Game Overview::

By hilow >>
  • Ravens WR Rashod Bateman missed Week 5 with a foot injury and did not practice to start the week.
  • Giants WR Wan’Dale Robinson was limited to start the week while Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay missed practice.
  • The Ravens appear to be a more uptempo offense if looking at their situation-neutral pace of play, but their 30th-ranked overall pace of play and 32nd-ranked first half pace of play indicate a team whose offensive game plan remains consistent with what we have seen in the past (slow pace of play, lower than average volume, and above average efficiency).
  • The Giants have ridden Saquon Barkley and an above average defense (headed by Wink Martindale) to a 4-1 record.

The Ravens maintain a top-six Pass Rate Over Expectation (PROE) value but we must realize that their expected pass rate, based on game flow and situational play calling, is only 56.3%, which ranks third lowest in the league. That helps explain a low 54.3% overall pass rate and only 29.8 pass attempts per game, each of which ranks in the bottom 10 in the league. The context of those metrics is important, meaning this is not suddenly a pass-heavy offense with bankable volume across the board. Furthering the somewhat unexciting outlook is an opponent facing only 30.8 pass attempts per game. The Giants elevated average time of possession (31:07) and increased rush rates aid in that low number, but the reality is that the Giants remain largely untested, and their opponents to this point in the season have ranked: 32nd, 30th, 26th, 22nd, and 17th in pass attempts per game (the Ravens rank 25th at 29.8). To me, that’s simply schedule-induced variance more than it is a resounding indication of the effectiveness of the Giants defense. All of that to say, we should expect the Ravens to largely be able to attack in their preferred manner, which includes elevated rush rates and a focused, yet low volume, pass game.

The return to health of running back J.K. Dobbins has not yet translated to a lion’s share of the backfield workload, with snap rates through three healthy games of 43%, 50%, and 40%, leading to running back opportunity counts of nine, 17, and eight. Expect fullback Patrick Ricard to continue seeing elevated snap rates on a team that utilizes increased rates of heavy personnel alignments, primarily through the use of 21-personnel (“increased” as in “off the charts,” as the Ravens have run 21-personnel 40% or more in all but one game this year). Kenyan Drake should be on hand to serve as the change of pace/1B option to pair with Dobbins, while Justice Hill is working his way back from injury. The macro view here is any back should be treated as a low-volume yardage-and-touchdown back considering the offense has fed only 17 total targets to the running back position this year (third fewest). The pure rushing matchup yields a well above average 4.64 net-adjusted line yards metric against a Giants defense allowing a gaudy 5.10 yards per running back carry.

Mark Andrews is once again asserting dominance on the tight end position, responsible for a 98.7% route participation rate, a ridiculous 34.1% team target market share, a ludicrous 45.0% red zone team target market share, the most air yards at the position (482), the greatest air yards share (34.9%), and even the most unrealized air yards at the position (241). His 2.37 yards per route run value would rival the elite wide receivers, and he’s playing tight end, for Pete’s sake. To say that Mark Andrews is the focal point of this offense seems like a gross understatement. As such, even though we can’t ever project Lamar Jackson for more than 28-32 pass attempts (he has landed in this range in every game this season), we can assume, with a high degree of confidence, that Andrews can still reach double-digit (and high value) targets in most weeks. This week is no different. Things get a little dicey behind Andrews, particularly considering the status of lead wide receiver Rashod Bateman, who failed to practice on Wednesday after missing Week 5 (typically not a good sign for a return to game action). Devin Duvernay and Demarcus Robinson led the way in snaps a week ago, with Duvernay exhibiting his best “Deebo-lite” impression en route to seven targets and three carries. Duvernay has three offensive and one special teams touchdowns through five games and is a Pro Bowl-level talent in the return game, so the upside is there should his role expand again without Bateman. Robinson is a body on the field, with a low 14.3% targets per route run value and a low 56.4% route participation rate. He has yet to see more than four targets in a game this season. Tylan Wallace and James Proche split situational duties with 13 snaps and 18 snaps, respectively. Even with the injury to Bateman, everyone’s favorite breakout rookie tight end Isaiah Likely only saw 15 offensive snaps.
