The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec believes Ravens TE Isaiah Likely "figures to playing significant snaps from the jump" in the regular season.Likely has gone ballistic in two preseason games, catching all 12 of his targets for 144 yards and a touchdown with Mark Andrews sitting out. Zrebiec said Likely -- a fourth-round selection in the 2022 NFL Draft -- "quickly emerged as a popular target for Lamar Jackson and as a pass-catching complement" to Andrews in a Baltimore offense that should use two tight end sets as frequently as any team in the NFL this season. Likely could be an intriguing pick in tight end premium leagues and deeper formats this season. If Andrews misses any time in 2022, Likely would profile as a starter in 12-team leagues.
