Week 1 vs. CIN
Receiving: 1 / 5 / 0 on 5 targets
Heap, who lost most of last season to injury, looked out of sorts for much of the day. While the hulking TE proved to be one of rookie QB Joe Flacco's favorite targets during the course of the game, he was unable to do much of anything with those opportunities as he only hauled in a single catch. Heap repeatedly appeared slow and unable to gain any separation from his coverage, and cost his team seven points when he dropped an easy TD pass in the end zone late in the first half.
Week 3 vs. CLE
Receiving: 2 / 32 / 0 on 4 targets
Heap has not been targeted much by Flacco this year, and today was no change. He did manage to make a move or two on the two passes he did catch to gain 32 yards.
Week 4 vs. PIT
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 2 targets
TE Todd Heap did not bring in a catch in the loss but did block on the line for the Ravens.
Week 5 vs. TEN
Receiving: 4 / 41 / 0 on 4 targets
There has been a Todd Heap sighting. After struggling to make either receptions or an impact in earlier games, Heap finally started to justify his preseason fantasy rankings. While he was only targeted four times, he converted on each of them, including two passes of 14+ yards. He seemed able to find the soft spots in the defense and any question about his ability to take hard hits were dispelled as he bounced back easily from a pair of hard tackles late in the second half.
Week 6 vs. IND
Receiving: 1 / 13 / 0 on 3 targets
Heap ended the day as a non factor, hauling in only a single catch on his paltry three targets.
Week 7 vs. MIA
Receiving: 3 / 29 / 0 on 5 targets
Heap, who has struggled to make his presence felt in the Ravens' passing attack all year, had an above average day for him, which almost included a third quarter TD. Unfortunately, QB Joe Flacco missed the wide-open Heap on that pass. During the rest of the game, while Heap was able to shake free for a few receptions ten to fifteen yards down-field, he still didn't look like the TE that has been a fantasy staple in recent years as he continued his inability to rack up yards after the catch.
Week 8 vs. OAK
Receiving: 2 / 17 / 0 on 3 targets
Heap caught two passes for 17 yards for the day. His 2008 season is quickly becoming severely disappointing, although his production is expected to increase as rookie QB Joe Flacco learns the ropes as a signal caller.
Week 9 vs. CLE
Heap stayed into block on almost every down, and the plays he did leave the backfield did not result in targets to him.
Week 10 vs. HOU
Receiving: 5 / 58 / 2 on 5 targets
Through much of the season Heap has been a massive disappointment, but that was not the case in this game. Heap was regularly targeted throughout the game and was tied for the team lead by the end of the day. Most importantly, however, Heap was regularly getting open and making plays when given the chance. That included long receptions downfield, such as his second catch where he took a short pass at the line of scrimmage and turned up the field for a gain of 20, as well as a short yardage catch at the goal-line for a score. One TD wasn't enough for Heap, however, and he added a second in the fourth quarter as he hauled in an easy 14 yard pass after he managed to get wide open at the goal line.
Week 11 vs. NYG
Receiving: 3 / 16 / 0 on 6 targets
Heap continued being an option in the Ravens passing attack as he saw six targets on the day and was able to bring in half of those targets for 16 yards.
Week 12 vs. PHI
Receiving: 2 / 26 / 0 on 5 targets
Though he was targeted five times, Heap was only able to pull down two for receptions. On the first of these Heap accounted for a majority of his yards when he hauled in a short late second quarter pass at the right sideline, ducked a defender, and then stretched it into a 19 yard gain. Heap's incompletions were a result of a drop early on and some poorly thrown passes, particularly on a second quarter toss where Heap was open deep and streaking but QB Joe Flacco threw the ball too high and behind him.
Week 13 vs. CIN
Receiving: 4 / 39 / 1 on 5 targets
Heap was able to act as a possession type receiver for his quarterback. He was often called upon to run shorter out routes and had a red zone target. Heap was able to score on a beautifully run drag route across the back of the end zone.
Week 14 vs. WAS
Receiving: 2 / 54 / 0 on 3 targets
WR Todd Heap made a beautiful diving catch on a floating pass from QB Joe Flacco. On fourth and one, late in the game, the Ravens sold the running play and then Flacco hit Heap in the flat for a long 24 yard gain.
Week 15 vs. PIT
Receiving: 1 / 24 / 0 on 4 targets
Todd Heap was covered very well by Baltimore. He had one very good reception but had a couple drops also.
Week 16 vs. DAL
Receiving: 2 / 24 / 0 on 6 targets
Todd Heap seemed to run into a bit of bad luck as his first two targets were wiped out due to Dallas penalties. The second target was the most frustrating as only the defender holding him prevented him from catching the ball and scoring a touchdown. He did get a bit of revenge on his next target as Flacco found him open in the middle of the field and hit him in stride, getting the ball down to the five yard line and setting up their second field goal.
Week 17 vs. JAX
Receiving: 3 / 25 / 0 on 4 targets
Heap added three catches for 25 yards over the middle of the Jaguars' defense. His longest catch was 12 yards.
Week 18 vs. MIA
Receiving: 1 / 31 / 0 on 4 targets
Heap showed excellent running ability by taking a short pass for a 31 yard gain to the Dophins' four yard line. He had another opportunity to score, as he was targeted at the goal line, but the ball was stripped from him before he could secure it. Heap was not targeted in the second half.
Week 19 vs. TEN
Receiving: 1 / 23 / 0 on 2 targets
Heap only saw two passes thrown in his direction as the Ravens rarely threw to the middle of the field. He was unable to hold onto his first target as he was hit immediately by two defenders just as the pass arrived. His second target helped get the team into field opponent territory on their game winning drive.
Week 20 vs. PIT
Receiving: 3 / 26 / 0 on 5 targets
Heap was used mostly on short pass routes. His modest numbers could have been slightly enhanced as he was open on a couple of plays where he was targeted but the ball was not delivered accurately.
