more often than not....

Ravens' Nelson Agholor: Surpringly busy against Rams
Agholor caught all five of his targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 37-31 overtime victory over the Rams.
This marks Agholor's busiest day in terms of targets since Week 5, when he also drew five targets against the Steelers. The veteran wasn't overly explosive with his opportunities, but he was efficient, reeling in every pass thrown his way. The Ravens had interesting usage with its receiving corps Sunday: Zay Flowers led the group with a 97 percent snap share, which is the norm, but Agholor was next in line among receivers with 60 percent. Odell Beckham and Rashod Bateman also each played over 45 percent of the snaps, respectively, meaning that the Ravens were comfortable giving high snap volumes to four different wideouts. Agholor generally vacillates between 35 percent to 50 percent of the snaps, so Sunday was potentially an outlier both in terms of snap and target shares. Baltimore's receiver usage will be an interesting detail to monitor in the upcoming game against the Jaguars on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Nelson Agholor: Makes one grab against Chargers
Agholor caught one of two targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 20-10 win over the Chargers.
The veteran played 41 percent of the snaps, which is in line with his usage rates over the course of the season when the rest of the receiving corps is healthy. Agholor has seen two or fewer targets in six straight weeks and has recorded four receptions for 72 yards and two touchdowns in that span. Even with Mark Andrews' ankle injury opening up plenty of targets to get redistributed, Agholor doesn't appear to be a candidate to see more work. Baltimore is on a bye Week 13 before returning to action against the Rams on Sunday, Dec. 10.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Nelson Agholor: Scores touchdown against Bengals
Agholor reeled in his lone target for a 37-yard touchdown in Thursday's win over the Bengals.
The veteran will miss playing the Bengals again this season as two of his three touchdowns have come against Cincinnati. Agholor has not caught more than one pass in a game since Week 6 against Tennessee, and his touchdown catch Thursday came on a deflection. He is playing a decent amount of snaps, averaging well over 20 per week, but targets are not coming his way often. The offensive philosophy could shift in the coming weeks with Mark Andrews likely done for the season, but that doesn't mean that Agholor is in line for an uptick in usage. However, Odell Beckham's status will be worth monitoring going into Week 12 after he left with a shoulder injury against the Bengals.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Nelson Agholor: Snags touchdown on lone target
Agholor caught his lone target for a 12-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over the Lions.
The veteran only played 37 percent of the snaps Sunday, which was fourth among Baltimore receivers as Zay Flowers, Odell Beckham and Rashod Bateman checked in as the primary options in three-wide looks. Still, Agholor made his opportunity count as he reeled in his second touchdown of the season. His snap count will be something to monitor for those rostering him in deeper formats considering Sunday marked the first time since Week 2 that he didn't earn at least a 50 percent share. Baltimore travels to Arizona to face the Cardinals in Week 8.... See More ... See Less
