Season in Review

Andrews was having another stellar season before his ankle/leg injury in Week 11 that required surgery and sidelined him until the AFC Championship. That thrust Isaiah Likely into the starting lineup and he became a major weapon with 21 catches for 322 yards and five touchdowns during the final six weeks of the regular season. Charlie Kolar gained experience with 230 offensive snaps, which could help him earn playing time next season.

After many offseason questions about whether Ricard would have a role in Todd Monken's new offense, he still played 39% of the offensive snaps as an extra pass blocker and run hammer. While his usage was down from a career-high 698 snaps in 2022, Ricard's usage was on par with the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

What to Watch This Offseason

This could be the Ravens' strongest starting position group. Andrews has an offseason to get fully healthy and Likely has come into his own while Kolar continues to develop. After making just nine catches in the Ravens' first 11 games last season, Likely is now on a trajectory to be a major piece of Baltimore's attack in 2024. Ricard remains one of the league's best fullbacks, but the Ravens have to decide whether to carry his reported $5.1 million cap hit next season or save $4 million.
